alright so burgundy car is finished everything is done bolted up but ran into a problem car makes no boost.... everything is straight on the intercooler, all vaccum hoses are done, map sensor is good. So i would like some other thoughts on what it could be maybe turbos blown already? Also checked the stock bov to see if it was stuck but it wasnt so... idk throw up all the ideas you might have. Got some pics of it completed. Also he said when he did his pull it boosted in 1st shifted to second and made a loud pop i suggest intercooler piping but that wasnt it so maybe som thoughts on that? Anways on to the pics and thanks for any help given.

Check your couplers as well. Maybe one ripped and you missed it. Happened to a buddy of mine. I told him to check and he only checked the clamps but was a torn coupler. Good luck with it, nothing like the first drive in a jz powered car.

does it run ok though? Mine was drivable.. Sounded like a boat was kinda slow and didnt make boost. Replaced the ECU to fix another problem but it fixed the power issue but the other problem remained haha...

But then again that was a jza70 ecu and looks like your jzx90 or so, so probably not but always can try
