Phillyb (Gary) MK4 Supra build.

So many older members know the IS300 build that was done, Philly is a family man now and does not have the time and money to throw into cars anymore like he did when he was living the single life.

So now im still using his login like before. (Philly is my counsin)

This is a slow progress but im saving things up and looking for deals as i move on.

1994 Hardtop Manual NA

When i first got the car.



First thing i did was install coilovers, wheels and

Fortune Auto 500 series Coilovers (I love these i went to Richmond Virginia and they built these and installed them for me)



Skipped alot of photos when i was doing the turn signal and headlight install but this is with the 97/98 headlights and turn signals.


Also installed a blitz Nur Spec Exhaust


I had some issues with the idle and something didnt sound right, so i tore it apart to find that the intake cam was broken and the oil pump was bad as well.



Got the head resurfance and block was cleaned up.



All new gaskets were installed, GTE Head gasket was installed with ARP headstuds. I had ideas of just boosting this GE motor but changed my mind later.



Got a set of GTE brakes front and rear for 250$ from a friend and decided to strip them down and rebuild them completely with new pistons and all.

Stripped the brakes and soda blasted them for a smoother finish. Prepped and ready for preheat.



Stop Tech Rotors and Pads with SS Brakelines.


They were sprayed matte Grey with clear coat finish.




Before and after



Ill have more soon with the new motor and drivetrain.

Putting stickers on fake wheels to pass them off is the same as a girl rocking a fake Gucci or a Lamborghini kit car or some fake Jordan's. If you can't afford to play then rock the lower end brands and stop playing yourself.

Nice stuff!

Too many people try to impress others and build their car to what they know someone will like.
You lose sight on what you like, when you simulate your likes around others dislikes.

Haha thanks guys I'm working on it slowly but stacking parts.

As for phillys is300 idk if he's driven it lately. It broke a tab on the alternator to block. He swapped it out for another oem motor and since the baby hasn't done much of anything car related other than the ganador mirrors

The hardtop I see being worth more years from now. I had a Targa before and didn't care for it much
