    ma67lovers's 7m-gte build **56k Death**

    So short story of my car i bought it when i was 17 painted it for my senior project in high school and i blew the motor a month after i finished painting it so I decided to go big power with an NA 5m build haha then i really thought about that and decided 5m wasnt going to go much of anywhere, after deciding that and fully rebuilding it my friend gave me a 7m that was "seized" so I tore that down and started rebuilding that here and when i was doing that i had that motor almost fully rebuilt i had all the machine work done and what not and i spun a bolt on the connecting rod and after i did that i was so furious i went on the internet and bought a 7mgte from badboysupra and put it on my credit card that same night. that took for ever to get to me so during that i was buying suspension parts like crazy and got most of my suspension done. now its time for pictures!!!
    my car when i first got it

    car after paint job

    you can see the flakes of gold! lol and heres the build for my paint

    thats the 7m that i got for free
    Clutch was pretty rusted it sat out for quite a while

    wiring harness was also chopped on my first 7m and i soldiered over half of it

    spent like 300$ in machine work to a motor i still have sittin in my garage to this day haha

    with arp's

    that looked like crap and wasnt cuttin it for me so i cut it!

    puke in my mouth

    then i screwed up my 7mge and started on my 7mgte, converted it to front sump first


    had to plug the old hole so i used a sr20det flywheel bolt with some epoxy haah

    then something really random i found out is that 82 and 83 supra's have different plugs for their alternators so i had to buy and convert my plug to a later model which is lame as hell!
    82 supra alt plug
    83 up plug

    decided to put a new timing belt on my 7mgte and found out that the back of the timing gear was sheared off and was just tearing away at the belt

    so i had to get a new timing gear to fix that dumb problem so while i was putting all that stuff in i decided to put my fidanze adj cam gears in since my belt was off anyways. i bought them for my 7mge swap because i wanted to cam the hell out of it haha

    rrfpr sort mocked up. dont know if the hood is gonna interfere. Any other suggestions of where i would mount it that would look decent?

    fuel pump installed with relay kit installed also used a 240sx steering rack bushing to hold the pump in because the stock one was way fatter than the walbro.

    reducer for my fuel pump to work

    you can see the new wired from the relay kit

    not sure where will look good to mount it yet but there is my fuel pump relay kit and i do need to clean it back there bad :P

    and oil filter relocation kit installed and ss turbo lines XD

    some other things i have done lately was get my valve covers and intake manifold powder coated removed and blocked off the whole egr system with driftmotions egr block off kit, bought a new master and slave cly and installed a ss clutch line also, i bought and installed ss turbo lines, bought and installed a heat shielding intakemanifold gasket. I will post more pictures of this when photobucket gets ready for me to upload all these pictures and more motor shots and what not im really close to finishing the only things i need to finish right now is to have my wiring converted and for parts to get here that i ordered from 935 motorsports awhile back and my ecu and ic from a fellow member here and that should be here on thursday according to fedex!

    Thumbs up

    So I have been a little lazy when it comes to updating my build so why not throw some extra goodies and pictures in here from what I have been doing


    Got my valve covers all powder coated a while back and got new gaskets and grommets for her and also new bolts because the oem screws piss me off!


    Also got a screaming deal on an amazing divorced down pipe because the wideband bung was welded in the wrong place for most people but works out just fine for me


    Bought a freaking huge intercooler and a nice alum radiator with a shroud and 2 electric fans, next is to cleanly (key word cleanly) wire in a relay for this because toggle switches are for noobs


    I fixed my broken fuel line that was pouring all over!


    I got all new injector seals because prior to first start was just pissing all over the freaking place also!


    new oem O2 sensor so computer will be happy at me


    A little dusty but a pic of my powercoated valve covers


    Sexyness on a shaft! untill i put my other crank pully on this rusty basterd will be on there to help me set timing!


    Going up on the lift to put the exhaust on! sorry was trying to take a picture with it on and dropped and broke my camera haha so no installation pictures! but was the last 3in piping kit from raptor racing and i love it!



    Bought a new aem wideband and going to install her this week


    So right now Im just waiting for a couple other random misc things to top off my supra! bad stuff that has happened lately..... so found out that when i put a bolt back in the rear bracket for the caliper it was the wrong one and was too long and cut a nice slice into my brand new rotor yeah was nice to figure that out. This week I hopefully will fab up some mounts for my radiator and route my intercooler piping and throw some tranny fluid in her and take her for the first drive! so here is how she sits right now all sad and alone at my shop


    and heres an old video just for shits and giggles


    parts keep coming and coming and coming


    and cats keep attacking!
