280bhp offical figure (as 280 is the limit in Japan). The older ones were really 300+ but the newer vvt-i engine seems to produce less.

Still easy to tune to 400bhp without spending hardly any money.

That's a great looking car - Steve do you think your mate will take my alcohol battered liver and kidneys as part deposit?

If mine wasn't financed I'd sell it and have one of these, they're right nice!

Yoshis is upped to 320 i think.

Aido, i never even knew this car existed before joining the LOC.

Japanese Lowrider might still have his for sale...

Anyways still happy with IS, been lusting for it since I was 16 :lol:

320 (326) is the output of the UK spec Supra TT - uses the same engine but quite a few differences.

When I had mine dyno'd last year JAE, it was pushing 361 according to the charts, not sure on what has been done but - DAM, it's quick

The engine of the Aristo Twin Turbo (JZS161) is very strong. It is considered one of the 2 best Japanese engines. The other one is the Skyline engine.

Considering that you do not upgrade your transmission, I would think it would not be too difficult (and relatively lowcost) to hit 500hp.

The Japanese hp restriction of 280hp is just something that is written in official documents. I heard people dyno-ing completely stock JDM Skylines and Aristos and they all 300+ hp RWP :lol: .
