    I'd probably go corolla gr just to own a high revving 3cyl.

    Few tasteful bolt on's is all I'd do. I better save my pennies. I bet msrp is mid 40s

    May be easier to save money with the GR if the stock tune is nearly maxed and if bolt ons don't yield much improvement.

    Was that issue with the RS heads or head gasket ever confirmed or resolved? Never much clarity on that.

    I know people said the tune was almost maxed out on those but idk how true that is because weren't people seeing good numbers with bolt ons and a tune?

    I think the rs head gasket was that some cars got mustang gaskets by accident. The rs has a gasket deigned for that motor

    Ah got it.

    The RS is exciting as hell, I've always thought they were pretty sweet

    Roughly 87.5 HP per pot on the RS if I'm not mistaken, and 100 per on the GR

    Found this build on Customtacos; not sure if it’s old news to you guys though. It’s an older build (2009); remote turbo adjacent to the trans on 2TR and intake is plumbed back to the stock air box, no intercooler. Looks like he modified the stock exhaust manifold to mount the turbo, had to relocate his oil filter and running a scavenger pump. Actual build and pics start on around p. 8, interesting idea.

    Quick injector question. So I'm currently chasing an issue with my v8; It starts and then stops. I can keep it running with alittle gas but it's running super rich and with my scanner I can see the fuel trims are pulling all fuel out at like -20.

    If an injector was bad would it still sound like the rest? I pulled all of the injectors and cleaned them but nothing seemed to change. I should note my fuel pressure sits perfectly at 40psi as well.

    Picture of me cleaning for attention lol

    Any codes?
    What did you recently change?
    Try cleaning the maf.
    Faulty O2 sensor? Bad coolant temp?
    Is it a genuine Denso maf? I had a ebay one and it did change the tune. Had to cough up the coin at yota dealer.

    It does show a location. Sadly, it was good enough, and he never followed through with a closing to the build. Just fell off.

    I parked it late Feb so it just sat for a while but I did change the alternator recently.
    I'm getting an occasional maf code p0100 so I'm looking into that but what's funny is the obd2 scanner shows me the intake temp and maf readings properly so im not sure why its throwing a code when at the same time I can read the sensor lol. I have 3 oem denso mafs and swapping them made no change. I also swapped to my spare ecu and there was no change, So my next mission will be to check the wire traces. O2 seem to be reading what they should as well.

    I'm probably going to start saving for a Holley terminator x max lol

    Thanks - Ace Race does have some mild steel stuff but it's fairly limited, and most of what I've found online is from plumbing shops, so I may just try to source something locally.

    Anyone ever have a blocked exhaust, cat? I'm having issues building boost, everything under the hood checks out.
    I can recommend these kits, they work well:
    OTC 5605 Compression
    Mityvac MV8500 Vacuum/Pressure

    Is it noticeably weaker under throttle? I had a pin hole once in my gauge supply and thought I was having issues. Found it when I did pressure test for leaks.

    I had a blocked cat on a Na Nissan truck. Wouldn't run much higher than 1500 rpm and minimal pedal input.

    Also check for cracks/exhaust leaks pre turbo.

    Runs butter smooth through all rpm and builds to 2 psi quick, it maintains it but not past it.

    I did ace race parts for my manifold but that was forever ago when we didn't have material shortages.

    I had a clogged cat once. Makes the truck feel like it's constipated or trying to rev out but it's not wanting to.

    My manifold didn't suffer that, I posted a pic of it recently; it is possible it has since happened but I doubt that, from the outside it looks ok.
