MKIVSupra, use the cars battery. it wouldnt ever deplete it unless you didnt drive it in the winter and left the webcam on. what about the transmitter? i know it could be routed to a laptop w/ a wireless 128k modem, but if you were in a parking garage it wouldnt work, but worth the investment to me. if you could cut out the laptop alltogether that would make it so much friendlier to the wallet.


as a side note, i saw a 95 accord last night with AT LEAST a 17" flat panel screen in the passanger side last night. i was horrified. it was as big as my monitor. what is wrong with the Thugs??? 20" "B-L-A-D-E-S" on the danm thing. i mean, a sh!t brown 95 accord w/ freggin 20's and a 17" flat panel.....AHHHHHHHHHHH... my head still hurts from the obscene amount off bass w/out treble.

MKIV Supra. first off, that would be the newer body style? and secondly, do you like the fact that the supra lives on in the lexus IS? if you didnt know let me explain. the L6 in the supra is the same as in the IS300, as well as the 5 speed, and i'd bet money the suspension is nearly interchangeable. TRD is releasing the turbo kit/ model soon i hope. imagine a 1200hp Lexus IS.... OMG. i wish toyota would release the altezza, then all the riceboys would learn where the "altezza" style lights came from, and that ONLY the factory can do it right.


1. how much was the remote start/alarm?
2. what model? the 2WSS?
3. did you install it/see it installed?
4. and if so, was it easy?

alright, i know its not like the TT, but that will be coming shortly i hear. most of the parts in L6 NA should be in the TT, minus things like pistons and cams ect. your the toyota man here so you'd know better than i. but its seems to me that the IS/Altezza is the replacement supra or rather, the supralite. i didnt know about the 6spd but shoulda figured since toyota owns.

i like the supra, but i dont see a new one in the works anytime soon. i want an entirely new pony car from toyota. i bet it will be based on the next camaro/firebird platform. GM and toyota are bedbuddies ya know. on that note, i see a turbocharged camaro coming down the works. chevy JUST released the bel-air concept w/ a turbocharged 5cyl, i bet that gets changed to the L6 that is in the trailblazer. that motor is probaly identical to the supra TT motor except for the internals, so if ya add a turbo it should be at par with the supra TT. now where did that come from/where the hells it going?

dude, the toyota line is already half chevy and vice versa. they are sharing MANY ideas.

6cyl camaro, only if turbocharged stock. ala pontiac TTA and buick GNX. both are 9 second cars with just the touch of a tuner and minor mods. i work at a print shop and we print a buick racing news letter every quarter and he owns a 9 second w/ a/c on GNX. it looks totally stock and drives like a daily driver.

yes they did kill the camaro, but only to make people want it again. and GM put a LOT of time into that new L6 that whores toyota influnce, and i'd like to see it in more than the trailblazer. it has 273hp NA out of 273ci. throw a turbo on that and youll push 350 easy. a very good motor that is made to be easy to mod.

Fbods are unibody. the I6 has dohc as well as most of their 4 cyl motors. pushrods offer a few benifeits that few note. a pushrod is a cheap and easy part to repair, and would most likely fail first saving you many dollars on a new cam/head. at the cost of our variable valve timing... mmm. a CVVT (nissans continously variable valve timing) 305 (88 IROC-Z camaro)... man i could get some serious hp if i threw in some compression and a supercharger. gotta love the low psi, very lil chance of that being the part that kills your motor. its really about heritage and production costs. a OHV motor costs less to make than a DOHC. period. and please remember. i am getting a new Z, so i LOVE DOHCs...and OHVs i have both the aformentioned IROC and a 78' Dodge lil red express.

anyone ever heard of a twin cammed pushrod motor? one for intake and one for exhaust? theres quick and easy variable valve timing.
