V8 torque

Hi all, just so i dont get anyone upset, i am a ford fan and V8's are best sounding engines by far, but the sad truth is they are not the quickest thing out there anymore.
A friend of mine, who i used to work with, bought a Supra RZ twin turbo, ok nice car, but i am V8 man, and this things missin 2 cylinders.
He scared the living bejesus out of me whilst i was riding shotgun, and after finding out that this thing is near original spec, and capable of a low 10sec quarter i was amazed.
I did some research and found out that this model was rated at 320bhp from the showroom, and enough torque to sink the old windsor.
The only mods were, free flowing exhaust and a quality boost controller(controls waste gate) and the result was around 280rwkw, enough to smoke any width tire. Needless to say, this thing was very quick on acceleration, and weighing in at 1500kg's, was a definate V8 killer, even GenIII's, no match, i cried, like when glen seton dropped a valve at bathurst 95. Not to worry though cos i can assure you all i will not be buying anything less than 8 cylinders, my work ute excluded.

Bring on the twin turbo boss

Re: V8 torque

yeah, those are very quick, but my friend has a 90 GT mustang, tremec t5 and worked up 5.0 pushing 638hp TO THE WHEELS! NO turbo, NO supercharger/procharger, NO N2O! and above that it does it on pump gas! (high octane of course)

the plan i have for my 66 stang is a 351 pushing about 700-800hp, just enough ponies to blow the doors off these little ricers out this way! LOL!

Re: V8 torque

i own a 97 Supra RZ twin-turbo, and yeah, its fast as hell. itll blow half of ur V8s right off the track. im runnin the stock turbos, but new Greddy Exhaust(stainless steel of course), intercooler from Greddy, cold air intake from turbonetics, and a stage 3 clutch from Roush. and im pullin a 10.18 on the quarter at 147 mph. it scoots. V8s have the power, but not the speed on the top-end.

Re: V8 torque

Nothing that can't be done with an XR6 Turbo. 10's aren't excessively costly to achieve.

of course its not, but im almost runnin stock, name a car other than my Supra thats below $15k thatll do that stock, and then ill be impressed. oh and it must be from 1995-1998.

i love V8s, dont get me wrong. but i love my straight 6 too. its fast, loud, and pulls like hell off the top end. the high-end torque is amazing.

Re: V8 torque

I just stumbled across this thread by accident, I do a lot of turbo stuff, and have a couple of mates with Supra's, one of them is a TRD fancy pants one, and I even have a customer with a 2JZ in his Escort, but I find it really hard to believe that a stock Supra with an exhaust cooler and a boost controller would run 10.18.

No offence but I would really love to see that time slip, and under $15,000 thats prety hard to believe.

That Escort is a full chassis race car, with basically a Crower engine, he has run 8.77, and can run 8.50's but it don't weigh 1500kg. it would take an engine like that to push a 1500kg car into a low ten, and 147mph, well it would need even more of an engine! I can tell you there is more than $15,000 tied up in the escort engine.

I've been racing for 16 years, and my current car runs 9's, it weighs 3300lb which is basically 1500kg, and I know I've got 650hp at the tyres, with everything set up for the track. So for a 1500kg car to run 10.18 with a manual, at 147mph you would need about 820hp at the tyres, and at 140mph you need to fit a chute (standard drag rules).

I haven't seen to many supra's with chutes.

Next problem would be finding traction with the IRS, I use to run a 280ZX with a chev on the bottle, we had to make our own tripple rate springs to get the car out of it's own way, so to think that the factory suspension would carry a car down the quater for a 10.18, well it's just hard to believe, I know of a couple of ten second ones over here, but they ain't standard, and $15,000 well, I think they would have spent more than that on their turbo/intercoller plumbing!

Like I said I would love to see that time slip, and if it has run it, really how stock is the car and the engine.

Oh and BTW, they don't make to 2J's anymore, but they do make the 4.0L Ford Turbo's !!!!!

Re: V8 torque

Twin turbo a V8 and you'll know all about it, we are about twin turbo's. If ya get a Supra take the turbos off and two cylinders you have a lazy 8. Any engine under boost pressure will perform.
There is only two types of engines, Small block and Big block V8.
