Re: Two tone panda scheme

Oh and on the arches it is approximately 8mm of white and then into black in the above photo. This is another thing that can drastically change the appearance of the 2 tone paint job.
The funny staggered line on the rear pocket is how mine was painted from factory.

Re: Two tone panda scheme

Using the deepest point of the concave body line on the wings, doors and 1/4s measure down 30mm for the change of colour. The top of the side moldings are then a further 55mm from there for a total of 85mm from the top of the molding to the body line reference point. The rear of the car is different...

Re: Replacing drain cock on block

99% sure its a tapered 1/4" BSP (BSPT) plug that you need rather than a 1/4" NPT plug.
The 20Vs have just a plug without the drain cock: Toyota P/N 90345-52003

Re: Ignition key source

Consider Run as ON.
The black and red wire is +B so it powers up the ecu and T-VIS solenoid and is in the Diagnosis box as +B.
The black and orange is used only for the ignition coil and igniter.

Re: Ignition key source

Use the original wires where possible. So use the black and red ecu power wire to power up the ecu, use the coil and igniter power wire to power up your new coil(s) this is probably black and orange.

Re: 4age on bike carbs

You can connect your new pump to the original wiring at the tank. If you decide to connect the Green and Red wire to a dash switch with the other side of the switch connected to ground that will work fine but from a safety point of view in an accident the fuel pump will keep pumping unless you consc...

You will need a fuel pump so you will need a relay so you might as well keep the Circuit Opening Relay (COR) It has 5 wires but you will only need 3, I don't know AW11 wire colours but they may be similar to an AE86. Black and Red is ignition positive, equivalent to pin 30 and 85 combined. Black and...

Re: 4age on bike carbs

1. The tacho signal comes from the igniter (black wire with red rings in an AE86) it is also in the diagnosis connector as IG- if you trace this wire inside the car you can find where to connect your new ecu output to it. Also you may need to use a tacho adapter between your ecu and the rev clock, t...

You could pop the pins out of the connectors and fit the US connectors to the jdm lamps.

Re: 20V BT BOGGY UNDER 4K

The blacktop VVT operation is off at low rpm, on during mid rpm and off again at high rpm (your cam spec will determine what your engine prefers), unlike the silvertop that is off below 4400rpm(ish) and on above that rpm. Check for fault codes, make sure the throttle position sensor is set within sp...

Using this:
http://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Wheel-Offset-Calculator#

and inputting the stock 14" Intra wheel spec of 6j +21 against yours, you need 32mm of spacing just to match the inner wheel to strut clearance.

I get about 90 psi max on 2 of my 16v engines (6kg/cm2 on gauge) both with the later type AE92/101 pumps.
I think when cold around 50-60 psi and around 30 psi at idle when up to temperature.

Have you 12V on the black/white wire at the coil and igniter with the key in the run/on position?
A quick check to see if the ecu is powered up is check for 5V on the yellow wire of the MAP sensor and TPS sensor.
