nice. That s a pretty small IC compared to what I put on. My pipes are a bit tight on the drivers side and now I see why lol. At least this picture cleared some things for me.

As a suggestion, you should get an intercooler designed for a MkIII supra because the intake setup is same as the 2jzge. inlet and outlet on the same side.

NA-T is a nice setup. Some of my Supra friends who race their MkIVs really prefer the GE bottom end because they say it is a bit more stout and these are guys who race straight out drag only and runs low 9's and 8's. Looking forward to the build.

yeah, i had a larger intercooler that came with the kit 12x24x3, but it was huge! A lot of cutting would be necessary to make something like that fit. This one is smaller and was chosen because no cutting was needed and one hard line bracket had to be moved so it would fit. It was cake lol

As to the inlet/outlet ones on the same side, I considered it but again, the kit came with pipes already laid out for this type of setup.

I'm excited about it. I'm not gonna be running 8s 9s 10s or anything like that, but I wanted to give the GS some pep.

Here's a pic of how my turbo is clocked. I'm assuming you're asking about the hot side pipes? It was a little difficult but the pipe fits straight down between the oil drain line, coolant hose, and hard line in there. and you can see in the first pic of the intercooler in my last post how the pipe comes straight across under the chassis to link up.

i have the same plan. Boost this car until the motor poos out, then 2jzgte time. As to how much this cost me, i got probably one of the best deals ever, so I wouldn't compare it to my experience if I were you. I got my kit from another member here for $700 and after miscellaneous expenses and a few extra things I'd say total the kit cost $900-1000. My Apexi AFC Neo I bought from a member here for $120 or so and those retail round $250-300? something like that.

On top of that, I had people for the install too, so that saves a ton there.

So absolute total for everything for me was ~$1500. You have the option of shopping around and getting the kit piece by piece or just go get a done up kit. G/L with that.



Next batch of teasers, then I'm not posting anything til all the bodywork, wheels, gauges, and other mods are done...
