We do. We've tuned many single turbo supras with a range of standalones such as: Haltech Platinum, AEM V2/V1, and ViPEC to name a few. And we are a standalone dealer so they can all be purchased through us. Give us a call: 604-931-8885

Define "blew up." The two don't necessarily have anything in common.

this thread isnt about Racing Greed doing something wrong. It's about having someone else tune a Supra.

I doubt RG blew any DSM up.

They Tuned mine and Many many of my friends.

I NEVER had an issue after.

Chances are your buddy fucked up, not RG.

I would also suggest marko at forcefed. His supra is a beast.

Yes, thats the car, but it has run 8's... and i heard it idling last week and it seemed fine to me lol.

+1 on RG being a awesome shop to take a supra too. I would recommend them to anyone.

Also Evolution in Maple Ridge knows their shit as well and now have a FWD/RWD pod dyno in shop for tuning purposes. They are also experienced tuning many different platforms and engine management systems.

highly doubt rg blew up that talon. My "big" single turbo 240sx goes 10.9 @ 130 mph after I drive her to the track from work on pump gas .

Fully built and tuned from racing greed..

how is the AEM working out for you? it's a pain in the ass to find a good standalone... also, what made you choose the HKS turbo?

the aem v2 is awesome. ive had it tuned by rg and tweaked a bit more by MVP's email tuner chris hamilton of RSI motorsports.
i really love how it starts up like a bone stock supra, minus the 2 second fuelpump priming

and i chose this t51r kai because i wanted 500rwhp on pump, and i was going to pickup a billet 6765 but then i saw this turbo for sale on supraforums and i was like...... aw man that sound...
then i was like meh this thing will overshoot 500 by a fair amount but it will damn sure garauntee that i hit 500 on pump

this was after i picked up an RPS header so i was hunting for a T4 turbo, so then my thought became "damn what would this actually SOUND like... two legendary noisemakers combined"

rest is history

hks also makes some sick products so i knew it would run solid. and god damn it sounds sooo sick driving around in my supra now.

i dunno who you are, if youve seen my car in person yet but this is what it sounds like in and out


spools very satisfactory.
i could only be happier if my bottom end was built

that sounds pretty sick... are you usually out on the island or are you ever in vancouver? i'd love to look at your car sometime, I'm aiming for around 500-600hp on pump myself... i am now considering the gt28 hybrids from s4s... they are still ironing out the kinks though
