Thread: A life long dream come true. *supra content*

    Default A life long dream come true. *supra content*

    Well as some of you may know I recently sold my beloved R33. She was a blast to own, build and drive but my plans with her were never long term. My biggest dream as a car enthusiast has always been to own and build a MKIV Supra and recently I was blessed with the opportunity to make that dream come true. She is a 1993 Supra RZ with the 2JZ-GTE and Getrag 6 speed from the factory. As of now she's pretty much bone stock aside from an axle back exhaust, 90s spec sony radio(this thing has a Hi-MD reader) and an HKS turbo timer. My short term goals for the car are simple, the typical BPU stuff, spoiler delete, tint, fixing the little things that aren't up to par resulting from being 22 years old, and finally coilovers and wheels so it doesn't look like a monster truck that skipped leg day. I'm super excited not only to have a new project, but also to be living a fantasy of mine. I plan to keep this car until I die and you will see it go through many phases throughout the years. Without further adue, here she is.

    After a half-a-day battle with this car installing and adjusting (FYI R chassis suspension is much easier to work on than jza chassis), the coilovers are finally in aswell as the wheels and she is also now wingless. The front settled a bit lower than expected but even still the car rides extremely well. I still have a few minor changes to make but big picture wise the supra now looks pretty much exactly how she will for the next three years I'm in Okinawa until we go stateside and the complete teardown and rebuild begins. I'm very pleased with how things came out, so without further adue here she is.

    Stay tuned for the upcoming minor modifications as well as non-potato quality photos after she gets a proper bath.

    I went to the weekly Saturday night meet which is held at a gas station/car wash and decided to bust the camera out during Suki's shower.



    I was also able to override the factory Active Lip Front Spoiler system so I can cruise with it down but still raise if needed since from the factory, its only designed to be able to be lowered either when stationary or above 90+ KPH for aerodynamics. Here's a little vid for anyone interested.

    For some reason it makes me very happy knowing that you're really happy with your car. After all, it is your dream car, and not everyone has the chance to own one. In for future updates!
