TR Lexi,
I don't think it will much matter, they should both have the same packaging, but the turbo mount may have stiffer rubber?

12371-46120 is the Supra MKIV TT mount
12371-46020 is the Supra MKIV NA mount, and also the SC300/400 mount.

Need to use the aristo ecu. The GE one doesnt know what to do with boost, fuel or timing.

Not unless you rewire the car and engine harness with one from a mkiv

Your welcome. Can you not find an aristo ecu ? They are dirt cheap everywhere and almost all of the motor sets come with one.

no, I found a motor set cheap by my place, but it doesn't come with an ECU. I just wanted to see how hard it would be to source one out and if I couldn't what were my options. I plan on doing the swap next year, but i like to have all the facts before i get in the dirty.

I went to take a look at an aristo engine at the local place and it has a 3 pronged bracket on the end and as far as i know the gs has a 3 proged driveshaft (at least at the end it connects to the diff).

Also if you getting an engine without one you need a supra ignitor

They all have 3 prongs. They don't both line up correctly.

wow, so we can't use the stock tranny either?


What if we find a manual motor set? Other then running the lines and clutch assembly, is there any additional stuff we need to do?

There is no manual Aristo unless it has been swapped so no worries on that one. The Aristo trans can be identified by J3 stamped on the bell housing. The GS300 is a J2. The J2 can not handle the power that the J3 can. The Aristo ECU and J2 trans are likely not to shift properly.
