  • My first CarPC install: 91 Toyota Supra

    I've wanted to put a PC in my supra ever since I heard about this site(A year ago) and I finally got around to doing it.

    First off, the car:

    I love my car. Its and inline 6 with 235hp stock. It was actually a hand me down from my sister when she bought it brand new in 1990(for something rediculous like $42k Canadian). This has a single turbo and targa top which still gets looks everyday.

            Thanks for the comments!
            This car has been babied its whole life. 5w40 full synthetic oil every 3-4 months and has never had anything less than high octane (91-94) gas. In the winter we spray underneath the car so that salt doesn't rust out the paint. This is the original coat of paint from when we bought it new and its never been garaged(don't have one).

            The headgasket went already once though so we've replaced that a few summers ago. Real pain in the ***. To tell you the truth, ever since it was replaced it was never the way it used to be.

            Anyway, I've been spending a lot of time on this carpc thing the last few days so I will update pics as soon as I can.
