    Jesus Christ that was weird; the mannerisms and voice are so much like Paul.

    Insta-clicked this one pretty fast, but sadly very little conversation about the car, would have been keen to get Jay's thoughts.

    Also I hear a lot of Americans claiming the USDM Supra with its steel turbos was much more powerful, I've always thought both JDM and UK/USDM left the factory with around 325? Would somebody clue me up?

    I always thought the uks abd usdms had steel turbos making them faster than the jspec that had ceramics?

    Sadly No.. JDM typically was 280.... exports were 320.- You can thank the Japanese auto industry and their gentleman's agreement for that.

    The flip side is that the US has the heaviest version, thanx to its fully loaded, Aerotop, 6sp, TT option(US only) and its extra chassis bracing to cope.

    This archaic yet amazing site has it all.

    Also, I like Jay, but sadly, you just cant take much away from his opinion, nor most American's in their views on cars.
    Its not their fault, its just that they live in their own little "USA IS the world" patriot-bubble, often with such little exposure and education about the car-world beyond their borders.
    its the reason the USA usually gets its own version of everything(Like the supra), because the average US buyer "thinks and wants differently" to the rest of the world.

    My understanding is that the quoted figure was 280 under the gentlemen's agreement but real world figures are more, JDMs are about the same stock power as Export cars

    280 on paper only - not in practice.

    Finally! About time he had one on. Looking forward to seeing what he thinks. Hope it’s a tastefully done bpu, but prob not. Cheers for the heads up. Just talked me out of changing over disks and pads!


    Edit: had no idea it was a paul walker feature. I’ve seen all of these shows and this is the first time that the car isn’t the real subject matter, so not to put down what the interview contained, as some have said, it didn’t get the same attention as a car would normally get, and that’ll be it ticked off now as being on the show.

    Nice to see a Supra on the show finally, although more actual talking about the Supra and less about Paul Walker’s extended family would have been preferred. Think they could also have chosen a better example. I couldn't stop looking at the front bumper not lining properly! Also J-spec brakes
