Here you go ....I told you there are alot of boosted 1uz motors out there.

Australia dominates when it comes to modding these motors.

Cars running real nice now. Still a few things here and there to get done.

Nice find Danny. The intake mani in the last video is awesome. Got the car running pretty decent. I believe i will be switching to E85 this weekend.
We shall see!

I dont mind, but if i were to buy something new, i would prefer an EMS or Haltech. Maybe even an AEM.

Will do! I dont have a filter at the moment. I think im going to run an HKS/Greddy style.

I just changed the clutch today from a 6 puck unsprung to a sprung 6 puck for nice daily driving. I will have it back on the road tomorrow!

ive been told running filters that require oil are bad for turbo set ups. i decided on an AEM dry flow for my 1uzfe-T. but by no means am i trying to say "it wont work" because it will, and people use filters that use oil with turbo cars on a regular basis. just sharing a fact with my sc400 turbo bretheren, haha.

Did the Marlin Crawler shifter bushings. Love these things. Got the shifter perfectly centered cause they did a terrible job extending it. Today i am putting on my BLK IS300 steering wheel and a few new interior parts i just bought. Also going to do a boost leak test to get ready to go to the dyno soon!
Finally finished drivability tuning last night. The Greddy Ultimate is ok, but im so used to running standalones i think ima change it.
