Hello all. Here is my second go around with a JZA70.

I purchased a JZA70 from Japan and its currently being shipped to the states. I should see it in about 2 1/2 weeks. As we all should know, the JZA70 is legal to own in the states because of the federal 25 year law. I have the opportunity to get which ever car I wanted and even though I wanted an FD, my wife and I agreed that I truly wanted my old Supra. I tried to buy my old JZA70 back, but the owner did not wan to sell the car back to me. I ended up finding one in Japan that resembled my old supra (sort of). Here are some pix before it left Japan:







With the anticipation of the car coming, I kinda lost control of my parts buying. Well, so my wife says. haha!!

So here are some parts so far. More parts are on the way. I'm sure ya'll know what the parts are so I won't get into the description of them.








I'm almost sure this is a fake MOMO. it came from Japan, so thats a little weird.




This might work...

ok, I've received 99% of my parts and Ive had to do some major corrosion control.
firs off; here is the upper water neck with the twist in 1/8 npt nipples.



I didn't take pix because the friggen rust was a mess. But, I had to wire wheel the crap out of the manifold, downpipes and turbo. Then I had to coat everything. Here is the end result:








had to take the waste gate apart do to a washer rattling around...

this guy!!


true old school SARD product!


I bought some Downstar bolts. Cause what is offered to the Supra community is strait garbage!!! I had to basically build my own kit, but I've had nothing but success with Frank's company.

AWESOME!!! Looking forward to it going together. I like my T78 on my mk4. Had the newer version with the Vband exhaust housing. I ended up selling it for a 6766 just to have them later in the year have a billet upgrade for it being made. Looking at possibly getting back into a mk3 myself more specifically a JZA70.

Looking forward to seeing more out of your build thread.

I should be receiving the car this weekend. On top of which I bought a cylinder head with, Ferrera oversized intake valves, stock springs. Port matched and polished with BC 264 cams. I’ll post pix when I get the head and car. I’m also gonna document the whole build and registration on my YouTube channel.

here are some pix of the head that was sent to me.

The end number I’m looking for is 600rwhp. But I will need bigger injectors for that. I’m hoping for around 500rwhp with what I have and the head / cams set up. See how it all works out.

Why do you say not to do business with them? Just curious
Because if they would have forwarded me the action sheet then I would have found out it was in an accident. Passenger rear quarter panel. Sent on the lower kick panel of passenger side. Interior issues, parts taken off the car. For some reason the front Toyota emblem is missing. Oh, also, broken exhaust.
These guys should have been strait forward with me. But they chose to keep me in he dark and take their time.

Sorry to hear man! Hope it gets sorted out. Car is too cool regardless but ofcourse those things would like to be known when purchasing!

Sorry, I’m gonna keep the factory mono.
I also uploaded 2 vids on YouTube. Should be under my name, Michael Ganter or 1coolganter. The first video is long as I wasn’t sure how to use the editor. The easiest tag is RHD JZA70.
I’ll post some update pix once it warms up again.
