Show me your engine and I’ll tell you how much you care!   So today we will find out just how much the previous owner serviced his Supra.   After going into some effort to transplant the engine, you’d imagine it would be indicative of a bit of care factor. After all, who spends upwards of $5k on a new engine then doesn’t take care of it?   With the low kms, it’s difficult to ascertain the original condition of the engine, that said.
