We in the UK don’t get the 1,2 or 3GR. Biggest Toyota engine sold here (from a new Toyota) is the 2.8l diesel in the Land Cruiser Prado.Its funny how they are trying to force the government to open more hydrogen plant stations. However, this topic is done.
There are always reasons why you want to develop an engine in comparision to B58. Every company wants to one up. That is why they are going back to i6s. This is business. This is competition. Also, you do realize that this "tunability factor" is still "grey area." No one has hands on this car to tune it. People dont realize how difficult it is to MAP a car.
Go ahead Tune you car. Toyota wants you to do that. VOID WARRANTY
A basic search shows that the development of i6s from mercedes, chevy and ford are going into cars not sports car related.
Toyota Supra is not their flagship. It is the TS050. Lets make that clear.
Where did i say it? Did i not provide you facts on engine applications?
You did jab toyota. Havent developed an engine since 2002. Nice one. I agree on it too.
Toyota doesnt need to create an engine on the same level of Porsche because they have it already. 1GR. 2GR. 3GR
So a lot of what I refer to is based upon the UK market.. (which would be very similar to Europe overall). So on that basis, Toyota stand no chance vs Porsche engine wise (in the UK and Europe anyways).
As for this discussion, I will just agree to disagree on your points. I personally feel that the B58 will be epic in the Supra, and its only time until someone figures it out for tuning.
