    Quick typo to point out.

    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.

    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?

    7,700 TTs by comparison, almost all aerotops.
