    Thanks dude, means a lot to me coming from you.


    Sweet ride huh?

    I also got a merge collector lookin thing I made up laying around that I need to cut and weld the turbo flange onto. Then comes the making of the turbo manifold.

    Onto another matter. The corolla has a shortened tarago F-series in it. The re-splining job was good and fit perfect into stock diff with no play. The same axle put into an IS200 cusco LSD is loose. There's about 7 or 8 degrees of play. Is this normal for cusco?

    Collector's cut, CAD is down at water cutter. Manifold starts when I get flanges.

    Accidentally dropped a ziptie in the timing chain area of the SR. I bid it farewell, put the motor back together and drove it. Guess I should take the oil pan off some time and see what happened to it.

    Update, sort of.

    Made this:

    SR20 Valve height measuring tool. Saved a supposed 800 bucks in not buying the Nissan SST.

    Made half a collector... with an angle grinder. I need a band saw. and a belt sander.


    Ordered an ECU too. Should be here next week and running within a month or something.

    I put a layer of matte on the shroud to strengthen it as it was floppy like a flexible side skirt. Test fit it and clipped a corner out of and re-glassed it. Mate has it now and should be bogged and smooth by now.


    Swapped front housing on a Nissan 5 speed.

    Bad idea? Maybe, maybe not.

    Got the ECU to read a bunch of pulses coming from the CAS after trouble shooting for a good day. In the end there was nothing wrong, wasn't my fault, just the software telling me to do crazy shit. Running tomorrow??? Then weld the bung into the downpipe and finish off the collector while I got the welder out.

    and now it runs.

    I should probably elaborate. That silver thing with the DC37 connector is a Megasquirt V3 ECU. It's a build it yourself mainboard with plug in chips(MS1) or daughter boards(MS2 or MS3). I've got an MS3 which supports USB communications, SD card datalogging and with the other board connected to it with ribbon cables is the expansion board for 8 injector drive and 8 spark outputs(need ignitors or coils with built in ignitors) and a second crank/cam input.
    Supports boost control, nitrous, water injection, air con, stepper motor or PWM idle valve, table switching, flex fuel, launch control, datalog off a button on dash, progressive retard limiter with hard fuel or ign cut. Spare channels become extra outputs for whatever. Has CANbus to talk to trans controller, display devices or external in/out boards. Datalog everything you want.

    All for under 500USD. I made a patch loom so everything is full plug in.

    Also, that beer in the above pic ain't mine.

    Oil cooler crap:

    I got one of these too but not for silvia. I'll probably make something that interfaces with the megasquirt rather than fitting a stand-alone system.
