I just got my tax return, and Im going to spend $200 on my Supra. What do you think would be the best thing to buy? I have an 82 5mge, air intake, stock everything else, about 145k on the engine.

I agree with Jim.

Here are some areas to consider:
- All maintenance items.
- Shocks/springs/strut bar/sways.
- Wheels/tires.
- Intake/Exhaust
- Turbo kit

Yeah, my state return is getting spent on a rear hatch. I found a nice one, and mine is _very_ embarassing... The whole back rusted off, and the previous owner screwed a piece of plastic on it! I took the plastic off, but there is a huge hole and it doesnt seal. Other than that, the body is decent. Shocks are probably coming next- as mentioned above about the tokico's, how much is a set of all four and where can I get them?

I'd do exhaust next if I were you, match that imporved intake flow and get some more power. This can be done for under $200, if you don't mind it loud.

200 to spend

I would go for low restriction air filter, and handling mods/maintinance.
If it wallows thru the curves it doesn't matter how much power it has.......

I was actually planning on making my own strut bars. I have a friend with access to the machines required, and I think making my own would probably be cheaper than buying/shipping one. Anyone ever done this before?

Most rear strut bars are do it yourself...there are several styles. Mine bolts to the top of the shocks and works very well.
