just wire the actuators, before going to all that trouble I recomend you try it with the check valves. iThe power curve is different, it seems more peaky great on the highway sucky from a stoplight as the low end is not as powerful( i.e. more lag)
I have been running TTC for over 4 month now and I like it very much. since its better for the turbos also (pre-spool both turbo at same time). and yeh, thats what I tell people.."I have small single".
I would use only the check valve, order couple of sets from Toyota, or find yourself a metal check valve that will last longer.
if you wire it open, its very very hard to go back to sequential.
most of the time the check valve for the EGCV will go out first due to intense heat from the turbo. I had to replace it once..simple.
I tired doing TTC by wiring it up, and now i wont get more then .2bar boost, I know i fucked something up, =X, and I broke something, so I knwo i can't put it back into seq =X, but I'll be heading out to Mani's this morning, we will figure out, what the hell is wrong. Ill keep you guys updated.
only use good quality Japanease vacuum hose, not Kragen hoses.
then I use tigh-up to secure the tips, never poped off, after it heats up a bit, its actually hard to get it off! (good thing).
ETTC sounds very interesting, but I couldnt understand the diagram and no one in my area knows how to do it, plus, I rather not mess with any electricals....not my specialty.
BTW, I by-passed both VSV (took it off) and ran hose straight from the steel vacuum tube to actuators (eliminated 2 hoses...less vacuum hose, the better!). works great, except sometimes the check valve will lose pressure so just have to get it pressurized again after monring start by driving it for couple of mnutes.
I'm with Flavio on this one. ETTC kicks ass. I had a friend wire mine up and it took less than 30 minutes! Got a little switch mounted on the dash. PLEASE NOTE!!!! Drive the car for A DAY OR TWO in TTC mode before deciding if you like it. I HATED it at forst but once you get the hang of how it works it kicks ass!!!!!! I've had it for seveal months and I have only flipped the switch to sequential once and I almost laughed at how mellow the car felt.
Remember..give it a few days to learn to drive in ttc mode!!
I did the ETTC mod and I have to say that it is pretty good. I like it cause I can switch between the modes, and it was fairly simple to do. Also I didn't have to add more vacuum hoses to the engine. Best of all it actually works!!!
One thing should be mentioned though if you are using TTC as a diagnostic tool because of problems with the sequential transition ETTC willnot help it only forces the car to go Twin earlier in the powerband. For diagnosis you need to do the mechanical conversion.
After I have installed all the new seals, BCsprings, retainers, locks and buckets,
with T-belt off, put crank at -10 btdc so all pistons are slightly down, install new BC 272 cams, install cam gears, torque cams as per manual. Then turn CAMS clockwise to tdc notches, and than turn CRANK to tdc...
Recently acquired a rhd supra and slowly starting the process of swapping things over. Got myself some glass headlights and wanted to swap bulbs while I’m at it. Been told jdm lights differ from usdm. Hard finding more info on this. Thoughts? Trying to find a quality hid system, seems LED isn’t...
Just installed a pair of S2 taillights on my 93 Supra RZ. I would like to convert to LED. I would like to purchase from here as the prices seem very good.
According to my search in the Forums, looks like I need 2 x 7440 and 2 x 7443 bulbs Just not...
