Ok so at the start of summer 2003 My Alternator Died with it so did my Supra for the moment though. So I started Working my Ass off to get enough money to do some major work to it.
So my car sat in the parking lot for 4 months. Finally I said forget fixing my tired 5mge at a miserable 130hp from old age.
So I Went ahead and bought a JDM 3.0 6MGE, Producing a cool 190hp, I also bought a RabidChimp Intake with K&N cone filter, as you can see from the picture. The trademark of a 6MGE is the 3000 on the Intake plenum
I also bought a ACT Clutch Kit Stage One, and since my old alternator at a punny 55 amp, wasn't enough to keep my electronics and Stereo System operational I decided to get a beafier Alternator from a 88 Automatic Supra Turbo making 80 amps, its a big diffrence. I also had the rack and pinion and the tie rods replaced as well since they were removing the engine so I could get all that with the same labor costs.
Those upgrades costed me about 1800 dollars, and then the labor to put all that in was about 1050 dollars, I went ahead and did the Intake and Filter and I also clean out the Throttle body it was very dirty.
Just recently I bought a brand new radiator.
Well I just ordered my New suspension from Aaron at www.Rabidchimp.com. Well I order my KYB AGX 4 way adjustable shocks and KYB AGX 8 way adjustable struts, Super Pro Polyurethne Bushing set. I also order the Cusco camber plates.
I also ordered from 935motorsports.com my Ground Control Front Coilover set with 350lb/in springs, and I also ordered my Rear Addco sway bar from him. I also ordered a set of Dobsons standar height rear springs from Raptor Racing. I also order a Whiteline 3 way adjustable sway bar and the rear subframe bushing from Raptor racing aswell.
As of January 08 I have the KYB AGX on all 4 corners, I put the dobsons rear springs on aswell. I also put my cusco camber plates on and I also have a LJM strut tower bar and finally I put on the addco rear sway bar. I still haven't put on my front whiteline bar. I decided it was too much of a hassle to put on the coilovers and currently have the stock springs in there, but I'm working on getting some lowering springs. I want to thank my friend Robert who helped me put on my suspension parts on, he is the owner of a 650 HP 84 Supra.
I also bought some spectre piping and made a cold air intake. And recently order my magnaflow muffler that will accompany my new 3in exhuast and pacesetter header. I already have the pacesetter header just waiting on the muffler and the header wrap, and some money to put everything together.
