As you may have seen have had some probs with the Aristo TT, i have decided to go for a full engine rebuild at mkiv store/interpro in Bristol, engine will be as good as new and will need running in again, not cheap at £4000 but including purchase price of car i have a quick, luxurious car for about £7500, body work is spotless, full leather, lsd so why not, it should also be about 320bhp once done, rebuild involves new valves, rings, seals, oil pumps, water pump, skimming and fettling of everything, full acid decoke of entire engine etc etc, will need to run her in for 1000 miles at 4000 rpm max and no full throttle. Opinion from Martin at mkiv store is that as these cars look like standard 4 door saloons people forget what they are dealing with and do not take care of the engine as well i.e full throttle when not up to oil temp no cooldown etc, whereas with the supras you are thinking more along the lines of i am in sports car.He has seen these problems a lot with Aristos and not as much with Supras. Rebuild comes with 12,000 mile warranty also.I will look after it also so engine should give me another 100,000 miles plus.Turbos will be checked also, but i have another low mileage set to put in if needs be.

Glad you getting everything sorted! :P

No offence, but for 7.5k, you could pick yourself up a 99 mk2 shape Aristo TT... :crybaby:

Not with a new engine in it, plus don't like look of mk2, so 7.5 k + 4k would be 11.5 for same
