Jordan Wade purchased his 2013 Toyota GT86 from a dealer in 2014. He installed a supercharger and the 2.0 L 4U-GSE flat-four made a healthy 280 horsepower. Unfortunately the motor blew on the dyno after the addition of a HKS stroker kit. He decided to use the opportunity to rebuild the weekend track warrior with a new heart.
Jordan started by replacing the factory motor with a supercharged 4.0 L 1UZ-FE V8. He dropped the car off at Carson Performance to have the V8 sorted and working properly on a MoTeC M150 ECU.
A methanol injection system and interchiller helps significantly reduce the inlet air temperature. Jordan estimates the motor is making 450+ horsepower on 1.0 bar (14.5 psi) of boost from the M122 supercharger. A custom titanium exhaust showcases the DOHC V8’s sound.
Rogue Motorsport is building Jordan a new 1UZ V8 featuring stock internals, ported/polished heads, and ARP studs. It will still feature the Eaton M122 supercharger sourced from a Mustang GT500.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a BMW six-speed manual transmission, custom driveshaft, and KAAZ 1.5 way limited-slip differential with 3.60 gears.
The coupe rides on upgraded adjustable coilovers with 5×114.3 hubs and stops thanks to AP Racing six-piston calipers with 362 mm rotors. The interior still retains all the creature comforts like cruise control, HVAC, push-button start, and factory gauges.

Hi your supercharged gt86 looks like a great project, I’ve got a 1uzfe to which I’m going to fit a m122 blower, I have all the parts , it’s going into my 29 model a hot rod, but I need some advice on pulley sizes, I’m hoping to run about 7 psi of boost (I don’t want to blow the thing up) can you help , any advice would be great.
Cheers, Chris yea.
7psi is nothing to these motors depending on the generation. Best ones to start with have the thicker rods, these can be identified by square, billet fuel rails. Iv been running 14psi with just a aic on a factory ecu for 6 years. (M112) if you need info message me on IG @spoolmk3
Jordan would have been blown away to see this completed, rip Jord
