Hey guys, I have been on the forums for quite a while, (Formerly Eclipset96, on the forums since I guess 2k1) and I just lately got my first Supra. It's and 1988 Toyota Supra NA Auto, Ya ya, I know what your thinking, Slow as crap. Well, I picked up the car for $400 dollars, it had a blown headgasket, snapped rod on #6 and a spun rod bearing. I bought a Jdm Na engine from Soko.com and put it in. The following is the finished product, might I also add, I love it even though its slow.







Oh Nick, Where are you, Oh Nick, I know you wanted to see it, so here it is. Thanks guys, tell me what you think. - Adam

Nasty as in good, or nasty as in bad, I personally love the gunmetal rims. BTW, Ideal was right, it was actually more like a 600 $ difference, plus I'm a poor highschool student.

Its a pretty darn clean car for that cheap. A gte swap would be alot more than just the extra 600 dollars for the motor. You have to figure all sorts of other parts needed for the swap not to mention all the time it would take. Keep it looking good bro. :bigthumb:

Not quite ansky, I wrecked the Eclipse, and sold it to my brother, it was bad enough to where I didn't want to fool with it, parents then bought me a Dodge Stratus. I sold the Stratus, and got the mkiii. Btw the stratus was a 2.4 fwd auto car, and I was saying the engine swap for the turbo engine would have been what I paid for the jdm na engine + 600 so in total about 1300.
