Yep... First guy to get 1000 HP out of a Supra 2JZ-GTE on stock internals said the key is PERFECT tuning.

I spent $700 at the dyno just getting the WOT maps tuned on my MR2, and then I self tuned the mid-range maps. She put down 290 hp at the rear wheels and 290 lb-ft of torque, and I heard a few weeks ago from the guy I sold it to it's still going strong.
