So I have been doing a little plugging away. Pulled the codes and have three of them; 22 which is water temp sensor signal to ecu, 31 which is AFM signal, and 51 which is switch signal.

22 I just pulled my green coolant temp plug and it crumpled in my hand and one of the pins was already bushed back so it wasnt making contact -_- easy fix at least.

31 I havent checked my afm quite yet for resistance to see if it is within spec because the plug isnt the best either so I thought I would just change it since im buying new plugs anyways so got a new afm plug for a couple dollars.

51 Is the switch signal. It refers to a few things which are ac switch circuit, ac switch, and tps signal. I dont have ac so It is most likely that but I want to make sure my tps is in awesome working condition and within spec.

I hit up driftmotion and bought a new afm plug, ecu coolant temp plug, a new male cps plug for the harness side, and a 200amp circuit breaker for my battery. She should be communicating pretty well after all this. More pictures to come once I get in my parts!

So daily driver broke down so now im driving the supra as a daily. Just got it running decently two days ago but has a random missfire every once in a while. I think its because of my cps so tomorrow I'm getting a new cps, coolant plug, coil pack, and a iacv from a buddy and see if shes golden after that! I have 26 miles on it since I rebuilt the motor but its all going well. have done a couple little spirited pulls with tons of engine decel to set the rings, once it is warmed up fully of course. Runs 1000x better than before! Pictures tomorrow because I have been too busy to upload stuff lately. Keep on wrenching everyone!!!!!

From a local friend I got a new IACV, coolant temp plug, and cps. Really helped with a handful of my running issues and does very well now! I have about 235 miles on the rebuild and she runs pretty darn strong. Really makes me realize how badly my old motor ran. Couple photos now!


So the drift motion upgraded oil pump does pretty well :) oil pressure gets way up there and once I toss on my oil cooler kit it should do awesome all the time. Once it gets fully warmed up it drops a little but thats going to happen.


Here you can kinda see the puddle of oil that was at the bottom of my old cas. The wires were also brittle and the wire wrap was pulled off in the plug and was corroded. Didnt even want to mess with it so just got a new one.


Little car wash and she is back on the road and looking awfully purdy :)


Couple of the local guys just haning out grabbing lunch.

Now on my to do list is:
1. Cut off the rest of my bump stops on my oem control arms
2. Hook up reverse lights
3. Change oil
4. Remeasure cam shims to fix tick
5. Setup e-fans on thermo switch.
6. Make lower radiator mounts
7. Make ss lines for oil cooler
8. Enjoy the shit out of this bitch!

Damn I wish I could invest that in my 85 7MGTE, real sweet bro.

Jeremy
Thanks man, it has been a crazy project and tons of learning has happened with this girl. My next big project this winter is r154 swap that is built and WPC treated, rebuilding my diff, and I'm putting an aem infinity H8 in it as well. :) should be tons of fun for this little 7m!

Build and photo time!

Pulled the motor prepping for the r154 swap. Debating on painting the bay again. Such a pain though -_-

have this girl chilling until someone buys it. came off a 1jz from japan and has a billy m shift kit. she has done me well :)

but yeah full plans for this winter are:

r154 swap with a full DM kit and all the gears and syncro's WPC treated
Rebuild diff with full weir kit and solid pinion spacer
make jumper harness for 7m-AEM infinity H8 and tune her
57 trim ct26 (only because mine leaks and pointless not to upgrade her a little when its so cheap!)
remount rack closer to front of car to reduce tierod angle and provide more steering angle

Should be interesting! stay tuned for updates!

Winter projects have changed of course! Did a few upgrades to the R154, bought a clutch masters fx400, finishing my one piece driveshaft this week, finished rebuilding and wpc treating my diff, made a COP setup, re shimmed my cams, upgraded 57 trim ct 26, and also a FFIM! Photos to come later tonight of course.

Thanks dudes! Pretty much just doing side projects to get some spare cash then back to the grind! Having a one piece driveshaft made this next week and hopefully she will be back on the road! I still haven't bought new door handles and haven't had them for I think 6 years lol. I can't justify 200$ in new toyota handles when she isn't driving. Updates very soon though and thanks for reading peeps!

Most recent task is finishing the FFIM setup. I decided it was a great idea to try and TIG my IC piping to reduce couplers. I'm awesome at welding steel, not aluminum apparently....

So until my aluminum TIG skills increase I might be stagnant for a little while. Practice makes perfect though!

Well finished my car and she runs like a top!! Everything from the winter/spring build went awesome!

STORY TIME.

Bought a handful of new tires for this big drift event that was on 4th of July weekend. Realized I forgot to put in my "front bearing retainer seal" (the toyota name) on my transmission so I had to pull it out the night before I left for a 3 hour drive to Spokane. Pulled it out, put the seal in, slapped her all back in, topped off the redline mt90 and went to bed. I had to work at 7am so after I was off work at 3pm I started the trek. I drove as far as Wallace Idaho before I heard a terrifying noise! A squeal from hell! I was cruising in 5th and off throttle it sounded fine, on throttle it was terrible. So I caught up to my friends and made them pull over. When I went to slow down and hit 4th everything was gone, hit third and gone. Anger of course sets in! Hit 5th and it drives fine..... humm.... pull off and stop and 1st, 2nd, 5th, and reverse work. So loaded it onto my buddy trailer and dropped it off at a buddies house. Weekend was done. So I partied hard!! lol

I had a dream about pulling my transmission apart and found a bolt to my 3/4 shift fork in the bottom stuck to the magnet. Got off work the other day and tore her apart and found some neat stuff!!

Inspected all the teeth and they look fine! Took it to the machine shop I utilize and had it all chemically washed to try and get all the metal shavings out of her and try to make her a little happier. Tonight I'm tossing the seal back in and filling her up for boost time! Bolt is $2 and seal is $12 from toyota. Could have been a lot worse!

Just toyota shit ya know?

Well installed her and wouldn't shift and lost interest for a week or so. Finally got motivation, yeah!

Yesterday I pull out my diff, one piece drive shaft, transmission, ect. Once I pulled all that out I noticed my rear crank seal was leaking, pulled it and realized I somehow used a longer bolt and it cracked my rear crank seal housing. Slapped a new one in and resealed it and should be good now! I also pulled apart my trans and found out the reverse shift fork was popping into gear for some reason. There is a little spring on the rear half of the trans that is suppose to push the shift fork down and it kept binding and wouldn't shift because of this spring. I pulled it, rtv, assembled and put it in. All seems to be good now and drove it to work today. Was a huge project for one day but shes bueno and boosting! Fun times again!!!!

Well it runs great! haha

But more problems arose of course! Had a massive leak that I fixed last night in the oil pan. I also blew my diff :( brand new bearings and WPC treated ring and pinion down the drain. Having it rebuilt again now and try one more time haha. Motivation to upgrade more though!


Little TIG action on the sub frame to get those camber mod brackets in! Not the best but she will hold!



making sure everything fits after welding her up!



I dont have a press so I made it work lol



Super excited for poly urethane bushings though!!
That is all for now until I get my sub frame back from powder coating and diff back from the local shop!

Received some more fun stuff in the mail!!

Was super excited to get these in the mail and be able to adjust so much more stuff!

The angle kit from T3 is still pretty nifty!

But this oem control arm and tension rod had to go!

I also got my subframe back!
Installed that yesterday and according to my IPhone app its +2 camber in the rear now, so excited to get rid of all that camber. More photos to come later of the kit installed and what not :)
