I always hear people talking about checking the compression in a Supra before you buy it. Why is this? Were Supra's known to have bad compression or something? Anyone explain?

you pretty much need to check the compression in any turbo car because of the extra pressures associated w/ boost

however, since Supras run much higher boost than we do (BPU or even stock to stock, let alone single turbos), it is that much more important to check it out to make sure it is still okay

ok

Ahhhhhhhhh....I see. Thanks for the bit of info. I appreciate it. BTW what PSI do stock Supra's run? Like 14? What about BPU Supra's?

yes, I believe most stock Supras run 14 psi, and BPU run 18-22 psi
