Re: Synthetic oil for GA15 engine

If you don't race or drive hard then it is waste of money.
Get a decent quality conventional oil and keep up with your oil change intervals. Put the money elsewhere

Were you messing with the plug gap on the LFR7AIX?

Re: Subaru conversion question

Everything would bolt in but you would need -
Motor and all peripherals.
Engine and dash harness.
ECU and if applicable BIU and skim key .

So simplify the swap, find a wrecked WRX or STI and swap engine and dash.

Re: The Tuning Thread- EJ Motor

I'm running the Dom 2.5xtr (10cm) on my 2.5L. The response was great and I had full boost by 3500rpm.
I've talked to Blouch and a 3.0 upgrade maybe on the way.

My friend is running the 3076 on his hybrid and he was having full spool by 3800ish. His setup wasn't ideal though.

Stock wastegate is about 7psi if I remember right. No way the ECU could intentionally run anything less than that.

Re: The Tuning Thread- EJ Motor

Did you back off the throttle right after max torque?
That's alot of torque early on! Either your torque is calculated incorrectly (sloped road?) or you're pushing a lot timing to spool that turbo (stock?) so early.
What's the setup?

Re: The Tuning Thread- EJ Motor

10.5 with the cooling benefits of meth injection might be a bit too conservative in many regards, providing you aren't running a shitload of timing. With my current tune, my Wrx seemed to like 11-11.1 relatively well. Regarding the Cobb platform. I don't think they support JDM ECU definitions. Yea,...

As for the GD Swap, you can do a conversion to use a GD ECU on a GC8, it has been done, i've seen the entire process stage by stage. It is also better to do so, as it is as if you are more or less upgrading certain items in your car. A full GD engine and dash harness along with the ECU would be the...

Nah, that's the factory vacuum port to the a/c idle-up that I had to repair. I had no say in the design. You're saying I should probably just use a 2.75" silicone hose instead though? Ohhh gotcha. I thought you were tapping in a vacuum port for something else. Do the Corollas have an external ...
