Tonight I was able to pull the upper and lower oilpans. Tomorrow I'm taking the intake maifold an y-pipe to get the egr holes welded up from a friend who works at a machine shop, will also be drilling and welding a oil return adapter to the upper oil pan. Next job is to pull the head off and clean the valve covers and other miscellaneous items.

Alright got a bit more done tonight, installed camshafts, cam gears, timing belt, distributor, fuel injectors and lower intake manifold. Question..... I am also deleting my egr, I have already welded the egr port closed on both tje y-pipe and lower IM. There is a air tank undernieth the lower IM. What is this and can I get rid of it?

First crank will be awhile lol I'm guessing end of feb early march as I'm saving for a standalone right now. All that's left in the meantime is to install the clutch and transmission, which I'm waiting on my clutch to come in now.

Keeping it a w58??? Good trans just dont go to hard on it even with the clutch, 3rd gear tends to blow up if you push it :( swapping out a w58 for an r154 would be the best bang for your buck although it shifts like a rock compared to the butteryness of the stock trans its still good. Also going proefi or AEM?? Cheers!

Sticking with the w58 for now.... I bought a rather mild clutch to take it easier on the trans. I will be going with an aem hopefully series 2.

I recommend protecting your Throttle Body Coupler or getting a turbo blanket/heat shield because it sits on top of the turbo and will crack and leak over time. just personal experience when I was NA-T

Thank you for the heads up! I actually have a turbo blanket and also plan on wrapping the downpipe. Hot piping for the 2jzge is similar to my 95 turbo'd mustang........

Seems I havnt been able to work on the Supra for awhile, Still waiting on my clutch to arrive, purchased from autoplicitiy on Sept 14th and still no clutch. Any how I did receive my catch can today, I got a smaller morrosso with a 6an fitting. The thing is plastic so I assume I could just thread in some 12an to go bigger? lol

Ordered my ecu. Went with a AEM V1. Also decided on going FMIC, started to mock up the SMIC and just couldnt go through with it. I have the front bumper off so why not just get it done with? lol Will be making my own kit using universal pipes.

Clutch isnt getting orderd tell I get my refund for the last one. Still cant decide on a dang clutch.
