On the fence about single, if I do it will probably be a 6266 kit that I can grow into...start out low boost on stock fuel and ECU.

Took some shots around the house, one thing has become clear...I am not nearly skilled enough to take care of the original black paint...its obviously been polished before but I've managed to add some swirls to the paint in my ham fisted care...I'm seriously considering having it professionally polished then doing a full body PPF like XPEL so I can protect the paint and also ease cleaning/care.

I'd advise against film if you want clarity and swirl free. But then I've kept Jet Black and Sapphire Black swirl free for years.

Just got the Supra back from Freed Engineering. The car had several 'ninja issues', the turn signal system stopped working, the car was blowing smoke on cold start and the turbos seemed really noisy at lower RPMs. Plus I wanted a professional leak down and compression check done so I decided to take her in!

Well...I had three different leaks in the coolant system, a bad water pump seal, a completely compromised hose to the stock surge valve, a missing vacuum hose to one of the waste gates and a bunch of bad connections in my fuse box. On top of that I had them address the old corroded battery terminals, upgrade the radiator hose to a Titan Motorsports elbow and extract the stripped screws on the rear lower hatch stops so I could throw in the new ones I had ordered.

WOW! All these issues were present when I bought the car so I just assumed that's how the car ran! The motor runs like a top now, the car doesn't feel like a dog in lower RPMs and has a much smoother transition to boost, the stock auto seemed to be much more lively and appropriate with gear selection based on throttle position, no more smoke, turn signals work and best of all...about an 80% reduction in interior squeaking/rattling noises
Needless to say I'm very pleased!

Love this build. I’m half tempted to say “keep it stock!!!” Just because every Supra under the sun has been modified extensively and stock examples have become rarer and rarer to find. But very tasteful upgrades. What are your end goals for he car? A nice weekend driver? Daily? Track toy?

When I was finished with the KW V3 Suspension install I was looking for satisfying before and after pictures but the condition of the fender liners ruined the ‘newness’ feeling for the wheel wells because they were covered in rubber and grime so I decided to replace them! Very simple install, the hardest part is finagling the upper liner back into place and lipping it into the fender. I also took the opportunity to adjust the KW V3s up about 1.5 inches because she was doing a good bit of rubbing at the original level.

Now my wheel wells are so fresh the factory stickers are still on them!






Now its time for some Brembo Brakes and the wheel wells will be on-point!
