UK manual single turbo project


Recommended Posts

Change of plan - no longer for sale.  

It is with a very heavy heart that my beloved Supra goes up for sale.  Please read the whole add before messaging, and please keep any negative comments to yourself.  

 

Genuine UK manual Supra, owned by myself since 2006 with 152k miles.  Full body restoration in 2018 addressing some rust and with a full glass-out respray including refurbishing the alloys in a gun metal grey.  

 

Originally owned by Formula 1 driver Ukyo Katayama, with log book to prove.  While file of paperwork from the years.  

 

I started on a conversion to single turbo but got slowed down by the pandemic, and then completely stopped with a new baby arriving last July.  The car is currently mid-conversion and so undriveable but has everything needed to complete, as below.  

 

To complete it needs the fuel lines finishing, inlet manifold re-assembling, the ECU and associated sensors wiring in, and then a mapping session.  So not a lot of work or money to complete.  This has everything needed for 600+bhp.  

 

Current spec: 

- Rota GTR 18” wheels, 8.5” front, 9.5” rear with Goodyear Eagle F1 Assymetric tyres all round

- Blitz Nur Spec exhaust

- Whifbitz 3” decat pipes

- Whifbitz FMIC

- Recaro confetti seats

- OS Giken TS2CD, full overhaul kit fitted in 2014 and covered less than 6k miles

- Front calipers overhauled 2019 with genuine Toyota kit

- Rear light clear indicator conversion

- Facelift headlights

- Facelift clear front indicators

- Clear side repeaters

- Innovate LM-1 wideband sensor and LMA-3 aux box

 

Fitted but not yet used (all brand new): 

- PHR Street Torque Kit; PHR log manifold, Precision 6266 0.81A/R turbo, Precision 46mm wastegate

- Whifbitz Top Feed Fuel Rail

- ID1050X injectors with PnP tails

- Braided fuel lines for the top feed rail and removal of fuel damper

 

Not yet fitted: 

- Whifbitz twin-box 3” exhaust

- Brand new Toyota front subframe support

- Complete set of genuine Toyota discs and pads

- Rear caliper overhaul kit with Chris Wilson stainless steel pistons

- Link G4+ PnP ECU with MAP sensor, boost control solenoid, IAT sensor, and XS loom

- Burna's Link ECU 3D printed covers

- Walbro 455 Fuel Pump

- Fuel Pressure regulator with gauge

- Most of a full Genuine Toyota head gasket kit

 

Also comes with: 

- The entire stock twin turbo system

- A complete genuine standard exhaust minus the rear cat as it started blowing

- A spare 2.5” rear decat pipe that I was planning on getting fitted with a cat for MOTs

- The active spoiler set up that was removed to fit the FMIC

 

The bad bits: 

- The Recaro’s are tatty and in need of new foam and a re-trim

- The dashboard panels could do with stripping and re-coating, they’re not awful though

- The gear stick gaitor/trim isn’t original and doesn’t fit well

- The front bumper has some damage around the driver-side headlight washer where my mates car rolled in to it

- There are signs of the paint bubbling slightly on the sills under the doors

- The rear lights have a tendency to mist up and need re-sealing

- The rear steel part of the front subframe is rotten through, but the car comes with a brand new one to fit

 

The engine oil has been changed every 3000 miles or annually depending on which has come sooner, for many years this has been annual as it hasn’t covered many miles at all.  Spark plugs were always changed at the same time with NGK coppers to the correct heat rating and gapping.  The original radiator was replaced a couple of years ago with once from Chris Wilson that is very similar to the original design.  The cam belt has been changed as required (I have invoices for the work) and at the last change the front main seal was replaced too.  The water pump has also been replaced during my ownership, probably about ten years ago.  

 

I’ve owned this car for nearly 15 years and am very attached to it.  My situation means I could do with selling it, but I am fully aware of how rare it is and so ask that you do not make offers.  The asking price is the asking price, I will not be swayed.  If it doesn’t sell I’ll try and sell one of my poorly functioning kidneys instead.  

 

The car is in East Sussex for viewing, obviously once coronavirus restrictions allow.  You will obviously need to trailer the car away.

Mark was this the car that was restored (bodywork) as A1?

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I had a lot of interest in the car which genuinely surprised me.  

 

I'm afraid I'm going to take it off sale, my friends and especially my wife have talked me out of it (I knew I married the right one!).  The thought of selling the car really made me miserable, and as all my friends have said, I will regret it.  So I'll keep her and hopefully this year I'll be able to get her running again and enjoy her for a few more years.  

 

Apologies to everybody who contacted me, it was never my intention to mess anybody around.  It seemed like the right thing to do but other possibilities have come to light over the last couple of days.

Sounds like you have a great Wife and good friends, sold my U.K. spec single over a decade ago so we could get on the property ladder, but regretted it for years until finally getting another Supra I’m building now. :) 

Stay strong, keep moving forward even if it’s only small steps, you will get it finished and you will reap the rewards.

Best of luck! 👍

Have a look at my build thread buddy, been busy last year and this year on exterior, wheels, suspension, exhaust. Next year is 8-speed Lexus ISF gearbox conversion, rebuilt uprated rear differential, SYVECS S7+ ecu with some sensors and fueling work. Then year after is engine build with 3.4L stroker and single turbo conversion. Aim is 900whp. :)
