With the hype of the Toyota Supra launch subsiding, attention now turns to the tuners who will be rubbing their hands in anticipation. The previous-gen Supra was very tunable and hopes are high that the new one is just as responsive. A South African tuning outfit is claiming 310 kW from its Supra project.
Gauteng-based RG Motorsport are well-known for their bakkie and Mustang projects, but have started working on the all-new Toyota Supra.
Powered by the B58 3.0-litre straight-6 engine, the Supra develops 250 kW and 500 Nm from the factory. However, RG Motorsport have developed a Stage One upgrade comprising a dual Techniflow 76 mm stainless steel exhaust, decatted exhaust downpipe, performance air filter and a software remap. RG Motorsport claims 310 kW for the Supra on the dyno, putting that power figure somewhere around the 350 kW mark.
That's not all though as there's more to come. RG Motorsport is working on even more power with a revised intercooler arrangement as well a larger turbocharger.
