    It's pretty oldschool, uses hyperterminal etc lol: http://www.latentsolutions.com/suprastickuv.html

    A friend of mine recently set up a shift computer using a microsquirt, apparently they are much more flexible, modern interface etc: https://www.diyautotune.com/

        yeah so this took a back seat for a while. death in the family, racing the adub etc etc. getting back into it again now

        new brushes for the alternator and terminal lugs for the starter



        valve stem seals out and heads washed





        next step is cleaning the valves and machining the heads i think, taking pointers from a mate here as ive never done a head reco myself before

                  so that is a maybe... a lot of ARP stud installs I have seen are shit, no way you will get a reliable torque figure if the nut is not fully engaged on the stud by at least 1.5 threads or no or thin washer.

                      The only issues I've heard of are where the hardened steel washer gets pressed into the aluminum head and you lose tension that way

                        So a few updates - got the heads over to Ducky's and I set about cleaning the valves whilst he gave the heads a once over. He also measured the lift on the cams and after comparing to the kelford catalogue, confirmed they were 207-SC "supercharger" cams







                        Once that was sorted, went back to the shop and turned my 1UZ into a Gallo 12



                        Foamy kindly supplied his torque wrench for the head studs (probably more accurate than my Aldi wrench lol)



                        The head studs under the scissor gears were already cut down, but one of them had a small lip on it which means the gears would hit. They must have sat in a slightly different orientation earlier. Ground a little more off it and then it was good. There was still full engagement on the studs TRD-MX62



                        Genuine toyota gasket goo for the cam covers, sump and other seals



                        Started assembling the engine, discovered that with the kelford cams being 9.5mm lift meant that the engine was now interference - better not screw up that belt! Time for engine assembly montage



                        Timing belt was a right cunt to do

                          Chen's tiny azn hands came in handy when i dropped a box cutter under the fkn inlet manifold - what a shit design



                          Engine loom montage - fuck this loom, WHY DO THERE HAVE TO BE SO MANY WIRES??





                          Crank angle sensor wiring is no good, will need to fix this



                          Cam sensor wiring was also no good - I probably should have checked the entire loom but I only cleaned up what was on the ECU-side when I had it on the bench thinking all the factory stuff would be ok. I was wrong



                          Supercharger belt is massive, foamy was using it as a skipping rope when he got bored



                          Megan racing engine and gearbox mounts go in



                          Ripped out all the old, shredded, munted firewall heat shielding and added some DEI reflective stuff (still had heaps left over from when I did the AW11 during the 9A swap

                            And then the engine slowly, painfully, ridiculously difficultly, went in. It took FOR EVER! I have ripped out maybe 6 or 7 1UZs from soarers before, but I had never re-installed one!!! It was a cuuuuuuuuunttt





                            Eventually got it in and got the mounts, exhaust and tailshaft buttoned up. Had to call it there, we had probably put in about 60 man-hours between us over the course of the weekend, and all of us are going overseas for various trips this week. I will be back in 4 weeks, at which point it will be a case of bolting the torque converter, fluid connections, and wiring. Oh and installing the supercharger, radiator and thermos and whatever else I have forgotten.

                            Next update in mid-september!

                              LOL never work on a 1GZ then. Fully redundant dual ECUs means two of everything, trillions of wires!

                              Solid effort overall, looking forward to hearing it start up.
