    Machine shop quote, could i get a second opinion

    SAME. Just wait until I finish the turbo rebuilding series. That was a trip!! Just finished it up yesterday, and I hope to get the video out sometime in the next couple of weeks. But absolutely, I hear ya - but Danny is known in our area for building the highest quality engines that honestly...

    Machine shop quote, could i get a second opinion

    Would be nice to know why you took it apart and are having it rebuilt.... did you BHG? If you are going MHG, then you will need a super fine finish on the cylinder head. If you are having the cylinder head surfaced, then you most definitely need to have it checked for straightness. Please don't...

    Anyone out there loving their ECUMaster Standalone??

    Oh my gosh, this is awesome to hear! I will definitely check out your build - and I will definitely take your advice on black friday!! And I didn't realize it was even an option to bypass the ignitor and run the coils direct from the ECU. That is fantastic! That in addition to...

    Anyone out there loving their ECUMaster Standalone??

    As the title says, does anyone have any experience with the ECUMaster PNP Standalone that Driftmotion sells? (https://www.driftmotion.com/ECUMaster-PNP-Standalone-ECU-For-7M-GTE-1986-89-p/dm3341.htm) I have found a few posts that are super old (for example, this one from SF...

    Alright, so I just got a new (to me....) AFM today, so I will be able to test it out and either rule it out or not. I am also pretty suspicious of my wiring. I cut back the wire loom and there are many sections where the shielding had broken apart exposing the bare wires. The wires really do not...

    Hey! Does anyone in the area happen to have a known good AFM that they wouldn't mind parting with for an evening??? I need to use one for testing purposes! I think that is my issue. Either that or my Apexi Neo. My AFM tests fine per TSRM, and my car acts differently when AFM is unplugged vs...

    yes yes YES. I was planning on going to SIV this year, but also planning on buying a house around the same time....... hmm.... may skip this year, depending on finances. But I love the caravan idea! I get to roll with 2 Miguels with supras. This is awesome. And Yep, Waco! Gives me a reason to...

    Oh my gosh, awesome. I have never messed around with the AFM screw at all, no. The car once ran fine with it just the way it is, so I guess I assumed it was fine? But I will try that out right now. And.... sorry for the dumb question, but... Vf Trim? Tried to google this before asking to not...

    Oh my gosh, that would be amazing!! I'm out 90 W and Texas Research Parkway. Yes, she is running rough. Slight misfire that I have been chasing down since I got the car, but seems to have just gotten worse. I am also running really lean at idle, (17-18ish) which I think is just a product of...

    Thanks for the welcome you guys! I'm on the far West side. So far West I am outside the loop. And, well, I definitely couldn't afford to live in Portland anymore, (thanks to a huge population increase driving up the prices of everything in the last couple of years) and last year's lack...

I am also new to San Antonio (just moved here from Portland, OR) and would love to make some contacts/meet up with other Supra...

    My first build thread. (beware, picture heavy...)

    Hey there! Sorry for the slow response time, I have to figure out how to get notifications sent to my email or something. Anyways, I would say that the match was on-point, the only thing that I was afraid of was the carpet on the bottom of the door panel, which is why I chose to have that made...

    Concerning low oil pressure

    I know I am going to get flamed for this, but fuck it. 7Ms do have really low oil pressure... its kind of scary when I compare it to my other 2 cars! So, really, I think what you have is just a tired motor that is still operating within specification. What type of oil do you use though...

    Alternator replacement

    I used a shitty NAPA alternator for a year with a sweet audio setup and never had an issue... but if you insist, the driftmotion one is nice. I also recently was given a 1jz alternator. Had a machine shop bore out the pulley from my 7M alternator and it's working nicely for me also.
