So say that i got an 86-87 Supra NA then got a clip or a motor (maybe J-spec?) it would be wiring, and fuel. What about the trans? I'd like to use the turbo trans, Id bet that it could take more hp. What about the driveshaft and differential?

if you get a clip from canada or the US, everything is a direct swap. if you get a JDM clip, some things are different, ie engine harness, ECU, etc. the NA trans can hold around 400 rwhp before it grenades. if you could find a 87/88 NA with a BHG or dead motor for around $2-3000, then get a clip for around $2, it might be worth it, but its easier to just keep shopping around and find a decent turbo car.

Ok thanks. I think that for me being frugal (haha), it would be in my best interest to find a supra with a BHG or something along that line as opposed to a NA - turbo swap.

I think that I'd rather stay with the 7M. I could get a 86 Corolla GTS. I like those cars, no where near as fast as a supra but are light cheap and RWD.

Theres that white 1990 Supra at Penbrake by sleg lumber

240,000k, automatic, BHG

lady wants 5k

its been sitting there for like 2-3 months. and that price shes asking is just stupid... im sure she could come down on that alot

its not in very good condition and could potentially need a new engine (head has yet to be removed to be certain it is a BHG). but its there if u want to take a look

Thanks, I might go look at it. I've pulled a motor before so that's not that bad, but it's white (not my thing) and auto. Worth a look though.

yeah, worth a look. i was thinking of buying it if the price was way cheap, which i thought it would be, since its not in very good condition and hasnt been taken care of very well.... it could use a new leather on the interior, or swap in some other seats..

the interior/engine are crap, the paint is pretty good tho

then again if u want to find a mint MK3 its going to cost...

i came across a clean lookin' 87T today on canadatrader.com

alotta money but its better than buying a POS you'll end up having to fix 3x a week

shit, id up a few grand and check out that 87

it may be a 87, but it looks in mint condition, and 129 is LOW


its definetaly worth it to spend more in the begining than to have to deal with putting up with massive repaire costs in the future

keep in mind the supra is not a car for someone who barely knows how to check the oil.... you'll need to learn how to do things

my cars taught me more than i ever need to know about any car.

keep in mind my cars never broken down on me, and nothings been replaced because it needed to be done. everything has been 'modified' not replaced.

yet i had to deal with a hefty price tag in the begining.

Hey Toby, what's wrong with Raybestos? I haven't put them on yet so I can still return them... What's the price diff between these and Porterfield or TRD?

I don't want anything loud, and I'd prefer something that doesn't dust too much. I'm not really putting too much stress on my brakes - maybe in the summer but not now.
