Hey guys! I haven't been around much lately, I was away all summer and school has been using all my time lately. Anyways just wanted to see what's up, any meets coming up that I should know about?

Right now I'm looking at buying a head off supramania, looks to be in good shape, I'm flat broke right now but it looks to be a good deal so I'm thinking about putting it on credit...I guess thats how it goes when you own a sup!
http://www.supramania.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54678
Let me know what you guys think! My turbo is smoking like a bastard now too soooo I might buy that ct off him too, although I really don't want to be spending money on stock...we'll see.
cheers!

Yaah I've done the MHG but the block was decked...not the head, I haven't had any problems but I needed to re-shim my valves anyways...I dunno I was thinking I'd buy this and maybe drop in some hotter cams, then swap heads. I've been looking at brian crower stage 2 cams, you can use stock valves, etc with them.
My clutch is working fine as long as i'm not launching it, it's just not up to the torque. The turbo is puking oil tho, i go through a litre every 700kms!

What's going on in ryans world right now, I see it says you've dropped the 86.5, are you still going for an older celica/supra 7m drag car or....?
Do you still have your bilsteins? haha wanna sell em?

Thanks Ryan,
who is Don? Any ideas on what that small price may be? What clutch is it? How would I get a hold of him?
Also let me know when you want some money for that flywheel!
cheers

all see if i can get ahold of him tommrow he needs to send me my pump and stuff


ps don said i can sell these 550's to any of u guys befor i just sell to him

350 frim there 2 mouths old pte perction units rough cost 70 to 80 each high quilty same as an rc injector but with diffent lable will do 550 at full duty cycle 500 on the safe side

pleas don't think any injetor will do this eather when injetors sit or have bean used to high duty cycle there life lowers fast and get un even quick just think what happens to gas when it gets old it turns yellow all let you figur out the rest

reson for selling i have 750's now

well i ordered the coupler i needed, $23 shipped to my door for a 3.25 to 2.5 reducer, noone in town could even get them (B&B, lordco).

intake mani and the last hardpipe should be welded up by friday, so i predict that my supra will be running within 1 month (+/- 1.25 years)

ya, $23 and it should be here within 8 business days, hard to argue with that. i'll probably get it back before the intake mani is back from powdercoating.
