Re: USDM AE86 TACH

Sounds like the right wire, you might have to trace it back and see if there are any shorts on it. Even possibly that it could be the wrong wire there are a few that look the same.

Re: Smog exemption???

So regarding the CA exhaust laws, anything past the catalytic converter is okay under CA law to modify. That's coming from the owner of an exhaust shop. They get into big trouble if they modify anything between header and cat. Also, according to SEMA, the CA exhaust law introduced in January 2019 is...

Re: Speedometer inaccuracy

You would need to swap the speedo gear. SQ engineering has several options available

Also, wheel size also affects the speedometer if you want to experiment with different sizes.

Yeah you should be hearing static of some sort. Turn the volume all the way up and see if you can hear some static. If not, something is wrong with the speaker wiring.

2017 Toyota 86, 860 edition. Got it specifically for a daily driver cause the AE86 brings too much attention. It's reliable so far, I just wanted something that is fun to drive and not have to worry about for a while. Being the so-called predecessor of the AE86 is an added bonus as well. Only downsi...

Re: ac delete

After searching the interwebs it looks like your best bet is to find someone selling the tensioner from a 4age that didn't have A/C. Also, you can try to modify the current tensioner to work without the ac compressor hooked up.

Re: Alternator Preference

On my old 4AGZE I ran the Duralast one for an AE86. Had to go through about 3 of them before I found one that worked longer than a month though. They do have a lifetime warranty which is a plus, just takes time to find a good one unless you're lucky.

For me, I wired the positive to the same place as the battery to the starter and the ground ...

Re: Speeduino? Arduino powered ECU?

You have a couple of options to get that square wave signal. Easiest would be to go to the junkyard and pick a crank sensor off a 90s ford equipped with EDIS. Then you would need a trigger wheel, i used the one from T3 cause it bolts right on to their crank pulley. Make sure you use shielded wiring ...
