    Are you going gearbox too? Or will the one in there cope? There have been a couple of 4G63T swaps in the past, but I'm afraid I never knew the finer details. One of the was Dutch Driver, you may get some info from the link in this thread: https://www.clubvr4.com/forum/showthread.php?35300-what-the-hell

    it is a pain in the back side to get it out but it will come out. i took mine out a few months ago i ended up taking all the wire harness clips and clamps off the loom to be able to move the look out the way to make it easier to remove the ABS ecu.

    Viamoto is a great online shop for parts. I'd echo all the advice above really. Without upgrading the turbos you can make the car substantially faster. If you want headline power numbers then custom pipework for turbo swap is the only way. The tubs are small, so restrictive at high revs where the power numbers are made. Having said that they can blow harder lower down the rev range, so the torque figure and area under the curve can be seriously improved. Using a G-meter for...

    It can happen if you lift off and brake hard coming to a stop in auto too. Some people have a lot of problems and some don't - hence I suspect it is a combination of quality of the valve, other boost leaks on the car, the tune on the ecu, the driver themselves etc... My car is relatively subtle to look at even though it is well modified. The exhaust tip and the dump valve are my two "immature" modifications!

    I have a whoosh noise! The valve dumping to atmosphere will mean you have a brief period of running rich, as the car will be fuelling for the air it has measured in through the maf, but has exited unmeasured through the BOV. How much that affects you depends on the BOV, the driving style, the tune on your car etc. The only time I notice is if I accelerate hard, then dump the clutch and keep it dumped. The engine stalls then, I'm sure because there is way too much fuel for the air and...

    I'd check the plugs. In doing that you'll also check the leads and coil packs. It could also be a vacuum leak - have you got a boost gauge?

    Hmmm does not sound good. So you got a known working throttle body from Mo. Fitted this, the TPS started to work, and now it is not working again. Then the immobiliser kicked in and you can't start the car. Is that right?

    Evo valves fit. I use an atmospheric BOV, an HKS SSQV. This can lead to the car stalling in some circumstances which is for the reasons Tim mentioned above.

    I looked into this recently with Wouter but I can't remember what we decided. I seem to remember tube and fin is better for most applications? Lighter, so easier to recover from heat soak etc. I'd be tempted to see if I could fit one below the crash bar, but I'm not sure if your option 3 would do that?

    Which sensor where you adjusting. The TPS on the back of the throttle body or the aps on the front of the throttle body. Least I think it is that way round the one with the idle switch is the 4 wire sensor. It will be good to see if the throttle fixed you issue. It will make you happy to get you far back up and running.

    Davezj replied to a thread Tps short , in General / Questions
    It is still pointing to the tps not being adjusted correctly. Probably not seeing the idle position of the TPS correctly. When the TPS is closed the idle position out should be active. And as soon as you crack the throttle open slightly the idle position out should deactivate. This is what you are setting up with the feeler gauge. As your car is an auto you have an TPS (throttle position sensor) and an APS (accelerator position sensor). Both of which have to be setup correctly.
