wel you need to remove the headlight to get access to the plugs, :sadance: !! just like when i change my oil, i lift my engine upside down on the cherry picker and turn it upside down.

lol but seriously, no one here takes it to the dealer ship?.... im considering because the service record shows up on the carfax...if you take it to a toyota dealer.

90k service: aka major tune up.
timing belt replacement
water pump (and since your there, you might as well change the front seal.)
serpentein belt replacement
coolant change toyota red perferable (last longer)
transmition fluid change (v160 fluid)
oil change
spark plug change

inspection:
brakes
struts
exhuast flanges (for leaks)

the reason why mkiv guys dont take it to dealerships is because, once you say supra, and turbo in the same sentence. its like bending over and getting fucked with no lube.
labor for myself to do a 90k on a mkiv is 350$. the parts i can help you to get at shop cost to try and save you a little $$
if your seriouse pm me and we can set up a day and time to perform your 90k service.

Sacramento's a fairly good place for dealer service. I generally use Maita Toyota.
I bought my '89 mgte 5-speed from them brand new. They've also serviced my '97tt 6-speed, both of my ex-wives' Camrys and my brother's Camry. In fact, my brother (who lives in Walnut Creek) just had his 90K & timing belt done on his '01 Camry LE at Maita Toyota. His local dealership wanted over $400.00 more for the same service that Maita perfomed. He's a happy Maita camper now!
