Loved the car since I saw my 1st one in '87.5. It was a met burgundy. When I had a choice in '91, I saw the Met Blue under the lights & it was a tuff one. When I drove it, just had to stifle my joy so the salesman would believe my comment when I said, "It's OK." Then we proceeded to deal. Put a lot of miles on it the first 10 years. Have the car now; looks & drives like new, but don't drive it much. Need to do the timing belt and check for BHG. Since I found out that the valves & pistons are in "interference". But I am looking forward to taking it to car shows again. It always get people to come by and look at it.
very nice looking and handeling for and
early 90's with an effective use of the
5 speed will keep that power only one
simple motion away (in case of having
to pass someone) can be upgraded to any
level amaginable!!! go with new tires
and a HKS intercooler and turbo piping
as well as new cams and cam gears a
boost controller and some tuning will
keep you buried in your seat for 130 mph
TEMS (toyota electronicly modulated
suspention) is great just push a button
and it changes ride quality and at full
throttle and hard braking it stiffins
automaticly. Climate control is
standard. good looking car. great
learn how to make a back
beefier head gasket. more boost more
agressive cams, better shift knob,
I currently own a 1991 toyota supra
w/turbo automatic transmition, with
tem control, ect, and O/D. the car
runs great and fast. I street race and
have smoked cars with this work of
art. if your lookin for an economic,
or racing car this is the way to go.
ect, eletric transmition clutch,
basically redlines each gear.
tem contrl, controls the hardness of
I have owned this car now for over
five years and have been very pleased
with it. The inline-6 is a gem and
the engine itself is rock-solid. Even
though it is a '91, it has no problems
matching up with some of the "sporty
imports" that are prevalent today. A
very solid car that performs well and
is very dependable
interior, inline-6, rear-wheel drive
I guess headgaskets were a problem;
factory speakers relatively weak;
would have benefitted greatly of vvt-i
had been around then....
this would be a nice vehicle if the
head gasket wasn't so fragile. i had
the car for 3 years and the HG went out
on me 5 times avereging 1,000 dollars a
fix. the engine block is bullet proff
but not even a $300 HK$ gasket solved
the problem. i finaly gave up on it and
sold it for $3,000 bucks. it cost me
11,000 and on 3 years i spended another
10,000 wich wasn't worth it.
the interior of this car is nice, it
makes you feel at home when you'r in it.
to bad i couldn't sleep inside it.
toyota should admit the head design is
faulty and recall it, then, replace it
with an inproved version.
