Re: "Kentucky AE86: A Levin Story"

Yeah ... Still haven't fixed anything Lol. Its too nice outside to put her under the knife. Although I did get a cool horn button off of a fellow forum member? Ended up having to get a little adaptor off amazon to make it work. Anyways, here's some eye candy. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1776/4332...

1992 NISSAN SILVIA S13

Hello all! About two months ago me and my buddies bought a Silvia together. We were told it had a misfire, but come to find out it has two bad cylinders. Low compression in cylinders 1 and 3. None of us have the time or space to swap/rebuild a motor so we figured it'd be easier to pass the torch ont...

AE86 Footage

Kind of a random question, but does anyone here have old school touge style or drifting footage they'd be willing to let me use for a music video? I'm starting a new little indie rock band and currently recording its first single. The idea comes from videos similar to this, but with better music Lol...

Very nice!

I've always wondered how a smallport head would perform with bigport cams. Seems like it would be a good and cheap little gain in power. Bigport cams offer 240 degrees duration with 7.56mm lift, where as smallport cams have only 232 and 7.1mm

Huh, are there 2 versions of the sport, or is it not a sport? I noticed the color of the paint is different (darker) than the one i bought new in 2011. 60 mm should be good for a turbo 4ag Yeah they offer the sport with a twin tip too I think. They also started painting them black with a polished t...

I agree with your mechanic, a replacement oem cat wouldn't do much to solve your problem, especially in terms of the sound of your exhaust.

Re: New AE86 restomod Daily Driver

LOVE IT. Basically you're combating the lack of air pressure in the mountains by lowering your compression so you can shove more air in there via turbo? Also, good call on overbuilding your motor. I don't understand why people build their motors and push it 110%. They spend more money trying to fix ...

They do look good, but not as good as an AE86 ;) The fact that its original CW paint and GSR VIN makes it worth a decent chunk of change too!
