Hey guys, first post here in a while so I may have missed the answer to my question somewhere in conversation.

I need to get my block fully prepped and ready for a MHG. I am yet to hear of a reputable and experienced machine shop for the 7M. If someone has found somewhere that has done a great job on theirs, I would love to get their info.

Big HP guys please chime in here. My supras are my toys and I dont plan on holding back so this needs to be done right the first time.

He's currently building my 2jzna-t

does anyone know anyone that has an evap smoker, ive been fighting a vacuum/boost leak for the past 3 months and im almost at a breaking point.

EDIT: ok evap smoker is the wrong kind, so avoiding technicalities i need a shop/person with a smoker to find a vacuum/boost leak

how many people have aftermarket cams in their 7m's? im just curious about the power increases, vacuum, drivability and all that fun stuff. im contemplating building up a new engine to around 500 hp and any personal experiences would greatly help.

Ive got a set of TED 268's with springs and retainers for sale (in co springs) Never got to put them in my 7m as I decided to do a 2j swap, but the previous owner told me they brought about a 500 rpm quicker spool on a gt47 on an 800+hp 7m. I'd bet they be awesome on a smaller turbo setup.

You can make 500rwhp with stock cams with the right turbo but the 7M head doesn't breathe worth a shit. Compared to the 2JZ, the 7M breathes 20% less cfm on a flow bench test. Thus, go with a set of cams with more lift and duration if you want to unlock more potential. The 7M head will also benefit from a radial port and reaming the valve "tunnel" larger. Also, with higher lift cams, you need stiffer valve springs to avoid float.

i would love to get those but i just don't have the money at the moment. just trying to do research to find out what i want to do and how im going to do it.

oh and on a side note i realized why my engine isn't running right after a compression test. cyl 1- 55psi, cyl 2- 135psi, cyl 3-150psi, cyl 4- 130psi, cyl 5- 140psi, cyl 6- 135psi all took at least 6-8 cycles to max out. and i was expecting them all to be around 150 to 160 because of how many times the head and block have been decked.... which is also why im just building a new engine lol.

ohhhh also what stand alone ems have you used and which ones do you recommend....preferably ones that i can still get lol.

Didn't you have your motor rebuilt by a shop a couple years ago?

Names' Dom.
I'm thinking it'll be ready a week or 2 before but sadly that means I'll still be breaking the motor in :(
If I can get some extra money from selling some things (cams, 7m, 39" tires, csb 350, and k5 blazer shell) I'll be able to finish sooner, but the goal of my build has been to be done in time for the Castle Rock meet.

Also anyone looking for a shop to do ANY work on their car call BLACK LABEL PERFORMANCE in the springs. Mike knows supra's (pretty much any vehicle, but especially toyotas) like the back of his hand. Only shop I trust my keys to.

Does anyone know of any built long blocks for sale locally here in CO? Pretty much only have to be metal head gasket, ARP's, and forged pistons. Let me know if there is one around and how much.

I'll still be on the twins. I got a great deal on a set of Tein RA coilovers with an EDFC and also was the last guy for Sethron71's big brake kit. My budget for going single wasn't as high as I wanted so I upgraded important areas.

No forged pistons but my 7m will be for sale within about a month (minus sensors and harness) and it has arp studs clevite bearings and a metal head gasket.

Right on mike, big brakes are important, I should get mine upgraded before this motor goes in....but I want the power ASAP lol

Any of you guys in CO have a spare CPS I could borrow for a day to compare to mine. The car started running like shit out of nowhere one day.
The only old/ used part on the car is an old cps I bought off the forum and I think it took a shit. I finally got a stiffer wastegate spring and this is
my only hold up to get the car back to the dyno and see what it will do on 25+ psi. I'll give a deposit even, i just want to compare to a known
good sensor, if it fixes it I'll buy a new one. Just sucks that they are like $500+ new. When/where is this Toyota meet?

Not sure how mike feels about piggybacks but I'm sure if it has four wheels and a motor mike can tune it.

Give them a call and see

if anyone who lives in Denver or around the area wants a bunch of stock MK3 parts Im cleaning out the garage and have a ton of blue and maroon interior parts and a few stock engine parts. Good news is that it is free but the catch is you have to come take it all. PM me for my cell number if you are interested. Want it gone today though if possible.

Also have a Cressida gray dash in perfect condition and both front fenders in gray that don't have rust that I remember but would need paint.

Was that black GTE on the end yours? I overheard a random person see the 7M-GE timing cover and respond "Oh, it's non-turbo" which made me laugh.
That black one was me. That's funny about the non turbo comment. Nevermind the turbo and ic piping, lol.

I'm pretty sure I work with the person with the white mk3 with black wheels and rsr exhaust. Anyone else work at micro motion?

I was hoping for more mk3s. There were only 4 or 5 of us. And then dozens of mr2s Haha.

I do in fact work at Micro Motion and own the white one. You can find me on the second floor engineering department by Longs Peak. I heard there was another MKIII owner at MMI from a few people but have never seen your car at work. There were 5 of us total. I'm friends with the other 3 that showed up.

Haha, cool. I'm the repair engineer in man 2. I'm parked in the man 2 lot if I take the supra to work, but I've only driven it a dozen times or so to work in 2012.

Should start driving it more regularily soon. Hopefully we'll see each other around.

Figured I would try one more time before I throw it out but I would rather it go to another supra owner. I have a ton of blue and burgundy interior parts sitting in my garage I need to get rid of. Mostly plastic rear panels but a little of everything laying around. Free to a good home. If you are interested in some other stuff I will make you a killer deal on it all. Private message me your number and I'll give you a call of you are interested.

Hey guys, still loking for a built motor for my 89. I am considering trading my motorcycle for a fully built block and turbo setup. Let me know if you or anyone you know is looking to get rid of their setup. The bike is an 04 zx6rr valued at apprx. $3600 so I am looking for a near equal trade.

If you're planning on spending/trading around $3600, you might as well swap in a JDM 2JZ.

I thought about it. I think i'd rather a 7m big turbo setup than a BPU 2jz for the price. However, I am willing to hear offers for a 2jz swap if someone has one. Heres a pic of the bike in case someones interested...
