    SUPRA PARTS?

    I also need new LCA's and have used the daizen poly bushings in the past but i would like to use rubber this time. Where are people getting the supra LCA's, are they just taking it up the ass at the dealer or is there a supra aftermarket parts site somewhere? Thanks -Jake

    car runs bad cold, but seems fine when warmed up

    Thanks for the fast reply! yes i have reset the ecu and the codes both come up immediatly. i have swapped the TPS with a known good sensor from my other car with no difference. so unless its in the harness id say the DTC 41 is only a symptom and not the true problem. Thanks again! -Jake

    rear gear drive ratios?

    Stock Ls400 has 225/55-16 wheels which are ~25.7 inches in diameter depending on manufacturer. Stock OPEN differential on an Ls400 is 3.912, however this nets an unobtainable maximum speed with the stock 250hp. I swaped in a supra TT 4.272 LSD and my top speed only droped from 149 to 145...
