Re: AE86 Best Suspension Setup

Just refreshed my setup with some changes. Converted to coilover up front with swift 3.5k main springs and 6k tenders. Custom 2.8k rear springs from ajps. Also added 10 mm spring spacer on LR only to help get rid the infamous 'lean'. (Ghetto corner balance haha.) Using standard long bilstein shocks...

Re: Help with EGR delete

Fwiw in cool/cold weather it should idle around 2-2.5k rpm on cold start, so thats good. (Fwiw, with iacv deleted idle is around 600 rpm on cold start... engine will stall unless throttle is manually raised until engine warms.) Definitely get that iacv working. Its so nice not having to hold the thr...

Re: Help with EGR delete

Are you using the charcoal canister? Where are the vacuum lines from it going? From what i can see with the vacuum lines it looks like it should run, and at least idle warm. When the engine starts cold what is the idle rpm? Also, fwiw on the throttle body barbs... Iirc the looped 2 are for egr, yell...

Re: Help with EGR delete

Top one is for egr and bottom one is for charcoal canister/evap.

Just leave them as is if not using the egr or evap systems. (Nothing will go in the engine, and nothing will come out through the openings from the broken hose barbs, aka nipples...fwiw.)

Re: Searching for interior parts for my AE86 (Burgundy)

Using the white clips that connect the wire to the lever is vital. They can only be installed one way though because there are divots the in the plastic wire sheeth that the clips hold onto. I was referring to the metal clips on the hvac housing and blower motor under the dash, basically where the o...

Re: Searching for interior parts for my AE86 (Burgundy)

Remove the cables. Use 3-in-1, wd40, etc, and work it between the metal wire and plastic that covers until plastic slides easy on the wire. When installin make sure the plastic wire covers are clipped in at the right points in relation to the flapper doors and hvac control levers on center console (...

Re: Need suspension advice! Figuring out what springs would go with Tokico Illumina shocks

My experience with the espelirs was dissapointing. *Disclaimer: i bought a used set so its possible they were worn out. Fwiw they werent cut and the condition of the appearance was fair.* Anyhoo, the drop ended up being about 1.8" (possibly more) from stock. The sprng rates were 3/2.8k f/r. A l...

Re: AE86 Best Suspension Setup

Exactly. Their original front 'coilovers' are oem ae86 strut casings that are shortened 40 mm and converted to accept coilover springs. (After a while they started adding a welded on spindle brace too.) Their new advanced front coilovers mirror all the dimensions as the original, but with ALL NEW PA...

Re: AE86 Best Suspension Setup

Imo, custom is always best. Its because the setup can be tailored for the car's intended use. As far as off the shelf coilovers go... on paper it sounds like fortune auto and shockworks are the best rounded. Both claim ae86 specific tuning. Shockworks even claims model specific road tuning, and has ...

Re: Bump steer after aw11 manual rack conversion

^exactly. Equal steering from center (lock-to-lock) when using an aw11 rack in an ae86 equates to different overall tie rod lengths (inner pivot to outer pivot) on each side, which causes the alignment/bump steer issues.

Re: Bump steer after aw11 manual rack conversion

Also reached out to quaife regarding their qsr kits for ae86 and aw11. Both kits use the same exact rack. Only the pinions differ. Both racks are 21.653" long, which is even shorter than an oem ae86 manual rack

Re: Bump steer after aw11 manual rack conversion

So an opportunity presented itself to measure an ae86 rack/housing and an aw11 rack/housing. The housing AND rack are different lengths when comparing the ae86, and aw11 parts. I used a measuring tape with the racks both installed on different cars, so the measurements aren't exactly precise, but an...

Re: T3 Lightweight Pulleys

Oem crank pulley does have rubber so there is prob some damper affect. This has been much debated and is prob negligible. Its down to the end user using a solid pulley. Other than that t3 uses and underdriven (larger) water pump pulley than stock, iirc. Good at the track but may not be ideal on stre...

Totta corolla is an asset to the community. What he said is why i wont lower my car much over 1". The rear geometry doesnt respond well to a moderate/agressive lower ride height.

Re: AE86 ride height adjustment

Its because each corner of the car is a different weight. More weight compresses the spring more so the ride height is lower, and the opposite for less weight. Measure the distance between the hub and fenderr at each corner, then adjust the height to compensate. Will take a lot of trial/error. Corne...

'Gear wine' just like the stock 5th gear fyi. Mfactory's first run they cut the teeth like stock, so apparently it wines a bit (just like stock). Second run they added a bevel (or something to that affect) to the teeth to reduce gear noise.
