  1. I’ve never modded a car thinking about resale value and don’t plan to start now

  2. If you already own one just sit back and enjoy the ride. I see no issue in increasing prices, granted parts are becoming rarer and more expensive, but that was going to happen anyway. I never bought my Supra to make money on it. I bought it because I love these cars, its value is frankly irrelevant to me. It seems to me there are an increasing number of collectors (investors) vs enthusiasts buying the Supra now. That is a shame, but not unexpected.

  3. Good Afternoon Everyone Just a brief outline about ourselves so we're TCB Performance Parts Limited I know a lot of yourselves will know of ourselves already of course however for those of you who don't know us then we're the longest established specialist around in our specialist models which are the Toyota Celica, Supra and MR2's, we've been in business for 31 years! Starting off initially only dealing with second hand parts and then as time passed we branched out into the new items, now we stock one of the widest choice of parts variety on the shelf here which is expan

  6. Well Faye your thread must have resonated with me on a deeper level as I’ve also placed an order for this little pocket rocket. Lead times have increased massively so it’s arriving in the first few months of the new year. I went with platinum white and the circuit pack.

  8. I decided to stay 2jz in the end, I bought a vvti 2jz-ge that SRD are fully building for me, will probably go with something like a Borg Warner billet s369 turbo. I need to find a 6 speed box also, I’m not in any rush though, I’ve got a lot going on at the min. also in the middle of building another garage.

  11. Got my skuttle dipped. Not been out since the snow it seems my roof bolts are working a little loose while driving. So on Monday I will order some new ones and change them out with the aero seals when it gets warmer

  12. Hi guys, mine is a facelift aero in DJG but is N/A. When looking for one (way back) I saw two pre-facelift aeros in DJG's both N/A's but mine is the only facelift aero DJG I've ever seen.

  14. Going to have the underside sand blaster but not the whole shell. no real point as there isn’t any real issues with it. Just want the underside done as it doesn’t look completely done if you understand me. Where Iv removed the rear subframe and petrol tank it doesn’t have any seal there. So taking the lot off and going to give it a total coat as one not a patch up.

  18. Evening All, Another little update from Matt today, he’s got the doors and boot lid all prepped and primed, hoping to paint the bonnet tomorrow, so first part with the new colour! Can’t wait!

  19. So quick update, got the rear Carbing brace and air con delete bracket back from Inspraytion today. Think they’ve done a great job yet again, looking forward to seeing them installed.

  21. It’s actually a welcomed delay as the Wife is pushing for a bigger house which should mean I’ll have a barn or outbuilding to keep my cars under cover. Ive already started ordering parts, simple bits at the moment like a riser for the rear view mirror to lift it up 25mm, due to the visibility people have mentioned in the reviews. Once lockdown is over my friend is going to lend me his Yaris GR so that I can look into making up some better arch liners, as I believe the stock ones don’t cover a fair section of the arch. Super excited though

  22. Just sharing a new pic from the car. Nothing really has changed, It's not being driven because of everything going on. I did manage to pull it out of the garage for a quick dust down. The interior still gives me a smile.

  24. Afternoon All, Had some good progress on my build, Matt has been busy giving the car some love and attention, shell is now fully primed and ready to go. Should be seeing some paint very soon which is brilliant news! In other news I have ordered my new wheels which are being made over in Japan, order is placed so hopefully those turn up fairly soon. My new tyres are also here and ready to go on the new wheels when they arrive. My carbon headlight inserts from Paul/Whifbitz also arrived and I’m waiting for my facelift headlight rings from Noz which I plan to get painted and then

  25. Ok a long overdue update! So I decided to go for Whifbitz coilpacks instead of the standard dizzy and HT leads, apparently it'll be easier for mapping plus I reckon looks a lot cleaner. Throttle cable is hooked up to the pedal and just needs a bracket fabricating so it's not just flopping on top of the rocker covers. New (iridium) plugs have been put in (old ones were looking a little worse for wear!). A bunch of minor annoyances sorted and the wiring/loom work is getting there. Wideband is also ordered

  28. Huge news! Today I receive 90% of the parts that Im waiting for, only waiting for RPS Twin Clutch and BC Springs and Retainers! But the full manual V160 + B03B Diff conversion its on the way, all the original bolts, washers, studs... Everything OEM from Toyota from the backside of the engine to the rear drivetrain. Also all the parts to take out the engine and do a full refresh!!

  29. Think you are overthinking this a bit. The biggest impact on power output on these sorts of builds is turbo compressor airflow output. The more air & fuel you can squeeze in the engine the more power you will make. Simple stuff. Most of these builds have very unrestricted and efficient motors setups, so the main deciding factor on power will be how aggressive you want to run the turbo & if you have enough fuel and mechanical strength to keep everything together. Typically we never run the turbo absolutely flat out, and scale it to an area we deem safe, which is why you will get some di

  30. No quick spool valve. Just VVTi and fully built engine. Here's a decent indicator of what you can expect in terms of 6870 on different types of 2JZ. All runs done on TT6 cars in 5th gear (1:1). All have similar SRD engine builds, and all running ~2.0 Bar boost on e85. Red = Zach's 3.0 VVTI Blue = Dom 3.4 VVTi Green = Non VVTi 3.0 Peak power is comparable but response is vastly different. VVTi increases response like a stroker would to a non vvti setup. VVTi + Stroker = you win the game.

  31. Its called Blistering, its mosture usually in 1k primer and base and usually not the clear as most places will use 2k clear. Happens over winter on cheap/ rushed paint jobs to be quite blunt.

  32. Assuming your bonnet has been resprayed recently it looks like either solvent pop or fish eye, but hard to tell which from the photos. Solvent pop is usually because a layer of paint or clear didn't flash fully before the next one went on, whereas fish eye happens when there were contaminants in the paint, usually moisture. Either way, it needs re-doing as has been said I'm afraid.

  33. Tbh I say that but after looking at around 5 supras when purchasing my second one I actually purchased mine which id consider to be one of the cleanest in the country from a chap in Birmingham, so yes you are dead right. The one I viewed before it was in Portsmouth which I had high hopes for but it was an absolute dog, after a 600 mile round trip to view it it didn't even have any oil in it, seller didn't even give me my deposit back you live and learn i suppose.

  34. When bitcoin runs altcoins get nailed relative to their btc value - alt usd figures are generally worked out from the btc/alt pair value, so if bitcoin goes 10% in a day and your alt is up 5% (usd) it's a bad trade, you're down 5% in bitcoin value. The cycle generally goes like this. Bitcoin runs, alts suffer - you don't want to be holding them. Once bitcoin tops and consolidates (like what its doing now), you want to be all over alts, the alt/btc pairs start to play catch up and you can really make strong profits. Eth is the leading indicator of the fabled alt season. High caps go first,

  37. Shame I can't pressure test them. That would tell a story. Want to post them to me? If you pay return postage I'll reseal them for you for free. Then if start fogging again. We know its something else and we have a baseline for an air mod. I'll go over all the rubbers etc.

  38. We don't have the infrastructure to make this work at the moment and definitely not by 2022, my new build estate has been built over 2 years and it's not on any sat nav yet. There is also the safety factor of limiting car speeds, what if you are overtaking a car then all of a sudden your car cuts your speed and you have an accident. Regardless of whether you are breaking the speed limit or not, if this causes a danger to life then it will never be allowed to be put on cars. What is more than likely to happen is that the car will limit the speed but there will be a manual override to ignor

  45. Strongflex.eu in Poland produces relatively cheap bushes but I was really impressed with the fitment of the diff bushings, they state on the site that they will do them in black as well for a +50% in price. Still much cheaper than the alternative brands: https://www.strongflex.eu/en/tuleje-poliuretanowe-toyota-aristo-i/1475-211794a-rear-diff-mount-front-bush-sport-5902553518757.html I got the red "OEM" style hardness in my EUspec diff and they use the large OEM steel washers as well so you would barely see the difference between these and OEM if they are black.
