Kouki Coupe | Carb'd 4AG!

Okay heres the deal, my car is an 87 SR5 coupe slammed to the ground on blown shocks and whats left of some drop springs ;) Under powered like a BOSS, but with 13's its still fun as :!: I have recently aquired an unfinished SR5-GTS converted 86 coupe, with a Largeport 4AG from a buddy! Since my car exterior/interior wise is muchhh cleaner, and I have a thing about finishing other ppls projects, I am stripping everything from that car and using it for mine :mrgreen:
The reason why I am going with carburetion is because I just like carbs, and Ive seen a lot a bad ass carb'd 4AG's! Any advice from you guys running carb'd setups would be great!

I'll start of with some pics of the car so far.

When I first got it, it didnt even run!~

You got a real nice project 86! A carbed 4age 16v is pretty good when done right and of course w/supporting mods. You have a lot of options on carburetors, you can go with the latest and greatest technology carburetors or you can simply stick with the old school. Here's a thread of my build if you're curious.. viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4076

Progress on the 4AG is currently at a stand still due to current job of rebuilding this 22r for a friend...

SINCE MSD TIMING CURVE COMPS 8980 and 81 ARE HARD TO FIND, I WAS CURIOUS ABOUT THE ACCEL 500+ SYSTEM! Anyone know anything about this setup?


I think it comes down to personal preference, price, and availability. I got the 6AL-2 like most other carb swaps, but the Accel 500 looks pretty close, if not the same. The one thing I notice that's missing from any of um, is the ability to compensate for load like stock distributor setups used to (i.e. weights, vac advance, etc). IMO, Dr. Occa's is a good guy to get a hold of, he's helped me out a lot when I was building mine. Good luck n keep it going

Yeah i live Kailua! Haha, And when it comes time for ignition im hoping to source a MSD setup! I read Dr. Occa's carb thread all the time haha. Ive also been looking into the XDI setup, seems pretty sick having no dizzy but cant really find too much info on it here... :|

A carb'd 4AGE swap is just what you need! What is your budget though? Lots of Toda parts on your wish list.....

^ Couple things. First, look up the price of Keihin FCR 41mm carburetors. Second, if you don't have access to precise machinery (a GOOD and I mean GOOD mill) it will be hell. Third, you need to be REALLY good with a TIG welder (or know someone who is). Fourth, Nothing lines up. How do i know, look at my build thread.

Been really busy lately, but finally rolled the car out to the clean the bay so I can begin stripping, welding, fabbing custom rad support and what not to prepare for the 4AG. I plan on doing all of the chassis/suspension work first before I start on the engine build!

Also finished building this 22R for a friend so now I can just focus on my ****..!

Cant say I havent thought of putting a 22R in my Hachi :lol: :P
