    Dyno'd my stock L28ET today - coolant everywhere!

    You need to calibrate it with the "sequencer" mode Usually flashes 3 numbers on the gauge for 3 seconds each as it starting. 13.3 16.6 and 19.9 If I remember go to https://www.14point7.com/blogs/news/16539352-maximizing-accuracy-between-spartan-2-and-megasquirt Look at tunerstudio numbers as its flashing on the gauge then use the excel spreadsheet to input those numbers. Those numbers look very normal, remember this is a bone stock 5psi on a stock t3 . With a decent modern turbo, exhaust mods, modern efi and fuel to support you should see double that.

    Single Turbo Manifolds

    I have the engine mounts already . Do you have tranny mounts for r154. Geno what didnt you like about the motor mounts to forward? I wasnt going with the cast log pieces I was thinking along the tlines header/tubular manifold. I need some input because I read up some of the 2jz vvti motors had clearning issues. I think its the water neck Im not 100% sure though.

    Single Turbo Manifolds

    Hey guys slowly gathering parts here for the future JZ swap. I will be running CX mounts and gt3582 just want to know if theres a single manifold design to stay away from in terms of clearing shock tower. What are you guys running? I was thinking the lines of a cheap manifold and have my friend add some nice thick welds as reinforcements.
  7. Hey thanks for interest Take your time whenever your ready IM super swamped now actually I have 4 I need to finish this month. 1. Yes $750 is harness w/fusebox and air/clt temp sensors 2. You can use your stock injectors most guys upgrade since you are doing a standalone Engine Management System that control every aspect of the tune.
  8. Your inbox is full? or mine I tried to PM you I will take that n42 intake if available shipping to 13669

    L6 DIS Brackets (LSX) Are Available Once Again

    I have sent a couple of PM's my guess is hes busy or not doing this. If hes not doing this anyone have the file I could cut them locally I could use a set for my ls coil swap.
  10. First thing off epic build thats some crazy stitch welds never seen that many. I was once told by an old timer that too much could be overkill and be counter intuitive if god forbid accident since these are areas that need to be crumple. With that said torque usually raises the diff up and most of your mount/bracing is targeting to the bottom. Hence I see why you want to do a 3.0 maybe just a simple brace from where you already have the mount like attached in the pic in yellow? you can go straight or do a little bend with a slight gusset.

    As the guys mentioned the drawbacks are EMI inside the ECU but lots of people do it this way with no issues, the other drawback is you need to install 3 BIP's for a multi coil (caravan , ford 6 cylinder coil) OR 6 BIP for ford pencil Coils firing wasted. Some people would rather just hook up the EDIS 6 Ignition module to fire the coil packs its easier from a modification perspective. Since we were talking Microsquirt you cant add BIP's you would have to go ms2 OR just run the EDIS 6 ignition module.

    Micro squirt is great dont get me wrong but with 1 high output its very limited. I will choose a Megasquirt 2 ECU especially nowadays when fan control is not the only output you want. To the original poster I can get you everything you need to either build an ms2 system ( same price as DIY , from a kit ie sensors, connector plugs, wiring loom, relay board or custom fusebox) Or I could make a turnkey package for you. Either way PM me I could help you choose a package. For EDIS ignition system you can run the module and dont need to do any board mods. You have to use a Ford CAS. There is benefits to this ie: less work to do and a limp mode feature incase shit. Drawbacks is you have to use the Ford CAS and its limited in the trigger offset *unless code has changed* OR add high current drivers to the ECU, Run any wasted COP or multi fire coil packs. Also benefits and drawbacks to this.
  13. That's a good idea. People do love more pics .The last 5 kits already included detailed instructions, specific harness diagram for each customer (incase they got additional EBC or wideband added) and pictorial of what's included. In the original post I did mention it removes the AFM, ecu and harness: but not fusible links. I have a new site just opened its still a soft launch been working on vacation! www.protunerz.com the harness/ecu will be up there soon with additional options and information. Guys I have some great products Soley manufactured for our cars. I can't say too much but will be definetly something that's unique. Hopefully coming in the later year please follow on Instagram and our Facebook page when released. Instagram: protunerz_com Facebook: PROTUNERZZ Website: http://www.protunerz.com

    Exposed's 1jz Build

    How much power did she make?
  15. I went with a chinese gt35 on my last build I also own a genuine garrett gt35r. They have journal and BB types watch out theres some that say BB but only the compressor side I believe. They are a fraction of the price and they have gotten much better in the manufacturing side. I dont have much mileage on it but so far shes breathing 17psi no issues. Also just price difference between a name brand journal bearing and BB is the equivalent of the best chinese turbos. Many people have been running them for years, ie youtube channel boostedboiz sloppy mechanics etc etc.
