Not to flame but IMO those old supras are realy ugly and those two pipes coming out of that one car is
besides that supras are some of the most overrated cars ever considering you have to drop a good $30,000 dollars in mods to make them as good as everybody makes them out to be
BTW I would take a ZO6 over any of those

I would take a Z06 too, but considering most of these Skylines cost around $10k CAD, there'* a bit of a price difference.

The one with two pipes does look a bit over the top, but it sounds REALLY nice, and is pretty quick.

Explain. No, seriously. There are more than just the 1993-1998 generation of Supra, FYI

Dear god. I love domestics, but I hate this retarded, baseless "anything imported must be sucky and slow" attitude. Do some research and learn that just because it wasn't made in America (and even that isn't absolute anymore) doesn't mean it'* a Honda Civic or equivalent.

Those are micro-level examples. Your supposition applied to the entire genre of "imports." There are fast imports, and imports with problems too, just the same as there are fast domestics, and domestics with problems too.

Simply equating all imports to be somewhat "handicapped" compared to domestic vehicles is flawed.

He'* doing something wrong. Very wrong. If you messed up, you'll blow a 4T60/4T65 every 10,000 miles also. Any fool can crank up the turbocharger'* boost to far beyond stock, much like anybody can slap a 3.0" pulley on a Series II L67. If you don't got the supporting mods, you got trouble.

President of the Toronto Supra Club daily drives his '89T in the summer with 650 to the rear wheels. It'* one thing to not prefer the other end of the spectrum. Mindless assumptions and bantering, on the other hand...

It'* more of a figurative thing in response to the 10k head gasket. Push too much power through something without preparation and it'll break.
