1gzfe v12 toyota with Storm scope and triggers.

Recommended Posts

I have concerns that I may have triggers with reversed polarity on my toyota  1gzfe build. I did not have cars pinout, made educated guesses concerning wiring of triggers, engine has 2 crank sensors and 2 cam sensors. . Car is started and runs, but timing seems off. I ran a scope capture, its attatched here. Can you tell from this if polarity is wrong? Thanks in advance

Polarity is correct and the waveform looks good.  I assume you are using 1JZ vvti triggermode?  Have you done the trigger calibration/base timing?

Thanks for the quick reply. I am using the 1jz settings. While I had it running, I was trying to set the base calibration, but the ecu will not unlock the offset value. I cant find any instructions on how to unlock these fields. I have tried clicking on the lock button, and right clicking on the offset, but it will not change the value. Storm rev 1.7. Pic attatched

Just double click the spanner beside set base timing, that will open a new window.  In there is where you adjust your offset.  A common gotcha is if you are manually typing in a new offset you need to hit the enter key to make it take effect.  The number will turn blue to indicate it has taken effect. I normally just use the pg up/pg down keys to adjust so I can do it with one hand on the timing light - you dont need to hit enter in this case.

Had to put in 40 degrees of advance , 245 offset now. Seems like an odd number. Still getting a random backfire...wondering if I need to go 360 down and input -115 as the offset? The help section mentioned this as an alternate..

If you are saying it doesn’t run at all and only backfires, then yes it is likely 360 out. However if you are saying it actually runs but backfires sometimes then you have some other problem.

It actually runs fairly well,  and backfires sporadically. Burnt up the o2 sensor, with raw fuel on startup settings so its waiting for new parts. Ive seen other people with 1 gz builds mention it was within 5 degrees or less.   Thank you again.

Engine is now running great, earlier issues were wiring related. I am running with vvti wired up, but not enabled. I am wondering if anyone else has set up vvti on one of these, and which settings to use. Thank you..

That doesnt mean anything to me without knowing what side of the road you drive on.  It may be clearer to use Lefthand/Righthand.

Note I dont work for Link, and its not Links job to set up your ECU.  Happy to help here on the forum in my own time when I have time however.

Sorry, if I misunderstood, or wasn't clear. Left hand drive. I understand it's not links job. I was looking for someone who had done the 1gz vvti settings. Frankly my first time setting up vvti, wanted to be sure I was on right path. Thank you.
