  1. Is a manual transmission in the cards for the new Supra?

    I expect you're right, though I would expect making a different case and output shaft with the rest of the internals could be done relatively easily. It's not going to happen, but it could be done, haha. Jeff
  2. Is a manual transmission in the cards for the new Supra?

    TSS 2.0 exists with MT's, but of course they aren't using BMW hardware for any of it, so there would definitely be a development cost associated with it. Reliability/quality/drivability standards are also things to be considered for sure, but I'd love if Toyota just said screw it and gave us...
  3. The A70TTR Dedication Thread!

    I suspect the IS F is coming, and possibly pretty soon, but I could be wrong of course. Jeff
  4. 2021 Lexus IS Sedan + IS500 F SPORT

    Sorry, I was a bit loose on the dates as I was using production years and not model years and was sort of grouping the the Avalon/Camry/Solara together. The 2005 model year Camry used either the 1MZ-FE (3.0L, 210hp) or the 3MZ-FE (3.3L, 225hp) in the SE. That said, the 2GR debuted in the 3rd...
  5. 2021 Lexus IS Sedan + IS500 F SPORT

    I suppose that's true, 250hp to 260hp for the non-VVT-i and then up to 290/300hp for the VVT-i version, depending on model. The 2IS debuted in 2005 with the 2GR-FSE and 306hp, the same engine continued into the 3IS in 2013 with 306hp, and was replaced by the 2GR-FKS in 2017 with 311hp. I agree...
  6. 2021 Lexus IS Sedan + IS500 F SPORT

    The 2GR-FSE had 306hp and was used in the IS350 from 2006-2017, and was replaced by the 311hp 2GR-FKS for 2018-2021. Lexus does seem to be playing things a bit too conservatively on the engine front these days, but really when haven't they? Lexus used the 1UZ/3UZ engine relatively unchanged for...
  7. Toyota "Preparing" Hotter Supra GRMN, Says Chief Engineer

    I would go 2.0 to get a manual for sure. Can always add the other stuff later... My Lexus IS250 6MT the day I got it: New grilles, headlights, side skirts and front/rear spoilers: Larger front and rear brakes: 3.73:1 open to 4.10:1 Torsen T2 LSD and TRD mounts: Stiffer shocks...
  8. 2021 Lexus IS Sedan + IS500 F SPORT

    I could see it being either the V35A-FTS or the 2UR-GSE. The LC500 has the 2UR, the LS500 has the V35A, though I think part of that was that the LC F was supposed to see something more interesting than the 2UR, so then the question becomes do they make an IS500 with the 2UR and an IS F with...
  9. Is a manual transmission in the cards for the new Supra?

    If given the choice between the 2.0 with a manual and the 3.0 without, I would go 2.0. Hate when that's the choice I have to make though. Jeff
  10. 4 Cylinder B48 Supra vs the Straight Six B58

    I would like to refer anyone who has a big problem with the 2.0L in the new Supra to the monstrosity that were the 125 hp 1G-E and 160 hp 1G-FE-powered GA70 Supras. Haha. Jeff
  11. 2020 Supra Documents Added to TIS

    It's pretty typical to be honest. In the US, buyers associate smaller engines with the "cheap" version, and often want the larger engine or larger car if they're going to add better options. It's the same reason cars like the Yaris are only sold as the cheap economy version, etc. whereas in...
  12. 2020 Supra Documents Added to TIS

    Yes, the 2.0 is available with open diff, LSD, or TVD in other markets. Jeff
  13. 2020 Supra Documents Added to TIS

    Yes, the 2.0 is an open diff and the 3.0 has the electronic torque vectoring LSD for North America. Jeff
  14. Rename forum?

    With the USA-spec 2.0 using the B46B20O, should this forum be renamed B46/48? Jeff
  15. Is a manual transmission in the cards for the new Supra?

    Not a sports car, but I was very happy to see that the 2021 Ford Bronco is available with a 7-speed manual transmission. Perhaps there is still some hope. Jeff
  16. 2020 Supra Documents Added to TIS

    2021 North American-Spec (Canada/USA/Mexico) Quick notes: Full 3.0 engine model is B58B30O, replacing B58B30M. Full 2.0 engine model is B46B20O. 3.0 0-60 mph time is listed at 3.9 s, down from 4.1 s. 2.0 0-60 mph time is listed at 5.0 s. Canada/US 3.0 curb weight is listed at 3399 lbs, up...
  17. Toyota part numbers for Oil Filter and Special 0w-20 oil

    For anyone wondering, the oil filter for the B46/B48 2.0 is 04152-WAA01. Oil is same for B46, B48, and both versions of the B58. Jeff
  18. Supra 2.0 B48 VS Supra 3.0 B58 Exhaust Comparison

    Probably makes no difference to the sound (though who knows really), but the 2.0 in the US-spec Supra is a B46 not a B48. Jeff
  19. Is a manual transmission in the cards for the new Supra?

    I could be wrong, but I'm about 99.8% sure that every GRMN model to date has been manual transmission, including models that didn't come with a manual transmission (Mark X for example). Of course that will change at some point because, as has been stated, manuals are dying. Still, I have hope...
  20. Is the 2020 clear coated?

    I looked into some various bulletins and have found that even for the same colour in the same year, Toyota would sometimes use clear and sometimes not, depending on the factory. For example, 1997 Camry with 202 = single stage, 1998 USA-made Camry with 202 = two stage. 1998 Camry made in Japan...
