I totally get your logic and understand your viewpoint but this.... AE86 is a great car for modifying because the technology is basic. In the 1980's it was competing and winning in race and rally, but technology marches on and now it would be blown away by any of the current crop of "hot hatche...

Re: Still building 7AGEs?

for AWD, a boosted 7AG (stock head/stock cam) will make more torque than you'd know what to do with
A plain old journal bearing T28, T3 or small t3/t4 will do

Re: Still building 7AGEs?

you leave a LOT on the table by running a stock head

but that's the million dollar question. How much is a LOT ? Big valves, porting, cams, etc, only relevant at the crank/tires
No dyno overlays plotting the torque, for a stock head vs modified ? Must exist, with countless 7AG builds.

Re: Tips on Oil Restrictors

Dry sump systems are capable of achieving a negative crankcase pressure. If they added the restrictor in addition to this, that suggests oil flow to the head is excessive. factory oil pump & 8000rpm redline can't be compared to an elaborate dry sump & 9500+? rpm Totally different operating ...
