Since the year 2000, there has been an event going on called the TX2K. It was initially intended as a drag racing event for Toyota Supras, but quickly grew into a thrilling cornucopia of insanely fast cars, including many, many exotics. This year I have a friend that went to it, which I’m hoping to steal some pictures and video from in the future. Until then, here is a video of a Toyota Supra losing a door at about 185mph.
The same guy that posted that video also has some amazing Supra dyno pull videos where 800 horsepower seems to be the minimum. Absolutely. Sick.
Tony – “Don’t forget your camper this holiday weekend!”
Jeremy – “I realize that no car video this week will live up to the video of the Seagull stealing the gopro video camera, but I do have some great ones for you! Now, if 1 Supra launching is a great time, then three Supra launches are thrice as good. AmIRite?”

Monday = We had an awd turbo dune buggy
Tuesday = It was old-school vs. new-school with the 1929 Whippet SRT-4
Wednesday = There was no choice but to go with the hand built Toyota 2000GT
Thursday = An incredible ’69 Porsche GT3 build.
Friday = 1993 Mustang notchback with a 2JZ Toyota Supra engine.
I know that today’s build will be hated by some and loved by others, but regardless of personal opinions, it makes an impact. Today’s project is a fox body Mustang notchback with a 2JZ Toyota Supra engine swap built by a guy named Dan (2JZstang) on supraforums.com. It makes 650 horsepower at the wheels on E85 fuel and runs a 9.74 quarter mile at 144 mph. Sick fast. It took him a few years to build it on a budget, and it was almost sold off at one point, but in the end his dream prevailed. In it’s current state, is brutally awesome, sicknasty fast, and well deserving of high 5′s from every enthusiast in his area code.
Here are a few modifications worth noting:
- 6 Point Cage
- 2JZ engine with stock internals
- Billet Precision Turbo
- 4″ exhaust
- Built 8.8 rear
