Bleeding the ebrake proves to be difficult.   The reservoir is from a sport bike, so you have to constantly too off or risk sucking air into the system.  Also I had to relocate it slightly because the line goes above the brake master and it's almost the same height as the reservoir.

So now that's fixed, and all three reservoirs are easier to fill.   So that's a win.


Ahh the exhaust has been tucked up tighter to the under body in hopes of clearing the trailer when loading.   Also the tip was put on finally


No updates besides that.

Took her out for the first time last night.   Went down the road to the Beyond Donuts Cafe X LastPlaceCo X ForeignLTD meet.   Was a big turnout.

Here are visuals.

 I actually drive the car for the first time yesterday.    It hesitates slightly around roughly 3,000-3,500.

It needs an alignment and fresh tires.   But she scoots along well.

Little things left to do such as finish the body stuff, tidy up some wiring, triple check fluids, get some gauges installed, put some miles on it.

I plan on driving her in March at the Drag n Drift events.   So make sure you come out and see the car before it gets destroyed lol

Well if we go off a average drivetrain loss of 30%, and factor that with the 111hp rating on the last pull, we get 158Crank Horsepower.    Iirc toyota gave the silvertop a 160hp rating (crank) from factory.   

We've already determined that the engine is struggling to breathe with the "stock" airbox/rwd top piece setup.   

Looking at those numbers, I'm happy.   Also considering that my rev limiter is 100rpm lower than stock, but power peaks at 7600-7800 so it's kinda irrelevant.   

It's really loud.   And the most efficient noise reducer is a turbo,   Soooo.   Well let's just say it's no longer NOT an option

So UMS session yesterday went better than the first.   Unfortunately we forgot a fuse so we had to cut open the harness to trace out the vvt solenoid... to find we forgot a fuse....  now I'm gonna have to talk Fida into fixing it so it's still pretty.   

Looks like the water pump is leaking above 6500rpm.  Gonna have to investigate that.   As well as fix another small coolant leak.


Car made 112hp and 98ft/lbs on pump 91 on Tony's DynaPack Dyno.  Engine revs fine with the new distributor in place and sounds healthy and mean.   It's far too loud.  I need to put atleast one muffler on it.   We did drop a cylinder on the last pull after we finished the Rev limiter and decel tuning.   Pretty sure I'm going to find a fouled plug, or a fried coil pack from riding limiter so much/so long.

It spits flames about 8-10" outthe tail pipe.    I'm pretty sure I have a 1:1 ratio between decibels and horse power....    meh.

That's about 135 hp at the crank.  Not too bad..

Glad to hear it finally runs.

When's its first track day?
