Thumbs up

I would love more pics of the engine, ie. different angles and close ups. I'm curious as to the turbo, IC, and IC piping set up. The first thing I notice is that instead of coil pacs, you have a distributor which I find peculiar for a turbo. It leads me to think that this is not the stock set up. I would check the VIN. There are a few ways of doing that, but there is only one free way that I know of. Find an Asst. Manager or Service Writer at a Toyota dealership and they can pull up the VIN specific info. I got a Asst Sales Manager to pull up the original Sales sheet, (The one you see on windows of new cars, only a print out), of my Supra.

This is all my personal opinion, but since you asked...

The wheels look like crap. Can't really say if it's the style or the black color, but they really detract from the look of the car.

Never cared for the that style of seat. If you're going for a pure-performance setup it would be a different situation, but with the speaker boxes and other stuff that's obviously not what you're going for.

ABS has been pulled. Why? It's a safety feature.

And you've got jury-rigged wiring strung around in the engine compartment. Sloppy.

As I said, just my 2 cents. If you're happy with it, that's what matters.

how could you tell the ABS was pulled?
as for the wiring, the previous owner hooked up fog lights and he did a sloppy job. i agree
i'm either gonna make it look better or just get rid of the fog lights
there is also a wire for the subs
and i love my rims. lol. but i'm thinking of painting my car black
might suit it better
i'm aware that the car still needs a lot of work but i just wanted to see what people thought so far
thanks for the feedback
the original sales sheet may be hard to find as i am pretty sure this car was privately imported from Japan
i am going to take more pics and post them very soon though

ABS was an option. Your's probably didn't come with it. The 2.0gt is the economy model in japan. I'm not sure but I think they all came with a narrow body version of the fenders.

The cars looks to be in good shape, but it needs a ton of clean up work and upgrading. Lose the wing and speakers.

so i've made a few changes
still got the wing but I'm getting rid of the subs because it's like having another person in the car
I bought new gold rims that work alot better with the car and I cleanded my engine bay out. Took some time to get rid of 23 years of built up grime
I will try to post some pictures soon. She's lookin alot better. lol
I am hoping for a 2jz swap in the future. This 2.0L just doesn't have the power I need

I agree with KWNATE, get rid of that wing.

wing is def. a bit of an eye sore for me. can't imagine the drag it puts on the car cruising down the highway. First thing i noticed(apart from the sweet spoiler) was the autotragic transmission.. So if you do swap in a 2jz maybe grab a manual gear box with it. you'll like it!

I am definitely planning on throwing a manual in even though the difference between an auto 2jz and a manual 2jz is about $4000. It's insane
I would have never put the wing there myself but I do think it works well with the car and I have never seen another Supra with a wing like it
I don't want it to look like every other Supra out there and I don't know if I'll ever get rid of it. The other downside is that it makes it much easier to throw me into the "ricer" category which is something I never want to be part of
The kit is a Bomex body kit and I'm not sure how much it was lowered as that was done before I bought it
At this point I'm satisfied with the appearance of my car and I just want to focus on performance
I really should get some pics up to show you guys how much better it looks
