Nicest all round north american spec MKII supra I’ve seen yet


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.
