Goodness that is quite a difference. If I remember it should just come off and be fairly easily swappable. That might be the solution to the water leaking aspect from a seal perspective. Now if the manifold tightening down pushes the housing or something we would need a short bolt to solve that one aspect.

 

I have to say your drawings are on point.

I'd still like to see a bigger vacuum port, but that might just be nit picky. I know at work we have small lines pulling large volumes of vacuum.

 

My recent mishap with AN fittings makes me a bit nervous with the boost solenoid, but that is probably a knee jerk reaction on my part.

I ended up switching the gasket on the mishimoto thermostat and its fixed my leaking issue for the time being. For anyone thinking of using a mishimoto thermostat check your gasket height. I bought a different gasket from the local parts source, its a "Fel-Pro" gasket and the part number is "16325-62010".

That is awesome! JZ engines have always been favorites of mine. 1jz sounds like it would be a riot. Would love to get one, but I'm too invested into just making a properly functioning and half decent looking car at the moment so I'll have to settle with living vicariously through build threads like this one haha.

Goodness that is really sunken in. Looks far more correct now.

 

I think I killed my boost control solenoid either that or it is sticking really badly. When it works it controls boost as far as I can tell, but when it doesn't it overboosts till the boost cut which I am thankful I have.

 

My mishap with AN lines is in regards to them coming loose on my turbo oil feed on both ends, despite following the recommended tightening. If it was a boost reference line that comes loose to a boost solenoid, then boost solenoid doesn't supply good control to the waste gate, best case scenario you hit boost cut, worst case scenario you boost until something pops, if your lucky a coupler if you are unlucky a piston.

 

Regardless, I am stupid excited for you. Please don't neglect the basics! You seem way more methodical, and legitimate, but rushing and forgetting to hookup an oil pressure gauge or something like that is a really bad day.

fingers crossed I don't get a bad solenoid or I havent hooked it up incorrectly. 

I have my wide band, and oil pressure gauges hooked up just need to tidy up the set up and mount them properly. I was thinking of redoing my electrical panel and building a cover just to tidy everything up and make it look better.

 

Anyone ever use or see someone use MDF for this? Bouncing back and forth between aluminum and mdf at the moment.

MDF seems to separate on me around the edges. I know some people will seal or tape them for longevity. Plastic can be a nice alternative if you have a local composite supply store, usually they have off cuts that are really affordable. My center panel is a sheet of steel, nice because if you have to you could ground the whole panel if you wanted to simplify some wiring and bolt directly to it.

Did you have a steel fitting in the turbo with an aluminum hose end?

I'm not really sure the material, the hose ends are for sure aluminum. The adapters don't feel like steel pieces from what I've seen, so I would assume aluminum as well. 

 

My guess is the material mismatch can cause fittings to get loose? Perhaps the different rate of expansion or something of that nature?

Yeah, that's exactly what happens.

Combining aluminum and steel also leads to galvanic corrosion. This will treat the aluminum as an anode and start corroding.

 

If you ever have to run a steel bolt through an aluminum piece, make sure there is some sort of coating around the aluminum so that the two metals aren't actually in contact.

For the past little bit I was bouncing back and forth between the idea of cutting up the body and adding flares or leaving them as is. I had bought myself a set of diamond racing wheels but they ended up rubbing on the caliper after switching to wilwood calipers. So instead of running a little spacer I figured I'd just waste money on a proper set of shoes.
Placed an order and the guys did a great job on the barrels and the refinish, the wheels came out amazing! now I just need to find or make a decent set of flares to go with it.

And just when I thought winter was over, BAM a blizzard hits....

I believe the person I dealt with was Tony, has a shop called Love20Bee. 

 

I checked the marugen flares out. Noticed they have a couple different styles the only thing is I cant seem to find any sizing on these. Will need to do some searching and post what I find out.
