Hello,
Looking to get my first supra and looking to get a n/a or single turbo manual.
Hoping to get one before January.
If your selling one pm me.

Thanks
Ryan

OK so you're looking for the cheapest and most expensive options. nothing in between.

Makes perfect sense.

Not really ... I'm just specifying what I want.
I have a budget which is very reasonable

Are you meaning an NA-T or a TT-Single? You need to be a paid member to use the pm system and access the classifieds section

I'm guessing the OP is not 100% clued up on Toyota Supra mkIV model and engine specs from factory....? (Correct me if I'm wrong)

I'm guessing you think the Supra goes in order of power levels:

Supra N/A
Supra Single Turbo
Supra Twin Turbo

Am I right? (I've encountered this a lot recently)....

Reading the op other post it seems his insurance is cheaper on a single turbo? I think the insurance company have got it really wrong. I would advise the op to check with them that they know what a single turbo supra is before buying one. Graves if you want some more advise just send me a pm I'm happy to help as it can be confusing

Sorry abit confused. I have a paid membership drift bear. Sorry if I sound like a idiot ��
I thought they went na, na-t, single, twin. I maybe wrong?

NA-T is single. But when most people use the word single, they're describing a twin turbo that has has the factory turbos replaced by a larger single turbo.

You can also get aftermarket big twin turbos, so it can be confusing :D

I see! Right thanks,
I thought a na-t was a conversion and the supras come single and twin.

I have between 7 and 8k if that's a reasonable budget

You can get a good auto TT for that money, but If I were you id try and save up another few thousand and get a manual TT at 10~13k

The supras come from the factory as an n/a or a twin turbo. All singles are a modified upgrade.

You budget will get you a nice na-t but I don't think you will get a tt single.

If your stuck finding a nice na-t you can buy a nice na and get a trader to turbo it for you.

Edited to remove unauthorised traders name.

You won't get a single for 7-8 k.

I would suggest a nice TT. Some guys on here went the NA-T route, but I doubt that your budget is enough for that.

Sounds like you would be well advised to do lots of homework on the mkiv before you go to buy one.

Whatever you look at be it NA, NA-T, TT, Single T, manual 6 speed, 5 speed, Auto, J spec or UK

Make sure your insurance quotes aren't for the mk3, this seems to happen a lot

Insurance isn't a issue.
So judging by what input everyone has had I am best to get a NA or a NA-T?
Can anyone put me in touch with someone who's selling one, seen a few na online but there in bad shape or high mileage.

Your not going to find a low mileage one for the money you are looking at spending.

You get what you pay for and with the price of the Supra rising people are hanging onto them.

Hi mate you will get a really nice na-t for that money but I'd go for a tt with that budget mate

Graves

Yeah just looking about and all I can find is ones way out of my budget or they have high mileage and the bodywork is terrible

My advice would be to save up another 5k and get a well sorted well looked after car next year rather than rush now :thumbs:

A friend of mine has a nearly finished single turbo an-t manual that he would sell for the right money (4-5k)
Silver, facelift lights, leather seats etc. but needs bodywork sorting, no dents etc but needs boot re spraying as he de-spoilered it.
And needs clutch fitting that he has ready :) pm me if your interested.

7and half grand if this is your budget will get you a Auto TT. or a NA 5 speed manual or a NA-T manual or Auto variant theirs allot of research to do i spend a good 6 months looking and researching and another year searching for my car.

and 6speed na manual you may get lucky and get one for the top end of your budget.

Good luck and your in the right place or advice, questions and research :)
