Not sure really... looking at the pictures... trying to figure out what could have happened...

Throttle body is off, intake manifold off... spark plug wires are out...

My friend came over in the morning to help me pull my head.

Random picture of my cat when i walked into the kitchen looking for breakfast
(IMG:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v436/Cobra281s/My%20Supra/DSCF0068.jpg)

Then had to deal with these stubborn nuts
(IMG:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v436/Cobra281s/My%20Supra/DSCF0060.jpg)

Then finally
(IMG:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v436/Cobra281s/My%20Supra/DSCF0069.jpg)

Look at this perfect gasket
(IMG:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v436/Cobra281s/My%20Supra/DSCF0070.jpg)

Parts all over the floor
(IMG:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v436/Cobra281s/My%20Supra/DSCF0071.jpg)

The head
(IMG:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v436/Cobra281s/My%20Supra/DSCF0072.jpg)

After a hardcore clean up
(IMG:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v436/Cobra281s/My%20Supra/DSCF0076.jpg)

Now just need to reassemble once i get the other head.

Picked up my new gasket and ARP Bolts today. picking up head tommorow.

Since you wanted a video haha, this is the exact day the spark plug blew out along with the helicoil im guessing the previous owner tapped in.

12.5mpg on a good day, but then again my injectors were dripping probably why it was so bad. My friend Steven gets 19-21

Hopefully it will get better when i get the other head on.

N/A Get 21-24
Turbo Get 19-21 best ive seen on a stock turbo was around 28 HWY.

Go MK3 man youll never look back.

I got Auto because of all the cars i looked at it was the only one that wasnt a complete pile of poo ;D . Everyone who wants a MK3 wants a 5spd and the 89-92 Body Style which is the reason most of those are beat to hell and back. Ill be doing a 5spd swap myself in the future.


Alright Mike just IM when you get on.

Well I like Pre89's better and this car had a clean history and its real clean. Plus I don't trust driving a used Supra more than 300miles without me doing maintence on it. I respect the VG good motor just don't like working on them. Inline 6's are just easier and they are better balanced for power. You know this to be true with Nissans L Series motors, and the famed RB

Well getting the head while its in the car getting the parts off isnt so hard, just remember where the plugs to and vacuum lines etc. I needed three people to lift it off and just two people to carry it into the house that thing is heavy :lol:
