    • Dishonest Marketing - Titan Motorsports fails to disclose upgraded B58 turbo on 'record' MKV Supra 10.62@129 1/4 mile run

      It is very odd to see tuners claiming records and not disclosing modifications when tuning the new Supra. It is also odd to see this happening only with those using the PTF tuning system or working with HC Performance. Again, Pro Tuning Freaks is posting a 'record' but implying it is their software only getting these results.


      This is dishonest and unprofessional marketing. Last time this happened nitrous was not disclosed for a 'record' pass which PTF and HC Performance were fully aware of yet perfectly fine letting people believe it was software only. This time around an upgraded turbo is not being disclosed. That makes it a pattern.

      Halim of HC Performance ( @lfelunden ) is eroding his credibility and Titan Motorsports is deliberately playing along in this silly game.

      HC Performance intentionally omitting the upgraded turbo:


      Titan Motorsports intentionally omitting the upgraded turbo:


      PTF intentionally omitting the upgraded turbo:


      All of this is done on purpose to make you think their software option is superior to all others for marketing. People are quoting numbers with nitrous or with an upgraded turbo as if they are software only. Exactly what they want.

      Dishonest, unprofessional, and pathetic.

      P.S

      Post the full slip Titan Motorsports.

        Software/ECU Tune:

        TITAN TUNED! We strapped our #TitanMotorsports #A90#MKV #Supra on the dyno yesterday for a baseline tune, the car made 336whp and 368tq. We then loaded our Titan ProTune and managed 390whp/432tq, a gain of 54hp/64tq in the summer swamp like conditions of Orlando, FL (Our Dynojet 424 LC2). An impressive gain and just the start, were currently revising the tune, doing more street testing and hope to have more details and a production ready version for the public in the next few weeks, stay tuned.

        Notice how Titan doesn't correct them? Or point out to anyone saying it is stock turbo that it isn't? Also ignoring all questions about the turbo? Same with PTF and HCP?

        Now why would someone disclose EVERY MOD except that one? Click here to enlarge

        Whoops just completely forgot to list the $15k supercharger kit

        I think The Shop CT has the real stock turbo/no nitrous record now at 10.9 @127mph

        But they are putting a bigger turbo on now tho.

        TPG used nitrous and Titan a bigger turbo.

        And I can only assume they mean they will be running 6s in the 1/8th mile in a year?

        If they are running quicker than 10.9 most likely they are already running 6's in the 1/8 mile.

        they are already running 7.0XX in the 1/8 and they are running 10.9's and 1.7 60fts

        10.62 is definitely in the 6's for the 1/8

        That kid meant in the 1/4. He's mentally deficient.
