    Supra stories from Japan

    That makes a lot of sense with those numbers, since a whole word is cut out. I think I was more surprised by the maru bit for 0 rather than zero. I heard zero more often than I expected when I lived in Japan, but I was never talking chassis codes back then. I doubt I even knew that my MR2...

    Guv'na's Tavern

    Good luck! From reading build threads it looks like Faye has gone to Texas, but maybe Bird is still in Portland. Pyro15D was also in Texas last time I checked, but he was a WA area person. Not sure about Grandavi, jdmfreak, or bagwon. All I can say is they are all cool people I never met in...

    The Small Questions Thread

    Wow, I would have never guessed it was really related to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO. Thanks Hybrid!

    The Small Questions Thread

    This is probably more a silly question, but what is the meaning of NATO in the Cygnus X1 parts catalog? I have found some threads here where people have guessed at the meaning, but I have always been curious if there is an accepted meaning. Thanks!

    Recommended replacement heater core?

    I do not actually know if this site is trustworthy, but it says discontinued: https://parts.olathetoyota.com/oem-parts/toyota-heater-core-8710714170 Not to mention the list price was $350 when the Cygnus site EPC data was collected. :oops:

    Recommended replacement heater core?

    Will do, sadly it looks like it will not ship until mid July. Here's hoping it will be earlier!

    Where did everyone go?

    I have to admit I come and go from SM too often. A lot of that came down to the horrible job I had with Microsoft at Turn 10 Studios. It was the most depressing place I have ever worked and made my financial situation too unreliable to ever do much with the Supra. (Though I am lucky I got those...

    Toyota Heritage Parts

    I wonder if it would be worth it to start compiling a list of desired part numbers to send to Toyota? Might do nothing, might show them how much interest there really is!

    Recommended replacement heater core?

    Wow, this is great! I swear I hit this site when searching back in Feb and it was yet another not available, but maybe I missed it. At any rate, thanks so much for the Intel plaaya69! Part ordered! (Total for my area came to $75 with shipping and tax.)

    Recommended replacement heater core?

    I will be replacing my heater core next month and was curious if anyone had recommendations for a replacement? I was hoping to buy the OSC model 98712 back in February, as it seemed the best from the research I had done. (I ordered the "last one" from Rock Auto and what they sent me was not the...

    Full 3" exhaust install

    Wow, this is wonderful information! I was curious though, since the Toyota rubber hanger parts are hard to come by, what do people use when upgrading an exhaust now? Also, I noticed the Cusco hangers on DM, Can those be used in place of of the Toyota donuts? (DM Link...

    Guv'na's Tavern

    Portland used to have a big scene with cool people like Faye and Bird. Something called the Red Door Meet was big IIRC. But I could never be bothered (afford the gas) for a trip to Portland so I never saw anything in person :P

    Guv'na's Tavern

    I still have mine Pyro, and that sweet pic on my phone of your blue one, a nice MK2, and mine from forever ago. I was so close to giving up, as seeing parts go extinct was making me too sad. But the heritage announcement has brought me back out of the woodwork and it is finally time to install...

    Supra stories from Japan

    The Turbo A video was fun to watch! My Japanese is not as good as it should be, but it was enjoyable to hear them talk about how long the doors on the Supra are, and how one must be careful in parking lots. I was also glad that the owner noted that he was not sure if the odd decal on the trunk...

    Old School HKS Intercooler

    Ken's images are wonderful, thanks for posting! It looks like a lot of people want these, and I would like to get in that line as well. Though I doubt enough complete sets exist for us all!

    What did you do to your supra today? Pics

    So I drove to work yet again in the Supra and had the pleasure to follow a 1993 MR2 that appeared to be completely stock. Had the correct wheels, wing, exhaust, and paint. Sadly not a turbo, but it was obviously a well cared for car!

    Ford 80W 90 Differential Fluid & Friction Modifier mixture ratio?

    +1 on the buying it in person. That Ford friction modifier is a godsend. Plus it is always fun to tell the counter person it is for a Toyota Supra. Some are shocked, others are like "We sell more of this to Toyota owners than Ford owners."

    Toyota Heritage Parts

    Wow, I was this close to giving up on the Supra and getting a BRZ due to parts shortages. So glad I didn't! Thanks for posting this wonderful news!

    I swear the tractor was working fine based on that video!
