    Cool Lui's Single Turbo build

    Well as some of you know my supra has been off the road since third week in August due to having troubles with Hybrid turbo's.
    My supra has been at ToyotaGT for over month and half now while they were being refurbished and while being fully stripped done all the turbo side over the past week been thinking very hard to put all back hybrid's but finally come to the decision of going single & that's now what im doing

    Placed order Tuesday with Joe at PHR over the states & ordered my PHR Street Single kit with cast manifold & GT60 polished turbo with Tial 44mm waste gate / PRH chrome turbo blanket & new HKS SSQ bov complete with ali flange to be welded on hard pipe / RMM (Rod Millen Motorsports) 3" stainless double de-cat downpipe All should be with me within next week.

    Brought PE 650 high impedance injectors courtesy of Jake thanks very much.

    Mocal 230mm 19 row transmission oil cooler with all the special fittings.

    Braided line with areoquip fittings for breather pipe from cam cover to air intake.

    I am having all work carried out at ToyotaGT who has been looking after my car while it's been sick & now looking very much to be all ready by end of month ready for Ryan G to map it at surrey rolling road.

    Going to be very similar set up to Wez's Supra


    !!! PIC OF FINISHED INSTALL & all work carried out by James@ToyotaGt !!!




    All I can say is that I highly rate ToyotaGT for there workmanship 10/10 for looking after my car & doing a great install + returning my supra back to me spotless well done guys & if any one wanting a great job done to there supra give them a shout you won't be dissapointed !!!

    Pic's of my supra with hybrids out



    Phr Sreet Single Kit going in





    RMM (Rod Millen Motorsports) 3" stainless double de-cat downpipe from PHR




    Mocal 230mm 19 row transmission oil cooler with all special fittings.




    PHR Street Single kit complete with polished GT60 turbo / cast manifold / screamer pipe / Tial 44mm waste gate / braided lines /4" K&N filter with polished intake pipe / new 3" RPP stainless double de-cat pipe / new HKS SSQ bov & welded flange to go on hard pipe / PHR chrome turbo blanket & all necessary bits to fully connect up



    Also already have the fllowing fitted on my car HKS 264 in & out cams / walbro fuel pump / Blitz LM V-Spec front mount intercoooler / Aeromotive FPR / Top of range Aquamist Water Injection kit / E-Manage Ultimate / Blitz SBC I colour boost controller / AEM AFR guage + sensor / Blitz egt gauge + sensor & see my garage for rest of my full spec.

    All my old parts that have come out have already been sold & snapped up buy two members already, all might have left is possibly front decat if mine does not fit downpipe for PHR Street kit Downpipe.

    Are you going with a standard stall TC Lui? If so the one fluidyne is OK but personally I'd go with 2 that size.

    Breather system should be routed back into turbo intake pipework as per standard

    Sparks go with NGK Iridiums heat grade 7 should still suffice for a small single - BKR7EIX.

    Personally I would wrap the downpipe only if the pipework isn't already heat coated.

    Cheers,

    Brian.

    Congrats Lui, looking forward to the build.

    01. What's the best way for refitting breather sytem ???
    Mine is open but I wouldnt advise on what I have, back into the intake via a catch with decent sized piping should be better.

    02.What's best spark plugs to go back in ???
    I use BKR8EIX on mine without any issue.

    03.Is oil cooler in pic above good enough for cooling auto box & where's best place to mount it ???
    Not sure I like the design of that, looks like it could cause a restriction in flow, surely a regular tube and fin type would be better.

    04.Is it good to wrap down pipe from turbo ???
    I would yes, the only reason I dont have it on mine at the moment is I havent got round to redoing it, its sitting here waiting to go on.

    Lui, you will need a uk spec decat pipe to fit between the 2nd decat and turbo down pipe. I had to.
