ok so i did the honda thing... ehh it was fun till i realized that i wasnt getting anything for my money... so after dumping just under 6G's into a 93 hatch back, no body kits. or flashy light, it looked bone stock but sat 3" off the ground... SOLD THAT FUCKA for $600 and got my first supra for $450... it was an 88 targa 7mgte, had like 160,xxx miles on it... after talking to the lady that had the it i brought a battery with me and after sitting for 6 years it fired up the second try.. so i handed her the money told her id be back with a truck to tow it away.... got it back to my house, found a bunch of rust (the 6 years it was sitting was in a field) realized i was gunna need another body to drop this motor into... so i got to looking.... heres some pics of my 88



so i got to looking around for another one... couldnt find anything around here(maine) worth picking up...
till a guy at my work told me about a friend of his that had an 89 N/A and was hard up for money... it almost sounded too good to be true... so i went and checked it out. the body was in great shape, just 2 little spots of rust that would be fixed with no problem... it ran... started right up and i ended up driving it home... it had rained that morning and the ground was wet, so about a mile away from the guys house i drifted thru a round about and the motor started knocking... i was planing to drive the N/A and build up the turbo motor but that knock kinda forced my hand into swapping em out... but heres a few of the 89

:) i am keeping it, im putting it on but im taking off the "hump"... i like the open look to the 88, but the smoothness of the 89... the edges in the 88 are much more sharp and pronounced then the rounded edges of the 89.. iv started it, but have sense put it on the back burner so i can get the engine running... after that ill be back at it...

so just a little update.

tomorrow i place the order for the 1jz FFIM both upper lower pieces and the TB. im also grabbing an MK4 intercooler of a friend for $50. so im gunna order son new piping and a guy i work with said he would weld it up for me. i just need to get it cut to fit.

after i get everything for the new intake setup im ordering 720cc injectors, a bigger fuel rail, better FPR, bigger fuel pump.. im also getting a LEX V8 AFM for an even trade for the drivers seat out of my parts car with is awesome because i had no place to put the drivers seat from the 89 once i put the racing seat in. im also ordering ( i might just custom make it) the harness bar for my 4-point harnesses.



thanks again everyone for all the help and support.
