Hello readers at MKIV.com I’m Mario and thought it’d be nice to share something about my own supra and how she has been evolved since my ownership.
I own an originally Red june-1993 supra SZ which was bought by me when first imported into the Netherlands back in august 2009.
Since my ownership the car has been undergoing a few major changes, for example the 2JZ-GE got exchanged for an 2JZ-GTE, also the 5-speed W58 got exchanged for an 6-speed V160 in combination with an A02B differential.
While the previously fitted 2JZ-GE was taken out of the engine compartment the supra was sent off to the paint shop to get the engine compartment resprayed.
Installation of my 4” HKS Titanium exhaust system, customized for more ground clearance.
BPU’d the 2JZ-GTE and upgraded the j-spec 2/1 pot configuration into the ‘’US-spec’’ brakes all round.
The system exhaust got upgraded to an 4’’ HKS Titanium.
The supra is recently completely overhauled, the previous owner(s) resprayed the supra in a goldish, top-secret ish color with an aftermarket body kit. I wanted to get the supra back in her original shape with only OEM exterior parts. The supra received a full overhaul and is sprayed in Toyota’s 040 white, during the overhaul she received new window seals and installation materials as bolts, nuts, clips etc. Also she received OEM facelift lightening all round. Also new CCW wheels got fitted.
A few pictures of the restauration and how she sits at the minute, I will let the pictures do the talking.
Exchanged the final drive from A02B>B03B this included the prop/ and driveshafts to be exchanged as well.
While at it the stock old brake lines got exchanged for the HKS braided lines,
Still lots of things in mind, will keep you updated.
