"Well, it all started when I had an NA Supra.
wanted a TT Supra, so I sold the NA, in search
of the a TT Supra. Insurance prices stopped me
from buying one, so I looked for what I liked
second best, the Altezza!
took me about 3 months to find a decent one,
but in that time, I had already purchased a set
of buddy Club Wheels and Eibach springs to put
on it, once it arrived. Finally Got it, and already
had the kit, I drove away, loving the first couple
of days, until the performance bug hit!
car, was just so slow, didn't like to rev etc,
it did everything better than the Supra, except
for straight line performance, While I had close
friends, driving a GTR, S15 and a TT Supra, I
felt left out.
I set about doing some performance research.
I had bought a Trust PEII Cat back exhaust, and
SARD filter kit, but this wasn't enough, so I
looked at some supercharger kit options, or turboing
the motor. After talking to a mechanic, he said,
it would be probably cheaper, and a better package,
if we use the 1JZGTE!
all began, March 2004, I sent the car away, had
already bought the motor, and the mechanic started.
The mechanic was very lazy, and hardly worked
on the car, nearly a year later, its finally
it being tuned with a Haltech E6X ECU, hybrid
Intercooler, and 3" dump back exhaust, the
car reeled off 180rwkw @ 10 psi. At the time
the car was getting built, I got rid of the Eibachs,
and got some Tein Flex coilovers, the TEIN EDFC,
, TRD Sway bars (Yellows) JIC/Cusco front and
rear strut bars, this made a great improvement,
on the already rail like handling car. The car
is everything you want, performance, style, handling,
4 doors. A sleeper too! Already surprised a WRX,
HSV and 350z owners!!
Future plans, are to get dump pipes made up,
Trust Cam Gears, Boost controller, Seats and
a brake upgrade. That should keep me happy for
a while ..."
