    You must like the sound of an angle grinder and various other loud noise. I ask my neighbours from time to time if my noise bothers them. But they say they hardly ever hear me, I try to keep it under control. I had one neighbor in my old neighbourhood who didn't fully appreciate my noise she asked me to stop a couple times. No problem I'm easy to get along with. So I got to be friends with her son and help him modify his car and make it louder. How can she complain if her boy is doing the same thing? How is your mom doing Ryan? Does she miss me yet?

    I finished up the waste gate plumbing today. I just have to check all the welds and add some bracing to the manifold now. And maybe some polishing.

    I've been eliminating things I no longer need now that I've eliminated the twins. It is much simpler now. I welded up a a gusset and bracket on the manifold and built a brace that bolts the manifold to the block. I modified the factory oil drain back again so I can use an AN fitting when I add an oil catch can/separator. I just capped it for now. Some wrenches needed some modification to make it easier to bolt up the manifold and turbo.



    The brace still needs to be painted.

    I finally got my bearings from MVP motorsports after they send the wrong ones and wouldn't send me the correct ones until they received the incorrect ones back. That seams like a poor way to run a business when you want return customers.

    On my lunch break I pressed the new bearings on and started assembling the diff and I replaced the ring gear bolts.

    It's been a while since my last post but I have been working on the car everyday. Most of it doesn't make for fun pictures. I put the whole drivetrain back together, Royal purple in the LSD, Redline in the gearbox, engine and power steering, Toyota coolant. Everything was assembled but the car wouldn't fire. Forgot to plug in the crank angle sensor. Quick fix. Bam! the car fired up and ran beautifully. I almost thought it was a 24 volt 3B it fired up so quickly. The car sounds much meaner now. I took the car for an easy drive around the block and it drove well. It was hard not to dip into the boost, but my car was not properly insured and the hood was off, I didn't want to attract to much attention. But I could still tell it was more of a beast than it was the last time I drove it with the stock turbos and auto gearbox.
    Since then I've been cleaning things up, I removed a whole pile of things I don't need any more now that I've gone to single turbo. I've been doing some wiring, I added an auxiliary fuse panel to eliminate the inline fuses and I've converted my single filament signal lights to function as DRL's as well as signals.
    With the help of my Skyline driving Bestie, we put the hood on last night. As much as I like the the shiny single, I think it will be less of a heat score with the hood on. I've got a few more things to do, build an oil catch can/separator, properly electric fan mounts, some assembly of bits I had to take off under the car and I'm still waiting for the AEM failsafe wideband/boost gauge I ordered. I also have to decide what tires to put on the car.

    Here are some pics.
    Filter for idle air control valve. It has been oiled since the pic.


    Mmm, delicious. Only the best for the Supra.


    Getting some sun. It's been a while.

    Dale - Get your bro with the wobbly dorito powered car to bring you over one day and we can chat about it. I'll keep and eye out for the parts you want. They are a bit hard to come by, maybe make some friends on this site, or come out to the drift day at Western Speedway on Saturday. Do your research on this site as well. If you need some bits welded up I'll weld 'em up cheap if you prep them and bring them to me.
