Shops New Supra Project


Here is the project as it was a few months ago. Its a 94 Supra TT, it was basically (BPU) Basic Power Upgrade and was putting down maybe about 320whp on the stock twin turbos. It has a TRD widebody kit on it which needs to be cleaned up. When the car was originally purchased it apears that the kit was just slapped onto the car without any detail on a good clean fitment, and the wheels where also not the correct offset and sit well inside the fenders. About 100k miles on the original motor.

The project as it sits now, engine and tranny have been pulled so the car can be repainted inside and out. Also having a TRD Carbon Fiber wing installed to replace current wing and having radio antenna shaved off as well as the windshield wipers. As you can see the car was black and was repainted without having the engine bay painted to match.

The only way you can tell that this car is twelve years old is by the dash. Other than that Supras still retain amazing and up-to-date looks.

The wheels we have coming in are HRE S40 Series in a 19 X 9.5 front and 19 X 12.5 rear. This is a picture of a polished wheel, we have a black center with a polished lip coming.

Hummm, Im not sure about 18X8 very different price on those things in a smaller size. On their website 18X8 are about about $1,295 each they are more for custom paint and center cap.

We should hit a little over 700whp on the current setup. It is a manual, the TH400 is for drag racing and can be used on the freeway, the streets not so much...

Nice but I have a few questions.

Why did Comptech USA do the headwork? Id figure youd go to someone else besides someone who does Honda's.

Also why get HRE's? Is this gonna be a trailer queen? Ive heard the the reputation of HRE's arent so great as far as build quality goes. Thats what I last read unless they have drastically improved.

My bro-in-law has a MKIII with a TH300.

Interior parts just need to be painted and the new front fenders are just about done. Once that stuff is all installed we can brake in the motor and get the exhaust made and it is done.

Comptech did the head work because they are a very good shop. While most people know them for building street/racing Hondas/Acuras they also build racing engines for other manufacturers as well. I was also able to look at a few engines that they had done in the past and was impressed with their work. I also like supporting good local shops rather than sending the head out of state.

We got HREs because there arenít too man companies that make wheels in the sizes and offsets we needed. The only thing bad I have heard about HRE wheels is that they cost too much, which is true.

No this will not be a trailer queen, no point in building a car if your going to just end up towing it around with you everywhere.

HRE's are banned from track usage for their prone failure rate. If you search around there's quite a few high end sports car forums that can attest to it. They are said to be made of a lesser strength aluminum. Granted those wheels are tracked, but for that much money, youd better be getting some quality wheels. You can track Volks, which are considerably less, and im sure the failure rate isnt as high as HRE's. They are fine if you use them for show thats why I asked if the car was gonna be a trailer queen. Plus what Supra isnt one! :P

I think iForged is a pretty good company. I dont know if they offer custom sizes though. Im not rich enough to look into it.

Well we arent too worried about them failing at the track, we have different rims and tires for that, lol. And, I have an auto TT supra that I wouldnt consider a trailer queen at all. I drive that thing up to meets in Sac and SF whenever I can get away from work and school

Got in the downpipe and exhaust today.

4" Downpipe

"Muffler" not much in it doing muffling... My arm goes all the way through the muffler which basically just has a 4" hole through it. From the side the muffler actually looks quite small.


Cars original downpipe which is 3" versus new 4" pipe
