        Not Yet, but when that happens I'm going to drive it until catastrophic failure occurs and runs it straight into a wall.

            Installed my Cobb air box today. Quiets the intake down just enough to not be overly loud anymore
            It will never have enough power until I can spin all four wheels at the end of the straightaway in high gear.

              Installed spark plugs. The old ones were in good shape, no bad wear indications.  :)

                          pretty good so far, gotta do the bushings next, just ran out of time. Looked at where they are and I don't look forward to that job either.

                            Ran new 1/0 power cable from alt to batt in trunk. Its a lot harder when theres a box in the car already and you have to pull the new cable under it. Also worked on the amp rack in the trunk, I hope I finish by this sunday.

                                I thought about it, but I could see how cracked and chewed up my stock bushings already are

                                    Dropped my Supra off at speedfactor, for a single turbo install, ordered some v band clamps and a jdm front cat delete downpipe.

                                            Hardest part was getting the clutch pedal mounted and dealing with the pilot bushing. Took about 2 weeks of tinkering a few hours a day. Did it solo, without a hoist. If you can change a clutch, you can do this.
