Grannas Racing RHD MKIV Supra single turbo kit fitment

A lot of customers have asked "Will your turbo kit fit a RHD supra?" Well, I wanted to verify this for 100% certainty before I said yes, so here are the results.

This is showing fitment of our single 60mm gate setup with a Tial/Xona turbocharger, but the most important part on the RHD is clearing the steering rack's intermediate shaft. And as you can see, it clears without issue.

This will hold true for any of the setups with the single gate setup. So T4 open or T4 twin-scroll / divided, PTE vband inlet (non-promod) or XONA/TIAL vband inlet. You can see these options on the Grannas Racing Turbo Kits page.

I will be testing the twin 44mm gate setup next, but for now the single 60mm gate kits will fit like a glove! 

You can also see our RHD Supra clutch master cylinder kit fitting nicely as well.

Tilton ST246-HD will drive like a daily but can hold 1500 horsepower

In this video one of my customers Mo's shows his 1000+WHP S14 240sx and just how amazing it drives with the GR700A T56 Magnum kit along with the Tilton ST246-HD clutch. This is the Heavy Duty version of the Tilton ST246 clutch, but as you will see in this video it drives amazing.

Tilton ST246-HD clutch

The ST246-HD clutch is rated for 1250 ft lbs of torque, so on a 2JZ application this clutch can pretty much hold 1500WHP.

The standard duty ST246 clutch is rated for about 950 ft lbs, so it can hold about 1000WHP on a 2JZ setup. I recommend this clutch for pretty much any car making between 600whp and 1000whp.

The GR700A kit uses Grannas Racing's new cast aluminum bell housing which makes for an easy installation, quieter performance, and easier serviceability. This kit combined with the Tilton ST246 clutch provides the ultimate combination in comfortability and drive-ability in a manual transmission application. I offer the GR700A kit for almost all the common 2JZ/1JZ swap applications and even offer a universal kit for cars that are not as common.

All of Grannas Racing kits are a bolt in setup, and include all the hardware, to make a seamless, easy install without any need to run to the hardware store for hardware or any need to make another order for missing parts.

Rather than purchasing off of my website, I highly recommend letting me work up a quote specifically for your car. This is an easy process using my quote form grannasracing.com/quote

Complete Grannas Racing Supra 8.8 rear kit install video

In this video Ryan Scott from Pure Function installs one of our complete 8.8" Ford rear kits. In the video Ryan covers every aspect of the install, from the removal of the OEM toyota differential, to swapping the ABS tone rings onto the new axles, to setting up the pinion angle.

The kit Ryan chose was the MKIV Supra kit, with DrivesshaftShop Level5 axles, and aluminum driveshaft. He chose the thunderbird rear differential for his 1100HP build and we sourced the core and built and assembled him a complete setup ready to bolt into the car. No need for trying to find a pumpkin, we got it covered! He only had to add the oil, and bolt the differential into the car.

I recommend the 8.8 kits for those looking for a strong, quiet, street car differential. You can find our 8.8" kits on the website under the differentials section. We make a few different 8.8 kits but the most popular kits I offer:

MKIV Supra 8.8 rear kit

IS300 Ford 8.8 rear end kit

Subaru BRZ / Scion FRS / Toyota 86 8.8" rear end kit

If you are interested in pricing on a full kit, please fill out this form and I will work it up based on your car grannasracing.com/rearquote

Take some time to watch this comprehensive guide on the install. The only thing not covered here is the optional PRO LEVEL wheel hub install, which basically requires pressing off the OEM wheel hubs and installing the billet DSS Pro wheel hubs which are good for 1500HP Supras.

GR700A complete install on our new Anthracite Supra Project

Our new ANTHRACITE supra project

Grannas GR700A T56 Magnum transmission install video

In this video i will introduce you to the new shop car. A super RARE anthracite MKIV Supra, only 1 of 374 sold in the USA. The downside is this car needs a lot of work.... Everywhere. It has rust issues, transmission issues, engine bay issues, cheap parts issues. So it will make for a great project / shop car. The goal is to make this a BADASS street car setup.

The first step in the process is to get it driving. The R154 it came with was broken badly, no first gear whatsoever. In this video I will cover a complete end-to-end install of the new GR700A kit. This kit includes our new aluminum bellhousing, which makes the install process so much easier, as well as quiets down the driveline and also allows easy future servicing.

This is the most comprehensive install video I have ever done, I cover clutch install, bell install, driveshaft install, clutch pedal adjustment, clutch master cylinder, wiring and setup of the speedometer using the bluetooth app, transmission fluid recommendations, all the way down to my leather shift knob and boot cone install.

Subscribe for updates as we build this car. It is going to be getting a GR 8.8" rear end kit, a built stroker motor, and new ground up turbo setup, intake manifold, basically everything end to end! It will also be getting the body/rust issues fixed along with a new paint job. And no, we are not changing the factory color!

NEW 2JZ to T56 Cast Aluminum Bellhousing

NOW AVAILABLE
grannasracing.com/products/precision-machined-cast-aluminum-jz-to-t56-bellhousing

 

NEW GRANNAS CAST ALUMINUM BELLHOUSING!!! VIDEO BELOW

Out of a need for an easier to install, quieter setup for street cars, a cast aluminum bell that is machined to spec has always been something I wanted to take on... but I did not have the sales volume where I felt comfortable doing this until now.

In this video I cover the advantages to my new street bell housing setup which will now be standard in all GR700 Kits. This cast aluminum adapter bellhousing Works with any 2JZ and 1JZ engines and any LS based T56 or any Tremec T56 Magnum including Magnum-F and Magnum XL.

This bellhousing should reduce noise, require less work, and make for a much easier install. No index plate, no offset dowels, no extra wait time to order the proper offset dowels, and no extra downtime.

I AM DOING A GROUP BUY FOR KITS WITH THIS NEW BELL. The deal is going to be hard to beat. In addition to the new Aluminum bell kit, you will get a FREE SINGLE DISC CLUTCH or $500 OFF ANY OTHER HEAVIER DUTY CLUTCH.

VISIT THE GROUP BUY PAGE FOR DETAILS grannasracing.com/groupbuy

This is something I have been keeping under wraps for about 8 months, and it's finally coming to life. Once machine work is completed, these will be standard in all GR700 kits! I will continue to stock Quicktime bells and they will always still be on the shelf for the guys who want to race and have a SFI certified bell.

2500HP Air-to-Air Supra Intercooler Setup - TX2K prep 2021

Well, It's February 28th, only one day away from March, with TX2K approaching very fast... and we are crunching to get Orange Man Bad ready for Texas.

Some updates include a new intercooler setup, and dual parachutes. We were seeing massive pressure drop across the old dual-core setup, which was already a massive 7" thick (24x12x7" total) with two 3.5" Vibrant cores welded together. The new core is two 4.5" thick CSF cores which is now 9" thick (24x12x9" total). The old core was rated at 2000HP and this new setup should be good for 2500HP+

This is definitely the largest intercooler I have ever seen. We have nicknamed the intercooler "Girth Brooks"

Rob also got the dual chutes mounted up so we are safer with the 200MPH+ trap speeds! Now we should be able to run all the boost!

Hope to see you all in Texas!

VIDEO GOES LIVE 7PM EST

Looking for a Tremec T56 Magnum, Magnum-F, or Magnum XL for your street or strip car? We keep them in stock! Along with clutches and everything else for your T56 swap project!

A WORST NIGHTMARE - Money shifting a 6 second H-pattern car!

At the Hail Mary Derby 2020, I ran a 6.84 resetting the H-Pattern record, but I also had a few passes that didn't go so well. The first 3-4 passes all where wheelie shows, too much power too late with not enough wheelspeed. After we figured that out we got the new record pass, but I wanted to try and get a better short track pass as the 6.84 pass was on a "soft" 1.20 sixty foot. Well, I got what I wanted with a 1.10 sixty foot wanted but ended up money shifting the car. The dreaded one-two-one shift. Ugh.

Money Shift supra h-pattern one two one stick car drag racing

So, in this video I will try to explain the difference between an H-Pattern "stick shift" car like mine versus a Liberty, Lenco, or other clutchless style "stick shift" transmission. 

For those that follow stick shift racing, we know the difference between clutchless cars and true h-pattern stick shift cars like Grubb Worm, Red Demon, and Minion. I wrote this up and made this video and blog article help clear up some of the differences.

The easiest way to describe the difference is an H-Pattern transmission is what you would find in any OEM manufactured "manual" car. You move the shifter back and forth and left to right in an H-Pattern to select the gears. You select the gears, you "interrupt power" (aka, use the clutch to remove the load) to get from one gear to the next.

A "clutchless" transmission like a Liberty, Lenco or some of the other sequential options allow you to FULL POWER shift from one gear to the next. There is no-pattern in the shifts other than back and forth. Another advantage is these cars never use the clutch other than the initial launch. On large displacement motor cars the full power upshifts would not make as big of a difference.

H-Pattern drag racing has disadvantages, you basically need to "lift" or interrupt power, OR depending on your transmission setup you may have to use the clutch. For example, if you are a REAL street car using a synchronized transmission, you have to clutch the car to keep the synchros alive. With an h-pattern shifter you can also make BIG MISTAKES. Shifting into the wrong gear, the dreaded "money shift" or 1-2-1 shift can happen to even the most experienced drivers. They call it "money shift", because it is going to cost you a lot of money. You can blow a motor, destroy a clutch or transmission, wreck the valvetrain, and i've seen it even send cars into the wall. It is not a good look!

The GR1000F Transmission kit in my car has some extra tricks to help it shift faster and live longer, but it is still a OEM T56 case, and the factory Tremec Magnum helical gearset (with Liberty faceplated 1st-4th gears)... It is in essence what you would find in a 2010 Camaro, with some trickery to make it stronger (cryo/rem) and shift quicker (faceplating). I can shift without the clutch, so I have taken my car one step closer towards "clutchless" but I still have to interrupt power to allow for a gear change.

I use a strain gauge which allows me to cut the power electronically and kill ignition on a shift. This is basically a load cell which can detect deflection in a shifter handle. So basically it can detect when I pull or push on the shifter. When I move the shifter, it does a split-second cut of power, allowing me to jam into the next gear. This is the same principal as "stabbing the clutch" which is just another way to interrupt power to allow the car to get into the next gear.

These little things improve shifting time, and on a small displacement motor with a big turbo any gains there can be substantial. All of these little tricks help make this car the world record holder with a best of 6.84 @ 213mph with "soft" 1.20 sixty foot. At the same event we cut a 1.1 sixty foot, so they say every tenth in the sixty foot equates to two tenths in the quarter, so this car has potential to run 6.60's

In the future, I do plan on going to a Liberty clutchless 5-speed. On a small 3.2L motor, BIG turbo car like mine this full power shifts would keep the car at full power the whole way down the track and also help keep RPM up and the clutch locked up on shifts. I would love to see the ET gains from one of these on my car and that is how "Orange Man Bad" will eventually evolve.

Hope you enjoy the video below! I am taking a much needed four month break from racing! See you all in Texas at TX2K21
