what body style comaro do we source the socks from?

There are many ways to go about anything but as far as I'm concerned, doing the 5M/6M-GE swap into the MKI can be quite easy using many '82 5M-GE parts. '82 Supras have so much in common w/ MKI's its unreal. The airvalve set up is identical so I suggest just using the entire '82 upper plenum. You can just port it out to match to the PP lower runners. And for simplicity, I just used the '82 vac advance distributor. When I did the swap in my '80 - I used an '84 P-type motor, but just w/ '82 parts to get it all to work w/ the least amount of fuss. I really didnt expect it to turn out all that great - the MKI isnt that much lighter than the MKII plus loosing some power using the earlier parts (compared to all the '84+ PP parts), but it was really impressive.
Ken - that list kicks ass; great contribution! I've seen this or that part listed over the years so I knew they existed, but its awesome to have a list of part #s w/ prices; good stuff, hopefully someone will sticky this. Considering how well my black PP MKI handles - when you get around to installing all those parts, it should be quite impressive. Still going to need to address the wheel hop issues and stiffen up the car to get the most out of everything. The one thing I cant stand about the pre-'82 celicas and supras is that terrible steering box. Even if you have a tight one or adjust out the slop, the ratio sucks. I believe the key to top rate handling would be converting to rack & pinion... I'm probably going to do this when I build up my next turbo MKI.
Josh, look closer at the box.Hope it fits for you. It say's on the box; Supra MA61
Josh, look closer at the box.
I posted the pic of the part with the box in the background specifically to show that the red dot on the right On the line that reads:
RA/TA 23, 28, 35, 40 '75-'81 761316 [red dot]
Yes, MA45, 46, 47 is not listed...
I discussed this on the first page/ original write up but real quick - they are different - if you run the larger '82+ W series clutch, you'll need the matching flywheel as well. The only real benifit of the MKI clutch set up is that its lighter but it wont take as much power or abuse. It really depends what you're doing w/ the car...Wow, this is the gem I have been searching for but could never find. Tons of great info on the Ma4x OMG im so excited to start working on my PP Ma47 again! I should have it running stock with a w-58 soon.
Im still a n00b when it comes to alot of stuff...I have a w-58 trans, should I get the 5m-ge clutch or does it really matter?
Right now I just want the car to run. All it needs as far as I know is a starter, valve cover gasket, trans and clutch. I could have it running in a weekend. So stock, I could just run the 5m-e set up.
