Titan Motorsports 3.4L Stroker Kit for 1993-98 Supra
In stock and shipping now!
From the builders of the NHRA Pro Rear-Wheel-Drive (RWD) tandem 2JZ-GTE cars and one of several 8 second Supras comes a kit that is designed from the ground up to unleash the ultimate power and performance combination that the 2JZ-GTE longs for.
Designed in cooperation with Crower, this billet Crower crankshaft, with an 8mm increase in stroke to 94mm, increases the supra displacement in conjunction with the CP pistons by 0.4 liter just like the HKS. Couple the stroke increase with the inclusion of big bore specific-designated CP pistons in 87mm at 8.5:1 compression (various compressions can be ordered) and Titan has created a 3.4 liter building block to unleash new levels of power, quicker turbo spooling and torque that Supra enthusiasts the world over have yearned for.
You will receive: Crower Billet Crankshaft 94mm, CP Pistons 87mm , Upgraded Wrist Pins & Rings, Crower H-Beam Connecting Rods, and SPS Carr Connecting Rod Bolts.
Your Price: $8,349.00
Titan was originally working with Crower, however after waiting ages for Cranks and the kits taking forever to get delivered they had to look else where and built their own kit with the help of thier race division. These kits are different. IMO the opton to buy a completed shortblock already assembled make the Titan kit a very nice choice.David (NJ) said:Except that the Titan kit includes the same crank, rods and pistons as the Crower kit...parts from Crower. I should also point out, that Crower pieces are pretty top notch.
Alex D said:That is like asking why Carillo rods are more expensive than eagle rods. They are the same length rod and both H-beams. Part of the price tag is the name and reputation behind it. They can command a premium because people are willing to pay it. If it makes you feel any better, the HKS is more expensive than the titan kit now.

V8 Killer said:Carrillo rods cost more than Eagle and Crower rods because they are 10 times better. Why do you think every single quick Supra in the history of Supras uses Carrillo rods?Eagle is not an equivalent rod. However Crower, Carillo, Lunati, Dyers are all good rods. Once upon a time Carillo was the only game in town. That was a long time ago.
Are these rods 10x better than Eagle? Well, the machining and material control is certainly better. However, many people find the Chinese Eagle, Scat, and Compstar (which is sold by Callies) adequate.
And at most that would about to a $500 difference, since you do sell both. Carrillo doesn't make their I-beam rods with the same pieces as their signature H-beam. Crower does. And the Crower RBT Maxilights may just be a better rod design.
I was expecting an answer such as they are custom CP pistons that match Titan heads (which apparently have unique valve sizes), maybe higher strength material shorter and lighter pins with casidium coating, maybe ultra flat and smooth ring grooves with ultraflat and smooth finish rings. Maybe a Total Seal gapless top ring. Maybe a Napier second ring. Maybe a special design oil ring to deal with high crankcase pressures. Maybe coated bearings (although that would only add $100 or so.)
David (NJ) said:Nero,
Thanks for the input. Agree with the damage, including the car. I understand asking a premium--$1800 in this case--for researching, testing, and assembling the parts.
However the Crower's also come with top bolts, AMS5844. Dusty seems to be saying that the Crower parts are inferior. Inferior to the point of causing an engine failure with all the nasty related results. Is that correct?
Are there any special parts or configuratiuon that are the result of that testing and development?
sp auto supra uses crowers rods if im correct ?V8 Killer said:Carrillo rods cost more than Eagle and Crower rods because they are 10 times better. Why do you think every single quick Supra in the history of Supras uses Carrillo rods?
The HKS kit is $8,399. The Titan kit was $8,349. Titan raised their price to $8,895. So the HKS kit is still cheaper. Our website now reflects the Titan price increase.
