Its a 2JZ, it won't break. :D

 

Its homemade, you newer know...

 

I tested Defi gauges while engine running. Had to order one new sensor cable for oil temp. All other worked fine.

Today I made better brackets for gauges. Soon that dash is ready for installation.

Nice work with the gauge mounts, but why did you use a massive boost gauge instead of a speedo.

 

 

My Speedhut gauges are great, but those defi are definitely better quality, if only I could have budgeted for them.

I bought those gauges long time ago and I thought it was good idea to get something special (115mm boost gauge).

Im gonna use digital gps speedometer on top of the dash. Probably with external gps antenna.

 

Dash is now in place and it looks good already. Pictures coming later. I continued with wiring.

It was time to change flushing oil away. I saw nothing special except oil colour. Not good thing using E85 ethanol fuel in first starts and not getting oil warm enought...

After that. New oil and filter in. Bleeding rear brakes and ready to make some mapping :)

With my friend helping online we made whole new fuel and ignition maps and it runs smoother again. Throttle pedal was limited to 50% at first.

Rear brakes are too small and got some fire problems in brake pads :D but soon it will be ready to dyno. Boosting only 0.55bar at now.

 

Have to try next with full throttle :)

Ride height check after exhaust build. Everything looks Ok. Front airdam is the lowest part of car.

I liftet suspension up 25mm after that. Looks doesnt matter at this time.

 

After some testing with cardboard and different colours I desided to go with headlight covers (inside black)

Friend helped me with sticker (or what it is called. :D  )

Even headlight cover brackets painted black (it will need black screws too)

That's gonna be louder for the driver than for the by-stander. Exhaust exiting under car is super loud inside the car. Can you find a way to turn it out? Maybe the turbo will absorb some sound?

 

Yes, turbo absorb sound and 6cyl is not loudest anyway. Mostly when its used I will drive helmet in head :)

In dyno we will find out what difference it makes in power curve.

I have spent some time creating Evo2 engine.

Finally it was time for first test drive! Without doors and hood :D Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFQUrZjmXNk
