    TEMS Replacement shocks.

    Let us know what they say to you. I tried that as well, they were totally clueless and of zero help. Didn't have any idea what the overseas products were. Didn't even have a contact over there they could direct me to.

    I hope you are right! The visibility in new cars keeps getting worse and worse over the years. Yep, won't have a J VIN. The 1st letter is country of origin. Sounds like it is made at Magna Styer which is in Austra. So the VIN will likely start with - VB. Unless its made in Germany then it...

    "The low, narrow-section dash gives the driver expansive forward visibility, ideal for precisely placing the car in corners. " Really? Low? What about the bulging dash around the instrument cluster and the tacked on screen hovering above the dash in the center? LOL, wow. Unless they are...

    TEMS Replacement shocks.

    Tokico Illumina's used to work, but we lost the US distributor multiple times over the years. So those are no longer available. As SupraDrew stated there are KYB replacements available in Japan. Nengun also lists them for sale. There are multiple places on Yahoo.jp that sells them as well...

    Good article / photos on Jalopnik. https://jalopnik.com/what-we-found-when-we-crawled-under-the-2020-toyota-sup-1831800550 Suprise it's a BMW! - zero people are suprised. I bet one of the first "mods" is to purchase the front strut braces from the Z4 model and install them where they are...

    MKII Supra Built LSD Differential.

    False The LSD carrier design is far superior on the MKIII. Interesting generic blanket statement to make for your first post on the forums.

    Well the interior turned out to be pretty much as expected. Everything BMW with a Toyota steering wheel tacked on. BMW idrive and the shifter, knobs, screen, buttons, everything looks like a BMW. What a strange mash up. So much for the driver focused interior of the past. I am going to coin...

    Only other parts I heard they designed were the ECU programming. Which isn't an actual part, just different software programming. Possibly a LSD in the rear diff that might be different than the Z4. Also waiting for the final product release and the Supra vs Z4 detailed analysis / breakdown...

    Yeah they had good things to say about CCA. Appears to be a small operation but of quality workmanship.

    I will keep trying the phone #, so far no answer. It sounds like is a small operation machine shop doing custom work on an as received basis. I talked with Rocket Racing about CCA Enterprises, they reference that company and phone # as a distributor.

    Funny you mention them. I was going to contact them about it. Or just stop by there, their building says they are in the same town as me...

    Good to note! I would still include the holes for the dowel pins. If the machinist uses the locating dowels or not, the option would be there. Won't hurt anything to have them even if they aren't used.

    Those aren't oil feed holes. Those are what correspond with the locating dowel pins. The oil feed is in the front left side. http://www.supracarparts.com/Projects/cooling2.jpg Another image here from TSRM. http://www.cygnusx1.net/supra/Library/TSRM/MK3/manual.aspx?Section=EM&P=63

    So you are targeting an Al plate? Count me in if you make them. I will buy one.

    - Accurate dowel pin holes to locate it properly. - I would think they are machined very flat on the bottom side in contact with the block. - Depending on the material you use to make it I would use steel inserts for an aluminum plate to spread the clamping load. Similar to how alloy wheels...

    Good idea I am also debating making my own. Let me know if you make one, I will buy from you. Save me the time of machining my own.
