    SC400 / Soarer Suspension... how well can these cars handle?

    Hi all, Now i have the 1UZ from the halfcut home and on an engine stand, what kind of prep work should i be doing to it before its installed in the car? To be approved for rego, it needs to look 100% factory (so all emissions gear and intake piping & filter). This is the list ive come up with...

Has anyone had...

    1UZ vs VVTI 1UZ (wiring?)

    Hi all, Im finally at the point where i need to seriously consider engine options from my RA28. Really, there are only two options, the 1UZ and the later VVTI 1UZ. Im going fully road engineered and RTA approved with this car, so the 1UZ (which ever flavor i choose) will need to run on the...

    Strange single turbo setup....

    Hi all, Look carefully at this photo: Notice the turbo is only supplied by exst from one bank of the V8. Anyone seen a setup like this before? Seems it would simplify a single turbo setup a lot.

    Hydraulic Supercharging

    Hi all, After all this discussion on the hydraulic fans, it has got me thinking about what else the hydrauilc pump/motor could be used for. Now this may be a crazy idea... but could you use it to power a supercharger? My guess is probably not, due to the pump/motor not being big enough to...

    Be careful....

    Its a very bad idea to have negative comments on businesses in a internet forum like this! I know of a couple of internet forums that have had to close due to users posting bad comments about businesses. The business then sued the owners of the forum for defamation (i think thats the correct...
