2001 Toyota Solara
This coupe has a 3.0L 1MZ-FE v6 transverse mounted engine, a five speed MANUAL transmission, fully adjustable TRD racing suspension and a dealer-installed TRD supercharger.
Most of the primary team showed up to check out this car from Craigslist. After much debating, discussion and negotiating, we towed this away for $800. We rented a flat-bed car trailer from U-Haul and brought it to the shop to start tinkering. Our chief mechanic had it running & driving within 25 minutes of being home. The clutch slave cylinder had air in the line.
More to come!
Next up is removing the engine & transmission to replace the spark plugs, repair the exhaust and oil-pan, replace timing belt, water pump, and all pulleys, idlers, and belts. We’re going to need to rebuild the supercharger, replace the clutch, put in a fire suppression system, and then get it off to fab for racing seat and roll cage install.
