Re: EP91 Starlet Glanza V

It is a DMV now, I still live right by it. I remember that was the hot spot for car meets too on weekends. I used to live in Garden Grove but now I'm closer to Long Beach.

Yeah I'm thinking the same, weir axles and then I can buy your rear brake kit lol. Those ford rears are pretty heavy too.

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.

Those lights are pretty cool but kinda pricey. Too bad we don't have a Super Autobachs in the states anymore cause it doesn't seem like they would be easy to find here. Looks good though!

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...

That is awesome that you found your car on some random website lol. Too bad it wasn't fully intact like that before it got to you. At least yours sits nicely now compared to 3 years ago.

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.

Re: Supercharging 4age....can I get away with?

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.

ah you had one of these engines before. You should've kept it! Anyhow, I found out that the problem is the o2 sensor so I have to go pull one from the junkyard tomorrow. Should be idling soon, can't wait!

Re: Gonna start a build and see where it goes ===> TWINSCREW !!! :-p

Glad you are happy with the project thus far. It is looking great btw. I'd be interested to see what the dyno numbers are with a smaller SC pulley. Also, you can probably run a larger crank pulley to add even more boost like the 4agze guys do. Anyhow good luck with it all!
