But... It is from a strange land, and the wheel is on the wrong side.

My car's been to Wilson't Autotech on the west end uite a few times. I've only ONCE had a problem with the service that I've received there, and the tech who worked on the car that one time isn't there anymore.

(The incident in question was an oil change, and when I looked under the hood, there was oil on the cam cover, fan shroud and radiator support. Not a lot, but it was there, so basically the guy just didn't use a rag with the funnel after pouring the oil.)

They're not cheap, but they do good work. They did a lot of the maintenance on my former boss' GS300 (2JZ-GE) which has almost the same mileage as my Supra. (Last time I talked to him, he was within 40,000 kms of me.)

For the 7M guys out there, they also know to torque the head gasket to 72 ft-lbs on stock bolts, or more on ARP hardware. I had them do a re-torque on my 7M-GE when it had 175,000 kms on it. It never blew the HG, and I pulled it with 450,000.
