:zzzzz: Hello all! New member in Dallas here. Little bit about me, Ive worked as a mechanic for VW before, and ive worked on cars most of my life as a hobby. Im a pro tattoo artist now by profession and this is strictly a hobby now and a lifestyle. HA. 80s Japanese Sportscars FTW!



I scored an 84 P type Automatic for $800 dollars the Day after Christmas at a Charity Car Auction here in Dallas.. Im not sure if its had an upgrade to the 6MGE or if its still a 5MGE.
The motor has definitely had the bottom of it replaced, and I cant tell the difference just by looking. I don't have a vacuum fluid pump to check the volume of the cylinders or I would do that. Its definitely fast for an 84 Automatic....
Ive owned an 88 300zx Turbo before, and ive owned a 92 Corrado Vr6 Before. I already love the Supra more than either one of those cars.

Im just hoping to meet some more people who love Mk2 Supras like me, and educate myself as to every nut and bolt of this car.


I have some pictures of it I am in the process of uploading.

First thing I did was replace the exhaust system as the Cat was semi clogged, and the muffler and pipe had so many holes in it, it didnt even sound like it leaked.
I replaced it with a Dual Chamber Thrush Welded
Tell me what yall think of the exhaust sound.

Pictures of me getting as it sat from the auction lot and us changing tires, and pictures of it cleaned. The interior is just as pretty, Ill take some pics of that soon.

Interior is in amazing shape other than the infamous clicking in the dash, and wear on the drivers seat and arm rest in the middle of the car. Carpets, dash, headliner is in GREAT shape. All gauges work. I'll take some pictures tomorrow and post them.

Thanks im glad to be here. I was happy with the way it cleaned up. You swapping out your 7mge? hmm.. you interested in selling it? I cant decide if I wanna turbo my car or not. I was thinking of going with a w58 over the r154 and putting a weber on it to try and keep it NON electrical as possible. Although, These cars are alot easier to work on than Z cars, I might go turbo. Im just driving it as it is and enjoying it for now. I should determine if my car has a 5mge or a 6mge in it before proceeding further.

LOL.. i bet you could.. I would need a tranny too cause I have the "Slush Box" Auto.
I can do the swap myself, as I have a full garage at my house with more tools than the average bear, and a close friend who used to work on NHRA Top Fuel cars to help me. Although im sure id have several questions. HA.
