It’s our first Toyota Supra feature here on StanceNation and we’re just so excited to share Brendan’s car with you. Brendan drives this thing all over California and Nevada, so if you’re on the Left Coast chances are you’ve probably seen this thing at your local event! This Supra has been with Brendan for 7 years, so you bet it has gone through several stages, including the popular “huge body kit and high offset wheels” stage. It then turned into something everyone liked, but there was just no individuality. Since then Brandan has stepped his game up and has taken things to a whole new level.

It’s hard to believe, but not too long ago this ITB Supra was involved in accident when Brendan lost control in the rain and hit a semi. He saw his control arms bent, smashed passenger rear quarter panel and multibent SSR SP1 Professor wheel! Thinking that it would never be the same, Kennedy at PlatinumVIP came into the picture and proved him wrong. Fast forward a few weeks, the car came out looking even better than before! The PlatinumVIP fellas did the whole metal widebody in the rear and they did it well! Stillen sideskirts & Shine Auto Ridox replica front bumper were also added and they look epic! The hood was made by Modellista Designs and sets the front off just right!

Now that the exterior was completed it was time to focus on the engine work. Brendan tells us that ever since he’s owned this car, he has always wondered what he could do with the engine. For a long time, he wanted a 600+hp Supra that could destroy practically anything on the street but there was something that he wanted even more more. He wanted to do something different. First seeing the idea back in 2004 by a shop called YSR (Japan), who specialized in non-forced induction work on the mighty 2jz, he started piecing together parts from Club 4age and a fabricator who could assemble an ITB intake manifold for him. Constantly, Brendan get’s asked why he chose the 4age throttle bodies for, the answer: “I wanted to keep it all Toyota”. Intrigued? Make sure you Read More below!

A little while after, Brendan took his parts to FSR Motor Creations in Monclair to piece everything together. A short month later, it was completely finished and although it’s not the fastest car on the road, it sounds gnarly. Oh, and throttle response is great Brendan tells us! Ever since then, Brendan has been total time attack track nut!

Let’s not forget the fitment specs, we are a fitment website after all. As you may have guessed the car is rolling on Work Equips. They’re 18×10 (+32) up front and 18×12 (+12) in the rear. Obviously, static and sitting on Tein Type Flex coilovers that get put to use every time Brendan is behind the wheel!
And there you have it. Perfect example of Form & Function. We could go on for days with all this writing, but we’ll just let the pictures do the talking for us. We gotta thank Brendan for everything though, so make sure next time you see him not to be afraid to come up and say what up to the guy. Personally, from the one time we’ve met Brendan we could tell you that he is a very kind and down to earth guy. We also want to thank Jeff Payuan for the dope shots!
This is how Brendan and his friends roll.
