Default Want to learn about the Mkiv Supra?

An excellent starting point is http://www.mkiv.com . I'd suggest you pay special attention to the FAQ and Tech Articles sections. There's also a semi-hidden "tmp" area with a few goodies not linked to anywhere else.

Toyota has also published a great information source for the Mkiv Supra called the NCF (new car features). The '93 NCF for the Mkiv Supra is a picture-and-text description of the features in plain English. An online copy exists here, but I'd encourage you to get your own copy from Toyota (part number 00400-NC096) if you're serious about learning the details of the Mkiv. The NCF very well-written, and really does makes for great bedtime or travel reading!

Another great information source (especially for turbo details) is:
http://www.moreboost.org/
...note that this site isn't up 100% of the time, but when it is up the information there is unique and extremely valuable. In other words, don't get discouraged if the link doesn't work when you click it...just plan on coming back to it at another time.

Lastly, take a look at this pretty cool (imho) site featuring a list of very high horsepower Supras at T04R.com. You'll find configuration details about street-driven, high-horsepower Mkiv Supras.

If you don't find what you're looking for at those sites, or the 'stickied' threads on this forum, please feel free to post any question on this forum (in a new thread), and I'll do my best to get you an answer.

All members: Please feel free to add to this thread with any great links to other information sources for the Mkiv Supra (except for other 'forums', since we know this is the forum that folks should be coming to! )...

Thanks for the articles I'm thinking about importing a '93 JDM Supra this year so I'm trying to learn as much as I can before I do.

Default Where to start

I just bought my dream car a 1994 supra tt. I wonder were to start the mods to have a car thats going to be a speed machine and reliable as well. I am looking for someone to tell me from a to z what to do and what to buy. The car i purchased is stock and has 200k miles on it. I know its a lot but my idea is to rebuild everything from scratch. What should i do and check.

First, the bad news - I'm not sure if you can find 100% of everything you're asking for without doing a lot of research, or paying an experienced customizer some scratch (i.e. $).

Now, the good news: If you have any specific questions, we'll be happy to answer them here. Really! Just start a new thread with the specific question(s). Also, there are a lot of other threads on this forum with related information. With some diligent reading, and some small investments (eg. TSRM) you'll eventually figure all of it out...

P.S. Here's a (stickied!) thread where I did something similar to what you're asking for a fellow forum user. About the only difference is that you'll need to do a lot more maintenance items (which are all found in the TSRM). Hopefully this thread, along with information in the TSRM & owners manual (& NCFs), helps to answer some of your questions, and gives you enough information to begin asking specific questions we can help with.

P.P.S Have you read through all of the other stickied threads?
