The same Texas tuner that is making a manual transmission for the 2020 Toyota Supra will also give it 527 horsepower.

Historically, the Toyota Supra has always been a popular choice for tuners. Once the new 2020 Supra arrived, tuners from around the world couldn’t wait to get their hands on it. Although some might have been surprised by the fact the car is more BMW under the hood than Toyota.

Nevertheless, tuners still saw potential and especially when they found out that Toyota might have been low-balling the Supra’s power figures. When Toyota revealed the Supra, they said that the 3.0-L turbocharged 6-cylinder engine made 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque at the crank. Car and Driver later found out that the car actually made 339 hp and 427 lb-ft of torque at the wheels.

So now that the Supra has started arriving at dealers, it’s time to see what this car can really do.

Last week, Texas tuner European Auto Group revealed that they would make the Supra their project car. Although primarily working to give the Supra a manual transmission (something that Toyota has so far refused to develop), EAG also said they’d collaborate to give the Supra a bit more power.

In an interview with Carbuzz, we were told to expect something around 420 horsepower. Now it seems like the Supra is getting a lot more than just 420 hp.

In partnership with DME Tuning, EAG gave the Supra a few upgrades including a new turbo from Pure Turbos, a new downpipe exhaust, and some extensive ECU remapping. From a baseline power of just 370 hp, this brought it up to 470 hp at the rear wheels.

Not satisfied with just 470 horses, the gang tweaked the ECU again for 495 hp, then 517 hp, and finally a whopping 527 hp--the most of any A90 Supra so far.

DME Tuning said “she’s got a lot more in her,” so we can expect to see this car produce even more. Motor1 reports that we might even see as much as 1,000 horsepower from the Supra if given the right parts.
