Might be an interesting read for you, or anyone else running a centrifugal.
I'll check it out. Currently, the car stumbles a bit between shifts with heavy throttle. I think the compressor surge may be the cause. Without the IC, I had a lot less surge and I can't recall having any shifting issues at all.

I am still planning on keeping the current setup but trying it without the IC to see what happens.

Look at picture #15 on post 12. The area where the power distribution block is sitting is where it needs "modded". Like I said, it's a fairly significant amount of bashing that needs to be done.

Also, the fuse box needs to be MUCH furthur over than in that pic. The fuse box has been and still is one of my worst enemies though this whole thing.

The wires are not too short to turn the box and shove it over as much as possible. It's just a big PITA. It's really not a good thing to do to any fuse box. Ideally, it should be relocated. I don't know where to though. This would of course require extensive wiring.

I haven't really looked into it, but it may be possible to use a smaller fuse box. Aftermarket or OEM out of another Toyota. It may also be possible to custom make something. Even if it's just a small plastic box.

When u relocate the battery to the trunk. Make sure you solder the connection for good conductivity.

Hey guys,

I'm having a little drivability problem that started yesterday. I think the gasket I had made to block the EGR might have failed. Or I might have a vac/boost leak.

IfI manage to figure it out tonight, I'll make some more, longer driving vids on Sunday.
