    AEM EMS speed density install

    Hey guys! I'm currently working on a customers Supra (which just so happens to be my old car...) and I'm installing an AEM EMS v1. P/N 1130-031. I'm attempting to hook it up via speed density, but I'm having some issues. The IAT sensor is easy, 2 wires, wired into two pins on the old AFM plug...

    7M head differences

    Going from the Toyota world to the GM world and back to tinkering with my old car, its nice how well documented all the different heads are for an LS type engine. Known good combos, known bad combos, which heads flow the best, which heads have the biggest/smallest chambers blah blah blah.

    What's the latest in suspension tech?

    I had Tein Street? coilovers on my car before I traded it in, and I loved them. Took it to a track day about a month before it went away. Granted it was my first track day, but they seemed to handle the roughness of the track rather well.

    R154 chipped input shaft, is it toast?

    No, you'll need a different crossmember and driveshaft. Also, theres a rather complex throwout bearing/hub/clutch fork system as its a pull type clutch instead of a push type. You should be able to get the clutch hardline to work, if i remember correctly. In any case, theres still quite a few...

    How to: CXRacing Intercooler Install w/out Relocation (EASY WAY)

    This intercooler was one of the, scratch that, THE WORST mod I EVER did to my old Supra. Dual pass intercoolers are a no no, and that's information that I didn't find until years after I fitted one of these piles of garbage. I remember when I dynoed the Supra... It made 280whp and 360 ft lbs of...

    The Fruition of Obsession -- 310,000 mile makeover --

    Take this from a guy who went from a mk3 Supra to a C6... Best.. decision.. of my life. Reliability, performance, fuel economy, its ALL there. And they aren't exactly expensive anymore. I picked up my 2006 3LT 6sp LS2 car for 18k after I traded in the Supra. Made a couple of double payments and...

    My 89 HKS Supra build

    In any case there's a SMOKING deal for a low mile Supra with plenty of mods and zero rust for 5 grand in Nebraska. You can probably even get a warranty on it! Sent from my HTC6525LVW using Tapatalk

    My 89 HKS Supra build

    They're asking less than they bought it for! I dunno why, and I'm not sure I want to figure out why... Sent from my HTC6525LVW using Tapatalk

    My 89 HKS Supra build

    Fwiw I still drive past the lot where the Supra is sitting and just stare at the old girl. It pisses me off though. There was hardly a swirl in the paint, and they must have tried buffing it. Swirls EVERYWHERE Sent from my HTC6525LVW using Tapatalk

    My 89 HKS Supra build

    Well guys, not sure if anyone is even following this thread anymore but it's definitely the end of an era. I've been in the Supra game since I was 15 years old. While you guys have given me a home away from home, it's time for me to move on. I'll still lurk around on here I'm sure, but now that...

    What did you do to your supra today? Pics

    Its for sale, you can buy it! Cleanest one in the Midwest. In the meantime though, I'll enjoy more comfortable seats, more power, better fuel economy and (arguably) better looks. Not saying by any means that the Supra is a bad car. I love it. I always will. I just needed to turn a page in my...

    It's not the crank being out of balance. It's the explosions that are forcing it to spin that cause the inherent vibrations. Sent from my HTC6525LVW using Tapatalk
