Part 10 : Firing up the 3S-GE!
It has been awhile since the last update.
Let start up with the customer who visited our shop with his ITB S2000.
The re-wiring the chassis harness to accept 3S-GE was PITA!!
The problem was I was not be able to get the chassis wiring of SXE10(JDM Altezza).
The SXE10 service manual is only avail in Japanese and it IS very hard to get.
After spending DAYS and DAYS with 3S-GE Engine wiring diagram and 1F-GE Engine & Chassis wiring diagram, I finally figured out everything.
We did had issue with engine stalling, TRC and etc but very glad that everything worked out after many trial.
Altezza ECU does NOT support OBD, but it DOES uses VSC which IS200/300 only sports traditional traction control(TRC).
So we had to disable ETCS(Toyota's electrical throttle body), and use direct cable link to control throttle body.
Used stock S2000 resonator to use on the rear muffler. Now welding time for the exhaust!
We put Personal shift knob and boots.
Installed power steering cooler.
We used Recaro Pole Position for front seats, Willans 6-pt harness, Challenge FULL-Aluminium coilovers with Hyperco springs(800lb/550lb)
Also had to cut the transmission tunnel little wider since 6-SP manual transmission didn't fit the opening.
Seats and harness are installed
Now waiting for the wheels.
Enkei RPF1 17x9 ET35, have arrived!
The white car will be running first race day with stock engine(1G-FE, 155hp) with 4-sp auto since we spent too much time with the grey car.
ECU problems and power steering pressure issue took too long to fix.
Since the driver of the white is the beginner, we thought it would not be a bad idea to run the track with under powered engine for his first race day.
But we still installed the suspension and wheels.
Excuse the front fender since it will be re-done by bodyshop once it is all done.RPF1 17x9 ET35 with 255/40/17 all around!!
Using Hankook RS-3 tires due to race regulation.
