Man....those things own....I heard about some upgrade kit you can get for it that will make it a 'Vette killer, motor upgrades, probably a blower, suspension upgrades, not sure exactly what all it was but it rocked.

You know why Supra's are so popular?
Because stock Supra engines come with forged steel crankshafts and piston rods and can handle upwards of 900-1000 hp on a stock block, crank and rods. Now, what this means is that you don't have to tear into the bottom end of the engine, which is a big plus and means that doing all your engine upgrades and getting it to 1000 hp, you don't even have to yank the engine! You just upgrade turbo's, heads, headers, exhaust, stuff like that. Thats what makes them so popular and the aftermarket is loaded with upgrades and accessories for them. It's also why you can't ever find one that isn't like 500hp and up.
