No problem. That's totally fine man. It's your car so do as you please . I used to own a few 80's Mitsubishi Cordia GSR's (turbos) and they had no BOV from factory, so I agree that they're not absolutely necessary, but that was only a 1800cc SOHC 12v, so in regards to the 3S-GTE I'd say that Toyota wouldn't have put a factory BOV on for no reason, but as long as you're happy with not running one that's all that mattersThanks for the help....BUT.... i really dont wanna get into an argument over cativation. I like flutter......... I dont drive the car that often, surge is when the turbo is boosting above wastgate limit, For years we had no blow off valves on turbos, and i have NEVER heard of a turbo exploding even with guys boosting the hell out of the turbo and thrashing it day in day out.
My point is, i want to enjoy the car, not make it last so the next guy who buys it can enjoy it. Please, i do not mean to be offensive in any way, i just want to enjoy a car for once, i am usually that guy who is always way too careful and have had 5 awesome cars that i regret not doing certain things to.
With that in mind my friend, what do you know about getting a 2.5inch turbo back exhaust and tuning the computer?
i'll try and get onto those pics later this weekend.
Cheers and thanks heaps again for the help...... it was frustrating to do the job, but i love the results.
As for the exhaust, my brother installed a 3" exhaust on his last week (from the turbo back). He's going to get a couple of bigger resonators put in and a better muffler as it's quite loud, but it freed up a bit of performance. I wouldn't bother trying to tune the ECU, unless you go for a piggy back system or a standalone aftermarket ECU. The standard ECU will handle any minor mods that you through at it just fine :thumbsup:
