The folks over at RGMotorsport has already put together a tuning package for the new Toyota Supra, saying their stage one upgrade will push peak power “close to 310 kW”.
The Randburg-based tuner suggests there’s plenty of potential in the latest Supra’s BMW-sourced turbocharged 3,0-litre inline-six, which produces 250 kW and 500 N.m in standard form.
RGM’s stage one upgrade includes a 76 mm “Techniflow” stainless steel exhaust system (as well as a decat downpipe), the benefits of which the firm realises by remapping the B58's electronics. The result, claims the tuner, is a “characterful” exhaust tone and a “plentiful supply of extra kilowatts”.
How much extra, you ask? Well, add a performance air-filter element to the mix and RGM says the A90-generation Supra will “edge close to 310 kW” (no peak torque figure is quoted). That lines up nicely with the upgrade offered by Litchfield over in the United Kingdom.
Interestingly, the South African company suggests it’s already working on “further electronic upgrades” and a “hybrid turbo”. So, stay tuned...
