There were two different engines in the 1988 Supras(MKIII) there was the turbo-charged 7MGTE inline 6 engine, and the N/A 7MGE which was not turbo-charged.
Look on the front timing cover. If it says 7MGE it is non turbo, if it says 7MGTE it is a turbo. You can look on back below taillights for turbo emblem. The turbo motors also usually have a black plastic cover over the front of the motor that says turbo. Easy way is look on left side of motor where the exhaust is to see if there's a turbo or not.
buy a new turbo and replace it
mine reads 160
It's 200hp and the turbo hp is 130. The 90-92 is 133hp.
A Chilton's Automotive Repair manual will have a diagram for the vacuum lines for the 1988 Supra Turbo. This is an inexpensive manual when compared to the labor costs. It is about $25 at most automotive parts stores.
well it doesn't come twin turbo, it's single turbo.
it depends if its turbo or not and if the non turbo has the sport package turbo diffs where 3.73 LSD and non turbo where 4.30 same with the sport package but the sport package has LSD as well and all the MKIII differentials are 7.5 inches
Montreal Supra was created in 1988.
If they are square, YES!. If they are round, NO!. In 1989, Toyota did a mid year crossmember/engine mount change. The square ones will fit '86 to '89. The round ones will fit '89 to '92.
Both power is fused before a relay gas and spark don't mix too well
yes it will, u have to do a full engine swap and get all the parts for it

If its a Tubro (7m-gte) then replace it with the turbo engine (7m-gte) If its non turbo, replace it with the non turbo. The Supras from 1986.5 to 1992 were all interchange able. In fact, the engines from the 79-86 Supras will bolt in as well, how ever they will not plug into your stock harness. The "M" series block is very very interchangeable. Also the 7m Series engine came in the Toyota Cressida of the same years....but only in non turbo form.
1983-1986 Garrett turbo 1987-1988 ihi turbo

It's possible, in fact here's a 2JZ-GTE in an '88 or so z31, click on the engine link.http://www.az-zbum.com/modification.engine.swap.shtml
as long as they are both non-turbo or both turbo.
I Don't Know Whether Yours Is Left Or Right Hand Drive, But In UK The Fuse Box Is Under Cover On Drivers Side. Regards M. R.
change the stock air filter to a cold air k&n or otherwise after market intake system. take it to a machine shop and have it bored out. Or maybe just get a bigger turbo it's slightly up to you
The 1989 supra turbo would be the fastest. 1989-1992 were basically the same car though. the 1987-1988 supra turbos had slightly less power, 2hp and 8lbs of torque, so they are about the same as well. There is no real speed dif. A non targa turbo would be faster, due to less weight, but not by much. Maybe 100lbs lighter? I think the targas cool factor is worth the 100lbs. The fastest a mag clocked a mk3 turbo was 0-60 in 6.6 seconds and 15.1 1/4 mile at around 91mph. They feel much faster. Once in 3rd gear you can keep up with anything. They do weigh alot, but they are a very good riding and handling car. If you find a 87 or 88 supra turbo, its the same as a 1989 in most aspects. The speed dif isn't really noticble, so if you want one get it. Hope I was of some help to you.
check the oil maybe?

when i did the clutch in my 1988 non turbo supra we had to take off the starter it was a pain it took us six hours just to get the one bolt off we tried using extension and everything we finaly got it off by going the inside of the car through where the gear shifter is put a couple extensions on it have one person hold it on the bolt and the other go at it with an impact driver by far the most difficult job i ve done on my car is that one starter bolt good luck
