I tested a supra turbo this weekend. It was pretty nice, only 1800 dollars. Ran perfect, but It had 187 thousand miles. No sign of a bhg though. I drove it kinda hard trying to get the temp to rise and it did not. When I shifted into second, it did not chirp though, and that was around 6 grand, I am wondering if this is normal. Thanx

I don't think a stock turbo will chirp second, cause I running about 14 psi and i just get a little squeak outta second (unless its raining, then the whole ass comes out ), is it building boost at all? does it start easy? does the turbo spool decently quick? how about compressoin...does it have some off boost power?

Your running 14psi and you only get a chirp outta second?

On 9psi with intake, dp, and exhaust I totally slide out if I redline in 1st and punch into second...and I have Goodyear GT4's on...

Must be the dense Minnesota air for ya.

Yeah, my clutch was slipping pretty bad at around 120k kms, though only under a lot of accel.

After doing all the upgrades last winter (intake/downpipe/afm/injectors/mhg/clutch) chirping in second was extremely easy, after changing to some new Bridgestone S-03's it's a lot harder to do (which is good IMO), but it's still possible.

I'm guessing it's either the clutch, a clogged cat or something, or maybe he's got some real grippy tires on there combined with something else maybe... dunno

stock MKIIIs are slow, deal w/it.
He's right.
I can chirp second in my N/A, easily. I can get more than a chirp as a matter of fact. Now a turbo should be able to spin them on the shift for sure. Only thing preventing it would be worn clutch or bad driving.

Not nessisarily! Turbos have to spool to make power, so, right after a shift, thier isnt a lot of power...

True, but id say when it drops back to 4000 RPM( rough estimate) in second its still pretty well spooled. Idk, my turbo is automatic;)

You don't need power to chirp the tires shifting gears, just a heavy stock flywheel, a quick shift, and a strong clutch
thats it right there...strong clutch is definately needed. when me and brysta89 were at about the same power level(~280 whp) him with a spec stage 3 and me with the stock turbo, he could chirp through 4th and i could only manage 2nd...after that you could feel the clutch slip. so yeah i would say clutch, and it probably has good tires too...with worn out tires my first supra could spin in second....at 4psi and chipped turbo fins...
