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. :thumbsup: 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 :zzzzz: 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!

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 :)
:woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

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!

So has been a hectic end of February but March is a new month and is looking a lot more promising. Working two jobs almost 80 hours a week from 830am-11pm is quite a beating on a young buck like myself. At my shop I work at I have been swapping out trannys for all the road construction trucks and it has just been one after another nonstop so no time for my baby :( but all done with those so this week im hoping to get some wrenching done on my own car :). I will update with more pictures and what not asap and look forward to a wiring tuck write up in the near future!

new addition to my 7mgte saga, so after me being in the state of denial and finally opening my radiator cap and seeing the lack of antifreeze and realizing the smoking was my HG I finally replaced it this last weekend :) except as always something horrid happened :( so while i was taking everything apart and I was taking out the rear exhaust cam cap the bolt fell down the oil valley in the far back into the oil pan.....Wanna see me freak out there there you go! I was hitting the oilpan with a wrench and dragging it across the pan with a speaker magnet to get it down into the side so i could pull it out with a long pen magnet and finally got it out after some blood and horid words said to my poor baby haha. I didnt get many pictures cause i was being impatient and just wanted it done but did get one atleast. oh and also i found out while i was taking my turbo off that my turbo seals are bad and just dumping oil down my exhaust. it only has front to back play though no side to side so thats nice :) so new turbo seal kit coming soon with more pictures!
