CHUJZ – Low Key / High Power Supra Turbo #1020HP

One of our long time clients and business associates gives us another opportunity to take his Supra to the next level.  Having made 1008 HP in the past with a performance intake manifold system, there was a want for a more consistent and strong idle – especially for Florida traffic with the A/C on.  The big plenum looked great but the factory intake is a performance marvel.  We polished a complete factory setup and re-tuned the car with the new AEM Infinity system.  Our go to tuner – Tune by Lance – took care of the rest with a safe 1020HP at the wheels and a perfect idle and cold a/c!  Building your Supra in stages can be very satisfying – we can help every step of the way.   Continue reading CHUJZ – Low Key / High Power Supra Turbo #1020HP

JDM Styled Supra Update – New Turbo and 2 Step Launch!

One of our good clients brought in his cool custom Supra for some minor work.  We installed a new borg warner turbo for him.  With the new turbo, a quick trip to the dyno was in order to check the tune and confirm safe mixtures in the AEM  computer.  We also set up the crowd pleasing 2 step launch control for that wicked back fire sound.  Look for this Supra on the streets of Miami!

Swap Service : Lexus SC430 + 2JZGTE VVTI PTE 6266 Single Turbo!

The Lexus SC430 has always intrigued us.  It is bullet proof reliable, is based on a chassis that can accept JZ drivetrain, and is a convertible.  It sounds like a great canvas to build up a sick street / show car but the unknown electronics tricky canbus system have scared shops and customers away alike.  We at DRAG International love a challenge and with the help of Brian of Extreme Motorsports (Fabrication) and Jr of JR Wiring Solutions (electrician) we have accomplished our goal to install a 2JZ Single Turbo drivetrain and retain all of the amenities of the Z40 Chassis!!  What do you call an automobile that can drop its hard top roof, encompass you in luxury appointments and melts its rear tires with 2JZ power – A Dream Come True!
