I bought the car around a moonth ago and now it runs a little off, the problem is that in accelleration, the car shakes and the idle is off, it also makes a slight popping noise through the exaust. When i punch the gas, the car seems to need to catch- up with the accellerator.
Hesitation and stumbling when accelerating, in 1-5th gear.
Could it be just timing/ idle issues or something more serious?

If you ask the owner for the faults he has had expect an out right lie as to nothing is wrong with the vehicle. With such low mileage better to ask why he is selling it. I suggest that the seller produces proof that he actually owns the car and is capable of selling it legally. Next take it for a good run ( not around the block) and be critical in listing all noises and problems you find. Next take it to a reputable mechanic for a frank appraisal of the faults and see what he comes up with. Any must do repairs should be deducted from the asking price as you will be stuck with that cost.. Considering the age and the listed mileage I am suspicious that the mileage has been tampered with as most cars average 15 to 25 k per year Be very cautious also because the parts supply for an 87 car has dried up and you will most likely only get second hand parts ( Panels)
you will need an additional turbo manifold. I have the correct one its for sale right now on eaby. The ct26 turbo manifold does not allow for proper mounting. I can include directions with the manifold
1987 non-turbo: 10 deg Before Top Dead Center (BTDC) @700 rpm 1987 Turbo: 10 deg BTDC @650 rpm.
To set the timing, you will need to connect a jumper wire between terminals E1 and TE1 on the diagnostic terminal. This diagnostic terminal is located just aft of the engine compartment fuse box. It is a black plastic box marked "diagnostic" on the cover, which flips open to reveal the terminals inside. There is a diagram on the inside of the cover which explains the terminal positions. On the Turbo model, you need to remove the forward section of the engine cover to gain access to the number one spark plug wire.
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.
