Re: what happened to the community

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,...

Re: Kitsunami's 86 SR5 to GTS swap

As old as these 4AGE engines are, you would be lucky to get a good short block from a pick and pull. I would look at getting the crank turned [probably $90] that way you know you have a good bottom end. Do not but bearings until to get the crank back from the machine shop.

Re: Kitsunami's 86 SR5 to GTS swap

Finally opened up the 4AGE for the rebuild and my worst fears were made into reality. The block has spun bearings, which explains why the MR2 donor was at the Pick n Pull. The aforementioned MR2 I pulled it from had some front end damage, so I was hopeful that that was the reason it was donated by t...

Hey guys, I really need your guys help putting this to bed.
