Which was the exact kit you got from CX Racing?

This one looks close, but doesnt look like the right amount of piping.

Here is the one that I used:

Good News today the car is now running. We are still fixing minor issues and should be tuning it shortly.

Congrats!!! Wish my project was that far along. I'm still waiting on funds for my turbo outlet pipe, down pipe, and intercooler piping

It has taken alot to get it here. Was a relief to hear it start. More videos to come once we have transmission fluid in it tomorrow and can tune it some more now that it is running.

Well we have been fighting this IACV for couple days now. I am going to call AEM to find out what we might be doing. We have wired it up how it says and it still wont work correctly. IF it is not on the car we can make the valve open and close but once connected in car the thing tries to move and it wont.

Anyone have ideas on this?

Unfortunately , I can't be of help. I was just going to use my stock IS harness, ECU and a piggyback because I'm not shooting for that much power.

Which AEM Standalone did you get and where did u get it from. Also how well does the AEM work with VVTI and the whole MAF situation? I’m currently swapping a Jzx100 1jzgte vvti into my car and just need some info.

I am running a 30-6050 that has been modified to work. We are starting to tune today so not much knowledge on the VVTi. I am running AEM map sensor and GM IAT sensor.

Only thing i am keeping maf for is gas stuff.

Well some updates today. Well the MPG on the speedo area doesn't work once driving it pegs 80. And i am assuming the gas tank is not syphoning from the other side of tank for some reason which is messing up the gas gauge.

I went ahead and welded a 2.5inch downpipe out next to passenger side door. Figured would make it a little quieter than just the elbow on the turbo and seems like it is 2x as loud.

Sent 3 datalogs off to Fasking Performance today just waiting for the new map to get closer to being done.

Can't get the front bumper on still because of the CX Racing intercooler kit. I swear I will not buy another thing from them. This seems to not fit with the bumper like there "PHOTOS" show. They show just needing to notch the bottom for the 2 couplers and the pipes are hitting the back side of the freaking bumper.

Well the car is completely tuned but going to get retuned shortly. I have installed the new Tomei turbo. I am pretty sure the tuning problems we have had is because the battery is in the trunk and i didnt run a ground wire to the front of the car. We have had bad ignition problems and very weak coils and i think this is why.

Here are some updated pictures.
