how's the 7mgte been for you reliability wise?

I've had a couple friends who had that and the 7mge in Cressidas and Supras and have always had issues with the head-block seal mostly resulting in oil weeping out the side of the block.

its been pretty good. I had an issue with the air flow meter, but that was caused out of my own ignorence. the only other issue i had was that three of the coil packs fried all at the same time one day.... really strange. luckily i had a spare set, replaced them and been fine since then. Now i have a new issue though, its sputtering, backfiring and has a general loss of power in low rpms. Im tinking i have water in my fuel or the timing is screwed up somehow, not sure. i have to tear into the front of the engine to replace the front main seal so i will double check timing and all that shit then. othe than that front main suddenly blowing out, it has never really leaked any oil

Alright guys, its been quite a while since an update so here it is. Since our event in july I have done some work to it. No cool fab stuff, mostly maintainence, but its gotta get done too!

I had to take apart the front of the engine to replace the front main seal, so while it was apart i just replaced all the seals. cams, front main, oil pump seal, and valve covers. while it was all apart I got my new TG full hydro "TC" style steering pump installed too. Also cleaned up the engine and painted the valve covers black.

The 4runner was also running pretty shitty so I decided to check if the timing was right. somehow it was off by about 20 degrees. idk how that happened but i got it adjusted right and now it runs better than ever! it frickin rips when the turbo spools up at about 3000 rpm. I need to get some video of it rippin across some open trail. We went wheelin today and the steering pump made a huge difference. Deffinately worth the money spent on it

I really like where the power steering pump is located! On my 2RZ its on the drivers side of the head which means my reservoir has to be a bit higher for the gravity feed to work. Nice job, lets see some video of this thing rippin!
