ya shipping would be total murder, I'll just have to wait and bid my time until something comes up on kijiji again. That mk2 was dark blue metallic, definitely like it better then my light blue metallic.
Any progress on yours at all?

oow nice, you be making updates on your supra thread then?
You have a build thread on the corrolla I could check out?
what tran you running in the corolla?

Sorry for the late reply, comp's graphic card is on the way out and it konks out every ten min.

Little update on my beloved supra.....its parked for the winter. Plates run up on it, plus on the last day of being insured the cords blew out of the side wall on my right front tire. Totally amazed I made it 130 km on it to be honest, don't get how it held, yes my tires are that old!

nice, how much fab work you gotta do to make your 6m/w58 set up fit?

I'm just starting to collect some parts for the summer to do list, sourced some used parts from Vancouver. Got a power steering line coming along with some miscellaneous switch's etc, I'll take a pick of the parts when I get them. I'm paying down the good old credit card to so I can buy some new parts soon as well. Also have a big oil leak I need to find asap, I think its the rear main seal but I wanna double check before I order all my parts.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year to ya!

well the 6m block sits about 4 inches forward from the stock rolla mounting location, BUT the w58 bolted right in, and the 5speed front half shaft fitted right onto the rear half shaft of the corolla. it was a perfect fit.
if i landed the engine farther back, the drive shaft would have needed to be modified, and i would have to move the portioning valve for the front brakes. and all the lines... but as a down side of where it is...it currently is touching the brake master cylinder, and i need to fab up some bars to hold the motor from twisting from torque and tearing off the master brake cylinder pics coming soon.

Some solid engine mounts would help with the movement a good bit, it'd save ya time on having to make a lot of bracing that way......to bad brakes are important, or I'd just say delete that shit! Its a good thing you don't have to make a whole new shaft that stuffs big $$ and annoying. Looking forward to seeing the pic's man, I'll just have to remember to quit being lazy and keep better tabs on the forums.

I've done next to nothing really on my supra, got 2 used cold start injectors from a CS.com member and installed one about a week ago but haven't got around to starting the old girl up yet because the batteries pooched again. Oh and I got 2 new tires for the front, just need to finish up paint on my one rim so I can move on to the miserable 20 hours of hand sanding the next. Been working to much on the talon lately trying to get it straight and back on all 4's. My deal on a hatch fell through so I'm back to square one with that again as well. But good new is my buddy's shop is almost done, they'll be installing the new car lift soon right away so maybe I can coy my way into making them let me use it.
