K4L4SHN1K0V is on a distinguished road
A couple of years ago I bought a red '98 Supra MKIV RZ with the V16x manual transmission and t-top for dirt cheap and it's been in storage ever since. I'm planning on making this thing a 500-600hp beast that can still be used as a daily driver but I have yet to find competent manufacturers in my area that are comfortable dealing with such a rare car. If I someday drive down to WI with it will you be able to build and install custom parts and if so could I get a rough estimate of what it will be costing me? Please PM me the details.

redline i would think or the 3.8 crowd to apease thm and easily so ..an intake...real cold air or ram/ headers without cats...and rear 02 bungs to fool the computer and a catback with dual duals....i know everyone love the titianium tip look...but for looks vs cost i'd stick with 4 inch ovals..or the stock tip incorporated in the package.

and a tune of some sort...to rid the torque management issue of tagging the redline and thats it....get the 3.8 six speed just past 300-315 rwhp and i'm sure they will line up in droves.


I've driven the 370Z and its quick... the 3.8 with these mod will be quicker.

Also a quick upgrade to the track package...slotted rotors for the brembos and better fluid and lowering springs......so as too match the almost supernatural 370Z .99 g lateral capability.

doing this on the 3.8 first will get people interested in the 2.0 t quickly...but as we all know.....there will more involvment (R&D)with creating a 320 rwhp turbo than with a 3.8.

get em hooked with a fairly kick ass 3.8 as well as continuing 2..0t products...IC, ic piping and downpipe along with exhaust and intake and injectors is always agood start.
the turbo seems extremely easy for swapping..but then the ecu...or piggy backs...which can start to add up cost quickly......soon i think many will wish they opted for the 3.8

and wait for the converson of Z parts for the Genesis....apt tt / s/c ect.


I as everyone here am torn between the V6 or the 2.0T i know it has more potential...but most people are inpatient........offer up a quick solution for the 3.8....as the hyundai salepeople not knowing any better will push it as the power car. And likely produce more v6's so later they will be discounted more heavily.

Later various versions of what have been used on the 350 and the the G37 as far as forced induction can be easily modified to work on the 3.8. acutally the 3.8may have a full advantage as the 350z has been around a long time......so the format of the parts are already out there....they just need specific applications for the genesis.
