Hardtops are almost impossible to find. All years are basically the same. 93~95 had a stiffer suspension. 96s are auto only. and 96 up has OBDII but that's not a performance disadvantage. Only an annoyance if you replace the DP without a cat. You should only worry about finding a model that fits your price range. Good luck. It took me three months to find a good one. Has taken some people almost a year. Have your money ready and do not hesitate a minute to buy as soon as you find what you want. I've seen cars go in under an hour.
i heard somewhere.......that 97 and 98 supra's arnt as good as the 93.5-96's. I heard that toyota used cheap materials..... something like that.....is it true? Im planning to buy a 97 supraTT 6spd from my friend...thankz!
97-98 have a longer shifter(6 speed), also there are some headlight, tail light, and turn signal differences. Interior the '98 comes with a 3-spoke steering wheel. 96-98 have the addition of snow for the traction control.
This is a misconception brought about because of the conversion to OBDII in 1996. Toyota was not able to get the necessary documentation, etc.. in order in time to get the 6-speed certified in 1996.
All 1996 U.S. Supras were therefore automatics. The 6-speeds were re-introduced (same tranny as before) in 1997 and were a standard option until importation to the States was discontinued (in 1998).
another difference is the 97-98 have diferent seats and the dash is a flat charcol grey and the radio is different ( i think it looks blahhh) rims are a little lighter and came in the option of polished insted of chrome and the motor has 2 oxy sensors i belive!
also and the computer has something differnt too! oh and the oil filter was moved some how to make it easier to change the filter !
the 93.5 to 96 are much more easy to work on due to some of the changes and like they said the 96 only came in auto !+ every thing else said above too!
I want to buy a Supra TT very soon and noticed something yesterday. I was at E-Town yesterday at an import event and noticed that some Supras don't have an oil cooler towards the left side. It was located by the intake. Some of the owners removed the left side of the headlights to allow more air to go through and if you look down it looks like an oil cooler. I might be wrong about this, but why didn't they all have this on?
The 95' is probably the best for someone who can spend the money and is aware of what makes the cars stand out. 93'-95' are most definetly the same.. just that for a little more cash you get what some might call a somewhat newer car. The 96' is only auto *cough and the 97-98 are fine but obdII and supra owners are raping eachother on prices on those. I can find anyone a supra for around 22k - 30k+ so if anyone needs help feel free to contact me. but 95 RULES!!!!
Well, in my own hugely biased opinion, the 1995 hardtop TT represents the ultimate MKIV. What a coincidence...that is what I just bought!
Seriously though, I feel the 1995 model is the best because it is the last year of OBD1 (so probably lowest mileage). Cosmetic changes like the newer headlights and taillights can be added if they are a big deal to you. The shifter in the 1993-1995 cars has a shorter throw than the 1997-1998 cars, and the earlier seats have pass thrus in the headrests that can be used for racing harnesses. On the flip side, the OBD2 cars do seem to dyno higher with similar mods than the earlier cars, but not by a lot.
In the end, if you get a MKIV, you'll be doing just fine...but I'd stick with the TT models if you can afford to.
what does the average 6speed in good condition with relatively good miles run for? I am looking to get one hopefully in feburary and a weekend fun toy. I don't want something with super high miles. anyways let me know what you think. i look on autotrader.com and thepartstrader.com, is there anywhere else?
As many of you know I have great appreciation for the Supra especially the MKIV as it has always been one of my dream cars come true. I purchased my MKIV in September of 2006. I wanted to attend my first SILV in it in 2006, a good year for SILV as it was a big attendance. Although it was a rough...
I'm looking at some 16x10.5 with a 6.5" backspacing. I know these are just outside of the average supra spec. But is it worth it to "make it fit" ? Or just way off ?
Thanks in advance guys.

Hey guys, new to the supra world, and I have managed to pick up a 1995 mkiv N/A-T supra. IM keen to make some more power from it and I have been told that upgrading the injectors would be my best bet, but wanted to know what else could be done.
Currently has just over 300hp on an ECU Emanage...
Hey y’all! I posted something similar to this a while back. But I have a Ganador exhaust I picked up for a decent price. Dents knocked the price down but hopefully will be fixed in time as I wanted something rare and unique! But the main question is how do you mount this style exhaust, or where...
