Any MKIII supra owners around?

I should be getting a MKIII supra over the next couple of weeks (shipped from across the country) and I'm just wondering if anyone else here owns a MKIII and knows any good resources for them?

I've found supraforums so far, but not much else just yet.

Also any recommended things for me to do with it when I get it?

I know so far to replace the headgasket asap, but anything else?

Thanks

I used to own one, an 89 NA auto. It had been ragged out all its life and sat in a yard for 5-6 months but overall physically it was a sharp car. I put 4k miles on it before i got got rod knock... damn bearings. Best thing I could recommend would be a 1jz/2jz swap if your looking for alot of good power, the 7m's don't have too good a reputation, and the turbos usually need attention around 80k miles and of course the headgaskets. Also the damn valve covers are prone to leak, they are held on by screws and over time they work their way loose, you can replace them with bolts and lock washers though. I had a friend with a built 7m, bottom end and head, sheetmetal intake and bigger turbo, the works, ended up melting a few pistons and a ****ed up gearbox. Supra forums is a great site though to learn though man, just read your ass off.

I want to get this one http://www.cineaction.co.jp/japanese...i?did=10015467

Directly copied from my supraforums post in late august

Along with everything else. We now have a perfectly running 87' n/a with everything working perfectly except for the (nonexistent for now) stereo.


A little spot wetsanding to fix a few clearcoat runs

Uhh, yeah the clip for the front mudguards kinda broke....

Yes, we put the turbo spoiler on it. What can I say, it looks good to me

Oh shiiiit overspray!

Sooo nice to actually be able to drive this car after working on it for most of the summer . I <3 this car.

Now I gotta ask my dad which car he wants to keep at home and which I get for school. Its between this and my accord (shh you guys, I like my honda too, and its faster than this :-p)
