Yeah its looking like it'll have to be an aftermarket seat if i want something lowerI dunno about how to do it with OEM Seats (I don't think there's any other way; correct me if I'm wrong)
If you get Bride rails and have Recaro like the one in the Evos or Euro Accords - I feel it is the best for comfort and low-ness, and bolsters you just enough. I'm 6 ft. And fat. I LOVE driving in the Supra and my other car is a high riding GLS SUV.

Those are the SP-J. I would not recommend seats for a street car that have hard plastic or metal surrounds for the shoulder harness pass throughs. They are terrible if you ever recline. Think waiting on something in the parking lot, or a passenger on a road trip. Your head on that hard material is very uncomfortable. This includes the SR-2/3/7 and a few others.Recaro like the one in the Evos or Euro Accords
This is what the Miata folks do, they call it a "foamectomy" and uh... it's amusing how tall of a person you can fit into those little cars.Or maybe you could take your OEM Seats to the upholstery shop and skim some "cushion" off the bottom, but I don't imagine that would comfy at all. Just a thought.
I'm thinking about a "foamectomy" or something along those lines. When it gets a little cooler out, I want to remove the seat (slider, brackets and all) and inspect to see if it can be modified in any way to lower it.This is what the Miata folks do, they call it a "foamectomy" and uh... it's amusing how tall of a person you can fit into those little cars.
I'm installing some Sparco Sprints into mine, because their stock seats are garbage for autocross use. The Sprints are pretty comfy for a fixed back, but are a little narrow in the shoulder.
If possible, I'd recommend finding a place near you that stocks this sort of thing, and work with them to find a seat that "fits" you well. I've sat in a handful of Bride seats and there are some that fit me great, others less so. They all LOOK like they'd work well enough though... so, if possible, try before you buy.
As far as your seat being powered, not an issue, you can simply unplug the connector on the car side, the connector on the seat side will remain with your stock seat. =)
