Project 2JZ goes to the drags!

Hi all,

I finally got around to running my Supra down the 1/4 mile yesterday. It's now running ~18psi boost with a fuel cut defender and a bleed valve, so it feels goddamn fast on the street. I just wanted to find out exactly how fast! I ran it on the dyno in the morning and got 302hp at the wheels, so that suggests a 12 second pass, depending on traction and driver ability. :)

Anyway it was a busy meet so I only got two runs in before I gave up and went home. The first run I bogged down badly and hit the rev limiter a couple of times, but the raw horsepower saved me from too much embarassment - 12.997 at 114mph. Just scraped into the 12's, woohoo! Needless to say I was very impressed that the car ran a time like that even after I botched it so badly.

The second time around was much better - I used a lot more revs off the line, and kept a better eye on the tacho. I had to back off a bit in second as it started axle tramping, but apart from that it was a near perfect run. I recorded a 12.49 at 117mph! Pretty damn impressive stuff considering I'm running the standard engine, turbos and ECU. I can't help thinking how easy it would be to get into the 10's (big single and management should do it), but that's a lot of money...

So there you have it, I've proven that I have a 12 second car. I doubt I'll take it to the drags again though, I just did it out of curiosity. Next on the upgrade list is a TrueTrac, suspension and brakes. Methinks the engine has been upgraded enough already. :)

Oh yeah, I should have pics and vids soon... stay tuned.

12.49 sec pass on a mk2 :eek2:
:hail: - ----------> Norbies 12 sec. mk2
wow Norbie you got it made man, good job

I will be looking forward to the Vids and pics of your monster :wink: :yumyum:
Very nice. Congrats!

Great Job Norbie! We have been following your project for a quite some time and are very proud of what you have done. You may not be the first to put the 2JZ in the MK2, but you certainly shared a lot more of your experience than anyone else.
Congrats! 8)
Wow Norbie, now thats what I call THE THUNDER FROM DOWN UNDER! (without the G strings) Awesome work.

Holly Squatting Batman...that was beautiful. Congratulations on a job well done. You a truly an inspiration to all Supraholics :clap: :dancin: :clap:
HOLY ....!!!! You are the MAN, Norbie. Like someone else said others may have done it but only you have shared every moment painful or joyful and we appreciate every one of them, thanks.
Nice. Was this on street tires?

And damn, that was one annoying comercial in the background, lol.
Yes, that was on Yokohama A509 225/60x14's. I lowered the pressure a little in the rear tyres but apart from that I was running in full street trim.

Yeah I was a little pissed off my Supra was nearly inaudible because of a goddamn McDonalds commercial! :x
Damn! :shock:

That is way cool, Norbie! Uh... You know I will definitely be expecting a ride when I return! I will leave the piloting to you though!

Good job, man!
Damn dude...that fuc ker goes! Aussie-land must be a great place if people are dragging Cressidas :lol:

When I was at the Toyota Nationals earlier this year, there were about 5 or 6 Cressida's with 1JZ and 1UZ conversions. It was pretty funny watching an old man's car blowing away old school V8's on the street. :D
i love the wheel hop, lol :)

I'll just sit in the corner and drool now. :mrgreen:

:shock: dayum Norbie... nice work man. I can't wait to see the vids
