    1990 MA70 4/500PS street build

    Well I really don't know what to do lubrication-wise, that's why I asked for advices :)

    Thank you :) As for the torque plate, I don't know: I tried searching for one on the web but couldn't find any.. From what I've read, it's not really essential to have, but maybe I'll ask a friend if he could make me one with his mill (?) And yes, I've already started the build thread, if you...

    Shimming the bypass spring on the oil pump

    Hi everyone! I'm Luca, from Italy, and this is my 1990 MA70 Supra, 7M-GTE, R154 5speed. It's FULL stock for now, but it's going to be slowly and vastly upgraded from now on! Power-wise, my goal is somewhere between 400 and 500PS. The car now has 200'000km (120'000mi) and makes knocking noises...
