i have tried to erase that phrase from my vocabulary. "there's GOTTA be" or "someone HAS to know".
driving down the road on fumes, looking for a gas station, and you say " there's gotta be one over here".
no there doesnt.

It's not a T3/4, the OEM turbo on a MkII MR2 is a CT26.

It's great that you're getting the hairdryer free, but there's a whole lot more to this than the usual slap on a turbo and go.

Sure. So how do you plan to teach the NA engine management to understand boost for fuel and timing? There's no manifold pressure sensor, and the maps don't go where you need to compensate for forced induction.

did some reasearch on that all ready, using the unichip to re format the stock ecu to read for new fuel/air curves using lager injectors and fuel and oil pumps, upgraded fuel rail. planing on dropping the the compression ratio when pistons become avail.

Sent a letter to the guys at turbo magazine they gave a list of things that might be useful and the names of some business down south that can help with the electronic stuff

Unichip? I guess you've never worked with a Toyco ECM. They can't be chipped, there is no separate memory in a Toyco ECM, and they burn the code into ROM onboard the processor(s).

BTW, Superchips and JET have both been proven to be liars and thieves with Toyota products. I would not consider even attempting to work with them.

i think we need a "Try to stump Lance" section.
I agree with this, although he's great to have around. Good source of knowledge and all that.

I just took a look at Unichip. They appear to know what they are doing, and my bet is they will recommend the HKS F-Con V for the tC. I surely would, and they clearly state it is the ideal piggyback/standalone for drive-by-wire engines. Add $1250 + tuning time to the bill.

GReddy is doing theirs with e-Manage. I don't know if e-Manage will convert a vacuum detecting engine to a boost detecting engine without some magic. I know a few guys who've had really good results with e-Manage on Supras, but I'd bet on the F-Con being the ideal solution to the problem.

Yeah, body work. I suck at painting and shaping body panels. I usually trade engine and transmission work for body work because I know I suck at it.
