Oh I see. I am more interested in tryin to find a good mkIII thats all together with a nice body and turbo 5 spd. Seems they are getting harder and harder to find. I might just wait till next year so I can get a nice one rather than pushing it and getting an ok one. I will have more money next year and with the sale of my talon I will have a pretty good chunk of money to buy a nice starter car. That is for a 2jz swap. I love that engine now that my brother is running it in his car wow how sweet is that thing.

I know where a not so straight one that needs some work is.... asking too much but it's been sitting there all winter fs. I bet you could offer him almost nothing and snag it. If not there will be a lot fs this spring probably. I was thinking about selling one of mine but, I probably won't.

Yeah I found one on craigslist listed in milwaukee's parts section. I offered to trade him for my laser rs turbo and he said he will but of course is now not replying to my emails. Oh well I am not in any huge rush as its still winter. Tell me more about the mkIII you know of? what kind of work does it need and what do you mean not straight? Crashed?

It's not crashed, but its in need of a lot of TLC. I think it needs a rebuild... I'll take pictures of it when I get a chance.

Or, if you have this much to spend I'd recommend this guys car:
http://milwaukee.craigslist.org/car/594980314.html
He is a cool guy, I've met him thats my ex-front bumper from my sig. That car is also a pretty good deal, he just painted it last summer. MSG him on here or supraforums, his name is 1jzsupraguy. Or you can just email him on craigslist, might work best.

I almost bought that last summer, then shit came up. Paint on it is pretty clean, needs a little touch up here and there but its a good car.

And 87m gte, I haven't forgotten about the doors and fender, just been real busy, I will at the very least call you this weekend.

Anyone have any flat trim pieces for the doors in 87-88 style like the ones in my for sale thread? I really need some to help my price. Also looking for some bulb fixtures for the rear tail lights. I will trade the other stuff I have like an 89+ front bumper, 89+ turns, and that Supra stitched transmission tunnel piece. :) Thanks.

*Edit* Also the Supra badge for the front nose, and some tail light gaskets in good condition!

Supra of doom, you wouldn't be interested in a trade huh? Oh thats right you owe money on the supra don't you? I am waiting till warmer weather to finish up my car as I have to use body molding glue and it doesn't stick too well in the cold weather. My laser is pretty much perfect but I like the talons better so I was going to convert it to the talon body style. I still got the talon tsi in my garage and its the same color as my laser. This way I don't have to paint it at all. I might just put the laser up for sale and try and recoupe some money out of the talon parts I have. Not sure yet though. But man that supra is pretty clean. I would really like to pick it up but gotta work out something with my current dsm's.

Well, its not exactly ready to sell yet. I haven't even installed the brakes because of the weather... so you have sometime. It might be in even better condition by then, I'm trying to fix everything on the bad list.

But anyway, yeah, can't do trades. I've already been late on my loan before and I just want to get it over with.

Ok guys I don't want to get laughed off the boards or post something that has already been posted but here goes. I am going to eventually buy a mkIII supra and my main reason is I want to swap a 2jz-gte (JDM) engine into it. I hear all about ma70's etc... Can someone please tell me what year supra's ma70's are and what all the other mkIII's are. Also which is the best one to use to do such a swap? I'm not going to try and find a rhd one so thats out of the ?. Thanks much fellow wisconsinites for the help on this subject.

MA70 is any Supra with a 7MGE / 7MGTE. JZA70 is just the 1JZ-GTE MKIII ( Only in Japan and other non-NA ). GA70 was a 2.0 liter twin turbo narrow body Supra ( Only in Japan or other non-NAmerica ).

For a 2JZ swap your best bet is a 89.5-92. Crossmember / Motor mounts are different as well as the wiring on pre-89.5's then JZA70's. You can get adapter brackets from BIC on here though for pre-89's.

I think RHD is out of the ?... but you could change LHD to RHD, and pre 89 supras are better!!!!!! all 2jz's are from japan so "JDM" doesnt make a big difference to the engine, if any difference at all...

there are: MA70, JZA70, and GA70. M is the 7m engine, JZ is the 1JZ(2.5tt),
and G is the 1G(2.0tt) engine(which is rare and exclusive to japan moreso than 1JZ's or 7M's).

Thats awsome guys. You all have been very helpfull. This cold weather is bummin me out because I want to get my dsm finished. Can't do that in this cold weather. They say its suppose to be warmer next weekend though so hopefully I will accomplish something then. Soon as my dsm is finished I am going to sell it to get some dough for a supra. Then I will start saving for the 2jz swap. This has been a dream for quite some time for me so I can't wait. My brother has that swapped quest and since then its been nothing but jealousy. LOL. Thanks once again for all the good info. I knew I could count on fellow Wisconsinites to help out. Thanks much...
Mike

87M-GTE, what color interior is that car your parting ? How are the door panels ( inside ), door lock + plastic around them, and drivers side door handle? I'll try my best to come ASAP.

Ok I may have found a supra I will trade my laser for. Its a 87 supra turbo automatic. The body on this car is almost perfect with just a little bit of bubbles coming through around rear wheel wells. Its not a targa either so no leaks. Only concerns are. Supra doom you told me I need some brackets or something from some BIC to swap a 2jz into the pre 89 supras? What is the cost on these brackets and how much more difficult is it to do the swap on an 87 compared to a 89+? Also is it that hard to swap a r154 5spd trans and clutch pedal set up etc. into a auto car? What do you all need? If I got this car I would have to definitely swap it to a manual. Guess it would probably be done when I did the 2jz swap. The supra is even bright red too. Color I wanted. Oh yeah can you get new seat covers and foam for the mkIII's anywhere? How expensive is it too. This car has grey leather and I guess the front seats are pretty beat and I would most likely want to do the rear seats too. Thanks in advance for the help.

What you need do is find a parts car for all your interior needs. People part out cars all the the time, you could find some nice seats.

Check the vendor section on here. Look for BecauseIcan performance, and go to the website to see prices.. or in the section on here. Also you'd need to do a tad more wiring... something like cutting the interior dash wiring connectors from an 89+ and putting them on your 87 dash harness instead of the old connectors. Other then that its all the same.

auto to 5 speed isn't that hard, but a little time consuming. I don't remember exactly what it consists of.. but search the topic there is tons of info out there. I'm pretty sure its like, trans, pedal assemblies, ds, and like one or 2 more things.

Oh I was thinking of 1JZ... 2JZ is a tad harder, and I forgot the differences so just look it up.

I will have an extra soon perfect for a 2JZ swap. 1990 5 speed targa with no motor or trans. I need to do some work to it like putting it back together. What kind of DSM do you got for trade again?

I have a 91 laser rs turbo 5spd. Mods are as follows:
Full 3" stainless exhaust system turbo back(Thermal r&d)
Hardened upper intercooler piping
Aftermarket BOV I believe greddy type s
Manual boost controller
a-pillar gauges w/ autometer boost and narrowband
I think thats it. But I have another talon tsi that I stripped which has everything including another good 5spd trans. Only thing it doesn't have is an engine. I have it pretty much stripped now.
Here are some pics of the laser.
