Default Want to import a 1990 2.0L GT Twin Turbo

Hi all -- I'm in Canada and I want to import a 1990 2.0L Twin Turbo (77k km on the clock) from Japan. As I've never driven this model, does anyone have any comments on this engine from a performance/durability standpoint? Is it easy to get parts such oil filter, air filter, alternator, etc? Or are they very expensive to replace?

Any comments most welcome!

Just be aware that the 2.0l is the smallest engine offered in a mk3. It's not the fastest and there isn't that much aftermarket for them. Look into a 1jz Supra is your going to import one or just pick up a 7m car locally. Just my .02...

HI
I own a 2.0lt TT they are slower than a 7m or 1Jz, oil filter etc are the same as a 7m or lexus is200 plus with JDM you can get digi Dash folding mirrors etc all the nice little things std cars don't have and most are rust free If you are looking to modify it a 7m ex system fits and look on www.toymods.net and then look of a link to importbitz.They have a few bits like hks single turbo manifolds etc, also they don't blow head gaskets as easy as 7m do, the auto box is the same as a N/A apparently.
