1988 Toyota Supra 7.9 16.0
1989 Toyota Supra Turbo 6.6 15.2

those are the 0 to 60 and 1/4 miles for the 88 non turbo and 89 turbo. I hope this helps. IMO, i think that it would be about even, not sure tho. He might take you if its a stick. the other guys on the board should be able to help you more on this.

I truely believe you can take him, just remember to torque brake. I found that torque braking at 2k is good enough, if higher i get a little wheel spin and I have Pirelli 225/40/18 tires. Smok'em for all us V6ers!!! Oh and try to take out as much weight as possible ie: the rear seats just poop right out, the spare, the jack, tools, subs and amp if you gots it, and dont eat for awhile, hehe that might help, but i think you can take him as long as he doesnt have any secrets under the hood.

PS: dont mess with the turbos though!

Non Turbo

Race him, if it is a stock Supra, I bet my left toe that you will beat him. That car is alot slower then yours. If it is a turbo, which you said it wasn't then don't bother.

that 0-60 and 1/4 mile time are pretty close to ours, but one thing u have to remember is that car is now 13 years old. I highly doubt its running in top shape
