Hi guys and girls,

Just been speaking with Nat and said i'd join up Smile i'm 25 from Milton Keynes and currently have a very rare 98 Toyota Supra SZ-R 6speed (took me about 12 months in which time this was only the 2nd one to come up for sale), I also model part time for various agencies across the country doing underwear and fashion based stuff aswell as helping out some other models with their portfolios doing some couple based shoots.

Big Plans for the Supra i'm currently in the process of buying a second engine to rebuild with forged internals and a mid-frame single turbo which will give me around 600bhp to the wheels which equates to around 740bhp to the flywheel Very Happy

Here's some pics of my Supra i'll save the modelling ones for another time lol Razz




and a few from a meet we had this weekend at Meguiars Headquarters in Daventry





Look forward to meeting and working with some of you guys and girls at some meets and shows across the year

Haha if i get it hot enough she does but still having 1 cat in there kinda hinders it, she will definitely spit flames when the turbo conversion is done though Twisted Evil

stock kit mate, the side skirts were a option from the factory (it should also have some rear spats but i've removed them as they look a little too Halfords stuck on for me) however i'm getting some Blitz ones to go on soon but i will be modifying them slightly as i don't like how they sit lol, then on the front i've got a lip which is a Wings West copy made by a American company called MVP Motorsports which i had to get shipped over from the states and again i've had this lip modified slightly on the sides so it sits flush on the bumper.

Mines the NA at the minute but it's a rare NA with the 6speed box from the Twin-Turbo which can hold well over 1300hp, i'm currently rebuilding a second engine with a single turbo that will see me in the region of 650-750hp comfortably lol so will be an absolute animal once it's built Very Happy

haha nice mate, if you get a NA manual the box you tend to find is the 5speed W58 which is made of chocolate lol, a friend of mine has a turbo conversion on his NA and he's blown up 3 of these gearboxes and only running 365bhp.....this is why i took a year to find one of the rare ones with the 6speed V161 box as when I put the turbo on i know it's capable of holding more power than i'm aiming for.

The scary thing is 650hp is childs play in supra terms, the stock bottom end on the 2JZ-GTE is capable of holding around 850hp before you need to start using forged pistons/rods, the Supra was heavily over-engineered and the original prototypes of the mkiv had around 700hp from the factory but Toyota dialled the power back by fitting smaller turbos for a few reasons, 1- it would have put the cost of the car up too much and 2-the Japanese fair trade agreement between the major manufacturers Toyota/Nissan/Mazda which all agreed to cap the power at 280bhp which they all lied about as the Supra/Skyline make 320bhp stock.

Bit of a history lesson there so apologies for that lol but i'm a bit of a encyclopaedia of knowledge on the Supra especially haha Laughing

haha you sir have yourself a deal Very Happy urm not sure when i'm next up mate as i'm awaiting my 8pot KSports to arrive so don't really want to take anyone out in it at the minute as i myself don't like driving it as 2 of the front pistons are currently seized and while it's only NA it's still a lot of weight to try and stop lol.

Add me on FB and i'll let you know when i'm next up mate - facebook.com/DanSupraHarris
