Lol thanks! Remember this thing has a 3.5" lift! And it's a RAV4! (With a bed and a kitchen in the back) lol. I get that you're joking, but I'll digress. I'm still learning to "Drive" but from the video, and the sound of the engine, its easy to forget this is a top heavy Rav, and not a Porsche! I've never had a fast car in my life, so I am learning, in a Rav4, go figure! It is foreign to accerate through corners, but its true, there is more control in low gear, pulling through corners, than high gear braking.You are a little late in accelerating before the curves.
I have an angle grinder that spins at 10,000RPM the thought that there are parts in this engine that spin almost that fast is un ****ing believable! It takes 5W-20 Oil, seems thin. now I know why! I run 94 Octane in it, as the Gen4 ECU is actually tuned to 105 Octane (Japan) I ran that once. It was about 15% more horsepower, I also had no power steering pump attached to the engine at the time, and I have an AC Delete Kit. All I can say is that the 94 is enough, what will happen when I put my spare 3S-GTE in here after it's forged and boosted to 20lbs is beyond comprehension, I reckon that a gen 4 with forged rods, pistons, 3 angle valve job, port and polish with 20lbs boost will put out a conservative 450-500HP. Too much for the Rav's rear Diff in my opinion.Sounds like only 8500 rpm to me, are you sure?
YES, I did, and I got flamed big time, and when I defended myself against their immaturity I was subsequently banned from r/Toyota. Lol. I closed my account, I dont need that Drama. I'll lurk instead.Did you post that somewhere on Reddit? Which they had a better RAV presence there.
NEVER be Jealous, I would watch "3s-GTE Porn" videos online every day for almost six years before I finally saw that engine in person.And most jealous over the swap. Amazing job. : )
I hear you. I did one of the first (if not first) documented '88-'89 MR2 SC motor swap in to an '85-'89 MR2 NA body. The commonality of vehicle design for that generation was amazing. Helped with an MR2 NA to pre AE86, and turning the motor was a pain. So I hear ya...!As someone said to me when I was nervous about pulling an engine once, "they're just nuts and bolts, get turnin' em'"!
what the hell, that's ridiculous. Sorry to hear it. It's not like there's millions of interesting posts on /r/toyota. Most of it is "Hey, I bought a brand new Camry, upvotes please." That was probably the best content they've had in a month.YES, I did, and I got flamed big time, and when I defended myself against their immaturity I was subsequently banned from r/Toyota. Lol. I closed my account, I dont need that Drama. I'll lurk instead.
You, I like you.AWESOME! One of the most coolest transformation I've ever seen in this forum.
I've read the first paragraph, and my heart sank! I have a complete, and discrete under chassis 4" ABS Plumbing pipe and 12v pump based outdoor Shower, and onboard water dispensing, and rear door sink system designed, and planned for completion later on this winter! My Brand new radiators un-used on-board trans cooler will heat the shower and coffe/tea water as I drive!
