Yeah, I called Bob right when Allan was making the order, to make sure he knew that he was out of time
But even if you decided not to keep the swaybars, you could probably turn them for a profit. Retail on suprasport will be ~$340 US witihin the next week.

Oh, and I wouldn't worry about Bob's ability to rebuild an engine - he's doing it, and he's doing it right. More people than one know how to build a motor. That thing will be stout when it's done, fresh motor bored 20 thou over and brand new turbo running 10psi... plus a few other goodies - I think he'll be just fine!

sounds awesome, that stroker kit would be pretty nice. I would be worried about running higher compression though... and I've heard nasty things about people using NA pistons. But awesome if you have a plan, and can pull it off should be pretty good!!

PS- remember the present!

stroker is a waste of money imho. the stroker kit offered by flatlander is US$2k+, but it does use forged pistons and rods. if your only aiming for 400rwhp, its not needed... just a good stock rebuild, fuel, and tuning, and you might come close on that turbo.

3000lbs and 400hp?

i dunno man, pretty high goal. but well worth shooting for...

weights going to be a problem for sure, and your turbo is going to be eating itself at psi high enough to make 400.. nitrous may be an idea. shoot some on your I/C core at the same time

also your rear end is gonna be freakin' useless with that much power and quick spool, so give it to me

Poor bob... i really am in a dilema, this supra is killing me. You guys cant shoot me but i might sell it yet... im still deciding, i have about a week to do some good long hard thinking. I wont say how much but the kid i bought it from is willing to make it worth my while lets just say that. He wants to offer huge coin for what its actually worth... but then like i said i dont want to sell it so im really stuck. The car had alot of sentimental value to him and he had to sell it cause the crediters were on his ass so i just caught him at the right time. I only paid $2500 bucks for it as most of you know. Man... this is tough. I dunno what im gonna do. I could sell it to him and buy another nice one. He is willing to pay me enough that i could buy another one. But if i sell it i would probably end up with my dream superbike. A brand new GSXR. Oh well, i guess i got some thinking to do. I posted this so that i could get some feedback on what you guys think i should do? Other than wanting to tie me to a fence and stone me to death please give honest opinions. I will be getting enough money back from it to cover the cost of parts i have into it, the purchase price, and then some, by quite a bit. Just remember that. Thats why its so hard for me to decide. Believe me, i really want this car, ive got so much money and time and sweat and blood into it and i havent even gotten to drive it yet that it will be very sad to see it go.... well... flame away guys...

Bob, read your MSN

Seriously, with the amount of money you will be walking away with... I would do it if I were you. Man, you can buy another (running) supra for that price, and have cash to spare.

Then you can do the thinking after that... another supra? or a bike?
I feel wrong saying to get rid of your supra... really wrong. But, at the same time that is an offer that I wouldn't pass up if I were in your shoes. Tough decision!

Ok, if you want a Supra, keep it. I think it would be stupid to sell it and buy a running one because it won't be freshly rebuilt and will cost just as much. If you're ditching it, get a bike! Cheaper on gas, insurance, ferries. Also keep in mind either way you will need two vehicles because you don't want to run the bike or the supra in the winter.

He already has the Celica. Rebuilt engine or not... for the price he could sell that back to the kid it's well worth it.
The celica is a nice car, seems to me like it is a perfect daily driver. Bob already said the supra would just be a summer car anyways, and I know how bad he wants that bike after talking to him about bikes a few times. A GSX-R will be fun enough, cheap on gas (which is a big thing!) and insurance, and will be way faster and at least as fun as the supra to drive in the summer months.

Bob, you do have some hours into that car... so that sort of makes it a tough call. I know you want to keep it too... I know exactly how you feel. I've almost sold my car to buy a bike twice, but I just couldn't do it. However, if someone offered the right price, I'd do it without thinking twice. It doesn't really matter what people will say, there really is TONS of supras that will be out there later on. And we all know that a good number of them will have been rebuilt at one time or another. Sure it might be rare to find a good one in BC, but there are other options.

Your supra is definetly nice, and would be a beauty when it's done. But I think a brand new gixxer would look just as nice sitting in the driveway
