Seamus’s supra and road trip to JCCS

So my friend since I was 3 years old made the trip down to the japanese classic car show (JCCS) this year, even though his engine install was just finished the day they left and the car wasn’t completely ready for the show.

here’s the pics he sent me.


from what i can remember about the engine swap is that it’s a 7MGTE bottom end (mostly for the displacement and piston oil squirters.. and a few other bits) with the 5MGE pistons and head, therefore making it a 6MGE and the only real 6M part is the crank pulley. also worth noting is the 1uz throttle body and intake manifold that are all ceramic coated…

some of my info may be bad and seamus will most likely correct me.





from left to right here’s Pete’s 76? celica with a 7MGE motor (3L straight 6), steve’s ae86 corolla with a 1UZ (4L V8 from a lexus ls400), and seamus’s supra with the custom built 6M all on their way down from Canada to LA


seamus’s supra again, looking good without the side moldings.


and seamus’s 6M looking better then any 12-valve M series ever has.

    A corolla with a V8. Holy crap. Does he have stabilizer arms on that thing. And wings maybe, no forget the wings.

    Actually the crank pulley is from the 7mgte too, though I do have a 6m crank pulley for it. The intake manifold is from a real 6m though, and the lower outer timing cover is a 6m part but its from my cars original motor. It seems all 86 Supra 5mges only came with the 6m version from the factory (6m crank snouts are larger).

    Pete’s Celica is a 76.

    Steve’s 1uz should be making around 220-240rwhp so its not insanely over powered but it is a very nice power to weight ratio.
