Here is my revised version of Aerotop Dave's Guide to the Supra and his Model Differences Chart. I have converted them both to PDF format to make them more web friendly. The Model Differences Chart is attached to this post and contains details of which models and variants have which features.

The club would like to thank Dave for his efforts in creating the original documents.

Looks like a lot of hard work. A few comments:

SZ-R aerotop? Surely not? The whole point of the SZ-R is that it's manual only and lightweight, so why would they make a heavy auto aerotop?

Also active spoiler and fold in wing-mirrors are options on the SZ-R, cause I've got them.

Hope this helps

:looney:

I've mentioned the aerotop thing a couple of times before (well actually to anyone who will listen and then ignore me ;)) mine and a few others are SZs only. I too thought that the SZ-R was the spritely version.

Thanks very much for the hard work that went into the supra guides!! Thanks to them I didn't feel like such a newb when viewing Supras.

Quick typo to point out.


Unusually the turbos are sequential - usually with a twin turbocharged setup a V6 engine is used with one turbocharger feeding one back of cylinders..




feeding one bank of cylinders


Not being pedantic, just trying to help improve it.

So if "N/A" is SZ, SZ-R & SZ-R Aertop,

And "TT" is RZ, RZ-S, RZ-S & RZ Aertop. . .


THEN WHAT ARE THE "Single Turbo" Models called?

~ ZZ Top? (-:

(seriously though, anyone know?)

There not, all single Turbo's are modified from TT's so there original model code would be as you have quoted above not forgetting the GZ as well.

Or they are Na-T conversions and the same would apply

In regard to the JDM:

* The 'facelift' import started in 96.5 not 97.. and in 97.9 the VVTI engine was introduced, actually the JDM went through quite a few minor changes up to and possibly past 98, but generally they 'facelift is considered to have started in 96.5.
* I've seen a late model JDM SZ-R with traction control.
* The 6 speed / big brakes / wheels was standard fit on the SZ-R in 96.5, not sure when they stopped this wierd version, but it was before 99.
* The JDM SZ-R does not come in aerotop.
* There are 3 types of "JSpec suspension", normal, bilstein and REAS. Off the top of my head REAS was introduced in 98.
* The 'Facelift' imports (SZ, SZ-R, RZ-S) had a new design of cloth seats, not black leather.
* Fold in mirrors were on the 96.5 SZ-Rs, so I would also assume RZ/GZs.
* There is more complexity to the abs systems. But I don't have set dates on when what was introduced.
* Steering wheels. Early model, 3 spoke == no airbag, 4 spoke = airbag. Sometime after 96.5, not exactly sure when: 3 spoke is introduced with bumps above the thumb points and have airbags, RZ models have a carbon fiber finised 3 spoke with airbags. (N.B. The late model steering wheels are alot better).
* There is no JDM VVTI SZ or SZ-R

I dont think they stopped the 6 speed SZ-R before 99 as I have one and its a 2000 reg.
Also my SZ-R has the carbon fibre steering wheel and black leather, and the fold in mirrors.
This might not be normal but they were not bought after the car.
Maybe I just got a strange one!! lol

Something I'd like to understand.

The NA supra is actually a j-spec car? Then why can we see alot of NA supras that are left hand drive???

Also what is the diameter of the discs on the NA one.

I'd like to get a more complete technical specs list on the supra.

Good job tho, I've learned alot.

Jake
14-04-07, 12:56
The NA supra is actually a j-spec car? Well the NA was never sold in the UK. All the NAs in the UK were imported from Japan and are JDM spec. I don't know about the NAs in North America, maybe the NA was an official model over there?

Bobbeh
14-04-07, 14:25
Yeah it was a US model. They had the VVTi NA model too.

3,539 NAs sold in the US (not sure if that includes Canada).
7,700 TTs by comparison, almost all aerotops.

Hi guys, I am just a little confused with
the Aerotop thing, i mean parently all of them
are autos, if anyone remember from FAST AND FURIOUS
the orange Aerotop Supra was Manual ????::blink:

Also is it possible to change the tranmission from Auto to Manual

if yes then how much are we talking in US DOLLARS ?

The orange Supra in F&F was also an NA when it rolled into the garage. ;)

27-04-07, 08:34
:rolleyes: u can change it over hear is some parts u will need The Parts.
To do this swap, you'll need a few parts:

Transmission
clutch disk
flywheel
pressure plate
pilot bearing
throwout bearing
shifter
inner/outer boots
clutch cylinder
clutch lines
slave cylinder
power train frame
speedo cable

i dunno the cost sorry

I just bought a na from Jap. Excellent review. I wanted a TT but now I'm happy with what I got. Question. How much will it cost me to get rid of the horrible 'fog light' and get the fogs to be part of main lights? How much to have an 'English' dash board and to derestrict from the snail top speed (112mph).
Thanx Guys
XID :)

Masenko
11-05-07, 19:55
Isn't it like 600 to convert from auto to manual? I'm not too sure...

I know that the derestriction chip will set you back around 70, check out Thor Racing :)

Here is another similar link to Supra info, this is a car catalogue put together by a Japanese company called 'Goo'. Has a lot of hard to find info, plus interesting stuff like original factory prices, gas mileage etc. All in Japanese, but if you put the URL into a translator like Altavista then most of it comes out fine (if u can ignore the strange spelling some of the time)

http://www.goo-net.com/catalog/TOYOTA/SUPRA/index.html


Also, Im in agreement with Lust2luv, my SZ-R also has elect. mirrors..possibly its factory stnd?
A lot of people on this forum seem to mistakenly think SZ-R is a base model, but 'R' usually designates some kind of performance model for Japanese cars. eg. Integra type-R, Silvia Spec R, Skyline GT-R, RX-7 type R. Supra SZ-R is the same, thats why it has Bilstein sus, LSD, etc. Also, I believe that there was no SZ-R aero-top, at least not in Japan anyway.

If anyone is interested I also have Toyotas list of recommended wheel sizes & offsets for the Supra. Is only for factory suspension tho of course...if you lower it sizes will change. Email me & I can send it to you.

That's an interesting site, although the text is difficult to read when translated and makes it hard to see the actual changes from year to year, but it does confirm some dates we thought (facelift cars in April 1996, but no vvti by then).

Do you read Japanese iikun?

i'm a newbie so please don't laugh. what does jza80 stand for and ma71 stand for? I have searched but couldn't find. Also is vvti better? what are the pros and cons?

carl0s
24-02-08, 10:41
JZA80 is the mk4 model designation/code. MA71 is the mk3 turbo model code for America. (was MA70 here).
VVTi is better.

Facelift any day of the week, I've had both. UK car was in poorer condition all round. Jap cars seem to be easier to work on, in terms of siezed nuts & bolts, body condition etc. It's like my Mazda RX7.. I was telling a guy how amazed I was that it was so tidy underneath and suspension and brakes were easy to work on, no siezed up bits and no rust, and he said "yeah all the imports are like that. It's the UK cars that are bad". ;)

Facelift is just much nicer, and more spooly turbos.

3.5k is NA money really. NAs should be between 2k and 3.5k, maybe more for a nice facelift one (up to 4.4 tops I reckon), auto/manual shouldn't affect prices for non turbo cars.

This forum or eBay would be a good place to look. It's a bit like houses I suppose, so you can expect to knock a bit of most seller's asking prices. Nobody wants to specify their actual asking price because they expect to be knocked down ..

220 or 225, thereabouts. I think you can expect to increase that to 235 tops if you remove the airfilter / replace it with a non-functioning air filter (obviously not something you should do) and decat.

n/a are definatly worth getting if you havent had one before, i started off with a n/a auto and i was delighted with the way it drove and how fast it was through gears. now moving onto a tt manuel, so hope im as impressed. i never thought id have an auto. but it doesnt drive like an auto. so reponsive. Getting the experience from the n/a was vital in my experience.
very good guides :)

Hi guys! Just a super quick quizzer, am in Japan as I type hunting a clean monocoque for a build - can I just confirm that as far as anyone has heard all of the bare chassis, regardless of trim and spec should be identical - meaning only slight differences between the pre and post facelifters only?

Many thanks!

It's the same gearbox as the regular auto, except it has an ugly selector stick, and up/down buttons on the steering wheel, which is why it's called tiptronic. It's the same normal 4spd a340e box.

Hello All

I recently bought a 1994 Supra TT, having trouble identifying which model it actually is? Gz, Rz etc. seems to have quite a few factory
options such as Targa-top, front leather seats of which drivers is
electric. is an auto has 2jz-Gte on build plate & engine cover. has no reference anywhere in engine bay of model type. I am hoping some Supra guru on this site will be able to shed some light.
I personally believe its a Gz-aerotop as i don't think Rz's come in aerotops? just dont have code to verify this.

Great guide! Does anyone know the gross weight of a j-spec TT's? I have a 1994 auto TT (standard roof) and relly need to know this to register the car.

Hi, thanks but what I need is the total, gross weight. My car is a 1994 TT RZ auto with standard roof. The car was never sold here in Sweden and the authorities need an official statement about the cars max allowed weight. I have checked other swedish-reg'd Supras and they all have different curb weights, max weights, some are 2 seaters and other reg'd as 4 seaters...

Hi
the J-spec Supra RZ TT auto 1994 has a gross (=maximum) weight of 1730 kg. Means it's legally only a 2-seater here in Sweden!

Thanks for the very thorough summation of all that is Supra. On the fuel recommendation I have run my TT for the last 13 years and 80,000 miles on standard unleaded with absolutely no problems. No roughness, engine temerature is good and it managed 330bhp at the wheels when I last had it on a rolling road. Also it was BMW M3 eating happy to 158mph on the limiter when I'd run it up and down the autobahn.

hi thanks for the great information, must have been a huge effort
i have a question...
my supra is a 1993 j-spec automatic twin turbo
the second to last letter on the top line of the vin plate is Z (gz model) the last letter is Q (rz model)
i am pressuming it is a gz model from that information..... but according to the specifications info provided an LSD is factory equiped to the car yet on the last line it appears i have a standard differential (A)
so just wondering if i have an rz or a gz?!?!?
i also dont have an active spoiler but judging by the paint it looks like the front bumper has been replaced at some stage
any info is appreciated cheers guys!! :)

Just wanted to say on the fuel front, where you recommend higher octane fuels. I have run supermarket bog standard in my TT6 for 16 years without any problems. Everything mechanical is as it came out of the factory 18 years ago and she runs fine, dyno was 330bhp at the drive wheels when last tested, on supermarket fuel.

the vvti has knock sensors and different ecu
I've have used standard fuel a couple times due to no high octane available and runs the same

Just wondering if this chart has been updated at any time?

Seems there's a heap of 5 speed SZ's 1996 onwards (therefore S2) around for sale, which the chart doesn't reflect?

A brilliant guide to the supra but im wondering is this the definitive guide to the supra,, i've got a 94 tt rz, it has the Active spoiler,electric fold in mirrors,front / rear leather seats which the fronts are heated but on the guide all these were unavailable on the rz.

Guigsy
07-10-14, 15:08
Heated seats only came on uk spec cars iirc. So they are an aftermarket addition. Or you have a uk car. The vin plate will tell you. Japanese writing... Jspec. Don't forget. A lot of these cars although stock looking could be swapped arround. It's very easy to change interiors and brakes etc.

Check your armrests on the doorcards, UK specs are leather trimmed, all J-specs are vinyl with fake stitching.

vinyl,fake stitching, some one spent a lot of money putting the extra's on :)
