Thanks everybody for your kind words.

The alu-bushings I measured and my friend made them, also sold some on Supra-forum here in Sweden.

I used the Flaming River Mustang 5.0 quick ratio rack.

Woooooowww. That's a great build thread. Congrats on your efforts to take your mk3 to another level.
Euro Supras rock! LOL. One question though : what rear end/diff will you use? Also what diff gear? 3.7 is the
lowest oem diff on our cars. Maybe you have the rare 3.54 gears.

I did study the installation of the 6 speed Getrag on our mk3 Supras and found out that the only way to get close
to the mk4 Supra turbo manual rear gearing (3.1 export / 3.2 import gearing) is to use if possible :
-V161 Getrag trans (the V161 trans has the first 4 gears longer than the V160),
-3.54 rear diff ring and pinion (the 3.54 is the longest gear we can fit in the mk3 pumpkin),
-Big diameter wheels , rim/tire combo. (like 265-45/17' or 285-35/18' or 295-30/19),
-Built head with cams/springs/retainers etc. for higher revving/redline using a standalone EMS (8000rpm or 8500 should do)
With the above stuff the 1st gear will be very very usefull..like having the stock 3.1 mk4 rear differential !

Re: My black MKIII with 2JZ-GTE and V-160

Regarding the rear-end I have a 3.54 from Mark Williams installed using some part from Nissan Kingcab. Sorry I dont have more info on this than that because I had it made by an rear-end expert here in Sweden. I do have an AEM EMS and 315-35/17 tires so I do think first gear will be ok.

Re: My black MKIII with 2JZ-GTE and V-160

By the 8th picture I was sure this was another Scandinavian build. You guys don't do things in halves, do you?

Very nice looking, going to be a blast to drive... and likely turn heads everywhere it goes, too.

Some advice though - that's where I my oil cooler is, and I'm not happy with it. The thing gets so hot that I'm sure it's having a bad effect on my radiator's ability to cool the engine. I'm going to move mine... I'd rather loose some cooling on the oil than lose cooling on the radiator.

Koyo radiator... soon to be replaced with a PWR, and my oil cooler is from Earls. Pretty similar, though:

Re: My black MKIII with 2JZ-GTE and V-160

GrimJack: I have been thinking of making wings on the front of the oilcooler so that the air has to pass through it what do you think about that?
Ask92: Thank you!

I don't think that will help your engine coolant temps any. It should be great for the oil temps!

I'm thinking about moving my oil cooler to the outside of the frame rails, behind where the foglight goes. If I need more airflow, I'll either fab a duct for it, or more likely, put a small electric fan on it.

What front bumper is that? Or what bumper is it based off of? Thanks!

Amazing work, love the big fat rubber you've chosen for the rear also.

Astounding. I like that your fabricator is using sheetmetal for the widebody; fiberglass crushes very easily. I'm in the process of fixing just such a crushing accident, and was thinking about doing something similar to the metal cage your guy built for reinforcement.

Also, what are the specs on your wheels, width and offset-wise?

Thanks. The metal-skeleton will not remain on the car when finished. The wheels are modified Brock B1. Tires are 315 on the rear and 245 on the fronts.
