    No More WRX :(

    I haven't been on the forums in awhile but I traded my car in a little over a month ago for something different. The WRX was a great car but it was very bi-polar... One day shifting would be perfectly smooth the next day it would get extremely notchy. Anyway, I've been searching for a different car for quite some time because I just wanted something else. I looked at the Exige, 370z, M3, etc. but I couldn't really choose just one. I actually wanted an Evo X before my Subie LOL. So after a year and a half of searching I found my car...
































    After driving the Supra for awhile, I definitely love it more than any car I've driven. I do miss the low end torque but it's top end seriously makes up for it. I'll be daily driving this and even driving it in the snow. A car isn't bought to just sit in the garage...

    I've also had the mod bug more so than when I had the WRX. I'm usually on a forum during my free time looking for parts LOL, but I do have some goals for the future. I want to retain twin turbos in the car and go with some larger aftermarket ones in the future. Now I just need to find time to take off that stupid little 'Turbo' badge on the rear...

    Current Mod List
    HKS Superdrager Exhaust.
    RMM Downpipe.
    Manual Boost Controller.
    LED License Plate Lights.
    6000K HID Lowbeam Bulbs.

    Uninstalled
    Dunlop Winter Tires.
    Front Lip.
    Apex-I SAFC.
    Greddy Turbo Timer.
    Shifter Bushings.
    RP Synchromax.
    NGK 4644 Spark Plugs.
    Intake.
    Hawk HPS Brake Pads.
    Anarchy Motive Shift Knob.
    Gates Timing Belt.

    Nice Supra! I still can't believe how much they are still going for, anywhere from 25-100k dollars for an almost 20 year old car! How many miles do you have on her?

    That is an interesting choice. How many miles on it? Does it still have the stock turbos?

    I must say, I have always loved the Supra (even before I had seen F&F), and I do plan on building one up when my schooling is done and I have a stable job. I think it's a great choice and you're gonna have a TON of fun with it! Best of luck and enjoy your beastly gem of a car!

    Thanks. This is actually a higher mileage car but is in almost perfect condition and runs great. I just got the Greddy Boost Cut Controller in the mail today. It was suppose to be delivered 4 days ago but the post office thought it was a bomb or something... I've been looking at Cams and an Intercooler, but I want to take care of the suspension and getting the front lip painted/installed ASAP. My only problems with the Supra are the squealing brakes and crappy suspension. That's not too much for such an old car. Although, once the second turbo dies on me I'll definitely have to upgrade which is why I don't want to spend money now haha.



    These are just some of the parts. Everything else is in the garage taking space LOL. The Greddy Turbo Timer was really cheap and it looks to be in great condition. It was basically the same price as the K&N Filter. I'm tempted to buy a double din Kenwood DDX470 headunit and upgrading the front speakers from 4'' to 6.5'' like the rears. I've also been looking at getting a boost gauge but the seller hasn't gotten back to me in a few days.

    And yes, the feline is also a driver mod as well. She rides shotgun with her brother.

    Congrats on the new ride. She looks awesome, but when I read she'll be driven in the salt, I cringed a bit.
