Virtual Works manifold vs. Veilside. We've heard this debate over and over again. After all the debates, nobody "really" knew which one was superior. The information I previously received about these manifolds was from reputable sources that have tuned Supras with both intakes. I based my...
The best and least expensive method of keeping your original or custom wheels clean is by using a soft cloth with a mild soap and water solution, staying away from harsh abrasive cleaners. A light coat of soft paste wax will keep the shine lasting for years on polished wheels. Never...

Heat is what kills automatic transmissions and the stock tranny doesn't have a very big pan to hold excess fluid which helps absorb and dissipate heat.
The first thing I would do to give your tranny the best chances at holding up for a long time would be to install an aux. cooler and perhaps...

This is for those of you who are not familiar with having a turbo car, it is NOT the same as having a NA. You have to take care of the turbo to make it last, believe me, I went through a couple of turbos because I didn't know what I was doing.
Change the oil at least every 3,000 miles, or more...

OK, Here is what you need to do to get adjustable boost on your #1 wastegate (EBV) I am not sure what I paid for the Turbo XS MBC (manual boost controller) It wasn’t much. You will see it in the pics.
Many reasons why I did this mod, but the driving force was I wanted "some"...

I decided to get this out of the Toyota Manual before I shipped it off to help with people's questions before they had to post or so they would not have to wait for answers. Remember this guide was made for a stock car so somethings will be different if your car is modified. Regardless, it is a...
1) Go to Auto Zone. Get 2 cans of GUNK CITRUS 2 STEP CLEANER/DETAILER.
2) Get a plastic shopping bag (Assuming all of you have a aftermarket intake.)
3) Let the engine get totally cool and dry. Cover the intake with the plastic bag and apply the GUNK 2...
I've been thinking lately, there isn't a guide for newbies or anyone else out there that breaks down the minumum and maximum prices involved in purchasing a MKIV Supra and converting it to Single Turbo. I put together a spreadsheet that outlines costs involved, assuming you do all your own labor,...
Went to Tampa this weekend and we installed the HKS VPC, and the HKS SuperAFR. We removed the Fields Harness, the Apex SuperAFC and the Electronic TTC switch I had previously installed.
The electronics are temporarily mounted in the glovebox until we can professionally mount them in to the left...
There is a lot of talk on Supraforums about using any other oil in the 6 Speed other than Toyota. A lot of people are switching over to Royal Purple Synchromax, and I decided to make that switch as well.
I feel I must post this after the replies, Toyota recommends V160 only in their...
Switching your rear differential oil over to high quality Redline oil is a must in my book. Many people have chosen the Redline Heavy Duty Shock Proof to go into their rear diffs, so here's how you change it.
Here is a picture of the Redline Shockproof. You will need two quarts which will run you...
The time has come. My stock clutch disc and ACT pressure plate has given in to the 600 ft/lb of torque that Justin Nenni was able to squeeze out of the 67mm turbocharger on my car.
Under the advice of Dusty, Justin, Sarkis at Dynoxtreme and a few other people, I decided rather than spend 1000.00...
These are the new AP Engineering shifter bushings from MVP Motorsports.
This installation will involve dropping the transmission to remove the shifter fork. I have been told you do not have to drop the tranny to install these, but we were doing the clutch so we did remove the tranny....
Time to get rid of the paper factory speakers in the rear. I have these sitting in a box now for about 6 months ready to go into my next car. Decided with the free time, the rears should go in today.

If anyone comes across a good deal on a number one turbo, but needs to put it in the number two location, it is possible. To do so, you must swap the compressor housings. It was pretty easy to do so. Here are a couple of pics of the process. I figured I'd post them in case anyone would like a...

For lack of anything better to do last weekend I decided to figure out why the glovebox was so heavy. It turns out there is a metal plate inside that, as far as I can tell, serves no useful purpose. Heres how to take it out, its pretty easy.
