Talking Turbo 5vz Tacoma at the Drag Strip! ::video::

https://youtu.be/X4xoV5B5cy0

1000' foot track

Nevermind the horrible staging and launching- ebraking, brake boosting, etc, this thing is stupid to launch. Brakes/tires won't hold more than 3lb boost off the line, but if I don't brake boost, boost doesn't come on til after 60'. I need a 2step, better rear brakes, drag slicks, or a trans brake :-)

Broke out of the 11.50 index class in the first round by .0451, but ran a best ET of the night 11.45 @ 91mph. I spent most of the night in the test and tune lanes, logging data and trying to smooth out that AFR graph.

Nice! You have a build thread on this? Interested to see what you have done.

Sorry, don't really have a build thread for it. I will be making a walkaround video. Also will be visiting the local dynojet soon so subscribe to my YouTube channel!

Curious what you have in your engine. Stock internals? What tuner are you using? IIRC, you have meth injectors, correct?

I'm guessing you're on mobile because it's in my signature. Totally stock engine 251k miles. I've popped 3 motors now all bent or broken connecting rods when Methanol injection went screwy in boost. Now I'm using 550 injectors and AEM F/IC 6. I don't even have my meth reinstalled yet. Tuning at 11.5afr 93 octane removing 1 degree of timing at 8+Lb boost.

Will soon be adding aem fuel pump, Methanol kit(-20 washer fluid), and transgo valve body kit before working on a 15lb tune. Like to see 350+whp

Ahh, didn't see that. Damn, 3 engines!


Btw, your vid was blocked at work and I just saw it for the first time tonight; your trans is shifting bad into 2nd gear (couldn't hear the other gears). Shift kit should help keep you from adding a trans to your kill list

You got that engine fixed fast and put an AEM FIC in quick too. It's making some good et's! My brain works in 1/4 mile times. The consensus on a quick Google search says 1000' * 1.2 = 1/4 mile or at least close. You should be in the high 13's in a 1/4 mile. Thats quick. You are cutting great 1.7x 60's too. Nice runs. I'm definitely subscribing to your youtube!
