Wow yeah I might have to do that if I can't find some proper flanges. Thanks!

Re: Gonna start a build and see where it goes ===> TWINSCREW !!! :-p

Re: Gonna start a build and see where it goes ===> TWINSCREW !!! :-p

I'm not sure about swapping flanges. You should be able to use your AE86 starter, and probably the starter from any 16V 4AGE or 4AFE including the FWD models. I used the AE92 reduction starter with a T50 and apparently, the starter from an AE93 (whatever that is?) will work as well. Try and get a s...

Re: Gonna start a build and see where it goes :-P

As promised, a closer look at the 20V starter. Looks like this on the outside... http://i.imgur.com/z1Jlvzc.jpg ... and like this on the inside... http://i.imgur.com/EqfvQyU.jpg So there you have it... 20V starters are reduction type. The gears down the speed and up the torque so that the starter m...

Re: aceforever's panda build log

Can't help on the question of lift... but if you asked Kelford Cams I'm sure they could tell you if their cams will work without modifying the head. They will also want to sell you some springs :) The chip is no problem. Just smooth the chipped part with a file or Dremmel so that there are no sharp...

Re: aceforever's panda build log

Performed a compression test and a leak down test today! If you ever need a way to compression test without the harness here's a way. Use your battery ground cable as the positive cable of the starter. Then connect up a wire to the signal terminal on the starter. Connect thick positive cable to a po...

Re: aceforever's panda build log

Point taken, will be setting up appointments for tuners :) Are there any concerns of running 9.2mm lift mechanically on stock 20v BT parts? Also noticed a chip on the crankshaft pulley. Is this of concern? looks like it's on the outside part of the pulley past the rubber part. https://i.imgur.com/U2...

Re: aceforever's panda build log

Haha to be expected. And not what I'd like to hear having just taken the plunge. But it's alright :D

I'm considering more aggressive cams, like the toda 272 9.2 and the kelford around similar + aftermarket ecu and harness, and upgraded springs if needed.

I'd be happy making ~150whp

Re: ITB's, Coilpack, Haltech ECU installation for 16v

On the topic of better tunability during atmospheric MAP is to tune using a blend of TPS signal + RPM and MAP. This isn't supported on my haltech but may very well be on yours.

Currently I'm using the wideband O2 sensor to help keep AFR not leaning out, but it's not ideal.

Re: aceforever's panda build log

oof, that does look awesome, especially with the ITBs :D

I'm going with the 20v blacktop, I hear various numbers for how much bhp these make, anywhere from 150 to 180. Toyota claims 160PS, but I think I haven't seen any stock ones with more than 150 on the forums.
