Re: First Start Up Post Engine Rebuild

If you are running on the factory Toyota ECU then it won't want to idle as your modifications have changed some of the basic engine operating conditions. You will need to set the idle speed higher to keep it idling and that is a good thing as you want to keep the engine speed up around 2000 rpm and ...

Re: Engine Break In Period + ITB Installation Considerations

I guess if you can't find a running-in oil with the zinc already added, you could use straight mineral oil with that additive. Just make sure you get a mineral oil without any friction reducing additives. Oils with friction reducing additives and synthetic oils impede the bedding in process and shou...

Re: MRP Flywheel Bolt Options

If ARP can't help you out with a shorter flywheel bolt, then grinding will get the job done. The maximum stress in the bolt is in the shank and top of the thread, so taking 3mm off the end is not an issue. The main thing when grinding is to have a container of water beside the grinder, grind in shor...

You haven't said if the engine will rev past 4000 in neutral ? But you mention limp mode so I'm going to assume that it won't go past 4000 while actually driving... if so engine load is a factor.

Yeah... if the tread width on the Hoosiers is no more than the RE71r and you are using the same wheels, then you should be OK.

Re: Surging idle

Do both of the small coolant hoses connected to the AAV get hot (like as hot as the top
radiator hose) when the engine is up to temperature ? If only one gets warm and the other
one stays cool, there is a blockage that needs to be cleared.
