  1. Factory Five GTM Forum
    Hi all, I did a forum search and found a few references to using the 2JZ engine, but no references regarding converting a supra to a GTM... So - I'll ask the question then see if everyone falls about laughing or not... :) In your experience, opinion, knowledge, etc: If I purchased the stock...

    I am thinking going the 94-95 donor route and by looking for one it seems there quite a few cheap 6 cyl models available, is the running gear usable from these? would the transmission rearend suspension etc be the same as a 5L model? I would find a 5L motor separately . Thanks for any info

    I have a wrecked 95 GT vert that has only been parted out on the interior... had planned to use it for a donor build, but bought the Mk IV complete kit so I only need the engine and rear end now.

  9. Factory Five GTM Forum
    I'm looking for suggestions on the best(cheapest) way to rid myself of the donor chassis. I left a "contact me" with a company that called themselves auto recyclers and even have a video of cars being demonished by a special hydrolic machine. I recieved a call from a lady, whom had appearently...

    After what felt like a very long search, and several failed deals with flaky craigslist people, I have obtained a G3F donor. The car is a 2001 Jetta TDI sedan, with about 211k on the clock. In the last month it has had a new turbo, alternator, AC condensor, and battery installed. I have not...

  14. Factory Five GTM Forum
    Hi everyone. I am doing some preliminary planning for a GTM project and I wanted your opinions on this. Is it cheaper to purchase new GM parts for the GTM or is it cheaper to buy a donor Corvette? I am tentatively planning to use a new crate LS6 so I would be "getting rid of" the engine in the...

    I have a 1988 Mustang GT that would make a great donor car. It runs and drives, but the turn signals and reverse lights do not work. I bought the car expecting an easy fix and restoration, but it is beyond my finances and my skill. It is a 88 GT 5 speed with a Borla Exhaust. I will include...
