    The fact that a two door sports coupe weighs 3800lbs means it better damn sure have every gadget known to man built in

    Nice car, those are a blast.
    My current car (87 Toyota Supra) made it 270,xxx miles on the original longblock. The only reason it didn't last longer was that I had a severe oil leak and lost all of the oil for a minute or so. Surprisingly I drove it another 30,000 miles after that before it developed a rod knock. There is a guy here in town with 59x,xxx miles on a 86.5 supra but, I think that may be a record. A friend of my dad drove a 22r powered Toyota pickup well over 1,000,000 miles before it was wrecked. He had minimal trouble (4 clutches 1 transmission and a few other odds and end)that impressed me.
    A friend here in town has a VR4 that he loves to death but, is always broken (his own fault mostly) he has almost 120,000 miles on his VR4.
    Again those cars are a blast, Enjoy it.

    car tops out at 154 on the stock ecu, a friend of mine in highschool had one.

    nice car but expensive to mod.

    car does not top out at 154 on stock ecu...nobody swaps the ecu on these unless they go to AEM. Most people use piggyback in these cars. Regardless...trust me...they dont top out at 154....i drive a 3000GT as well...the nonturbo tops out at 154...none of these cars are electronically speed limited, but they are rev limited from the factory to 7k rpms. Many people lift this to 8300rpms because this is safe on the stock block.
    slow carputer project...real slow due to college
