still havnt done my heater core, motor is showing low oil pressure still, I think il put a new relief valve in but it still has a blow-by issue too, either way I cant drive it how it is, think I found a GTE to replace the tired GE though.

Yeah I think its time, the 7MGE seems to run great, but the oil pressure stopped going above 2.5kg/cm2, it used to run alot higher in higher RPM's. It blows the dipstick out of the tube, consumes more oil than it should.. I could pull it and rebuild it which makes sence but its less work to drop in an already rebuilt motor. Im almost positive my throw out bearing is toast too(clutch pedal vibrates pretty bad if I have it pushed in and rev the motor) plus the clutch is the original(it works perfect) but its old so my best bet is to pull the motor and trans id think. I just dont know how practical a 7MGTE will be with a W58 and 4.30's though.

What all do I need for the swap, so far I know I need:

87/88 Turbo ECU(my car is an 88)
Throttle Cable/Linkage
Some kind of resistor? for the tach.

what else will I run into with the swap?

Hopefully I can pick this motor up atleast, im not sure if he wants to sell it yet.

I've got a spare GTE head that one of you can have, for free.

I don't own Supras anymore, and it's taking up space in my shed. It's complete with valves, cams, etc.

stupid tires are expensive. got a set of yoko avid s/t for the celica, almost $500. only alternative was a set of used BFGs for $10 less, or brand new BFGs for $130/tire. no good tires in 14" anymore

the avids are better than the BFGs from all I could find on the celica forums. not a huge deal either way, car will be easier to sell with good tires instead of bald tires.

No. Not allowed. Keep it proper. The car isn't going to run for another year anyway, even if you use pushlocks.
