    • TPG Tuning first in the 10's with bolt on tuned A90/MKV Toyota Supra B58 + nitrous - Platform record now 10.7@128

      Some misleading info out there and we are trying to sort it out. TPG Tuning is indeed the first into the 10's with the new Supra. Their modifications are a tune, cat delete, unbolted rear section, and drag radials.


      There are those who were at the track who say nitrous was used but TPG Tuning has not specified their mod list and we are not sure why.


      This is the platform record but it would be nice to know if nitrous was used on this pass and what shot of nitrous:


      We also do not know if nitrous was used for the first 10-second pass:


      Hopefully we get clarification from TPG Tuning.

        I just don't get why they won't say it:

        Lame as hell when a tuner does this. They use nitrous to hit a record and then don't tell anyone and act like they did something special.

        PTF is shady as hell too for acting like they got this car into the 10's when it was a big shot of juice. You were right to call them out.

        Not a big deal, It is perfectly natural that nitrous is first to the 10s.

        Nitrous was the first real power adder that hit the n54 platform and several were using it until hybrid turbo options hit the scene.

        Nitrous Oxide is the cocaine of engine tuning. Great bursts of power, short engine life.

        You don't get it. Perfectly fine to use nitrous.

        The issue is not admitting it.

        Of course it's natural. So why delete the comments and not say so?

        PTF acting like it was their tune only doing this is exactly the problem. Go and look at comments on social media and people think this was with bolt ons because they specifically omitted mentioning the juice and deleted comments from people who said it was with juice.

        It depends how it is tuned. This isn't really accurate. You can have nitrous setups that last longer because the extra torque is used sparingly compared to say a constant hit to the rods from a big positive displacement blower.

        Nitrous also helps compensate for DA which is nice.

        Based on what we know from other rwd platforms with similar drivetrains, there is no way the Supra is getting into the 10’s unassisted.

        I have no idea why people think the stock turbo is providing 128 miles per hour by itself.

        Still puzzled by why they won't just state it.
