Hey man i'm glad your looking at buying a supra.

Personally i'll be buying a PRE-1996 twin turbo when i'm about 6 months from getting my opens and building it upto 600+hp.

First of all...are you looking at buying an australian one or an import?

In japan they continued making JZA80 Supras untill 2002.

I'm not sure if they make auto N/A 2JZ's but i'm sure you could get a "Getrag V160" Gear box (this is the 6 speed manual gear box used in twin turbos) and bolt it onto your N/A 2JZ.

Also, in 1996 they added vvti to the 2JZ (both twin and N/A).

So if you ever wanted to twin turbo your n/a after you get off ur p's it would be easier to do this on a PRE-1996 one.

Hope this helps man.

Ok 1 there is no such thing as a n aussie supra they are ALL imports.

the 2JZ-GE is the non turboed engine AKA N/A engine AKA SZ (standard) SZ-R (Optioned)

Series 1 MKIV supras 1993-1995 N/A's came in auto 4 speed and 5 speed manual

Series 2 MKIV supras 1996-2002 N/A's came in auto 4 speed and 5 speed (SZ) and 6 speed (SZ-R)

ALL aerotops are AUTO! they are mainly series one's very rare to see a series 2 aerotop.

NO you cannot Twin-turbo your N/A you need a different engine the 2JZ-GTE which is a completely different engine.

I have learnt most of this before buying as it does help to know whats what. :D

if youve got anymore questions fee free to ask.

Oh and im on my green P's and trust me there is a HEAP! of power! :D lol

Cheers,

Phil
