The 2020 Toyota Supra has only been on the market for a little more than a week and the aftermarket is already formulating ways to extract more power from the BMW-built inline turbocharged 6 cylinder.
Legendary tuner and builder Steph Papadakis is leading the charge with his latest project. Steph got his hands on a brand new 2020 Toyota Supra all just so he could completely dismantle the front end, pull out the engine, and completely take it apart. Why? Because, he wants to know as much about the new Supra’s B58 engine as possible since he plans to rebuild it into a 1,000hp beast.
I’d be willing to bet that this is all part of the early stages of a new 2020 Supra drift car for Fredric Aasbo next season. Though, Steph makes no such suggestion.
If you want to literally see what the new Supra’s engine is made of, check out the video below to watch Steph completely dismantle it bolt-by-bolt. Along the way a few interesting tidbits are discovered; Such as the timing chain being located in the rear of the engine block rather than the front. We also get a close look at the fact that the engine has an internal exhaust manifold which means the turbocharger is essentially bolted directly to the block which only has two exhaust outlets.
There is more but I won’t spoil it for you. Instead, check out the video below and watch Steph work.
