The turbo failing sounds more like a defect in the turbo than a lack of BOV or slightly different oil. Especially considering that the stock turbos survive quite a long time with no BOV and oil technology from the 80s.

How are the BRD bushings for noise and vibration compared to stock? I went with far too stiff stuff for everything and have some clunks I want to be rid of, I thought it was my coilovers but I took those out and the noise is still there so I think it's the bushings.

I like my BRD bushings, didnt have much seat time with the new bushings to tell you that much! (Not driving the car at the moment because of the Turbo) But soo far I have no complaints, they also offer a solid mount for the rear differential but I just opted for the Polyurethane mount because I want more of a street/comfortable car.

I looked at your profile and noticed you're located in Canada. There is a company that's Canadian based, called XIII Motorsports, and they offer bushings as well for the ST185 maybe you could give them a call.

I have that kit in my car already actually, I like how it feels to drive but I think it might be causing some of the cabin drone since it's so solid.

Clean restore/build! I remember seeing your car at Torc a couple years back. Thanks for listing those Superpro part numbers. I definitely need to do the same suspension mods in the future.

I don't see how it would be much different

Alltrac passed smog!

January 2019

Installed a Supra Turbo Fuel Pump
DENSO 9510014

Replaced O2 Sensor
DENSO 2344156

Replaced AC/Alternator Belt
BANDO 5PK1110

March 2020

Noticed my exhaust leak was caused to a failed flex pipe, Maybe that's the cause of the power loss under boost?

87630216_202353860860712_8785172900354195456_n.jpg


Decided to order Vibrant Performance TurboFlex 60810, going to get a friend to weld it for me, once i have time to take it off and bring it to him.

April 1st 2020

Found my oil leak is being caused by my distributor o-ring
not sure if I just wanna replace it with Toyota 90099-14090, or get the Distributor Seal Repair Kit from TwosRUs

https://twosrus.com/catalog/product_inf ... ucts_id=67

My cruise control would work intermittently, I'm thinking of unplugging and re-plugging the speed sensor, maybe its loose from when I replaced the speedo cable.

I need to look through all my vacuum lines, hopefully I can find the reason for the loss of power under load

I also need to get my AC Re-Charged with R12, Im saving this for last.

Nice find! On a few occasions, I've looked for a nice original upper timing cover but without any luck. I'm on my second clear cover, I actually just ordered it yesterday. . the first one seemed to disintegrate and break in areas.

April 15th, 2020
Pulled the flexpipe section from my exhaust off to get repaired

95935191_2633162680286525_4503879818151985152_n.jpg

(the flex pipe on the right is for my spare Apexi exhaust for my MR2 Turbo)

April 17/18th, 2020

Picked up the flexpipe section of my exhaust from my friend 17th and installed it 18th.

No more exhaust leak!!!

April 20th, 2020
Ordered the Distributor Seal Repair Kit from TwosRUs

https://twosrus.com/catalog/product_inf ... ucts_id=67

April 24th, 2020
Distributor Seal Repair Kit arrives

May 2nd, 2020
Rebuilt the distributor, I tried making a youtube video, but failed my camera stopped filming 3/4 of the way. Overall the process wasn't bad at all. If your distributor is leaking oil from the seep hole that's on the bottom of the distributor near the harness plug, you definitely need to reseal your distributor.

Tools required:
Vice
Hammer
8mm
#2 Phillips
1/4 extension, (to tap the old seal and bearing out)
socket the same size as the seal, (To press the seal in)
socket the same size as the bearing, (To press the bearing in)
something to push the pin out,
and something to slip the pin into, when using the vise as a press.

Hopefully that will be the last of my oil leaks!

So now I need to figure out why my cruise control sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, totally open to ideas of what to look at and for, also the car doesn't seem like 100% power is there, there is a power loss during boost still need to do what I previously told myself I would do.

AC will be last.

I'm curious about your AC system. Do you have an empty system? Only reason I ask is because I had working AC that might have had a slow leak at my condensor. I noticed now that whenever I click my AC button "ON" the light doesn't turn on anymore and compressor no longer turns on. Is that the situation with your AC or does yours still turn on even though your freon is empty?

Compressor won't turn on unless the system has a charge. There is an AC pressure switch located by the timing cover.

Normally you would pull a vacuum on the system before recharging it but you should check for leaks. Ive used a regular air compressor and soapy water in a spray bottle to track them down. Or you can do it the hard way with UV dye and a small charge on the system.

It also will not turn on if it's overcharged. . . that's a possibility (in case it was filled without paying attention to the gauge).

I'm not particularly a fan of a black RC, as far as color goes, but man yours looks bad-ass!
