Got the FSMmoto FFIM kit on and the car is running. Still fine tuning / tweaking the install as it involved a ton of little things to get working. For anyone that has not worked on the intake manifold side of these cars, it was a HUGE pain in the ****. Do yourself a favor and set aside a few days to attempt this install as it was not as easy as I thought.
Tips for install.
- There are 2 coolant lines that attach to the stock throttle body. I clipped these and stuck bolts into them and clamped down on them to block these off.
- De-sheath wiring harness and re-wrap to extend wires. The TPS and Idle IACV are in different places
- Extended TPS harness a foot
- RMR throttle body cable wheel goes on left side, TPS on the right and TPS harness faces the battery
- For the throttle cable bracket I had to unbolt the rear allen bolt and swing the bracket facing down to clear the intake runner.
- TT Reservoir does fit on the side but I could not bolt it down, it's just chilling in there.
- Had to purchase a Optima red top battery as my stock battery was way to big to fit the piping past it.
- Wrap everything in masking tape as you will install and un-install several times and it is a TIGHT fit, you will nick and scratch everything in the process.
-Prepare to having someone with you that has smaller arms, as getting to the 6th and 7th bolt inside the plenum when mounting it to the runner was impossible for me to reach to.
- The FSMmoto kit uses a standard TT oem throttle cable, but you must use the sc300 throttle pedal stopper on it.
- UNPLUG and leave unplugged the 3 sensors just below intake runners as I was trying to uninstall the intake and it broke 2 clips. The clips are very hard and brittle I guess from age.
- The TT reservoir's top nipple requires a 3/8th automatic transmission fluid tube or "oil" approved line and the bottom line is alot larger. I had the guys at advanced auto search for the TT supra application to find a tube that is cut to fit for the bottom line. Ended up being 12 bucks and I only used 8 inches out of the 3 feet they provide.
- I used the top 2 studs on the runners that were originally there to mount the wiring harness for the 2 grounding points to the runner. It fit perfectly.
I'm sure there is more but that was everything I can remember off the top of my head.
: Ignore my anti-scratch blue tape attempt
There was a NOTICEABLE drop in torq, I immediately noticed that while driving it. I would not recommend this mod for the NA guys as it will destroy your bottom end torque. The sound of the intake and overall exhaust note is much more growly supra sounding now and the IACV valve whistles extremely loud from putting a small cone filter on the barbed fitting.
Up next is the vvti COP setup and deleting the distributor with the 7mgte cps.
