EKanoo Pro Import GT86 2JZ US 1/4 Record

It seems EKanoo and the team have been at it again, this time taking their Pro Import GT86 over to the US to see what they can run.

Gary White ran it down the Michigan 1/4 mile at – 5.891 @ 388kph (241mph), breaking the US import record. Although not breaking their previous 5.77 @ 399kph (248mph) world record it’s a pretty impressive feat after a few runs.

Congratulations to the EKanoo Racing team! It will be interesting to see where this car and it’s development go from here.

New import 1/4 mile 2JZ world record – 2JZ GT86

EKanoo have done it again, posting a new import 1/4 mile 2JZ world record making it the world’s quickest and fastest import with the mighty 2JZ!

Best E.T – 5.77 @ 399kph (248mph)
Best trap speed – 5.82 @ 400kph (249mph)

Once again an amazing effort by the EKanoo team and another great drive job by Gary White.

World’s first 5 second import – 2JZ Supra

Did we ever doubt that a 2JZ powered vehicle would be the first in the 5 second 1/4 mile club? No we didn’t!

Although this may be old news to some, I held off posting EKanoo Racing Supra’s 5 second 1/4 mile run as these guys were breaking records left right and centre. An amazing effort by the EKanoo team and another great drive job by Gary White.

Best E.T – 5.97 @ 387kph (240mph)
Best trap speed – 6.00 @ 394kph (245mph)

World’s first 5 second import
World’s Fastest Supra
World’s Fastest 2JZ powered vehicle

In addition they also ran a 6.65@356KM/H (221MPH) in the Toyota 86 with the 2JZ combo, making it the world’s fastest 86 down the 1/4 mile.

Also I’m glad Khalid Mohammed’s recovered and walked away uninjured after this nasty crash in the Twin Turbo Lexus ISF.

 

10.5 Supra New Import World Record

It’s been a while since I put anything up from E.Kanoo Racing, but they are still at it with the supra. This time in the 10.5 outlaw supra – 6.04@374.44KM/H. So close to a 5 second supra, an amazing achievement and another great drive job by Gary White.

Cooma 1000m Sprint 2014

November 22nd of 2014 was the 3rd running of the Snowy Mountains 1000m event – http://snowymountains1000.com.au/.

This event is to see who is the fastest (and has the highest top speed) from a standing start over a 1000m (1km) airport runway in an regional Australian town (Cooma, NSW – close to 1000m altitude). No race fuels, no nitrous, and only on street radial tyres.

This year the event was even better for my car, no ignition or major boost issues, I had a tune on e85 with some adjusted cam tuning, new tyres and the new turbo setup. More details on my build can be found HERE.

2JZGarage – Supra 2JZGTE VVTi Project Update

Well it’s been a while since I’ve posted up any info on my own supra. Unfortunately the supra and this website sometimes become lowest on the list of life’s priorities, but that doesn’t mean I’m still working on the supra – A man must have his hobbies!

Current power;

  • Tuned on pump 98 fuel with a result of 445rwkw (597rwhp) @ 23.5 psi
  • Tuned on pump e85 with a result of 482rwkw (646rwhp) @ 23.5 psi

Since the last update these are the major changes;

  • Titan 272 VVTi Camshafts, GSC Valve stems, GSC beehive springs and titanium retainers – hopefully a write up coming soon on installing these
  • New LS2 LQ9 coil setup, which you can see HERE
  • Swapped out the old Garrett T51R SPL BB with a new Garrett GTX 4088R turbo with 1.06 rear. This was primarily to make it more streetable with the current engine setup staying stock for a while
  • Exhaust camshaft timing adjustments and slight vvti intake cam adjustment made by my tuner – this dramatically improved mid-range with the turbo by around 40hp – Exhaust cam tuning was 2 degrees of retard from memory
  • TRD Seibon hood removed and stock hood put back on to try and improve bonnet lift while racing at high speeds – although I still managed to brake another shroud at around 270kph (167mph)
  • Flex fuel sensor installed, although wiring yet to be setup and tuning to be complete
  • Tial BOV and other exhaust fabrication work for new turbo
  • Driveshaft shop single piece drive shaft, B series diff, Solid diff bushings to reduce axle tramp
  • Powersteering cooler setup in RHD duct
  • TRD sway bars and new links
  • New clamps for FMIC, fittings and ducting
  • Probably a few other things here and there that I’ve forgot about

Next in line will be cleaning up a few things I’m not 100% happy with at the moment such as improving intake temps. I will be installing twin thermo fans due to radiator setup and high speed racing causing shrouds to break – this will require some further intake fabrication work. Would like to create a custom airbox, install a fabricated oil catch can, changing to a new boost solenoid to allow for launch control/boost by gear and fix up some wiring.

New GTX4088R turbo got installed, managed to tap out a boost fitting and have a local shop do some fabrication work

The Titan 272 VVTi Camshafts, GSC Valve stems, GSC beehive springs and titanium retainers getting installed, I will be putting lots more pictures up and explaining this process in the near future

Toyota Supra Informational Video

Another Toyota Supra Informational video from the vaults, a Toyota Sales US video back in the launch year of 1993. Still to this day the Supra does not age, for those that watch the video please take note that the supra was probably closer to 4.9 seconds from 0-60mph for the US version. Thanks to Youtube user roliks.

If you know of any Toyota OEM or museum videos for the 2JZ either on Youtube or elsewhere 2JZGarage would love to see them, comment below or contact us directly.
