View Full Version : 1995 black/black build

27-04-15, 03:37
Hi guys, I'm new to this forum due to my recent purchase of my 1995 n/a black/black 5spd hardtop that I believe to be a 1/1 optioned car but it is pretty rough. This is a TRUE ground up build and restoration and I want to get some opinions on what I should do with my car. The car didn't come with a engine or trans and a 1j is cheaper and still makes good power so I am concitering that and my goal power range is 550-700 hp. Also can it be swapped to a rear disc setup from a sc300, I'm familiar with both the supra and sc but I just want to make sure that would work.

First one to dis a long standing member's pride and joy and undoubtedly one of the best examples on the road.

The second looking for assistance.

You could only be a friggin' yank.

Not to rain on your parade, but most wouldn't consider the n/a to be a proper supra, no matter wtf you do to it or how many options it came with.

Please regard the underlined carefully and use it instead of the abomination you've puked onto my screen, TWICE!

Oh, and have a nice day.

Check the Wangan thread :shock: (one of my favourites of all time by the way)

What I'm confused about is if this is a "TRUE ground up build" then why skimp on the engine and transmission? If you can afford a build from the ground up, you can afford to go all out, if you can't then there is no point in starting.

Ps. It's not spring break is it?

1 / 1 optioned car ?

its a black hard top N/A 5 speed must be more like 1/1000000.

if your build is going to be a complete nut and bolt rebuild then yes I would conciter it a true project concitering it has no drive train it can only be called a project or scrap metal !, I'm going to say that the wangan supra is still a propper project car because he started with a complete car doesnt mean its any less of a project and more like a feat of engineering

That's a bit harsh mate, it is more a 1/100000.

"a TRUE ground up build and restoration"... on a budget, using an old NA shell, and parts from different cars.

So that's what a TRUE ground up build and restoration is!

Wellcome to the club, not the best way to start by being as rude as you were in the other post. And the work that has gone into that car is insane.

All the best with your build. I dont get what 1/1 means apart from the awnser being 1 :D any ways I would drop a 2jz gte and a 6speed in.

That's a tad harsh, so anyone with a n/a, na-t, na-tt, single turbo conversion or V8 conversion e.t.c. does not own a 'proper' supra - only stock TTs are 'proper'? Ok from a purist's point of view I suppose.

Not talking about stock cars Cushti, only comparing projects based on N/A's to those based on TT's.

Compare prices for similarly spec'd cars from both camps & you'll see it for yourself.

Well thanks for the "positive" comments and I'm not stupid I have the build sheet and it has factory rear drums with surprised me too but it is what it is. And to the Gallo bs I'm not stupid guys I just don't have much experience with supras. Also to let all you haters know I'm 16 and have a limited budget I don't have a job besides under the table parting out sc300s. For some reason the sight won't let me post pictures of it but it is a bare rolling shell at the moment due to the previous owner had intended on making it a race car. Trust me I wish it was a hardtop tt car but they aren't easy to find where I am from let alone a mk4 period.

Site.

The word is site.

How do you get to sixteen years of age without coming to terms with that small fact?

And Supras have drums for the handbrake integrated into the rear disks.

Now there's two helpful things to get you rolling.

If you do decide to post again I recommend it is in the form of an apology to the member you insulted with your ignorance.

Otherwise don't let the door hit you in the face as you leave bass ackward.

We can tell you haven't got a clue, as you come on here slate one of the best and one of the most expensive cars on here by saying yours is better but you don't have a clue about these cars ?

I think you should say sorry to Stevem and don't be surprised if you get told where to go, then go away think about what you done, start your build and come back and try again but if your going to be a bitch on her then just stay away mate


Good luck

Alright guys i'm sorry, as i said i'm not the most familiar with mkiv supras, i'm sorry for dissing peoples cars and i have apologized. The guy i bought the from took all the brakes off and told me the rears were drums, now i understand and sorry for me being stupid haha. I have all the brakes from a mkiv and i need to transfer them over from a sc300 parts car they were on. I'm focusing on the body work and dents the car has and needs then buying a engine and trans for it.

You are starting a business and money shouldn't be that big a problem. You sound like some 16 year old kid with no money! :D

Don't take this in the wrong way, you got a lot to learn & right now it sounds like you are going in several directions at once.

Yup, I may sound like a broke teenager but I'm really not, the pic on the trailer is when we just got it home and it was going to be a race car but the last owner gave up on it. I do have a lot to learn but this isn't my first serious build it is my first Japanese car build

I wouldnt even worry about turbo choice yet as you dont have an engine just yet , and by the looks of it turbo tec would of moved on so much by the time this builds finished / ready for the turbo ,

UNLESS

I agree with your v160 or v161 and a 2jz gte

your need a stand alone ecu your going to be looking at another 8000 for the box and engine plus another 2000 for the ecu and then 1500 for the tubby this doesnt include other little parts that will prberbly set you back another 3000 these are all rough costs.

I went and spent nearly 800 on a few "little parts" for mine :p

Good luck also pay the membership fee and you can get it into supra chat to start it as a project thread

Exactly. I know it's not the same as doing it yourself, but if you're going to build the same car you'll save an absolute fortune.

on a serious note you could buy a tt from here and transport it over there and use all the parts you have to build your car , this would be the cheapest option i would of thought ,

I know, but considering over here it's going to cost nearly a third of that to have a reliable NA-T, or by the time you get a TT engine, the missing bodyparts and fitted them.... respray..... you're not even going to decimate a BPU for 15k :d

I can paint the car and get all body work done for less than 1,000 u.s. Dollars and engine and transmission will cost me about 5,000 and I have a parts car for all the rest of the parts I need I only payed 2,000 for the car and in the market around me it is worth about 4,000

Pay the membership and look in the classifieds here...... total up your spend to do this, then compare it to what's on offer over here. I think you'll be a bit gutted by the time you get to your power region and see how much it's cost.

Where are you buying these parts from? Decent TT's go for around 30-40k in the US, do they not? To that end I would assume that you wouldn't get an engine and gearbox for 5k. Have you actually priced this stuff up? You're going to end up with a real headache doing this IMO but best of luck with it. I would definitely get a spreadsheet written up with what you need and the ACTUAL costs, rather than what you think things will cost. Supra parts are expensive, especially OE ones in the US.

650 for a full respray, should look pretty good once complete :D

As mentioned earlier in the thread, a set of door cards were being sold for $1500 in the states so you need to realistic about what you want to achieve here.

I have been pricing things out and I happened to find a wrecked usdm tt car which is really hard to find for cheep, I am deciding if I would want to buy that and if it would be worth it. I am looking at a precision 6262 to put on it but I am not sure if I will be able to find a v160 for cheep enough for me to buy, or I just get a r154 from my friend and put a strong rebuild kit in it what will make it as strong as a v160 if not stronger and for 1/4 the price

How much is shipping. How much is the wrecked Usdm. How much is your build costs.

Shipping over seas is about 1500 just from port to port and then another 1,000 just to get it shipped to my house not including all the paperwork I would have to do to make it legal. The wrecked tt usdm supra I can get for 6,000 and it has pretty much everything I need. Build cost would be about 7-8,000 for buy all the parts I need separate not including paint which I can get done cheep because I made a deal with the guy I bought it from because he is a painter.

That sounds like a better idea to build a better gearbox than the V160, as that can't hold a lot of power. Cheaper is better anyway, if it doesn't work then you keeping doing again. Saves you loads money if you have trouble counting like me.
