Toyota Anyone?

Anyone know how much power a straight 6 from a 86 Supra makes? She has twin cams and a factory header. Runs excellent! Trying to decide weather to strip the car and save the drive train or fix the car.

I'd bet it would make a nice powerplant for a T bucket... I kno the Supura 5spd is used in a lot of the MG cars because of it's shifter location being so far forward ( pretty sure it's the Supura 5spd they use )... so it would be about right in a T bucket

You're right guys its a great looking engine. The car isn't real bad but I can't help but think how good that engine would look in a model A or a little falcon or something old and small. I think if I found something unique enough I would probably strip the car.
Thanx guys

If the body is no good I would keep the motor. The trans for the non turbo supras arent very strong. I used to mess around with the 7m motor quite a bit and they are very fun. The only problem with them are the headbolts not being torqued enough from the factory and the fact they dont have a lot of oil pressure at idle (4.3psi i think). Im actually looking to find a chevy II wagon to fit a modified turbo motor.

We have a regular competitor at Firebird who has a turbo'd Supra that runs in the high 8's.

I like the idea of the chevy 2 wagon. I had a 67 Nova 2dr hard top. It was actually a Pontiac Acadian, but it was way too rotten to do anything with. I have thought about trying too find another one to use the supra motor in. I would want an ugly old 4 door though because it would make a great sleeper.

Well Im sorry your so narrow minded. but lets look at it this way 3.0 straight six, turbo, efi, and can make 350hp with stock turbo and only intake and exhaust mods. 450hp with a bored out stock turbo and bigger injectors. sounds like a good hot rod to me.

some peoples minds are so open there brains fall out,foreign cars just aren't hotrods, the hot rod is a purely american phenom', american car american engine period, tuners just don't cut it, i don't care how many ponies you can get out a damned 6 banger, you can make big horses out of a five horse briggs fer chrissakes, watch jr dragsters, they still sound like crap.

Belvydeuce, hear me out on this one: I agree with you to a certain extent and also would probably not waisted my time with the race. But when my 16 year old son came home wanting a 91 Honda CRX I had to somehow figure out a way to justify this import in my yard. What would his grandfather (my father in law) think? He is an original hot rodder an icon to all of us...the guy we went to when we were kids to see what he was working on in his garage.Do I tell my kid "NO you can't have that crap. not as long as you live under my roof"? I can't do that, that was almost the same attitude my dad had when I came home with a 66 Elcamino with the worked and throaty soundin" 283 smallblock back in 1982. So I let him get it.
Then the day came that "Pop" was coming to visit. My wife assured me that her father would be O. K. with the Honda and I didn't have to hide it in the neighbors driveway. When my son took him out to look it over, I saw him scratch his head and look down at the car...then he opened the hood and just stared, shaking his head. My boy came running in the house and notified me that I was needed out at his car. When I cautiously made my way there, Pop said" we gotta get this thing up to my place, I am gonna fix those dents on the body so it can go get a quick paint job, you know they put the bigger motors in these things? I think we should stay with what it has in it for now, but once he gets a little more driving experience we can put the motor and manual trans right in this baby." He turned to my son and said,"Save your money for some wheels and tires and you might wanna look into a lowering kit."
I nearly fell over, then it hit me. "Pop" is a hotrodder tried and true, it don't matter what it is, American classic,Briggs and Stratton, or yes even a Honda...if it has a motor he wants to tear it apart, improve it, make it go faster, make it run better and DRIVE THE H$LL out of it!
Maybe you should have raced that "RICEBURNER" kicked his butt and gave him something to think about. I do agree with you that they sound odd, I wouldn't waste my time or money and I love America and the American tradition of Hotrodding, but I now realize that Hotrodding is also a state of mind. Even though I don't always agree with what has been hotrodded, I gotta respect the hotrodder that did it.
Thanks,
Rick
