Re: My 85 Corolla GT-S build / F22c swap thread

I've been driving the car for the past 5 months or so. It runs great! Like driving a go-cart on the street. The rear end ratio is the same as an S2000 but the tires a much smaller so the gears are really short and close together. It turns about 4K RPMS @ 70 MPH. Not too bad. I still need to do somet...

Re: My 85 Corolla GT-S build / F22c swap thread

After the drive shaft was done, I started integrating the Corolla lights to the S2000 wiring harness. It was pretty simple.

Working on the wiring. You can see the S2000 climate control unit is in for more mock-up.

Throttle cable has been made. I used the S2000 cable inside the corolla sleeve. Shortened the whole thing about 18": http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g211/mtmetzger/85%20corolla/11F23876-9C9F-4683-B399-8C4FA13E16E2_zpsxn9iteuw.jpg http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g211/mtmetzger/85%20corolla/C...

Which rear end are you running? Also, can you post a picture and any details you have of the drive shaft? I'm not sure what I'm going to run in my F22c car just yet.

Thanks guys! Not a very exciting update, but it's what I've been working on... Figuring out the climate control. The car needs to at least have heat and if I can use the S2000 controls then that would be awesome. The blower box / heater core / diverter boxes from the S2000 were huge, but I think the...

So I took a pretty good break from working on the car around Christmas time and recently started back on it. Things are starting to move along nicely again.
