    ABV-VSV on Apex'i Power FC

    So as with many who do a 1JZVVTI swap- I used the info on supraforums to get everything up and running. No issues. Everything is good. However, after speaking with my tuner, he recommended a MAC solenoid as a boost controller to ensure getting the most from my tune. I've already thrown out all the OEM stuff including all of the VSV crap. Basically, I am just looking for confirmation that on plug "16p "H"- PIN 14 would be the one that would be responsible for sending signal to my solenoid. Considering it's a PFC and the boost controller is built in, I assume to use the functions I already have versus buying a whole new stand alone boost controller. Looking for confirmation if anyone would know this to be true. Thanks.

    Okay, well again, neither post on here actually addressed what I needed help with, but instead nit-picked otherwise useless info. I have the answer now and the thread can be closed. Praise be to some Nordic God somewhere or something... The End

    Regardless, it's the one I have. I've read countless times it's the same one everyone else used, just rebranded. Either way...

    "Half China Bullshit Build"

    So I'm getting a little further along in my build, and I haven't been on here much at all, but thought maybe I'll post some of my build stuff up so that everyone can either check it out, or send me death threats or whatever it is you guys fancy. Here's the 90' when I bought it. Despite the fact that it was half vinyl wrapped, it was in pretty good shape. It came with this super sweet 7M that had a BHG between 5 and 6. So I took that out, and all sorts of other stuff. I deleted the ABS and made all new hard lines and placed a Wilwood prop valve in the midst of it all. Also went with some aluminum Z32 front brakes calipers, Hawk HP Plus pads, and R1 Concepts drilled and slotted rotors. I'm running the prop valve backward of what Wilwood says because I rather adjust the bias in the front than the rear... maybe I'll die, maybe I won't. Don't know yet, but for right now the brakes work well enough to stop it at about 3mph (pushing speed). Since installing the rotors I decided to pop on the ARP wheel studs since I need a spacer for these knock off wheels I currently am rolling around on, plus I can sleep better at night knowing I have more ARP stuff on my car. Oh, I also did the whole MK3 diff swap thing with all the xcessive bits. I'm not too concerned with all the rest of the suspension stuff yet... I really just want to get this thing driving, then handle the suspension stuff later. (get it? Handle the suspension stuff? HANDLE?) Okay, enough of that. Anyways, I'm going to put this engine in it. Just kidding. I already did. Since I took that picture, I also ran most of the fuel lines and made a cute little lid to access my fuel tank stuff. But there's no fuel pump in there. It's under the car. I went with a Bosch 044 and decided to run it inline because it's more convenient if there are any issues in the future. I'm still waiting on my AN clamps to make the lines look all pretty under the car, so no pictures of those right now. Here's what's in the engine bay for now.... I have the engine mounted as far back as the xcessive mounts allow, as I've also made my trans tunnel a little larger where it meets the firewall... except apparently I can't use the xcessive trans mount (as it was designed) if I want to run everything that far back... so I'm going to make my own trans mount this weekend. Where I currently stand: Need to get MK3 trans stuff to convert my remote shift R154 to get the shifter in the right place (will order everything from Driftmotion once it's all released) Need a driveshaft Mount and route oil cooler/lines Mount and route power steering cooler/lines Mount and route intercooler piping Run wiring... Get a tune... Then begin all the suspension stuff. I only work on the car one day a week, and am in no rush... so if this doesn't get updated super frequently or whatever... that's why. The engine as it sits has- ARP head studs New OEM headgasket New OEM water pump New OEM oil pump and strainer New OEM front main seal New OEM rear main seal K's Racing T3 Turbo manifold 780cc injectors GReddy T67 w/ .73AR Exhaust GReddy intercooler Tial MVR wastegate... Evolution lightweight flywheel ACT 6 Puck unsprung clutch Will be tuned on PFC D-Jetro. I think that's it?

    LOL no. Absolutely not. My friend put that on my roof. Also, I'm friends with everybody at DM (30 min from me) so yeah. I wouldn't "steal" an idea from any of my friends... Either way, no I'm not, and no this isn't staying on or anywhere near this car once it's done.

    Been really busy with school, but got some intercooler piping taken care of. Harness is in and hopefully this weekend or next I'll be able to do first start up. Will add updates as that happens... Small video https://www.instagram.com/p/BU6Ekbnh1F1/

    LOL it's -6. So only slightly larger than OEM. Also, I bought all my lines and fittings from JEGS... so if it's Chinese... uhm well...

    Everyone, thank you. However, I do not intend on running E85.

    "Half China Bullshit Build"

    This weekend I finished up all the fuel lines, mounted up the intercooler, replaced my remote shift setup with MA70 shift lever and housing, and built a trans brace/mount. I didn't like that the XM brace wouldn't allow me to run my engine/trans as far back as their engine mounts would allow me to... Try not to mind my hoarding in the background.. Simple design that keeps the same geometry as the XM mount, but is further back, and more solid. I pretty much just got rid of all of the OEM fuel hard lines and left the single brake line. Once all the hard lines were gone I put all my new lines in there. Depending on what parts come in this week, I'll either focus on the oil cooler/power steering cooler setup as well as intercooler piping... or wiring.

    We haven't sold 9K branded bubble shift knobs in years... we do have the aluminum and steel knobs available currently. Including the weighted ones. What's your current setup? I would probably go with a 3.73 if I planned to street it often... However, since I decided to stick with the R154 instead of the CD009, I figured I could use the faux torque of the 4.3. Every build/intention is different, so the longer gears may very well suit your car perfectly.

    Stolen from MKIIItech.com- '86.5 - '90 GA70s w/the 1G-GE have a 4.56, clutch-pack or Torsen LSD 7.5" differential, NOT compatible with any of the other A70 diff setups. All 1G-GTE equipped GA70s have a 4.56, clutch-pack or Torsen LSD differential. '86.5-'92 MA70 N/A MKIIIs without Sport Package have a 4.30, open differential. '86.5-'92 MA70 N/A MKIIIs with Sport Package (TEMS & headlight washers on '86.5 - '88 : TEMS & PPS on '89-'92) have a 4.30, clutch-pack LSD differential. '87 - '88 MA70 turbo MKIIIs have a 3.91 clutch-pack LSD differential. '89+ MA70 turbo MKIIIs have a 3.73 clutch-pack LSD differential. '90 - '92 JZA70 Limited and R MKIIIs manual trans cars have a 4.10 Torsen LSD differential and auto trans cars have a 3.91 Torsen LSD differential. Note that a LSD was an option- so you could get a NA base model w/a LSD.

    Lastly, I don't have a bead roller to make a sturdy trap door with, so I settled for this, and it works fine, so fuck it.

    Also the only thing so far that I know of that was made in Taiwan was the manifold. Everything else is authentic...

    I don't understand? It's the same wastegate? MVR...

    LOL Like I said, I understand it, but have no clue how to explain it. Higher number = lower top speed. Lower number = Higher top speed. There. lol

    "Half China Bullshit Build"

    I'm sure that is part of the reason, but also for my sake- I have the 4.3 rear gear. Since I plan to use this car for drifting, the higher rear gear will help keep me in a better RPM band... in theory. In drag racing most street style cars there also run higher rear gears so that the power gets put down "faster"... it's hard to explain for me. I'm not a teacher. lol

    If that's all anybody has to complain about, I guess I'm doing okay otherwise. I originally just had a piece of aluminum riveted down around the cut, but it looked sketchy to me... While diamond plate isn't exactly "full of class" it's a functional door in case I should need to access the tank.

    Full Beautiful Blue Interior

    Car was reupholstered right before I purchased it. From the carpet to head liner is for sale. I will likely keep the dash unless you have one you are willing to trade if you want to keep the full blue interior. The entire dash is crack free, radio is fully functioning, climate control works in every way possible... everything is in great shape. I don't know what the stuff is worth, so I'll be accepting offers. If a price is REQUIRED... Then $666obo I will make an effort to update with more pictures in the next couple days. If you need further pictures, please PM me with your cell number and I will text additional pictures. Puppy not for sale.

    Climate Control and pigtails pending. Trying to move some of these larger items though. I guess nobody has a want for the worst recovered seats ever, huh?
