Mk4 toyota supra cummins diesel build

Here is my current ongoing build for my tow car to haul my fiat around

 

I picked the car up pretty much bare, not much of an interior no engine, box or brakes etc, it was however a twin turbo manual before i got my hands on it

 

i had to give the wheels back as they where worth more then i paid for the car itself confuse

the night i picked it up, brian and his trusty (now dead

16129698_10155001564322710_733249663_o.jpg

 

interior shot, not really much in there at all

16229813_10155016486712710_541528239_o.jpg

 as you can see, not much there

 20170401_175524.jpg

not of the interior

following on

stripping the interior out ready for a half cage and removing all this unnecessary sound proofing, can see the omp wheel and seats ive obtained for the supra too

 

20170414_153137.jpg

one of my least enjoyable tasks, removing bitumin based sound proofing slabs

20170414_203221.jpg

simply the ice kept my drink cold and just made everything else wet

20170414_172645.jpg

 

this is would be the level of interior and comfort i enjoy and deserve, also note location change 

20170415_112649.jpg

 

big band saws, press brakes, cnc machines, powdercoating/wet painting and sheet metal punch machines along with every welder and grinder you could even need, what could possibly go wrong

20170415_114742.jpg

 

This is mu friend scott, scott is an enabler, he generally says yes to any bad idea i have, there needs to be more scotts out there 

20170415_194926.jpg

 

bent up some seat bases

20170416_202340.jpg

all this space for activities, blurry ikr 

20170416_133617.jpg

exo ? nah

20170415_141029.jpg

main hoop and race, can see a failed tube there

20170415_231547.jpg

20170416_202358.jpg

some 3mm chassis spreader plates made up for the front engine mounts 

20170417_171406.jpg

welded in

car now back at my work ,dropped the rear subframe off for a clean and paint, upper arms where poly bushed (bonus) 

20170422_140823.jpg

the arms left on the subframe where seized into the camber bolts so ended up burning them off and bought some after market arms

20170422_145725.jpg

 

i do like a nice Schultz finish, less so when im covered in it

 20170422_173912.jpg

 

subframe and various arms painted, supra parts enough to make your eyes water

20170422_210203.jpg

 

 

tatty looking items to be replaced later on, handbrake cables where expensive and hard to obtain 

20170423_155420.jpg

 

 

test fit of recon'd rear calipers and  discs so i could test fit my temporary wheel to replace my other temporary wheels

20170423_163355.jpg

hammerite smooth, simply lovleh

20170501_100841.jpg

 

20170501_121124.jpg

poly bushed 2nd diff mount, aftermarket rose joined front control arms, a welded shaft, im gonna have to change this 

20170509_201507.jpg

new handbrake cables shoes, fitting kit etc 

20170516_180432.jpg

 

calipers painted black with new braided Hel lines, car theme is black on black

20170517_180333.jpg

similar thing to the front, new discs and pads braided lines, subframe remove stripped cleaned inspected greased and re assembled 

 

20170528_164750.jpg

20170529_195649.jpg

 

bad pic as i had to block certain background items out, but a factory 250hp 6btaa with less then 600 hours on herbiggrin

20170603_210804.jpg

Custom  orderedextreme offset wheels, took 4 months to turn up, when they turned up they where damaged and hanging out of the boxes no (now over 6 months later) still not sorted and i would assume never will be  blankstare

20170713_083111.jpg

After the wheel fek up issue the build idea went downhill very fast but also came to a brilliant idea, will upload more later on tomorrow as the attached file uploader isnt too happy

bit of tube notching by hand, not too bad but not as good as others

20170730_142000.jpg

first glimps of the general idea, no tape measure used and bent it up by hand using the good old metal gate outside, later it had netting hoops mesh base and light bar mounts added 

20170731_174847.jpg

urmmm, 32inch rear tyres and 30 inch fronts, rear wheels where too big to fit even the standard arch, i did cut more out too

ii can also hear you asking who is this handsome  person in the picture, that would be me wink

20930199_838182116329589_296918496_o.jpg

 

 rear panels cut out more, i have also had to sand all the old blue paint off as it was such a poor job it was flaking off with a razor blade in places (whole roof and some on doors)

21222738_10155719210457710_2075008173_o.jpg

 

20930993_838178069663327_81662717_o.jpg

cheap front bumper, i cut the bottom half of it off under the line

22092482_10155794370392710_1761477280_o.jpg

bumper sanded and lights test fitted

22343736_10155826020662710_1321663181_o.jpg

test fit of spats, i have seem to of lost all pictures showing how i tubbed the rear arch from inner skin to outer 

22449183_10155831332282710_75921620_o.jpg

small pic, workshop snow flatting out the arches

23414479_10155909292332710_217118727_n.jpg

another small pic, like i said all blue has to come off mostly by hand in these confined areas

23416209_10155909291777710_1974075216_n.jpg

more sanding, can see front bumper cut and roof rack powdercoated

23433011_10155909291617710_1684242003_o.jpg

test fit of disco 3 arches because why not 

23433121_10155909292797710_292564769_o.jpg

prep prep prep

23476717_10155914382182710_597958684_n.jpg

isolator

23574188_10155915884632710_645899503_n.jpg

2k high build, more flatting in 240 then 800 and 1200 followed

23584412_10155922163562710_1232902880_n.jpg

door finished

24463361_10155971859317710_1177839826_o.jpg

parts  going back on all trim bits clips and tabs take an age to put back on properly after taking them all off for painting

24650966_10155975037657710_1113149463_o.jpg

twin light bars, replaced mount bolts with stainless set and tinted both to a much darker pretty much black tint

25397898_10155999767962710_2141092538_o.jpg

 

crashbar/towbar painted, made out of 5mm box to a 10mm drop plate laser cut and bent up no the press brake with 5mm twist tabs, bolts to the chassis with 2 m8 nuts 6 m8 bolts along with 1 m10 an 1 m12 bolt, should be ok for a while

25353312_10155999767062710_700499828_o.jpg

25353556_10155999766997710_2122892476_o.jpg

wired up an anderson connector that sits under the number plate (will flip up) so i can use jump cables with ease

25625765_10156021886262710_520095358_o.jpg

back end assembled, rear lights tinted, can see the anderson connector also tow hitched spaced out 60mm with a solid block

25673162_10156023764482710_660710527_o.jpg

engine bay prepped and painted, i havent cut the bulkhead yet as engine hasnt arrived (should be in next 2 weeks) so going backwards about this

26610535_10156061971997710_420892126_o.jpg

26610028_10156061970957710_1031852456_o.jpg

new 12v starter motor (originally 24v) new arp flywheel bolts and new pressure plate bolts, new genuine hx40w turbo was going to be used on the rovaru (stalled project) but i a perfect turbo for this engine

 26102917_10156039568412710_1095390789_n.jpg26133314_10156039568582710_1454354865_n.jpg24550596_10155972344047710_1072713578_n.jpg

new clutch rated for 500hp and 800ft lbs

24992866_10155986342592710_400636123_o.jpg

new flywheel too, hand for scale, friction plate is 14" in dia

24891433_10155986342607710_985626399_n.jpg25324099_10156001881482710_603041265_n.jpg

My initial thought was "one Supra wasted" but it got more interesting as the project moved forward. Nice, look forward to more updates.

Love it no matter what. (It's not my car, but still on board.) Can I make a suggestion though. Go full zombie attack mode. Steel bars and spikes everywhere. Your already rolling coal...

Bit of an update

put the fiat to work to finally collect the engine 

28164935_10156185657337710_6830058397880421578_o.jpg

got back no issues abit interesting tho

 

 

28034303_10156185277387710_137686728_o.jpg                      

put the engine in the compound for a little while but you get an idea of the size

28061019_10156191125847710_3867295769154493126_o.jpg

one hell of a good looking fell in that photo i must say

28407571_926760874138379_279927221_o.jpg

all very technical

29666394_10156306913862710_902455321_n.jpg

Put a new reverse mount oil pickuptube and gasket on along with a new sump gasket and rear crank oil seal

followeed by the bellhosuing,New flywheel, clutch, spigot bearing all bolts and fabricobbled some dowel pins and put it all on the engine 

29750468_10156303955357710_29038867_n.jpg

getting there, can see partly the gearbox has been "shaved" of the massive mounting brackets 

29748924_10156303955407710_1937869873_o.jpg

did several small trims

29750414_10156306914372710_988996244_n.jpg

hmm, front section of slam panel was unpicked too for ease of assembly 

29829746_10156306913942710_1075373273_o.jpg

in on 2 mounts there

29830744_10156306914417710_968013942_o.jpg

slight issue with the bonnet, slight rethink needed

29831162_10156306914447710_677544315_o.jpg

middle engine mount pictures, ones on the block are laser cut others by hand

29939234_10156314537817710_807030390_n.jpg

bit of hot snot holding it together, 5mm plate and ive still got to plate the rear gap in with some 3mm 

29920519_10156314141757710_657243108_n.jpg

 

t'ither side

29939706_10156314537907710_664685818_n.jpg

ohh she looks mean, but as you can see its much lower with the engine in there, got to do alot of measurements for custom springs (was expecting this anyway)

30070190_10156316512437710_110202745_o.jpg

2" lumps of billet aluminium, not even a fancy bodge but it will work

30118444_10156323477962710_1704793434_n.jpg

 

with a 2" body lift, ive gone for a 2.5" suspension lift to go with it to even it out, front shocker lowe bracket there, as it doesnt it on a flat worked out extra height needed and how far back to set the upper bolt hole back, all done on a white board with a a rule and marker pen

30429245_10156347097307710_802399634_n.jpg

 

as i dont have the massive press brake at this place just measure up and cut it out of box for pre bent profile, 2 of 1 and the other ones take into account the 5mm offset and height difference being sat ontop of each other

30180254_10156347097312710_119618601_n.jpg

using alloy offut to space them out luckly there 2" gap across the shocker

30185065_10156347097537710_779496323_n.jpg

Not the prettiest out there but its not coming apart ever

30180513_10156347097547710_665709411_n.jpg

cooled down a tad

30429957_10156347097552710_1686208899_n.jpg

on the shocker here with out the blocks in the subframe so it looks all out of place

30121030_10156347097567710_1402491204_n.jpg

same on the rear, possibly the dodgiest thing ive done to date, 2.5" lift again, original shocker tabs angled in and new ones with a slight counter bend to keep the spacing the space, welded inside and then capped outside

30184875_10156349032412710_874399654_n.jpg

The shocker is a gas one so used did the weld it and dunk in water and wet cloth around the base to reduce heat travel

30772356_10156349032432710_1413350692_o.jpg

before any lift

29829830_10156304384122710_1565436386_o.jpg

only the front lifted

30233005_10156347097807710_953726493_o.jpg

front and rear lifted

30546806_10156349095997710_79997418_o.jpg

random picture showing bay with engine in place after the lift (also lowers engine in he bay for bonnet clearance) waiting on a new manifold to turn up still on a 1 month back other from the states

31946165_10156391971917710_1507688513380810752_n.jpg

got to tunnel all this in, trying to source the smaller air assist slave cylinder setup as i have the bigger one that takes up too much room (in passenger footwell)

32327478_10156412764642710_3117517117201580032_n.jpg

gives and idea of height, im around 5'10

30429855_10156349099382710_1775956689_n.jpg

this will be adequate for now 

31786642_10156383716292710_443142261606187008_n (1).jpg

Certainly no lack of photos in this thread. Had to laugh at the Fiat and the massive trailer.

Any progress over the past months? Looking forward to more build pics on this. Immense engine going in, love it!

Abit of an update on this, il use the excuse of bad weather and lack of being arsed as an excuse 

 

space upfront is abit of a premium and i dont want an overly cluttered look but here are a few pictures of a HELLA UP32 vacuum pump which runs off 12v and is upto the task of running the brake vacuum system with no engine input at all

33583400_10156444161537710_8272318049609056256_n.jpg

not exactly the prettiest but bit of paint and will be reet

36439059_10156528892522710_5443705433741066240_n.jpg

pump with hose to a cross piece with a gauge on the top so i can adjust the level of vacuum i want via the switch at the bottom and then goes off to the servo with a check valve, i might run a vacuum manifold so the pump doesnt have to kick in and out for a few presses 

36454466_10156528893072710_6294941043838156800_n.jpg

I am currently undecided between turbo out of the bonnet abit (leaning this way) for intimidation points 

34700775_10156472747162710_8189607502157971456_n.jpg

or going full on soft mode hidden awy

34748249_10156472831257710_5643456292434477056_n.jpg

few random tunnel pics, will have to cut access holes and other items there

40021529_234852663861691_1404169115668578304_n.jpg

40051401_287638612073968_4758723068459745280_n.jpg

40470632_898615900336757_1466972279249305600_n.jpg

bonnets current level of closing

41457234_238994003456085_1944510563107209216_n.jpg

plenty of space on the nose for cooling, 100mm tank and 70mm core on rad and 100mm intercooler core

41488613_611149512613287_4645810714710114304_n.jpg

42058356_461420757699334_8658114363145584640_n.jpg

supra prop vs daf prop

45064114_345144762727365_3593042564636213248_n.jpg

in out in out to test fit for space and all sorts

45082918_2124115414292279_2544735197660708864_n.jpg

a job id been putting off rear subframe front lift kit spacers and locators

45093869_510893046044048_3242724652354633728_n.jpg

45099220_390779984794274_8599730763862114304_n.jpg

as im running an air tank and more than likely air ride for extra lift pair of airmaxxx 580s viair import these and rebrand them to viair 485c gen2s and double the price

45189841_491138081405226_2787155332374200320_n.jpg

zafira powersteering pump tucked away, would of liked it on the other side for shorter piping but no space starting to get it into place with recycled bracket 

45208168_1999959440060337_2788029740471025664_n.jpg

cars taking that long and being stored in the elements some bits not looking too nice already but meh 

45309840_251931242164602_2306208562470191104_n.jpg

45355395_516189798850677_3158460052591869952_n.jpg
