Re: New AE86 restomod Daily Driver

This is really good. I can't honestly tell you about much reliability, but about twenty years ago when I was modding my USDM AE86's stock non rebuilt stock unopened "bluetop" I firstly used nawzz for about 5months (85hp needles). So that's about 180whp there. Then I turboed the poor thing ...

Re: Can a turbo work with a carburetor engine

Well, yeah. This file is a relatively well known, a blow-thru turbo'ed "stock" 4AC. Although, it's already more than 6 years old and these things always evolve...... or get thrown away/parted out.


But, same principle.

Re: 4AGZE Conversion

BTW seeing that you want to use stock parts, what kind of clutch set you guys have?

I had stock 200mm and 212mm sets used from Fidanza, Toda etc. for the OEM flywheel. Only the one from Illegal Garage lasted more than six months. And I didn't drift my AE86 regularly, but I did dragracing a lot.
