As you can tell by my post I have a 99 Eclipse GSX. I just bought it in August. So why am I posting here about buying a supra?

Some of you might know about dsms and crankwalk. Well I didn't read up on it much before I bought my eclipse (too excited) and I have finally gathered about as much information I need on the subject. Obviously if you know what CW is, you know why I'm thinking about a new car. My final decision will come when I talk to two of my friends who work as mechanics at a local mitsubishi dealership. Even though my car has warranty to 60k miles, that means I can't mod my car much, and they can't permanently fix CW.

Anyway here's what I need you guys to help me with. What do I need to know about MKIV TTs? Are there any common problems that come up with these? I know toyota is a very reliable company, but with such a complicated piece of engineering like a supra, I wonder how reliable they are.

Also how much would I pay for one with less then 50k miles.
Are there any differences in the cars by year?
ex. Eclipses have diff wings for 98&99.

A guy i know has a 94TT and his turbos just went on him. He does push the car pretty hard, no make that very hard, but he has lots of money so that's alright -_-

I drove a MK II supra before my eclipse and I would very much like to be a supra owner once again.

Thanks,

turbo problems on some are due to heavey beating or poor maintance!

but supra are very very reliable

Q.Are there any differences in the cars by year

On average I'm sure thats true, but if your patient and wait to find a good deal, you can get one cheaper than that (mine was $20 with 45K and bone stock and I know of another with 50K for $18!).

one thing to add to Rangers comment:

96's were available in manual, it was the only year that they had a 5 speed. It had something to do with emissions. Very difficult to find a 96 with a manual. Mainly, because it was the slowest year for new supra sales.

There were only non-turbo's available in a manual trans in 96.

Later, Steve
