u said it was replaced thou oh weill see if that does any thing for you i still think i am kinda still right that you have bhg

cause ytou coolent is flowing that i saw but you never know it chould some tiem if it stock closed the coolent has no were to go but up like it did but


fomeing is caues by leaking hg nothing more nothing less in less you have high persure coolent system that most trucks do and such

what i have saw in my days liek buddy of mine said i don't under stand he chould not keep coolent in his rad it whould just dump out all the tiem


what it was is he bought trd rad cap 16 pound instaid of the supra stock 13 bad idea caue sthe cooling system doe snot work right now more doe snot vent proporly instead boil ino the over flow and over fill it and another thing is blowing and slipty coolent hose so don't pop on new higher pound cap in less you have bigger core rad or runing a water cooled turbo

sent the money order to Trent, so they are MINE!

well im goin to talk to my GF to see if she can lend/buy me the springs, if not ill have to wait another month or so for those. but since ill have really good shocks, i might cut the springs a couple of coils to drop it down and inch or two.... im not sure yet.

naaa don't cut spring you may be more harm then good plus you don't want o bounce all over road do you plus you can't cut em propory whiht out messing the camber caues one coil is 1 to 2 ins drop i think not sure some one cut his sprins that i know and ate his tires alive


and supra are bad eough when it comes to eating tires



a good upgrade that is goos thing to do it get new rubber plates for you casssie that will do alot caues hte stock ones will be old and icky like my old one's and if you are hard core go for hks pillow monts



what i might do to my car i s cut the spare tire hole out and just make it flat full out and make the body strounger plus mine has rust holes there so that is one reson why i want to do this

i need a new goddamn turbo heatshield, what can i use? the stock has big chunks cut out of it and its just sitting on some little brakets, since the Greddy 20G doesnt fit our stock heat sheilds.

now whenever my cars idling the heatshield bangs around on the IC pipe and makes a nasty *clank clank clank*

i was thinking of doing something like what Duane did on his supra.. check out the pic

that looks pretty easy to pull off. i would make it with stainless steel. kenny could make it for you, but thats just more $$.

i would say pick up some galvanized steel from Metal Supermarket (by KalTire on keating x rd) and you can use tin snips or a nibbler (both sell for under $30 at Slegg i think) and cut it out. file the edge, and bend it around a pipe to get the curve. then some high temp spray, and your good to go.

hehe

nothin really new to report, im just letting the oil drain out right now, changin it. im burning oil though, most likely a combo of valve stem seals and valve cover gaskets. valve cover gaskets are easy to do, just a pain in the ass. valve stem seals are VERY hard to do on the car... i think ill just buy a used head, rebuild it, and swap it in in the spring when i change the head gasket...

shocks are on their way to me, last i checked they were shipped out of dallas, hopefully they will be here soon.

murray, keep us updated on your tranny, you said its goin in monday (tomorrow)?
