While it may have seemed like millions of years since this project began, in only a few short months, our Supra intake's evolution is nearing completion. We've watched it dig its way out of the ocean on to dry land and sprout legs, but now is the time to see if it can breathe out of the water.
Testing intake kits is a multistep process here at Mishimoto. There's more to an intake kit than just a dyno run and pulling the best result from a series of power pulls. For starters, the Supra's ECU … Continue Reading ››
The evolutionary process happens in stages. We humans didn’t jump to the top of the intellectual food chain overnight. We had to traverse that process through plenty of less advanced stages of ourselves. Now, look at us. Ogling sports cars and figuring out the best ways to improve on them.
Our intake has evolved in stages as well, and we’re now at what is essentially the final stage. No, we don’t expect that our kit will become sentient and form a species of its … Continue Reading ››
Evolution is the gradual development of something from a
simple to a more complex form over time. Much like the fish that first scraped
their way from the primordial ooze to eventually develop into the complex
creatures that we are today, the Supra also had humble beginnings. Starting as
just a sportier trim level on the Celica, the Supra has grown to fit into its
rightful spot in the automotive food chain. Even today, the Supra is still
adapting to its environment and developing a better breathing apparatus.
Unlike those … Continue Reading ››
As the legendary namesakes in the automotive world live on, they are forced to evolve with the industry. That old saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” doesn’t exactly sit well with the Toyota and BMW tag team, especially when it came to the Supra’s resurrection. Yes, there is no arguing that the 2JZ-GTE was (and still is) a powerhouse of an engine, but the B58 more than fills the shoes left vacant for the last 18 years. While the car evolves, the formula stays the same. Strong, punchy turbo, straight-six in the front sending all the … Continue Reading ››
