I'm considering buying a second gen Supra i'd just like to ask some questions if you guys could answer them. For the different years there were different engines can i get some engine codes and specs or if you have a site it'd be good. What are the common problems seen in these cars? Where i live the most expensive one is 2000 bucks they go in the 1000+ and a few for 1000 less i see that they say all perfect condition runs great stuff like that i hear they take alot of shit can they? I was wondering if they had a decent amount of performance mods for an all motor build i'm not looking to be adding alot but maybe 30 or 40 rwhp probably just i/h/e/c/p unless it reacts good with mods. Are Limited Slips available most likely a clutch type i would like to buy. How would you rate the handling on a scale of 1-10 compared to its rival cars (i don't know if it has rival cars maybe a ae86?) Well thanks mebbe you'll be seeing a new mk2 owner

I'll rate the handling 7 out of 10 right now for MY car which has 20 year old everything, I know all my shocks are going bad so there is a little bit too much lean now, but generally speaking the car handles awesome, would handle better if I had aftermarket suspension even. Just got to watch out for LSD in the rain, the ass end likes to kick out on ya!

1982-83 Supras; 145hp
1984 automatic p-types 150hp
L-types and automatics retain 145hp
1984 p-type 5 speeds-1986= 161hp and 169ft/lbs.

This should be correct, may be a little off on the L-types tho

*btw* the automatics had the same amount of HP except in 1984
1985/86 automatics =161hp as well
1982/84 autos=145hp
