Build part 1
Hey guys! It's been awhile. Now that I have a laptop, I can stop being a "Smart" phone poster.
I'm doing a street oriented progressive build. So for now I can asses what parts I currently have to utilize, and what needs to be done to the car in general.
I started the car shortly after receiving it. With every upper O-ring, and seal leaking like crazy, the wires were flooded with oil in the spark plug valley. It didn't run that well, so I assesed a tuneup needed to be done.
Instead of that I decided to go with the world famous, Ali SC3 2jzgte ECU modification, since $70 on a tuneup is dumb, when I have a row of coilpacks and a gte computer!
Ali SC3 ECU Modification
-AEM FIC 6
-2zz Coil Packs
-Stock 330cc Hi impedance Injectors
-USDM 2jzgte Upper Forward Facing Intake Manifold
-USDM 2jzgte Throttle and TPS
2jzgte ECU Conversion Configured for Natural Aspiration
The 2jzgte Intake manifold fit pretty well with small modification on the ge lower, and certainly good enough for N/A
Since I have the AEM FIC, the stock injectors can be scaled for N/A use making their removal unnecessary.
I deleted TRAC, depinned a few of the smaller wires that will pin into the ECU plug for the coils.
Also I used the thick solid color stepper motor wires to trigger the coils, thus only requiring simple soldering, and repinning, all while leaving the OEM harness uncut, but already run and weather sealed from the factory as well. Double bonus!
The Stock power steering res is not baffled, and is easily shortened to fit under the GTE FFIM, without buying the Toyota piece or another res. Bonus City!
With the Stepper wires located under the harness covers, I intercepted them and built a coil pack harness. The 2zz Coils were had 8 for $50 with the pigtails at a local pick a pull yard.
I have no IACV so I took the one out of the GE Throttle and plugged the hole in the intake. It won't work, but it plugs the gaping hole, and allows me to set the idle static which I have done before in Maine winters, and it doesn't bother me.
Next is the MAP sensor wiring which I use the old MAF housing so you can plug both the MAP and IAT in one neat factory plug.
