Re: Rwd 16v rear coolant neck. Repair suggestions. (Pics)

My metal tee came in the mail, so I hacked off the end of the stock outlet neck and added the tee (Tee measurements, as seen in the photo above are 5/8' x 5/16' x 5/8' and fit perfectly to the stock assemblies): http://i68.tinypic.com/2yzlg8k.jpg http://i63.tinypic.com/mll7o0.jpg http://i67.tinypic....

Re: Kitsunami's 86 SR5 to GTS swap

Eh... Hose clamps for pressurized fuel line? I'm betting I'll be okay. I'm basing this assumption on this post: http://www.club4ag.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=20979 And all the hose line I used is EFI pressure rated. Also, because I didn't cut any of the hardline, all the flared end fittings...

Re: Kitsunami's 86 SR5 to GTS swap

Decided now would be a good a time as any to clean up the carpet in the Eight Six. Removed both pieces and threw 'em into the washer. I found some rust on the bare floor on the drivers side so I spent some time sanding that out and applied a couple layers of primer. Also the factory underlayment was...

Re: Kitsunami's 86 SR5 to GTS swap

***Update*** As stated in a previous post, I decided I didn't want to pursue a GTS tank and fuel lines, which means I had the pleasure of installing a custom setup. I went with an MSD 2925 EFI pump. I've read more than a couple guides to installing these to work with the SR5 tank, and most of em cal...

Re: Fuel Line help

For the electrical side you should use a failsafe system as used in all 4AGE powered AE86 cars. This is designed to stop your pump continuing to run after you crash and you are trapped in the wreckage !!! Anything less is at your own risk. The following sketch shows how the GTS factory AFM system w...

Re: Fuel Line help

I've heard of people using the sr5 lines as the return lines though I have heard of people not having any problems using the SR5 fuel lines for supply and return. Just use the two larger lines. Also the GTS pump assembly should drop right into the SR5 tank as the SR5 and GTS tanks are the same exce...

ISO USDM Zenki AE86 (AE88) GTS Harnesses

Good morning C4A, It appears some harnesses I purchased a while back for my swap were incompatible. I didn't know there was a difference between them at the time, so lesson learned :? .

The temptation to trade is real. Just to clean the wires up at the front of the engine. I already deleted the EGR

I think the club is just seeing a change at the moment, but i believe in the near future C4AG will see a return but in a different way. The reason i say this is because the 86 is stepping into "classic car" territory, just like many cult cars before it, like the bmw 2002, datsun 510, rx3,...
