No mate, there's loads of variations. Have a look in the technical section. There are loads of faq's etc that you can swot up on :)

Looking at your Skyline you'd probably want a single Supra sooner rather than later

Welcome to the club, looks pretty nice :)

How well is the engine holding up? This is the 2.5 single turbo engine right?

Are the single turbo's easy to find though, they are all conversions though arnt they?


looks nice mate :thumbs: btw do you live in Beirut :p

lol you could say that, its a place called mansfield.


Welcome to the club, looks pretty nice :)

Engine is holding up fine, running 1.2 bar boost and yes single turbo 2.5 ,i can imagine a supra to be more torquey than a skyline though.

Yup, all the singles are conversions and come up on this forum from time to time.

I wouldnt discount Ryans twin turbo V8 however! That things a bit special

You've got the swear filter turned on, that's why the word is replaced by symbols. Anyone who doesn't have the filter will still see the swearing though, and that can cause problems if they're at work.

ive always like the R33 to be fair. and that's a nice example! packs a punch to by the look of it.

if your looking to buy a supra, i would keep an eye out on here for one that you want in the state that you want it. `GOING` single is expensive, there are always good quality singles for sale that pop up. and people who know the car can rate it and give information on its history.

Welcome to the forum Andre.

Very nice R33 by the way :)

skyline1
17-08-11, 14:19
Cheers guys the skyline is fun and ridiculously fast , it likes wheel spinning in the dry when you plant your right foot! Just can't use all the power hence why I want a supra with traction control and the engines are more tunable to be fair.

Ive looked in the classified section and seen some nice ones just need to sell mine first.

skyline1
26-08-11, 20:25
Well ive just got my wallet out and became a "full member" if you wanna call it that lol.

so i guess you guys are stuck with me..... just gotta sell the skyline now.

Welcome Andre.

Lovely Skyline you have there. You obviously have good taste in car looks, but I don't think much of your street.
