Default Supra is home!

Well 2 plane tickets, and 1000 miles later, I've got my 89 supra in my driveway! I'll have pics up tomorrow after I give her a bath.

Well I got the windows tinted.

It has the original factory radio in it, that's gonna go and a kenwood 2din cd player will go in its place. Small amp and small sub, replace the stock speakers with infinity's. I don't need it loud, but when the tops off I wanna hear it and hear it clearly.

17" or 18" wheels are in its future, no larger. Eibach springs and Tokico Blue struts. Strut tower bars front and rear, thicker sway bars. Single piece drive shaft, lightweight.

When the timing belt gets changed in about 20,000 miles I'll replace the main pully with one of the unorthodox ones or similar lightweight ones. Lightweight flywheel. MHG and head shaved. Head rebuilt. Maybe camgears, not sure if I'll actually need it since I'm going to keep it N/A but it's something I'm thinking on. Less restrictive exhaust, 3" most likely with highflow cats, both of em, to keep it legal. Saw some aftermarket headers on ebay I might pick up too for N/A. Cold air intake. If I do the bottom end, lightweight rods and pistons, .020 bore over. Maybe send the crank in for some custom work. Larger injectors.

Body wise, for now it's staying stock, it looks great to me stock. Later I'll get either a stock 1 piece or stock 3 piece wing off a turbo. If I do a body kit, I was looking at the kaminari kit. Keeps most of the original look that I like.

Thats about it that I can think of.

Don't buy a lightwieght crank pully, the stock one is dampened to absorb vibrations in the engine. A non dampend pulley could cause engine damage.

Ok here's some tint pics, I haven't gotten the "dots" on the top of the hatch or side traingle windows blacked out yet, was told to wait 1 week for the tint to cure before doing this.







I got it tinted at a place in Vancouver, WA. called Solar Eclipse, was 150+tax and 30 for "nofault" protection. 13% HP Gray was the tint used. Can't roll down the windows yet, they told me 24 hours, but I think I'll wait 48 to be safe. And I can't wash em for a week... damn dirty windows...

kwnate - you said don't to the crank pulley and I can understand why after what you said, what about flywheel? Is there anything else I can do to lighten the mass of the rotating parts that I didn't mention that won't harm the engine?

Oh yeah, I'll post some pics of the interior and stuff when I can roll the windows down/take the top off.


On a side note, when I flew down I brought my 6mm hex wrench to take the top off in case it didn't come with the stock wrench. Opened the glove box, had the stock wrench, with plastic caps, in the original toyota bag. Original owners manual + original supplemental owners manual and supplemental toyota manual! Jack bag in the bag was original toyota bag and the jack didn't even look used!

Pretty sure I'm the 2nd owner besides the dealership.
