Apparently the car had a 1.6mm gasket. That’s not right I ordered it from Real Street unless they packed the wrong size mm!!

So two things gave the car a low comp, 1.6mm hg and a none shaved GE head. They bored out 30thou, now it’s sitting at 9:1:1.
GTE pistons and rods.

I’m going to have a go at it with the AF but I’m definitely keeping my BW. I want to run the car with the BW via “another” tuner just to see which turbo makes more power low end and top end and how early the response will be .

I gotta get the Ai Surge tank with 2x 460 walbros, i already have a 460 in the tank so I’ll have 3x 460s after the surge tank is installed.

I’m going for a retune with the BW. I want to see how much it can make and how early the boost can come on. It’s 0.91AR twin stroll divided T4 8376 S300SX airworks.

If I get full boost by 3500rpm I’m keeping the turbo if not I’ll swap it with the BB Aeroflow 6262 with a 0.83AR. It’s also a divided T4.

Good luck, if you manage to do it, post it here first! I’m think more around 4200-4300. But I’m rooting for you! Either way it will be making some steam.

I want to do my build with the auburn sky pearl color. Seeing it was my first is300 color and I don't see many of those builds around on the internet. That being SAID i'm really tempted to change my mind everytime I see one of these in white especially with the right body kit on it. White looks gorgeous on this car and I never thought I'd say that about a white car.

What oil pump do you have? I imagine there's a difference in the 3sge oil pressure vs 2jz oil pressure, unless it doesn't change at all.

Real quick because we're talking about dashes, has anyone taken theirs apart to see if you can remove the red from the redline on the tach? I know you can take that panel off and replace it with a jdm or custom one I just don't know if I want to spend hundreds for that right now. I'm willing to take my own apart if there's any interest but I don't want to thread jack.

Just looked on eBay and there's a few cheap jdm ones that go to 7900, I'm going to buy one and make a thread swapping it out. Im on standalone so I can make the tach accurate.
