 After owning an unreliable domestic for 5 years, which was a Dodge neon srt4 with every bolt on you could buy,  which was so damn unreliable. I would literally try to baby it and something would break, even on the day i sold it the alternator fried as someone came to look at it, it literally drove me to find an actual reliable sports car and stay away from domestics at all costs.

I began my research and first tried to import a 1998 subaru sti ra, even with a good job and some good assests no bank would loan me money for a car that was so old and coming from a different country.

So i needed to figure something out. I came to the conclusion that i needed cash on hand and i needed the money within one year was my plan.

First i did research on different cars to see what that ultimate goal was, i was first looking into subarus and evos, but after more research i realized that they are somewhat limited on potential without strengthing the engine and trannys, people were saying how subaru engines dont respond that well to mods, you need a tune just to put on an intake? .

Next i looked into skylines my friend had a 1989 gtr and i almost bought it off him, talking more with him decided not too. Parts seem pretty expensive and harder to find.

I then looked into Supras i really liked the look the curves and it looks great from every angle, the cockpit is nice too,  also i was very impressed to see the potential of the engine without modifications needed and the strength of the trannys is so impressive. I came to my choice of car now how much will this cost me figured id need 20 to 25 grand which i was no where near.

And if i was getting a supra it had to be silver had to be 6 speed and had to be twin turbo.

Also had just purchased my house on may 10, which was the agreement between me and my gf, house first Supra second.

I contacted Brian at b pro auto and he said he has a project supra in silver his project car. That needed a little tlc and would fix it all for me for 23 grand, i told him i only had 20 grand so if he could fix the valve stem seals for me then id worry about the rest and take it. He agreed. Final cost was 19,600.00. And he covered the shipping cost because i hooked him up with a sale, my gfs dad had a bmw z3 being shipped as we negotiated on the final price.

Now the other flaws on the car were leaking power steering pump, cracked side skirt, cracked rear spat, rear shocks are worn, rear tints peeling,  paint is bad in some spots mainly front bumper is faded.

I waited about a month for the car to come from brians to winnipeg, i was out of town when it came, so my gfs dad went and got it for me and parked it in my driveway for when i got home.

Got home fired it up safetied the next day power steering pump fixed.

The car came with:
- Turbo timer
- HKS bov
- Greddy Profec boost controller
- 17 inch core racing rims
- TRD exhaust
- Aftermarket Intake
- Whifbitz 4inch 3 row BFMIC

My first plans for the car are a new wideband and a big single turbo, clear turn signals. Ill be cleaning up the faded jdm headlights too.

This will be a work in progress exterior stuff and dress up parts will come last.

Car is a 1994 Totota supra RZ

      Was bored when i was out of town one day, so decided to swing by an audio store, and got a deal on new front and rear Alpines, Old speakers came out and they were toast, cones had gone on front and rears. Sound improved a lot just lacking some good deep bass.

      Also used k@N filter cleaner on my intake filter, got an oil change, and went for a tranny flush, was told tranny fluid is perfect and would be a waste of money.

            I had my motor and turbos checked out, compression is perfect, motor is in fantastic mechanical condition. No oil leaks or tranny leaks, fresh spark plugs and has a new water pump. Unfortunately turbo # 2 is seized which isnt a huge deal, plans to go single. and there is no sensor for the wideband.

            Purchased a new wideband today, and found a great single turbo kit i will purchase from suprastore.com this May.

                  Decided on this kit.
                  Shirt size lol, but seriously, the turbos range from .58 up to .96, so did you get .96?

                    Heres some shots of the cracks on the rear spat and the sideskirt, these will be fixed last on the car.

                      Interior is not bad, steering wheel is a bit rough, seats are a bit ugly too basic, No rips in rear seats or front seats, no scratches on interior trim just a little faded from the sunlight.
                      I would like to update the steering wheel, drivers seat, shift boot.

                          Sanded and polished headlights, look a lot better.

                          Picture doesent do much justice.

                              JL amp and a JL sub and custom box, system sounds amazing and sits perfectly in the rear hatch. Car was already wired from previous owner and a pioneer deck came with the car.

                                  The 4" downpipe won't fit the RHD cars. (at least not without a ton of alterations.)  Also can pretty much guarantee the oil drain hose won't fit. - they never do.
