    Yeah because no car comes over from Japan with an exhaust.

    No. That's stock ecu/jdm twins.

    I get it, you'd have to basically build your driveline to hold that much power without having 'is today the day my car blows up?' thoughts in the back of your head every time you drive it.

    Luckily for you you never drive it, so no worries.

    That would be a valid threat if your car ever seen a track in its life ;)

    Oh no, not me haha. I would probably not personally beat a stock supra because I don't have the driver mod lol

    Still have this. It's in my garage 5 hours from where I currently live though. Shell is pretty much ready for paint, finally decided on a color. Meeting with a painter to take a look at it next time I'm around there. Brought the engine home with me, tore it down, sent the head out to get decked and checked over.

    Installed some upgraded springs, titanium retainers, did valve stem seals, and shimmed for my new cams. Just have to decide what to do with my bottom end. Needs to be decked for a new HG either way. Building it up with new rods, pistons, mains is about a $5k venture with today's dollar. On the plus side I wouldn't have to worry about it ever again. On the other hand I'm sure I could make enough jam with the stock bottom end to keep me happy.
