That's the plan. Wish I had a way to measure seat pressure. I can measure installed height and shim if need be.

Itís been a while since I have been on here. Well hereís whatís happening. To have a title of the 2jz slayer I have realized that a G54B is not keeping up with these 900+ hp 2jz cars around here.  So I am going a different route. I have three G54B  which Iím only going to sell 2 of them right now due to me wanting to beat phinkoís time (itís all love brother). I will still be a 4 banger and a 2.6. I will be using a engine that have a better performance part market out there.  So be on the look out for my part out 😔

After talking to Randy at EMS, I found out that a new head, assembled is around $700! On top of that a forged rotating assembly, rods, ect ect...I think I'm going to dump the g54b, and go with a 4g64. I'm going to the yard to inspect a 1991 Mighty Max tomorrow. Hopefully the block and rotating bits are in good shape!

It just seems to make more sense, in terms of my HP goal (500 atw), to go with a better flowing DOHC head and a engine with a more aftermarket.

OK I know this has been asked before, but, Big port or Small port? The small looks like the short side radius is much better, but the big will work better with a larger than stock turbo, no?

Update time!

I had the car running, I really did, honest. I even got 1/2 way around the block, when suddenly the car started heating up and I heard an odd water noise. Uhoh. I thought it was simply the seal between the timing cover and the block, you know the one that the water pump pushes the coolant through? So I replaced that, and lo and behold, milkshake returned. Then I pulled the head, and the headgasket looked great. wtf right? Well a little more investigation, some sort of sticky greenish oily stuff in the intake and I'm pretty sure the turbo oil/water seals failed.

Oh yeah and the head is cracked in at least 2 places right between the intake and exhaust valves. But hey the Jet valves looked great lol!

So It's time to get serious. I'm still putting the MSII together slowly. I'm often too tired after work for the sort of detail this requires and I DO NOT want to mess it up. But it's moving, I've got the Jim Stim 1/2 way done and am the point I can load the firmware into the MS.

I started making a manifold from 3/4 billet, and the I realized I can just cut the runners off the spare stocker I have, and use it as a template for the custom piece, yay!

So lastly, I guess I've got some questions for you more experienced guys/gals.

My goal is a legitimate 500 HP. Yes I know that's asking a lot. This isn't a 2jz...but anyway, I do want something fun. So here's the plan so far: Forged Arias pistons, E85 and custom rails for fuel, Use the Mighty Max dizzy and LS coils for ignition and injection timing, Rod/Main/Head Studs, .30 overbore (still stock 92 mm preliminary measurements), remove balance shafts (This is recommended against by Jack's Transmission who are big 4g63 guys, but this isn't  4g63 and I don't plan on 9k rpm), t3 manifold with appropriate turbo (to be determined), big intercooler with hard pipes to front facing manifold (shaved 1uz TB).

OK I think that's pretty reasonable plan so far, but I still want to know about these roller rockers I keep hearing about. I understand they'll work much better with a radical cam than a slipper type and the Mitsu cam runs out of breath around, what 5k rpm? I know I need an aftermarket cam, but I don't want to get some crap that's designed poorly. I also read that most roller rockers 1: don't work with a slipper cam, and 2: don't give proper valvetrain geometry on our rocker shafts. This cam thing is vexxing me, because it's a kind of a black art and most people don't want to share.

Thanks for any info!

Iím sure. I always said. I would rather hurt something that doesnít keep me stuck in the house. I had 2 knee surgeries and one back.  Hate being stuck in the house.
