My 7M is running a Tial 44mm ext. wastegate. yours should be a good size for the engine. I would have took it back and yelled at Anthony to put the wastegate on properly

My turbo currently has a .68 ar undivided rear housing. I bought a replacement .81 at divided housing to accommodate the QSV. I think it will be what really changes up the feel of the big single over the snappy tiny CT26. I really miss that quick spool stock has.

I'm going to have to keep an eye on the bolts for the WG as they were not very tight. When I reinstall I'm going to include lock washers, hopefully that helps. A V-Band connection to the exhaust manifold would probably have been better, oh well.

I though of a potential solution to the WG bolts loosening and falling out. I'm going to try some Toyota FIPG on the WG bolts. That stuff is good for 480 degrees which is higher temperature than loctite.

I'm about to buy a lightweight flywheel for the first time. I've always been very interested in getting one since I owned my first supra, however I've never had my transmission off or had the cash to do it previously. I did a bit of research that I can share.

Certain engine crankshaft assemblies are balance in one of two ways, External Balance, or Internal Balance. The externally balanced systems require the crankshaft to be balanced with the flywheel whereas the internally balanced system does not require the flywheel to be balanced along with the crankshaft. The internally balanced engine system does not care what weight the flywheel is as long as the flywheel is balanced. It just so happens that the 1JZGTE (and probably the 7M and 2J) are internally balanced.

Knowing this gave me the confidence to go through with this upgrade. The flywheel isn't actually that much different in weight, the difference between the driftmotion one and the stock 1J flywheel is only 7.5lbs.

A couple pictures of my old stock disc that I removed recently. Worn pretty good!

New clutch and pressure plate. The clutch is a stock disc and the pressure plate is an Action Clutch 2800lb pressure plate which should be good for 450HP or so. This setup will drive great on the street but also hold the extra power when I want to pin it.

Huge shout out to Ryan (Funkycheese) for this awesome transmission rebuild! Look at this beauty! Can't wait to install and for the damn snow to stop so I can get her on the road.

Make sure you grease the input shaft splines where the friction disc slides, as I cleaned all the old grease out and you don't want it to stick. Also grease the driveshaft yoke before you install it into the tailshaft housing so the seal doesn't get a dry start.

So pretty. Well done Ryan

Going back to your comments on the light weight flywheel. They have great advantages. On my old car I noticed the rpms would climb noticeably faster when free revved.

The only downside was the combo of the lightweight flywheel and more aggressive clutch seemed to cause chattering when driving around town. Seemed like you had to be more aggressive with the throttle and clutch to stop it from chattering so it wasn't the best for daily driving (but I was like 19 at the time, that was enough reason to aggressively take off from every red light haha)

That said it has a lot to do with the clutch choice too so I hope yours is a little more well mannered.

Hey Franco,
I’m still waiting for my FW to arrive, which is holding up my reinstallation. I’ve been wanting to try a LWFW since the 90’s when I owned my first supra. I’m hoping it is fun to drive with. I’ve heard the same thing you mentioned. A six puck disc can be quite annoying with LWFW. It accentuates the chatter is what I’ve heard. Did you have a 6 puck? My stock disc should make it relatively OEM like I’m hoping. We will find out soon. I also got the DM short shifter which should help to hit gears faster and keep revs from falling off too fast due to LWFW.

I’m fixing up a few other things I noticed were a bit screwy like my wastegate which had bolts missing, and was leaking through the diaphragm. I’m hoping that it helps get the car spooling a bit sooner.
