Waiting for someone to ask where the water cooling hose is :rolleyes:

Nice car, I'm jealous. Holy God those are some nice numbers. Any chance you're going to any meets soon? We Floridians would love to see that car in action!

I may attend a meet if there is one nearby... I have been really busy lately with my business, hopefully I will get some time to play soon.
I now have some traction issues and am in desperate need of brakes, so I am ordering some new rotors, pads, having my back fenders rolled and hopefully I can fit some 255/35/18's in the rear on my manarays...

20psi seems high, I am not to sure if it is high for an IS300 though. So whats the reliablity with it running 20psi daily driven?
20psi with a lowered compression isn't high. Did u use to drive a Honda/Acura before?

I'm running water/alcohol injection... I can safely run the extra psi with no detonation... Normally a built is (GTE) with lower compression can safely run 17-18psi... With water/alcohol injection you can get 20-22psi. I can run 21 psi, no problem. Water injection is like a "band aid" for the poor octane ratings in pump gas. Not nearly as good as c-16 though. I gained 28+rwhp using this setup

you can run 18-22 psi on a Supra TT safely. I was running 18.5 psi when I had my MKIV, daily.

Aaron our car has two camshaft=two cam gears. Our car utilizes a VVT-i ( I standing for Intake). In turn we are only able to change cam gear for the exhaust since it does not have a solenoid for variable valve timing. Only the intake side varies, hence there is a solenoid.

The BOV is loud as hell... I love it. I am thinking about getting the polished horn that turbonetics makes for it, but I don't think it will fit.
Generally, you only use one cam gear for a car with stock cams or only a exhaust cam. The other gear is for vvti

I am now running a standalone, no vvti and HKS272 cams on intake and exhaust, so two cam wheels are used.

that's excellent power from an auto man w/ that turbo. congrats and enjoy.

now your next upgrade will be a turbo that can flow some more air and you'll be good to go. gt35 is nice, but just runs out of gas fast.
