I found a 93 white Supra at a local dealer, 3.0 non turbo, etc...
it has 22.000 kms wtf.. (dunno how much in miles..like 10000 miles I think)

is that possible without an engine swap or anything?

I shouldnt even consider it right? confused

if the mileage is really that low (can you get vehicle history reports in your country?), go for it! It'll cost a few grand or more to turbo, but a TT Supra is gonna cost double that.

i believe it.. A dealer is selling a 1996 240 with a sr20 turbo motor swap.. And it only has 20 somethin thousand miles on the car. It has about 2000 miles on the new motor. So some ppl dont want to drive a car that they put a lot of money into.. what if it gets wrecked? id say get it and turbo!!

some people may not like to drive the supras around a lot so the mileage is slightly possible, but i'd test drive it

another honda kill story is always welcome

incorrect.

Slightly slower than stock tt supras? Not true. The only kits for the NA-T given the basic kit gives you 325WHP. Which is better than the stock tt 280WHP plus the 5 speed on the NA Supra will give the Supra a better launch from a dig compared to the tall gears of the TT 6spd and keep in mind that the NA supra weighs less than the TT by around 60lbs. Also, the basic kit will cost a good 2Gs. But you need a bc, safc2, bov, wastegate, ic, gauges for boost, oil pressure, and EGT, and fuel pump. Add all that up and the PRICE of the PARTS ONLY will be a good 17000 including the car. Add prices for labor of installing the parts, fabricating ic piping, and tuning and you got a good 19000 hole to pay out of. Also, you risk breaking your 5 spd without a clutch so include a clutch job and a rps 6 puck clutch and you got a $20000 hole to dig out of. That's a lot of cash and most people aren't willing to dish out the cash to turbo their NA supras but some people have on SF. MKIV supras are hot cars but a lot of people shy away from NA supras. Too many people don't know the differences between the stock NA and the TT so a lot of cars try to race you and sometimes you'll get caught in the mush of it.

Mileage is a little low for a 93 IMO. Also, check and see if the car passed smog from the dealer.
