What the Future May Hold

In the meantime, as I wait for the military to pay up on the installation of my signing bonus for this year... I'm making a list of the parts and components I'd like to install when I get the cash.

Mishimoto Dual Electric Fan Shroud for the 7MGTE should provide adequate cooling. 
Mishimoto Aluminum Radiator

NGK Iridium Spark Plugs

NGK Spark Plug Wires

Anyway, obviously these aren't all the mods that I'd like to place into the Supra, but just a little bit of the easy stuff. 

Ahem, More to come on Monday... pics of the move.

Life As I Know It

Hello out there, doing a rebuild or JDM engine swap for a 1989 Toyota Supra Turbo with the 7MGTE engine. This is the official documentation of the journey I'm about to embark on...

This is the engine before anything was taken out of the bay at all. Looks pretty rough. This is going to be the "before" picture.

The power steering fluid reservoir is flopping around, this more than likely did not help things when the car was slightly operational.

The belts and pullies were all in pretty good shape, however the radiator was super fucked. I found oil, coolant, and other liquids after I removed it.

The intercooler for the turbo is not in too bad of shape actually.

Everything is so dirty

The cat was helping out.

The turbo was super fucked.
