Ok so here i go. my name is AJ and I just turned 21 in February. My first supra was a 90 7mgte i traded a transam with a blown tranny for. built it up with a 60-1 Turbonetics turbo, Delphi 880 injectors, lexus afm and few other mods. was in the process of rebuilding and restoring it and ran out of time and money. Had to sell it.:( But i recently just purchased another 90 factory 7mgte, with a blown HG and half torn apart. But when i bought it, it came with alot of the 2jz swap parts. Its burgandy with the rare, factory optioned tan / brown leather. factory 7mgte r154 car. 154,000 miles. I think i have enough to start by build thread for you guys. This is my first 2JZ swap so if you have any input Please dont be scared to say it out loud! :1zhelp:

Here are the pics from on my way home with it- IMG_2803.jpg

Re: Dream's DO come true -*** 90 burgandy MKIII 2JZ swap

sorry guys i cant get my computer to upload pics right now, i dont know why. ill figure it out! but the one pic is of her coming home. But anyway i got the 7m pulled today, the AC condenser and piping pulled also. Got my MKIV wheels on with half inch wheel spacers on the front. My intake manifold, water necks and valve covers of the 2jz are going to powder coat this week. Flat black is what they will be. but like i said i will try to post the pics tomorrow again! :aigo:

That's an odd interior color combinatinos. AFAIK burgundy comes with Gray, at least in the 90+ years. Good find still and good luck with the swap!

Nice to see that you got another mk3, but kinda like akito said the 90 didn't come with a tan/brown interior. It was probably swapped out of an earlier mk3 supra. If it is clean though then it is still a good find and doesn't matter. I'm looking forward to more pictures!

It is possible to get burgundy with tan tho it is rare. Buddy has a 90 or 92 with burgundy and tan. Tan is a rare color option all together.

Re: Dream's DO come true -*** 90 burgandy MKIII 2JZ swap

Thanks guys on the good luck, I still can't get my pictures to upload, keeps saying supramania was unable to upload. But I got the 1jz bell housing on the R154 today, that's about it, and deciding if I want to run an AEM standalone or not. Probably going to for what I'm aiming for. Sorry I can't get pics posted yet but when I'm able to I have them to post. Admin is trying to figure it out. But yea it is a Rare factory option to get (brown/tan interior). But the guy I bought it from was the second owner and he was told it was ordered that way. I have to check the VIN and decode it to make sure

Hmm. Looking at the Toyota Supra brochure for 1990 doesn't show that you could get a brown interior at all, but I guess it could have been special ordered by a dealer or something maybe. I would suggest using photobucket as well.

Re: Dream's DO come true -*** 90 burgandy MKIII 2JZ swap

I apologize if the pictures arent the best! they were taken with my Iphone. Dont have a camera..but i was finally was able to get my pics up! Used photobucket like you guys said. Here is coming home and the 7m that was in it when i bought it. Before and after. And YES she is dirty been to cold to wash. But this week she will get a bath supposed to be 50 degrees!






and here is with the MKIV wheels and the 1/2in front wheel spacers.


and then here is the interior of the car. the driver side is a little torn up but its a nice advantage to work at an upholstery shop! :naughty:






but here is just a few random pics of it! so everyone can see what im working with :icon_bigg

Dibs on the 7M! Good find is the understatement of the century. There is a table loaded with parts, including a brand new harness and sick AF intercooler kit! Those alone are close to what he paid for all this. I'm very jealous, and (feel for the seller) excited to get this thing going! I would like to see the stock twins give a go, but I know better than that. :) It's a nice shell, and just an amazing find!

IF your center console is shallow it is indeed genuine 89+ tan.

Looks pretty nice.

Yesterday I Finally got the harmonic balencer bolt out. 1/2 impact with 1300ftlbs of torque didn't pull it out so we went to a 3/4impact with 1900ftlbs of torque and that took it out without breaking it off. Thank god! Making progress will post pics soon!

And by 3/4 and 1900 ft/lbs, he means that he called Optimus Prime over. Congratulations man, it's all downhill from here...lol!

Sorry i havent posted much lately! ive been really busy. i reorganized me garage so i could actually find everything and know where its all at. ha. i replaced the hydrolic tensioner,water pump, everything up front besides the oil pump, which i will do this winter. My buddy is letting my borrow my delphi 880's for awhile till he decides to go big single. and i got my fuel rail in. thats about it.. its moving kinda slow right now but starting a new job in a couple weeks and things will pick up faster because more money! :D thanks for everyone that is watching this build!

okay i know its going slow and i havent updated it to much in last few weeks. but i cleaned up the engine bay and put more of my motor together. also figured out how to mount my 2jz ecu under the dash in the same spot as the 7m ecu was. ordered a few parts here and there. just have been so busy lately. started a new job but more money for my toys :)







also started tearing apart the back brakes and checking things over. have rear slotted brake rotors but when i went to put them on the rotors are to small. the inside wont fit over the emergency brakes so looks like im going to have to send them back and order different ones. AFTER they said they would fit. :/
