lol @ my above post... none of the above actually eventuated because:



so.. the car has since gone back to WTF auto and the motor has been torn out and pulled apart..

its munched a set of brand new Arias forgies.. also scored up the block etc... i wont go into too many details, however im getting a new block, head (if needed) and pistons courtesy of the WTF guys.. (the motor had less than 1000k's on it so this definitely shouldnt happen..

while the motor is out im gonna invest in some other bits too..

im replacing the microtech with a platinum series Haltech, gonna rebuild the turbo (showing signs of shaft play) also gonna fit a GREX oil cooler kit (inbuilt thermostat etc)

no word on the cause of this failure. but with a motor safely (very safely) tuned to only 17psi and having less than 1000k's on it.. its gotta be something wierd...

dunno....

on a plus side, the gearbox felt awesome for the 1.2km i drove it... :-(

ouch, pretty painful to listen to.. It's a good thing the workshop's taking responsibility.

Mind if I ask why your swapping out the microtech, I was considering one for my car..

couple of reasons... mainly due to the lack of support... The microtech tech guy (yes apparently there is only 1 guy) seems like he is always on leave...

it runs the motor fine, but i want better datalogging etc... so if like the above happens, i can tell why.. the microtech doesnt let me do that... or at least i cant get it to..

This is now for sale.. the motor has been torn out and being rebuilt again by Tristan.. apparently the fault was a .10c washer that either failed or wasnt fitted between the oil pump and pickup..

I will either sell the thing as a whole or part it out.. if you know of anyone chasing quality 1jz parts.. point them in my direction..

I will put up a for sale thread.
