More materials....

and no... that would be blindly increasing the compression ratio. Granting you a very small bump in power and a nice large bump in risk of detonation. If you want it to be reliable, you want to go with the stock HG thickness + whatever was milled off when the head and block were machined. It's not worth the minimal gain, IMHO.

I'm not going to tell you whether you should worry about the thinner HG or not... I don't know what else was done. I'd ask the previous owner if he happens to have a list of all the specs from the rebuild. Mainly you want to know how much material was shaved off the head and how much off the block, then you want to know if it was bored over and the thickness of the head gasket.

What you're referring to is the SuperMonitor. It was an option for pre89 MKIIIs, not available for 89+. I don't know that I'd say they're super rare... They're not common, but they're easy enough to find. I've actually got two or three packed up somewhere. They were very cool for the time and they're an excellent reminder of how far ahead of the curve Toyota was back then.

that one is pretty much up to you. I heard it was difficult to change the color from original. I myself am a purist. meaning no matter what mods I may have or may do to my car. I will keep my stock look or incorporate them the best I can to maintain said stock look. Yes i have a new cd player yes i have a sirius and a gps. but I added them flushly into my dash by removing my ciggerret holder and using the extra space under my cd player. my turbo timer Ill prolly mount that into my glove box once i get it if applicable. my radar detector is attatched to my sun viser. and once I get my engine upgraded a tad I would want to actually mount my new guages into the dash itself. Things that are flashy and covering the inside of the car just look ugly to me. But if all that proves to be outside my skill range then yes ill just have them in plain sight.. bah

i try not to keep things too much in view. i try not to use screws either im all about super stick velcro strips lol. i got a thing that has 3 cigarette lights spots on it that i use so i can have my gps and radar all on at once. used to have one of those horns that has like a butt load of diff sounds like animal or sirens or a PA but that i dont really want in my supra.... other then that. i WISH i had a turbo cuz then id be talkin about gettin a gauge to lol. ... and yeah i kinda like the color i might just get it redone. its nice to be able to see my car in the parking lot cuz hey how many people really have a bright yellow friggin car

my radar detector is hooked directly into my fuse box. I cut the cig adapter off spliced the wires added a fuse and connector (lil two pronged thing to the hot wire. please excuse my overly technical description) plugged the hot directly into an open 15v fuse under my driver side kick pannel and just grounded the other wire to the driver side firewall grounding bolt. and as for my gps and sirius. like i said i removed my ash tray cause I do not smoke in my car. mounted my sirius were that used to be and d/c my cig lighter. installed a 3 pronged one and left it in the cavity.. no wires are showing anywere. looks nice and flush with my dash. out of sight out of mind.. stock professional the way i like it.
