That's a sizable turbo. Looks good.

Tomei LSD is in.

Coming out


In pieces (gear oil stinks)


Stuffed in


Ready to go back


Still waiting on 1 new kouki tail light and adapter harnesses before I can drive it and break in the diff and need to confirm turbo is getting sufficient oil.

Time to hit up spirit peaks or parc. How'd you clamp down the diff to torque it? Did you set the backlash?

Locktite and an impact gun that I used to take them off. Then wacked them another 1/8-1/4 turn. I did not set the backlash. I made sure not to mix up the shims and didn't notice any abnormal wear on the pinion or the ring and just said fuck it.

Never heard of spirit peaks. I might try to get down to parc sometime though..

Spirit Peaks is in South Toutle, WA. A wider track than PARC and is a bit a of a drive, but from what I see from posts it looks like a good time. Someday I might make it out there, when I get either a welded diff or 2-way in my car.

All ready to go just waiting on taillight harnesses and reinstating insurance!!


EDIT: Got the harnesses, no rewiring, no cutting, no splicing, just plug and play.


Will finish breaking in the diff today, drain and refill, and do a little tuning and driving.

I also picked up a vibrant ultra quiet resonator that I plan to have welded up in the next few weeks/months, just to quiet it up a little more.

EDIT2: Finished 'breaking in' the differential, basically went to a parking lot and did figure 8's and circles? and then changed out the stinky ass gear oil.

Daily driving it now and tuning as I go along.

I put the stripe back on one side to see if I liked it. Yea, it's electrical tape. I like it. What do you think?



Next up is brakes and suspension/bushings and fixing little things, but mostly, I just want to drive it.

Aaaannd, Just for Fun Here is my Old RX-7.


And here's the car my SR20 came out of.

2863, Good choice. What size turbine housing?

I like the OEM Black stripe, but I'm a queer for all things OEM lol.

Also if you need help with your calibration send me an email @ [email protected] if not you can hit me up on IG @ ScootTuned or ScootScootScootScoot

Where'd you get your center panel and lower trim from? Did you get them as a set? I only have the taillights.

.63 ar on the exhaust housing. I'm hoping it doesn't choke it out too much up top, but I'm looking for a good usable midrange anyway and so far I'm liking it.

The center panel and lower trim piece was on the shell when I bought it..

This dealership on ebay has 'decent' prices, but shit ain't cheap.

2863 should be good for quick spool but power will probably be falling off by 7ish I would say.

2867/71 are supposed to be well matched as far as Comp/Turbine wheel relation.

If you find the urge for more later try looking into a TR3030R in a .63 T3
Things a responsive monster. B18C's are seeing 20lbs by 3500 with a proper setup (10.0:1 C/R and a Good Sized Turbo Cam) and still holds power just shy of 9K.

I'm totally fine with it falling off at 7k as long as it has good midrange punch. Currently running 14psi for initial tuning and it 'feels' way faster than it did with the stocker at 11 (obviously) and spool seems comparable. I heavily considered a 2867/2871 but I wanted to try the 2863 and considering I'm on a unknown mileage stock SR20 I didn't want to rebuild/upgrade the engine. I think it will suit my needs and once I want a little more I'll throw in some cams and/or crank up the boost and run aux injection, but I just want to drive it and enjoy it and try not to blow it up or crash it. Just want a fun car, not a race car.

Well, Good and Bad.
The Good. Got some Apexi N1 ExV shocks for $575 NIB.


Got a new shift boot.


The Bad. Apparently, I didn't tighten down the turbo to the manifold enough and after a few heat cycles, it's leaking. I cannot get at the lock tabs to tighten it on the car and I think the turbo needs to come back off. Fuck me. It's literally only 2 loose nuts. I've tried to get at the locking tabs, but just can't get enough leverage to bend them. Lame. Currently, I'm in denial, but will eventually have to accept that it has to be pulled.

4-15-19 Edit: Got the turbo off and tightened up and back on. My 5 y/o daughter even helped me put it back together. Unfortunately, I've realized I may have a small fuel leak at the #4 injector. Lucky it's not hard to get to and I'm glad I caught it. It's not the injector, but where the rail meets the manifold. Driving it today, but will probably park it until I can get that fixed because if fuel pressure isn't 100% there's no reason to try and tune it.

Edit 2: Some weird shit going on. When it's cold it seems to run fine at ~14afr, when warm it runs ~12afr and if I try to lean it out it runs like shit. I have a feeling it could be the 02 sensor going out and giving false readings because it's like 5" from the turbo, which again, not good for tuning. Or it's because the fuel pressure is dropping off from the small leak and getting poor atomizing from the injector. Back in the garage till I can fix the fuel leak. Other wise fun as shit, no problem getting sideways, but I kind of drive like an old man.

Going to fix the injector rail seats and put a heatsink on the 02 sensor and get the shocks on. Considering some Z32 brakes, but need to do some research for 4 lug. Sentra SER disks?

I use Nordlock washers on my turbo. I didn't even bother using the locking tabs. Hard to break off the Nordlock washers once they've been tightened.
