Development of 1000 HP Twin Turbo Kit w/ BW 7163 EFR Indy Car Turbos

For the past year has been in development of the worlds first Borg Warner EFR based 7163 (Indy Car) turbocharger kit for the 2JZGTE. We selected the Borg Warner EFR Series for it’s incredible technology (billet compressors, Ti Beta Turbines, Dual Water Cooled Ceramic Ball Bearing Assemblies, integrated boost and blow off valve control systems, V-band mounting) and more…

Utilizing our ProSeries stainless manifold with dual v-band turbo mounts and dual v-band wastegate mounts for our TurboSmart 40mm gates (smallest footprint and highest heat capacity units in the market) and built from there. The end result is a dual 3″ downpipe feeding into a single 4″ stainless work of art collector with it’s own 4″ diameter v-band mount which feeds into a customers exhaust of choice.

Designed to look amazing, perform incredibly well on the top end, with a very power mid-range torque curve, we believe we’ve hit the nail on the head. Our Borg Warner 7163 2JZ kit also includes dual compressor speed sensors, which measure compressor wheel speed to produce the first of kits kind ‘live data compressor map’. It also allows us to monitor wheel speed which can contribute to boost leak determination.

All of these signals are fed into a ProEFI 128 engine management system, which can activate an engine safety mechanism (fuel cut) when over spinning the compressors. It’s been quite an journey and currently we’re sitting at 900bhp at 29 psi of boost with another 10-12psi to map.

The kit is available as simply as just a manifold purchase, all the way to a complete turnkey assembly.

AEM Infinity 6 vs 8h vs 8 Differences

We’ve seen more than a few inquiries on this lately, and decided to help clear the air some.  AEM has really stepped up their game to the next level with the new Infinity EMS, and offered a few different versions of the box with different capabilities. They make a convenient Plug-n-Play Complete Kit with jumper harness to reduce wiring greatly, which includes auxiliary connectors to plug right in to their UEGO Wideband O2 Sensor Kit and an AEMNet connector to connect to things like the Racepak iQ3 digital dash.

For Supra owners, the only things of note are the Digital inputs (6 vs 8), Analog Voltage inputs (9 v 17), Analog Temp inputs (3 v 6), high side outputs (1 v 2), low side outputs (6/8 vs 10), Nitrous control (single stage vs up to 4 stage), and traction control (2 wheel speed vs 4). Everything else is either exactly the same or simply not applicable for our applications.

As such, we found the full kit to be a bit pricey for most users. As of right now, we offer nearly the same capabilities at a price that’s $700 less. That’s right, a plug-n-play harness and Infinity 6 ECU package for 93-98 turbo Supras that is barely more expensive than the AEM v2 EMS that has been so popular for so many years!

For us, it’s simply a no-brainer. The Infinity is the next step in evolution and capability, and is barely more expensive than the v2 with our kit (check it out for yourself!). We know Supra owners tend to stick to specific brands, specific parts, and only go with the best, so we think it’s important to spread the latest knowledge and information. Expect to see the Infinity EMS on future SupraStore project vehicles…

SupraStore’s Project Lexus SC300 2JZ-GTE

Hello fans, Lonnie here. You know me best as the customer service guru who attends to nearly every order, the voice of the automated SupraStore phone lines, and a Supra fanatic that has had his Supra for over 10 years now.

Recently, I purchased a 1993 Lexus SC300 with a 2JZ-GTE swap done to it already.  The body, for the most part, is in great shape. A/C blows cold, interior is great, car runs just fine, and is basically a much less expensive MkIV Supra in a different, but also very beautifully sculpted body. As with nearly all of us out there, there was no way I could leave it be and not modify it.  Continue reading SupraStore’s Project Lexus SC300 2JZ-GTE
