Default exhaust is done

well a 3" exhaust shouldn't really fit with an auto we had a hard time keeping it above the frame rails as i wanted them to be the lowest point on the car

Probably the least impressive part of your build, but the USB socket in the removable dash trim piece is a bit genius. Will be copying.

Default Testing

Needs a thermo fan on the auto cooler its 10 deg F warmer than id like but my auto builder laughed and said its perfect if thats the temp im getting without one it sits between 200-210 i want it solid on 200 engine is also 5 deg up on normal driving with the manual so ill probably change some stuff around bring it down a tiny bit other than that it drives amazing spins tyres into 3rd on low boost which used to be around 240kws its a heap of fun

*there cheap 205's so thats not impresive but we will see how sticky tyres go with more boost

Went for a drive sat night and decided it was time to put my big boy pants on and try high boost its not slow you can only use half throttle in second and third breaks down im guessing cause my plug gaps at .9 are too big so i changed plugs and gapped them down to .7 im hoping it will fix the issue

Half throttle in second is faster than wot on low its a heap of fun

Next job is new front rotors and brakes and clean up wiring for auto fan

.7?
I'm guessing .7mm which is roughly 0.028". I've got my plugs at .025" on stock ignition and it's fine at around 15-17psi. Any more is bad news(for me on pump gas), so i'm not sure what "high boost" is for you unless it's the 28psi referenced in the first post.

I must have missed it, what is the ECU?

I'm impressed you're not getting spark blowout at that gap on stock ignition.
I was never able to go past 18 on stock '00 setup, and about 22 on Toyota cops
