Got the oil feed and return lines made. I kinda ****ed up the finish on the fittings when I made them, but eh. They'll hardly be visible once installed, so won't bother me. I'll eventually need to make lines for my catch can as well.

Hopefully on Friday, I'll be able to get around to putting these on the car and getting the downpipe and one of the AC lines wrapped along with pulling my old harness off. Work schedule has been kind of unpredictable so far with when my shift ends, so we'll see how things go.

Small progress is some progress.

Aside from the clutch chatter I get, I really like the Fidanza flywheel that I have in the Supra.

I finally started a new, stable job last week, so my year of being funemployed has come to an end. That now means moar moniez for car parts, but less time to work on my car. Hopefully by Black Friday, I'll have enough saved up for my standalone and the rest of my fuel system.


Congrats bro! I know how you feel about that. I'm still in contract but most people here at my work-place has been contract-to-hire so I'm not too worried. Indeed I have seen myself buying more and more parts now that I have good OT money to spend on the car lol. And I didn't even think about Black Friday!


Thanks, guys! Yeah, I'm trying not to be impulsive with my purchases just yet since I'm wanting to clear out some other debts first. Hopefully I can handle these overnight projects work is tossing at me so it'll add to my OT.

Quick update before the site goes down again:

Got another 5SFE and ST185 3SGTE harness in and sent them off to Doug at WireGap a couple of weeks ago. Waiting on his e-mail to let me know when he's going to start the merge so I can tell him to shut up and take my money.

Found out that the wheels I wanted are being discontinued in the colour I want, so I went ahead and placed an order for those before it's too late. Hopefully they'll be here in January.

I finally started a new, stable job last week, so my year of being funemployed has come to an end. That now means moar moniez for car parts, but less time to work on my car. Hopefully by Black Friday, I'll have enough saved up for my standalone and the rest of my fuel system.

List of last remaining major-ish parts (I think):

-Link G4 Plug-and-play ECU
-BTI CAN gauge. (Need to double check with Brandon to see if he's still offering them for the Link standalones since they're listed on his site, but can't be purchased.)
-4 Bar map sensor
-FID1000cc injectors (unless they've updated and replaced these with bigger ones). Should be good for about 480hp on corn juice according to my tuner.
-Walbro 450 E85 fuel pump
-RacerX fuel rail
-ATS Racing cold start injector block-off plate

The car is so close to getting done that I can taste it, but at the same time, it feels so far away. Hopefully I can get it running by the 2-year-anniversary-of-ownership mark.

I just realized the lower speaker grill is a different design between the 6-speaker and the 8-speaker.

So, while waiting for the harnesses I ordered to show up, I got bored and decided to go ahead and swap out the regular ole door panels for the 8-speaker premium panels. I also slapped in the 4" mid-speakers in just as a place holder in the mean time and to clear up some shelf space in my garage at home.







It was nice of the eBay seller to include new upper moldings for the door panels as the driver's one is rekt. Driver's arm rest is going to need some repairs as it looks like it's caved in a bit. Should be an easy fix though.

Plan is to eventually run Focal 3-way component speakers up front with 6.5" woofers out back powered by a NVX 4-channel mini amp and I'll be keeping the powered 8" sub that came with the car for some low-end boom-boom.

I also yanked out the old Alpine head unit from the car as well. It's a CDA-9851 with the MPOW bluetooth add-on. It's up for grabs if anyone wants it for their '90s sh1t boxes or looking to replace a broken radio on the cheap.

Also drained and pulled the water/meth injection system from the car. That's up for grabs as well if anyone is interested.

In the mean time, everything else is going to be a bit slow until my buddy whose shop I am using is done moving and relocating his shop since I am helping him with that whenever I have some free time from work.

Next update should hopefully be something decent and productive.

only thing with paint is having the right, big-ass compressor to provide the necessary air for the gun, then having the right tips for the guns to get the proper atomization for the paint, and the necessary inline filters & pressure regulators. After that, it's just proper prep work and mixing the right ratios for everything.

The Porter Cable https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002654I46 is pretty decent, a little lacking in some areas but for the price it's WAY better than what I see you're using.


This is a great DA for beginners (on a budget). It's actually a great DA to have in your arsenal in general. Pair it up with Microfiber pads and it's a combo that's hard to beat.

I'm electrically illiterate. The best I can do is wire **** up via instructions and car audio stuff, so I'll gladly accept the title of "Electrically Useless".


So, after much deliberation, I will be sourcing another '98 5S harness and an ST185 3S harness to send out to Doug at WireGap to have a new harness made. I honestly don't want to play this guessing game anymore to figure out what wires are going where and for what reason cuz it's honestly stressing me out and I honestly think it's kinda dumb seeing the things I've found. It'll also help clean up a lot of the unnecessary connectors that are currently floating around in the engine bay (which is a fck ton).

This will allow me to run a newer, updated standalone like a plug-and-play Link G4+ or a plug-and-play ECUMasters EMU Black which will give me the option of having more than 1 available tuner in town since everyone except one guy has dropped MegaSquirt from their list. I also like the fact that the Link G4+ is a board that can fit into the factory ECU case, so it makes mounting the ECU a breeze and hassle-free. This should also allow me to no longer require this external knock sensor box that came with the car, but I'll double check with my tuner before I decide to ditch it.

I also think I'll be ditching the water injection as well and prep the car for E85/flex fuel next year instead. I already have a standalone, fuel filter, sensor, and lines, so I'll just need to pick up a rail and injectors down the road. There's a crap ton of E85 stations in town, so I'm not worried about limited availability. If I'm not mistaken, water injection does somewhat of the same thing as E85 to help keep IATs and cylinders cool. Either way, one less thing to have in the car: both the system and having a gallon of go-go juice on hand at all times.

Trying to do what I can to de-clutter this car as much as possible.

Yay! More down time!

interesting build thread (just read it from start to finish) that is some amount of work you have put into it,engine looks cool as feck.what turbo you running on there (looks like a hybrid) any plans on running an external wastegate for a more even boost.i have a Greddy oled controller and their really great to use.
good luck with it


Thanks! It's been a lot more work than I was initially expecting. It's been fun and kind of stressful at the same time. It's probably one of the fastest rebuilds I've seen in a while at something like 8 months now since I pulled the motor.

As for the turbo, it's kind of a hybrid. It's a CT20B with upgraded billet internals from TurboBay out in Florida here in the states. I don't know all the specs of it, but it's supposed to be pretty beefy. I'm hoping the factory wastegate actuator will hold. I'd like to run an external wastegate, but if I'm going to be going through all that trouble, I might as well do an aftermarket manifold with maybe a Borg Warner EFR or SXE turbo granted the EFR probably won't need an external wastegate to function properly.

QUOTE (bloodMoney @ Aug 6, 2019 - 7:15 AM) *
Looks like you have a few hours of work left!

Can't wait to hear it run!


It's gonna be a few more days of work. lol I need to rip out the interior to see what wiring shenanigans is going on with the fuel pump, audio, and water injection so I can clean it all up to my liking & preference.

QUOTE (Box @ Aug 6, 2019 - 8:57 PM) *
That scooter though.


I've been meaning to take it out around the airfield, but I've been too busy working on the car. I'll try to give myself a break next time to take it out and hopefully not get hit by a plane. lol Maybe I'll strap the GoPro to it while I take it out. lol

And update for today.



Car is up on the lift in order to slide the motor underneath. I didn't take a whole lot of pics during the whole process since I was given a deadline, so I'll just describe e'rythang I did. One of the front bolts for the crossmember had rusted and broken off in the chassis, so I had to drill that sumbitch out and tap it for a new one. After that, slid the motor under the car and removed the crossmember that I had gleefully bolted on to the motor in my haste of excitement. Pulled off the two front wheels and down the car went.



Engine is home and bolted down by the passenger and driver's side (transmission) mount.



Hoisted the bird back up to tackle everything else underneath. Got the axles in with new seals along with the crossmember. One of the studs for the rear motor mount stripped out, so it just sat there spinning, but I guess 2 out of 3 isn't so bad. While I was under there, I attached the power steering pressure line to the pump and then fed the wiring harness through the firewall. Om nom nom.

During the whole process, the right (driver's side) engine hook got bent in, so I'm gonna have to pull that off and straighten it back out. It's pretty obvious in this pic:



This is where I ended the night. Spent a little more time to sort through and organize the extra wiring on the driver's side, pushed the throttle cable back through the fire wall, and also replaced the shifter bushings with the red ones I got from BRD. While I was doing that, I realized that some poly bushings were already there. Oh well. If anyone wants some used black ones, just pay for shipping. lol I also need to figure out what to do about the oil dipstick. By the looks of it, the downpipe is in the way of the dipstick's function.

I'm hoping whatever air filter combination I come up with helps hide a lot of the snakes of wires.

Next plan is to figure out how to get the lower rubber bumps for the radiator to fit the Mishimoto posts. Seems the opening for the rubber bumps is too small to fit the Mishimotor radiator. I'll probably grab a drill bit and bore it out. Once that's in, I can figure out how long of a -10AN line I need for the oil return and the -4AN for the oil feed on the turbo. From there, I can move to the back of the car and sort through the wiring for the fuel pump, audio, and water injection. Maybe I'll get to that later this week.

I honestly kinda didn't think I'd get this far, but uh....yeah...



The olde 4Runner wasn't available to be used as a hoist, so we used the lift itself.



(Spec I think) flywheel bolted on with ARP flywheel bolts torqued down to 95Ft-Lb per ARP's specs.



Southbend Stage 2 Endurance hybrid clutch glued onto the flywheel.




S54, starter, and crossmember duct taped to the motor. I also slipped on another firewall grommet to the harness since there is a hole cut out in the firewall by where the stock ECU sits and that's where the harness is running through instead of the factory spot. Peep the little moped. Don't mind the broken Supras in the back though.



And to end the night, we pushed the car into the shop to get ready to bubble gum the motor into the car tomorrow morning. Hopefully all goes well.

So I didn't get to drop in the motor last week like I had hoped, but I still was able to make some progress anyways.

Last week, I moved the AC compressor to the block from AC lines and also mounted the power steering pump the block as well. Got the belts ran and tightened as well.



The motor mount bushings from BRD came in last week as well, so I went ahead and used this weekend to install them into the motor mounts at home. I left the instructions at the shop, so I yolo-ed this 5hit. I made a boo-boo with the front motor mount, but it wasn't anything that couldn't be fixed.



Took a reciprocating saw to the bushings to make quick work of it all then torched the remaining rubber bushings on the mounts to dry them up in order to scrape them off.




Luckily, I had a vice on hand, so it made pressing the bushings in a lot easier.




And uh..... That's about it for now.... More later this week I hope.

Thanks, guys.

I forgot to mention that this is my drive to go work on my car and this is on a GOOD day. So this, plus this Texas heat makes me not want to do anything else, but i'm making progress.



Not much other update today.



Got the AC dryer replaced along with the o-rings at the firewall, so now the engine bay is practically ready.



Driver's side interior is sorted out now and looks a lot less cluttered. I need to find some kind of a carpet dye or something so I can dye the floor mats black. I'll sort out that random wire later. I also have most of that ECU/body harness sorted out and now just have to mock everything up to see how much of the wiring I need to shorten for a cleaner finish.



I guess during the down time waiting for the motor mount bushings to come in, I'll sort out whatever is happening in the back half of the car, so I'll hopefully get to that next week if it doesn't rain.

Let's see.......

I started cleaning up the wiring mess that was left behind the pillar pod and driver's foot well area.




I also plucked out the old Viper alarm that was in the car along with the Blitz turbo timer as well. I got rid of those pedal covers cuz my shoe laces kept getting caught on the screws that help them stay in place.



This was basically everything I pulled from the driver's area.

Passenger side was pretty neat.




Yikes.



Took that little bit of the body harness home to organize a bit. Was told a lot of that can be removed, so I will be doing that this weekend. Hopefully I don't phuc anything up.

I placed an order for new poly engine mounts from Lou over at BRD in the UK. They got sent out today, so hopefully they'll be here mid-week next week so I can drop the motor in by week's end.

In the mean time, it was time to take care of AC stuff.



Replacing the condenser because, you know...




yeah.....I've no idea how something like that can happen.



Replaced the compressor as well. Old one looked like poo and I'd rather be ready for this south Texas heat. By now, I had ran out of day light and I was getting pretty hungry, so called it a day for now. Heading back tomorrow to finish replacing the AC dryer and the o-rings for the ends going to the fire wall. I might have a leak somewhere because when I had the system discharged before starting this, there was barely any freon left in the system. Should be buttoning up the driver's side area as well since I was needing a butt connector that I forgot to bring with me.

I'm getting pretty close to getting this thing together. For a while, I was losing motivation to keep working on the car and feeling indifferent about it. I was at this same point with the Supra as well years ago when the motor wasn't in the car. Even as I'm getting closer to the finish line, I still feel indifferent about it and whether or not I want to keep the car after all is said and done. Maybe cuz it's been me working on the car solo 95% of the time and it feels kinda meh. I guess time will tell though.

If you're reusing your flywheel then for the love of God make sure you have a .018 - .022 step height surfaced onto it. Much unhappiness and expense will follow if you dont. Ask me how i know...

Edit:

Also, the torque spec for the pressure plate bolts is NOT 14ftlbs as listed in the fsm. Researching showed that 22 ftlbs is appropriate! I had a pressure plate start coming loose because of this. Even the mr2 guys at primedriven recommend 22:

https://primedriven.com/collections/clutche...ure-plate-bolts


How do you measure the step height?
