NOB Edition Coilovers

leave a comment »

Yup that’s right. NOB aka Noberatu Taniguchi has his own edition of HKS coilovers. I hope they make some for the Supra as I will purchase two sets. One to possibly to put on and one to keep as a collector’s item. Hmm. Another Supra in the works? Maybe! I have some ideas floating in my head.

Just thinking

leave a comment »

I was just thinking about the Supra project while the shop is pretty empty. I mean there are a lot of things going on with it. Full Race fired off an email to me this morning. They just finished the manifolds to fit my HKS 3240s and they look amazing. So far I am the second person to run twin 3240s. The first person was my inspiration after seeing the horsepower numbers. Plus I figure I’ve always had single’d Supras, why not go twins? They’ll have to arrive in pieces so I can do final assembly, but it is a true work of art. My Hypertune manifold is in too. Just the runners are out getting powdercoated black per my asking.

There is a lot of chrome, paint, and carbon fiber under the hood.  I’m just surprised how well this all coming together. My quad plate OS Giken clutch came in as well today. I have it sititng on my desk right, assembled, and it’s tiny to how I thought it would actually look.

The daily updates from Brian Crower aren’t bad either because they are actually doing the porting and engine work to get their stroker kit to fit. While a head is off in Jersey at HeadGames getting the Brian Crower valve train and 280 cams to fit. All of the stuff is supposed to be here in the period of two days. The Full Race and Brian Crower boxes will be dropped off by UPS on Monday. OS Giken and HeadGames will be here on Tuesday. While I should have the car on Monday night.

So I have the equation down.

HKS + Motec + OS Giken + Full Race + Brian Crower + HyperTune + HeadGames = Success.
