That looks great! That is the bigger blower right? Will the intake piping be made to work with the stock AFM for those people who have stock electronics?

How in the world does it connect to the intercooler? It looks like it goes right by the inlet in the pictures.

Yes, this is the bigger blower. All piping in the pics are made to fit with stock 4agze everything :p

Rallyeng, look at the last engine bay pic in my last post. You can slightly see the pipe connecting to the intercooler.



Here are some pics of the Bigger and smaller blower.

Wow... That neck to the intercooler looks wicked. :p
I'd think that's got to obstruct flow some, but that's not a problem?
Damn you make me want to rip out the hicomp this weekend, instead of doing the HG job... Oh well, maybe I'll have money someday. ;)

Runs Very strong and since its a 7agze the torque on low boost is incredible. I will have a dyno soon to come, but do not expect anything over 200whp as I will not turn the boost up on the 7agze as the prototype just yet.


All piping is mandrel bend and I would say that going from 2.5 to 2 inch is not optimum. Afm adapter to the TB is not optimum either. However with that said these are kinks that will not be so critical at low boost application. The restrictions if you up the boost will not be as significant as the stock s/c12 configuration. Please think of this kit as the stock blower for the 4agze in which you have room to modify and make more efficient. What you will not have to worry about is the inlet and outlet design and tb. These peices are made to flow 300+ rwhp.


Dave, you might need not be able to fit your strut bar.

I don't know if this has been tried, but it has been discussed. I have read that the afm from the 5mg, Supra/Cressida, was plug and play as it supposedly has the same values as the 4age. Might be a simple fix for the afm flow issues. Probably won't work as it seems to good to be true, but you never know.

Would not suprise me at all if it did work as Toyota has always been somewhat interchangeable with various parts. Again, there is nothing to worry about when we are talking 200whp and below. I think if you want to get to 225- 275 then you really need to either ditch the afm or upgrade to a bigger one because the tb on our setup is Massive :smile:

Tonight I did the Twinscrew Tour for the first time (sad but true... I am still catching up on my reading).

Flipping awesome work.
It brings me back to my days of fitting my SC14 !! And then stomps on them.
The machining looks like a million dollars... cash... untaxed.

Just a question for some of those that may want to try, is there room to use the Spearco MKI IC upgrade (bolt-on) that goes right there in the OEM position? For anyone not going to an A2W setup, or a trunkmount A2A, the Spearco kit (although hard to find) is the next best bolt-on thing to go beyond the 200 whp mark and fight the heatsoak from the engine bay.

Personally I would worry about the IC upgrade before the AFM.

Ron, keep it up, this is a breakthrough for the 4agze! (especially regarding reliability, labor, bang for the trouble)... do you have an update on the approx cost?

I have left the 4agze realm, but my spirit lingers hither still... :p

Lovely little 1.5 AW you have there!
Your mind set seems to be simular to mine!

Thanks for the kind words Gandalf.
I am only a fan of A2W intercoolers for the Aw11. In fact, it is the cheaper more efficient route to go. I would agree with you on intercooler upgrade before afm for certain.

Smaller blower is .87L Twinscrew and the bigger is a 1.33L Twinscrew. I will be better informed on pricing once we make the bracket out of Billet with slight revisions.

Thanks
Ron

crack on! :p

If the kit is anywhere around $2000, you can count on my order, no questions. :thumbup
