🔧 BUILD My MKIV Supra build-ish thread...big boy 3.4L motor time

General Information

Most of you that have access to FB have probably already seen this but I did part ways with my Turbo TA yesterday. I've owned that car for over 10 years and took it from completely stock to a monster that is easy to drive and fun to thrash. I will miss that car but where I am in my life is I'd like to slow it down a bit and just have some cruisers and the TA deserves better than what I'm will to do with it. I think it's got everything to be competitive in the right hands. The new owner is a good friend of mine and lives less than a mile away from me so we will be seeing each others cars often that's for sure so it's not gone gone. This was not an easy decision but a combination of right place, right time, right person and right price as I had to come up with some cash on the difference. I would never sell this car normally as I don't think I could trust someone to not hurt themselves in it, but the new owner is more than capable of handling it and I'll be able to still see it perform at the track albeit from the sidelines and not in the drivers seat.

Edit: I'm going to turn this into a mini build thread and document some progress

She lives, some idle video. Cams sound really chop-tastic!

Tease
I know it’s been a minute but after much back and forth trying to get proefi to function we are moving on to a Motec M150 and doing a drive-by-wire conversion as well. I’m a bit bummed but the motec does offer better engine control and features so it seems to be a logical direction we take the car. We’re also putting in a newer bti multifunction display/gauge so I can see more of the motec parameters and control things like boost and traction through the screen.
