Default My 89 Supra

hey! i am new to the site. i've had a crush on the MK3 supra for as long as i can remember and can say that i am proud to own one! it is currently not running at the moment due to a thrown rod. partly the reason of why i picked it up for $150. here are some pics:


the day i brought it home





engine shot


this is what i pulled out of the nice hole in the block

VERY nice! Well, the chassis anyway.

Update:

I found a 7MGTE motor for the supra finally! A guy locally has an 89 that now has a nice 2jz in it. he is getting rid of the COMPLETE motor for only $400 dollars. ARP head studs and MHG already installed! i'm pretty sure that i am the luckiest man alive at this point. needless to say, i almost screamed like a little school girl because i was so happy that i came across this deal! i will keep you all updated as the weeks come!

oh im pretty sure that there is going to be an overabundance of pictures! i'll probably have the motor in my possession within the next two weeks depending on when i get my tax return. the thing that concerns me about the motor is that he said it knocked a little bit before he took it out (which can be a bunch of different things) and how much horsepower he was running on stock internals. he stated that he was running around 500 horsepower before he took out the motor. im thinking a complete tear down is going to be necessary when i get it. other than that, the only things i need now is a good CT-26 and a R154 tranny!
