Factory Block! Almost 2000HP, 7 Second Supra | PDM Programming Secrets [TECH TALK]

Does a PDM only replace fuses and relays, or is there more to it?

Pushing almost 2000HP at 58 PSI of boost from a factory block, we were excited to learn more about Cody Phillips Racing JZA80 Toyota Supra at this years TX2K. This interview is packed full of knowledge bombs on a wide range of topics from IRS (independent rear suspension) pitfalls, PDM capabilities, cast block limitations along with why there is a price difference between a good and a great engine management system.

Cody takes the time to give us some great insight into his C02 boost control system that can get things to within ¼ of a PSI by targeting specific wastegate pressure, the 1.5 second target for hitting the required boost to launch with the aid of nitrous along with the new Turbo 400 setup that has replaced the troubled Powerglide.

The car ended up running a 7.27-second pass at 198.23mph at this year's Texas 2K event.
