Re: Celica ST 1991 rebuild + 4AGE swap

I'm sure if you're aware, but the ARP stud on the exhaust side, number 1, will interfere with the stock distributor in the head.

Re: Celica ST 1991 rebuild + 4AGE swap

engine isn´t finished yet. Still waiting for head assembly, hopefully next week... There is early 4AGE crankshaft inside 4AFE block,(they are all the same, as it is still 4A), so I don´t expect any issues here.

Got news from machine shop. Head is nearly finished, just needs little porting after fitting new tungsten valve seats. They are oversize to accommodate 7MGTE valves. Still vaiting for Kelford 193-B cams (284/278 Duration, 9.20mm/8.50mm Lift). http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/22/l9a8.jpg h...

Re: Celica ST 1991 rebuild + 4AGE swap

Brakes update :-) I threw away the original brakes and got the stock ones from ST185, which are slightly bigger. Also converted to 5-stud hubs and disks at the rear. http://img545.imageshack.us/img545/6999/ql6b.jpg http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/5/3w9b.jpg http://img15.imageshack.us/img...
