    It's kind of hard to tell without the car actually running, and also I've never driven a 6-speed Supra so I have nothing to compare it to, but it would appear that everything is functioning more or less as it should. I think the tab at the base of the shifter which functions as the reverse lockout may need to be bent a little bit because 5th and 6th seem to be hard to engage, but again it's pretty hard to tell the difference between 3rd and 5th or 4th and 6th when the car doesn't move and the engine doesn't run!

    Short version: with a bit of tweaking I expect it will be just as good as original.

    Serious? Sounds like someone has been bitten hard by the roundy-roundy bug.

    I haven't heard of anyone else doing this in a MkIV... then again not many people do much beyond brand-name bolt-ons with MkIV's do they.

    BTW I may need to commission your welding services soon, I wouldn't mind having my shifter bracket strengthened a bit.

    Yeah I knew about the disabling-the-hydro-pump trick when I did my engine swap but I'm lazy and managed to get the Supra parts cheap so I just did the full swap. One small benefit, the smaller pump makes it much easier to access the wastegate actuator and hence install a bleed valve.

    Oh and rbman has done a great job on the floorpan, it's looking a lot better now (ie no more gaps); I'll put some photos up soon. Next step is to apply a layer of tar and paint, then I guess I'll be needing a new tailshaft. I can almost smell the burning rubber!

    From a Landcruiser.

    From a Supra.

    Fuck me, are people getting stupider or is it just my interpretation?

    Sorry if that was the whole joke.... but FUCK!

    Yeah what he said. Basically I was looking for rubber mounts with studs sufficiently long to work with the alloy 2JZ engine mounts; from memory the ones I ended up using were from a diesel cruiser of some description, but I couldn't tell you anything more than that.

    Do you know the meaning of the word source? I'm looking for the cheapest places to get these parts from

    But I see what you mean, I should buy a Supra and a Landcruiser to get the mounts and water pump

    Anywhoo the mounts look like 60 series mounts (from what I can tell) Auto 1 can get them for 35 a mount.

    I suppose I should post a quick update, not that I've actually done anything except buy stuff. Namely, a GT35R turbo (thanks dansedgli!), a Haltech E6K and 700cc injectors (thanks RZ!), and a set of shiny Autometer gauges (thanks eBay!). Ah the internet, where would I be without it? About $3k ahead in the last week alone.

    Anyway pics will be forthcoming when the goodies arrive. Oh yeah and one of these days I'll remember to take photos of the completed transmission tunnel.

    Haven't you heard? GT35's are out. Anything smaller than a GT42 is for pansy's these days.

    Yes I'm soft for buying such a small turbo. 130mph would be nice, pity it will still do 12's though.

    OK by popular demand, here's rbman's handiwork. Note the absence of holes! I am impressed.



    I was going to put the clutch together and install the gearbox this weekend, but I accidentally ordered the wrong wave washer so it's on hold until I get the right one. The last lot of parts took 6 weeks to get here so it's not likely I'll have this machine running any time soon.

    Nice job. Sucks about the parts taking forever though. You must be eager to smell some tire smoke from the old girl

    More than 1 week from the US and I start to get pissed off. I have actually received goods from the US quicker than from interstate Australia post!
