Is there even going to be an Vegas event this year? Pretty much everything here this year is cancelled now.
Unfortunately this goal will not be met. The deadline to register to SIV was yesterday and I'm not confident enough I'll have the car running, driving and reliable enough to make the trip. Maybe next year I'll make it out. I'll keep plugging away at this build. Definitely still want to get it running and drivingUPDATE:
I set a goal to get my supra running and driving for SIV 2020. It's aggressive and I have a lot to do. I won't get to everything that I ultimately want to do with this car.
Okay must be a forum update. W-h-i-t-e-y. Why is that blocked????I just noticed the title of my build thread here was updated and the "**" is blocked out. Is the man censoring my posts now? Or was there a forum update that blocks out certain words? My last name is white hence my user name and title of the build. Anyone have insight?
I will post a full update on my car soon. Short update is its back on the road, registered and legal to drive!

Gamble, after reading this, I remembered Jake had it on his 83 "Wicked Felina" See here #116:If you ever have your rear subframe out you could go ahead and modify it adding in an access plate where the driveshaft passes through it. Not needed for 2 piece, but yeah seen this mod a few times for folks with 1 piece shafts, and just recently some great pics in this post: MtyMseHarmer's 82 P-Type 1UZFE Swapped Autocross Build
Nice dude! That's the exact spot I'm thinking of. Is your car an auto? I don't see a clutch master cylinder reservoir in that spot. That's the only issue I can see with my setup. I've got a manual clutch reservoir there so space is a bit tight. I deleted the cruise control so I've got a little more room in that area. And my Catch Can is almost too tall that it may foul with the hood. I COULD cut a hole in the engine bay and drop it down more. BUT I really don't want to cut any more holes in the car. The other option would be to put near the stock battery location. I've got tons of room there now because battery and fuse box are now in the trunk. Only issue there is having to run super long hoses to make it all the way around to the valve covers. Decisions. Decisions.
I’m running the stock 7MGTE Ecu with an Ecu master piggy back. I’d have to look and see if the piggyback has ability to control fans. It does have 5v outputs that are configurable. But at this point I have the BMW temp switch. I’ll try that first and go from there.So if you leave the wiring as is on the fan unit itself, you still have redundancy in that if one fan fails the other is still getting power. You could try wiring the fans separately with a resistor to each one, but you'd need 4 relays instead of the 2 if you're trying to wire like the Volvo. Honestly I would wire with the Volvo unit for simplicity and space, those are oem quality units that should outlast us all and you can get replacement parts at AutoZone or wherever no problem too. That's a nice bit of kit there though, nice find. The soft start feature seems great, if a bit simple. What ECU are you running again? Why not switch these in with that? Then you could set one fan for low temp, both at high temp, and if anything fails just swap connectors or relays. Or set it to hit the resistor side for low, and full power for all the beans, with standard relays and a couple outputs on the ECU.
