    Not really a lost of space. The turbo is further away from the block with the treadstone. Just hard when custom suspension is used. A 4 into 1 might yield faster spool and more top end. That cast manifold won't crack ever.

    Ok. I’ve got most all my engine bay space in mine. I located my solenoid box for winch up high on passenger wheel well and moved my cables cruise relay back to near firewall. Stock airbox that I want to keep will be the deciding factor as whether I pull the trigger or not. But honestly even if I did order a TStone and it comes in and won’t allow stock airbox I’m pretty sure I could resell very quickly either here, FB, or even fleaBay. Likely for a slight profit to cover my troubles.

    Hey guys, I am running a MAPECU3 on my turbo 2TR-FE. A while back I adjusted the idle up from 660rpms to around 800-850. Today I am throwing a p0505 idle control system malfunction code, and I’m wondering if the two are related. I bumped it up a couple hundred rpm for the summertime since it’s hot here in Texas and I figured that might help the mechanical fan and ac performance at idle. Curious if anyone else has had something similar happen

    Have you yet tried lowering it? Being the way the MAP-ECU works as a piggy back, it may be your adjustment is the culprit.

    I’m going to give that a try, I think that could be as well. Waiting on my laptop to restart currently. It’s been “getting windows ready” for the past hour or so lol

    Made the change and it hasn’t thrown the code yet. Time will tell though, I’ll try to follow up in here in a week or so after I do some more driving

    I think I may have it licked now. I had one of the ports on the valve cover capped. I put a cheap breather on it. Redid my drain with my modified fittings and added the inline restrictor. So far so good. I’ll play with it some more tomorrow so I don’t disturb the neighbors tonight. I had it narrowed down to crankcase pressure and sure as shit the port I had plugged was moving quite a bit of air. Time shall tell.

    Does the factory ecu ramp up rpm on A/C use when using MAPECU3 or do you need to add that back in MAPECU3? I have to add that back in using Haltech.

    I raised my RPMs to 725 since I deleted the balance shafts, to smoothen out the idle. Did you see any A/C benefit?

    I didn’t see any benefits that were noticeable, but I also don’t really have to idle the truck hardly ever with the way my commute is. I will definitely give it a shot again once I get the Haltech in the truck. It couldn’t hurt to try it out with your setup and see if it helps some

    This is indeed pretty tight to the coilbucket. I cut out a little bit of my gusset I installed to give a little more room. Might have to get rid of the T4 compressor housing. The compressor inlet also barely clears the ac compressor and the rad hose is going to be in the way. Hopefully I can cut that down. I might have to make a new airbox also to make this work.

    The lower two nuts on this thing are a bitch to get on. Ended up having to grind down the shoulders on a wrench to get them tight. No way to get a socket on them and had to remove the filter housing. I hope I got them tight enough and hopefully they never need to come back off.

    Got the downpipe tac'd up just need to connect the wastegate. Going to test my fab skills getting that to fit decent.

    I was at that point too. But on tons and 40s I wanted to be able to get up hills on interstate and I wasn’t confident in the 3.4 sc.

    That is super tight! An easier exhaust outlet should be the trade-off though.

    Well that's enough to piss ya off. Wastegate flange doesn't line up after welding. Though I had enough tacs on it to keep from moving guess not. May try elongatimg the holes. 20221002_164626.jpg
