Re: FX-16 gear ratio/manual trans

swap the final drive gear for something smaller. I don't know what final drive gear size they had but on the AE86 it has a 4.3 stock. You can go with something around 4.1 or even smaller. You will sacrifice torque by doing this though.

I think it would be fun just to build one of these just for the experience. If you can build a megasquirt you can definitely do this.

Re: F20/F22 AE86 Swap

try spraying something into the intake to see if it will start even just for a second. I don't know these engines at all but that will at least tell you whether or not it is fuel related and you can work from there. I know some engines are finicky about MAF sensors and o2 sensors.

Which filter do you have, the C604D? How's your filter clearance?

Because John's kit has the best engine placement I've seen and the shifter relocation kit is adjustable. Excessive's while cheaper doesn't have any room for adjustment on engine location or shifter. SQ i think makes a decent shifter relocation kit but I haven't tried it. John's stuff is worth the ex...

Hey yeah, sorry I haven't had time to update/fix the photos but I will soon. As far as A/C goes, I am not running it at all. Probably easiest way would be to run the original 86 compressor and fabricate a mounting bracket if needed. If you'd want run the Beams compressor I'd imagine you'd have to do...

Re: After market hatch question

Yeah those spots should be reinforced to allow for struts and latches. For a hatch door, it would be pretty hard to break because of its position. But it all comes down to what you are going to be doing with the car. If for show go CF, if gonna see alot of track time, I'd keep it FRP personally.

Re: After market hatch question

from personal experience, fiber glass is good enough. I've had a lot of carbon fiber on previous builds and CF will eventually yellow if the car sees sunlight and will break pretty easily if not careful. CF is for show, FRP is for everything else IMO. On a side note, Seibon has some of the best CF p...

Re: Need help identifying some seats.

No fitment issues but I did have to make my own seat brackets. Mine have the mounting points at the bottom of the seat and didnt come with any rails so I took off the seat rails from SR5 seats and used those with some 1/4 steel strips.
