I just watched fast and furious on dvd. You know the part when he brings the wrecked supra to the shop and shows him the supra cause he owes the guy a 10second car. Well the red supra is a n/a non twin turbo car look closely when he takes the hood off. you see the intake manfiold over the block its non turbo, anyways i just wanted to post this fact lol

maybe they did that purposely... there's a lot of weird things in the movie... it keeps the movie from getting boring... yes, the wrencked supra had our n/a engine and nobody knows it but us :cool:

Hey guys i just watched the movie tonight and yeah i noticed that immediately when i saw the movie in the theatres. But they did that on purpose when the guy is talking about it he mentions its a 2JZ GE engine he doenst say 2JZ GTE so they knew it was non turbo and they just grabbed all the parts from Japan and made it. Definately not outta the question at all considering the money they are throwing around in that movie it would be easy to build a car like that. Either have alot of money or know what the hell your doing like Dave H and whamo you have a 10 second NA Supra.

Its the dumbest part of the movie IMHO. The techie says "whoa, a J2Z . . ." THERE ALL J2Z's!!!!! He doesn't say "ge" or "gte"

Then he goes to the computer and flashes some pictures of Lieberman's car like he's designing it right there. Why insult our intelligence like that.

I like the movie overall though. Point Break with cars instead of surfers.

Also the green eclipse that they pop the hood, infront of hector has no turbo in it.

Yeah before that movie came out......and it was still being shot.....somebody put an order out for like 5 or 6 na Supra's. As far as I know everyone done up in lambo orange in the movie was NA except Lieberman's.....all the stunt cars were NA's, actually that movie technically is made up of na Supra's........all the pretty car scenes are of Lieberman's......while the chase scenes are of NA's w/out fmic, different exhaust systems, and cheaper paint. The turbo sounds are dubbed in. And the car that takes off w/ the Ferrari didnt have lsd. however contrary to some peoples beleifs, some NA's like mine came w/ factory lsd.:)

Could somebody direct me to a shot of a n/a lsd & a twin turbo Torsen unit? I think that the Torsen housing has reliefs for the worm gears. Is the n/a lsd a Torsen or a conventional clutchpack type? I checked an older forum & mine is not coded for an lsd, although my mkIII n/a had TEMS, leather ABS & lsd. It was a clutch pack type & the housing looked pretty much the same as what I have now.

Anybody know if the more plentiful mkIII lsd is a direct swap for the mkiv? A Torsen has got to be very rare & expensive for the n/a & I know the turbo version is geared about 3:30 as opposed to 4:30 or 4:11, whatever the less torquey n/a is.
