    Anyone have an OBD1 TT6 MKIV and wants a G-Force ECU for it? Found one in the garage from an old build, def never gonna use it. I also have a 7675 Billet DBB turbo if anyone is interested. Need to clean out the garage and get some cash to throw at my Mini Cooper lol.

    I'm trying to think of a good license plate for the new Supra. The two that I've thought of so far are NO JZ and //MkV

    Cool. I plan on taking it to my local shop and tossing her on a dyno first day I get her. Attempting to organize a dyno day, though since we don't know actual release date, it's gonna be tough to put together.

    My plans exactly! Hopefully I can get a press car sometime sooner though and maybe sneak that to a dyno. Not sure how happy Toyota will be with that, but it would be good fun! :D

    I'll be honest, I'm convinced they're rating it low. They've done it before with the "280hp gentleman's agreement"

    It’s already common knowledge on BMW forums that the B58 produces about 305whp stock on a dyno or 366bhp.

    I've read its about 380 bhp on the M240i. Some say higher, but the number that I've seen most often is around 380. It pretty much has to be more than 335, if it really does 0-60 in 4.1. The acceleration numbers of other cars with that engine likewise greatly defy its 335 hp/369lbsft torque rating.

    Thats why I was thinking it has more power. I mean, I suppose the gearing could be just right for it to go that quick, but I really doubt that's all there is to it.
