Hey guys, new to supras but got a question, shouldn't it be better to buy a N/A and just add a turbo onto it? Rather than converting a twin to a single turbo ? Thanks for the reply ahead of time.

people say the 2jzge egnine (MK4 supra non turbo), that engine only can handle around 450HP or 500HP. but the 2jzgte egnine, the supra twin turbo engine can handle alot more HP. some people make 1000HP from the stock short block. so, a supra non-turbo is just like a 350Z. if you plan to get a supra non-turbo, i i would say just buy a 350Z, at least its a new car. and there are some new things.

Intresting

Well now how much are we talking if we convert a twin to a single, cause obviouslly from the results I see, a single turbo produces amazing numbers.

If you plan on building a beast at like 600-700 hp then definately get a TT. If you just want about 400 hp then it would probably be cheaper to buy an NA and get a nice turbo kit on it. If you can do the installation yourself you will save even more. I am not sure exactly just my guess.

i dont know where this info came from but its wrong....with a bigger headgasket to up the compression the internals of the Na and TT arebasically just as strong as each other.... i think the pistons in the NAs are a bit weaker but still can handle amazing power.

as for this age old question just use the search button...theres been like 5 threads about it in the past week alone.

hahaha

That's what I did. I've always wanted a mkiv tt, but I could never afford one until now. I've been waiting 4 years for one and now there's one sitting in my garage. :D

What is wrong damn

Damn, typical reply from a forum, who said I was getting the money from my damn father, I have worked for one, borrowing 7-8k isn't bad, Its not like I have money setup, so the typical thought my daddy is gonna buy this for me is out of the question.

Sundeep, welcome to the forum :) . Don't take offense about the reply. People in your circumstances come on here on a regular basis and ask the same kind of questions, over and over again. People on here already get kind of tired of it.

Actually YOU got off easy.

Just as a suggestion to help you out in the future, try searching and reading before you post. The question you asked has been answered several times.
