Default I Am Pissed

i really thought i could bring my car back
i thought it will come back kickin

i jus talkd to the guys at my shop
originally i came there to get prices and plan what i want to get done with my car

to those that dunt know
my car has a bad engine
overrevved it, and threw my rods

now the rebuild plan was going to consist of
pistons
crankshaft
rods
then they told if was gonna race my car again i cant go half assed
so might as well get the heads machine, retorqued, and a new headgasket job
with a MHG
rather than jus getting my car running and then going back to get the rest of the job done

what made this more senseless was when they told me
im not gonna get the horses that i want with my n/a
so there will be no point to doing all this work to an engine
that wont give me the horses that i want

and it got worse when they said all this work that i want was easily going to fly around 5000 dollars , and i will still jus have an N/A car

basically they told me im better off finding a turbo car, then start from there
and get all the work that i want done to the turbo

i got a close friend of mine selling me a supra turbo hardtop 87
for 3000 with 102000 miles
i think its a good deal
im gonna test his car at the races tomorow night

and b4 you say anything
yes i know i know, you were right weezy
so yea, sad day for my car, and for me
already put somewhat a lot of work on it already
that jus makes it worst

Just buy a new turbo engine. It ranges from about 1k-2k for a complete JDM one. Still cheaper than buying another Supra and/or rebuilt motor.

the closest 7mgte engine
from me is about 500 miles away
i have went to at least two dozens shops in the area and other cities
have called at least 60 places

they either their prices are jacked up or the engine is busted , or imcomplete
and i cant have a jdm engine in here i dunt have enuff money
to make it run legally, or get it to pass emissions in here

thats why the whole process is going to fly around 5 grand

It's probably further than 500 miles from you but I know where there is a 7m-gte for $450 but it is missing the turbo, not a big loss there cause aftermarket is better anyway. A friend of mine has it and said it is a strong motor. Its in a wrecked 86.5 which means it has the 6m crank unless whoever owned it put in a newer motor. It's from a wrecking yard and does come with a 30 day guarantee, not much but it's better than nothing. Pm me if interested.

see you guys gotta understand
im really a "car person" to the extreme
all the pple close to me tell me that its my personality
and i took the saying "your car is an extension of your personality"
to another level

in person, im a really quiet person
even when im mad, i dunt say anything
i let my car do the talking
if the guy sitting next to me said sumthing i dont like
or decides to piss me off
i wont say anything to him
but i will pull a hard drift to the left
so either he hits his head on sumthing or he gets spitted out of the car
thats jus how i am

when my supra went down, man,,, i was jus mad, and sad at the same time
all i want right now is to get back at racing
plus i cant make any money right now, i dunt have a car

Buy your friends turbo. You will be glad you did. Then if it need rebuilding, you can get the HP you are looking for. I don't understand why you would want to buy a used engine. You are still going to have to go through it and replace all the seals and while you are at it, you maight as well check the bearings, then you maight as well check the cylinders and pistons for wear, then you might as well have the head checked and probably rebuilt.........so, to me you are better off rebuilding what you have. Unless there is a hole in the block.

My daughter has my old 87 N/A Supra. I rebuilt it and each time I drive it, I wish my turbo had that kind of lower end torque. It just really runs out on the upper end. I think more compression and better breathing would turn the N/A into a nice drifting car. Lighten it up and stiffen the suspension up and have fun...... or sell it. That would give you some money to put more power to your new TURBO car!

If you really want to drive your car, you can get a re-ring kit for about 300$. It coems with all bearings, gaskets, and a new set of rings. Did you take your old motor apart yet? If it doesnt need any machine work, thats all you need. Otherwise search around for a new crank and a set of rods, or even just the number of rods you need that are bad, And you have an essentially brand new bottom half, And a good hg. And then just get arp or brand new head bolts and torque them down good, And you should be good for a LOT of miles.
