    Here is the progression of my 1mz with minor modifications.

    This is comparing:
    Green- 1mz-Intake, Headers, Exhaust
    Blue- 1mz-Intake, Headers, Exhaust, 2mz/3mz cams
    Red- 1mz-Intake, Headers, Exhaust, 2mz/3mz cams/ 3mz mani/ bored TB

    The intake manifold/TB upgrade did make a slight increase. But not as noticeable as the cam upgrade. The Cams made the engine feel totally different.

    Kinda like going from Bro to Bruh status

    Did some Hella Rewiring to my Engine harness. The first time it was messy and quite frankly just done to be functional to get the car started. I deloomed it all and re did most of it. Also used a large Mazda quick disconnect connector for the body wires. Hella cooh.
