Anyone know what speed a mkIII supra tops out at in 1st gear? My buddy says 15mph, 20mph at the most

auto or 5speed?

n/a or turbo?

reason i ask is the n/a and turbo automatics are the same but the turbo 5speed is a r154 and the n/a 5speed is a w58

I had an 88' Turbo for a few months.

It could get up to 100km/h in 2nd, which is roughly 60mph.. Not sure if that helps.

Perhaps he's just a bad driver or his clutch is slipping like crazy... When I think of where a gear tops out, I'm not typically indicating what speed it's at when I granny shift into the next gear and listen to the engine lug along at 1500 RPM for a couple seconds.

or perhaps he's a typical mk3 n/a owner. which puts him just barely one notch above civic owner

Ouch.. but then.. that could be said about a lot of supra owners in general (MKIV guys can be real pricks). Really not the same community.. which is probably why I still hang out with the celica crowd, who are (mostly) pretty cool folks. :hehe:

I know quite a few PacNW mk4 owners. Maybe they arent typical of the crowd, but they arent elitest at all. Even my mk2 supra and 1GC got "mad props" from those guys, but I take your point. Of course I was generalizing the mk3 guys as well but after several years on supramania I came to accept that stereotype as based in reality.
