But a well-rounded car means massages everywhere-paying attention to details that often have little to do with fun things like horsepower and torque. Holding back in terms of stopping and handling prowess, Kirby did not do. Only one word can describe this SC300's brakes: Endless; and that's the company, not the adjective. Six-piston calipers and pads from the Japanese braking company clamp down to small wheel-sized 13-inch rotors up front but the back's more of an OEM/Endless affair, where twin-turbo Supra calipers meet with a set of Endless pads and rotors, also of twin-turbo Supra heritage. Endless brake lines push the Motul fluid through the system, giving Kirby that firm pedal feel to go with his new overkill-stopping wherewithal. Of course, we can't forget about the suspension, which remains simple, yet effective. Simple in that all that was added were Tein HA coilovers along with a Daizen camber correction kit and Carbing front strut tower brace-effective in that, really, that's just what the SC300 was asking for. But everyone knows the buck stops with wheels and tires when it comes to stopping and turning. Volk Racing GT-V draped in Toyo T1s handle the buck appropriately.

Rambling on in terms of Kirby's SC300 and all that's entailed in making it go, stop and turn is easy but the truth is Kirby wanted his introductory SC to appeal to the eyes in the very way it gets the blood pumping when strapped in the driver's seat. We believe his very words were: "to build a show car with both the looks and speed to kill." Fair enough. Kreative Auto Interior got to work with needle and thread, ditching the original tan leather interior and instead bolting and fitting Bride Ergo II seats and fabric into place along with matching accoutrements for the rear, long before horsepower was addressed. The Authentic Origin body kit, Bomex mirrors and a color change carried out by the people at AutoWerks Paint and Body in '06 SC430 fashion with a hint of gold pearl followed suit. One could very well see to leaving things alone at this point, but not Kirby. Enough audio gear was outfitted to his SC to warrant an entirely different discussion and we haven't even mentioned all the extra bits like the Veilside steering wheel and shift knob, Takata harnesses, Razo pedals ... one could go on.

The details of Kirby's build and all he's accomplished with the once-naturally aspirated 2JZ of all engines is enough to make even non-turbo 2JZ naysayers figuratively choke on a couple of turbos. Almost. That was before we found out Kirby already has plans in the works to swap his current powertrain for something of the 2JZ-GTE variety. Perhaps protocol does have an upside.
