Racer Tears Down 2020 Toyota Supra Engine, Goes For 1,000 HP Build

Ladies and gentlemen drivers, we are basically here to see how somebody bought a 2020 Toyota Supra, took the car to the garage and... removed the engine and transmission only to completely disassemble the motor.

Sure, the said path might seem a bit brutal at first, but here's why it all makes sense. For one thing, the whole aim of the shenanigan is to start a build, one that aims to take the BMW B58 unit of the Mk V Supra to no less than 1,000 horsepower.

Now, the B58 has been on the market since 2015, coming in different versions that power multiple BMW models, so aftermarket developers have had time to play with the single-turbo (twin scroll) 3.0-liter straight-six.

However, the release of the new Supra is likely to push this unit to new levels, since not everybody is willing to put the engine aside and throw a 2JZ into the Japanese sportscar.

The piece of footage showcasing the tear down of the engine makes for a brilliant watch and it's all thanks to the balanced narative, which could teach many aficioandos a thing or two about modern engines altogether.

Then again, this shouldn't come as a surprise, since the one doing the manual labor is Stephan Papadakis, a racing team owner who has made his mark on both the drag racing and drifting US championships.

It's worth noting that Papadakis is best known for the victories he achieved using small engines rathern than V8s. For instance, the Toyota Corolla hatchback drift car you see in the background (think: the intro of the video) packs a turbo-four Toyota 2AR-FE mill that mixes 30 psi of boost and a shot of nitrous to peak at 1,000 hp.

Behind the wheel of the compact, racing driver Fredric Aasbo grabbed second spot in last year's Formula D championship. And this is where things get even more interesting - the said pro drifter recently received a rendering portraying the 2020 Supra as a hot rod, with this being a tribute to his actual Mk IV Supra hot rod.

So the black 2020 Supra whose engine is a collection of parts for now might evolve into the extreme contraption featured in the said render.
