Over 600,000 people have seen the Supra we build featured on YouTube Drive Networks (Link). Since the car was featured the owner chose to do some further updates to the car including the installation of a new built engine to replace the factory 3.0L 2JZ. We have just recently completed our 3.5L Stroker kit and found this balanced street car the perfect home to install such a powerplant. The 62mm turbocharger was a bit small for the 3.5L displacement but was left on the car for a back to back comparison over the 3.0L. The dyno graph below was done with the same boost levels as the car previously had and just minor tuning to compensate for the added displacement. The horsepower increases were great, however the real impressive figures are the torque increase (652hp / 596tq!). Both of these graphs were produced using 93 Octane fuel, the result is one of the most fun all around street builds we’ve done in a while. A slightly larger turbo and higher octane fuel could provide an even deadlier combination with the displacement increase and would prove to be a great option for those using their 2JZs on the road course.

Thanks to everyone who attended our fourth annual open house, the attendance far exceded our expectations (we had over 750 rsvp on Facebook but estimates show 1,500-2,000 attended throughout the day). Thanks to the gracious donations from our sponsors and attendees we were able to raise $6,250.00 for the Just In Queso Foundation!
A special thank you to our vendors Manley, FuelLab, Royal Purple, DEI, Hawk, Cometic, Brembo, Mr. Gasket, ACL, Eibach, Deatsch Werks,Fluidampr, Race Ramps, Precision Turbo, Gates and Ferrea for their attendance and donations. We look forward to holding this great event next year, and hope to raise even more money for great causes in 2014.
The open house is open to the public and features a car show with trophies and prizes for the top vehicles in several “best of” classes. This year we’ve changed the format to offer less classes with more of a focus on “best in show” based on clean modified vehicles. We’re also going to have a Ruckus class this year after the huge response from the Ruckus community in years past, so bring your 2 wheel vehicle and show them off as well.
The dyno format will change this year as well, instead of having a general dyno day, we’ve reached out to shops and racers in the area to have their big power and unique builds take a spin on our Dynojet 424. Expect to see some friendly competition and big power numbers as a result.
This year will also see the return of our Bikini contest with $400 going to the winner, and $150 to the runner up. Tijuana Flats will also return offering free food to attended, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to their Just-In-Queso charity. We’ll be increasing our prize give-aways as well and have reached out to our vendors and partners to donate many great items for the raffles and prizes.
Representatives from the top brands in the automotive aftermarket industry will be on site to display their products and answer questions on their product offerings. A raffle will be held to benefit the Just-In-Queso charity, prizes include gift certificates, apparel, parts, and memorabilia from these great vendors.
Vendors Participating: Manley, FuelLab, Royal Purple, DEI, Hawk, Cometic, Brembo, Mr. Gasket, ACL, Eibach, Deatsch Werks, Race Ramps, Precision Turbo, Gates and Ferrea.
We just wrapped up a busy weekend that saw us displaying at two different shows here in Orlando over the course of 4 days. The first was the 3 day Performance Racing Industry show at the Orlando Convention Center. This industry only show takes place yearly and offers a glimpse into the year ahead in racing. The PRI show is the little brother to the SEMA show that takes place in Las Vegas geared towards the hardcore race enthusiast who wants the extra performance without all the bling. The show features plenty of race cars on display from indy cars to monster trucks, all with one thing in common, the desire to go bigger, faster, and more powerful than the vehicle next to them in the staging lanes. The SEMA organization recently purchased both the PRI and competing IMIS shows and will merge them into one single event for 2013 that will take place in Indianapolis.
This was our second year exhibiting, with a focus on our Titan Motorsports Wholesale division geared towards providing other shops and distributors with access to our wholesale trade programs. We currently supply shops around the world with parts spanning over 185 brands to make sure their customer and shop cars have access to the same great parts we install here at our shop on a daily basis. On display was our legendary Supra race car, Twin Turbo Gallardo, and our latest acquisition not one but two Nissan GTRs which will be used to help develop a line of products and upgrades for the platform.
Titan Motorsports is proud to offer a direct replacement polycarbonate front and rear window kit for the MKIV Toyota Supra. Manufactured from 3/16” thick polycarbonate utilizing the same exact shape and contour of the OEM windshield and rear window allows the replacement to be glued in with all factory seals and trim being retained. A permanent screen printed black out border is applied prior to shipping providing a scratch and flake resistant coating to hide the sealant used for permanent installation. Replacing the factory glass with polycarbonate offers a significant vehicle weight savings typically shedding 10-12lbs for each piece, netting a total weight savings of over 20lbs with front and rear glass replaced.
These windows have a permanent anti-fog coating installed from the factory as well as a durable mar-resistant coating to provide chemical resistance and limit light abrasion. For vehicles traveling at high speeds for extended periods of time we do suggest installing bracing to prevent deflection.
Matt Farah from The Smoking Tire visited the shop a few weeks back while on their east coast tour and got the chance to drive one of our customers tastefully modded Supras. The entire feature is now available on TUNED, on YouTube’s Drive Network, check it out and share with your friends!
Titan Motorsports has developed this bolt in rollbar for the 93-98 Toyota Supra. Produced from 1.75“ 4130 Chomoly,this roll bar is 100% bolt in and requires no modification to the vehicle and is compatible with both targa and hardtop models. The base plates of this durable roll bar are produced using precise laser cut and formed panels, before being tig welded to the mandrel bent chromoly tubing. This bar allows the factory seatbelts to remain intact, while also facilitating the installation of multi-point race harnesses. It should be noted that on targa vehicles, the storage of the targa top in the trunk is compramised when this bar is installed. An integrated strut tower bar in the rear provides for additional chassis rigitiy and replaces the need for a seperate strut tower bar in the rear. All bars are powdercoated for a durable finish in your choice of 4 standard colors, with custom colors available for an additional $150.
Standard Colors : Matte Black, Gloss Black, Silver, and Gunmetal

Taking the old hot rod statement “There’s no Replacement for Displacement” to heart, we went to work and developed a new 3.5L stroker kit for the 2JZ. Increasing the factory displacement by .5L to increase low end torque and horse power and reduce turbo lag. Using one of our Titan Motorsports True Billet Crankshaft designed for our 3.5L, we increased the stroke by 10mm to 96mm, increasing the displacement to 3.5L. The Titan Motorsports 3.5L Billet Crankshaft also features a 1.88″ rod bearing which allows a wider range of bearing options as well as a larger variety of bearing materiel availability over factory sized Toyota bearings. The Billet Crankshaft is complimented by Custom Titan Motorsports / CP Pistons in 87mm bore, and Custom Titan Motorsports / Carrillo H-Bream connecting Rods with Upgraded Rod Bolts both built to our specifications. The recommended maximum RPM limit for this kit is 9,000 RPM when combined with proper camshaft selection and a lightweight valve train.
This past weekend our team loaded up our newly refreshed Copper super and headed to Texas for TX2K12. We’ve attended this meet since it’s inception and this year had the largest spectator attendance of any prior years. With a great showing of Supra’s, 2JZ swapped vehicles and a large amount of GTR’s in attendance this event has evolved from being a yearly Supra meet to a tuner and super car shootout. In addition the large number of Supra’s and GTR’s the Lamborghini Gallardo TT contingent was there with a strong presence. The dyno day crew did the unbelievable and managed to dyno over 80 cars on 2 dynos over the course of a day, with many breaking the 1,000hp barrier.
Drag Racing was held on Saturday and Sunday, with many records broken including the GTR drag racing record with an 8.63. The Titan Copper Supra seemed to be the talk of the drag days and with testing commencing it showed great promise. The whole community watched as Team Titan worked aggressively at making sure the car was able to make runs and continued to improve the new combination. When the first full 1/4 mile pass was made it yielded a 7.59 @ 186 with the doors literally flying off. While the crew worked to repair and service the car between rounds, a pair of replacement doors was borrowed from fellow competitor Ross Baird so the car would attempt another run. We want to thank Ross for his great sportsmanship and hope to return the favor in another fashion in the future! This year was a great event as the pictures below show, and we look forward to seeing even more people out at TX2K13 next year!
