The J specs are down 40 hp from US versions.. lucky to break into the 13's with intake and exhaust.

Don't believe the hype from the supra boys. A BPU supra is good for mid 12's. They claim 400+ RWHP on BPU but alot only put out about 360 RWHP. Import Tuner magazine did a BPU for 366 RWHP with no cats. My RX-7 (400 lbs lighter) with BPU and no cats put out 320 RWHP and it could only dip into the 11's with drag slicks. Mid 12's with street tires. And Supras are notoriously difficult to launch.

Those supra boys talk so much... people are starting to believe their stories.

I only know how ugly a Supra is from the front... I assume they are as ugly from behind.
