Re: 4age 20v high oil temps

Sultan, I've read some people have issues with the VVT engagement on 20v engines with the reduction in oil pressure from an oil cooler, have you noticed any problems like that? Also, is your 20v a silvertop or blacktop?

Re: Trying to find the best rear differential for my BEAMS AE86

Go with weirs sc/turbo axle kit, expensive but will hold way more power than what you're looking at. I have it with a Kaaz 1.5 LSD bolted to one of his chromoly gear sets and it is a very nice setup. Definitely worth the peace of mind.

Re: 4AGZE Conversion

For all you other GZE folk out there.... You could always try and snag a pair of early large port cams (1984, 85, possibly some 86 4A's) supposedly the early blue tops had 240 duration instead of the late 16v 4A 232(?) Duration. Can't say for certain about the difference in duration but the early ca...

Re: 20v Blacktop Spark Plug Wire / Ignition Questions

I used NGK spark plug wires from, IIRC a 96 4runner 4 cylinder, it's the one with the 3rz before they went to coil on plug. They are totally plug and play other than not having the rubber boot to cover the plug tube on the valve cover. I improvised with the plug wire boots that came with my back top...

Re: 20V Blacktop intermittent misfire

OK... I was just wondering if your plugs might be overheating and causing a little bit of detonation... just enough to have the ECU knock back the timing ? As said above, if the engine is running a little lean (maybe due to open throttles ?) then it will likely generate higher combustion temperatur...

Re: Questions about W58 transmission (W58 swap owners please answer!)

Gearing spacing is better 1-4, 5th is a taller overdrive. It's way stronger for 20lbs more weight and best of all it shifts much better. You can run a 4.77 and have the same freeway rpms. Andrew ++++++1 It even looks beefier...... ;) https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2859/33595625670_6f857095e7_b.jpg ...

Re: Questions about W58 transmission (W58 swap owners please answer!)

So I weighed the w58 and t50 side by side last night.... this is with the bellhousing, TOB, clutch fork, and gear box, dry...as in no transmission oil. W58 - 84 lbs T50 - 65 lbs So yes there is a weight addition when switching to the w58, but personally I think 19lbs is negligible when you consider ...
