You're working on the R33 GT-R?

On the other note/poll though

Would you guys prefer the MKV Supra with a Toyota developed turbo inline 6 but Auto only or a MKV Supra with the given B58 with Manual
oooooo Good one. I probably am fine with the b58 as long as its manual...

MKV when it comes with a third pedal
Manual for sure

We live in an interesting time; everyone is looking for something to be pissed off at these days. BMW makes amazing turbo straight-six engines. Toyota utilizing BMW is definitely not a bad thing.

Toyota has not made a straight six engine since the 90s. The one performance engine they have in their stable is the 3UR engine in the RCF/GSF/LC500. If Toyota used that engine instead, everyone would be bitching about how it's a V8. Don't even get me started about how the drive train on those cars is absolute crap.

First, it's the 2UR. The AA80E is old (first 8 speed ever if I remember correctly), but statistically it has no reliability issues at all and it shifts pretty quick for it's age. Not crap by any means. The direct shift 10 speed in the LC is no slouch either.

The only issue with the 2UR is that it only comes in heavy sedans and coupes, otherwise it sounds amazing and makes very decent numbers for its age being NA in a world of FI german and American V6/V8s.

The Supra should have gotten the next Lexus performance engine, a TT V6 like the V35A. If it did, even with only an auto, all the haters would shut up (probably not the manny tranny lovers though).

haha, iirc they are within ~30lbs of each other, with the 34 being 3430 and the 33 being 3395

it's just funny because people always make jokes about the 33 being a boat, which compared to the 32 it certainly is, but the 34 is the same damn thing
SO TRUE, I never understood why people hate the r33 so much, I always liked them.

by "crap" I was referring to the gearing. I'm sure it's reliable; most if not everything by Toyota generally is. I distinctly remember test driving the IS-F and whenever i wanted to shift even remotely close redline, it wouldn't shift and it would just "beep" which was incredibly annoying and ultimately what killed the deal for me.

I'm hoping and praying. New to the forums, and joined to see if there is any news or rumour about MT. It seems like it's probably worth waiting one more year then? If they just let us put in a deposit for MT and show them the demand...

Without the stupid ADM though. Can't deal with that.
Ya I won’t be paying any adm, I’ll travel to find one without it. And if I can’t, that’s on Toyota for losing a sale.
