Yeah, well, once it's buttoned up and ready for the weekend, I'll post pic's and details. The hard part is done, just got the finishing touches. Got the last of it figured out and happy tonight. Good times!

So, finally time for that update...

The car is FINALLY up on spark control! A HUGE thanks to gross polluter for adding in the needed BIP's to the MS box and also to Josh at Yoshifab for the VERY nicely built adapter for the CAS. Between the work done by each of those, just the wiring and a minor glitch that was discovered were all relatively easy to swap to. With the addition of this setup, I've got a base timing map on it, but will be headed for a couple hours of dyno time in the next few weeks.

And now for the pic's!

Nice. So, is that a new adapter for the B20 for the CAS?

Yup. Mine's the prototype from Josh, so they may become available from him before long.

Yup, probably won't go sequential on this car. Seems to run solid as is, don't feel like setting up individual drivers and such.

Interestingly, the swap to wasted spark has cured the random stumble cruising on the freeway as well. Drove to Davis and back, didn't stumble AT ALL!

Dyno time this week possibly.

Dyno booked for next week for a few hours. Should be interesting to see how it wakes up! Anxiety is running high already.

Finally hit up the dyno today. Needed some light fuel tuning, spark map was pretty spot-on for WOT runs, didn't play with the moderate throttle runs. This was actually running on the same tune that Kenny did up for dhalillama's car. Played with it up and down a little, I'd either gain torque or hp at the expense of the other.

Final run was 120/120 at the wheels. I lightly tweaked the dip a little after my dyno time was up, along with some 20-80kpa tuning, AE tuning, etc. so it actually idles solid, AE seems pretty happy, rev's nicely, cruise afr's are reasonably stable even. Might try kicking ego correction on one of these days as well. Seeing the last pull, 13.0 seems to be the sweet spot, so I may play with that and see if it picks up just a little on the butt-dyno. Woulda tried on the actual dyno but I was outa time and they were already hanging out a little late for me.

When I come up to visit I can help you get it dialed in a bit further, but the numbers look good!
I would flatten out the AFR, then work on the timing. So many NA motors are way conservative on the timing and throttle response, mileage suffer. I have a couple det-cans built that you can use too.

This motor is pretty loud when it starts pinging, haven't heard a PEEP from it yet. Timing at WOT is still in the low 30's at this point as well, dunno just how far it'll go. We upp'd it a little, HP went up, torque went down. Dropped it a little and the opposite happened. Tuning the AFR's is easy enough with autotune and log files, just gotta head out to the country for some reasonable pulls.

I'll definitely take you up on it though Eric! It still seems like it should have more grunt up top, could just be it's just out of gearing as well though, plus the lack of a balanced bottom end...

Years after it shoulda been done, finally made up an adjustable panhard, some fresh poly in it, and got it mounted. Had to shift the axle about 3/8" to the drivers side to give it approx 1/4" offset to the drivers side without me in it, and with a half tank. Should sit nicely centered with my in it, a full tank, and perhaps a passenger, so hopefully no more scrubbing the driveline on the tunnel.

Also finally managed to break the drag link free of the idler arm so a fresh prototype poly idler arm bushing will be going in when I get a chance to get out to the press.

It's a design flaw. The pinion is massively offset, the tunnel is not. With the 1.75" prop shafts it was less of a problem, but when the uped the shaft to 2" on the injected cars it became a big problem. You will need tunnel mods to fix it. (Big Hammer)

Actually, not really any tunnel mods needed. Diff is centered and the 3" driveline seems to clear thus far, though I haven't loaded it to the gills, which I never do on that car anyway these days.

Very nice 144!

What sort of problems did you have with your Celica box? I've had one of those since 1989 & seen it all. 3.54 or 3.28 1st gear?

Your engine is a bit of a mismatch, that cam is about the same size as a K cam, just tight LCA. With the right cam it will be a MUCH tougher engine. 4-1 very wrong with the baby cam, it would be much happier with the B20E exhaust manifold with the 2.125" section cut to the right length.

34° total timing for stock rod ratio.

Yeah, this motor definitely isn't quite the build my wagon motor is, but there's more in the works. With a built bottom end at 9:1 it'll get a custom header setup for a 15G, gotta figure out a cam that'll be happy with the turbo. The VPD cam is actually quite streetable and looking at the dyno it still pulls pretty solid, but I know there's plenty that's hurting the motor. Aside from the lack of being balanced, the header having at least 1 or 2 holes or cracks inside the collector, plus the 4-1, a few changes would really help, but they're in the books to be addressed one way or the other down the road.

As for the Celica box, it's nicer shifting than my M41 was, plus it's a legit 5th so no more OD issues. The downfalls though, between poor casting on the bellhousing that required machining to fit, poor pilot bushing that didn't fit at all, plus the .85 5th on a car equipped with a 4.1 diff makes it insane on the freeway. The car was a factory M40 4.10 car, which was even more hell, but I'm hoping to get the .63 5th of a T5z. As for 1st, I'm honestly not sure since the trans was a basket case that ended in legal action against the seller, so it's likely a hodgepodge of this and that, so I have no idea what the ratios are.

So the Dellows bellhousing, not the greatest quality, huh? Was thinking about going the same route on mine.
