Exclamation i got a question about a motor

ok, i have got a supra motor that isn't turbo and is out of the car. it has been sitting in a garage on a concrete floor and i don't know what year of supra it came out of but i know it was a supra. i was going to go a project with it but i need to know something. can i look on the motor and find out what year it is so i get the right computer to run it or what do i do? some help would be great. thanks, rusty.

The 10th digit of the VIN is the year. The VIN is located on the right side of the block, next to the oil filter.

It is possible to use the engine in any year MK3, but some of the sensors may need to be for the year of the body/wire harness.

Question Just A Question!!

Just a question here....wouldn't the "7M-GTE" kinda give it away?...or whatever number is on there? Unless the cam gear cover is gone.

Our Supra’s, which art in the driveway,
Hollowed be thy power, thy mods are great, thy speed endless,
On the road or at the track. Give us this day free of cops,
And forgive us our impound charges, as we forgive those who are slow.
And lead us not into speed traps, and deliver us from the interceptors,
For thine is our car, the power, and the glory…forever and ever….amen.

yes well thank you cause i am new to the supra thing and i am wanting to do something really good with the motor. i know this might sound a little wierd but i am going to try to get the rest of a drive train put together with this motor and put it all in a 80's model toyota pick up truck. i am wanting to do something different and the items and time are here. so if i ever find a truck worthy of the project. i will start. but thanks. rusty
