MKV A90 Toyota Supra First Impressions

Say hello to the newest addition to our PRL Motorsports family! Our A90 MKV Toyota Supra is finally here after being jerked around by two different local dealerships over the past few weeks. We want to give thanks to Spitzer Toyota of Monroeville for the great price on this Absolute Zero White 2020 GR Supra 3.0 Premium and for always being a pleasure to deal with.

First Impressions:

This car is extremely quick and feels solid right out of the box. The A90 Supra seems to be built/engineered rather well with quality components. We feel that the exhaust tone sounds extremely nice from the factory, offering an aggressive grumble and crackle, especially in sport mode, without being too unbearable. We had no problems breaking the tires loose upon aggressive takeoff, which left us with a smile on our faces.

At a Glance:

The tight engine bay and arguably overly-engineered Supra looks to leave performance part manufacturers like ourselves with a bit of a struggle to design and fit upgrades. But hey, we like a challenge.

The factory exhaust tubing measures 80mm to dual 70mm, which allows for quite a bit of exhaust flow. We don’t expect to see much, if any, gains to be had from an aftermarket catback exhaust system. However, we do anticipate gains from a downpipe upgrade by the removal of the factory catalytic converter and replacing it with a high flow unit and/or Race version without.

The factory intake system utilizes a rather large air box, large dry panel filter and mufflers to suppress sound (lame ). Though we expect this to breathe rather well, this large space should allow us adequate room for a proper, higher of airflow volume upgrade.

As with most any factory forced induction vehicle with, especially with a water-to-air heat-exchanger in a tight engine bay, we suspect that this car can benefit from some sort of upgrade.

We are currently strapping down our test mule to the DynoJet as we speak to establish a baseline power output number, test our theories and see what we can find. Stay tuned for data, more input and updates on our with our product line!
