Unfortunately, trying to spool a big ‘ol turbo with an automatic trans is a big ‘ol problem.
This was when we added a new option to our GT30/35 turbo kit, a GT2871RS. This allowed for early spool, but good power. The special V-band turbine housing we use allows for the 2871RS, the GT30R and the GT35R to be interchangable within our family of Manifold/Downpipe combinations. We do have a few race teams out there using this same combination as well.
OK, so we have a race-built stroker motor, a turbo to push it and a converter that will let it spool. Now we just need to control everything. As any auto-trans Celica guy knows, there is no PowerFC solution for this application. And this is no place for a piggyback controller. So we went to work and developed a custom AEM EMS system for the Celica.
Joe was the first to receive the new Billet fuel rail kit with the MWR Billet Fuel Rail and FPR Kit
An APEXi AVC-R boost controller was utilized for accurate boost control.
