  1. 7MGE head rebuild. (stupid questions)

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    Valve seals? Super easy. Use a deep well 10mm or 12mm socket (can't remember what I used) to seat the seals on. There's a click/snap you'll feel when they do seat. Takes a few minutes to go around and do them all. Also, dunk the new seals in oil before you seat them, and make sure everything is...
  2. 2020 Toyota Supra bolt pattern & wheels

    2020+ Toyota Supra General Discussions
    You've shared your opinion, now enough with the incessant jabbering about the MKV. There's no need to respond to every thread and every post to voice your displeasure, we all get it. Leave it be.
  3. Bolt on 4-Piston front MB brakes & 2-Piston rear Evo brakes

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    No downside with slotted rotors, no. I've been having some very annoying issues with the rear pad material. I originally purchased HPS pads (5.0 material) for the Evo rear brakes, and unless I heated them up a LOT they wouldn't have any initial bite. This was aggravating for brake boosting at...
  4. MKV Supra Spotting Thread

    Knock off the stupid comments. If people want to talk about the MKV let them do it.

    For some reason it works when I do it, but if I refresh the page it goes back to being hidden. Your pictures are still there. I'll bring it to the admins attention and see if they can fix whatever might be going on!

    So! It looks like the pictures are still in your post, they just weren't showing up for some reason (they are now). Easy fix, although I can't explain why: 1) Go to the post which has the pictures that are not displaying properly 2) Click 'edit' (you should be able to edit your own posts) 3)...
  7. So you just got a 7M-GTE car...(head gasket)

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    Head gasket failure wouldn't affect oil pressure much at least initially, until a bearing is spun or something like that. I think the earliest sign of a blown head gasket would be to get a pressure gauge for the radiator, so when the coolant system starts getting pressurized more than...
  8. So you just got a 7M-GTE car...(head gasket)

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    That's a good list, and good logic too. A new accordion pipe from Driftmotion is $100, last I remember, that will be your most expensive fix. Verifying the head bolts are torqued properly will be the most time consuming fix but from a peace-of-mind standpoint it is worth the time. New spark...
  9. So you just got a 7M-GTE car...(head gasket)

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    Depends on a lot. The stock ECU runs the car rich, and runs timing on the conservative side, when under boost. Keeping boost in the teens is just fine as long as everything is maintained properly (no leaks, new plugs, injectors flow good, base timing is set correctly, etc). When you get into...
  10. So you just got a 7M-GTE car...(head gasket)

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    Looks like the camshaft position sensor, cover is broken. That sensor often gives people issues with cranking and starting because of heat and old age. New covers are cheap which is good.
  11. stripped head bolt?

    MKIII Technical
    For what it's worth, when you put the new studs in, they go in finger tight. Not saying you tightened the existing ones down or anything, but it's worth saying haha.
  12. ATF billet accumulators and shift kit cracked a340e

    MKIV (1993-1998)
    Very weird, I've never seen that before! I have the billet accumulators in my A340E (MK3 version though) and they push right in. With difficulty, because there's 4 or 5 orings, but no machining required. Not pointing fingers at you but did you follow the shift kit instructions correctly? Any...
  13. Fuel system upgrades/ requirements to run E85.

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    Nice looking lines plaaya! I used the stock lines with my Walbro 416 pump and it started dropping fuel pressure around 30 psi of boost on a 6062 (a noticeable amount of fuel pressure, not just a bit). I threw in a JMS Fuelmax to bump the voltage on the pump under boost and its been fine since...
  14. FS: Tundra fan clutch (works on MKIII)

    MKII/MKIII Parts
    Bump, still have this. I'm sure someone could use it. Best offer.
  15. First time building a 7mgte - What am I missing?

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    I still have mine for sale actually, but shipping to Australia would be a bear. The stock fanblades fit. The fan clutch is a wee bit thicker than the stock 7M clutch, so it will sit closer to the radiator, but does not hit the radiator or shroud. Part number is 08921-04950. It was $134 a few...
  16. Thin black pannels right behind drivr and passanger windows?

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    I think you're talking about these things: The 10 digit part numbers are Toyota part numbers which you might still be able to buy new. The 5 or 6 digit part numbers are clickable on that website, which will lead you to...
  17. NorthEast Supra Meet 2019 "Flying W April 27th" here we go again!

    NorthEast Forum
    Opened thread, probably a mistake. Can't make it, first T&T is that Sunday and Saturday (day of event) I have a family get together to go to. Have fun all!
  18. Catalytic converter dimensions

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    I have a Titan Motorsports test pipe in the garage somewhere (meant to replace the cat), I'll measure the length tonight/tomorrow and post it up. This is for the 7MGTE though.
  19. Compression Results / Head Torque Question

    MKIII (1986.5-1992)
    Doubtful that a retorque would help your low compression numbers, it wouldn't hurt to try. Depends on when the issue arose, milky colored oil, etc etc. Could be a bad headgasket, might be the rings in cylinder 3. Either way you'll need to do a teardown. 7MGTE head bolt torque specs is...
  20. 92' 1JZ High RPM build

    Builds & Projects
    Very cool about the pistons! Ah yeah, I'm sure decking the head/block will skew it a bit. Smart move, makes sense though. Interesting you mention the aluminum rods, I've been looking at BME/R&Rs offerings and seeing how much less they weigh than conventional steel (stock and aftermarket) rods...
