    The Ultimate ' Toyota Supra ' Information Thread

    I've always seen (somewhat random) comments made here and there, on DK, about the differences between the Toyota Supra generations and between model years, but it makes it hard to search for it on DK.

    So, I thought I'd start a comprehensive SINGLE thread detailing all the information you can possibly find on the Toyota Supra. I feel this thread would be very beneficial for DK. Perhaps others can also start info threads on other oldschool/not-so-oldschool Toyota cars? Starlet, MR2, Cressida, Corona, etc.

    So, if you know anything about the Supra, post it up! What are the differences between the Supra generations, as well as the differences/changes made between each year for each generation (perhaps a pros/cons list can be made here)? I'm looking for any Supra experts out there to chime in and give a good breakdown of this information.

    And if you're really up for it, perhaps you can talk about some of the possible mods available and done to the Supra (engine swaps, turbo upgrades, etc), what parts fit and work on a Supra (axles, LSDs, seats, etc.), etc.

    no 13" rims on the mk2 for sure, will not clear the brakes. the mk1 i believe had 14's as well, although i am not 100% on that one.

    the Official CelicaSupra.com interior thread
    http://www.celicasupra.com/vbforums/...ad.php?t=10614



    P-type and L-type; differences in years (from celicasupra.com) copy/pasted below
    http://www.celicasupra.com/vbforums/...ead.php?t=7599

    USDM 2nd generation Supras:

    *1982: 145hp 150ft/lbs. 8.8:1 compression, vaccuum advanced distributor, glass antenna, door lock located in center console, key lock gas filler door, black hatch and bumper, 85mph speedometer, 3.72 standard gearing, tail lights had reverse light in the center, the early 1982 models had only "SUPRA" on the nose badge and b-pillar covers, door handles open by pulling sideways

    *1984: automatics= kept the 1983 engine
    5 speeds= got the 9.2:1 compression ratio, D-shaped intake runners, 160hp 163 ft/lb engine
    1st year the mkII had wrap around turn signals and a new style steering wheel, also got a bump in a 130mph speedometer, got the billboard "SUPRA" sticker on the hatch, the hatch and bumper received same color treatment (no more black), all 5 speeds received the 4.30 gears all automatics got 4.10 gears, received an internal fuel pump, the door lock switch was moved to the drivers side door, the tail lights also changed to having the reverse light closer to the liscense plate, door handles open by pulling up, the automatic climate control display changed style


    *1985: all the mkIIs had the new 161hp 169 ft/lb engine and recieved a new double spoiler, also got heated mirrors that activate with the rear defroster, also received a different style TPS and EGR system, a factory alarm and a knock sensor, the door handles had a green-lighted keyhole that was continued to 1986


    *1986: 3rd brake light added to meet regulations, AM Stereo, smaller ignition key = hard to find


    P-(Performance) type and L-(Luxury) type differences:
    the leather interior was not available on P-types until 1983, the L-types did not recieve the 8 way adjustable seats that came standard on P-type models, L-type wheels were 14X5.5" until 1985 when they changed to 15x6" and a P-type style. All P-type wheels are 14x7" alloys. L-types had digital dash w/ trip computer as an option. All P-types were available with headlight washers (except 1982 for the washers) and wheel flares, the L-types had no flares or headlight washers


    L-type wheel (82-84) 14 x 5.5", +27mm offset
    L-type wheel (1985 only) 15 x 6", +20mm offset.
    P-type wheel 14 x 7", +8mm offset

    All have a 4:114.3 bolt circle/bolt pattern.


    ~Leather Interiors in the MkII~
    P-types:
    1982* leather not available
    1983* available in black, a one year only color - still trying to confirm Terra Cotta
    1984* available in Maroon and Black/Grey; L-type seats were also available in the '84 P-types as well
    1985* available in Maroon, Black/Grey and first year Blue became availabe
    1986* same colors as '85

    L-types:
    1982* leather available in Black and Terra Cotta, material appears to look and feel like vinyl
    1983* leather available in the same colors, but now the seat material is the actual leather
    1984* leather available in Maroon and Black/Grey
    1985* leather not available
    1986* L-type was discontinued


    *Note; mkII Supra started production in 1981 and ended in 1985...the cars that were made from August-December of 1985 were classified as 1986 models as with any year car made between those months they are named after the next year...some July models are hybrids, having features of both the production date and next years model.

    I'll do the Turbo A and Turbo R for something to do while this game downloads

    Turbo A
    1988 Supra (MA70)
    7M-GTE 3.0L DOHC 24-valve Inline-6 Engine with Turbocharger and Intercooler
    4-wheel independent suspension (double-wishbone on all 4-corners)
    Standard 3-channel ABS
    R154 Transmission
    3.73:1 8.0" Rear End, LSD Standard
    16x7.0" 5x114.3 +37mm wheels in gunmetal

    The difference between a Mark 3 Supra and a Turbo-A
    Engine :
    - Larger throttle body 65mm vs 60mm
    - Unlabelled intake pipe of larger diameter with no taper (ie: no '3000'pipe)
    - Compressor side turbo larger
    - D-Jetro MAP system (as opposed to MAF Mass Air Flow metering). Does away with restrictive air flow meter.
    - Larger CT26 turbo with the "E" symbol on Compressor Cover as identification
    - Boost up from 0.48kg/cm2 to 0.55kg/cm2 (larger actuator)
    - Unique ECU to match D-Jetro system
    - Metal air cleaner box
    - Larger inter cooler
    - Oil cooler moved to center position, below Turbo A duct

    Interior :
    - Analog Dash, 180KM/h Speedo, 6,500 RPM redline and max boost at +400mmhg
    - Interior was Leather as standard.
    - Black Momo shift knob & Steering wheel
    - WITHOUT cruise control (as opposed to other mk3s)

    Handling :
    - Suspension Package upgraded (much stiffer than standard).
    - Without TEMS - Toyotas adjustable suspension
    - Black colored alloy wheels "Saw blades" with 225 all round.

    Looks like you guys got the bases covered. I'll go and compile a Cressida tech info thread... may take a while, I'll be out of the country next week (SAE Mini-Baja competition at school, going to Alabama).

    Man you guys have too much time on your hands, I would have just linked to the forums that already had all of this info

    mk2 supras got heated mirrors in 85, I imagine they kept them for the newer years in Canada the whole time. It was optional on the US mk4s but standard on the Canadian mk4s, probably the same with mk3s.

    Definitly no 13 inch mk2 rims.

    You got the rear end gearing all wrong for the mk4s....

    I think the mk4 wheels were a +55 offset but I'd have to check and its not in the new car book. Speaking off, almost every single thing you could ever want to know about mk4s can be found in this book...

    http://www.mkiv.com/specifications/ncf/ncf93/

    Wish I could get one of these for mk3s and mk2s.

    ^^^ But then that would defeat the whole purpose of being able to run a "search" for this valuable information on Dori-Kaze.

    Great info everyone! Keep it up.

    I've confirmed before, the MKIV TT wheels are definitely +50mm all around, not sure on the N/A offsets.

    Sorry about my lack of info on MKIV diffs .

    Japan's TT 6-speeds had 3.27:1, we got 3.133:1.
