1989 Toyota Supra Turbo
Bought the car back in Febuary while I was still in Iraq from a dude from Florida. Slapt some wheels and brakes on it now its time to re do the engine. Slight knoking sound coming from the engine. Possible craked piston.
Wiseco .40 over 10-1 pistons, Eagle rods, 1200cc Injectors, T76 Turbocharger, AEM EMS, etc.
After installing the AEM EMS and raising the boost, I went out for a drive and ran into an SRT4 with a lot of money and a bad driver.
The SRT4 was fast but the driver was not making full use of the power band. Me and the Supra won everytime but the stress of the raised boost and higher power eat the clutch. So I decided to start the teardown and rebuild.
Turns out that is was rod bearing #4.
So the time came to put all the pieces together.
There is also a light weight flywheel that is not shown, the turbo is a T72 and the injectors are RC 1000cc. I reedid the wiring and refurbished the transmition. All work was done by myself except the machining. The ebay manifold i got gave me issues with the turbo so i had to fabricate a 2" spacer out of a pair of 1" steel plates. I removed the MULTIPLEX and changed to a 2JZ igniter. Re-wired to fully sequential injection. Also had a hard time with the oil return for the turbo due to clearance.
There is still a lot of work that needs to be done.
Finally got a can on the damm thing and started to tune. But will not be able to work on it due to the fact that there is water going into the pistons due to the fact that I did not want to spend money on decking the blockand the machine shop told me that it was good to go. So now I will take the engine out some time in spring and finish up all loose ends and finish all the small details. Looking for somewhere around 700RWHP.
AND YES THE PISTONS ARE 10.5-1.
Some time later.....................................
I disected the engine one more time an as we can see cyinder #3 wasnt doing so good. Also we see compression leaks from 1-2-3 and 4-5. This is due to the block mating surface not being resurfaced. The machine shop that I took it to assured me that it was good to go. I learned to never trust anybody when it comes to my car and the checks that I myself could have done. But wait there is more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
