Note that I have not attempted to fire it up yet. A little nervous like I always am. Will do today though!

Hey all, been seriously slacking on updates. Been having some issues. Got the used V-2 S trim mounted onto the car and the coil on plug setup going with the AEM box. The engine was missing quite a bit between about 2800-3000 rpm, perfect everywhere else. Suspect the AEM box. Currently in the process of wiring in some Bosch ignitors to eliminate the AEM box and confirm that it is the issue. This will put me back to an inductive ignition setup but that's fine, for now at least, as long as the miss is gone.

I actually now have the brand new V-2 Si trim on the car. Have not been able to fire it up yet due to my ignition problems but won't be long assuming the Bosch ignitors work out. I tried using 4 factory ignitors, each one grounding two coils, but the car wouldn't start.

Trying my best to take as much info down for a future write up.

Also the other day I dumped all the oil out of the engine twice. My feed line failed on the supercharger side and like a dumbass I repaired the one side then the other side went. Engine is fine thank God but it was a bad car day.

Also, YouTube vid. This is with the used supercharger and the COP with the AEM box setup. Will take a new vid if I get it running tonight.


Some random pics atttatched.

great work! I really want to see the numbers this thing produces.

and as far as the lack of posts, maybe its cause your still on the automatic transmission?

or overall people are only excited about the 2JZGTE that everyone has done 20 times over.

Nice job, Khris! I'd like to see some dyno number or your new track.
