I originally wanted a MK3 supra too but didn't like the automatic or RHD

Anyone know what it'd be like to swap a RHD to LHD? figure you just need a donor car?

Why wouldn't you just buy a LHD 5speed, it's not like there's a shortage of them.

O rly?

it was hard to find one in decent shape without 200,000+kms

The Japanese ones have fewer kms and are usually in way better condition, nicer options, from what i've seen... plus it's JDM

USDM ones have burgandy interior.. lolwat?

this shows you how much you know

for the price of 1j plus swap and to get it to do 500hp

I can do less on a 7mgte and still have more torq

these are the 1j's con's


cams are shit
stock tiwns are shit
stock fule rails are shit
stock fuel injector's are shit
1j map sencer is shit
hydro fans are shit

there is reason why they made the 2j cause it was better

so this is short and sweet

7m or 2j

I'm sure when some of these imported Aristo's and supra's with 1j's get up to 250,000 - 280,000K, like all of the domestic 7m's, there will be a lot of non-running 1j's too.

90% of the reason people think the 7M isnt reliable is because of poor and cheap maintainence by owners. Build it properly and dont cheap out, and it will last for ages.
