Here's a little background:
I can remember back, when I was still in Junior High School, when I saw a car in the Yellow Page that caught my eyes. I found out it was a 1986.5 Toyota Supra NA. Six years later I came across a 1987 Pearl White Toyota Supra Turbo. I brought the car home the following week. A few years later and over 150,000 miles ticking on the clock, I thought it was time to give it up. All I can think of was the fourth generation Supra. Just weeks after I sold the 1987 Supra Turbo, my brother saw a 1994 Toyota Supra Twin Turbo in the Friday ad. As soon as he saw the ad, he calls me. I was having a meal at the time, and as soon as he told me, I dropped everything and went out to look at it. The very same day we went to see the car was the very same day I bought it.
The original owner was forced to sell the Supra when he went back to Japan. He left it with a friend who owned a body shop. It had about 24,000 miles on it when I picked it up. The car was practically brand new and stock except for a turbo timer. It now has over 98,000 miles and still running very strong!
My best recorded 1/4 mile time to date at RMR(Rocky Mountain Raceway) is 12.559 @ 113.35 mph with aprox. 16 lbs

of boost. This was during a test and tune session. This new time was set on September 18, 2002, breaking my previous
time of 12.75 @ 111 earlier that year. Not bad for small amount of upgrades and on street tires. Bigger turbo upgrade to
come in the near future!?
Stay tuned as faster time will be posted!
Here is my first dyno ever! Not to bad! First run spiked at 1.23 bar.
Second run spiked at 1.3 bar.
