Okay post the stupidest thing you have ever done to your supra. Anything like with mods or simply fixing a problem with duck tape or super glue. Ill go first to give an example of what i mean.

Got a RFL TurboXS Bov and mounted it to where the OEM bypass valve was. Didnt have anything to plug up the OEM intake so i used duck tape to plug it up:biglaugh: Been like that for a year and no problems what so ever lol

Got another one

Driving down the highway from Florida to Texas when i go to fix my rear view mirror it falls off. screw wouldnt go back in so having nothing to work with and at a gas station baught some super glue and glued the damn screw in with the rear view mirror.

Now you have heard mine lets hear yours!

De-greasing the engine and filling the spark plug valleys with water. Ran a little rough afterward.

selling my red supra to a dumb kid who knows nothin about cars, has his mechanic check his car for problems, since the car bites and grinds and everything and him and the mechanic things this

Fonz, the mechanic said the transmission is fine. It just "bites" hard because the guy before you put in a new clutch, nothing ealse is wrong with it besides this minor issue that popped up.
didn't know that when using a new stock clutch causes grinds and stuff:3d_frown:

Busting the AFM mounting bolt and having to use duct tape and a bungie cord to keep the whole assembly from moving.

cooling down the turbo with a garden hose because i was anxious to put on my lipp 3inch turbo elbow, which ended up resulting in sparkplug valley being filled with water and caused the car to stutter

no really choosing the supra over the girl, but just to busy working on the car and didn't call her back over the summer..... its a long story but i blame the supra.

Stupidest thing i've done...... bought bosch spark plugs and installed them, been driving 2000k so far, not realizing that the car has been misfiring this whole time.

Pulling the motor next month, i m sure i will have the stupidest thing coming.......

The stupidest thing ive done t, is buying a supra and losing the love of my life..... for forever...
If she left you over a car, you wasn't the love of her life........she just used it as an excuse. No two soulmates are going to split up because of a car. Just my two cents worth. Hopefully you've moved on and found someone else.

yesterday, replaced my "faulty" HKS BOV..

after suffering with the snap ring for hours, finally got it on (fucked my up thumb in the process, by the way), it sounded the same..

checked the vacuum line, and it was slightly pinched, hahaha...

spent $$$ on a brand new BOV when it was just a small pinch..

replacing the starter on my NA. i cleared a path down to it by taking the entire intake and every single line off that side of the block/head :D then i found out i could put a few extensions together and get to it :(
