Years ago I had a few B21F intakes but they are all long since gone. I have all of the piping throttle cable, IAC hoses, tom make the B230 manifold work + I had a clean (I mean clean) manifold ready to use.

Not sure who was selling it but my car was parked at the corner of wonderland & llderton Rd and they guy was right across from my car. I literally parked my car and walked over to the guy and I couldn't believe he had this thing for sale. Furthermore I was stunned when he told me the price.

I have made some progress on the B230 intake manifold swap.

I removed my old B21FT manifold




Removed the paint for the cold side IC piping. I will need to plug the 13mm port and add an 8 mm nipple for the waste gate pressure tube.



The intake maifold I used did not have a cut out of the cold starting valve so I added one as shown below.



Plugged Injector ports.



I am hoping to have this thing buttoned up in the next couple of weeks, but before I do I am seriously considering switching my WUR to a UTCIS-PT.

Thanks I have seen much nicer cars, but I drive this thing every day in the summer and my bricks are not my only hobby so my cash gets spread around to other things, but all in all I love my 240's.

These cars deserve to be driven!

Having recently acquired a kjet turbo car again, i read about UTCIS-PT.
Anybody use it?

Well its been a long awaited time coming but I finally cleared some time to add a knock sensor to the side of the block. I went with a knock sensor kit from knocksense. So I proceeded to drill and tap an 8mm thread on the side of the block, and why not add some ability to adjust my fuel map so I also added a UTCIS









THE UTCIS was an expensive upgrade but after a 650 Km round trip I am extremely pleased with it.

First I was able to increase the line pressure of my fuel system to provide adequate fuel supply for high RPM & boost levels but I was able to fine tune my control pressure at idle and a wide range of engine speeds and MAP conditions.

With the recently added knock sensor I was comfortable running 16 - 17 PSI of boost and the car performs very well. The best part was I was able to smooth out the annoying 4 PSI MAP duty cycle enrichment. I don't have actual numbers yet but today's drive yielded a considerable improvement in fuel economy, and I was on the gas pretty hard at times.

Below is a picture of my fuel map that works best for my car



Steve over at UTCIS was more then helpful in getting me started with my tune and helping me diagnose a cold starting issue. If you want to keep Kjet, increase tune ability and need to replace you WUR. I would seriously consider it.
