Re: OST-053: Massaging a 20V Blacktop

Re: Looking to build: 4age vs. 5age vs. 7age

4A and 7A have similar rod to stroke ratio... a 5AG is much worse. Based on that alone... you will have a very difficult time making a 5A make power above 8500 ish rpm. If your goal is 9000 rpm capable... stick with either 4A, or 7A 4A vs 7A, @ your budget level - the 7A wins every time. MRP has all...

Re: Lit'lphant - Toyota's Hemi V8

Oh man! Been a long time since I saw one of those. I had a small collection of Toyota engines that I thought were cool a while back. I had one of those engines sitting in line with a bunch of other rare engines. Here are a few of the other engines I scooped up an 18RB(see if you can find that one),...

What is your honest feedback on the TRD conrods for the 20v? I know i need to rebuild my 20V, not sure if bore walls are STD, if not, big pistons will follow and obviously new conrods (just because). Not sure what to purchase... I've had this set of rods for a while... in fact this set's been to Eu...

What method did you use to get the head so clean?

Re: OST-054: 3 rib with snap

As many heads that you rebuild , take 25 minutes and make a holding fixture from small section of angle iron, that will bolt on to your bench grinder. As long as you set the valve stem square to a fine grit wheel, you can easily remove a couple thou by hand at a time. Just have a container of water...

Re: 4AGZE N/A conversion/differences between 4AGE and 4AGZE

the only significant difference between a 1988 4AGE, and a 1988 4AGZE are the pistons. Both use essentially the same block, and crank, and connecting rods. While the above is accurate, if you compare a 1986 4AGE to a 1988 4AGZE, then EVERYTHING is different.... block, crank, rods, pistons are all di...
