That's a VIN for a 1989 MK3 Supra, not a MK4, and it's actually not working in my Toyota System, even if I change that one letter "O" to a zero, like it should be.

Well, I don't really have ANY information on it, because it's not a valid VIN. The 10th digit is K so that makes it a 1989, and the start is JT2MA71 means it's an MA70 with a 7M-GTE engine.

The 11th digit should always be a number for a Japan-produced car (plant code), and it's the letter L, so that's off. There's a letter O in there, should be a zero.

I can't make that VIN work, and it's definitely not a MKIV.
