    This is the first time I have ever heard of a Chrysler engine in a Supra.

    Start reading threads on ballast systems, you can plumb in your own automated ballast system with bags in the popular locations (under the rear seat, in the rear ski locker, and under the bow). You can probably run around 1500 lbs comfortably with the correct prop.

    Micheal Hunter, yea the Chrysler engine were in some of the very early Supra's seen them a few times with the 440. The proto type Allegro I saw once had a 440 in it. Was crazy to see a proto type.

    a 13x11 prop is probably what you're looking for. I'd go with Acme, couldn't tell you the prop number though
