Seems kind of weird to install Supra seats in the SC. Only the driver seat is POWER, the passenger side is MANUAL. Kinda takes away from the value of the SC, what do you guys think?
I have tan 1994 Supra seats in my tan interior SC. I had them fully recovered with Katzkin leather matching the color codes they would have used on SC300/400 factory seats.
They do bolt right in and no, they don't feel weird at all in this car. You lose the memory function, heat (if you have it), lumbar adjustment and the passenger side is fully manual. You gain a much better seating position and side bolstering to hold you in place in corners and you still have seats that vaguely look as if they were an original factory option. I find them to be a night and day difference in both comfort and seating feel from the SC seats: You sit IN the Supra bucket seats. You sit ON the SC seats.
93.5-96 Supra seats and 97-98 Supra seats differ only in the integrated headrest in the latter version. They are otherwise the same.
It depends on what you want as to whether the Supra seats or another seat are better than the factory SC/Soarer seat which was designed for comfort and easy ingress/egress rather than a sporty feel.
It should be noted that the basic power functions on the Supra driver's seat have to be transferred to either a spare SC seat connector or you must de-pin the +12V and Ground wires from the body harness to fit connectors of your choosing that go to the Supra seat connector.
Your seatbelt dash light will also come on unless you re-wire the seat to complete the circuit when you connect your seatbelt. This is not as hard as it sounds. I made a writeup for it a while back.
