Yes, you'd definitely fail any class I thought. My thoughts? Google needs to create an English to English translator.

Okay, I'll start and you finish; Once this is legible we'll discuss the car's problems.

Just give me all options, I'm open for anything.
Wow what a wreck; I now understand why you gave up on trying to fix it after writing it. Although, you did have the option of just throwing it all out and starting over. Well, you have my contribution; Orange = a note, pink = a deletion, red = a suggested correction. My grammar is far from perfect... but it's a start.

Good luck with the language and good luck with your car.

I will say this, your oil change didn't blow the HG; Nut unless you used nothing but Naptha, Seafoam or acid. It was already blown; It just didn't know it yet.




PS: If your posts are easy to read and decipher you're more likely to get and answer and far less likely to get harassed about your penmanship.

If you want a turbo supra, buy a turbo supra that was that way stock from factory.

If you can avoid the year 86.5, your best bet is a 90-92 turbo. The later the better.

If the engine is in that bad of shape and it was swaped from a 7mge then i wouldnt go anywhere near it, no telling what he messed up.

first things imma slang or shortened version of im gonna or as you would prefer i'm going to so yea sorry for the grammar but i guess thats why im not an english major :P and to the other guy haha sorry i forgot the names im bad with names uh thanks for the advice i know thats the truth but i just didnt want to let my 7MGE go to waste since i just rebuilt the thing and it only has 2000 miles but at this rate i think i might just fix up my AE86 and it would end up being cheaper then getting into a new supra

Other than age and that they weren't available with turbo? Not much... Some people have found some odd differences here and there in wiring and certain parts not quite fitting from other years. The early '89 model year was another anomaly where is wasn't uncommon to fine the odd '88 component here and there.

Some people say don't get the first year cars because they may have problems that Toyota didn't find or fix

Not so much the case here. Other than the odd sized part here and there there weren't any problems which the MKIII didn't keep until at least '89 (or for the entire life of the model such as the HG torque spec and tail lamp failure module).
