Figured out why my passenger side headlight motor kicked the bucket!

Well, got the turbo kit installed about a month ago however I've run into some odd running issues. I may have had these issues prior to going single, however I can now diagnose things better now that I have an AFR gauge. Car ran great for first week, but then started to get some crazy AFR readings (really rich or really really lean at idle). If I unplug my O2 sensor and just run off the ECU settings, the car runs fantastic! Car is at the shop getting that diagnosed. Hopefully it's just a wiring thing for my O2 sensor.

Other than that, looking forward to driving the car more regularly. One piece of advice I can give to anyone else looking to go single turbo...unless you can do most of the custom work yourself, you're probably better off to pay more (maybe even double) for parts that are dedicated to your model car. I'm happy with the work that was done on my car, but wish I bought a fitted intercooler and piping.

EDIT: One thing I learned from all this is that if you are getting weird AFRs and you're still on the stock ECU, it's okay to unplug the O2 sensor. When the O2 sensor is unplugged, the car will run using the factory/ECU defined limits (rather than real time from the O2 Sensor). While running on the ECU, it will be rich at warm up, then after warming up, it will hover between 14-15 as it should. This was how we determined that the O2 sensor was the culprit, although not after I spent countless hours troubleshooting it myself.

I hear you. I saved money by buying used setups and ended up paying more in the end to replace trashed pieces, missing parts and reconditioning the setup. Cheating out rarely works unless your a wizard at modifications.

Congrats on getting the car out to drive. Good luck with getting the AFR stuff nailed down. Are you then running off of a wideband?

Having my car out for the first time in 3 years feels great, too!

Car is driving great. The AFR issues were caused from the heat melting the wires to my O2 sensor. They had to extend the wiring and used a different 3 wire O2 sensor and the wires melted together. Once that was fixed it starting running well again.

That's awesome you have your car out Dan. I know that feeling.

What are people using for A-pillar gauge pods these days, Lotek still? Do they fit better than they used to? I'm considering buying the two gauge A-pillar pod for my car, mostly due to the fact I can't seem to find anything that mounts on the dash area that looks good or is functional.

When looking at the Lotek ones, they have two grey options, Dark and Medium grey. I thought all of the Supra's with a grey interior had the same color grey? If that's the case, which one should I get if I were to buy the Lotek one, medium would be my guess?

thanks!

Retrospec (they are on facebook) seems to make a good pillar pod (2 or 3) out of CF (both sides of the pillar too)

Not sure if it is a really bang-on fitment, but haven't heard any complaints yet.

Nice, I'll have to check them out. I really need to properly mount my Wideband and boost gauge. I was thinking of getting a third, but I think I'll just do two. I was going to mount under or above my radio using a DIN pocket, but it was nowhere near going to fit or work. the unit was way wider than my opening. Oh well!

1991 should be the shadow grey interior. 1990- would be the medium grey, so for the lo-tek pods, you're (very probably) looking for the dark grey.
