I am actually looking into it right now. I just dissalowed the guest account, but I don't know if that worked. Want to try again to post at guest?

Well I got my hands on a timing light today and found out I was set at 15 degrees Shocked no wonder this thing goes like a bat out of hell. But it still has lots of power down low. When I change it to 10-12 degrees it stumbles and doesnt idle very well at all. I was wondering if the accuracy of the timing has changed since I resurfaced the head and am using a stock HG, or does this have any bearing on timing?

Im running 94 only until the IC goes in.

Sorry should have posted this earlier, ended on the 16th. This was the second time they put it up on ebay so they may put it up again. Swap is very straight forward minus the wiring. I'm using the 5m rad and havn't overheated it, but my temp guage doesn't work and its been quite cold here.

my engine is now in i should have it running tomorrow,i found a bit of a hurdle for right hand drive cars,the steering shaft is almost directly under the turbo dump pipe,pain in the bum as i already had a dump pipe left over from 4 runner swap.need to make a custom one.i measured the 5m auto radiator against the 7mgt radiator and they were both the same size.just in case it does run warm i added a large pwr oil cooler just in front of air con condensor.about to add a 600mmx300mmx65mm intercooler and it looks like theres plenty of room behind the front grill.although it will have to sit low.

!!!!damn they go hard,my intercooler still hasnt arrived so im hooked straight off the turbo to the inlet for the time being,even so, if you plant it in drive(its an auto)it fishtails up the street.dont know how strong the 5m transmission is,or the diff for that matter ,guess time will tell.

Yes, these cars are definitely sweet, I've gotten a few strange looks as I've rocketed past mustangs and z28's, but now I suffer from a little inconvenience called rod knock Rolling Eyes

what caused the rod knock?do you know if the 7mgt oxy sensor needs a certain amount of back pressure to read correctly?could this be a problem with the larger 3 inch straight through exhausts?the reason i ask is im in the process of having a 3 inch mandrel bent exhaust fitted with a custom dump pipe.hoping to tune it in by this weekend ....yeah it was great being a guest for a day,my fault though i didnt log in.sorry rob...also do you know how adjust the L.S.D diff ?while it was on the hoist getting the exhaust fitted i noticed i could somtimes spin one wheel and the other wouldnt move but every now and again it would spin..is there a way to adjust this problem.

I was over revving a bit cause the streets are slick as hell. The headgasket was blown when I took the engine apart so I'm sure that was a big factor.

I have 3" straight through mandrel bent side exit with no cat and no muffler and the OX sensor works fine.

As for the LSD, its normal for both wheels to not spin when off the ground on old supras as the clutches are pretty worn out. Only new LSDs will spin both wheels. When the wheels are on the ground theres enough force on the clutches to lock them up unless they are very worn.

just got the car back from the exhaust shop the full mandrel bent exhaust cost more than i anticipated so i wasnt able to register the car for another week,it didnt stop me taking it for a hot lap i found the 5m auto is not up to the task it was ok to start with but after about 10 minutes started to smell like it was hot and started behaving like a pig.ill try dropping the original 7mgt auto in and see if it fairs any better..
