What up guys! My name is Jerry, I live in USA and I have 20,000 V$ to find cars.

My friend told me, he have 1997 Toyota Supra 2JZ-GE for sale because he don't have time and no money afford to fix problems but overall very good.

This Supra have problem;
Exhaust muffler and brushes need replaced, old one brushes have snapped then exhaust rear muffler dropped on road.
Radiator is kinda leaky, plus it need new anti-freeze fluid.
Steering felt wobble and shaky while driving higher speed.
2 tyres need replaced, they are worn out.

This have mods;
17 inch Advan Raicing TCII.
Painted caliper red.
Koni Sport non adjustment coilover.
Apexi cat back exhaust.
HKS air panel filter.
Recaro Evo XI seats.

He put price is 12,000 V$. I told him to I need time to think about it. I felt it bit cheap for that car.

Here photo I take pics...





Should I buy it or walk always?

I found other supra for sale on internet, it 13,000 V$ low mileages Supra Mk4, sadly it gone off the list.

So, I did bought yellow Supra....

I went the shop to buy anti-freeze and uprated exhaust hanger mount, they just cost me 100 V$.
Then I went to wheels garage to fix steering wheels felt shaky and wobble when driving high speed and two tyres need replaced, they cost me 150 V$
Steering wheel felt shaky and wobble, has been fixed, because driver side front wheel have missing weight.

Aftermarket radiator - 342 V$

Happy birthday to me!

My friend who have same as my car, he bought TRD spoiler but he changed his mind, he hear I got yellow Supra, he asked me nicely "I know it your birthday and you love TRD, I have real TRD spoiler, I'm come to your garage to give you TRD spoiler."

I replied to him "Why you waiting for? Drop off at my garage!"

He did arrive and drop off, it was primed base, so it ready for add colour.


I know i bought my Supra dirty cheap, one thing that kept running around my mind, it kept said "Cylinder leaking? Lost power?.." blah blah...

So, I remove intake system, spark plug cover, HT lead, and spark plug. I check spark plug, they all okay but I seen Cylinder 3 it look bit dry than other spark plugs, so I test used Cylinder Leaking Test. Here photo, 0-40% is fine, 40% to 60% is medium okay, more than 60% is problem.

I called seller, if he know that and he told me, engine run no oils leaking. I think myself, it must be worn valve.

I thinking, if valve got chipped or cracked, I thinking head going get posh and port with aftermarket cam and uprate valve system, does I need change piston or something for fitting turbo?

I may selling this car, if I can't afford repair engine...
