Looking good. What cylinder sleeves did you go with?

Did you have TOYOTA build the engine, or are they just going to snap the bell housing bolts off installing it? I would/could never trust a dealer to do anything more than a reflash or a power window switch. I have had my truck to three different dealers 5 times for a driveline noise that neither shop could diag correctly. $40 later and new ujoints do the job a differential, transmission, and both wheel bearings should have done.

No need to call CLAYTON @ Toyota of anywhere...You have for sure 657hp now.

Its all about finding the right Toyota Tech to be honest with you. One of my great buddies is a Toyota Tech and he gives it to me straight every time i go in for service or for something wrong. He fixes it right and does it right the first time around. He built up his frs with all forged internals, and forced stupid amounts of boost down its throat right there in Toyota's shop all with very pleasing results. I wouldn't give every Toyota dealer a bad rep, they might have some very capable performance techs back there. Keyword might. Now on the contrary, there are some real shit heads working on our vehicles, needless to say i haven't had to deal with one of those working on my truck yet, but still. Just food for thought. :)

Well I have had to deal with one of those techs unfortunately, and that on top of the fact that they can not diag for shyt leads me to where I am in my dealership experiences. Had my diff replaced and the tech did absolutely nothing to clear the metal shavings from the axle housing. Metal particles in bearings of a brand new $2000 part=pissed. I dismantled the whole diff the next week and pressure washed the damned thing out because they would not do it and she is good as new.

On topic...What are you planning on using to tune it?

Which exact AEM stand alone are you using and how are you interfacing (connecting) it to the engine? I've seen a modified engine harness being done, I'm curious on your set up..
