Re: Any one good with oem radios?

Grab a volt meter and start testing the pinouts. Basically most important is ground and power, then you can trial and error for the speaker positions. Or, you can do what I did and get one of these... https://www.carid.com/metra/factory-replacement-wiring-harness-with-oem-radio-plug-mpn-71-1398.html...

Fee increases that started at the beginning of last year. I got hit with a lot because that was my first registration of the car from being brand new. It should be less this year though.

Re: What's your other car?

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.

I am running the same harness.

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

Anyone know of a easy replacement for the dash vents? Something that has similar dimensions and can be easily sourced? Otherwise I'm thinking of just blocking off the holes altogether. Anyone have any good ideas?

Yea the old megasquirt used the distributor signals so i couldnt understand why it wouldnt work with the speeduino. I have a buddy who is interested in trying to build one of these with a blacktop 20v. I will probably help him out with it and post my findings here.

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 ...

Re: FX-16 gear ratio/manual trans

swap the final drive gear for something smaller. I don't know what final drive gear size they had but on the AE86 it has a 4.3 stock. You can go with something around 4.1 or even smaller. You will sacrifice torque by doing this though.
