Re: Cracked poly bushing -- would you run this?

I would want an exchange, there is no point in using an item that is not the way it was supposed to be designed. It may not affect anything, but it is a weak point for sure. The only bushings with splits like that are swaybar bushings. Even if it did work I myself would not be happy with it and put ...

Re: 20v pain in the neck

Yup I recommend you stick to something as close to factory as possible. Buying a setup you don't understand will only frustrate you, I see this happen way to often.

Re: need help identifying this gze transmission.

You should ask around in mr2oc. Im positive the sw20 lsd axle stub works. You will need a shorter driverside axle. Chico race works sells a aw11 gze length axle.

Re: need help identifying this gze transmission.

On the E series transmission the factory viscous lsd has the bar in the diff and the open diff has a small circular openning. The aftermarket diffs for the E series also has the small circular hole opening in the diff. The only lsd axle that will work aside from the factory one is the mr2's lsd axle...

Re: Think you understand the relationship of torque and powe

I guess to be more specific i'm talking about an engine that makes 20lb more torque at 3,000-4,000 rpm than one that makes 20lb less. When I say an engine that produce more torque I guess I was assuming how most people identify torque as low end power, and horsepower as high end power, although hp i...

Re: Turbo vs NA

I prefer NA to Turbo for autocross. The "response" of an NA allows me to drive on the limit much easier, with more confidence, and with more precise control. Sometimes I don't want the full power the car can make - I want to feather in the throttle to keep traction on the rear wheels and ...

This isn't about the ae86, and it may be different from an NA-T setup. I had an sw20 turbo that was fairly quick, but when I first test drove my beater Paseo it felt so much more enjoyable even though it was way slower. The way the NA engine responds is just something so nice, even though the 5efe l...

Re: Converting my Ae82 to become an AE86

If your looking for an engine swap you can do a silvertop 20v or blacktop 20v in the ae82 chassis without modifying anything except the wiring. If your asking to turn the ae82 to RWD, as I mentioned before it may be easier to do a mid engine setup. It also would probably be better to even do an AWD ...

It may be easier to transplant the 4age to the rear and make it an MR, at least that way you don't have to mess with the front suspension and or weld in a front crossmember for the FR setup. The FWD mac struts would not work to well with the FR setup. With making it MR you know you can use the major...

If it is still on the sc12 I dont see it being much more over 200whp and if it was an sc14 220whp, even with the head job. The limiting thing to the hp here isn't how your engine has been built, its the air pump that is limiting the output. These superchargers usually run out of breath before 7,000r...
