Geeze dude how many rides do you have? Good find thou!
Currently 3, 2 of which are registered and 1 of which runs LOL.
This truck really takes the pressure off so I can take my time and do the 89 and the Supra right. Wiring is next for the Supra.
I see the 95 and 89 trading body panels later down the road when the 89 is ready to drive again. Dented up trucks still sell haha.
Oh, I do have a remanufactured 82 Supra AFM I plan to fit to the 22RE.
the Suprar AFM, is that for a bigger diameter?
do you know the specific bore? how does it compare to the TB?
You need to neck up from stock (2.5"?) to 3.25" OD on the pipe, otherwise it's plug and play. Should bolt right to the air cleaner.
You HAVE to use an 82 5MGE AFM, the other years will not work. Someone at A-1 Cardone took note and started rehabbing them, so they're pretty easy to get now for about $80.
Local junkyard sold me an awesome pair of 1990 SR5 4Runner buckets for $40, so that's a thing now for the 1995. Mechanicall lumbar, bolster and tilt adjustment! About the ultimate without having to wire anything if you ask me.
I'm pretty partial to the 60/40 bench in the 89, lots of little shit fits in that middle space, but the buckets are waaaaaay more comfortable than the low end bench I ripped out of the 95.
Pro tip: take the floor mount seatbelt bolt just in case yours is jacked. You will not find them in a hardware store, grade 8 11 x 1.25 x 25-40mm length.
Anyone know if this works with the turboed 22RTE?
In the back of my brain, yotarip mentioned running one on 22RTE before he got known for V8s.
Short answer is, if it's the same one as 22RE stock, then yes.
EDIT: btw I was wrong about it directly bolting up, the attachment bolt pattern to the air box doesn't work. I drew up a coupler for my friend to 3D print, our you can go cone filter on the end of the AFM.
I've seen reports of power loss from running "upgraded" filters on 22RE, and there's not much power to lose to start with so I have not completed this yet.
Shit just got real.
Entire 1999 GS400 acquired for $400.
How did you pull that off? And pictures please

Really just luck and good timing, combined with knowing what I was looking for. It is lightly wrecked (hood and radiator damage) and it's in limp mode, but she runs. 200K on the odometer, not even a concern to me. Timing belt was done at 140K and she was generally cared for other than the pile of McDonald's garbage they left inside.
It's currently out back with that sweet ass 300hp VVTi powerplant hiding from the rain under a tarp.
I will be sticking to my plan to start off auto and get her running in the 89, then swapping in the W58. One huge battle at a time.
Sold the master cylinder for half what I paid for the whole car, so now I'm $200 in on 99% of a Lexus GS400.
I figure I'll have to either swap oil pans or mod the front end a fair amount to get this beast in, since it's not an LS400 (ideal for sump fitment as I recall) but for the price I paid, you just accept some collateral damage.
And if I can't get the Lexus subframes to play nice with my Supra, I can try stuffing it under the pickup.
I'm pretty interested in setting up with the Ford 8.8 out back, as has been proven to be a viable and easy upgrade. Can't wait to cruise on a 3.08 LSD for road trips.
I dug around for more info on the Ford rear end swap and it looks like I'll have to settle for a 3.27 ratio diff if I want LSD, which is totally fine. Between that and the 10% longer gears of the W58, this thing may stand a chance of getting traction below 3rd gear and will absolutely gobble up freeway with fantastic MPG.
Here's a link to some Ford rear end stuff I found very useful.
