Nope, they’re looking for a shouty straight-six, all wrapped in a sleek, low-riding 2-seater body. They're likely looking to turn the A90 into their next mod-machine as well. If you’ve been following our R&D, you’ll already know that our new heat exchanger design, on paper, is also quite the showoff. If you don’t already know that aspect, make sure to head back to our last post, which outlines … Continue Reading ››
It's hard not to be a showoff behind the wheel of the A90 Supra, and we can't exactly blame you either. The car begs to be thrashed, and resisting the exhaust pops is futile.

We’re already deep into this project, so click here to see our plans for improving on the Supra’s heat intercooler heat exchanger.
Nothing shows progression in technology quite like integration. The means of creating one item that performs the function of four is the way of the future. Just take your mobile phone that you’re likely reading this on. Fifteen years ago, it was just a phone designed for talking and texting, with some limited internet access, and now it’s a computer in your pocket. Similarly, the intercooler inside of the B58’s intake manifold is a pure form of integration in the name of performance. The marriage of these two components, though, means that the intercooler’s heat exchanger is now … Continue Reading ››
