7.6 Second Supra
From The Owner
I have liked drag racing since I was a kid. I finally was able to get a Supra, which has always been my dream car. My supra is a RHD original JDM car built by South Florida Turbo & Engine, ATFSpeed, and myself. This car was built after I sold my last car, known as the "Black Pearl" Lexus SC300.
The Supra was always a car that I knew could be fast. My car has all the right parts you need to be a effecient bracket raced import car. The list is very long but it is a 2JZ, powerglide transmission with a IRS Ford 8.8 rear diff. Engine management is handled with a Haltech computer, and boost is provided by a custom 76mm turbo via South Florida Turbo & Engine. We run 50psi of boost and combine that with a 200 shot of direct port nitrous. It runs 7.6 seconds in the quarter mile all day long. It is very consistent in the 7.7 to 7.6 range and trapping over 179mph. The car is a lot of fun.
All the mods have been acquired through shops in South Florida. South Florida Turbo for the engine and turbo work and Atfspeed for the transmission and rear end kit which is a billet aluminum cover and mount system for the Ford 8.8 rear swap. Suspension by Afco, and Strange brakes complete the chassis. This car was a street car and daily driven until we decided to take it up a notch.
The 2JZPOWER.com website was an inspiration as it featured all the nice 2JZ powered cars from all over. This car was built quickly, in less than 2 years with help from my buddy Chris Gore from SFT and Jason Gatlin from ATFspeed.
Thanks to Chris Gore for his knowledge and awesome engine work. Jason Gatlin for his crazy awesome transmissions set up, and my best friend Carlos Monero. Kings Performance, JR Wire solutions down here in south florida, my family and lots of old friends from Puerto Rico for cheering me on and providing good info about the import drag racing world.
