who really cares what you have done Troy, go run some numbers & then come on here & talk your car up .....i sure there is quite a few people on here that have had enough of hearing about how you have done this & done that, & it all comes to nothing the amount of times i have seen you say "it should make 400 wit ease" is not funny,


get the car going first, go run a number & then you might get a little respect around here, untill then you're just another one of those GUNNA people

having said that i do hope it goes well for you .......best of luck

yeah...... Terry the tuning on my car last time around(& did all the other mods), i decided to get matt to tune it due to his experience with autronic, terry just didn't have the experience in my opinion.... & was wanting to much of the folding stuff to do the job .......having said that the move to PITS was probably the best move i ever made & i would recomend PITS to any one that asked,

i read somwhere that you will using Dyson form now on......any reason for that???

the reason im going to dyson now is cause matt doesnt lik microtech and i actually wasnt very happy wit his work
the guy that bought my old microtech got it tuned at a shop just outside of brissy n they wiped all matts maaps and started again as they where aparently not real good
i dont know how true it is tho

but if u even go ask matt, he just doesnt lik tuning microtechs anymore so im going to a shop that specialises in them

Finally!!!
If you come across a sh1tty looking Supra (old model) I wouldn't run it. I've seen the engine bay (customer) and it's a weapon. Looks like a total dogs breakfast on the outside though. You have been warned!

jz aren't indestructable. I remember seeing the crank come out of a certain really cold supra which had a stock bottom end. Bearings were hammered.

If these pics were supposed to impress me they didn't for all the build up there was around it. Did you even clean the engine bay before putting the new motor in?
