JDM 1JZ TT-R Supra details/specs
I'm starting this thread because the interest in JZA70's is starting to skyrocket - best way to find out what you should be looking for. Some fervor has been created over TT-R clones (as if it makes a difference to us NA's)
Please post any info you KNOW to be accurate and I will update the first post as needed. These are some details I have either discovered or welcome clarification on - feel free to add anything else. )

Years available - 90-92 only?
Interior colors/specs - Recaro cloth F/R, no rear wood deck in any JDM MKIII's, molded rear carpet
Exterior colors - mostly black and Mica Green - others?
Hardtop or targa - only hardtop or both?
Differentials - Torsen, 4.10 ratio
Misc interior appointments - steering wheel

Larger front sway bar (Same as MA70 Turbo A)
Rear sway bar is the same as some other models (GA70 TT, MA70 Turbo A, JZA70 TT Base model)

To cap this off, I'm being led to believe that the TT-R is not a car that is easy to obtain in the US - why is that? We can freely import them in Canada, and in fact, mine is for sale right now, getting a lot of interest from south of the border - please chime in with your experiences on registering RHD's in the US also.
Keeping Supras alive since 1986 - hell, someone's gotta do it!

Setting the standard

Central Florida
In Florida, we can register JDM cars. My sponsor John has a 94 MR-2 and 92 GTS-T Skyline. Another friend has a 96 GTST Skyline, another a Pulsar GTI-R. There's also a Soarer, Chaser, a few RHD Supra's here (mkiv). Ohh, lets not forget the EVO 3. Thats just within a 20mi radius of where I live. All legal, registered, and titled with their non standard JDM vin. Florida doesn't care, just pay the taxes and fee's, about $2500 dollars worth.

This is a little misleading because all of the models mentioned are variations of the JZA70, not the 2.5GT Twin Turbo R. The TTR is just one of those models.

The rest of them have are more or less the same as we got here, just with a 1J.

Thought I'd bump this and add to the list, it came with momo steering wheel and shift knob, colours available; mica green, black and red. 100% sure all tt-r's are hardtop as they were the lightest model produced. Had full recaro cloth interior as well. Some had digital gauges some didn't. but I believe people get the 2.5gt aero's confused with the TT-R

Does anybody know how many JZA70 Twin Turbo R's were manufactured? I may sell mine at some point and I would like to perhaps throw the "rare model" deal around.
