Sure wish I could build up our engines like yours, but having to deal with living in an enhanced Smog Check county, its just not worth it. Both my TE51's have the factory emissions intact and functional, and haven't failed the smog test EVER! (if that's any condolence.....HA!)
its sweet that your are so bone stock to do smog in your county (dam that must suck), the first few years i made her pass ( every other year), then there was the straight out engine swaps( had a smog ready engine on the floor waiting) then bought lost of smog for years after. when that ran out, i kept running till they told me they would tow it next time. that was a '09 ticket. funny (but not so funny),,, i went to court on that very ticket today. lol but really, my engines dont have much special, other then my hand porting and balancing, and just building a tight job like it should be, the rest is just smoke and mirrors, (or my smoke and polishing), if i put the smog parts back on, not to much would change. but the last 2 engines got a little out of hand for just clean rebuilds . I also work with less then any funds. so i have no fancy parts. i find oem parts at the yards from other toyota that are better then TE oem parts.
Welcome all. Please take a monent and say some thing. what would make this a better site?
