so does mine but whether they run or not, and also whether it's the cars fault or ours is besides the point.... most of the time the majority of them are off the road for one reason or another it seems.

Hell if I had another car to drive mine would probably only see 3 months of insurance a year! (and probably also wouldn't be such a pile o' shit)

The reason I'm not driving mine...There's a foot of snow outside, an inch of salt and insurance on the supra would be well over $1000 per month
That and it doesn't really work properly, it's all in pieces...But at this point, that doesn't matter anyways!

ontario sucks.

i'm not dissin anyone here by any means... just seems to be the way it goes, it's hard to get everyone together cause people are constantly dumping money into their cars and have other cars to drive.
I actually wish I was in the same boat.

or you could be like me and give up the car... For the past several months i have been without my 2nd car.. because the celicas timing chain snapped.

So i was just like screw it so i carpool to work and sve money and gas, right now i'm saving for my engine rebuild.

It sucks ALOT to not have a vehicle but i so want to be driving the supra rather than anything else so i'm paying the price.

well it's time to upgrade the fule pump

start to re wire it today caus esince my base persure on my fule rail is so little it scare's me all ways had i ran 22 base persure

these injectors love fule


so in stead of 10.8 to 11 volt she goign to be powered by 12 volt

buti going to be doing test on the motoro to see if she take 13.5 volt'a fully

how you do this is tap intot eh chage wire of the alt and teh main batt for safty reson ince your alt goes bad cause there will be drop in power if that happens withc chould be bad for your car


i was goign to run this boost pump i got but i think upping the curretn will make this good eghough
