Hey guys,

Just wondering what setup you are all running?

Engine/Turbo/Exhaust/Electronics etc.

I'm wondering which way to start going and wouldn't mind some advice

Looks like I'm going to be taking mine off the road next weekend to rebuild the engine. Lots of little things that I'd like to tackle all at once

-Bad valve stem seals (puffs blue every startup!)
-Clacking lifters
-Leaky rear main seal
-Stock (but still OK) HG that needs upgrading

I figure I might as well pull the motor, and just give'r on it. As it stands now I think I'm gonna do the works

Metal Gasket (HKS/Greddy/Cometic ... any opinions on which is best?)
ARP everything (head blots, main studs, rod bolts)
Oil pump
Ross pistons (of $$ permits)

Sounds like a fun time, and a hell of a lot of machine shop work Anybody have preferences on shops or know of guys that have experience with supra heads?

...startin' to sound like a big chunk to chew!

Cool, I'm thinking of picking up a used SAFC2 off of supraforums for $175 shipped...I don't think he knows I'm in Canada

Is that a decent deal? I've looked on eBay and it seems like that is a reasonable price.

that's not a bad deal man... I bought my safc1 for I think 150 US, then I sold it locally a short while ago for 180 when my headgasket blew lol.

I'm sure ryan or one of the guys in victoria could point you in the direction of a good machine shop. I had mine resurfaced at Thompson's Automotive in Nanaimo and they are good guys. I know they've rebuilt a few other 7M heads and a complete motor or 2 in the past.

I guess you gotta decide what your goals are powerwise/what your budget is and I'm sure some of us could at least point you in a general direction.

PS - don't forget about the suspension!! swaybars are still the single best thing I've done to my poor car.

SAFC

Well, it turns out it was 175 without shipping, so it came to 206 and that damn paypal fee :P

But oh well, honest guy and I hope to get it soon. Does anybody have wiring diagrams?

well i fabed up the 91 v6 brakes it is no go in less you want to run less pad on the rotor witch = ant better then stock

i gonna try the 95 plus ones there goig to be more exp but there alot lighter cause there made of aumlin and such in stead of cast steel

so you were planning to run the v6 calipers on stock sized rotors? if so, there wouldnt be much of an advantage. bigger rotors would help along with bigger calipers, as i bet you can lock up the stock brakes already, and a larger caliper isnt going to help with fade.

well the reson for it is this faster brake respones and tighter feel and you pad will not muchrom under hard breaking like the stock ones teend to do

as asfor riding your brakes there not going to help to much it will be better but not liek light and day

another way to amke the per 91 and up capler to work is to use tt rotor but then you only be useing soem of it and it kidna look funny

Hey Ryan, what kind of boost controller are you using?

I'm looking around for a boost gauge/controller. Maybe the greddy profec b spec 2?

I don't plan on upgrading my turbo for a while ... is it even possible to hook one of these bad boys up with a CT?

Sounds good

I'd like to pick your brain on what/how I should go about building up a 2nd motor. Right now my 7M is clackin' something fierce (well not THAT bad).

I wouldn't mind just coming by to see your "Lab"
