With that being said, 300whp is pretty high for the FA20 engine. The rods aren't as strong as the one's in the FA20DIT from the WRX. I believe 240-270whp is the sweet spot with this car and it's weight.

Look into the ACE 350 Header with an Ecutek tune. That should net about 20whp safely.

In terms of supporting mod, you'll want an oil cooler, gauges (boost, AFR, oil pressure), gauge pod to hold your gauges, catchcan, an ecutek tune and device. If you include all that with your FI kit, you'll be looking at around $7k-9k with installation. I don't recommend doing this until your powertrain warranty is out.

As for SC or a turbo..that is up for you to decide. Tons of threads out there about this topic. I personally like the SC route for the instant throttle response and boost.

Best SC kits for our car would be the Jackson Racing, Edelbrock and Harrop. Best Turbo would be JDL and Fullblown. This is just what I've gathered from hundreds of hours of research before boosting my car.

I SC'd my car and it all costed me $6k. Good luck.


Nice synopsis primo (ᵔᴥᵔ)

Not sure how much you purchased your car for but it sounds like a Supra MKV would've suit your needs/wants. By the time you put X amount in your car it would've equate to a Supra MKV and a happy face.

However you'd like to call it. I'm a supra owner myself(not MKV). I wouldn't go into details on why there is no 3JZ from Japan. Just glad that it is finally released so people can stop complaining on that and then focus on complaining some more about other things instead of having a solution to the makers/market.

An MKV makes more sense as well especially that the owner is in California and eventually will need his car checked and it ticks the box he's looking for.

aite peace

Was considering a supra before getting this car but found it was way too futuristic looking and I'm not happy that it's a rebadged BMW. I'm not a fan of BMW and would rather stick with a pure JDM car.

This.

Development money is and has been shifting towards EV, HEV, and transmission tech.
