    BEW vs European (pd150 or pd115) injector adjuster

    I recently acquired a German AJM PD engine for a project. Part of the project is to upgrade the nozzles to PP1043 nozzles and have the nozzles properly installed and balanced. (and tune, of course :rolleyes:) I've sent the injectors to DBW and learned that the pump piston and ball pin for...

    PD control with EDC15P+

    I've been running a modded 1Z with a 68pin ECU in my Toyota truck for a few years. (Mods in sig) Anyway, it recently bit the dust, triggering my "must be time to upgrade." :D I'm going to replace it with a PD, controlled with an EDC15P+ ECU. I have a few questions to start, regarding the...

    1.9L block information

    Some years ago, I did a 1Z/AHU swap into my Toyota truck. It's worked great until a few days ago, when It may have blown a piston, ring or something; I'm not sure yet. I was looking at replacement options when the thought that "this could be an opportunity" came to my evil mind. :cool...

    High altitude starts

    I know this isn't really a "power enhancement" problem, and its a pretty rare situation, but I'd like to hear from those who are running modded engines. On a recent road trip, we stayed at 9000ft elevation. Temperatures dipped into the 40's F. It wasn't particularly cold, just high elevation...

    Timing belt crank sprocket on 1Z

    I've been helping a friend with timing issues on a 1Z engine: To make a long story short, the crank sprocket was loose and fell off when the bolt was removed. Fortunately, the crank was ok, and only required a little clean up of the mating...

    remote oil filter

    I installed a spin-on remote oil filter adapter so I could move my oil filter to a more accessible place. This has got to be a common issue for swaps. The problem is the ^%$#^%@ :mad::mad: thing leaks! Like a sieve. I know it's not just my installation, others are having the same problems...

    LED's for conversion instrument clusters

    I just stumbled onto this cool product - It's an LED light that will directly plug into the incandescent light sockets found on Toyotas. As you know, some of the indicator lights from the VW ECM must be LED's. I soldered an led/resistor combo onto my instrument cluster to work around this...

    GT2056 Carnage? or?

    Yesterday I was towing a trailer against a pretty stiff headwind, when a lowder than normal "hissing" sound come from the engine compartment. :confused: EGT at the time was between 1100F and 1200F. Boost was between 15psi and 18psi. Then the exhaust note changed from it's usual hiss to a...

    Tachometers for conversions

    Hello everyone! I thought I'd start a thread about adding a tachometer to a conversion. In general, it shouldn't be too difficult. One just needs to be sure the signal put out by the ECM matches what the tachometer is expecting. I am attempting to connect the stock tachometer on my Toyota...

    Dialing in a big turbo

    Hello everyone! I would like to discuss techniques for dialing in a big turbo upgrade. Any procedures are welcome. :) As everyone knows, simply bolting it on and stomping on the throttle can lead to disasterous results. I've read various forums about the importance of EGT's...
