Blue '87 turbo in rural Elbert County. Running strong at the moment. Anybody know where to get German Castrol 0w-30 in the Denver/Aurora/Parker/Castlerock area?

I'm in Lakewood. I'll be back out on the road in about 2-3 weeks. My crank is getting polished and sized for new clevite77 bearings. Since it's apart, i'm also replacing the mains, oil squirters, oil pump, rehoning, and having Crower rods put in for my future plans of 600rwhp.

I ventured out to Federal and Alameda one sunday about two months ago and was disappointed to not see one Supra. I've Seen one white pre 89 in Lakewood which I exchanged thumbs up with.

I have the 8-blade aka pre-1998.5 hx35. Full boost is around mid-low 3,000rpm with my exhaust wrapped hks long runner manifold and turbo blanket. I love it for the decent power/spool and especially since I bought it used with no shaft play for $200 cash. I'm running an external 40mm wastegate and 3" v-band downpipe/exhaust with it. Should you need to rebuild any of the HX series, kits are only $40 and are easy to do yourself although these puppies have lasted 300,000 miles on diesels pushing 35psi before. Thus, they're pretty reliable.

I moved from Ohio back in July. Mkiii's are definitely more "common" if you use the term loosely as well as other hot rods and restored/built classics. I drooled over a baby blue with white stripes '69 Camaro SS a person i sold my amp to owned before I moved out.

Yo i am in colorado springs. Car is 89 dark blue not on he road much due to weather and still learning this animal. Does run but with the aftermarket bov and no tuner has some issues. not to mention having a gnarly vibration taking off in first, bad pilot bearing i am thinking. Anyways anyone in the area that wants to meet up for a drink and maybe give me some supra advice hit me up

best supra advice is to keep an eye on your temp gauge and change your oil before you rk. lol if you forget those two steps, ill have better advice for an engine rebuild...lol

yeah paint and interior are my last objectives on this car right now i am trying to make sure she is all good to go. runs good now just that vibration it has. Just bought a house so my plans are gonna be way budgeted. But either way i am down for the meet even if i cant bring my car ill ride my bike there. when and where will it be?

BTW if any of you guys here in co have any old parts from swaps or upgrades that you are willing to part with let me know. the main thing i am looking for is downpipe stock or aftermarket. pm me

My baby has been without an engine since October. I'm really getting beyond aggravated with the shop it's at just for new bearings, Crower rods, and an engine balance taking this damn long.

i really dont know what junk yard its at. all they told me is that progressives claim service is up there and thats where they took it. i dunno exactly where my car is at. :( as for the oil, i heard our systems are a high volume, low pressure system. i just checked my oil everyweek, and i ran the hell outa mine, and it still look abuse all the way. but yeah +1 about the temp and oil. ive been through a bhg, and a rod through the oil pan.

threw a rod 9 months after i got the car. previous owner had it rebuild and whomever did, put it back together like shit.

2 years later, bhg. it was this past april that it blew. easter to be exact. ran like a champ since than.

but any way, got a new vehicle, a 94 yota pick up. when i get money back from my medical hopefully in april this year, ill be able to buy another supra, and possibly a jdm 7mgte, and throw that in the truck. its possible and very awesome might i add...
