Quote from: Petrus on February 9, 2024, 19:23DARN Been asked if I am interested in buying a 1ZZ-FE TRD supercharger kit.Well no. But .... yes Would be interesting in my lightweight. Never mind any top end increase, just the low end oomph For one I have no qualms about a hatch in the bulkhead. Secondly I have ample slush funds. Also pretty competent body repairer, mechanics and machine shop next to eachother a 1 km. Lastly have other daily.So, depends. To be continued--- (may take a while, quite a while)Am busy with the Nimbus and the Vespa anyway
Quote from: jvanzyl on February 9, 2024, 21:24Is it just the physical kit or does it include the ECU? If not management then the other part of the decision is what ecu and if there is a decent local mapper that supports it... But please got for it! 😁
Quote from: Petrus on February 9, 2024, 21:56The TRD kit came with a piggyback ecu which only controlled the additional fifth injector by copying what the car´s ECU tells the injectors to do. As such it basically did the same as the MAF mod dropping in bigger injectors. It relies on the stock ECU to sort out the fuelling. The installation manual even says so in the faults chart. It has indeed been proven that the fifth injector can be omitted entirely and replaced by said bigger injectors. The fifth injector is obviously adding 25% capacity which is about the same as the yellow 2ZZ ones in the MAF mod.It shoúld all work a treat. So fingers crossed; twice. First for it being in good condition and reasonably priced. Next the fitting. Reading the TRD manual I cannot see any challenge apart from the bulkhead. Nothing an angle grinder can´t solve. No seriously, a bit more discreet nibbler will do. Anyway, told the seller I am most definitely interested.
