Well that's one vote for a turbo and 2 for an NA, im not saying im right or anything, because i really dont know, but supposedly its much easier to work on an NA than a turbo, and its one less thing to worry about breaking, since i really dont have alot of cash to spare on replacing big things

I second not wasting any time on an NA. It's just not worth it.... the whole time you will just be wishing you had bought a turbo, unless you just want a heavy ass daily driver.
Don't get me wrong, they are still nice and everything, more simple and possibly more reliable but if you are looking for a car for performance then a turbo is definetly the way to go. Tons more power despite what people say about it only being a few more ponies. The whole powerband is moved lower into the RPM range.

PS - I might have everything you need to convert to turbo pretty soon here. actually, practically everything but the block.

get a car that's lighter and cheaper on gas then!

I don't even think I'll be driving my supra much this year again. SInce moving and going to school, it's harder to drive around. I probably drove it for like 3 months in the last year.

I vote for buying something cheap and economical now, and saving for a turbo supra! A non-turbo probably doesn't get a whole lot better fuel mileage. Plus you don't want to have to convert it to a turbo, especially if you can't do it yourself.

haha, look at all the supra owners telling this guy not to buy one!

It's a tough choice, I hate driving other cars now. But at the same time I sometimes want to get rid of it and buy something that is cheaper to run. In all reality, the car is great for the price point, it's quite a car. But let's face it, they are not cheap to drive, insure or maintain!!

The point I am trying to make is not that you shuoldn't buy one, but that you shuold look into all these costs first, adn see if it will be a dream come true, or else a nightmare because you can't even afford to drive the damn thing.
