PostSubject: My Fiancee's Supra Aerotop   Fri 08 Apr 2011, 6:14 am

Right i have some pics of my other halfs supra which is still a work in progress, but it is on course to be finished for the impending summer.

Started life out as a 3ltr non turbo aerotop fresh import from japan. drove it around for a while and a frind of ours (who passed away at 28) owned a twin turbo manual (aerotops are usually auto) so she was hooked. Looked around loads of scrapies and websites and she found a 3ltr TT Auto VVTi, we went down and had a look at it, they said it drove in and it was there due to some logbook cock up it had to be scrapped. we asked about the engine, and running gear to be swapped into her car, the engine alone cost 1000, and i cant remeber the rest.

The engine is in and running fine, intercooler is bolted on as well as the gearbox and propshaft. She also bought the wheels for it and the kit, which is a JDL Tuning wide arch kit, itll look good when its finished and i cant wait to drive it again, im hooked on rear wheel drive. And of course, supras are just sexy bitches, lol




the engine


The wheels
5ZIGEN 5ZR's 19"



How the car stands at the moment




And what the kit will look like properly



And of course it wont be finished until the TOA Decals are put in place, lol Watch this space!!

Looks very clean and well looked after! Are you dropping a 2JZ in there or turbo'ing the current engine?? The kit and wheels arent quite the direction i'd go with a Supra but should hopefully still look sweet! Very Happy Whats the width of the new wheels? Look pretty wide!

the engine is a 2jz gte VVTi The engines they put in the last of the supras before they stopped them, it came out of a 1999 spec. the wheels are 9.5" on the front and 10" on the back. the colour of the car is still a mystery but i think she is going for Honda pirates black (black/purple) found on the MB6 Range. The kit is a subtle wide arch kit, as she was thinking of getting the chargespeed kit until she realised how much it was lol. If your wondering what exhaust shes got, its a blitz nur spec, and yes it set car alarms off hehe

Purple looks AMAZING on Supras. Check out the RSP pearl, genuine Toyota colour and looks shit hot!

Oh, BTW. All aero-tops were autos, except in America... Which makes no sense as most American cars are autos!!
All RHD aero-top manuals were conversions Smile

Are you swapping the engine yourselves? Most manual conversions cost a few grand! Most people sell the autos and buy a manual to save on time and money. Will make a good project though, and you'll have the accomplishment of doing it all yourself Smile

What power are you planning to run? BPU?

The engine can take 700bhp, but I don't think the gear box will. What box are you using?

That's be an uprated autobox. I'm not as knowledgable on the autoboxes as I wanted a manual anyway, but everyone going single on a standard autobox destroys it lol.

Auto is EASIER for dragging as all you have to do is plant your foot, I wouldn't say it was 'better' as such.

Are you having it as twins for now then going single later on?

You won't see 700bhp from twins. 500bhp max. Anytihng over this you're looking at a big single conversion...

Mine is about 450bhp, and for the moment that's plenty of power! Should keep a huge grin on your face for a long time! Very Happy
