    Mine says MA67 on the radiator support panel, but MA61 on the vehicle compliance plate.

    Model - MA61R-BLMQEQ
    Frame - MA61-0101109
    I'm too lazy to type long replies.

    I am new to the Supra world and have one quick question. is there a breakdown somewhere that would tell me how many 1985 supras were built with blue interior silver paint and automatic transmission? (not my exact specs but you get the idea)

    No.......

    Unlike the domestic world, the year & different model specifics information is not available to us. If there are records out there, Toyota is pretty tight lipped about it.

    Years ago, someone did post a chart of the "total car sales" in North America from 79 - 98, but nothing else. As for deeper specifics.... nada...

    Despite the constant physical and--judging by the twitchy, panicked expression--mental punishment inflicted on him by Dr. Bunsen Honeydew窶冱 experiments, Beaker keeps coming back for more. Clearly the Jackass crew grew up ingesting a healthy dose of these Muppet Show regulars.

    In my car I am sure it reads 'W57 F303'. What does this mean to my gearbox & my diff ratio. I am sure that it is an LSD.

    It means you have a W57 5-speed transmission and an 7.5" 3.73 LSD differential.

    I went back to the garage where my car is being worked on, last night. The plate is not easy to read & I may have got some of the alphabets wrong:

    MODEL: MA61R-BLMO?Q?FN
    ENGINE: 5M-GE 2759cc
    CHASSIS: MA61-0109160
    COLOUR: 301 YS24
    GVM/BVM: BLANK
    GCM/BKM: BLANK
    JOB: 3061
    GA/BA FRONT: W?M?N?57 F3 03
    GA/BA REAR: BLANK

    I can't transalate some of this. My concern is that I have not heard of a W57 box before. Will it handle my 7MGTE conversion? If my diff ratio is 3.73, is the common ratio not 4.3? If what I read is correct, does this mean that I will not have to change the diff, as the 3.73 is long enough for the 7MGTE & therefore the correct diff to use?
