    FMU advice needed

    I actually still have the whole car and setup. But after I swapped to a new SC shell and got 95% done, I got busy and didn't have time to finish it.

    FMU advice needed

    The AEM from the Supra works perfectly. The only thing that I am not 100% satisfied is that after I insert the key in the ignition, I have to wait for about 10 seconds for the AEM to initialize, then I can start it.

    FMU advice needed

    Ha ha! I just got bored, so my memory brought me back here. I'm still with the V8 1UZ and 2UZ community.

    FMU advice needed

    I had run FMU 12:1 with turbo on my SC400 with boost at 6 psi for a long time without issue. My friend is running supercharger at 6 psi on his LS400 without issue. I'm an old time member here, got busy, so I didn't log on here for a long time. :)

    What performance parts are you looking for?

    1UZ Legacy. Supercharger will not boost over 3.5psi Help.

    Does the manifold plate restrict the flow evenly? It looks like it blocks/separates the front and rear ports.

    Thickness of alloy sump

    The oil pressure might be too much for the turbo. I blew a turbo without the oil feed restrictor. Putting it inline and fixed the issue.

    V8 Supra MK3 1UZ Twin Turbo from Germany - Part II

    I like the dome manifold. It's kind of unique.

    supercharged sc400 running rich

    The fuel injectors from Mazda RX7 turbo year around 88-89 are 460 cc/min and also with high ohm. They're the cheapest working solution. But make sure they're cleaned/rebuilt.

    DO NOT take cheap cross drilled rotors to the track!!

    I don't track my car, so I can't say for sure if the pad material has anything to do to heat up and crack up the rotors or not. However, I use drilled/slotted R1 rotors (cheap) with ceramic pads and they're fine for streets. Maybe if semi-metallic pads are used, they gets hotter than ceramic...

    TT 1UZ-FE update

    They're still great runs nevertheless. 20 psi is a lot of air for the 1uz. lol.

    Time to get serious (supercharged SC400)

    It's a good setup there, KC. I know you're pushing it hard. :)

    Conservative 1/4 Mile Times....

    I don't think Jibby has the SC or looking up on here anymore. Your car is fast, but it sounds like you lost traction with that much boost. The only way to eliminate wheel hop is to completely change all rear bushings to polyurethane. That will include rear subframe, all rear arms, LSD, sway bar...

    questions about my sc400-T build

    I extended the MAF wires and have no issues. I keep the soldering joints as small as the original wires along with tube shrinks over them. That solid turbo mount to the chassis will cause vibration to the entire car. It's better to have some insulated or flex mounts.

    questions about my sc400-T build

    Take a picture of your FMU setup. Maybe I can see something.
