Toyota 86 with a Turbo 1FZ-FE inline-six

This Toyota 86 was built for Nikki Hepburn and Luke Coy to compete in many different drag racing classes. Powering this beast is a 4.5 L 1FZ-FE inline-six built by Pro T. If these engines don’t sound familar its because they are only found in Land Cruisers and the Lexus LX 450 SUV. The engine runs a Garrett GTX55 turbocharger and is controlled by a Link ECU. The chassis and suspension was built by ET Chassis and Race Cars. The project took 18 months to complete. The best time I could find was Nikki setting a 7.60 sec quarter-mile at 187 mph but the ultimate goal is to reach the 6-second club.
