    ITB Build - http://omgpham.com/itb-build

    So over the holidays I put some money down on a few parts for the car, will make for some great New Years Resolutions =)

    Found a brand new ITB kit "second hand" off a forum, was able to get it at a very good price so I'm going to try do a budget build. Kit came with the Garage Star/Techno Toy Tuning (T3) adapter plate (black), Toyota AE101 throttle bodies, fuel rail mount, velocity stacks (black), air filters, vacuum block, Toyota TPS and various gaskets.

    I've also got myself a Megasquirt DIYPNP ECU for tuning purposes, will assemble this ASAP and get running with the car as is. Will need other parts too like a new fuel rail, fuel pressure regulator, wideband O2 sensor and synchrometer to sync the throttle bodies.

    ITBs will improve engine response, emit evil noises from the engine bay as well as a small jump in power. My initial goal is to have fun building/tuning the engine, but long term is to gain more power with cams, head port/polish (and maybe other expensive stuff!).

    Some good info here:

    What it'll roughly look like when done.



    Now some pretty photos of the ITB kit I bought!

    mmmmmm ITB adapter plates.

    Was bored so I bought some yellow tint and applied it to my turn signal lights. Some photos taken with my phone.

    MegaSquirt DIYPNP ECU - http://omgpham.com/megasquirt-diypnp-ecu

    Ordered my ECU from DIYAutoTune.com last week and it arrived today, will start building it ASAP and get it running on the stock engine. Should be able to get some practise tuning the ECU before I get time to install the ITB setup.

    The DIYPNP ECU is based on the MegaSquirt Micro Module V2.2, doesn't have as many features as the MS3 but still provides a lot of tuneability and options. Definitely more then enough for a ITB intake setup.

    Some quick photos before I start assembling.



    Unboxing my new toy =)

    Side Skirt Install - http://omgpham.com/side-skirt-install

    I decided to add some products to sell on my blog, first being the Side Skirt Diffusers. The shipment arrived this morning and I installed them right away =)

    Installation was a breeze and only requires the factory bolts as well as some self tapping screws. I took as many photos as I could below, but it's lacking because I was so excited....


    Didn't take me long... FedEx guy was still there when I opened the boxes!


    Jacked her up and removing the factory bolts.



    Installation completed and looking haaaawt!

    I'm guessing they're under 1kg each.
