What do you need to change a non-turbo 5 spd manual Toyota supra to a 6 speed manual twin turbo supra anything under the car needs to be changed or the 5 spd manual tran is the same size as the 6spd?

Not worth changing to a 6-gear manual, an entire new engine would be needed. As for turboing a non turbo supra that part is also annoying, as the internals for a non turbo and turbo supra is different. You would have to buy a conversion kit which will set u back like 5k

You need a 6 speed manual twin turbo Toyota Supra that's been hit in the back. The conversion is straightforward but time-consuming: park the donor car next to yours and transfer everything under the hood of the donor to your car. Also make sure to change the computer, which is in the passenger compartment. I just did this swap. Although it is time consuming, you don't need a new engine like these people said. You need: Trans, driveshafts, rear differential, left axle, computer, clutch pedal, and the computer is optional, but reccomended. You'll also need a new center console. Toyota makes everything required, but it all comes factory Japan, so it will take about 2 months to get everything. I bought almost everything from Ebay or craigslist. It took a while, but if you look online you'll see others who have done it and it's a much more fun driving car and well worth the time and money. (I'm the one who recommended buying the wreck and swapping over all the parts. The answer right above this one indicates the guy has a non-turbo engine in his car, and the questioner wanted the twin-turbo engine. They are not the same inside--if you want the twin turbo engine you are best off swapping the whole engine instead of trying to hunt down a Supra twin turbo setup and grafting it onto a non-turbo engine.) My setup is in fact a 2jz-gte engine factory automatic that I swapped to the factory 6 speed v160. The engine is the same, except for the throw out bearing and the pilot bearing for the transmission to mate to the engine. All of the sensors are the same or not needed on the TT 6 speed version.

How do you remove the crank pulley on a 1985 Toyota Supra?

A great way to break loose the crank shaft pulley bolt is to get a 1/2" breaker bar and a 19mm 1/2"socket hook it up make sure to handle of the breaker bar is on the driver side then put the end of it to the ground and crank over your engine for a split second and the momentum from the srater will break the bolt loose...............good luck getting it by hand or impact gun, this way i described is most effective and extremely easy........... the handle of the breaker bar has to be sturdy posted onto the cement before u turn the motor over because if not u may have a disaster with a fly breaker bar.......... the bolt loosens counter clock wise ---------DRE85mkll owner

the crankshaft gear located behind the harmonic balancer has threads inside the gear to accept a threaded puller. i went to home depot and purchased a one and a half inch pipe nipple about four inches long. drilled two hole at one end of nipple and installed a bolt in each hole for the claws on my puller to grab. the pipe nipple will screw right into thr crank gear. grab bolts on pipe nipple with puller and wrench against the crankshaft and remove the gear the same way as the harmonic balancer

Where is the Air Temperature Sensor on a 1987 Toyota Supra?

there are a few sensors. One is built into the Air Flow Meter. That sensor is for engine controls. A second sits in front of the radiator I believe and is used for the AC. The third site in the dash somewhere and is used for the AC.

The in car temp sensor is in the center console behind the armrest compartment.

remove the air snorkel from the throttle body, there are 2 plastic covers over the top of the plug wires, remove them. the 6 wires are now exposed. pull them out and the plugs are in the holes the wires came out of. a 5/8 plug socket on an extension will get them. sometimes a u-joint is needed on the extension to get #'s 4, 5 and 6.

Where is the window and lock relay located for a 1985 Toyota Supra?

It is in the lower front corner of the drivers door

Edgar: It sounds to me like you have a window and lock problem? The solution is very simple.

1. Remove negative battery cable and set aside.

2. Remove panel next to drivers brake pedal on the left wall.

3. The silver/metallic circles are relays, they say relay on them. That's rarely your problem but important to know about.

4. Find a black little block with a hole insert on top. It's called a circuit breaker.

5. There is a small hole on top of this breaker.

6. Poke it in. Then put it back in.

7. Connect your battery.

8. Check your windows and locks. They should be functional now.

How many seats does a Porsche have?

it depends... i have owned a porsche 968 coupe with 4 seats, a porsche 911 turbo with 4 seats, a porsche gt3 with 2 seats, and a posche carrera gt with 2 seats. The porsche's that tend to be faster more expensive seem to have 2 seats, due to the fact that a lot of the expensive 1's, especially the gt3's, are meant for racing/speed. 2 seated porsches have exra weight in the back of the car for traction and grip, which makes them easy to control in higher speeds.

Can a W58 Toyota supra gear box be used with a Toyota supra twin turbo engine2jzgte?

I have seen this done previously, but not in person. Because the block is essentially the same in the 2JZgte and the 2JZge, I can't see why it would be a problem bolting the actual box up, but you would need to use the 5 Speed clutch as well, because the splines on the 6sp are different. The tailshaft may be different as well, but that's an easy modification also.

Your 1983 Toyota supra keeps overheating?

There are a million reasons why a Toyota Supra (nice car!) or ANY car can keep overheating. Here are a few, from most likely to least likely (but still very possible).

  1. The engine is low on coolant, or leaking coolant. Also, some cooling systems need to be refilled a certain way to eliminate air bubbles, which otherwise can prevent you from adding enough water. I've owned a Mazda, a VW and a BMW which all fooled me at one time or another with air bubbles in the cooling system.
  2. The coolant is rusty or contaminated. Also, all engines should be cooled with a mixture of water and anti-freeze. Water alone is less efficient at transferring heat, and anti-freeze also contains additives that lubricate the water pump bearing and help prevent corrosion.
  3. Coolant is not circulating properly through the engine. Possible reasons include old rubber water pipes that collapse when hot coolant is running through them (but seem OK otherwise), or excessive rust or scale in the engine's water passages. If the problem isn't too extreme, "flush and fill" kits from auto parts stores can help.
  4. The thermostat is stuck closed, or partly closed, or the radiator cap is not holding sufficient pressure. Replacements are cheap. Do NOT buy a "cooler" thermostat hoping to solve the problem -- it probably won't. But if it does, an engine that continuously runs cooler than what it is designed for is likely to develop other problems, including oil sludge.
  5. The radiator is partly restricted or plugged -- this is very likely if it's never been replaced on a 27-year-old car.
  6. The cooling fan (if belt-driven) is not working properly. The bearings could be worn. The center thermostat on the fan hub, if equipped that way, may be worn out. The belt could be slipping. If the fan is electric, a temperature sensor or relay may not be working properly.
  7. An auxiliary radiator fan is not turning on automatically when the a/c is turned on -- see previous item for possible causes.
  8. There is some kind of physical blockage (leaves, sticks etc.) in front of the radiator, or airflow guides behind the radiator are damaged or missing. On some cars, if the plastic trim pieces under the engine are missing, cooling air will no longer be diverted properly toward the radiator.
  9. The external oil cooler, if equipped, is clogged. Oil will still circulate, but it won't be cooled properly.
  10. Driving conditions are too extreme. For many cars of the '80s and earlier (especially British cars), they simply weren't designed to cope with stop-and-go traffic and temperatures in the 90s.
  11. The fuel system is running too lean, making the engine run too hot. (This is not a trivial problem -- excessive heat in the combustion chambers can quickly ruin an engine.) This can be caused by a defective oxygen sensor, although they are supposed to default to a "rich" fuel mixture (which burns cool) if something goes wrong with the system.
  12. The car is carrying too much weight, or pulling a heavy trailer. (Hey, somebody installed a small trailer hitch on my 1990 Nissan 300ZX before I bought it -- I hope it was only for a bike rack.)

Probably 90 percent of cooling problems are related to answers 1-5, so start there.
