    Whats going on guys! Some of you know that I've been looking for a DD for about a year so I can keep miles off the rig and get some maintenance done. Well without further ado!



    Plan for this is strictly a DD until I can get it back into the proper "show" car look and get some major maintenance done on the rig. Once those are done I'll begin to slowly start doing some things.

    THIS WILL BE A VERY SLOW BUILD

    Some quick specs:

    -Chassis has 230,000 miles
    -Motor has less than that, PO had a 1JZ installed but was done poorly over 10 years ago so he threw another 7M-GTE in so around 180,000 miles on that.
    -5-speed turbo
    -Pop up headlights


    Current Mods:

    Engine:

    K&N air intake
    ARP HG studs torqued properly

    Suspension:

    Stock TEMS

    Exterior:

    Stock

    Interior:

    Stock
    Suede Dashmat (installed 7/12/18)
    Clifford 10.5 X (3301x) Alarm
    Aftermarket headunit
    New leather shift boot and e-brake boot (installed 8/17/18)

    Future Needs:

    So far only some minor things need to be done, mostly cosmetic stuff.
    -Needs a new steering wheel cover/steering wheel
    -Needs new floor mats
    -Cruise control needs fixed
    -Driver side seat doesn't move (not a big issue as I fit perfectly in it (so far))


    Future Mods:

    -Paint job (going back and forth between keeping it black or going dark blue)
    -Enkei T6s
    -New tint all around
    -Different exhaust (undecided as I like it's low end sound but don't like the high end)
    -New front bumper
    -LED fog lights

    Way down the road:

    -1JZ or 2JZ engine swap

    Maintenance:

    New hood struts: (6/5/2018 - 229,969)
    Oil change (no filter): (8/4/18 - 231,603)
    AC recharge and swapped to R134: (8/13/18 - 231,871)

    If you have any questions be sure to ask and I'll try my best! Still learning about this thing so bare with my ignorance if you actually know a ton about these, wouldn't mind your input either! :cheers:

    Thanks! Probably too much but too late now. KBB said I got a good deal but I paid $8k for it. But I don't really care now because it's too damn fun to drive :burnrubber:

    I’d keep it honestly unless you could trade for a Supra. I bet that thing is sweet. I’d wouldn’t mind an MR2 except no backseats. Granted neither does mine really but I can cram somebody back there

    Ah gotcha well that changes it.

    Damn that would’ve been sick! My buddy loves Type R’s but he sold his too, wishes he hadn’t. So I don’t plan on selling this as long as I can haha

    Yep, most people don't know what mine is either. Just has TURBO Z on it. Always liked the supras except for one or 2 years it was rounded body with big tail. You have a keeper.

    Miss my DAs. Had a B17 92 GS-R, and a 91 RS back in the day.

    I won't sell my MR2, till I acquire a Supra first. If you are serious, I will PM you when I have it for sale. It has 37K original miles.

    Great car! Looks like it's in pretty good shape. Have you ever owned an MK3 before?

    My first car was an 89 Supra Turbo in white. I blew the HG and had to get rid of it. I always regretted it afterward and eventually bought another. I've had this one since 09. It's a 92 7MGTE Auto w/Sunroof. Currently, on my second 7M and pushing a little coolant when in the boost. For some insane reason, I'm rebuilding a third 7M with forged rods/pistons and hoping to make this one bulletproof. Head is currently at the machine shop so I can finish it up. Going to do an R154 swap when I put the new engine in, too. I've been through hell and back since I've owned this car and it's in much better shape than when I started. I'm glad to help out if you have any questions or need some advice with the car.
