2011 Bullseye BBQ

We took the ’89 Toyota Supra up to the 2011 Bullseye BBQ today.  While at the BBQ, we were able to participate in two dyno runs.  Our goal was to get on the dyno in order to get a baseline of where the car’s numbers (HP/TQ) sit right now.  I guessed it would be in the 300+ range at the rear wheels and was not disappointed.

Here are the two youtube videos of the runs. In the first run, the driver’s side PCV line blows out and in both runs the HKS SSQV is leaking intermittently at the high end which is also evident in the graph above:

Next Stage of the Project

We’re getting ready to start the next stage of the project.

  1. We’ve picked up an MR2 electric power steering pump setup which should arrive Monday.
  2. We’re waiting on confirmation whether a seller has five of the eight green top Supra injectors in which case we’ll only need three more.
  3. We are also waiting on confirmation of another seller whether our bid for his/her two CT26 turbos is acceptable.
  4. Finally, we’ll be putting in an order for a Megasquirt III kit with MS3X expansion card in June or July.

The plan?  Put together a twin turbocharged 1UZFE by the end of August. Wish us luck!

New Supra has Arrived

I was reminded that I have not updated the 1UZ-Powered Supra blog in some time. All has been quiet on the 1UZ-Powered Supra project this year; however, we did pick up a second Supra with a built 7M to share the garage with the 1UZ-Powered Supra:

New Addition Arriving Next Year!

Yes, you read it here first.  We have put a down payment on another Supra.  I have known the owner since before he acquired the car, worked with the owner in the past, and now he is storing the car in his facilities until March when we plan on finalizing the purchase and moving the car to our storage facility. This MkIII Supra has a well built 7M-GTE power plant and will remain that way under our ownership.  This will provide us with two Supras with contrasting builds to show together at various events.  We’ll post more later.

2010 28th St. Metro Cruise

This year’s 28th St. Metro Cruise was excellent! The weather was fantastic and the turn out was exceptional. The 1UZ Supra was parked at the Toyota of Grand Rapids lot and as in years past drew lots of interest and questions. Enjoy the pictures from the event.

I’ll be taking the Supra to show at the Import Face Off event being held at the US131 Motorsports Park in Martin, MI this Sunday, June 6. Here are the event details straight from the Import Face Off web site:

Update: New Radiator

Took the Supra out for a spin today. Went to South Haven, then up the coast to Holland, wound around to Allegan where we did a circle around Allegan’s Dam Road, and finally returned to Kzoo. Great company, excellent drive, fantastic weather, and no leaks from the new radiator!
