Installed the new Denso mk4 turbo pump and was surprised at how clean the 31 year old gas tank was. I gotta give a thanks to @3p141592654 for showing off the pump and providing info on the filter sock. I was amazed that it was a perfect OE fit, well worth the extra cost over the Walbro (not even taking into account it flows more too). Saving the relay wiring for tomorrow.
In and running, AFRs were down to the 9s so I'm slowly backing off the pressure til I hit 11.5 at WOT. My old pump and wiring were definitely having a hard time keeping up with the Lexus AFM, the new one at 14V has no issues. I'll have to get a finished pic later.
was working on my other 88 putting the interior back together after sitting for 10 years. Found a cancer spot that I'll need to address, luckily it isnt too bad. The car only has 74k on the odo so im surprised this is the only rust spot.
All I need to do now is either repair the cracked dash or find another maroon dash, locate some maroon window switch covers, and the interior will be back in one piece. Then I can focus on the 1JZ swap.
Finally finished putting the flywheel and clutch back together after fixing the pilot bearing that I crushed. Engine and transmission are bolted back in place and the whole thing rotates smoothly... no noise from the pilot bearing
It has been a while. So glad to see that part done. jobs to do next are 1) valve lash adjustment and 2) sensor mounting on crank and cam (to read trigger wheels for Speeduino/stand-alone) and 3) refit the intake, turbo, etc., and other sensors, 4) plumb turbo for water cooling... to be continued, I'm sure.
