I'm assuming that its a UK based mag - 239bhp? Seems low, I was under the impression that it was 251 - could be the Jspec versions only had that. Also the 92-94 of the ST185? And 1990 the ST165? Now I know the 5th Gen was 90-93 here in the states, the UK really get cars that late?

Yeah 239 or so for the UK spec gt4's. JDM are a bit higher. The mentioning of the years are just errors written by some editor that didn't have the correct info at the time. Years were the same in UK and USA. :)

Interesting what they say there. I subscribe to Evo, and usually they're bang on....

239 is what the spec says. 250 is more normal. Pretty sure they quoted the figure low so as not to hurt Supra sales.

They also reckon the one they tested (new) cracked 60 in 5.2 seconds. Hmmmm. Methinks that was a press special.....

Turbos go at 80K? Not really.
Tyre wear isn't terrible. I've had 15-18K out of mine, and I drive pretty hard.
And they totally neglected to mention the bit which *does* fail and costs. Superstruts...
