  1. You probably can't get one in your budget, but an R154 is the obvious choice, as that was what the Supra manual turbo came with from the factory, - you'd could fit it with factory parts! They are tough as nails (originally came from a coach.. Toyota Coaster). Failing that, you might have better luck finding a W58 (Supra N/A, but later used in the JXA-80 N/A and a bit stronger). Most of the Tuned Lexus V8 people are running BMW Getrag 6 Speeds these days, they are a lot more common than the "proper" Toyota part, a similar shape, strong and cheap. Obviously you'll require fab work.
  2. I have a Toytec Boss kit on mine. Shipping wasn't cheap, but they were lovely to deal with. Link The kit has evolved slightly, but it was FAR better than the UK sourced Monroe lift kit. I went with the optional SPC adjustable upper arms, and Bilstein/OME rear dampers and springs. A Diff drop kit is mandatory. - I'd also recommend 1.5" longer sway bar drop links, and an adjustable panhard bar and suitable drop bracket if you re doing it properly. I also run a 2" body lift.
  3. It means whoever did it didn't reset the warning light! Can't speak for the newer stuff, but on the old Surfs you had to take the instrument cluster out and swap a screw over. I'd imagine it'll be done by computer now.
  4. Toyota Outsource all their interesting cars now, started with the '86 basically being a Subaru! Look out for an MX5 Based one too. At least It has a Straight 6, and will drive well! and at least Toyota will be selling interesting cars again! This is good news! The brand lacked excitement for too long.
  5. Happy Birthday Karma Supra!

  6. Hi Folks, Is anyone breaking a Prado? 96- vintage. I'm after a complete non E-Locking rear axle for my surf, complete with disk brakes. I've been offered a UK Prado one, with the E-locker for £250, but would rather have a "regular" diff so I can add an LSD. Thanks, Charlie.
  7. 2JZ-GE and 2JZ-GTE. "Really strong takes 600hp" Careful with that. I've seen my fair share fail at stock power. They are not getting any newer, and as the cars get cheaper and fall into "tighter hands" many are suffering improper maintenance.
  8. You can always convert an auto to manual, the hardest thing to get is a decent shell.
  9. I just stumbled across this thread looking for wiring diagrams for my project! (yes I've still not found them all....) I wonder if it ever got fixed in the end?
  10. Never mind, I just bought a whole fuel pump off ebay...
  11. Do you still have any bits off this?
  12. Wierdly, I need a bit for fitting my Lexus V8 into my Hilux.... and it looks like my most likely way of getting it is from a Corolla! I'm pretty sure this part exists in all petrol EFi models from at least 92 - 99 from my reading, and it is small and obsucre... so here goes. I'm after the small two pin pug, (and enough cable to splice, a couple of inches) that runs between the in tank fuel pump and the 5 pin connector on te inside of the fuel tank cover. Obviously my Diesel hilux had no fuel pump, but wierdly has that Grey 5 pin plug that should make fitting one easy (but only uses three pins for fuel level), I have the pump, just want to use the factory wiring... Can anyone help please? Cheers Charlie.
