    Just nosing through Car & Classic as you do, came across a few Toyota Supras.
    Having owned a lovely Mk3 turbo a few years ago, it got me thinking, has anyone ever put a 7M-GTE engine from one of these into a Capri?
    Would be a nice conversion I'd think, should fit ok, probably tricky to do though.

    Think there was one alongside Daveyboy20's a while back in practical performance car magazine. Looked good ;)
