I haven’t showed you guys any modified Supra in the past couple of months, so I decided I write about one. This Supra is owned by Nagahama-san of N-Style and it was built to drift. He used to own a Toyota Soarer powered by a 1JZ engine.
Being a drift car, the suspension department needed some upgrades, like the Aragosta adjustable suspension and the Eau Rouge Type-2 knuckles. This was needed in order for the car to handle big drifts.
Exterior modifications aren’t that obvious, Nagahama-san did a good job in being subtle. He added a front lip spoiler and widened the front fenders by 20mm. This was necessary to fit the 9×18’ SSR Professor wheels. In the rear they measure 10×18’ and have a +17 ET. The tires of choice are Haida Racing HD921, measuring 215/35R18 upfront and 235/35R18 in the back. Other exterior mods include N-Style side skirts and the rolled rear fenders.
As far as the interior goes, this is a very different approach than other drift cars: it’s not all stripped out, there were actually some add-ons. A Bride leather seat took the place of the stock driver’s seat. The steering wheel was replaced with a Nardi piece and a double-DIN JDM navigation system was installed, along with five HKS gauges and a Blitz SBC boost controller.
This project was meant for drifting after all, so the engine was also given some attention. Nagahama-san replaced the cams with a pair of HKS 272-degree camshafts and HKS adjustable cam gears. In order to get a noticeable power hike other modifications were made, like installing a Trust T88-H34D turbo with a Trust Type-C external wastegate, installing a Trust exhaust manifold and the one-off exhaust system, changing the fuel pump with 2 GT-R fuel pumps that use 850cc/min injectors, installing a Blitz triple-core intercooler, a Koyo radiator, a HKS oil cooler and a HKS F-CONV Pro engine management system.
This setup is good for 700hp, which makes sure Nagahama can have tons of fun with his car while going sideways.He also upgraded the transmission with an OS Giken triple-plate clutch, a TRD differential with a 3.7 final gear.
