    I was telling my students the other day in US History about buying my first MKIII in 2003 and how much of a turd it was ($500.00 car). One smartass kid says "Shoulda bought a Mustang"........................I figure ignorance is job security so I just shake my head and show some street racing videos from the glory days and all is well. God I feel like a GENIUS around some of these kids but I really do feel my age when I look at some of the dumb shit they do........

    I just fired this bitch up for the first time on an Electromotive! Now thats OLD SCHOOL. TEC3

    It's great to see so many names I remember from when I was active on here! I've recently gotten the MKIII bug again and began lurking around here once more. I sold all three of my supras about 5 years ago, so I might try to pick another one up. Their asking price seems to have gone up a bit, do you think?

    Prices have gone up somewhat but when you wheel and deal you can still find bargains like back in the day. I would say around Chicago the average price for a n/a is about 2 to 3k and a turbo will run 4 to 5k in good condition. I just picked up a 91 Turbo manual Supra for 1k and it was not running when I got it but it was a complete car.

    Wow, good to hear you still have it.
    I know the feeling... hate letting them sit for so long.

    Hey Brent..
    Yep, can't sell the old Supra. It's outdated and outclassed, but it's still my favorite car.

    Says who, My MK3 gets thumbs up daily, and the power she laid down definitely out classes most cars on the road today. If I can finish the things that I started and kill off the problems from my past tuner's issue it would be a force to be recond with. Not with standing after getting it to where I wanted it, I broke the crank bolt after leaving a breaker bar attached while installing my ported head as I cranked the motor. It sat for years after the great depression and lack of funds...Now I am getting the itch to finish!

    I will soon be devouring many current muscle cars, and roadsters today for lunch as I did in the past.

    Honestly, after all I have done to my supra. The happiest I've ever been on my MK3 is with stock JDM twins. It made 430 on pump and 435 tq. It's fun as hell, no lag and dead reliable! I haven't smoked a transmission, subframe, or engine in at least 4-5 years which says something! True it only had about 12000 miles in all that time! haha.

    I'm now converting to E85 on stock twins, hoping to see high 400's on a few more pounds of boost and maybe add cams... If the twins go, I'll just replace them at 200$ a set or get the upgraded stu twins. I'm just enjoying the car for what it is.. Not the best at anything (like brent said) outclassed everywhere but I just take off the top and cruise pacific highway 1 and enjoy.... I still LOVE the look of the mk3, it's so rare to see a clean one. They are all beat up to shit usually.

    I've been lurking for years now myself. Imagine my surprise in seeing all the old skoolers show up. I took a hiatus with my 88, but I'm back in it now. TEC3 too! Just got a SIRHC boost controller and I've got a list a mile long to repair/upgrade.

I'll be keeping my Turbo Auto, it's getting hard for this old chap to drive standard, especially when traffic gets real bad.
    I've seen him on H1 a few times Rey. Wondering if it was your car or not. Still looking good. If I ever leave Hawaii my MKIII is getting a 1JZ i have in my Mazda truck back home.

    Geeze, 1 year later, and I still don't have my car back together...

    I started rewiring the harness with new connectors and new pins (stock harness) and rewrapping it with tech flex, one thing led to another and now I have a mess in my garage.

    Diff is at Wier getting a 3.54 gear and a max grip kit. Highway will love me but 1/4 mile will hate me.
    Whole intake side is in shambles parts everywhere
    Bought all sorts of new parts that no one buys like undercover tray and little 10MM screws and harness clips.
    New clutch waiting to go in
    Walbro 485 waiting to go in
    Rewired all speakers with 12GA wire (why I don't know)
    Trying to add a sub connector on to my harness to allow for all my aftermarket sensors (boost, flex fuel, map sensor, line lock, yada yada) on one sub harness.

    F!!! It's like going to the supermarket wanting to buy 1 item and leaving with a full shopping cart... The only problem is I start and never finish. I miss driving my car haha and when I do drive it I always want to fix something. FFS.

    Texas, where it's full and we have no more room for people from out of state looking to move here. Seriously, we are full.

    Many of salutations and glorious days to you. I thought to myself that what you said above is something more Mk III owners, and especially potential owners, should heed and aspire to. It's easy to get lost in the hp game, as well as tinker game in general. Once that happens though, what comes to pass all too often is down below.

    Zazzinator, heed your comment and aspire to your own enjoyment! Enjoy the car for what it is, lest you find yourself getting at yourself for doing what you lean towards doing. Starting and never finishing. Smiles and happiness via car ownership does not come through the "what ifs", but rather I would say they come from the miles.

    Yep I agree, once this round is complete, not looking for any power just to resolve lingering issues.

    Driftmotion, but really he gets it from justaxels they are from a european Toyota truck I believe. I bought a diff from a toyota truck in hopes it was the right one but it wasn't (95 tacoma with a A02B diff)

    Anyways, we'll have to see how it runs, hoping that 12% longer gear will be nice on the highway.
