Yeah that is what the HKS GT-Spec headers did for my first gen, especially after a tune. I can only imagine the extra bump up in power and torque for the 2nd gen, itíll be a reasonably quick car.

Yeah 100%, the improved low down torque is the winner here. You do notice the extra power a bit up top, but no where near as much as the low end torque. The tuner did a really good job with it. It is...

Why not buy a first gen and get a header and a tune installed, it’ll still be cheaper than a second gen and a step closer to it in power, though I do concede the 2nd gen will still be quicker.

If money is no option and now that the Supra has a manual option, I’d test drive both to see which one I prefer. The lack of a manual on the Supra was a bit of dealbreaker for me before.

I’d love...

Thatís fair enough, steering feel is a bit more of an intangible and will be down to personal preference. To see if you prefer it or like it less, the only way is to test drive one yourself.
