    Georgia MK3 Supra Meet in April

    I went off more then I should have but feel like we get too much crap if we own a supra and its not on the road. What I mean by a proper supra meet is, an large scale organized event where we can run on Road Atlanta for an hour or run autocross somewhere. Not that this meet is not going to be...

    1990 7mge BHG Repair.

    ac fuse keeps blowing

    My first guess since it runs for 10 mins then blows the fuse would be the winding in the clutch magnet. But it could be other things. Unplug the compressor clutch and see if the fuse still blows after 10 mins. I know this will not load the rest of the circuit but if it still blows you can...

    should i drill threw the water jacket?

    I would imagine it is to slow the coolant flow down so that it does not travel to quickly through the head and is able to stay in the engine long enough exchange the heat from the engine to the coolant, but that is just a guess. Also as someone who works in a shop bioskyline you are the kind of...

    7mge BHG

    Also a commonly overlooked thing is when you are torquing the bolts down you cant just put them in dry, if the guy did this then it was way under spec. I dont remember the specs but all in all a dry bolt loses torque by trying to overcome friction between the threads, if you use oil you have...

    Power steering resevoir

    My friends car has it moved to between the intercooler and radiator, he just reused the turbo bracket and attached it there near the passenger side headlight motor, also the charcoal canister was moved into the bumper behind the fog light if you wanna get that out of there too.

    Targa Top Tool

    I use a snap-on ball end allen key, I have the original tool too but much prefer the ball end allen key much faster. I am thinking of trying out my wifes new small cordless drill, it wont have enough power to break the bolts free but after freeing it would work with the ball end key to take...

    Import Alliance 2011 TN

    My wife and I decided not to go up since it was calling for rain both days and didn't want to make a 6 hour one way trip just to have it canceled or a low turnout, or to have to walk around the show in the rain if it went on. The import alliance here at Atlanta Dragway was canceled due to rain...
