Try posting in the "want to buy" section. I have one in storage but that's a bit away from me right now. I'm sure someone else has one available.

Re: Bluetop 16V + Poncams + Pistons = ?

If you are planning to go as far as that in your mods, and keep the stock ECU, at least consider a wideband AFR monitor and some kind of piggy back to make minor adjustments. You can use the Apexi AFC or a Greddy E-manage (examples) for piggy back. The E-manage stsarts getting close to the price of ...

Re: 7age options

Rods are Crower I-beam and the pistons are CP 81.5 flat top. rotating assy has been balanced with the flywheel. Really don't want to split the set though, it would be quite a waste.

OK, warning on using the 'T' word, you're gonna get a flogging. But from one that actually understands what you're saying.... Use the small port head and manifold. Keep the stock valve size, and do a good port clean up. If your budget can allow, Extrudehone the manifold. Keep the cam duration on the...

Extra sets of chokes and jets and carb kits. Invested a lot more than I'm asking. $1500 +shipping or $15...

Oil pressure switch/sender? does your car have an oil pressure gauge? Does your oil light come on when you turn on the ignition? Looks like it was cut off somehow. try to find the other termination.

First question any one will ask is "What's yer budget?" Second, What are your plans with this engine. And I always ask, what restrictions do you have to adhere to? Like smog restrictions. No sense in building a 300hp turbo engine, if you have to smog the thing. Or a 10,000rpm screamer that...

Re: ae82 build

Suspension is a bit difficult to source for the AE82. Look to Whiteline, Australia, for the bushings and sway bars. BC makes a set of struts that do well enough. Install longer wheel studs/lugs for using spacers, cranking the camber without changing wheel offset will get you polishing the struts. Ev...

Re: Mildy tuned 4a-ge bigport MPG

Took many days of minor adjustments here and there and driving like you WANTED to save gas. Any idea how hard it is to get passed by EVERYBODY? It was a good practice in self control. Lots of discipline. I don't think I'll ever bother again, at least not until I can only get 5 gallons of fuel a month.

That sounds decent. Especially with spirited driving! I did a build for economy, 4AGE awhile back. My final combination was 10.7 comp(our mid grade fuel, 89) with the intake cam being a WEB camshaft grind 294, 8.2mm lift and 246* ad/220 @ .050" with an early 4AGE OEM cam on the exhaust. Actuall...

If you go the shop route get to a well respected 4AG builder. There are some that people will suggest. I can't give you any shops in your area, I'm not familiar. A good shop will cost a pretty penny, but you can be sure of the build. Do be careful of taking references from peeps that don't have 4 ba...

Re: Heinous Rodknock from 1986 Mr2

I'd give 800 for a non running MR2 as long as the body had no rust or major damage. Or RED, I hate red. It would be a great building platform. Most I've paid for an MR2 is 2500. Bad suspension, but good everything else. Gave me a place to put the suspension from my wrecked 2.

On cams and compression. You live in an "enhanced" smog test area. The way they test these little cars actually takes them beyond normal operating parameters. Cams approaching the 260-270 advertised duration tend to make passing the test on the difficult side. Not saying it can't be done w...

Re: Heinous Rodknock from 1986 Mr2

$2500 is a decent budget. Find out what damage is done and you'll have a better idea of where to start. You're going to get suggestions of what you have to have, some are just personal preferences of other people, some are necessities. Examples being a 7-rib block is a must and a 42mm crank/rod set ...

Removing the head is for clearance, most jack won't have enough height to allow the whole assembly to slide under the rear of the car. Removing the head would also make it easier to get the engine down with less chance of scratching the engine bay. Would probably be a better way to go for the first ...

Re: 4age running rough, I'm stumped, pls help

Check your electrical connections as well. A loose electrical supply or ground can cause a lot of problems. And, if you didn't know this, the igniter/coil mount/clamp grounds the ignition system. Make sure that it's bolted tightly to the chassis.
