😆 I’m waiting to get my car back from my dyno tuner maybe next week, then I’ll post up some pics.
Meanwhile here’s a small teaser for now of one of things I was working on. 🤫

Time for another update, but this time dyno-tuning time.
98RON & 12psi boost:
127.5rwkw @ 5798rpm (about 170kw @ engine)
243.3rwNM @ 4688rpm

I guess I was expecting a little bit more, but in reality the power figure correlates to Ely’s figure of 136rwkw @13psi when he did his dyno run with his forged engine a few years ago. In his case, and now in my case, the standard intercooler has reached the peak efficiency and there was no real point trying to add more boost. In other words it has to go if I want to make more power. There is still plenty of room left in the Supra injectors, which were sitting at about 62% duty cycle, and I have plenty left in boost capability from the GT2860RS turbo.

The power curve (red line) looks nice and flat too:

Now I’m on the hunt for a larger intercooler. Bring it on! :supz:

I designed a custom bracket for the new smart ignition coil that had to be installed before the dyno run. Laser cut out of 4mm mild steel, then powder coated.

Damn those are nice numbers still! :) Well there's plenty of room for a bigger intercooler in the engine bay so I guess you won't have any problem finding one! Keep it up!
