actually they make more power than a stock 7mgte (but with less torque), and the stock turbos have higher potential than a stock ct26. also, most of the parts that normally require servicing (accessories like power steering and a/c) are identical to those off the 7m, so parts are more common than you would expect. the 1ggte is definitely the most underrated motor available to the supra.theres a few, but parts are hard as crap to find and they dont make much power. only 2l displacement.
See that's a good idea for us with 7m's, but that engine bay, is just to messy for me. I like clean and simplistic, that's why I think I'd like the 1g intercooler pipe instead of that one, because it looks like it's supposed to go. Just my opinion thoughHood closes but support may have been cut, I cant remember since I havnt seen the car for a while. This is how I plan to route my pipes.
And of course the pipe can be flattned like the 1ggte for more clearance, and a lowered alt also makes more space.
