Hello All

Post by Dim Sum on Wed Jul 08, 2015 8:43 pm

Just want to give a quick introduction and say hello to everyone.
I came across this forum through another member who I meant twice in person who told me about this forum.

I drive a Toyota Supra mk4 and almost finishing up with the engine work. I have my final remap tomorrow and I am hoping to have at least 650BHP+ at the hub. I have own this Supra for five years and I had it from stock and every work I have done on it are either with a friend or by myself.

My plans for the car is a tidy up and maybe fit a small little sound system in the car. If I am lucky enough and I can find a AE86 I would like to
start another project.

I try and get a few pictures later

Thank you all for your positive comment. Dave's Supra will be the rarer one with the V8 conversion. Can't wait to see it in person.

Won't make it, the Supra is off the road for a little bit. A slight coolant leak near the water neck so need to sort that out. But mapping all done Smile

620bhp at 1.2 bar of boost. Need to get some new coil packs before another remap to reach my power goals.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] thanks for you kind words. Still need to clean up the bay and other smaller bits which bothers me

The 620bhp is at the flywheel which is roughly around 570bhp on the hub.
I want a 650bhp at the hub so it means I need 740 ish bhp at the flywheel.

I should be able to achieve that. My mapper said at 1.5 bar it hit 700bhp but misfired a few times so I need the coil packs sorted and go for another run.

Sounds really bad, but I don't feel the pull. I don't know if its because I have been in a faster Supra but at the moment even with 620bhp is feels slow to me. Also has it stands I ain't lose any traction yet, it could be the warm weather.



If you even want a ride in it, I be happy to take you up or the down the road at full boost, once my water neck gasket arrives.

I did notice there's a monthly meet so maybe on one of the club meets.

I just re-read my post. Someone call the grammar police Smile But I am glad you made sense of it lol

I've been in a 900+ Supra and that was fast. But I think I could be heading down a slippery slope if I continue chasing the numbers.

I just watched a video on youtube, heres the link:


Maybe I should just be content and appreciate what I have.

But I honetly think If I get my power goals I would honestly stop.

How much does your car weigh?
Weight is a killer on accelaration..
Loose weight before pushing engines.
power to weight is the intelligent accelaration goal..

pop along to dick turpin on a wedns or monthly meet id you need advice matey.
