IDI Engine / Re: AAZ Turbo Upgrade

The k24 came with a rectangle flange on the vw diesel as well. I'd just track down a rectangular manifold, they usually got for like $50.

k make sure you get a slave cylinder from a 3.4l as well. The 3.0 slave doesn't have enough throw for the 3.4 flywheel. or too much I don't remember exactly but it wont work properly.

Yes it does. You want a starter from the 3.4l Tacoma/4runner and the clutch from one of those as well. I have a petroworks 2 3.4l clutch if you want it pretty cheap. Its used but has a ton of material left on it. I got my kit new 2nd hand from ebay. Before it arrived I asked jeff at acme what clutch and starter I needed. Turns out the one I got was from an older model and used the 3.0l flywheel so I had to buy a different clutch. pm me here or facebook if you want it.

Did you get the proper drop (passenger or drivers side) r150f for your front axle?

Exhaust leak before the turbo? Maybe the wastegate isnt seating properly? Something is definitely wrong. Try turning the fuel up more. If it doesnt help id pull the turbo and do the gaskets and inspect the waste gate

Acme makes a kit for the v6 trans, I'm not sure why they don't list it on their website. Contact Jeff and he will set you up.

You can either buy a kit for the w56 and use a r151f bell housing which would let you bolt on a r150f transmission or just buy the r150f kit. The r151f came on the 22re turbo and is super rare and very expensive. Its basically an r150f with slightly different gear ratios and the special bell housing. keep in mind the older r150f's use a passenger side drop t case for the driveshaft and the newer r150f's use a drivers side drop. Make sure you buy the correct one for your front end. also 4.88's might be a bit small for 33's and a tdi. 4.56 or 4.33 might be better but that's something you don't need to worry about until its on the road and see how it drives.

Something to consider, the Toyota transmission doesn't have anyway to be used to find tdc for setting the timing on your engine. My plan to address this is.  The adapter plate covers 3/4 of the transmission, there is a small plate that bolts onto the bottom of the bell housing to keep mud and dirt from the clutch and flywheel. I plan to bolt the plate onto the transmission and then drill 2 holes through the plate into the tranny and install dowel pins to keep alignment. I then plan to cut an opening with an arrow in the plate and then mark the back of the flywheel at tdc, then make a small cover for the hole. I'm not sure if this would work with ifs, but with my sas its easy to see the back of the flywheel.

Do a little more research on the w56. Depending how much power you might run into issues. W56 was made for a 137ft-lbs motor. Putting 250-300ft-lbs from a built mtdi is going to be hard on it. Supposedly the r150f is twice as strong as the w56. You might run into issues and you might not. The reason i went r150f is the peace of mind knowing the tranny can handle the power with ease, plus r150fs are a lot easier to find around here then w56's. If i went w56 and had problems the cost of a new adapter plate is unappealing.

W56 has a stronger t case and the ability to run dual t cases but the tranny is weaker
R150f stronger internals but weaker t case. Can run a w56 t case with a $300 adapter plate and go dual t cases if you desire. Its a cheaper upgrade then a new adapter plate to go r150f if you have issues. Although with 33" tires i doubt youll need dual cases.

mTDI Mechanical TDI Conversions / rover 200/300tdi pump potential?
« on: April 26, 2018, 04:34:53 pm »
hey guys. I have an aaz in my Tacoma with a he220wg. Been kind of playing with the idea of going mtdi for more power and better efficiency. Was just curious what kind of power you can get from an alh or ahu with a rover pump without major pump mods? I've searched around google but havn't really been able to find any concrete answers. Looking to get the most power without sacrificing reliability. How much can these motors handle usually? I don't mind investing in arp hardware where necessary but I don't plan on building a full on racing motor with stronger rods and pistons and block girdle... Is there any benefit to ahu or alh over one another in regards to performance or reliability?

I figure my aaz is good for about 150-175hp, if I could get 250hp reliably that would be amazing!

Play with the gear calculators. 4.88 would probably get you pretty close.

Think the gear calculator put me around 2500rpm for 60mph on 35" tires in 5th gear.

If you are going for a performance build do not use a w56 transmission. I dont think they are strong enough to handle much more then 200ft-lbs

What do you want to know? Mine has an sas, not sure how easy it would be to make fit with the ifs. Im aiming for about 150-175hp with my aaz. If i was you i would go with a he221wg turbo, mtdi with a r150f tranny. Not too sure what gearing you woulf want in your diffs. Im going 5.29 but the idi has a completely different power band. There's tons of room in the engine bay though which is nice. Keep in mind if you go sas you would want a passenger side drop t case from a 3.0l.

IDI Engine / Holset choice?
« on: April 09, 2018, 03:21:37 pm »
Hey guys.
Got a aaz I recently rebuilt with arp head and main studs with a giles pump and a he211w turbo. I put maybe 50km on the build before pulling the motor for a different vehicle. The motor sat in my friends garage a few months and somehow one of the compressor blades managed to break (think it was his 3 year old trying to "fix it" with a screw driver or something).

I got the turbo super cheap 2nd hand off of ebay and i cant for the life of me find a new compressor wheel or even a rebuild kit for it. The only company i found that sells them has a 10 order minimum and are chinese aftermarket (eww). I didnt have much experience playing with it but i was boosting about 27psi without an intercooler and egt never got very high (think my pump needs a retune, also got it 2nd hand). Thinking of just biting the bullet and buying a new turbo. Would you guys suggest getting another he211w and swapping the modified housing (for clocking) or would the he221w be better suited for the 1.9l? The motor is going in a tacoma so im thinking the smaller he211w is probably my best bet for quicker spooling offroad? Modifying the waste gate on the he221w would be more work as well...

Contact alcaid on the forum. Hes usually the guy that people get them from. Its not bolt on though. Itll take some work to make it fit. Do some research. There's a sticky i made at the top of the page that has a lot of the information youll need to mount one.
