Not being mean, viscious, or assinine. Just want to know if the forum is serving its purpose for you.

Is there anything you would like to see improved??

Changed??

thanks for clarifying your comment. As for the answer...yes.

As a General Motors Tech, i have learned many things specific to the Supras in this forum, although many of the systems operate under the same principles as any automobile, the supra has been a car that ever since the first celica/supra model came out,has caught my attention like no other car has. specially the turbo model,which now I proudly own.
As far as helping someone, I try to, but many of the comments here are vague.
Aparently, we dont have a member that is a Toyota technician that can suply us with concrete information that we can work with , for example wiring diagrams and or diagnostic procedures. On my part, I would gladly assist anyone with any GM product. So if anyone has any questions just ask and I'll gladly help with diagrams or procedures.

by the way nickeleye..thanks for clarifying.....I felt a bit of hostility from your first coment...

oooooh ooooh

that might be a good improvement in the forum

what about sum sound bytes in here

so comments like those would not be taken the wrong way
you know,

so sarcasms wont be confused with insults
what do you guys think about that


and about the comments being vague
i kinda like it that way
sure it will be nice to have sumbody tell you that he knows what to do
supramania is like that, but way too much traffic and ego flying around
you cant ask anything there without getting jumped on

i like it here, its kinda like having a real conversation with people
at the same level as you, you somewhat the same knowlegde
i like this forum, cuz you have people that are jus starting out, and you relate with
and you got people that have working with cars for years,
it makes that sweet blend in here

whatever it is, to the mods, and admins, do your best to keep that way
(and can you guys giv the soundclip idea a chance , please lol )

I agree I hate getting on forums and everyone telling you your a idiot cause you dont know something or calling you a noob. I think some people are ignorant assholes. But I have yet to find one here. I really like this forum.

Jfunez...Since your a gm tech...Im thinking of getting a 98-02 LS1 fbody one of these days...Do you know of a lot of service or reliability problems with this car? Or what happens to a lot of them that requires fixing. If youve never worked on one, thats probably a good sign...lol. my dad always tells me its expensive to fix japanese cars, And then I look at this T/A and im like holy crap, these are the most expensive parts ever. Doesnt make any sense!

hardly ever do we get any broken down F bodys. the only comon thing would be fuel pumps and seldom transmissions, other than that look for leaky engine oil pans and leaky transmission pans, "any car can have this though".
When you get ready to buy,make sure that its shifting firmly and properly.. that would be my greates concern.other than that, camaros and firbirds w/the 5.7 are very reliable and trouble free cars.
here are all the "TSB" technical service bulletins that there are for that vehicle. If you need any help in the future let me know.
