    i think minimum damage will result compared to other cars because of Hyper (something technical) design of Engine head.

    but it does not mean that u dont change it and let it break
    Keep a cool head and wear seatbelts!

    i agree with u cowboy, actually there are 2 kinds of mechanism, timing belt and timing chain.
    timing belt mechanism is better than other due to its location and it's far more easier to inspect/replace.

    Timing belt broke in my father's car (Civic 95 Ex)on the motorway and so far no problems with the engine or anything. Haven't seen inside the cylinders but performance is the same.

    Its because of engine design or more appropriatly, cylinder head design. Cylinder heads with the aforementioned capability are known as "non-interference" heads, meaning that if the timing belt snaps or breaks, the piston face does not make contact with the valves. whilst most (gasoline) OHC and newer engines have this characteristic diesel engines do not because of them being comprssion ignition engines.

    Hey Fli-Gti Right on the dot. By the 2jz is Yamaha design and manufactured but proprietary not toyota design and yamaha manufacture. And one more thing "E-JZA80-ALMVF for the NA and E-JZA80-ALFQZ" these are Chasis or Frame codes for the Toyota Supra Turbo and non-turbo. BTW, where is your workshop, what kind of modification you do, do you need any turbokits or intercoolers let me know.

    They're not chassis codes technically speaking.
    Only "A70/80" is the frame/chassis code for the Supra. M/G/JZ signifies engine, ALFQZ signifies model/trim code. All put together referred to as the model code.
    Furthermore, thankyou for the kind offer but i'm okay.
    Regards.
