Have seen that in a friends car running 24psi, although was running crapping JDM hypereutectic pistons.

What EFI was he running? Tuned by???

I read a quote years ago by one of the early guys pushing 700-800 HP on a Supra with stock internals... They said that proper fuel/spark control was the secret to everything. Sounded like spending the time to get the maps JUST RIGHT was worth it's weight in gold.

I had a '91 MR2 Turbo running 18.5 PSI and making 290 HP and torque at the rear wheels. Fun little car! Had the WOT maps tuned on a dyno, and I spent a lot of time tuning the mid-range maps myself. This was an an AEM standalone.

No idea? This was back in Perth, Australia. Cars tend to get tuned for 30+ degree average temps rather than negative temps. I think he said it spiked hard on a cold (australian standard cold, single digits) morning when he was overtaking someone on the freeway. The hypereutectic pistons aren't good in Australia.

Ah fair enough, yeah I didn't think hypereutectics were that good for boost anyway. I thought just straight forged alloys were better. Anyhoo, rods through blocks are ungood!

I'm planning on an engine swap for my 1st Gen Celica at the moment. Debating between the 1JZ-GTE, 7M-GTE or a 1UZ-FE with manual trans bellhousing from Aus. Bloody expensive bellhousing, but the trans and engine are cheaper than the other options!

Today I hate bizarre food cravings. I *always* crave either sushi or fries after a hard work out, and it's driving me up the wall. It's to the point where I will, on occasion, go get food in my PJ's at 11 at night, which I try to avoid at all costs. Short of not working out, I don't know how to stop or, or what to do.

You probably need to drink more water more than anything. Food cravings are sometimes a result of being slightly addicted to preservatives. You should try homemade infused waters.

Hmmm. Good call. I'll give that a shot.

How's your website stuff coming along?

It's doing its thing. If I probably stopped offending kids with huge chips on their shoulders I could get what I need done.

I believe that to an absolute certainty!!! I'll go further and say I believe food companies deliberately put additives in foods that are in fact highly addictive and designed specifically to create those almost obsessive cravings!

I wish you success in breaking that cycle! It can be extremely hard, I know!!

I was wondering if that might have been what was going on. You seemed to be having an excessive amount of website problems & trouble in recent months. That sucks!

Any chance of tracking down and proving who the little shitstain is to file criminal charges??
