    How much can a MK3 be 'Shortened'?

    I know it is a strange thread title but stay with me here. I have a tiny garage and I am wondering if I could get my Supra to fit in there. The car currently in their is 178inches long and it JUST fits. A MK3 Supra apparently is 181.9inches long and obviously won't fit, however I was...

    Jaguar XJR/Lexus GS300 (Aristo)/Audi S4 Vs MKIII Supra

    At bit of a long one, but I'd appreciate some input! I thought I'd ask on here as I'm after some comparisons of these particular cars to a modified MK3 Supra. Basically I've been a long time MKIII Supra fan. I fell in love with them when I was about 8 playing the first Gran Turismo game...

    BHG symptoms?

    I know that BHG threads have been done to death on here, I have searched but I'd still like a bit of input for you guys please if possible :). Long story short I bought a 91 NA that someone had been using as a drift car. The car has been used pretty hard, but was sold as being a good runner...

    2JZGE-T vs 1JZGTE?

    This forum is bad for my wallet. I thought that I'd be perfectly happy with the 7MGE that is coming in my 92 track car, and if/when that blew I was happily going to put a 2JZGE as a non turbo engine and be happy with that. Then I logged onto here, read for about 5 minutes and then decided that I...

    Budget big brake kit?

    Hello there Been a long time since posting on here! Due to be back in a MK3 Supra in a month. I've just agreed to buy a 92 NA Drift/Track car complete with coilovers, part cage, buckets, hydro hand brake, that sort of stuff. The only thing I can think of that'll let it down on track...

    Upgraded/Hybird/Steel Wheeled CT12s?

    I've searched by have found surprisingly little info. Planning on replacing the restrictive standard exhaust system on my Soarer with something a little more free flowing, but I do have fears that this upgrade is going to lead to twin failure somewhere down the line so I have started to...

    I'm Back! - Toyota Soarer

    Not sure if anybody remembers me... Anyway, after a year or so of messing around with old French cars (be glad you don't get them over there!) I decided to come back to Toyotas, and this time finally get myself something with a little boost. I played with the idea of another Supra, but without...

    Worth Saving - BHG Sludge

    I thought I'd grab some opinions from the MK3 crowd if I should junk the Did a bit more of my Head Gasket job today. Went to take off the cam covers, removed the oil feed topup pipe and saw this And here's a shot of the shite on the cams The motor has 141k on it, the...

    So err, Who is actually voting for MCcain?

    Something has just hit me while browsing here tonight looking at “Nobama” comments in people’s signatures – It seems that everyone is so caught up in being anti Obama that they’ll end up voting for McCain not because of his politics but rather simply because he is not Obama. It’s a sad state of...

    Another Dumb kid, Another N/A Supra

    With the prospect of my first ever pay check and the chance of actually getting a project rolling, I guess it’s about time to get myself a project thread. I sold my 88 N/A Auto early this year and have regretted the decision ever since. I sold it in order to fund a GA70, but the seller ended up...

    My last bit of denial before the HG Job.

    Right, about a week ago I bought a car that was advertised as having overheating problems – The thermostat had apparently failed and when it was allegedly replaced, the car would over heat even the radiator was filled to the brim with coolant. I went to look at the car, saw masses of mayo on the...

    When did model years change over?

    Not sure if the title makes enough sense, so I'll explain a bit I went to have a look at a Supra that was registered on 11th of January 1991, making it a 1991 car, but I doesn't seem to have any of those 1991 - 1992 goodies that I've heard so much about - It was sitting on blades, the speaker...

    Did the Head Bolt fault affect N/As?

    Here's an easy one for you - Did in the incorrect Torque settings on the head bolts affect just Turbos, or was the fault apparent on both Turbos and Non Turbos? I'm 99.9% sure that it affects all 7M'd cars, but I've had some conflicting infomation from a few guys here across the pond and like...

    AW11 MR2s?

    I've noticed that quite a few former Supra drivers have found themselves now in the drivers seat of a AW11 MR2. Seeing as my hunt for another MK3, isn't going too well, I'm consider going for this as it's awfully local, and cheap :)...

    New job – I think it’s full of win

    Well, I took the advice that was given to me by Supramania members a few months ago and distanced myself from my ‘Live for the moment’ mates and decided to think about the long term. As a direct result of this, I started to apply for apprenticeships in the motor industry, and I’ve just got a...

    I want to go Road Racing!

    And despite being far from the ideal platform, and having a car that is FAR better to the task at hand sitting outside my window right now (an e30 BMW), I’ve adamant that I want to use a MK3. Might I add, I’m not looking to race competitively, just a couple of track days and autotests/Auto X...

    How far can you drive on a BHG?

    I know, I can't believe I just asked that question either :3d_frown:. Same old story, I've fallen in love with another supra, this one to be precise: http://pistonheads.com/sales/614624.htm It's exactly 20 miles from my front door, I have no means of getting it home other than driving it...

    E30s?

    Any E30 fans on here? I'm currently in the dilemma as to what to do with my 92 316i E30 Touring (Notice how I say TOURING :D). I can entire keep it, and throw on some nice suspension and a welded Diff and have a very fun (but increiably slow) daily, or sell this and go for another Supra, and...

    SC (Soarer) Vs MKIV NA Supra?

    My dad is looking for a 'sporty' 2 + 2 coupe to replace his rather crap Saab and we're narrowed the list pretty much down to either a Soarer (either the 1JZ or V8 with air suspension) or J-Spec NA Supra given that they are now dirt cheap (They've began to creep around the $4000usd mark)...

    Another one of those ‘Supra Vs Real Life’ advice threads.

    I know, I hate these type of threads too, but I could really do with some outside opinions right now. I left High School at 16 (different schooling system here + I skipped a grade before anyone gets confused.) with some pretty decent grades, got into the college I wanted and did the Mid way...
