In the interest of saving time, I won't go into the details and I'll just wait and answer any questions/concerns/objections/bullshit/flames that you guys might have. Some nice comments would also be great :D

This is at 23psi:




Here's the video. Check out the FRONT BUMPER on the WHITE car behind me as the run is almost over. Check out the ORANGE GLOW... that's what 500 whp will do through a 2.5" exhaust!!![/size]

MAJOR OVERSIGHT!!!

THANK YOU RANDY (Freelance)...

THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your help and all the effort that you have put into being my Pointman in Miami. And THANK YOU for hosting my dyno and video till I get the website up and running.... Oh, thank you again for helping out with that, as well 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Also, thanks to Dan (dt1313) for helping me out with many of my initial questions and I know that you would've been there if you were in Miami.

Thanks also to Peter Farrell for his straight forward advise and honesty prior to my decision and for all the good work that he's done for the IS community.

Also, thanks to Jarred at PHR for his honesty and openness about the Motec and excellent advise.


Of course, thanks to Lance at Toyomoto for doing such an excellent job as always.

I know I know, it's not like I won an Oscar! But I've taken up these people's time and I owe them AT LEAST a simple THANK YOU.

It does sound like godzilla, and if you pay close attention to the exhaust you'll see that it throws a little flame there at the end!!

NO, I'm not using stock rims... I only shipped the car to Miami with those rims b/c I didn't want to risk damaging my others:

BBS LM 18" x 8 & 9.5 with S-03 225s and 265s

Sweet Mother Of God!!

That is some mad ass HP you got there. I actually saw your car about a week ago at Lances shop, and he said it was going to be really inpressive. He wasnt kidding.

What additions to the "regular" stage II do you have?

Built bottom? Toyomoto Header package?

Great job at picking a tuner, and you show some class by thanking the others that you did not go with.

Any plans to take this monster to the 1/4??

Thanks for all the kind words. About the additions, the T-70 is not standard with the stage II neither are the supra TT internals and head gasket, and of course the TRD lsd is added on as well. No headers or 3" exhaust. That alone would give me another 30 - 40 whp but I'd rather have a nice sounding car with the Greddy EVO that's on there now.

About the 1/4 mile, I don't really drag race, but I'm sure I'll get into it. A couple of friends at work are regulars so I'll go with them when I get the car back.

Just curious - how long did the whole "transformation" take??
Like I said - have fun with it!! Sounds amazing! Crazy numbers, wow.

Did you have any extra tranny work done too?

p.s. If you need some more help with that website, drop me a line, I'll be back in a week or so.

i dont mean to sound harsh or possibly dumb...but it looks like that "orange glow" is the brake lights...if you look a the center garage pillar, you can see the light is red, and is tapped a few times while revving the car down... :roll:

still one hell of a beast thou!!! :eek:
