      Without further ado, i give to you my massive update! Its been long time since ive worked on this. But after fully down to metal restoring my clio and the engine blowing up again im pissed off with it so onto the supra. I have been a busy guy. Ill try to start out where i left off!

      After finding out my engine in the supra was toast. I went out buying bits to build it into a monster engine. However one evening surfing ebay I came across this fully built engine! I could help myself and jumped at it. it was built by a jent to take 8K limiter action and 1000BHP! both of these are good things, spec as follows;
      7MGTE
      machined by CTM performance engineering under charlie
      JE pistons .40 over
      Je pro seal rings
      Pauter X con rods
      Clevite bearings
      Stage 2 long duration cams ( with new shims)
      ARP stud and nut head fasteners (torqued to 90Ft Lbs with moly lube)
      ARP crank and main cap studs and nuts
      HKS stopper 2mm metal head gasket
      Gready timing belt
      ATI clear cam cover
      Titan adjustable cam verniers
      Brian crower valve springs and ti retainers
      7m Crank machined and balanced with rods pistons clutch and damper
      Stage 3 port and polish head job
      Skimmed head and block for MHG
      lapped valves
      New OEM tensioner
      Billet TPS
      24AN drain hoes
      Helicoiled exhaust threads
      New OEM oil pump shimmed 5mm
      HI flow oil pump feed
      New OEM water pump
      New OEM core plugs
      J tube block off plate
      EGR billet block off
      All new seals and gaskets from felpro
      New OEM crank pilot bearing
      New OEM oil pan FIPG
      Stainless nuts and bolts all round.

      And the epic clutch I got in the deal;
      Spec twin plate clutch SS trim capable of holding 900FtLbs which will kill the gearbox way before! :P I got it with a quarter master Hydraulic release bearing to convert from a pull to a push type. I need to get my hands on a larger master though need a .75 bigger unit for it to work.

      And i got a C's short shifter kit with the deal as well.


      I want to change the cam belt as its been sat a while, and i want to change the oil pump pully to a 5m round circle one. (anyone have one)











      when I was out in the USA with some friends i stopped at both CX racing and Drift motion to get some parts for my supra. I found this stunning Holset HX35 16Cm turbo on ebay USA so brought it back. I powder coated the compressor and had the turbine housing heat coated.



      I was lucky when at CX racing to pick up my manifold, its there thicker 11 gauge tube T4 manifold.




      I had to buy a T4 to T3 adaptor as my holset runs T3. I found out it wasnt flat so lapped it.





      Then from GT4 racing in Europe somewhere i ordered there rear poly bush kit for the subframe.


      This is how the car sat for over 3 years, poor thing.


      I was tierd of this so ground down all underside and etch primed where needed then many layers of stone chip. then in all the rails HEAPS of cavity oil.


      Also I forgot to mension A MASSIVE THANK YOU to BARA sport for rebuilding my diff. The put the Weir performance stage one package in it, with all new seals. I fitted this into my new coated rear subframe with the new GT4 poly bushs and with a hand from my main man kelly bolted it up.




      Next was to repaint the top of the tank and the hangers and install this.


      Notice the rusty nasty ass hubs? the handbrake was shot and a caliper was seized, so these needed full rebuild.
      Turned my attention to installing the new whiteline rear ARB, what a nice bit of kit this is.


      Painted the shafts up


      The new spherical bearing i got at driftmotion were up next. WHAT A CU*T to do!



      Look at the state of this handbrake!





      ALSO CAP ALERT... WHO HAS ONE OF THESE CHICKEN WISHBONE PAD SPACERS I NEED ONE PLEASEEEEEE


      So next was to mock up my new Battleversion rear arms. SEXUAL bit of kit.



      Two weeks of waiting seen my new handbrake springs come into stock


      I then ordered my new coilovers from Driftworks. They rate the spring rates at 10KG rear and 18KG front.. bone shaking rates. i changed them to a 12KG rear and 14KG front. such an impressive bit of kit these HSD monopros







      I couldn't find any adjustable drop links here in the UK so i found a company who had the right length kit, and made some spacers for these.


      rear end fully built back together finally. with new coil overs. I didnt have the budget to buy adjustable top control arms so just left the stock ones in for now.




      Some new rear mintex disc's as the old ones had a massive crack in


      I put the wheels on and on the ground for a laugh. 3 years since its been on teh floor. the tracking was so bad out, i took the rear apart and adjusted every arm.


      Finally got my calipers back from BIG REDD they did a wikid job overhauling these. they look brand new, i wouldn't know they were my old ones. so assembled them and fitted them to the car.





      And that ladies and gentlemen is the storey to date. Im like a bull to a red flag at the moment. Every part above i said i need please can someone help with as these are holding me up. I will build and finish this for my target in June when me and my friends go back to the ring. I want to take the supra as last year i was with my friend in his M5. an epic car... But just not my car if that makes sence. Hope you enjoy.

      I need another update with pictures to follow, but I hope to be getting it back on the road in the next few months, waiting on some vag coils, a ap 6pot bbk kit, and a few odds and sods before it goes to get it's new Adaptronic ecu and loom fitted.
