1989 Twin Turbo 1JZ-GTE Toyota Supra
The paint is 100% custom. No color code, it has some crazy pearl in it so in different light it kinda almost has a real deep olive green to it, which SOUNDS bad but looks REALLY good.
I call the color Stephanite Pearl Metallic (Stephanite is a mineral that i thought looked pretty close)
My new XXR 502's above along with smoked tails/markers.
MORE PICS OF NEW PAINT/WORK ON PAGE 2.
Swapped NA 7MGE to 1jz (76913km/47791 miles)
7 Color LED's replaced the old neon
The above pic is with the old paint and decals (high school phase) which of course i stripped down and left clean. those tiny rims (Superior 16"s) are currently my winter wheels with snow tires which lowers it even further basically making it a snow plow haha.
A-pilar and gauges
The 1JZ just before I put it in and the donor clip and old motor/tranny.
ABOUT THE CLIP Full front clip RHD 1JZ Twin Turbo 5 Speed. The clip came with full dash with gauge cluster mine=47791 miles).
Some benifits of the 1jzgte -IC pipe routing and intake manifold design are improved, this was built as a turbo engine from the ground up. -Uses a MAP sensor based air/fuel setup -7000 RPM redline, 7200 rev limit -Stock turbos have little to no lag, very smooth powerband -Headgasket and all other gaskets are metal -Headwork was improved -Uses seperate coil packs for each plug, no plug wires. -There are many other things I cannot confirm, rumored to have forged pistons stock, ECU is supposed to be far superior. -These engines can handle 500hp with all STOCK internals.

- 1JZ-GTE Swap (FULL ENGINE trans. swap ECU wiring harness etc...) - I'm shooting for about 400whp- Walbro Fuel Pump 255 LPH- Car runs on a set of staggered 18" XXR 502's 8.5 front, 9.5 rear. Nankang NS-II's 235/35/18 and 265/35/18- Adjustable JIC Suspension Project Coilovers- Oversized High Flow Godspeed Aluminum Radiator- The brakes/calipers/rotors have been detailed red w/ black Supra name.- Ractive Exhaust (soon to be RIPPED off and replaced)- Full undercarriage LED kit (7 different colors with programable function)- Sony 10disc changer and tape/FM/AM/MP3.- Rockford Fosgate P1 12" in Ported Rockford Box- Rockford Fosgate Prime Amp- New larger custom fitted door Speakers- Power Seats- Power Mirrors- Power Windows- Power Locks- Cruise Control- Climate Control/AC- Rear Defroster- 2 Alarms (stock) and below- Audiovox alarm that pulses LED with 'panic' and ARM/DISARM - CUSTOM decals (REMOVED :D)- Spectre Air Intake- Mobile Phone Hookup w/hands free mic.- Boost Controller.
Over all I think it's a pretty clean/decent MKIII. It's definitely come A LONG way and it's nowhere near perfect.
These are how it was for a good few years. i do at sometimes miss the rare Mahogony Pearl. I sure dont miss the decals haha. I did like the Racinghart wheels but they have a another supra using them.
