    Driving issue leads to the question; since OEM replacements are discontinued, who has purchased and is running an aftermarket AFM?

    I've never cleaned or ever replaced mine, but when I think about having a spare one to have as a known working back-up, the aftermarket AFMs seem to be less of a risky purchase than a "good working" used one you can't return from someone online. This one has a 3 year warranty and is an OEM...

    If you had to make a pre-paint job to-do list, what would it entail?

    Alright, so I'm finally considering getting my Supra painted. It's never been repainted before. The paint is almost chalk at this point, so there isn't much left to sand to get down to bare metal. Hopefully that will help with the prep time. But I've never gotten any car painted ever. I...

    I need a favor from those still running the stock IACV on the 7M......

    While your baby is all warmed up, with a screwdriver handle or equivalent, can you tap on your IACV and tell me if it causes any change to the idle, either up or down? I would really appreciate it if a few of you could do that and get back to me. I'm sure you're wondering why this request...

    UPDATED AND EDIT for current discussion which is now EFI output wire and JUNCTION BOX INSIDES!!! WITH PICTURES!!

    I'm pretty sure my Ne pickup coil is shot, but it would be nice have these on-hand anyways. Cardone rebuilds them, so there has to be someone making them.

    For those of us with dashboards that resemble the surface of an ancient Martian landscape, what eBay brand dash cover do you recommend?

    I know I'm a lot more active on here these days, buts that what happens when you get your Supra up and running after 6 years! Dashboard pics upon request lol

    So I bought this beauty of a steering wheel off the FB marketplace, and I've never seen one like it. What can you tell me about it?

    It looks like the typical 89 wheel but it has no cruise control buttons. It's super fuckin clean and I couldn't pass it up. He said he got it from Japan. Do you guys know anything else about this wheel? I've just never seen one like it.

    I take no joy in doing this, but AVOID YotaConnectors.com. Shit service and the dude owes me my harness or money, and he refuses to respond.

    His selection is great, the website looks good, but this dude is a horrible business owner. And I've from other customers on how they have been waiting MONTHS for their shit. I'm almost at a month and a half. I've messaged him a variety of times, being as patient and kind as possible, and...

    Need a quick answer, if possible! Neutral Safety Switch bypass an auto, but manually converted with JDM Auto Turbo ECU

    It's an odd situation, but I have just bypassed the Theft Deterrent ECU, and wanted to make sure the Neutral Safety Switch is properly bypassed as well. The car was an Auto originally, but I converted to manual. I got an turbo pre-89 harness, as mine is an 87. The harness was from a manual...

    Does anyone know the proper signal voltage specs for the CPS at the ECU?

    The CPS passed the bench test with proper gap distances and resistance values, but I'm losing crank signal still and it won't start. It's kind of intermittent as well. All other ignition components have been tested, passed, and even swapped. The CPS or the wiring is the only culprit. I know...

    7MGTE Ignition system functionality breakdown and questions. PLEASE HELP

    I've done so much reading and testing over the last month on my 7M's ignition system to try and diagnose an issue of just random cutting out of the engine, but I can honestly say that I have learned a whole lot. My supra has been down for a couple of months now, and now that the semester is...

    For anyone still using the 7MGTE stock intake manifold, what are the IACV options for maintenance or repair?

    So, before the igniter took a shit on me, the supra was idling odd when she got warmed up. When you shifted gears at low rpm the throttle would hesitate just a short time and then go down, but once the car was fully warmed up, the car would be idling close to 1000-1200 rpm. Way too high. I...

    Street tuning for 7M engine break-in with safc2 questions...

    Hello everyone! Always a pleasure discussing these things you guys and gals. So I'm finally reaching a personal milestone of driving the Supra on more consistent basis. My last post of regarding the engine vacuum and ring seating in the block, and since then vacuum has been perfect and strong...

    First test drive of the fresh rebuild is going down tomorrow...I have some issues and questions!

    I am a tad worried and nervous to take her out on the road for the first time and seat these rings. I am very explanatory so this may look wordy, but I am trying to give you as much detail as possible. My main concerns are that it when I fired it up in August, she fired up and warmed up in the...

    How long did it take you to crank your fresh engine to read oil pressure?

    I am just curious. I remember with my first build it did take a while but don't remember how long. I think I had the manual gauge on it and then reinstalled the electrical gauge for more accuracy. Right now I was just using the electrical gauge but I may switch to the manual reader so I know...

    I just want to remind everyone to invest in a smoke tester...

    It is a beautiful machine that allows you to source vacuum leaks without the motor running. As long as you plug off systems properly, finding those minute vacuum leaks that affect engine performance quickly or over time is a beautiful thing. Even the $80 kit sold on ebay works pretty damn...

    The dreaded coolant heater banjo pipe...LEAVE IT ALONE! Any advice? VIDEO ADDED!!!!

    I think I done messed up. All because I wanted to replace it with a new one I bought from Driftmotion. When the motor was on the stand, I tried to remove it so I could replace it and was immediately regretting it when I saw how difficult it was being just with a few turns. I said screw it...

    Is anyone else being requested to login to access the online tsrm???

    This is the first I've ever been required to login. I'm confused! The site doesn't load on I.E. and is asking me to login on Chrome. Anyone else???

    Anyone try any of the radiator caps with temperature gauges on them?

    Similar to this one? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F141819193221 I was considering the Mishimoto one from driftmotion but the pressure is too high for our cars (19psi). I really love the idea of having a temp gauge under the hood and in the...

    Differences in coolant temp sensors for ecu between pre-89 and post-89 7Ms?

    Right now I have a post-89 connector on my pre-89 GTE harness, with the proper sensor. I'm trying to figure out if I should swap it back to the old setup. Nothing seemed to operate improperly when I ran it this way, but I just wanna know if there are different resistance values that I should...

    Have you ever had pulley alignment issues when replacing the a/c compressor?

    So it's quite odd and pretty unfortunate because I have had this thing for a while now, and it doesn't even fit. I bought this a while ago, a reman off of ebay. I'm almost done building my motor again, and after bolting this up I noticed the pulley on the compressor is about a half inch too...
