    My n54 made 500 ft-lbs @ 2200 rpm with catless downpipes and a tune, these figures seem completely reasonable for those doubters of modern turbo bmw engines.

    Speaking of the trans, is it the 50 that is the Supra?

    I think Tada-San and Toyota had a poker face this entire time. "Gentlemen's agreement V2.0" ;)

    My only worry is that this car doesn’t behave like it makes those numbers. I have seen quite a few videos and it launches very decently. I’d expect a car with those numbers to do be a tire shredding monster.

    So either it doesn’t make those numbers or it’s dialed in perfectly

    It's "underpowered" because it's a BMW engine. :D

    hmmm, not so much!

    Don't hear much hate-speak now from the web. Imagine that!

    It's all about the balance Tada is always lusting after/over.

    I think it's actually about somebody knowing how to launch a car instead of going HAM. LOL

    Well, launch control can really help obviously with avoiding tire fires off the line, but sadly, so does an auto. Clutch dropping 426lbs/ft would be dramatic. But for sure, I'd like to see these dyno numbers verified on another car. C&D was wondering if the torque converter was locking right at the torque peak, but I don't see how a slipping converter would result in higher numbers.

    Ha, I knew it! That torque curve looked too similar to what those old restricted race cars did.
