Just curious if anybody out there has taken the all-motor, or single turbo bolt on approach to an n/a mkiv supra. Which route would be better for an automatic. :confused:

not when youve been in 4 wrecks and cant afford over 650$ a month insurance on a tt.

Best bet is to get a turbo kit. There are several of them out there. I have a Powerhouse kit, but they quit making them now. Or, get a direct port nos system and spray the shit out of it. :D

if your on a tight budget don't get a n/a supra if you plan on having any performance come cheap. Don't make this mistake!

What does the N/A run in the 1/4?
I've heard 6.9 0-60, and 15.2 1/4mi.

Is this close?

i dont mind the prices of aftermarket parts, i have a lot of close friends who can get me good deals, its the insurance that kills me. A single turbo kit sounds pretty interesting, i just want one that would put me at about 400rwhp.
Anderson:
Ive heard 5speed supras pull between a 6.0 and a 6.9. Im guessing the earlier obdI models would be the ones that pull closer to the 6 flat.

Actually I think the later models may be faster. I'm pretty sure at some point there was a rear-end change for quicker acceleration. Also the newer models have the vvti engine.

perhaps, but if obdII so drastically affected the supra as it did honda/acura i wouldnt bet on it, but im not a supra expert, ill be the first to admit it, it was just a statistic i saw within the past month of drooling over them online. Im pretty sure it was a 1993 or 94. Anyways, what kind of HP gain am i looking at with (HKS cams, Cam gears, ignition, headers, HKS intake, HKS exhaust, ECU chip (jet)) other than an expensive one.

Powerhouse does not have much to offer for the n/a supra. Do the camshafts manufactured by HKS for the supra work as well for the n/a as they do the turbo (50HP gain)?

Could an n/a with the following mods my friend listed have a chance against a stock TT?
1993.5-1995 Supra N/A Auto
Unorthodox Racing Cam Gears
HKS Camshafts
HKS Intake
HKS Exhaust (Cat-back)
Dragon Torque Convertor
Spark Plugs & Wires

:p

Definitely not. I'd look into investing in one of the turbo kits, or a 125 shot direct port n2o. Those are the only ways your car is going to get significantly faster.

Stock NA's ran as good as 14.7 in magazines.

The VVTi NA Supra (1998 was the only year like this) only came in autos to the US....

I agree with Dave H. get a turbo kit...

I may be getting an NA MKIV as a daily driver and selling my Z28 6speed myself....

Once you do all motor, thats it, you've done it all. If you go the turbo route you can upgrade everything over and over again and just build the snot out of the car. An all motor build up might get you 40-50 hp at the crank. WOW, that will put you at 260-270 hp!!
Spend just a little more on a basic turbo kit and you could have 450 hp with VERY LITTLE effort. Then, when thats not enough..upgrade more and have the 600-700 hp that the TT guys brag about all the time.
I personally took the turbo route and would recommend it to anyone with an N/A. IMO, its fun to see the car go from a pig to a crazy monster.

Best description would be, a Sound Performance custom kit with an F-max manifold. :) Stay tuned as it takes another step in the 9's direction! :)

Dave and Dave-

I hear you may both be taking steps to the Ebanks approach to NA-T kits... ;) Is this true? I won't say exactly what I am talking about so people won't know, but I think you two know what I am talking about...

Also, since when does HKS make cams for the N/A motor?
