    Those numbers are a 100% unopened high mileage stock 1994 ls400 engine. Only thing I did was clean it up and paint the valve covers. Stock cam's, headgaskets, bolts etc

    A few reasons, primarily for the better airflow into the radiator but also aesthetic cause the Intercooler was just way to huge and ugly sticking out front. Now I can run a stock grill setup and it looks way cleaner now

    That 690whp was at 16psi of boost, I haven't really checked IAT's as a comparison but on four dyno pulls within 15minutes, the last run started at approx 15degreesF over ambient and only climbed about 6degreesF, that's with no fan on the car from the dyno. The actual Intercooler cores are the...

    Single Turbo 1UZ MKII Supra Project

    actually for myself I would love it if there was a single overdrive 6spd that could handle the torque like a t56 magnum does. My car loves when I run a 3.42 rear end in it cause its light and it helps the turbo spool harder but a 0.63 6th gear overdrive means i'm turning <1900rpm@65mph and that...

    Transmission is all fixed up, the counter shaft that Tremec said there was nothing wrong with decided to start cracking and one of the teeth broke and bent an input shaft tooth. So $1000usd in parts later (zero warranty from Tremec) I rebuilt the trans myself. Not even 200km since it came back...

Trans was Defective since day1 and last week the countershaft 4th gear finally broke...

    Nah don't worry guys nothing I did or didn't do broke this transmission, I've known there's been something wrong with this transmission but Tremec refused to do anything about it other than blame it on an installation problem. Legitimately it sounded like rocks in a blender after about 50-100km...
