SupraForums does a nice job of summing up all those acronyms.

www.suprastore.com has alot of info on BPU and BPU++ too, they also offer all the packages.. i think BPU+ is the addition of pulleys and BPU++ is the addition of cams .. somethin along those lines.. its on that sight.. check it out! = )

There is a guy down the street from me, Johnny, with a white Supra. He's pushing almost 700 to the wheels.

My house shakes everytime that thing rolls by. I go hunting with him every year. We're actually going tomm. morning around 3am He's a nice guy, actually, every Supra owner I've met knows a lot about cars, not just Supras. We get together every once in a while and go clubbing or to a bar. His wife also has a Supra but it's a stock non-turbo

I've driven that car twice and both times, I've shit my pants. Talk about power guys. I'll get there when the T-78 for the RX7 comes in

Yeah totally awesome cars for what i heard from my friend who owns a MK4.
Supra's are much much cheeper to mod then our cars and the power in these cars forget it...its just simply insane.
While we are trying to get to 400HP they are reacing for 700-800.
Its just not fare . BMW SUPRECHARGERS AND TURBOS'S NEED TO BE CHEEPER .
Sorry i got carried away.

yeah, but with those 700-800 hp im not sure if they can use all that in twisties. they have the advantage in a straight line, but we got the advantage in the turns.

yeah and it will be cheeper for them to get a racing suspension top of the line. Trust me we are scrwed we need bigger blowers and cheeper products to compete. Everyother car thats coming out these days is like 225HP. Granted our cars are still fast and can kill a lot of cars out there but still. I want to be able to see an e30, e36 or e46 just trash Vipers like 30% of moded supras do day in and day out.

"I have a Dream that one day" Ok i will stop hehe

http://www.mkiv.com/techarticles/index.html#bpu

that will also help you understand the modifications needed to be considered:

-BPU
-BPU+
-BPU++
-APU



mkiv.com is the best site, IMO, to learn about MKIV SUPRAS!

I've actually read that the supra can handle just as good as a e36 m3 stock vs stock. It just feels a little different. They are truely amazing cars. Its a mystery why toyota stopped producing them. But rumor has it that toyota will bring back the supra. From the drawings I saw, its kinda of a luxory type thing. As for bmw parts, I wonder why its so expensive. I have a friend who drives a wrx and bought his wife a e36 m3 and he said that the quality in parts between the two are no different. Now my friend doesnt buy the cheap sh*t for his wrx. But I personally wouldnt know. I mean if I had a BMW, I would gladly fork over all the money

the supra is a great track car. if you've ever heard of the japanese GT racing league in japan, the supra is one of the top competitors among NSX's, skylines, diablos, mclarens, etc.

and please, never ever compare the cheap ass WRX to a BMW. thanks.
