    Ra ta taaa. Took me about 4 hours to get it swapped out after prepping some the day before and all back together. Only needed about 1.5 gallon of water and new oil/filter. Gaskets for both ends of test pipe are toast so she’s got a little rumble and whistle now. Literally finished at 1pm Sunday after working a 14 hour OT shift. Then had to come pick up a 14 tonight. Im getting too old for all this work stuff. About 80 miles on it and all is well. Noticed the alternator pulley is about to fall off when I had the front clip out. Guess I’ll do that next to ensure I make the trek home.

    Gonna yank the motor completely soon for BT prep, rods, pistons, crank bearings, clutch, and do fueling for impending boost increase. Hopefully happy fun time when done.

    Clutch savior was one of my crew. There were two pan bolts that were only assessable by rotating the flywheel just right. A 10mm socket was too fat to get at them but they also have a 5mm allen recess. My 3/8 drive 5mm allen was also too fat to get at it. My Allen wrench set was missing a 5mm. He dug through his little tool box and had 3 allen wrenches. Two SAE and one 5mm. I owe him lotsa beers now. Stars aligned at that moment.

    @Torspd this what your kit for the 1gr will look like? Haha. After seeing harrop doing the dual vvti blower for over $10gs. I’d rather spend the money on a turbo and make some real power.

    Similar-ish. 10

    $10k is a LOT.

    What you're saying is that next week, I need to start working on a kit for you eh?

    Long awaited, but finished this up today. Borgwarner EFR 7163 with a @Torspd 321 stainless steel manifold for the 2TR-FE. Still working on the tune and ironing out some minor issues, but for the end of the first day, it’s running fantastic.

    Here’s a quick pull from later in the day when the tune started to get quite a bit better

    It looks so tight and flat fitting in there. I did the easy part. ;)

    So cool. That is awesome. So far you like it better than the supercharger?

    Sounds amazing. How much psi are you running? I’m surprised how early the turbo spools.

    The fitment is spot on. Not having to fool with moving or bending the ac lines was a blessing
    Thanks man, yeah it feels like a big upgrade over the urd kit. Lots more torque down low and once it spools it builds boost really quick. That video was me rolling into the throttle. If I get on it quick, it seems like it spools even quicker


    Thanks! It has the 5psi spring in the waste gate right now, but it’s been hitting around 10-11lbs. I was hoping for less than that, but I may just run with that for now.. yeah I was too, it feels like there’s a good bit of usable boost below 3k, but it’s at full spool by 3200rpm. Comes on quick for sure. The turbo was sized for a 1.7-3.0L i believe, so it feels perfect for the 2TR. You can also easily keep it in vacuum at 75mph, but it builds boost quick if you need some passing power

    Has anyone in here had a p0138 code pop up after going turbo? I’m assuming it’s tune related, but it’s for the secondary O2 sensor high voltage.

    It's seeing a constant rich condition post cat or you melted a wire

    Well at cruise it is a little rich right now, like low 14s, so maybe that’s causing it. I will adjust this a bit and inspect everything and go from there. Thanks for your reply

    Right here with you. Just the occasional spool sounds. I just have the luxury of $6.50/ gallon to complain about.

    93 was about $5.50 last time I filled up, trying to baby the throttle right now. I really should get out this weekend but I need to wrap-up the last room of my little reno project. THEN I shall have fun.
