World Record Setting Toyota Supra –TX2K19

April 3rd, 2019

I hope you will understand that Joel Grannas is an exceptional race car driver. One need to look no further than the 9-second testing and tuning rounds to see that. Every quarter-mile pass in this rambunctious, manually shifted Toyota Supra seems more like a series of four or five passes. Each one shooting – crazy and uncontrollable – in a slightly different direction. That’s what racing is like when you have built a manually shifted car equipped with a 1,650hp 2JZ (inline 6-cylinder) engine with a massive turbocharger (50 psi of boost). Under the hood you’ll find a Bullet Race Engineering Read More

Vlad’s Journey – A 1300HP Supra Story

March 3rd, 2019

First things first; this is a beautiful car. As far as imports go – this is a real find. It is a 1998 Toyota Supra Quicksilver Twin Turbo Edition. This is a rare car that has been carefully and skillfully renovated/upgraded in stages. Car owner, Vlad, takes you through these stages and shares some of his thoughts along his journey. The initial round of modifications came as fuel system upgrades and included: Injector Dynamics (ID) 1,000cc fuel injectors in an RMR (Ross Machine Racing) fuel rail with an AEM fuel pressure regulator. The pump is an AEM unit (380-liters per Read More

Toyota MR2 Takes on the Streets

February 3rd, 2019

Looking like a mini Mad Max creation, this Toyota MR2 is a mid-engine powered nightmare for the competition. A murdered-out paint scheme, ground raking stance, and custom wide-body kit give this ride a most menacing appearance. Under the hood, a Honda (K20) engine block, with Carillo connecting rods and CP pistons, has been sleeved and outfitted with a built cylinder head and a set of Stage 2 cams. A Precision 6266 turbocharger (and everything that it entails) is the lone power-adder. A PPG Dog Box (manual) transmission handles the shifting duties and a Pro Jay dual-injector (FIC injectors) intake manifold Read More

Supercharged Camaro vs. Turbo Mark 3 Supra – Street Hits

January 4th, 2019

Greetings racing fans and welcome to a night of roll racing on the streets of Mexico. Featured in this video is a top-of-the-line Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (bolt-ons) rolling out against a heavily modified Toyota Supra Turbo. After the cameraman crawls into the ZL1, it’s on like hotcakes. The driver immediately spills the goods on mods. It has been upgraded with an oversize supercharger pulley, cold air intake, and exhaust headers. He’s running 15-inch rear wheels and E85 fuel. Along comes a Corvette ZR1 to warm up the Camaro, before the Toyota boys roll out. The ‘Vette proves to be a Read More

Import vs. Domestic Street Hits – Supra Vette Mustang

December 1st, 2018

What’s better than some roll racing on a crisp fall night in Mexico? How about 3-wide roll racing on a deserted highway? If that don’t light your fire – your wood must be wet. What we have tonight is a battle royale between a turbocharged Toyota Supra (900 – 950whp), a Procharged C7 Chevrolet Corvette (930whp) from Advanced Modern Performance, a twin turbocharged Ford Mustang (850whp), and a second C7 ‘Vette with full bolt-ons and a kit of nitrous. Mustang is the camera car. Rolling out first is the pony car against the Toyota. The Mustang takes the hit; pulls Read More

Turbo Supra – A Comeback Story

July 17th, 2018

Most everyone loves a good comeback story. Whether it’s a sad, sickly, little runt of a child – down on his luck – that is transformed into a superior athlete or an injured animal that defies odds in a victorious return to former glory; a good comeback grabs almost all of us by the heart strings. The comeback of this tale is a car. A turbocharged Toyota Supra that seemed damaged beyond repair. Much like the $6-million Man or the X-Man known as Wolverine, this Supra would require time, patience, and tons of replacement parts to become the stunning monster Read More

8-Flat AWD Honda Civic – No Prep

July 3rd, 2018

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to the Sunshine State for TRC Street Kings. The star of this clip is a 1,100hp all-wheel drive Honda Civic hatch. If you’ve never seen this capable import before then get ready to start rooting for the FrustrateEG crew on their quest for a 7-second quarter-mile. When DR opted to go with a stock 2.0-liter Honda block, he wanted to make it bulletproof. So, he went with sleeved cylinders at 10:1 compression. He added a set of Drag Cartel 3.2 camshafts and a massive Precision 7685 turbocharger. A triple-disk Action clutch aids in shifting Read More

249 MPH V12 Toyota Supra

June 14th, 2018

It requires a special individual to take matters into their own hands and build a variant of a production car after which an entire generation thirsts. The magical Toyota Supra has been the crown jewel of Toyota enthusiasts every since production ceased way back in 1993 (U.S.). Well, Kazuhiko “Smokey” Nagata is such an individual. Smokey built Top Secret Performance out of the basement of his family business, Trust (parent company of GReddy). Top Secret is responsible for this radical one-off Supra and many other one-of-a-kind speedsters. He was well known for crazy engine and transmission swaps and taking his Read More

2,000HP Supra Pair Go Head-to-Head

June 7th, 2018

This clip brings us (potentially) the baddest pair of Supras that we have ever seen in one place. The place is the Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas (outside of Houston) and the competition is world class. The track (by Jason Miller) is solid and the weather is cool; perfect for No Prep drag racing at TX2K18. Cody Phillips Racing (CPR) has prepared their stoic gray Supra utilizing a 3.2-liter, inline 6-cylinder, 2JZ (Toyota) engine with a Stage 5 Titan cylinder head and aluminum connecting rods. A Precision Pro Mod 94-millimeter turbocharger is responsible for cramming massive amounts of dense Read More

Import vs. Domestic – Supra and Charger Hellcat   

April 11th, 2018

The tale that is told on this video is one of only two cars. It is told with multiple passes and numerous camera angles. It unfolds on the streets of Old Mexico. The two cars featured in this clip are as different as daylight and dark. One is a heavy, four-door sedan and the other is a short-wheelbase coupe. The one rolls off the factory floor with a massive, supercharged V8 engine and the other is outfitted with an inline 6-cylinder as original equipment. Even the hue of these two attention-grabbing street beasts stands in stark contrast of one another. Read More
