· Glad To Be Back
OK what power goal do you plan to attain with this car? Your goals for the car make our advice much different.
If you aren't looking to make over 500whp or anything I don't see why you shouldn't have a problem with the VVT-i engine. Make sure you have the ECU as well. Do a little searching to read up on what you want to do, but you shouldn't need to upgrade your rods till you are around 700whp or so.
If the wife is going to be driving it for the most part you can pull 450whp out of a good set of stock twins (USDM twins) with basic supporting mods so I'd say stick with that for a while. Anything past that point and you are going to be dropping some coin.
Also I can't remember off the top of my head, but if the NA tranny is the same as the TT tranny you should be ok with it on the stock turbos as far as it holding up to the abuse. Just need a stall and some tranny coolers. Browse MKIV.com, and some of the stickies/how to's.
New Member to the Supra scene but not the boosted world!
My name is Chris. I am currently stationed in Okinawa, Japan.
I was gonna buy a RHD Supra out here, but then found out about all the import hassle and jumped on a steal I found on ebay (was only listed for 9 mins..lol)
Anyway I bought the car for the wife, so it will stay auto, although I might upgrade the tranny to something stronger. The car as we speak is on a transport trailer to Florida, to where my wife is staying till I get back.
Now I am by nature an Audi and BMW guy, but being out here in Japan for the last few months has given me an itch for a Supra. So I am here to learn and be a part of the Supra community!
I drive an A6 2.7TT (2nd fastest in the USA)
I recently broke into the 11's before I left thanks to a WOT Box!
Anyway back on topic.
The goal is to make the car fub but not dangerous for my wife(even though she wont ever leave vaccum..lol)
Can I go GT28RS hybrids without having to change out internals? Or is the highest you can go a powerhouse street without changing con-rods?
Anyway I have a deal on a 2JZGTTE VVTi out here for 700 bucks..I dont know what shipping will cost me but I think I am gonna go for it. I left the guy a 10000 yen deposit on it
Can everyone make a list of stuff I should look for while over here in Japan. Theres tons of Junk yards with Supras in them.
I already got a pair of Recaros out of my friends EVO 5 for a few hundred bucks
heres the link to where I bought the car.
