    Just installed 315cc injectors, stock ECU, now not running right

    Underpowered, rough as at idle, and wont accelerate, may also have a knock.. All brand new injectors, all plug and play. I just remembered that I did not disconnect the battery when I did the installation, but I dont think that would necessarily make it idle funny, perhaps I should...

    Best ECU for me? (turbo 1uz, factory auto)

    Was thinking of going stand alone, but I have a few issues, running standard ECU atm, and factory auto box, also want to delete AFM and run turbo at 10psi. I have the factory digital dash, but may look to delete that and go hand controller entirely, if it can show me all the different sensors...

    Running Ethanol in your 1UZ? Turbo 1UZ on Ethanol?

    Anyone running Ethanol in their 1UZ? Anyone running a turbo 1UZ on Ethanol? It seems to have a higher Octane rating, and also has cooling properties in the engine, with the only apparent downside being a little bit higher pressure in the cylinder? From this article...

    1UZ, A340 Auto tech, bigger sump, extended breather etc.

    So I had to pull my gearbox as the front (TC) seal was leaking. I thought while it was out I would make some inroads into modding it. I have it in a 4x4, so up the beach it would be working much harder, temperatures would be much higher, and internals would be under more stress. I already have...

    Worst crud build-up in 1UZ ever?

    Is it as bad as you have seen? I am absolutely shocked. I knew when I had a rocker cover off last year that it was not looking good. (I have put about 400kms on it since) But three oil changes and a caustic treatment. Then I was doing the rear main last weekend, and thought, after my multiple...

    Rear Main Seal

    Well, im going to be doing the front torque convertor seal. So while I was in there I was wondering if I should do the rear main? My engine has quite high k's. Is it a known problem on these motors? Or best to leave it alone? Would you change it?

    Front torque convertor/pump seal.... Or something more sinister?? Any ideas? Just dripping out of the bellhousing pretty badly, was a tiny weep, then after a bit of a caning, it got a lot worse.

    Using a 1JZ box behind 1UZ?

    Is it possible? The casting looks the same, the !J has a better output yoke and a lower first gear? Have heard that MV Autos in SA use a 1JZ first gear in 1UZ box to get quicker launch, Does the Surf auto box have a lower first gear again does anybody know?

    390cc injectors (Eclipse/Lancer/Pajero?)

    The bible mentions some Eclipse non-turbo injectors as being around 390cc and being perfect for the HP that I am shooting for: What I want to know is is an Eclipse just a Lancer, so grab some 1.8L non-turbo Lancer injectors and I am good to go? Or...

    1UZ Coffee Table (Zuffen)

    So I saw all you Rover guys doing it and thought I'm going to build a Jap one. It's a fair bit harder than the Rover ones, what with the 90deg 'V' but it didn't take much to solve. Just gotta decide on polishing or just silver powder coating....

    High idle 1500RPM, only when in park.

    I have changed my intake from the standard 1UZ and run it out and around behind the intake manifold. This meant I needed a much longer 3-4 times longer pipe for the IACV. After having a few issues since then, I was told the pipe feeding the IACV needs to be a fixed length?? Could this be...

    Gearbox squealing, won't get gears

    Hi All, I just started and ran my engine and it seems to run fine, the guy I got it off said it hadn't run in a couple of years possibly. Now for the problem: There is a horrible squealing from the torque converter or front of the gearbox area. I double checked the bolts that hold the...
