twin supercharging?

do you mean turbo charging?
IIRC the 1gge is a somewhat lower powered engine, and i think the parasitic losses from two superchargers would just kill the poor thing off.

twin turbo charging would be very expensive, and very complicated, i doubt youll end up happy with any kind of twin charging system, be it turbo or super or a mix of the two.

my advice would be to go single turbo or supercharger, and get it running reliably, then, and only then if you decide you want more juice, start looking at adding another turbo or supercharger.

re: 1G-GE

We'll, these websites have a little info on it and would give you a start:

http://www.geocities.com/MotorCity/Pit/9975/tm_index.html

It'll cover the basics of the engine size, power, years of manufacturer etc....... Nothing too indepth, but like I said, a start. Check under the engines section, then scroll down.

Click the XX symbol on the left to goto the specs section. Will need Babel Fish or some other language translater to read this site as it's all written in Japanese. Has some cool pics of the different MKII engines. Good luck.

Sonny

edit: I tried to link it for you and past it here, but the link doesn't cut and paste from the Babel Fish site, so you'll have to try it yourself.

Not if you swap in a 1G-GTE, which is twin-turbocharged from the factory. :) This is without a doubt the cheapest and easiest power upgrade for a GA61 Supra, especially since the guy is from NZ where this stuff can be picked up for a song.
