    Fuel filter

    How much rust is on the lines/fittings and surrounding brackets and bolts? I would replace it, especially since you are already doing maintenance / work in that area. But like you said, don't turn it into more work than it's worth unnecessarily.

    Abe's first ma70 1jzgte swap

    Yeah it's a 3" Magnaflow with an extra layer of metal for thermal shielding. Don't remember exactly what model but very similar to this one. https://ls1tech.com/forums/parts-classifieds/1465677-magnaflow-high-flow-catalytic-converter-3-inch.html I welded on my own 2 bolt 3" flanges.

    Abe's first ma70 1jzgte swap

    I'd run a CAT. I ran without one for awhile, couldn't stand the smell all the time. Was awful. Now that I have a CAT again it's very very nice. Also sized large enough where it's not a hindrance or choking any power at the levels I run.

    Figgie's build: Project Rodknox

    Well that's why we have daily drivers :) The Supra sits on stands broken half the year. Well hopefully not, but reality always sets in. :)

    Mk3 ABS Manual Trigger (for bleeding brakes)

    Its a good idea. There is a factory service tool that is designed to do exactly what you have done. It manually activates the ABS pump. I almost bought one a couple years ago when one popped up for sale, but figured I would never use it more than a couple times in my lifetime... :D PN...

    Rear subframe bushing and suspension bushing project.

    Been there. I had to cut all of my control arm Cam bolts. Every single one siezed solid to the bushing. Not fun.

    @Jeff Lange would be a good one to pull in for the driven/drive gear ratios discussion.

    Upgrading and Maintaining

    I could have sworn I posted somewhere all the driven and drive gear combinations needed for each gear ratio... I went through all this before, but now I can't find the record of it. Need to search more...

    Figgie's build: Project Rodknox

    Haha. Now that is cool! Enhancing the tire bead adhesion. Just shows how far we are to pushing vehicle limits these days. Figgie will you be able to run down a ZL1 1LE? :)

    Figgie's build: Project Rodknox

    Does this require 18" and larger wheels? It's so damn gorgeous. Haha! Reminds me of the front brakes on an Audi E-Tron. Calipers are enormous.

    Tacho signal - what does it expect?

    Someone did this with an AEM unit. Their post here. http://www.supramania.com/forum/threads/tacho-igniter-voltage-want-to-get-stock-tach-to-work.229826/#post-2071342 Should be a square wave signal. Nothing really too exciting or special about it as figgie said.

    My long-running Supra build thread

    I see a rear hatch rubber bumper, spark plugs wires spacer, tons of interior screws, coil pack cap nuts. Brake rubber line E clips and spring clips. Lots of random M6 and M8 bolts. :)

    Looks good. Quite rust free! Just dusty and dirty.
