  1. Exhaust noise and burble almost gone

    I've changed the catback to the HKS one on mine and had sent it for service in February. Sounds the same. Not sure if the catback is just burble crazy or my ECU didn't get flashed. (Also have a high flow down pipe, but I never thought it added much to the noise). Regarding exhaust. It is...
  2. Phantom Matte Gray Owners, Manifest Yourself

    I think reflectors are an American thing. I am in Australia, no reflectors on the Supra or other cars here. Not sure how you guys feel about it, but I am happy we don't have them.
  3. KW Coilover DDC

    Its been many years since I have sat in an S2K, and it was stock. I don't remember the suspension being particularly stiff, but the feeling is different, when you brake/turn etc which I attributed to the weight of the car. From my personal experience outside the A90, KW coilovers (even the club...
  4. KW Coilover DDC

    Spring rate information doesn't seem to be provided. That said, there isn't a specific spring rate. Front springs are progressive. Rear springs are linear (but has a pre-spring and a main spring). Personally, I find for adjustable coilovers (like these ones), spring rate is not a major...
  5. KW Coilover DDC

    Sorry, I install car parts myself, as I am a bit pedantic, have collected the tools over the years and enjoy it enough that I typically don't find it worthwhile to get someone else to do it.. (I do regret it now and then though) Installation wise, its pretty much the same like a normal coilover...
  6. HKS Exhaust tip alignment

    Its a bit different for us and the US cars which has a different stock muffler... I found the exhaust really got much louder compared to stock exhaust. The downpipe effect was minimal comparing stock to catted aftermarket IMO.
  7. There are 2 catalytic converters in OEM downpipe?

    To my knowledge, AA guarantees no CEL. I have no idea who got a CEL running it, did they check the error code to make sure it was the cat? Either way, this is a irrelevant/distraction to OP's question. I.e. one cat is sufficient and that the second cat should not be relevant for CEL as there...
  8. There are 2 catalytic converters in OEM downpipe?

    Yes, it should be fine in theory. Aftermarket catted downpipes (like AA), do not have the second cat and does not trigger CEL. If exhaust sound is your main aim, I would first look at setting the exhaust flap open all the time. Then changing the exhaust tip, before removing the cat honeycomb...
  9. KW Coilover DDC

    They are preset by KW for the DDC PNP (apart from ride height) for the Supra, basically a street and track setting. I personally found it spring rates fantastic when I took the car on track with the "Sport" setting and keeping up on corners with lighter cars (BRZs/Miatas/Elise). You lose the...
  10. Track Day: Front rotors grooved

    Grooves are not deep (1mm max depth?), no vibrations when braking, squealing or metal on metal sounds. Brakes feels normal TBH. Brake fluid is still at a good level and looks new. Brake pedal does not feel long either... I don't think I need to do a brake fluid flush at this point. I didn't...
  11. HKS Exhaust tip alignment

    They were aligned when I installed mine. Perhaps loosen the flanges, try to allign them then tighten the flanges back up.
  12. How to Improve OE Sub Bass Quality and Eliminate Vibrations

    It was pretty easy to be honest. Just push it through and wiggle it until it fits correctly. You can tell it isn't fitting correctly because it doesn't feel even...i.e. some parts are hard and compressed.
  13. Track Day: Front rotors grooved

    Hi all, Had my first track day at Sandown Raceway (Australia) on the weekend and had a blast on a beautiful day (see photo). Best lap was 1:28.085 on this 3.1 km track with stock tyres, which I felt cemented the car as a good track car IMO, as I am an amateur... Anyway, the track is known as...
  14. KW Coilover DDC

    No, it is stiffer. That said, daily driving, I only really notice it on speed bumps.
  15. Supra Bump Steer fix...

    It isn't a RWD exclusive thing, FWD car suspension can be designed with bump steer too. Personally, I haven't noticed it on the A90, so there is a reasonable chance you haven't too... but for my 135i it has been noticeable a few times when on bumpy roads. Fortunately, that was a relatively easy...
  16. Supra Bump Steer fix...

    Just saw this technical video: I thought it is worth sharing since there was some concern about bump steer issues previously: Previous Thread: https://www.supramkv.com/threads/toyota-supra-ruined-by-bump-steer.5377/
  17. REXPEED: 2020 Supra V1 Carbon Fiber / Forged Carbon Side Door Garnish is Now AVAILABLE!

    Installed Gloss CF sides. Removing the stock ones were the most annoying bit. Fit was pretty good (I would have liked the top of the horizontal edge to be 1 mm higher). Anyway judge for yourself , left and right side was identical.
  18. New (and old) SupraMKV members say hello!

    Welcome. I was ok with the plate placement. There really isn't an ideal place for it, and I preferred the tow bar going where the tow bar should go. For the last year, car itself has been both a good drive and you get alot of interested randoms asking about it. Worst part for me, is the...
  19. Did you know

    Did you know... That if you pop open your boot (button on driver's door), it will lock up when you close your door... Not sure if security is worth the inconvenience on this one... which braniac came up with this?
  20. "Supra" OEM Puddle Lights

    FYI for Australians. Part is available through Toyota dealer network, but not through BMW. You need the part number. Costs about $275.
