I don't know. Sounds insane. But if I had hundreds of thousands to pour into a car, I wouldn't have a Supra!!!! I'd like to see pics of that. 1200hp V6...sounds sketchy, but who knows. Can that guy fist f*** his exhaust(*) on that Supra??

:( It can and has been done, but I have heard that once you get above about 600 or 700 HP on those cars that your 1/4 ET doesn't really improve much

It that a twin turbo setup or single? You'd need a decent sized turbo for 34 lbs psi. Stock Supra engines are supposedly good for 700 hp before things start to break.

Man Jim...us 87-91 guys are smart and dont try thinking if it is possible!!! the only way that that is possible is by looking in this months super street and peeking at the HKS supra that runs 6'* in the 1320.

are you sure??? i believe it is a v6 7m-gte or a 3s-gte depends on if it'* a tt or a st. same engine that is in the 4 runner(well my moms anyway)but it sure as hell don't make as much power. If it is possible to throw down that much power and your friend knows a guy that did that then it'* time for.......PROJECT 4 RUNNER DRAG SUV I already started project b2000 which is turning my dads b2000 into a show truck(already put in bucket seats ).
