SOURCE: engine compatible

Yes. However it is a very expensive swap $5000 to $8000 to do it right. You will need the 1J or 2J engine, transmission, wiring harness, ecu, and alot of other pieces to do the swap. The engine brackets will need to be modified and you will have to upgrade your brakes. This kind of swap requires a good knowledge of the Toyota Supra and the engines. I do not recommend this swap for a beginner. A cheaper way is to take a 7M-GTE and upgrade the internals and turbo.

SOURCE: my heater is slowly blowing

Go to an auto parts store such as NAPA or any place you can purchase a new thermostat. It is likely that your thermostat is stuck in the open position, and needs to be replaced. This is the most common issue with temperatue problems in any vehicle as you describe it.

Be sure to have the exact Model Year, Type and Engine size (e.g. V-6 350 liter engine) when you go to purchase the part; the clerk behind the counter will be willing and able to assist you with locating where the themostat is in the engine (under the hood) and might even assist you with showing you that while you're in his parking lot -- just be polite and ask for the assistance.

Keep the box and your receipt to return the part if this does not solve your problem.

Good luck!

1987 Supra What is the in-dash warning light left of the temp guage? symbol: carriage light, filter?

Radiator, usually comes on when the exterior plastic tank gets low . Sometimes these leak as a result from low antifreeze and the plastic tank will crac k at the base, where the wire comes out which activates the little symbol light to the left of the temp gauge you are referring to.

The thermostat may be wearing out. A thermostat controls the engine temperature to keep it at a consistent temperature, The other fan will probably turn on if you turn on your Air Conditioner.
