2 Turbos Spoolin' Got Boost?

88 supras [12 Jun 2006|06:22pm]

Hi. I'm having a problem with my 88 supra turbo's electrical system.

The chassis ground is reading 12 volts, so that means there's a short, right?

I can get the short to go away, only when I unplug about 7 different fuses and the alternator.

Does this mean I have seven different short circuits? Or is there one main one that is causing the problem?

Does anybody know?? Please help!

Thank you! :)

DAMN YOU FAST AND THE FURIOUS!!!! [22 May 2006|09:38pm]

[ mood | Pissed and ready to KILL!! ]

This is relly pissin me off. These assholes are making a movie about drifting and they dont even know what it is. Drifting is NOT trying to LOSE CONTROL!!!!! It is an art of sending you REAR-WHEEL DRIVE car into a CONTROLLED OVERSTEER and seeing it through a turn safley with no damage. But then the part that REALLY pisses me off. These assholes have been buying supras, doing stupid ass shit in them, then stupid people go and buy our cars that we've dreamed of our whole lives and sit there and say "OH! im gonna buy a supa cus fast an' da furios got them! DUH!" and do stupid shit in them and then wrap them around trees! then there like "NO WAY! dat no happen in fast an da furios! it musta been a bad car!ill get anoter one!" And so i can't find one of my dreamed of oh so sweet 1997 Toyota Supra RZ's that I have for such time longed for and of only few thousands were made!


And just for the record, any performance parts I would EVER put into a supra would be Tom's or TRD. Period.

Hey guys... [10 May 2006|09:37pm]

Let me be the first to post in a loooooooonnnnnng time, with a picture.
I was bored one day, so I decided, why not mix my two favorite thins, Metroid and Supra's? Here are the results.

2 Turbos Spoolin' Got Boost?

[ mood | okay ]

Hey I finally got pics of my Tercel. They arent that great right now, and I would take more, but due to the lack of batteries, these will have to work for now.

TRD T-Cel!!!Collapse )

A cop left a note on it the other day saying that I cant park on the grass, so I had to move it to the driveway. It runs and everything, but its not registered (but that hasnt stopped me from taking it out lately). I am gonna try to register it within a week. Next time i'll include a pic of my custom tach mounting (barely visible in the 6th shot down (little bit of chrome on left side of steering wheel)).

In the 4th pic down, you may or may not notice it, but the rear tires are wider than the front. When I got the car, it had 155/75R13s on all four corners. The rears were in desperate need of replacing, but where I went didnt have those size tires. They did, however, have 175/75R13s. So those are on the back and I still have 155/75R13s up front. Still need 4 new tires hahah. Along with brakes, axles, struts, exhaust manifold gasket and donut, and to fix an oil leak. BUT not bad for 400 bucks haha.


PS: I decided that I am going to do this simple grill transformation. The mesh will be temp till I get the 4E and then the mesh will be replaced by an innercooler =D. But while I have the mesh, I'm gonna get a little TRD badge and mount it in the lower, drivers side of the grill.


EDIT: The other night I was driving on a windy road and lost control of my Tercel. I went through a barbwire fence, took out a t-post, and then found myself in the dirt. I started the car again, put it in reverse to back through the fence and fell into a 2 foot deep ditch. Luckily my car still runs, didtn have a flat or anything. The only thing is I REALLY need to repaint it now. There are scratches, DEEP ones, all over the car >_<. TRD Tercel = Tank haha

Hi, I'm Katie and from Australia...

I had never seen a Supra until i went car hunting a few weeks ago with my boy... his dream car is a Supra and we found just what he wanted and he bought it! It is SO HOT!!!!
We took it to the coast this past and i just love being a passenger in it... cause of course he won't let me drive it... lol :P :P

My boy's SupraCollapse )

Sorry they are so big...
It is a 1993 model i think, or 1994... manual and has an awesome sound system in it. It is probably not as flash as some but he loves it, just what he wanted and now i have fallen in love the Supra too!!!!
I spot them all over the place now and text him every time i see one... lol :P :P

14 Turbos Spoolin' Got Boost?

[11 May 2005|01:55pm]

My Tercel is down due to a bad voltage regulator. @#$!%&!

So...I have checked autozone and napa and havent been able to find just the voltage regulator. SO....this means that I need to buy a whole new alternator (turns out mine is stock...haha. it served well after 13 years).

Once I get it running (hopefully I find a job soon as well) I am gonna register it and get some insurance, then buy 4 all new tires, a timing belt, and perform a full blown tune up (plugs, wires, fuel filter, air filter, oil change, oil filter, transmission flush, the whole nine yards.

I printed up Toyota paint codes for 1991...now I just need to find out what color it actually is, then after I have my roll bar put in, have it sprayed with a fresh coat of paint.

I got ahold of a guy who goes by Dr Tweak who works at Pheonix Tuning, based out of Vermont. He is going to help me get a 4E-FTE to drop in the Tercel.

My school's annual drag racing day at California Speedway is this saturday...but sadly, the Tercel wont be unleashed on all the Hondas and ricers that go to my school. That will be a future date haha.

I'm pretty bummed that my Toyota isnt running...but it will be soon (that is once I get 100 bucks for a new alternator haha). Anywho...hope you all have a good one!

Project: T-Cel [07 Apr 2005|09:16am]

[ mood | crazy ]

Hey everyone. I decided to make a post about my 1991 Tercel. Turns out it needs some money put into it. It needs 2 new front axles, valve cover gasket, brakes, tires, suspension (hah that was my fault...), a thermostat, and a radiator fan relay. I could also use an oil change, new oil filter, air filter, spark plugs and wires, and maybe some injector cleaner. All's well though.

Project T-Cel has begun.

I will post pics along the way of the making of So. Cal's fastest and quickest Toyota Tercel. I have already stripped out the interior (all except headliner, door panels, seats, and dash) and am considering getting a roll bar put in till I get the money for a full cage (but the cage won't come till the engine swap).

Yup engine swap. People often tell me, 'Why? It's a Tercel.' Well...yeah, but who would really expect a Tercel to be turbocharged and intercooled (plus after all the mods and stuff, be running nearly 400HP).

On Wednesday around 2pm, I was headed to Jose's house to stay the night. I was driving west on the 60 when I suddenly heard someone revving a really obnoxious sounding car. Jose said it was next to us and 1 car back. I glance back and there were 2 Civic hatches (they were riced, but they at least made the body look good and stuff). They suddenly blazed past me and Jose, flipping us off. Now normally i'm a nice guy...if someone flips me off, I dont care. But this was the Tercel's time to shine. I turned on my blinker and flew over 2 lanes to an open lane. I quickly downshifted into 3rd gear (heh I have a whopping 4 gears) and dropped the hammer. I quickly passed both Civics up doing about 103mph. I look in my mirror and the Civics, instead of trying to catch up to me (the lanes around me were empty), merged into a lane with a lot of traffic. It was the highlight of my day.

Once I do the 4E-FTE swap in the Tercel, i'm not gonna put some loud and annoying exhaust on my car, or put crappy altezza lights, or lame ass neon, no. I'm gonna get slightly wider (and taller) rims, black. I'm gonna get some Falken Azenis RT-215's, Sparco seats, and I have yet to decide what brand 4-point seatbelts. I also plan on doing engine mods (my 'unoffical' girlfriend's dad owns a machine shop. score!), turbo upgrades, intercooler upgrade, fuel injection upgrade, and a whole lot more.

But body wise, i'm gonna get a new coat of the current (and factory) color. I'm not sure of the name of the color, but its a faded green color, and I'm gonna tint the windows. My goal with the Tercel is to make it a sleeper (and one heck of a sleeper too).

Like I said, I have pics to post (they are at home >_<), and I will post pics along the course of the Tercel's transformation.

Oh and the Tercel has 160,560 miles on it. Not bad I guess. Well, i'm out. See yas


EDIT: Oh I also created a custom logo I'm gonna have made into a diecut sticker for the back window when the modding is all done. I'll scan it at home and post it here =)

My bf has a direct connection to Konig. He can get Konig rewinds of 14 and 15. Also he can get several other rims. He can get all of these for a very cheap cost. Let me know if you are interested.

[17 Mar 2005|06:39am]

Its finally mine!!! WHOO!!!! I just bought my best friend Chris' 1991 Toyota Tercel. I love it ^_^. I'll get pics posted as soon as I can. I have a lot of plans for it including the 4AGE engine swap and perhaps convert it to right hand drive. Yup yup. Once I get the swap the TRD badge will have true meaning haha.

I raced a Civic today on the way to school. He started the race...and ended it. In last. Hah. Yeah it was cool. I jumped it on the way out of work (I got layed off and so I hauled a$$ out of the parking lot), and yeah thats about the extent of what I have dont with it so far. I need to register it and insure it (driving right now is scary). Well I hope you are all having fun with your Toyotas =D

[ mood | blah ]

Hey everyone. I just got myself a 1991 Tercel coupe. I got (well, will be getting) it from my friend Chris. It has the stock 3E-E in it, but I have some plans for an engine swap (I forget the code but its from a Starlet GT). This car is an absolute BEAST haha. We have mobbed it, jumped it, tried driving it into the ground, and it still carries on like a trooper. Such an awesome car. The color is the green color you see often on Tercels, has no hub-caps (black outs rock!), and the Toyota on the rear, passenger side of the car has been taken off and replaced with a TRD logo (purchased on eBay hah). I plan on doing some work to it (full roll cage, Sparcos, 4 point seat belts, wider tires, exhaust, the works) as soon as I get it.

My friend Chris who is selling me the Tercel aka T-Cel has recently purchased a 1988 MK3 Supra Turbo. Sadly, it needs a new engine (not the works of him but the previous owner), so the money he will be getting from me for the T-Cel will be going into a new engine for the MK3. Right now its about to throw a rod. He told me the other day he said 'Screw it' and raced a car going home from school. Now, the stock turbo on his 7M-GTE is supposed to just be putting out 5.5 pounds of boost. He said during the race it hit 8 pounds. I thought that was pretty crazy.

Well I will post this now. Laters!

Just joined up! [08 Dec 2004|08:05am]

[ mood | groggy ]

Hi, my name is Wayne. I own a 5th Gen 1993 Toyota Celica GT. She's got Autolife Platinum tipped spark plugs in (will upgrade to NGK Iridium, but not Desno's cause she aint a Turbo....yet), a K&N Oil Filter, got some new tires til I can afford some nice rims, and installed some SilverStar headlights into her too. I plan on changing out the current Ignition wires with some Thundersport's, replacing the current Distributor Cap and Rotor for some made by Bosch. Future plans also include replacing the front bumper with either a Erebuni or Shogun style front, getting new suspension, a strut bar, and changing out the current intake and exhaust system. I dunno if I'd be getting lowering springs, cause she's low enough, but we'll see. Its a good project that'll look nice when its ALL done....whenever that happens x_X

Hello, my name's Frank and I found this community through the "Interests" section of LJ. I own a 1985 Corolla GT-S and am a Toyota enthusiast. Dunno why exactly I joined up, but I guess that can be attributed to my enthusiasim for Toyotas.

My car is still in the "Planning" stage (i.e. paying it off), but I will hopefully be able to turn up the heat on my little AE86 by next year.


I need to add some of the newer pics I've taken. Currently working on a set of cam covers (from hell). Maybe I'll take a couple of drift pics when the snow hits me this winter.

my name is Lindsay...I'm 23. I just ran across this community because I went looking for all things Supra. We (my boyfriend and I) are selling our Supra TONIGHT. And I am heart broken. It's a 93.5, Baltic Blue. We went single with a T78. We have done a shit load to this car. Last year I was due to have my baby in 2 weeks, and there I was, bending over with a huge tummy, cleaning under the hood of the Supra! I love this car, and just thinking about selling it brings tears. I have encouraged and helped Kevin with everything we have done, and I know just as much as all the big Supra boys do! Anyway, thanks for your time.

no relation to Toyotas [03 Aug 2004|05:53pm]

[ mood | bitchy ]

Hey everyone. This isnt directly connected to Toyotas... but if any of you ever get a Mustang, or know someone that has or is getting one, tell them not to take it to AMP in Pheonix, AZ.


They screw costumers over all the time, and the link will take you to a forum where a dude in the military tells the tale of how AMP messed up his engine, wouldnt give him a refund, did stuff without his permission, then gave him the car unfinished. Me and Mike (mk4s_rock) were joking around about how we should put APC out of business... Hey Mike, this AMP place should be our first target.

Post the link if you are part of Mustang communities or have a friend that is. AMP must be put to a stop. Thanks everyone
