    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.

          yeh hopefully it does good things for overall handling and straight line grip.
          no worrys on the bracket , i can patch that up anytime ... about a 10 min job.

                  So just out of curiosity where did you source the supra water pump?

                      Toyota & you'll need to also purchase a pulley as well.

                      About $400 for both im told.

                        Bah, just blank it off like I did. Cost $2 for the right bolts.

                          Yeah I had a talk with PSi about this and welding/bolting is gonna be my answer. Can you please email me the pics of this mod?

                            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! :D

                              You used "no more gaps"? hehehe
