Even more work has been done to the exhaust.
I've added a flex pipe and some hangers so the exhaust does no longer need any support.

I also did a little porting.

I had to grind of the surface on both the outside and inside to be able to get a good weld.

Today I made a connection for the blow of valve in the lathe and welded that to
one of the pressure pipes. Hopefully it's in the right position :)

A lot of parts were installed today. The most important one was the timingbelt.
I bought a tool which locks the camgears so it only takes one try to get it right.
The pictures and comments will explaine the rest :)

I installed V-band on my stock cat. earlier so today I could installed it on my supra.
I also finished my intake pipe so I put some paint on it.
A package arrived with my new swoosh gauges for water temp, oil temp, oil pressure and boost.

Big day today! :D
I finished the last things and my supra was now ready for a test start :)

In the first video I'm just getting the oilpressure up. After that I went
to reconnect the coils and injectors, but for some reason I forgot to do that :S
Instead I checked so that everything looked ok and it did.
But my friend started recording video 2 and I cranked the engine for a while before
I remebered that I had some reconnecting to do :)
Then we have video 3, then engine starts and I'm very happy...as I bet you can see.

No leaks :) (that on the floor is old)

If you thought that yesterday was a big day, these two days are even bigger!!! ;)
I started on the 20/5 pretty early with a friend.
There were only a few things that we needed to fix.
The goal was to drive my supra to "The odd vehicle day" at my summer work.
It's an event for all the employees where we can show each other what we are doing
while we're not at work.

Of course we ran in some big problems.
During the final test start before putting the front on we noticed that my new
oil system wasn't as leak free as I thought :(
I had a leak at the Permacool thermostat which we tried to fix with tape sealer.
But that only made it worse, turned out it was a crack in the thermostat.

The time was now somewhere between 12 and 2 in the morning so there were no
stores open to find a solution in.

First try: Weld the AN to NPT fittings to the thermostat and weld the crack.
Well, that ended with us sinking a whole phase in the garage *oups*

Second try: Bypass the thermostat.
I welded together two sizes of pipes where one end goes in the SS hose and the other
end goes into a smaller rubber hose.
Four adapters and two hoses and we were back on track.

I pushed through the night while my friend took some naps.
At around 9 AM we drove out of my garage, went home to me to make sure that my supra
was as street legal as possible (no MOT though) and to get some clean clothes.
Then we drove the 60km to the event at my work with the targa off.
I was soooooo happy. The beautiful weather was even more beautiful now that I was driving
MY supra :p

My supra is ready for the roads!

I have started to look at how I can mount my new gauges in my spare cluster.
To see if I could take something of the gauges, I opened one of them up, but there's
nothing to take of.

Today when I went outside to greet the beautiful weather I saw something not so good
on my supra. The fuel was pouring out of the filler cap.
The way my supra was parked made it possible for the sun to shine directly at the
fuel tank and heat up the contents.
My only ventilation was a universal fuel cap with a hole in it.
Unfortunately, the filler neck does not connect to the highest point in the fuel tank.
I filled up the fuel tank yesterday so the little air that was at the highest point
got heated and expanded which pushed the fuel up through the filler neck.
Once the first drops of fuel passed the filler cap, the self draining started.
The paintwork was only temporary, but I was hoping that it would be me who
removed the paint.

I drove the car to my garage and got it up on jackstands.
I will take this opportunity to fix some other stuff as well.

The damage




Back in the garage and up on jackstands

I'm not one to waste any time, so I started right away.
The todo list is pretty long, but the main things to correct are:
Oil system
Exhaust manifold studs
Install IAT and EGT sensor


Pictures:

Removed the front to get to parts of my oil system


Removed the exhaust manifold


The studs took some souvenirs from the cyl. head


It shouldn't look like that...


It looks better in the turbo


My TODO list


An overview of the engine bay


Seams as I have a bad valve seal


Marked out where to install my IAT sensor

Time to get a leak free connection between the head and exh. manifold.
I used the stud kit from driftmotion.
As soon as I started the drill I started sweating, I was really nervous.
But I got it to work :)
I left the stud closest to the firewall since it seamed good and was
not loose at all.

The tool

I removed some more parts from my engine.
I will clean the injectors in a ultrasonic cleaner and I will bypass the
waterlines going through the throttle and IAC.

I made some progress with the oil system today and installed my new thermostat
and re-did the oil lines between the thermostat and oil cooler.
When I mounted my oil filter I noticed that it was leaning a bit...the threaded
part in it was crooked :S Thankfully I had I bought an extra filter which was fine.

My oil system is now completed.
I modified the tow hook with a piece of metal so it's now a mount for my filter mount.
There are sensors for pressure and temp installed in the thermostat.

I have also installed my turbo setup together with my newly wrapped downpipe.

Perhaps some of you noticed that all my pictures went away for awhile?
The picture host I'm using went bankrupt and shut down. But there's a new owner and the host is back and so are the pictures.

Although I'm still considering using premium membership from photobucket. Is there anyone here using that?
I want premium because of the ftp upload, but do I still have to log in to the page and click on each picture to get the link needed to post the pics in forums?

I also got a package today :)
It was from elmhurst toyota containing all the freeze plugs and the bearings for the oilpump driveshaft.

Today I made a ventilation pipe for my fuel tank.
I took the block off plate I did before and added a piece of stainless steel pipe with
the TIG.

Since I'm writing this now in January I don't remember the exact date when this happened.

I broke my engine :(
My supra has been running great during the whole summer. I have driven it everyday.

But after I installed my MS3 I had a little problem, I had misfires over 100 kPa and I was
able to raise that threshold to about 150 kPa.

After a lot of head scratching I figured it out, it was the stock coils.
Well, one of them which had a small crack.
When I replaced that coil, I wanted to be curtain that the timing still was synced.
So I locked the ign. timing at 10 degrees and checked it with the strobe.
The timing was correct, but the laptop battery was near dead so I just closed the lid.
So I forgot to remove the 10 degree lock.

The engine didn't feel quite right but I thought that I still had some coil problems.
After a little time on the freeway the coolant shot out over the hood and windshield.

I had just received my first BHG! :-/

My garage spot is currently occupied by my other car which I'm finishing up to be able to sell

it. So my supra will have to wait.

Today I separated the engine from the gearbox and installed it on my engine stand.
Then I started disassemble the engine.

Warning! There is a shitload of pictures!

You can also see the damage I caused and a strange thing, the rear timing belt cover is
higher than the engine block :S
