    Clutch Release Bearing - Need P/Ns for Plate Washer, Wave Washer and Snap Ring

    The three items on the right of this picture. The dealer requested a VIN number, but, engine isn't the first in there... so I told them 7mgte with r154 trans, and here are the part numbers they sold me: Here are the part numbers they sold me - sorry about upside down, I really edited the...

    ARP main bearing 2-bolt stud kit

    Which two holes get the bolts? I seem to remember one being under the oil pump, but, I can't tell for sure.

    where are old posts by Adjustor?

    Specifically, he had a sticky thread on engine building details. I found it once recently on this new forum format; but, can't seem to successfully search for him or his name. I'm quite sure he was Adjustor with an "o". A link much appreciated. His write-up, among other things, pointed out...

    Never left or back again? Either way...

    This site remains a long-time favorite. The new software is a big improvement and not automatically logging one off after a few minutes of inactivity are two things that I like best about the upgrade But, more importantly than the software, this place has some of the most knowledgeable Supra...

    heater control connection question

    The included photo is a screen shot taken from a video while I am sitting at home. The fact that I have this may make me take an even clearer shot, so perhaps, problem solved. The problem is that I don't understand what I'm trying to do down there... it's on the driver's side at the end of the...

    HKS Downpipe and placement of Wideband O2 sensor

    I am installing an SLC Free B wideband controller which uses a Bosch LSU 4.9 O2 sensor. That sensor has an operating temperature of 740 to 820 with a perfect target being 780. The company (14point7.com) sells a version "C" (although, harder to get, maybe discontinued) which uses a different O2...

    Talk to me about multiplexing please...

    First, I keep reading the terms Multiplex, MUX, batch, wasted spark, semi-sequential and factory ECU. Am I correct in saying these are the same thing? My Supra hasn't run since 2006 and it had a blown head gasket then, so I've never experienced any problem with multiplexing. I have read all the...

    Engine Wiring Harness: add-on or replacement?

    Reading about stand-alone systems in this thread only, and not very far in... having read all the stickies, a few threads by name, and the top recent posts just to see what people are doing, and I have read comments at least twice, if not three times, about "redoing" the engine harness. I am not...

    Re: Raspberry Pi is coming to my Supra

    "Raspberry Pi is coming to my Supra" was a terrible title as people were quick to point out that the Pi was not sufficient for the job. Several people pointed out all the negatives of using such a device for fuel management, and a few pointed out excellent links to research. I distinguished in...

    Is EMS needed if tuning on dyno with wideband o2 sensor?

    If I have 550 injectors, the Lexus V8 AFM and tune on a dyno with a wideband o2 sensor, is a EMS necessary? Reading the "What is fuel cutoff" article seems to indicate not. That post says, 1. Replace your injectors with 550 cc injectors 2. Replace your AFM with one from a Lexus SC400 V8 3...

    Oil Squirters or Nozzles

    I have only found two references on this site to the squirters; but, none of the information I remember being here. If someone would point me to a link, I'd appreciate it very much. My block is the "light" version as described in an IJ post. The holes in the block were filled with the following...

    Clutch Question - What Do I Really Have?

    When I purchased the Supra I went out and bought an engine gasket set, water pump, and clutch cover, plate and bearing from the local imported parts store. The total cost was $254 for the stock Jap replacement pressure place, disk and throw-out bearing.. After deciding to keep and improve the...

    Need Picture of Supra Hood Support and Latch

    I took these four parts off and haven't exactly figured out how to put them back. They've been prepped and painted; but, I haven't found a picture anywhere as to exactly how they fit. The only service manual I have is the online for 89, found here. I've devoured it several times... if...

    What is best use of space after relocating the battery inside the car?

    What is best use of space after relocating the battery inside the car? I was thinking maybe a catch can; but, those takes up little space and may more properly be located closer to the firewall to be higher. Any other ideas as to what to do with the space?

    88 Turbo Project Resumed

    My name is David Russell and I live in San Diego California. I purchased my project car in 2005 and have worked with it off and on until last year when I put it in storage. Signed a new lease today for a 20 x 25 foot garage leased with permission to use for more than "parking or storage"...
