In order for the Toyobaru to be faster in the Nurburgring circuit it needs a supercharger.

See the Toyota TDR Aurion engine (3.5-litre V6, port fuel injection, high compression rate of 10.8:1):

Although the Eaton supercharger unit does not require an intercooler at low to medium boost levels, the 3.0-liter V6 TFSI unit from Audi works with a boost pressure of up to 0.8 bar which is higher than the modest 0.4bar (5.5 psi) used by the TRD Aurion's engine. Therefore, two water-to-air intercoolers connected to a separate coolant circuit are integrated into the supercharger housing in the Audi's engine:
