Re: 7AG Block, Is there a best?

That wasn't advice from Yoshi, I've done that myself, before Yoshi found out about it. My problem is finding a reliable source for the Aisin gasket. My latest install blocks the oil outlet completely routing the oil out the front of the pump assy. through an inline pressure bypass-filter-cooler back...

Re: 7AG Block, Is there a best?

On the oil pump hole alignment. Welding and drilling is unnecessary. Aisin makes a gasket with an oval hole and a little porting in the block and pump housing is all that is necessary, just a port matching. No sense in taking a chance on warping the oil pump housing with the heat associated with wel...

Re: 7AG Block, Is there a best?

If you have the funds, and a GOOD machine shop, have the oils squiters from a 4AG installed.

Re: 7AG Block, Is there a best?

The latest model possible. Supposedly there is a 7A block that has oil squiters, I haven't seen one. Look to the '98 Celica as the corolla was not a "performance" engine(don't see how it would matter here). I can give you a 'go look at this' thing for your build. If you are using the 4AG o...

Re: Rough edges around combustion chambers

Oh yeah, a smooth combustion compartment, head and pistons really reduces the chance of detonation, especially at higher compression levels. A steady hand and a Dremel can get the job done.

Re: Smog exemption???

As far as the loud exhaust goes here in Cali, They don't whip out a Db meter, they just say your exhaust is too loud and give you a Ref ticket. Funny thing about that is the exhaust is tested at idle and 2500rpm, when the exhaust is actually quiet. You get pulled over when you hammer the throttle, i...

Re: Smog exemption???

As far as EVs? I would like to have one, but when I commute 200 miles a day, not exaggerating that, sometimes more, and the only cars that have that type of range cost $100K, and the battery pack costs more to replace than a good build on my engine. I have a few reservations on them to say the least.

Re: Lit'lphant - Toyota's Hemi V8

I came across the engines at an importer(now defunct)
'All Engine Distributing' in Fresno CA. They had so many cool JDM engines! I'd go in just to see what he had, and occasionally I'd take one or two home.

I got 12k for all the engines and parts I had. That was back in '06.
