with a 3200 stall in your tranny and some good tuning, mid 12s are probably possible, but not on the tires you have now...

well after my turbo and tranny rebuild, its going to be really interesting to see whats possible. i mean a 20G is not a common turbo on a Mk3, but the #'s put down by Duane im expecting some nice power output. as for Tuning, geez, just tuning the first 3000RPM of my S-AFC made all the difference in the world, i think for a first i actually have traction problems. before it was just point > shoot and go, never had the tires start cookin' on me during spool. well not on the 17"s atleast.


arggh im pissed right now. got a nail or a large staple looking thing in my tire and dont want to run a patched tire because of the dangers. so im gonna try and see if its possible to return my tires and get new ones. wonder what sort of warranty possibilities i have in this situation......

best upgrade on stock size rotors would be powerslot slotted or powerSTOP crossdrilled rotors, with Porterfeild pads.

Hey Supra fans....

My work just got in an '87 Supra turbo. Five speed, hardtop (no targa or sunroof), leather, electronic suspension (TEMS?), v rated Michelin Pilots, 121,000ish kilometers. We just re-did the brakes and the valve cover gaskets, oil change, few other things. It'll be going on the lot soon. No idea what price it's gonna be, but if you or anyone you know is interested, call Ron Trafford at Honda City. Tell 'em Sean from the shop sent you

I'm not gonna check this thread too much, so if you wanna ask me something, best to PM me.

met an older lady with a turbo auto 87. she said she thinks she might be having headgasket problems.... said it would be $3000 to fix. i and i didnt think to ask her if she was considering selling... DAMNIT! buy it for $3-4000, spend $1000 fixing it, sell it for $7500-8000.... pay off my car... lame.

yeah, lots of people just want to sell their cars once they find out its going to cost a few grand to fix. just easier for the mechanically handicapped i suppose.

if ya see her around again you could always ask.


speaking of BHGs

HondaTech, how about you include the price of a new head gasket in that supra. say put in ARP bolts, HKS metal head gasket, get all the machining and lapping done... now that would be a supra worth buying! hehhe

do you guys check the heads on supras before they go out? *im just curious* since ive seen so many MK3's in car lots before, none of them had any gasket work done, nor were the head bolts even been retorqued!

I mentioned the head gasket issue to the other mechanic doing the inspection on it, but I don't know if he ever went anywhere with it. I'n sure a savvy buyer could get a head bolt retorquing thrown into the deal.

Question, since I don't know as much as I'd like to about Supras, do the cams have to come out for the retorquing?

Also, if you're a Revscene member, you can get TRD Carbon Metallic HP's from Regency Toyota in Vancouver for 20% off... they're $165 a pair, so after taxes and discount, ~ $158
