    Recommended replacement heater core?

    Toyota uses standard o rings. They are either Viton N-butyl rubber Or some other formulation. Metric size are most common but might get lucky with imperial.

    Holy crap!!! Finally got the car started and idling! Bad news (sort of) is that idle is at 550 rpm sustained instead. Not to bad for 1120 cc/min injectors. So the new starter cranks at 200+ rpm compared to the old one at sub 100 rpm. So that issue was from day 1. Bad news is that now it...

    Ok So I just got my denso remanufactured starter. It is a 1.4kw starter. Old starter that I pulled from supra is on top. 1.4kw on bottom. My guess is that the old starter was anywhere from 1.6kw to a max of 2.2kw. Now I have a theory which I think will work but will have to wait on it.

    From one gremlin to the next. I dislike refurb... The starter decided it does not like trying to start e85. I had a feeling it was on its way out the door due to crank rpm (100rpm was a lucky day). Has anyone used starters from powermaster, tilton etc or any other starter with the Hitachi...

    4th of July post update! Well folks. I decided to take the wiring plunge and take out the old 7m OEM coils. In their place... 6 x R35 GTR ignition coils. The "harmess" was hacked together as I do not have my goto wire... AS22759/91. I was able to source the pig tails from, O'Reilly's...

    more than you ever wanted to know about wire

    I am going to add some more on this just because why not continue it being on topic. So now it seems that TE COnenctivty bought out Deutsch connectors as they are producing them (yes they give free samples of stuff)! Anyway, My findings, as with anything I always look for cross reference...

    Average amount of oil recovered after an oil change on a stockish 7M-GTE?

    check the oil lines going to the oil cooler. Those hoses have been know to leak if they are not attached properly.

    another update, well I finally upgraded the electrical. The battery is currently in the hatch(not in a battery box yet) and it was how I purchased the car. there was 1, 4 gauge wire going from the battery to the main fuse block up front, the alternator and the starter. During starting, I was...

    so I have been having inconsistent starts with some massive backfire. Long story short, there is only 1 4 gauge wire going to the front of the car that feeds both the starter and the main fuse box up front (along with the alternator). I tested a theory and long story short, I am ordering 0...

    another week, another update sorry about coming in so slow with these. I work on the car if there is no other pressing items making place. Well, the ignition coils are good and it turns out the wiring is a dud. with that said I have removed all bits of aftermarket electrical add-ons in the...

    "Zulu" mod

    ...and thinking about this some more. This might be a left over from the 5M head? I would be curious to see if the 5M had that part opened or closed up.

    Cranks but no start after head gasket replacement

    thought I circle around back on this. if your fuel injectors are drenched, and the injectors seem to be injecting correctly via the o-scope reading. That leaves; the cold start injector staying open all the time. Injectors are stuck open across the board the wiring to the fuel injectors is...

    "Zulu" mod

    Simple Unless you have done FEA on the flow of that head in both OEM functions and with the mod in place, you are risking in adding an issue where there is zero reason to add one. In other words, it is your car, do as you please but if you do not have facts, all you are doing is taking a risk...

    "Zulu" mod

    that is because stupidity and ignorance is like a tidal wave, it is hidden underneath in the ocean until it comes close to land then it rears it's ugly head. There was a reason I had one of my signature as "standing against the wave of stupidity (and ineptitude)"

    Well I got the car to start and hold steady on 4 cylinders. But every once in a while I was getting a back fire. Well turn out the coil 3 (cylinders 3&4) where completely dead. So I tested as follows. I took the CPS off the head and put it on a drill while i had the laptop connected to aem...

    Good news and bad news... Bad news first. The connectors are in fact the econoseal J Mark II but they are keyed differently so they will not work on the water sensor. Good news is that the pins are an exact match and so are the silicone plugs.
