247 to the wheels is about 285-290bhp. To get your engine to make that, you will need at least a 2.5" exhaust (starting from the down pipe), better cams, better turbo and tuning.

Nice. If you have a 4th gen (caldina I presume) then you should be at 265bhp. That CT26 turbo can take up to 20psi no problems. Get an electronic boost controller that is capable of boost 'tuning' and yuh paddna will be eating dust forever. The OEM MAP sensor for that engine supposed to hold up to 18psi before fuel cut. If you install a water/alcohol injection kit, you could use super withat least 1 bar boost no problem.

ok cool.....yeah it is from the caldina with a mr2 lsd box
the boost controller i using right now is a go fast bits.... working good so far, just need to adjust the gain so that the turbo can spool faster, doh have road by me to set it properly, oh gosh i need a dyno...lol

what about remapping the ecu? can the 3sgte ecu be remapped or is it safer to go with the piggyback?

well right now my car park up...waiting for my clutch kit to arrive tonight......
i ordered an exedy stage 2 clutch kit.....is this good for daily driving and occasional drag race?

btw what can i do to improve traction.....ah looking to buy a set of coilovers after...
any other suggestions?

No version of the 3sgte ever came with an OBD2 type ecu, so yes at minimum, piggyback. Look into megasquirt ems though...they have a pnp option for the 3sgte now...not sure how the pinning will work with your ecu harness though.

The Exedy Stage 2 is the sprung 3-puck one right? If so, its a beautiful kit. Control your launches and it will last a long time.

Be careful in thinking that adding coilovers will help traction. Many who have put them on will actually tell you the opposite. Your suspension probably needs tuning....something that only a select few in T&T know how to do. And I don't mean Drop Shop, Suspex etc eh! :lol:

What vehicle is your setup in?

What size exhaust are you running? Pull your spark plugs and post a pic. Is your engine burning oil? Any check engine codes being generated?

Well, when it comes to the 3SGTE, I never stop learning.

Corner balancing is just that. Suspension tuning involves some serious angles and trigonometry calculations to get it right. The problem with most used coil overs is that you have to make do with whatever spring rate that you get. If you buy them new, with some manufacturers you can choose the spring rates per axle, which helps a lot with a front heavy application like yours Monster 101.

nope, no spare x-member. the downpipe will bolt to any CTseries turbo...you will have to see how the midpipe meets it on the other end and adjust to suit.

Been a while since I've been on this forum since I'm no longer in Trinidad but I thought I should share my 3S corolla project with the Trinituner 3S family. The project been up a while now? I sourced a lot of parts while building this from Trinidad (Bamboo & Trinituner users). Here is a couple pics.

It's a custom made intake...... I think I actually got the shifter linkage for my gear box from you while I was in Trinidad. That probably was about two years ago.
