Thanks. With the right financial motivationThat sounds amazing on the start up video! I’m not far from you here in the PNW. Want to drop by and do this to mine as well?
it started with some internet research on communicating with jdm ecu's and the protocols they use. Apparently, even though they have the same plug, they are not obd compliant. As the research contined, I found a guy who had found a way to get his import 2jz with vvti to work and I thought there is no reason why this wouldn't work also work for us.
So, I should preface this by saying that this will not make your car readable by emissions testers where it would otherwise fail, but gives you, the end user, the control. For $28 you can have this fully operational
Step 1: go out and buy an OBD2 Bluetooth adapter. In this case, the one I purchased was this one from Amazon the Bafx PIC18F2480 - http://www.amazon.com/BAFX-Products-PIC18F...=obd2+bluetooth
Step 2: Purchase the 5$ app "Torque Pro" from the google play market for Android. (For you apple guys, the App Store does not have this exact app on there so I am unsure if any of the steps after this are valid) Any android powered tablet or phone should work here.
Step 3: Inside of the app you can create car profiles for different vehicles (This app is incredible and is by far the most useful thing I've ever bought as an app because this app and the adapter can be used on ANY obd2 car) In the vehicle profile at the bottom of the profile page is a line that says Very Advanced ELM327. There is a line in that section to add text. The following text should be added to that line:
ATIB 96 \n ATIIA 13 \n ATSH8213F0 \n ATSP4 \n 0100
Once that is complete, hit SAVE and go back into the app. The app is now configured to see the JDM ecu's (that code changed the searching frequencies and some other protocol stuff in the app to be able to read the JDM ecu's)
With the app configured and your OBD 2 adapter plugged into the port on your car, you can now read all of you engine data with the the Torque app. Insert vehicle parameters to get HP and TQ estimations, Fuel economy, timing advancement, speed, the list goes on (really really nice app)
There is also a check engine light portion of this app where you can scan the ECU for codes so it becomes a scan tool as well.
Correct, the MAF is on the bottom, just left of the zip ties, and just upstream of the fresh air port for the PCV systemI'm assuming the 1UZ AFM is mounted to the bottom of the aluminum intake tube?
there are a bunch of pics in this post: Builds - Corax's 1UZ VVTi swapCan you post some more pictures of inner fender, firewall, and radiator clearence with something for scale? Maybe also from the outer fender (where the hood closes) to the valve covers?
to show how small it is:ATEMU - auto transmission emulator.
Eliminates particular limp modes usually occurring when installing manual transmission and retaining original Toyota ECU. Stable idle and maximum possible power delivery results. Without properly addressing the limp modes, ignition advance and vvti timing will be fully retarded, and throttle opening angle will be limited.
Operation confirmed with any 1UZ-FE VVTi, 2JZ-GE (late vvti ones), 3UZ-FE 2000-2003. More ECUs will be supported in future
Visual appearance and wiring diagram are subject to change due to being constantly improved. Printed version of latest manual is included with each device

That's some good looking workThanks Keith.
I'm planing to use a stock slave setup. I made my own conversation bellhousing and have been looking at the 3.4 5vz clutch since it's larger.
This isn't meant to be a thread jacking. If it feels like it I can remove this.
