Brian’s 300HP MKIV Supra

That’s nothing for a turbo supra. But this one is Naturally Aspirated…
Brian and I met over 10 years ago. I was at Barnes and Noble with my very stock ’95 Nissan 240sx that I drove during high school. He was in his Supra. Being from Mississippi, seeing one around at the time was rare but seeing one that was loud, loped at idle, and had TE37s, was a very rare treat. We struck up a conversation immediately. He started telling me he owns an FC RX7, and another car, a Chevy Baretta GT. I’ve rode in all these cars and, I’m not lying, his Beretta GT is amazing. But that’s for another story.  He once took me on a late night highway blast, I literally had PTSD thoughts of Smokey Nagata’s wangan run (lol). I actually like an N/A setup like this more because of the response. Instant low down torque! I was hoping to get an engine sound clip during my visit but it was in February and the car was sitting up during the winter.

Brian has owned this Supra since the year 2000. He bought it from a friend for $9,500 with 69,000 miles; it’s a 1995 year model. After all this time, it now has 96,000 original miles. It was completely stock at the time and he’s done all the work on it. His day job is working on and restoring classic European cars. This car is mainly used for track days and auto cross events. He’s driven this car at TX2K Supra track event a couple of times as well. Let’s get into the car setup!

  1. Does anyone know the name of the shop? I’m trying to do something similar with a 7MGE and it would be great to get in contact with somebody who has experience.
