Ive left the plugs out lastnight so it should be good today, but i probably wont be back down there tonight anyways. I will do another compression test tomorrow when i go down. I should have a more accurate reading this time with all the fuel evaporated now. I decided that i will probably end up doing a complete rebuild anyways, just for peace of mind. I will get new mains and big end con rod bearings and at least a set of rings, but probably pistons as well. I will see how they look when i get them out. Im thinking of getting the car repainted once im all done the engine depending on cash flow lol, but we will see when the time comes. I would really like to get it painted black, even though it is a pretty neat charcoal kinda color now but the paint has quite a few little nicks and scratches throughout it.
well the cool thing about 7ms is they have no clear coat so you can wet sand em away sweet eh

some of the clours did come clear coated thou i forget wiht at one i knwo the white ones don't nore does black and gay as well same wiht blue but i don't knw9o about tan


as for piston i highly dought you will have to replace em

in less you ring broek and stuff

ps when doing comp test do it dry and jump the termials but you have no power so just take the fuel pumps fuse out the do ti

54 trim has been proven to bring the most bang for the buck, and quick spool.... so i agree, unless you want huge HP #'s

Haha right on guys, thanks. I have thought about upgrading it, but i can probably get the stock one rebuilt for fairly cheap from a guy i know. Just out of curiousity though how much roughly would this 54 trim upgrade cost?

$500-$1000, depending on where you get it done.

Oh my gosh you guys, as if he needs MORE ways to spend money on that car!! You are going to be broke for a long time! Sigh...

At least it will be a brand new car by the time you're done.

Chances are you can get it rebuilt for next to nothing (if anything at all). In which case, I think you should just leave it stock for now. You can always upgrade later, y'know.. when it actually runs? But seriously if you do all this stuff before you even drive it, you're not going to have anything to look forward to! Then you'll end up crazy like that guy with 750+hp or whatever it was. Haha.

Back to the reason of this post. You may as well redo the interior black while we're throwing money around. You already have to replace the door panels and carpet. I wouldn't bother replacing that stuff right away though just so you don't tie yourself to that tan. It's just that sitting here thinking about it, red as an accent color isn't really working with tan in my head.

Basically my point was, rebuild the engine first and get most of the bigger things like a BOV, secondly I'd take care of the body work, then leave the interior looking like shit until the very last.

remmber ebvery turbo has some shaft play so it might not be bad in any way you cna do test to see if it is dead when it is off the of the car

as in rebuilding the turbo

500 ucsk just for rebuild
950 for a new cold side what ever compser you chose

as in the 54 trim is is the bes compsure to match the hot side but fuck that just go bigger and have tad more lag a 54 trim will be just like stock wit just little mroe kick to it stock is 38 trim or some thgini i forget and such

but cheak out your turbo frist

Would a '86.5 AFM from an N/A Supra work for my '87 Turbo Supra?

Nope. Its a totally different design. The Karman Vortex measures the ionized air around a wire I believe, while the NA just has a flapper door that gets pulled open by air pressure/vaccuum.
