    One thing am counting on is that Toyota will not let this car be the one to put a stain on their reputation as the manufacturer to go to when you need reliability.

    I highly doubt it's gonna use something other than Bosch Tricore BMW use on other B58 engines. Realoem shows the same part number as X5.
    All Bosch DME's are already tuneable and the files are out there with the tuners.

    This is the best leak I can find regarding the B58 technical update. It has the most complete information.

    Remember Tada's quote on the club4ag interview regarding the A90 at goodwood "it will be the flagship engine for this car"

    The author states that the Supra will have a revised engine by Toyota:

    It is also worth mentioning that the Toyota Supra, which is on the same platform as the new BMW Z4, does not use this engine, but its body structure is almost the same as that of the B58TU. It belongs to the new engine that Toyota is involved in optimizing the design based on the B58TU structure

    That sounds impressive! I had the same thoughts at the start of their partnership with BMW. Why would Toyota spend so much on a sports car if they would just use a BMW engine, transmission, chassis, etc.? Makes no sense. Same case with the 86/BRZ, though it uses Subaru’s 2.0-liter Boxer-4, Toyota incorporated their D-4S direct injection system. Eventually, expect the same with the Supra. It would have something from Toyota; not just entirely BMW. Especially this would be their halo car, so it should deliver, as enthusiasts are expecting something BIG. It has to be as good or even better than the A80 IMO or else....
