89 Toyota Supra

so, long story short.... had the car for about 3years, been listed between my parents names and now my father is looking to finish it up for an "Economy" car... *cough, cough* anyway, we're looking for someone to convert the wiring harness from manual to auto (as my dad would rather not put more parts into it than what has been already... this some minor body work and interior work left to do, its mostly that wiring harness and tuning the motor

does anyone know and repitable people that can perform the wiring harness and maybe proper tuning in the chicago land area??? we can ship wiring harness but deffinitly tuning needs to be done within my area... looken for opinions, if you guys would like, ill pos pictures of her in the sad shape shes in right now...

Re: 89 Toyota Supra

Re: 89 Toyota Supra

hey man, I just picked up a turbo supra so I'm learning my way around this car as well haha. But as far as converting from Auto to manual, the wiring harness does not need to be changed, same goes for the ecu.

More like 2-4k max in great condition. Sorry but the mk3 just isnt as collectable right now. But it could change in the next 10yrs if u hold on to it and keep the miles low.

Changing the drivetrain will lower the value as well.
