That oughta void the warranty eh? Taking it to the local Scion dealership once its done may lead to a few scratched noggins.

Good luck with the ambitious project.

Take it to the dealership and say the engine is making a strange whine sound. When they ask how long you have owned it and ask how that got there just act puzzled It will be worth the money to see the look on their faces

LOL, my luck they would take it off and throw it away.

More progress will be made, I'll post about it when it happens. I'd like to have it pushing boost by the end of may.

If youre bored, you could ask how much they want for the driverside backrest of the back seat

... and maybe what they want for the motor...?

www.performanceparts104.com is the place that has it. I haven't been there in a while, but not sure when i'll get back there.

$800 for the motor listed on the site. usually they can be had for a little cheaper than listed there.

From times I have seen, it would probably do a 16.5ish right now.

GIven 6-8psi, I'm looking for mid 14'*.

The biggest thing Is I am hoping to change the torque curve and give this thing ANY kind of power gains under 4K rpm.. it'* SOO useless below 4K it isn't funny. Over 4k under WOT and it pulls fairly good.... bit O boost should solve it
