Default Went to the track today for the first time...I'm happy!

First time taking my GS to the track. My current mods are first and foremost our FSMoto intake manifold, FSMoto fuel rail, 90mm billet throttle body, V160 swap, GS400 3.23 rear with TRD LSD, PTE 650cc injectors, walbro 255hp and Aeromotive FRP, XS manifold, PTE 6776 w/ .68a/r, Tial MVR 44mm wg, Turbosmart Raceport BOV, AEM EMS, stock clutch (boo!!), and the kicker is stock cat/midpipe and stock exhaust. STOCK 10:1 COMPRESSION! Stock studs, stock headgasket.......Stock internal everything with 170,100 miles.

Best of the day was a 12.5@116. This was on my 18's and cutting a 2.0 60' with 30psi in the hard *** Riken Raptor tires. Running a measly 12.5psi of boost Did manage to run 118mph but spun off the line.

After I do the exhaust and run a better tire it'll be in the mid-high 11's with no doubts at all. I'm running off the wg spring with is 1 bar, but losing the 2psi due to the backpressure from the stock exhaust/cat. Also the last pass I glazed the clutch in 2nd gear which didn't surprise me. Needless to say I'm very happy overall!

No numbers yet. I still have to fab the exhaust before I do any kind of real tuning. Looks like I'm gonna have to get a clutch before it go's on the rollers too. I'm expecting 500+whp at 15-16 psi.

Ah the joys of making your NA look like a TT! Building one myself shortly! LOVE the IM manifold! Polished TT valve covers look great too! Nice engine!

Where did you relocate your PS reservoir too?

Yes people, this is the original GE motor that came in the car. All 170,000 miles of it! That is our intake manifold (FSMoto) and fuel rail with PTE 650cc squirters. This motor is completely bone fkn stock with the exception of what is shown in the images. Stock 10:1 compression, ie. stock headgasket, stock head bolts, stock.......ev er e ting! No one wants to listen and lower the compression....that **** is old school when there was no such thing as engine management. As long as you can control timing then you can run 10, 11, 12, 13, 14:1 compression. It's being done people, don't be another sheep in the herd.

Here's the PS reservoir. This is the original one modded btw. It's necessary to use the TT nipple on top of the pump and I cut/clocked/rewelded it for hose placement. All I had to do it pop off the top of the washer bottle neck, swing it over towards the fender and make a new cap for it using a honda B series exhaust cam plug seal with orings and a bolt through it for something to yank it with.

I still have to make a catch can if you haven't noticed. It'll look similiar to this one that I made for a customer who has a 1G GS. This is a combination catch can and radiator overflow tank. It's chambered internally obviously.

BTW, forget to mention that the Supra radiator locates the upper hose more towards the passenger side so it help with room of the charge pipe. With the stock one the hose was really leaning on it badly. To get a Supra radiator to work in our cars all that is needed is to have 2 new dowels welded on the bottem end tank where ours would be, the supra's are spaced out further. Then of course a new upper hose, I can't specify which to use cause I pulled this one out of a box of misc hoses and had to trim it to fit properly.

Any other questions just ask. I have A LOT of experience building the NA/T's.
