Jason over at JP Importz has been working his ass off for the past few months trying to get his Supra together and it's finally all starting to come together. While it's not totally done by a long shot, he's got a very good starting point and damn his car is FAST! Driving around with the turbo 400 tranny is fun :) I was over at the shop today and took some quick pics of the car so check them out. He also took home his very first trophy today at a local car show in which he ended up winning the class and so congrats again Jason :bigthumb:

Car looks great man :bigthumb:!
Quick question though wont you have problems with the upper radiator pipe seams cracking when the engine flexs on the mounts under load seeing as there is no flexability in the hard pipe with Wiggins clamps?

Jason man im glad you finally got the car done bro. I know you guys have been working hard down there to get her done.

Hows the Veilside manifold holding up and performing on her. Ive heard some pretty bad things about it. Just trying to see what your opinion on it was.

Car looks great man, good luck hunting skylines in it :)

Greg,
We tested this set up for a while and never have any problems. Also solid engine mounts are in place, so it would reduce the movement.
Ian,
This is a copy of Veilside manifold. We went through many trouble to get it to fit. As you can see, my TPS was hitting the power steering pump pulley. We had to cut and welded the throttle plate at the different angle. Intake runner port doesn't match due to very poor casting, so we had to port every single runners. It does take some modification. Is it better than any other intake manifold outhere? I don't really know. We in the process of making our own manifold, I will let you know how it goes. Also a different and bigger set up will be in by Vegas meet. We should hook up and do some highway pulls.

Wow, that car has come a long way since I last saw it!

I think 36Chambers just about summed it up: "Car looks like it means business".

Way to go Jason :)
