Send me your igniter you gay...here are some teaser pictures. It's all 304 SS, I figured you Florida people get all sorts of humidity so I didn't want it to rust or oxidize. You will not get a teaser of the wiring.

One teaser, the last picture just looked incomplete.

Damn that looks good. I wonder how much harder it would be to make it fit a vvt

If I had a vvt valve cover I could make it work no problem. Plus, I have plenty of material. I bought a 20' stick of it.

*edit* I just looked at pictures of a vvt valve cover, and it wouldn't be hard at all to do. I would just need one to get my measurements correct.

There is nothing wrong with Toyota cops. Prove there is something wrong with them without using the "ls coils" are better.

Have tested with BKR5, BKR6 , BKR7 and BKR7 Iridium plugs. 15psi seems to be the limit after it starts to misfire. AFR doesn’t change much. 11.5 or 12.5 it’s the same

(my COPs are part.no. 90919-02239)

LS2 truck coils FTW?

Garage queen?! Wtf. Edit: Oh you're talking about the Faefae ***** machine. I was about to say, I have 240k+ on this car, haha.

Sav uses COPS on E85 @ 350+whp with no issues. I should be just fine.

Alright. The igniter is on it's way to Ryan for some COP action. I will be sending him my intake manifold and my comp. housing because he found me some sweet deals on powder coating in his area. But first I need to get a new pair of snap ring pliers because mine broke trying to get that gorilla ring off the Holset for a second time.

AND I decided to go ahead and swap out throttle bodies on the intake manifold before I send it off to get pretty. Now I need to decide between a Honda, LS, or whatever throttle body that can give me a near stock idle, etc...I'm sure the MS3 will be handy here.

My 6spd showed up from our dear Lord Savingballs the 3rd. The dumb ************* that handle packages down here went out of their way to screw this one up, just like my brake package fiasco from earlier this year. The crate was marked THIS SIDE UP and I come home to find the crate sitting on it's tail end with THIS SIDE UP facing the wall Everything seems to be fine as Sav strapped this thing down tight, but it did leak some of the fancy race oil from the tail end. I will be taking the 5spd out shortly and sending it off to Ryan as trade for the fancy COP setup and for hooking me up with the powder coating shop.

Small leak from sitting the wrong way up.


Nice and pretty.


I also decided to update my clutch/flywheel setup while I have the trans out. I'm leaning hard towards the FM happy meal stg.2 It seems to come with everything I would want/need. I'll be happy to hear some suggestions from the crowd if you guys have any other ideas.

Let me know what colors for the manifold and compressor housing. That way when they get here I can get them glass beaded and down to the powder coater. Ummm I think that is it for now, I just got all my wire in the other day, so it is getting there.

I was bored and reading through build threads and this needs updates! Not sure if maybe another thread was created or what not...

Nope, same thread. Just been busy with work (season started) and waiting for ARtech to have some free time.

Update: Parts are being sent to ARtech soon for some handy dandy fab work. He will be making me a downpipe, wastegate dump pipe (recirc'd) and converting my 2-bolt wastegate flange to v-band. I think I've suffered enough pain and torture with having to deal with my old setup's wastegate placement.

I'll be driving the car on 6-7lb's when the parts get back here and on the car. I'm going to dial it in nicely to see how this combination of parts works together and from there I will throw in some 1000's and crank the pressure until I kill this motor. The current motor in my car was installed in 1996 and has 140K+ boosted miles. It's still running fine after years and years of abuse. I'm not sure how long it will last at over 300tq. Either way, I'm set on building a new shorty from a 92-93 car so I can eventually run a balancer like all the cool kids.

The last thing I needed came in today. Now I have to ship it away, haha.

Here is something clean and "baller" to look at so you guys can stop making fun of my turbo....





I have to give HUGE props to Extreme PSI. After two weeks of hunting down deals and telling the big companies to go **** themselves for wanting 40 dollars to ship one of these, I got this MVS "kit" with every spring for 260 bucks from Extreme PSI.
