    Done a few MLS gaskets that have leaked with sweet fuck all evidence so its not unheard of for them to leak and not exactly look fucked.
    I'm firmly in the fix, once over the tune and sell the fucking thing category. Next the box will shit the bed, then the diff, the the blower etc.

    Fresh motor, clean dyno sheet, $10k on driftsales seeya later.
    Your adub is a way better more reliable daily car, should of never let simmo run those red lights 40km/h over in that Lexcen

    lol i was not keeping the lexcen for any longer than toyota nationals under any condition

    im hearing you on the soarer, although its not that im afraid more shit will break. it's more just that having to go through all this bs has soured my experience. i probably should have just bought a nice clean unmolested JZS171 crown wagon instead like i was also considering. then again once i got the 9A going nicely in the adub i fell back in love with that car well and truly, so who knows. once this thing is sorted i might feel different about it

    just confirmed - the injectors in it were indeed decapped. part number matches mazda 323 units



    still baffles me why he used these when he had a full set of 7m 440s already...

    Because 30+ year old injectors are just as shit, $350 for a brand new set of 8 of about the same size in a modern injector... https://www.summitracing.com/int/par...g302/overview/

    or double the size for $550 https://www.summitracing.com/int/par...illocation=int

    Finally found some motivation to get started on the engine loom. I dont have the patience to totally re do the loom, so I started by removing the charge/starter circuits since they were unfucked, and I will focus on just neatening the ecu/shift computer side of things, and putting in plugs where shit was hardwired etc

    down the rabbit hole we go...



    Lots of poor quality solder joins covered in poorly applied electrical tape







    Have cut out and re-done most of it over the last 2 weeks, whilst also grouping together wires which had had to be cut to get the loom out of the car. Once it has all been sorted out, the cut wires will be terminated in a connector to allow the loom to be joined back up in a removable way once it is reinstalled in the car. Even the trans controller had been hardwired ffs. It now has some connectors:

    Between trackdays, work trips, and Toyota Nationals I havent had a moment to work on this thing in the last 2 months. Got back into it yesterday and today and now the ECU side of the engine loom is starting to come together



    Still lots more to go, injector wiring, CDI, water meth, bunch of other random shit in the engine bay etc. And then there is the small matter of the engine. The heads are currently getting serviced at a mate's and will hopefully be ready soon

    wiring almost done now. injector connectors and neatening up a few things and then she is good to go. went over to foamy's on monday and pulled the sump off. lo and behold the sump still held a couple litres of oil. made a bit of a mess!!






    heads are halfway through getting reco'd at the moment. hopefully this sad saga should be all over in a few weeks

    The injector connectors needed to be swapped over, and it's a good thing that I was swapping them as the loom there was also fucked!

    First things first, some cheap shit connectors off ebay



    Then i start unwrapping the loom. No heatshrink here, just some poxy tape covering these solder joints, each injector had two sets of solder joints too for some reason....





    New connectors in and loom cleaned up



    Loom is more or less done now. Next up is putting a new set of brushes into the alternator and then when I have time I will fit some new heatshielding to the firewall

    What's the go with the gearbox controller? Is that to manualise the auto or something? Name rings a bell

    Well done on the loom, looking x1000 better already! I hope for your sake everything works properly 1st time around after re installing

    It replaces the stock ecu which normally controls the gearbox. It controls line pressure, shift points, torque converter lockup etc. You can also wire up some inputs and have manual shifting yes

    I also hope everything works first time cos I dont want to have to learn how to wire up all this shit! At the moment I am just re-joining like with like so that I can hopefully avoid that learning curve

    Got any more info? This is relevant to my interests - I have a 1UZ + auto but nothing to control the auto.

    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.
