    So it has been a while but.. All I needed to do was adjust the set screws for the aftermarket TB. Apparently that causes a lot of funky issues.

    Correct Discoshit. It is the same for a 1j VVTI. So now I'm trying to narrow down the problem. With the aftermarket TB I was worried that there would be an issue. But this just started to happen a few weeks ago and I have had the motor in for well over a year now. No issues till lately. Im at a loss here. I have checked all vacuum lines, IC piping. No lose plugs anywhere. Really at this point I was grasping at straws. So any ideas?

    Motor is a 1jz VVTI? I started noticing about 6 weeks ago the RPM would drop a little when first started. Now it wont stay running till its fully warmed up. It has a aftermarket TB. Motor came from a 110 swapped to cable. Tuned with a PFC. Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you. Debating on roof wing.. Here is another Toyota at MBD that was killing it. I got a video of him chasing me, chasing a lsx rx7. But to lazy to figure out how to tag it on here. And its a pretty crappy quality. I always wanted to get to the NE. Parc looks fun.

    This is static. Will make a 500mile round trip no problem. And these spring rates are actually considered pretty light for "VIP" style.

    Under 25-30mph it can be rough on bumps or rough roads. Over that its not bad. At 70-90 on the interstate its like a caddy. But then again the shocks are valved to have those spring rates in them. I cant fit a cig pack between the frame and the road. But have no problem driving from Charleston S.C. to Atlanta. No scraping and pretty comfy to be honest.

    Thank you Gordo! I have 26/24k on my Q45. Rides nice but the shocks are made for them. T-Demand makes a good product.

    I'm running 215/45/17 and 225/45/17 Achilles ATR Sport 2. Rear is zeroed out (camber, toe, caster) front is -3 camber, 7 caster and +1/8th toe. Nice turn in and mid corner balance. I'm not slammed into the earth either. I have NCRA for a wider front track. Would like to go to 235/40/17 all the way around. But on the front but with the NCRA I would have to run too much - camber for it to be effective on normal/aggressive driving.
