History
I bought this baby in Dec. 2009. About a week later I blew up the stock motor.

Two owners before me, the guy cut cords for the restrictions, aka the stock turbo timer, boost controler, pretty much all of the standard safety doodads that toyota put on these things. He put a 2002 ford focus rad. fan in, manual switch for both the rad. fan and the fuel pump as well as a manual boost controler. He then had one good idea, to run a front mounted intercooler. The next guy got it running again, HKS SSQV BOV, timing, under 18 lbs of boost. Suddenly it ran without hickups... So he decided not to screw with it. The AWHP was rated at 235. Honestly, the whole mess looked like Super Mario put it together.

In June of '10 I bought a 2004 Toyota ST215 (4th gen 3sgte) from japan. I currently have a lightweight flywheel and the motor to be installed. I am didling with the wiring harness mess..... I'm begining to think it'll be worth $1k to get it handled for me rather than screw with it.
