Pardon me folks, big Supra noob here.
I have an '89 single turbo, bone stock.
Was just curious what you guys are running at what mph in the 1/4 with just an intake and full exhaust.
Any other basic bolt-ons I should look into that aren't too pricey, downpipe?
This is just my daily driver, but it would be pretty cool to be low 14's in it.
I assume it's about a low 15sec in it's stock form.
Yes, I am aware of the search button, help me out eh. ..

man, i really need to start readin' the forums i guess.
sorry for the lame-o Q's.

1. EBC = ?
2. What does removing the turbo elbow do?
3. Can a local shop that does tuning do anything for a ride like mine, and if so, what can they adjust?
4. Do i need a boost controller to up the boost, or can that be done at the shop too?

doesn't the stock turbo only put out like 6-7psi? what am i safe to, 10?
it has a low mile JDM engine and new head gasket, so i'm not trying to blow them up.

dbsupra - i'm a big bttf fan too, obviously.

ebc=electronic boost controller, removing the turbo elbow, eliminates the elbow which gives you less back pressure, and gives alot more hp, or he could have meant get a new dp, i dont really think you have enough mods to get it tuned yet...and shimming the wastegate raises the boost, and a dp will to. Make sure the engine can handle the extra power before you mod of you will get a bhg. who knows if they actually are low mile jdm engines. prettty hard to tell, unless you strip it apart

are 2.4-2.6 the 60' times i should expect?

i have a 3rd gen trans am as my fun car and i'm used to 2.0's, close to 1.9's.
it's amazing the difference between a low end torque car and a top end car like the supra.
but where my car falls flat and stops breathing at the end of the 1/4, i'm sure the supra will keep pulling as it does on the freeway.

no i havent actually! it seems i developed an oil leak, oil feed line copper crush washers with that banjo bolt! its not bad but something i dont feel comfy driving on! so when i do my MHG job ill replace it since i'll have everything off! in the middle of paint and body work with my car now so its sitting most of the time with an occasional crank up for a few minutes but im just tryin to get the car looking decent and then i'll worry with more speed! that was full weight btw spare and all! and i think i had a boost leak as well at the time! we will be able to tell for sure if i take it back out! also i had no boost controll either

When you go try for the 12 second run, BoostAddctn you gottta get it on cam, lol i want to see this. Thats an awesome run 13.5 with only those mods. Sweet, what color are you getting it painted justin? After you do the BHG what other performance mods you got in mind? jdmuscle, 160 across is good, you should be fine with those mods then. Just dont turn up the boost too much
