Anyone else here own one? or is everyone's milk here pretty new.
I almost got one.
And I think that while alot of people have pretty new milk, some of us have older milk.
Just got one with a bhg for $50, lol. I'm putting the 5-lug shit on my '85 cressida, along with the 7m to replace my 200k mile 5m.
stock cars with fart cans make me lol.
I had one..i loved it.
Say the guy with a pos $50 car & hoping to upgrade it to a non turbo supra engine.
You can judge whether a car is stock or not just by looking at it from the outside?
7m is just temporary till the 1jz gets thrown in.
I figured it wasn't stock, since it is a supra, and most supra owners don't know how to mod suspension properly. Stock suspension with stock wheels/tires and just a visible fart can make it look pretty stock with just a fart can, amirite?
yea we all have dreams & talk all day about what we plan on doing. You see, I bought that supra for $500.
Spent $5k in parts alone.
Rebuilt the engine & head
sand down the car + new paint job
all new seals & gasket
all t-bolt clamps
all new hoses
60-1 clipped turbo
3" turbo-back exhaust
Running @ 18psi.
What have you done to your supra other than spending $50 and wishing to put a NA engine in it?
nice car kroze. very slick.
not doing shit to the supra, except downgrading it, lol.
The cressy is mechanically stock, with factory lsd, and w154 5sp with a kevlar coated clutch. Suspension is cut springs in the front (from previous owner) with sw20 konis, and camero kyb's with mk2 supra sport springs for the rear, all of which will be redone with custom konis and ground controls. Corbeau seat, 350mm steering wheel, welded in 4pt roll bar, and gutted. A couple different sets of wheels: 14" celica supras with 205/55/14 Toyo RA-1's and 15x8 +2 Advan Oni's with 205/50/15 Yoko ES100's. That'll change when it's 5-lug, though. I'm thinking some 16x9 -10ish offset steelies for now with some 225/45/16 Hankook R-S2's.
You should at least put some different wheels on your supra along with some coils to help that pig handle. It just looks silly in 4x4 mode. No matter how much money you've thrown at the engine.
tinypic.com learn it.
bah works for me
i have two friends that have mk3s, love em.
o and that fart can exhaust u love to hate, actually brings the car from a high 15s car to a mid 14s with exhaust+intake, but you know its rice, right?
There are more than fart can mufflers out there is all I'm saying. If you're going for a sleeper look, have a custom 3" exhaust made with stainless and a flowmaster or something, with dual 2" tips. It doesn't have to look flashy just to perform. But do whatever the fuck you want to your cars.
actually, the area of 2x 2" tips wouldn't be enough, unless they were only running a 2.828" exhaust
Sorry, that single turbo supra thread has me in math mode
I just threw out a number, lol. If I were actually building something I'd spend the time to think it out. Just trying to make a point.
Fuck. I feel like deus. I should get these cocks out of my ass.
you really should
