    New SP Project: Cowboy Bebop's 4.7L TT Supra visits for some "minor" work

    We just picked up a new project at SP, and it's going to be a big one...

    A few pics of what the car looks like:





    Hidden within, there is a lot to be done on this one. Luckily for this Supra, someone loves it enough to get it back in shape. The wiring is to be completely re-done (harness and all), the HVAC system doesn't work, the audio doesn't work, two of the gauges in the main cluster work (if you're lucky), the piping is dented and beaten in (possibly for fitment?), the 4.7TT has a single 2.5" downpipe, the random ECU will be thrown out in favor of a ProEFI, and the motor.....well let's just say that we have a new 4.7L Tundra motor heading to the machine shop.

    The new owner of the car wants a reliable 600whp and once we're done with it, it's going to be a whole new car. She definitely needs a lot of work, but after some SP love and R&R, I think the owner will be quite pleased.

    Wait till you see the Gallo 24 motor we're using. It's far superior to the Gallo 12.

    Here's a few pics of how the car was dropped off:

    It amazes me that anyone thought that they could make a lot of HP with the exhaust manifolds merging into a 1.5" pipe and then both turbos Ying into a 2.5" downpipe. I love the makeshift flexible pipe that they used for the downpipe!!

    UPDATE:

    The new motor has also been disassembled and is at the machine shop as we speak. There are a number of other pictures, but I do not have them yet. I will post as soon as I get them in my possession.



    Custom pistons and rods have arrived!



    Something this car rarely has seen: OEM Toyota parts!



    No more LinkSys Wi-Fi lookin standalone ems...











    Also as suspected, the initial tear down revealed just what we expected.......









































    .........a wirey mess

    Initial discovery:




    Something wrong with this shifter?




    ...it was cut and literally glued and hose clamped back together




    Massive single mounting bolt (from intake manifold?) for radio...




    Behind the radio:







    Wood screws...




    More wood screws....
