    Default S.A. supras metro (gay) blue 87 2jz build

    This Is a Craigslist find I picked it up for $800 with no engine, wire harness, or ecu. I initially tried to get someone to buy it but no one wanted to. So I bought it even though I already had two at home(sisters). I really need to stay off cl! I have owned four supras in the last six years, and I'm hoping this will be my last. Time to do it right!

    My last car was a 89 with a 1j. The engine craped out on my so I was left with a car with no engine and a great interior. So since I like the way the metro blue 87 looked on the outside but not the blue interior with the checkered seats. I decided to get the best of both worlds, and put the grey interior in my gay blue car. The colors go well together, I don't know why Toyota didn't do it. I guess the had a lot of ugly blue material to get rid of.

    I plan on building the car up to 600hp in two steps. First is getting the engine in and running then stage two will be cams, fuel system, and stand alone. I also have a lot of parts that I need for my build from my 1j. That should make things easier for me.

    Nope, I just don't have any pics of the grey interior. I'll get some this weekend, I'm gonna pull it out of the garage put those wheels on and take pics of the interior.

    Looks like a nice engine from the outside. Hopefully the inside is just as clean. Cant wait to see more.

    You stay with the twins or going single?

    Yeah, the first thing I'm gonna do when I get it is pull off the valve covers and see what I'm working with.

    Going single. I have a 67mm dm turbo from my 1j.

    Pulled it out today and slapped the rims on, and took some pics of the interior. Rims look nice. After I get the right size tires and drop it a little is should look really nice. Here are pics.
