IMHO chrome fender flares look like crap on all cars, but thats my opinion, and i'm entitled to it. if you like it, more power to you, its your car, you dont need my approval, right? just like a fellow supra owner that has a ricer wing, looks like shit IMHO, but he likes it, so mheah.

good effort, needs a bit of work though. GTA3 Vice City comes out for PC on May 14, ive got a copy reserved.... unless I can find it online of course

car is still in peices... havent touched it since ryan was over haha. im going to pick up some screwbolts for the valvecovers today or tomorrow (6x30mm hex head), and return the grommets that i bought for $3 EACH! holy crap... if any of the grommets start leaking, then ill replace them one at a time...

remmber you don't need heck head for the vavle covers and stuff you need thou rubber shim thou cause if you turq down you cover to much you kill the gasket

i don't whould what this be thing about hex heads are when you only turq em downto 18 to 20 foot pounds

and every oil change should cheak cover and re turq the cover 's

I ordered the Titan 1.4mm Metal headgasket today from Suprasport.com. we'll see how long it takes to get here. Fuck I can't beleive how expensive everything is here. Lordco and Baker supply want $300 for the Fel-Pro headgasket or $500 for the rebuild kit. Toyota wants $96 for the OEM headgasket or $380 for the top-end rebuild kit.

Do you think I could get away with just the MHG and new cam cover gaskets? Anyone feel like doing a trip to Nanaimo for some BHG fun?

i hope your machining the block for that MHG...

as for the hex head bolts, picked them up from Lordco, $1.44. The advantage is they wont back out like the stock screws do, and they wont strip the phillips head... plus they look trick

any wya really don't matter just turq ed down just tab abiotu eh same as you spark plud just tell there nice and snug and crap

you have bhg that what happens when you have bad pump no matter what you drive and age thing too


but you will have to get the top end rebuild kit comes with head gaset and all

so i say return the meatle gasket waste of money really when it the top end rebuild kits come with it and stuff

just but new bolt turq em down to 72 foots pounds and you chousl use the stock ones since the stince streath of them are still there caus eof lack of turq toyota used int he frist place but if they were turqed to 72 don't use em they will be liek spounges and stuff


btu return the gasket it not needed waste of money in your case


plsu you block should still have a good finsh on it and stuff the head will ahve to be deack and the block just light lap


if you want me to help i sorry i can't cause of work but i am all wasy online if you have any qestion

and since the head off cheak for leaking vavle stems and stuff you knowe cheak all the clearaces and stuff

i fucking hate my car... got the valvecovers back on... cracks 3 fucking hoses... the only one i priced out was fucking $58... anyone know of other options for hoses? i need:

-one short (2") on from the valve cover to the PCV metal pipe
-the elbow at the end of the PVC pipe that attaches to the accordian hose
-the one that i cut for my mbc cracked at the end...
-the hose from the oil cap to the block ($58)...

im thinkin that i should pull them all off and head to lordco, see what they have that would work for me.... bah, im tired of this, who wants to buy a supra? lol jk

damn this sucks, I wanted to go to the meet so bad. Heh, 3 out of 4 supras are down at the moment - damn I wish I had one of these when they first came out... (I was 6 years old when my car was made but whatever).

Anyway, I'm looking at what plugs and wires to get right now. After calling around it looks like I can get NGK Platinums for $11/ea but the guy at Baker supply recommended the Bosch Platinum +4's for the same price. what would the hotter plugs do performance wise?

The NGK Coppers are $3/each. I did a bunch of searches on supraforums and people tend to think that the coppers perform better than the plats but don't last as long. If a set of coppers lasts me at least a year I think I'd be happy with the investment anyway though.

Also autolite wires are $75, NGK wires are $110, and Bosch wires are $120. Do wires make that much of a difference or should I re-use my stock ones?

Thanks.
