You sure that fuel pump's working? It may just be dirty, but the little tank thingy looked bone dry.

Re: 4AC blown, what the hell am I getting myself into??

I never doubted survivors were lurking lol. I guess my biggest concern is if everything is just plug and play. Strip the 4-AC and all its stuff, drop the 4-AGE and all its goodies, plug everything in the harnesses or the ECU, then that's basically it? I'm sure there's a lot more than that to an engi...

Re: 4AC blown, what the hell am I getting myself into??

I was thinking of getting some friends and making a funnny/informative video tutorial on the swap. I'll do a build log at the very least! I don't want the future generation of SR5'ers to feel like they're treading uncharted waters :D

Thanks, everyone, I'm feeling a lot more confident now :D My biggest fear on this is just messing up in the swap, then having to take everything apart just to plug in a fuse or something. But hopefully by the time the engine's ready, I'll be a little more mechanically inclined and I'll have assassin...

4AC blown, what the hell am I getting myself into??

So yeah I blew out the head gasket on my 4AC, and since I got another daily, I figured it's finally time to lay the old single cam to rest. Although I've been researching and digging up any guide I could on ensuring a smooth GT-S swap, I just don't have enough money right now to buy all the parts at...

Cool thanks, I'll look for a couple of L brackets then, and by fastening to the chassis you mean to use the chassis instead of the bumper to mount it to?

Fog light mounting help?

Hey gang, ran into a bit of a hassle in some badass new fog lights I bought. My original plan was to mount them into the lisence plate bracket in the bumper, but those are 10mm holes and my fog lights are 13mm. I'm curious to know if there's some kind of adapter I can get to mount the fog lights int...

Re: The best 4-AC upgrades...

The best thing I did to my 4-AC when i had it was just simply flip the air filter cover so that there is a gap all the way around the edge which enables the carb to pull in more air. The cover will tighten down on the air filter so all the air drawn is still through the filter. Unscrew the wing nut...

Re: How many AE86 are left in the U.S.?

They seem awful plentiful, there's almost always one or two up for grabs on CL in my area, even though I've only seen 1 AE86 in the area that wasn't mine. Is the 8-6 considered rare nowadays? Not many get scrapped and the few that do are usually just converted into part cars. I'm assuming that for n...
