Ok update head is getting machined ill get pics when i get it back, for the other head sitting there ive got big plans.

How does this wet your whistles,

1MM Ferrea Valves, Titanium Springs, Retainers, etc
Brian Crower 264 Cams (Maybe if i have cash 272cams intake and exhaust)
Ported Head (a serious port job using a flow bench)

I got quoted $1250 for this so gotta get the cash first =D

Sounds great, definately get the Ferrera 1mm oversize valves, I got the Ferrera 1mm + valve on my 3sgte with the 3 angle valve job and it worked great! Definately recommended!

the best way to increase horse is not increasing it.Do the stuff that doesnt cost like stripping the interior since the mk3 are known for the weight.

And also for their comfort ;)

The goal is a 500HP (after engine rebuild) i can drive everyday and be comfy

These cars are highway cars, might as well be comfy while speeding

If we ever meet you need to sit down in my car then youll understand why when most owners could change out the seats we dont =P when i get my head back on i should be seeing upwards 20mpg

Toyota quite possibly made the best seats ever in the world, for MK3 Supra they are like just perfect..

Sounds good, what compression? Forged pistons, I assume?

Oh, and looks like you have it running now? How is it?

(wow! did the rod bolts on that cylinder just give up?)


Im looking to stay around stock 8:4:1. Well i was going to go with new Toyota pistons and rods, but they dont sell them individually :blink: so they insisted i buy a new whole complete short block for the nice price of $2500....yeah SCREW that :Xl: , so im just gonna buy Eagle Rods, and Probe pistons i mean Toyota already forged the 7M stock so itll be just like buying aftermarket stuff at autozone. Shes running good my machinist who im never going to again didnt adjust my valve clearance...dumb ass....so now they are ticking so now i have to do it. Other than that shes got electrical problems normal for a 20yr old car.


and i dont know the history of this motor other than that it had a FUBARD rod cap and missing pistons but id say yeah looks like it came loose.
