Re: Shock Dyno Data Anyone?

LoTek for example catered to this market for a few applications.
We AE86 just go with shorter appl cartridges/mod housing + shorter rear shocks
stock length cartridges kill travel and die even quicker with more aggressive spring rates

Re: help a n00b build a 1.8L 4age?

I'd keep a tab on that 1.8 build. Seems 'costly' vs.....
hi mileage 4AGE + T3 turbo, megasuirted, or a 4AGZE(if you can still find one/or stock rod 7AGZE)
or a 1UZ/stock 240sx 5spd
Either will give you that fat torque band, with no comparison in acceleration.... or noise level

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.
