4-21-07 update, the car has been sold and picked up by the new owner. Thanks to everyone for their support and kind words!

Well, due to health problems that came up the day after the TX2K7 meet, I'm now needing to sell my car. A little too much excitement I guess.

1994 TT car, White with black interior. $31,000
The car only has 59,400 miles
Built engine (701 RWHP by previous owner)
Built auto tranny
For the most part, the car was built up in Kansas City by Mark Epstein who owned the car from 1999-end of 2005 or early 2006. He sold the car to an older domestic (Trans Ams) car guy in New York state who bought it sight unseen. This owner drove the car (his first ride in a Supra) scared himself so bad he came home and put the car in storage until he sold it to me about a month later.

VIN: JT2JA82J1R0012041

The car is located near Grapevine TX and has always been stored in an insulated garage since I purchased it a little over a year ago. It hasn't seen any rain since I bought it.

The title has a lien with my credit union, but other than that it is clear.

Here is the mod list from the previous owner (Mark E.)

This car only has 58,000 original miles on it and has a fully built motor. Do not confuse this car with other cars which have over 100,000 miles and just a fresh factory short block and a single turbo kit. This is an excellent car, in excellent condition with a clean title.

I bought the car in February of 1999, and all of the modifications were done during my ownership. I am sure I will forget some things, but here is a basic list of what has been done to the car:

JE forged pistons (.020" over)
Eagle rods
ARP rod bolts
ARP main studs
torque plated
new water pump
new oil pump
new timing belt
new timing belt tensioner
new gaskets (head, intake, turbo, etc.)

3 angle valve job
titanium springs
tiatanium retainers
Crower 264/264 cams
new valve guide seals, etc
ARP head bolts

Turbo kit:
RPS header
custom 60mm HKS GT wastegate
Tial 40mm BOV
Sound peformance SP71 GTQ with .68 exhaust housing (polished AND heat coated)
full 4" intake
custom 4" downpipe/midpipe (heat coated)
Tanabe Racing Medallion exhaust

Fuel system:
Sound Peformance fuel system professionally installed by Sound Performance
Custom dual feed, center return fuel rail
883cc injectors
twin in-tank fuel pumpsAeromotive fuel pressure regulator
fuel pressure gauge
EGR block off plate
all braided stainless lines

HKS Super AFR fuel controller
HKS EVC EZ boost controller
Greddy 60mm electronic peak/hold boost gauge
Greddy 60mm electronic peak/hold EGT gauge
Greddy 60mm electronic peak/hold fuel presssure gauge
tranny temp gauge
G-Force ECU with 7800 rpm raised rev limiter
HKS DLI ignition amp
Blitz FATT turbo timer

Greddy 3 row front mount intercooler
oil cooler
tranny cooler
HKS 1.3 bar radiator cap

Stainless steel brake lines
Synthetic brake fluid
Metal Matrix brake pads
new factory rotors
Eibach pro-kit lowering springs
Cusco front strut tower bar
17 factory chrome wheels (with 275 40 17 Nitto DR's on back)

Sony CD head unit
Sony 10 disc cd changer
A/D/S 320is separates in the door (5.25" + tweeter and xover)
(2) A/D/S RS10 10" dual voice coil subwoofers
A/D/S 4100.2 amplifier (4 x 100 watts at 4 ohms)
1 Farat Lightning capacitor

Boost Logic professionally built auto transmission
Precision Industries 4200 stall lock-up torque converter
in-cabin manual lock up switch

Almost all of the major components of this car are brand new. For example, the entire motor, the head, the turbo, the BOV, the wastegate, the FPR, the tranny, etc, all have approximately 1600 miles on them. New coil packs were installed about 2 months ago. A new battery was installed last week.

This car needs NOTHING. It does not smoke, drip or leak anything.

The car made 701 RWHP on a dynojet dyno at 29.5 psi, tuned to 11.24:1 across the board, BEFORE the new 4" downpipe/midpipe.

Please remember, this is not the typical 100,000 mile car that someone threw a new shortblock in. This is a low mileage car with a fully built bottom end, headwork, cams and built transmission. No expense was spared on this car. Everything was professionally built and professionally installed.

Yes, the car has a clean title. Yes, the car has a clean carfax. It has never been in a collision.

Yes, the dyno sheets and timeslips will be left in the car for the new owner. I can take pictures of them and email them in advance, if necessary.

The car could be driven across country right now, as it sits. It needs nothing.

The coolant is fresh, the oil is fresh, the tranny fluid is fresh. The A/C still blows cold.

The car has run multiple 10 second passes at over 127 mph on drag radials in the heat on the same night. There is no question that this car performs.

We have another project we are working on, and too many vehicles our garage. This car is a steal at $36,500.

Remember the above mod info (and $36,500 price) were from Mark's ad.

Here is the list of things I've done to or added to the car in the past 14 months.

The following items have been added or changed on the car since purchasing it in Feb. 2006. The car has been driven approx. 1k miles while in my possession the past year+. I’ve kept it in the garage and it hasn’t been rained on in that time. leather interior which is black and has red inserts and Turbo embroidered onto the front seatbacks in black stitching.

TRD Black/Red steering wheel

Powerhouse Racing PCV system added to the car and the cam covers polished

Powerhouse Racing upper chromed radiator pipe added

Powerhouse Racing 4” chromed intake pipe

Chromed Cusco strut brace

Chromed battery hold down bracket

Polished aluminum plate next to the radiator

Polished power steering reservoir

Polished engraved power steering reservoir and brake master cylinder caps added

Modified, ported, and coated factory intake manifold

Trac butterfly removed from throttlebody and housing area ground smooth

Track removal mod completed

Simmons Alta wheels imported from Australia excellent condition, and the wheels look great on the car!
18 x 9 front with 265 x 35 Pirelli P Zero tires (great condition)
18 x 10.5 rear with 285 x 30 Michelin Pilot Sport tires (nearly new w/ about 600 miles on them)

Beau Fenske did a compression test on the engine for me after my heart surgery with the following results;

#1 152, #2 150, #3 150, #4 152, #5 152, #6 150

Ross and his son at Dynosaur Performance replaced a cracked boost gauge line and leaking AN fitting on the tranny earlier this week and looked the car over for me. She's all ready for her new home!

That's it for now! Remember, the car is currently listed for sale at $31,000.

Richard has been a good friend of mine for six years and you can have complete confidence in buying from him; he's got integrity.

The car is in very nice shape. A low mileage, accident-free example with a built motor and all the goodies. I did the compression check myself. Heck, I should be buying this car!

Also, Richard is a strong supporter of the Supra community and is the owner and founder of AutoSport Wiring, which is the only company that currently makes the ECU-patch harness for the MKIV (similar but better than the old Fields harness by HKS).

This car is the real deal at a great price.
