winter project Ford/Mazda/?Toyota?maybe


Okay before you get on me for the toyota lol. i am making my probe rear wheel drive.i have decide this

1.Rear Suspension and diff - 93 Mazda Rx7 and depending on money i will swap out the diff for a ford 8.8

2.Engine/ Drivetrain- 93 to 97 toyota Supra inline six twin turbo(ofcourse i will use a t4 instead of the two stock turbos) matted to a toyota 6 speed transmission

3.front suspension - still working on it but probly 88 to 87 rx7 need to getting a contol arm of ebay to check fit

4.Title- well while most people would get a hot rod title for this i feel like driving this sucker as much as i can so well it will be modified

5.Old parts of the car will be up for sell once they are off so any one looking for parts from a gt i will have a whole Sh*% load soon and also a set of ebay headers with about 2000 miles on will be up as well and yes i have a proper egr tube for them(maid out of copper but works.

6.Any one that wants to help or just check out this project in progress is more than welcome should be getting started in about two or three months

I'm sure everyone on this site loves and respects Supras (I know I do) but aren't able to cough up 10-20 grand minimum for a 93-97 TT.. lol Good luck with that though. You'll toast just about everything on the road with that kind of power.
