Re: Aukword1's Beams Swapped AE86

Not really, I just wired in a tach adapter so I have a dash rpm signal now. I am waiting for an adapter to hook up the dash water temp gauge as well. I still am tossing around ideas for the rear axle but right now but it drives fine just has an open diff. I can post a driving video over the weekend ...

Now that is some nice innovative thinking there. This is by far one of the coolest builds I've seen so far.

I ran into this same problem. I used the Megan inner rods with the T3 outer rods and that fixed the issue.

Re: Aukword1's Beams Swapped AE86

The kit I got from JSPFab didn't have gearbox mount spacers. If you wanted to add them yourself then yea i guess you can get by without hammering the tunnel near the shifter. With the engine in the rear position with this kit I did not have to hammer the firewall.

Re: Aukword1's Beams Swapped AE86

Okay well a lot has happened since my last post. For starters, thanks to Amazon's same day shipping I was able to swap the LC-2 with an AEM X series wideband. The AEM wideband worked perfectly in sync with the Link G4+ ECU right out the box. Needless to say, I was able to make my appointment at Chur...

Re: Aukword1's Beams Swapped AE86

Yeah, so I ended up just swapping the slave cylinder with the stock 86 one and it works a lot better. For the time being I will keep this setup and maybe eventually play with it some more. All in all, the original 86 master and slave work pretty well with this swap and I don't see an immediate reaso...

That is definitely it. Be careful with the vacuum things, they can break pretty easily when pulling the engine in and out.

Re: Aukword1's Beams Swapped AE86

No but that is the plan. The engagement/disengagement point of the clutch is really low, almost at the point where the pedal hits the floor. I will try to extend the CMC rod and see if that makes a difference but I can't imagine that the Aisin CMC's have much adjustment in them, if at all. Well, tim...

Re: Aukword1's Beams Swapped AE86

The coolant leak was the old heater core routing along the coolant line. I had originally plugged it but the plug was leaking a bit. So I took it out of the garage yesterday to test the clutch function and I don't really like how it feels. I might try swapping the old T-50 slave cylinder in to see i...

Re: Aukword1's Beams Swapped AE86

So I fixed the coolant leak in the back of the engine and confirmed that the clutch engages and disengages as it should. I am running the AE86 master with the j160 slave and it works fine. the only problem is that there is a little bit of play before the clutch will engage. Just another issue I will...

That supercharger whine is awesome. Such a great build man. Sucks to hear that about the NZ community, but it happens with everything that is fun. I think you nailed it by saying that it becomes a part of the entertainment industry.

Of course you can. I'd suggest running a water/methanol injection kit to keep the air cooled during boost and you should be just fine.
