They must have a beast of a budget. He has other videos of it on-track but the dyno runs convey the awesomeness. Anyone know what a Judd V10 + ECU costs? Must be nice.

From what I understand you lease the engine, and it has to go to Judd after x-number of operating hours for teardown/rebuild. They're popular with rich guys that buy vintage F1 cars and want to put a "less expensive" or "more reliable" engine in them for track days. 


Either way, Tureck's Supra is wicked. Right up there with his Ferrari-powered Toyota GT86.

Without wanting this to degrade into a YT influencer thread, I wonder how he affords this? It's not like he's got millions of subscribers. I only just found his videos so am totally out of the loop. Is he really successful at something else that funds this? Just curious.

He is a well sponsored professional driver in Formula Drift, and has been on multiple YouTube channels and social media platforms as well as having his own merchandise.       And I am pretty sure he came from money in the first place.    The YouTube vidyea posted has well over 2 million views, which while not earth-shattering compared to gamers and certain social influencers, is pretty decent from an automotive standpoint.

Ah okay. Forgot to mention their trailer and truck... F1-level equipment, hence my question on funding.
