    Thought I might rub this in. Don't forget about the MKIII! They are serious business too. My brother who is a mad Toyota fan ownes a few Toy's and that the MKIII is one of them. He has a very well self tuned Supra pushing close to 500whp and he can hang with Vipers pretty well.

    The funny thing is, he is a BMW speciallist. And Speaking of BMW's, you guys can't mess with the M power. A friend of mine has a Dinnan E36 M3 pushing over 450WHP and he is able to walk Vipers. And don't forget that this car not only go fast well in a straight line.

    I read this earlier on one of the post about varable valve timming, BMW was acutally one of the first companies to develop and use this technology. I think it existed in the mid 80's in BMW cars.

    The Supra is probably the easiest car to get 120+ rwhp for the least amount invested in modifications. It responds to the simplest basic mods like no other car. This is because it is bottled up from the factory. You can take a stock Supra, then unbolt the downpipe and pull the wastegate hose and instantly dyno 420rwhp at a cost of $0. Of course you can't drive as such but it's a simple description of how much hidden horsepower is on tap. My mods are only an exhaust, a ram-air intake, and manual boost controller and I'm now at a best of 12.0@119 on street tires and the car is still as quiet, smooth, and reliable as a Lexus. That's why these cars still sell for $30,000 after 10+ years of existence.

    Hey i have a 88 turbo supra and a 2005 wrx. My supra basically has intake, full exhaust and boost controller running 11psi in 5th gear and 1 less psi for each previous gear. It had other little mods but it was running the stock turbo with 165k miles on it never rebuilt and i managed a 13.9@103mph only taking it to the track two times with terrible traction. I later added a electronic boost controller which holds boost alot better, but i never raced it, probably could manange a 13.7 or so, and thats with a car with a ton of miles on it and still the origional turbo never rebuilt. Not bad for a 16 year old car that weighs around 3600 pounds. Oh and its soo comfortable.

    I think I've seen the Viper beat the Supra in that vid but I've seen more Supras winning, ESPECIALLY from a roll.
    Supra=320hp
    With 2k in BPU mods, your then close to 400hp at the wheels!
    Drop in a single and your limit is how much u can spend.

    I am not sure of what and how much can be done to the incredible STi but I do know the MKIV Supra is probably the most feared street racer...
