Re: Things I should know about the FX16?

Hi; Was wondering if I could possibly ask you a big favor! I was rear ended on the 26th of April and I am in need of lots of body parts. But the one I need the most is the tail light lens's. Could you get a Phone # for me of one of the Junkyards that have these FX16's so as I could get a hold of th...

Re: Things I should know about the FX16?

Still around. I bought new front and rear motor mounts via Rock Auto, but haven't installed them yet. I've seen people make their own, but I need to read up on it more and see what works. There were some AW11 guys for a while who were pointing the finger at stiffer polyurethane mounts causing chassi...

Re: Mr2?

MR2s are easy to work on. The 4AGE was designed to be in the car, so there's plenty of space around the engine to do maintenance. I feel like there's less room to wrench under the hood of my FX16.

Re: Things I should know about the FX16?

Swapped my rear tail lights with another set I had hanging around. One was brighter than the other, but it wasn't caused by anything electrical. The right one had a bunch of rust coating the interior. When I wiped the rust away, I also wiped away the reflective silver paint on the inside... so the i...

Re: Things I should know about the FX16?

Wow, factory power window and door locks? Nice. I'm kind going opposite and stripping mine down since the engine swap puts me into mod class anyway. I got halfway through event with the fresh rebuilt 20v. I went new oversize OEM pistons, block bored to match, new bearings all around, ARP main studs...

Re: wheel offset

Look for a offset calculator: http://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Wheel-Offset-Calculator# 15" wheels make a lot of sense. Tires are cheaper, there are many good tire options, the overall setup is lighter, and the car sits lower. Depending on where you live you can find a cheap set of wheels with ti...

Re: Things I should know about the FX16?

Your blog is pretty amazing. I haven't seen many people put that much work into an FX16. The struts on mine are pretty worn out, so I need to refresh the suspension soon. The Koni + Ground Control setup makes sense for a lot of cars. Finding the right lowering spring is really hit or miss. Did you t...

Re: facebook "killing forums" ?

The cars are old... - Finding an AE86 is tougher than it was 10 years ago - low supply, fewer owners, less posts. - Maintaining one takes space, money, tools, time, ability, and desire which a lot of prospective newb owners are lacking. - There are more modern sports cars on the market - S2000, Miat...

Re: Things I should know about the FX16?

Whenever you see an fx16, grab whatever you can. I have a shed full of parts, most of which I'll probably never use, but hey . . . Mine, which I've had for 12 years, is starting to be a hassle in major parts. Recently needed a rf axle shaft- the part identified as such by NAPA, Advance and O'reilly...

Things I should know about the FX16?

I bought a 1987 FX16 GT-S this week while my 1986 MR2 is down with some wiring issues(waiting for parts to arrive). Anything big I should know about the car? Tips? Best upgrades? It seems like parts may be harder to find than I first expected. 4AG stuff is out there of course, but it looks like FX p...
