Re: Opinions on Sr5 20v swaps vs GTS 20v swaps and conversions and everything else

I do admit, I should have just rebuilt my current Beams swap when it was still stock motor. But I was dumb and got starry-eyed by the Beams swap and took a bite that I wasn't ready yet. Mainly with time. It sucks being an adult. My current daily 86 will likely either be rebuilt or 20v swapped though...

Re: Another 87 Gt-S Daily Coupe

It is an authentic GTS that I got from Texas. I haven't had much time for building this since a majority of my time gets sucked up between work, school and the Beams build. So ive only done small things like oil changes and I'll be rebuilding the shifter soon as well.

Another 87 Gt-S Daily Coupe

Well, after a lot of working, school and moving 3 times, I have finally bought another AE86. This one will be my daily driver as it is overly stock. Here are some pics, more to come! I don't have many plans but to drive it. The previous owner sent a laundry list of what he has done to the car. Repla...

im actually not 100% sure however, most people order the entire SS kit once one fails. May be your bes bet to knock it out all at the same time.

Re: Curtis' 87 Resto Mod... BEAMS update 8/30

So after a few days of messing around with it, I was able to crank it, but my cam was off by a tooth. It essentially blew a flame out of the intake! So I was able reset it and bang! it fired up with no problems. Of course it was insanely loud due to it having open headers. Also, it sprung a leak due...

per Jondee86
GTS driveshaft + GTS rear axle = good
GTS driveshaft + SR5 rear axle = bad (driveshaft too short)
SR5 driveshaft + SR5 rear axle = good
SR5 driveshaft + GTS rear axle = bad (driveshaft too long)
