So just a small update for you guys. I've put about 1000 miles on the turbo kit now and no major problems engine wise. However my CEL has come on twice now, the codes are p0441 p0442 and p0446 which are basically small evap leaks.
I had this problem once before 3 years ago when I wasn't boosted yet and it was just my gas cap. I just took off my gas cap retightened it and reset the ecu by disconnecting the battery.
The first time the CEL came on after I was boosted, I thought the code would be for running too rich or too lean. However it was just a small evap leak like before, and I just refilled my gas tank so my first thought was the gas cap. So I did what I did before and retightened the gas cap and reset the ecu. The CEL stayed off for about 340 miles, which is when I filled up my car again. About 15 miles after I fueled up the CEL came on again, same codes and right after I filled up just like last time.
At this point I'm not sure if its just the gas cap or if it's my vacuum switching valve since they're both part of the evap system. The VSV is normally attached to the stock airbox but now that I'm boosted I just put a small breather filter on it. I'm not sure if its contributing to the problem or not.
Other than the CEL the turbo setup is great, lots of power but it's torture on my stock clutch that is now slipping at 79k miles. Driving normally the clutch is fine, however if I give it over 1/4 throttle in 3rd-5th gear the clutch just slips and you can smell it burning. Right now I can only make pulls in 1st or 2nd gear and even then it slips above 4k rpms. It looks like I'll be placing a order for THmotorsports' N/A supra flywheel and clutch package pretty soon which will include the following.
ARP Flywheel Bolts (X8)
Toyota OEM Slave cyl push rod 31473-14030
Competition Clutch Disc Sprung Full Face Organic
Heavy Duty Pressure Plate
13.56lb Steel Flywheel
I've also placed an order for a OBDLINK MX bluetooth scanner to datalog my stock fuel trims so I can fine tune my EMU and ordered a HKS type 1 turbo timer since I'm tired of waiting for my car to cool down.
I haven't washed my car in 2 weeks now because of all the rain we've been getting here in Texas, but my friend was still able to snap a pretty clean picture of my car on his dslr today
