Hey,

How many people do we have on here from spokane? I have seen maybe 3 or 4 other mkIII's around town, and maybe 3 mkII's. I went to the spokanesupras davids pizza meet a while back and met a couple people. Just kinda curious because i saw a really nice 89+ red mk3 driving up division the other day.

Yea im down for a meet or cruise too. Maybe not as reckless as last time, going from davids pizza by gonzaga to prospectors in wandermere in like 2 minutes- that was nuts. I seem to remember a certain gold mkii doing a burnout through the intersection of division and foothills..... But yeah the supras in spokane are dying, I have been trying to convince Justin B to buy one again. My friend Mike had a white mkiii, he totaled it. My old roomate brandon sold his and it has sinced been trashed. Last i saw, it was up for sale on craigslist for $500 without a bumper and primered in grey.

My buddy chris bought brandon's old supra! i just finished putting in a new clutch, head gasket, and injectors! Runs like a champ now! The body is straight except for the passenger front end is messed up and needs a paint job. Owner that chris bought it from says he hit a pole and decided to primer the whole thing black except the roof of the car! i did talk to brandon that evening also....before i went with chris to pick up the supra. He told us it was mint when he had it! He even showed us pictures of it! Now that i got it running again, chris's plans are to turn it back into a good looking supra, like when brandon had it. We're down for a supra cruise/meet anytime! Just let us know in advance! Never consider a Supra trash just by looking at a craigslist picture! But as i recall, there wasnt even a picture on craigslist!

sweet! Yeah I work with brandon and he was telling me that you live just down the street from him. Im glad to hear that you guys are putting that supra back to its original glory. If you guys need any help with anything, Ive got quite a bit of experience with supras and also have a lot of spare parts and tools.

vmoua509, do you still have a supra? or did you sell it?

Yeah.... i do live just minutes from him! Thanks... Its always good to have aother person to brainstorm with!

Sad to say I dont have my supra's anymore! I really do miss my 91! The guy i sold it to is willing to sell it back to me for less then what he paid for it! I'm assuming because somebody ran into the qtr panel and its now primered! He also told me that he had a new head and gasket put on! If i were to get it back, the first thing i'd do is retorque the headbolts and give it a good cleaning! Only reason why i sold it was because my fiance hated the mk3 body style!!! I did it to make her happy but instead left me misserable! Haha.... I'll pm you my number and when u get some free time give me a call/text and i'll come by and see what you got for parts. Thanks!

Me and the wife are living in Spokane for the summer but I will definitely grab that from you when I head back down in August. I might have another project or two for you if you can swing it as well.

Yes, I happened to be in that certain gold mkii going sideways up division right as Ruby and Division join. Kind of unnerving. Thanks for that Mike :)

I'll get another one soon. Justin, convince Dan to open up a spot for me and it'll speed up that process ;)

talk about Reviving a dead thread :p

I moved up to Spokane this June, and HOLY MOLLY there are a lot of mark III's up here!

I've spotted one on my way to work every morning 3:30 am parked were Lincoln and Monroe merge heading down south hill. and sometimes I see one heading southbound on division about the same time. All stock from the looks of them.

Saw a rice burner meet up on division a few months ago but no Supras in attendance :/

I've seen a few Mk II's. A red one even tried to race me at a light past the Y on the 395.

So who else is up here? I hope there is passionate supra drivers up here and not just supras with boring owners :p

I would highly suggest doing a complete rebuild. The extra money spent will be well worth it, and you dont have to be afraid to up the boost.

Go with a MHG and ARP studs aswell.

If you need help I am here too. I was exactly where you are about 2 years ago. Now I have a built 7m with a 57-trim ct. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Sometimes it is way too much work to search through the forums for a simple answer when you could ask someone who has already done all the searching.

Where are you taking it for machine work? It makes a difference. Also, since you are this far into the motor, depending on your power goals, you might want to look into ARP hardware, a new oil pump, and possibly some forged pistons.

I dont know where to take the bock to get machined. the head i was gonna take to cylinder head service. as for the rest of the build i am shooting for 400 to 450 hp. i am gonna get the arp head studs and arp main bolt. i plan on getting forged pistons and rods a metal hg. i talked to aaron i think that is his name at drift motion about a turbo set up he said go with the 60-1 kit.

I had all my work done at oneils custom engines, including shortblock assembly. It worked out good because one of his employees has a MK2, so he knew what he was doing when it came to m-motors. I personally used the forged pistons from driftmotion because of the price. If you can afford it/do it yourself, port the head a little. Dont forget to pick up the driftmotion oil supply line, replace the oil squirters, and replace all the hoses that are hard to get to when the motor is in the car.

where is that oneils engines at or do you have a number for them? i havent looked at the pistons that driftmotion supplies. i have just been looking at sunnit racing but all they really got is keith black and those ones are expensive. i will check out the ones from driftmotion. as far as the oil squirters where are those at or how many of them are there? i plan on doing the whole rebuild myself or if that shop has a good price i mite see what they charge to just put the bottom end back together.

Oneil's Custom engines
3915 E Francis Ave # A2, Spokane, WA
(509) 467-8613

The oil squirters are in the block in the bottom of the cylinder bore. there are six, one for each hole. I felt that Oneils pricing was fair, I had them assemble the pistons rods and crank for peace of mind.

For $1100 i had the following done

-bore to .40
-prep block for metal head gasket (mill)
-clean block
-line bore mains for oversized bearings
-install new oil pump bearings/bushings
-fully balance rotating assembling, (crank damper, rods, pistons, crank, flywheel, pressure plate)
-install pistons and set ring gap
-install arp rod bolts
-recondition stock rods

The price sounds like a lot, but once you do it, you never have to worry about it.

I ordered most of my stuff from driftmotion, highly recommend them. Also watch the classified section for deals.

I highly recommend oneils too. Had 4 or 5 motors done through them now.
I however havent had them assemble anything. Just had them machine the head and block to the finish required for a MHG, hone the cylinders, and polish crank, clean journals, hot tank everything.

I do all my own engine assembly tho.

Sorry if it really bothered you that bad. (Im used to it) You and Josh both actually. It has a full cage in it now if it makes you feel better!! :biggrinbo And yes... Its still 100% street legal. The car will be getting painted here real soon, same color of course, just with a nice touch.
