5/28/11 marked my 15th yr. of owning my 87 T. I'm very proud of that - she's an amazing car, and through her, I've met peeps who have gone on to become best friends from all over the continent. Friends from SOGI, SONIC, Supraforums, & Supramania. The car and the owners are awesome. Tons of fond memories - all through our shared love and passion for the Supra. So I'll have to buy her something nice for 15 yrs. of great automotive fun.

Yesterday: i didn't do as much as I wanted to..
Removed the engine harness without removing the intake manifolds. Putting the replacement on is going to be fun! Woo!....
Went to two pick-a-parts but there were no mkiii's with engines or transmissions..
Took a bunch of pics. Checked to see whether or not the replacement engine had arp studs or not, it does! Noticed the rear main seal was barely wet with oil at the bottom of the seal...

Just did this (except the back glass) a few weeks ago... so much nicer.... Gotta get some warmer weather to attempt the backglass to make it go a little faster...

Did you do the whole glass cleaner trash bag trick? The owner before me did tint on top of tint in the back... the first layer came of in two pieces, but left awesome glue everywhere, so I think I am going to have to hit it again..

my buddy uses a steam cleaner. steam the tint, peel it off. keep doing that til it's gone. for the adhesive residue, steam it and scrape it off

Today I converted my GTE to GE-T (GE electronics). My GTE harness is bad, I'm going to repair it. I need to drive my car. Only things left are find a 1-wire O2 sensor, get a starter (bought, haven't received yet), and pop the c-clip off that holds the wastegate actuator arm to the wastegate flapper

I've watched a few of the how to's on you tube, but they are all on cars with nice looking tint, not the 10 year old barney looking, petrified crap....
The doors were easy, the quarters were a pain just because of the contorting you have to do... I just gotta hunker down and take my time.... or find a meth addict and grab my gun while I watch... lol

From the y-pipes to the stock hardlines.
Cost, almost nothing. And they are right infront of the huge fan so high trans temps are a thing of the past.
Thought about a filter too but not sure how much resistance the trans can handle.

After almost 3yrs. car is running, just need to figure out where to move the PS reservoir to so that my intake won't hit it and then get my Tec tuned. Put the dash back together today.

Drove it to work today after the Alignment tech at Tires Plus yesterday, broke my exhaust in half pulling it onto the alignment rack. STill not fixed so drive to work was beast/annoying.

Why did you take the elbow off the turbo? You don't think taking off three accessable 14 nuts is easier than the one bolt?

The whole back side was basically bad...Had a crack, a ton of play in the exhaust impeller?...basically junk...
