Re: Turn Key 20VBT AEM TOMIE

Your ex Manifold, is it the cusco "football" header? if so it will not fit in a LHD application. Buyers should not worry about this though. If it is the football header, its a piece of ae86 history and will be fantastic garage wall art! GLWS great looking engine bay. Neat and tidy wiring ...

Re: Realistic NA Build HP.

I didn't have knock monitoring and it just shoots about a quart of oil every few miles through my valve cover breather and when I crank it sounds like I got weak compression. I did enjoy the power but I just couldn't get it to stop breaking at the track. I understand reliability has nothing to do w...

Wow very nice. I bet it handles great on the street since it can spool the turbo so fast. This is my autocross car so fast spooling is Good. The car only weighs 1975 so it does not take much to make it a fast car. I run with 400hp Subarus all day long and usualy hang or beat them autocross racing. W...

Laptop, Aem Tuner program on a dyno. I did not tune it. Fuel seemed to be pretty dialed in. Had a pretty close to 13:1 AFR. That is shown on the botton of the dyno sheet.

It really varries on condition. I sold my JDM Map 16Valve for I think $550. Engine, ecu, harness. No trans. But it had like 175k miles and had a low comperssion cylinder and burnt oil. With trans and in good running condition I would think around $1000-$1500

Re: where can I get fender flares AE 86 track car

Battle Garage carrys fender flares. Just trim the fenders some and call it good. I did that to my racecar Levin and I like the way it looks. Cut just the section of the flare where it bends straight down. Going to run 15x9 0 offset 245/40/15 Hoosiers. I may have to trim more tho, we will see.

Correct, when the vvt is unplugged, it works fine. Ive ruled out the sensors at this point as they checked out fine when I tested them a while back. I thought it mightve been an ecu as well but no difference when I swapped in a working one. Exactly this. unplug the vvt and it goes away and drives p...

Re: Brake pedal goes soft,?

sounds like air in the system or a bad master cylinder. check for leaks from all 4 calipers and the back of the master. If those are all dry along with the lines I would suspect it being a bad master cylinder. when the internal seals go bad they bleed pressure past them and it sinks to the floor.
