  2. Wanted to get this up to celebrate getting my Supra back on the road after a decade in the garage and to recognise the great work of both Jason @ Dyernostics and Paul and his team at Whifbitz making this happen. Was great to see after 10 years off the road everything come together so quickly from when the engine came out at Christmas to the car being mapped this week! How it all started Car started like this in 2006 as a Jspec GZ Auto, bought from club member kghelmet. I was just 23 and couldn't believe I got a Supra, especially when my last car was just a 1.8 litre Rover Coupe!

  3. Quick update, I was waiting for parts to arrive that I purchased from TCB, and to say the pandemic caused a few problems would be an understatement. Today though I received a box of OEM goodies which will help me near the finish line. love a parts delivery! - Basically new hardware for the underside, diff/subframe bolts, - Interior screws and fixings, replacement door membrane’s as the ones on the car were ripped. - Facelift indicators and looms. - Ignitor and Airbox bolts, and the throttle body pipe replacement. - Bonnet catch (both sides)

  5. Hi everyone, I am sorry for the lack of updates – I cannot believe it has been almost 2 months since my last update! Things have been awfully slow since my last update as I have been in limbo, waiting for various items to arrive and for people to get back to me. I did manage to tick a few items off the list though. I was able to swap the “problem” bolt on the front of the supercharger for a countersunk bolt and that did the trick nicely. Once again, thank you very much mattdavies for the suggestion! I decided to replace the stock idler with the new flat idler and add the e

  7. Hi here ! I create my own topic about my project of restoration for my recent mk4 purchase because I cant find any real information about rust restoration. So, let's start it ! I hope that this topic can help someone ^^ It's a jdm 1993 N/A manual Toyota Supra who need so much love .. Purchased in March, very clean in pictures, but very rusty underside ! Since 1999 in the UK, 2013 in Belgium and 2015 in France. I'm decide to restore it, if I can because she need some lot of work. You can see in the first pictures the day when I purchase it.

  11. Oh please. Your complaining about lack of events? Have you been living under a rock for the past year and a half? Before covid there were road trips and events. The Dragonball was the main one. We had ace cafe meets too. I'm pretty sure there was a nurburgring trip each year. But that not my kind of thing. Then we have had the s club party thing. The anniversary meets. The meet when the Mk5 launched. I forget which show it was but it was held at the NEC we attended each year too. And several others. Many of these. Dragonball and the sclub party are, as far as I

  16. Evening people, don't post much but after being off the road for 7 years I thought I'd post a few pictures! Know how we all like pictures lol After starting a business 10 years ago, I had no time or money for the car so she went away and got forgotten for probably about 5 years. we decided to buy a new house that needed a full renovation, and also had spec for an extension and maybe a nice warm garage! So.... I opened the garage Ashamed.... I pushed her out changed the oil and filter, some fresh fuel, and made sure the engine was free ...she started first time !

  17. Hi all, Picked up my first supra in 2014 which was an automatic aerotop that was a non runner. Over the years I've made a few changes with it with the biggest changes being a 1jz non vvti out of a soarer and also got a w58 manual conversion and the car has been brilliant. Just wish I had tried pick up the proper 2jz 6 speed running gear at the time to of had a more original feeling car but can't fault the 1jz with the w58. Just recently I ended up getting my hands on another supra with a 2jz-gte non vvti with a 6 speed and A02B diff. Absolutely delighted with the car it drive so smoothly

  18. Everything done today! I think that my #2 Turbo oil seal its damaged, a little blue smoke coming out of the exhaust when you pull the pedal after idle. Oil change, spark plugs changed, and the smoke stops, maybe the previous oil density was really low. I will check but anyways, single turbo time its coming hahaha Also new front lip!!

  23. And here we have it. The first prototype kit going out for trials. I've wired up a small air pump with inline fuse and switch. Thinking to fit a variable speed controller first to be fair. Maybe I'll sort that before sending it. Dammit. I'm certain this could be the future to helping fogging. Especially if we pull warm air from back of the engine bay slow enough to cool the headlights slowly rather than cold air hitting them after being on or just by excess moisture in the light (removing by air movement generally).

  24. I've owned supra's for over 25 years now and I think they are worth the increase easily. For people to compare them inferior to an r34 well that's just bxllocks the supra is as good and better, you have to look at other cars to see the price hike like ford rs models and cosworth some are going for a 100k. The trouble with this country is to many cheap scate chavs that think they can get everything for nothing that was the problem with the import market with the supra's coming in country too many cheaper models that allowed people that would not normally be able to afford this car buy, now th

  27. Got all the parts on inc the cheap cat pipe, not had chance to test the emissions yet Found a local LR tech that can calibrate the new height sensors, he did that on Monday so thought I'd give it a good test drive today and its spot on, treated it to a bath at the local jet wash on my way home

  29. Foreword, following a dose of hindsight. Ladies and Gentlemen..... Thank You for looking. Unfortunately for you, but now fortunately for me. I am going to keep the car, and start a project thread instead of selling, let’s just call it a gut feeling. Saturday 1st May 2021 - wrote a sales advert off the cuff, thought it time to move on to something different, really fancied a Range Rover (still do). Later the next day out towards Kingsbridge for a drive, some strange occurrences took place. A Lamborghini Aventador driver hanging out his drivers window smiling and

  31. It's going to need 20k to get it road worthy, by time you've spent countless hours and stress finding every part and a year down the line you will probably wish you just spent 30k on a clean one. The only way I'd say its a viable project is if you're going to do the work yourself, otherwise it looks like the worst money pit in the world. remember the seller deemed it uneconomical to repair and bought a new shell, thats serious labour to swap it all over so it really can't be worth it imo

  32. Looks as though this little engine is going to be quite a popular unit for engine swaps, found this article recently and can only imagine how much fun that cars going to be. http://www.speedhunters.com/2021/04/an-ae86-levin-with-gr-yaris-power/?fbclid=IwAR2R5YJkKcOx_YxsPJKNmME1O1DY_mcacMRuHhY7fiFaWVk-HcjaC-FrKms

  33. Morning All, Got a nice video from Matt yesterday, he’s painted the rear bumper, door handles and fuel filler flap. Just leaves the diffuser to paint and we should be left with just the shell to paint before re-assembly can begin in earnest. Really excited now and that colour is sooo nice! IMG_1278.MP4

  35. August 2016. One of my favourite places Dartmoor. These were taken after removing the extra badges, pretty sure the car was performing a little better with the weight reduction it saw. The car actually came with some nice wheels, although 19’s Khan was the manufacturer now big into Range Rover modifications funnily enough. Really well made wheels, but boy they were heavy, stayed super clean though mega bonus easy to wash. April 2017. Not a great deal changed by this point apart from the weather, which actually saw me drive it with t

  36. Afternoon All, So Matt has been working flat out over the weekend and has now got the rear bumper and diffuser fitting nicely and primed for paint. Just waiting on the black mesh to arrive so I can drop that off for the diffuser. Hopefully it can then get painted ready to re-install once the shell is painted. Then we are on to re-assembly and me getting it back! Check out the work at the rear quarter panels with the carbon lower section of the Ridox panel. Think the cut off and fade looks epic personally. The diffuser is not attached here, just held in place with the trolley ja

  38. This is a valid point, in recent times I’ve seen a NA-T sell for £35k, and here in Scotland a Black TT6 just sold for £43,600, I know this as I was the person the buyer asked to look it over. Just a couple of examples I’ve seen recently. I’ve been asked to look over a White TT6 up here in Scotland for a Porsche Dealer who took it as part ex also, so can share what that sold for, if the buyer follows through with the purchase. Will check on the consensus but I’d love to engage with the club insurers to see if we can get a sit down around forum valuation services for members

  41. Yeah, it was a knight racer supplied and fitted job. Trial rear is fine, do-luck front isn't greatest fitment and the blending had discoloured - looks like too much hardener in the filler according to my trusted bodyshop. Got a stock front gooing on, remove the blends and then respray original colour coming up. Even thinking of going stock rear, but torn as I still like the trial one. Will get some more pics up as the jobs get done!

  43. I second that Phil. I like the car interior but not all the added sound crap. The exhaust is way too long for my taste. Seems to ride really low and I am not sure a TRD supra is worth that figure he said, end of the day is only a body kit and the dash clock. Lastly the bumper and bonnet are misaligned. Saying all of that I like the car and wouldn't increase the power anymore. I would work on better launch control, see if wider wheels can be used, fix the bumper /bonnet misaligment and call it a day.

  44. Thank you mate. Thanks. Bit more progress today. ABCarbon who are doing the work on my steering wheel panel sent me a photo of the cloth all trimmed and ready to laquer. Should look lovely when it’s finished. Really happy with his work and communication has been spot on. Matt also called me in to discuss the TwinZ diffuser install. Unfortunately the moulded rear skirts and carbon fuel tank cover made the install a lot harder than I’d imagined. Thankfully Matt is a true pro and has managed to make it work for my setup. Needs some finishing, but it’s on and looking damn fin

  45. Probably the only forum I’m a part of whose members consistently bitch about their assets appreciating! I sold my completely stock white 1999 TT6 for £35k last year and I knew that prices would almost double this year (needs must), in spite the efforts of some to suppress or cast doubt over the trend, the market will continue trending upwards until prices harmonise globally. That car looks lovely and who cares if it was a NA once upon a time? It’s still a Supra... Just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride I say!

  46. Exciting news! Car will be totally legal in Spain on Wednesday. I ordered a Link G4X ECU with adaptor harness for stock wiring to fit it in my actual non vvti engine. (Didn’t go with the Plug and play ECU Because its not really compatible with my future VVTI engine plans) Ready to be tuned by the best tuner in Spain GMC Sport to do a BPU+ setting and restore my confidence in tuners after my previous bad experiences, after this and in a few months, the single project will start, and go @Luxluc way VVTI Euro Spec I will keep you updated s

  47. Hey Peter, Thanks for the recommendation I’m delighted you are happy with them. As regards them being a water trap we designed the pucks to have a gap all the way around in the rears along with drain holes in the plates so water won’t be sitting there. For the people who have ordered and haven’t heard back I’ve posted on the original sales post on fb asking people to get in touch so we can ship all the remainder in one go to minimise customs etc. Thanks again Peter, happy customers make all the effort worth while.

  48. First prototype done! Loads better with a variable output on the motor. Only need a bit of air thing sounded like a small turbine try to run the car Excited for this. Uses 300mA on full chat and 100mA at lowest smoothest setting which is about half.

  49. Fair enough mate. It’s all relative and a personal choice at the end of the day. Just because I like these and wanted to run a set doesn’t mean it’s right for everyone. Cost is also subjective, if these do prevent people bending the sills then it will pay for itself pretty quickly, if they don’t use the jack points, then I’ll be getting them to repair it mate as I plan to let everyone know they are there if they need to jack the car up for any reason. I don’t see these being a water trap hazard, the fit means you aren’t making any new holes, just using what’s already there. If the fr
