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), ...

40mm rods, crank and flywheel

I have a 40mm crank and rods with a light flywheel (I believe it is 9lbs) with a new pressure plate. I have a set of ARP rod bolts that go with the rods. I also have an oil pan that was baffled and had the volume increased. I have a JDM block posted elsewhere here as well so this would be a duplicat...

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

Trade the GZE for a GE and start from there. In the area you are looking to build to "cheap" means early engine failure. You wouldn't have to remove as much from the head and using a thin MLS gasket would reduce the necessary machine work further. With cams in the "288-304" range...

Re: draw thru 4age update and question!

Not that I've experienced. Intake systems for a draw through system are small, no intercooler and piping to increase the volume of the intake. Reason for such a design is to reduce the possibility of driving around with a bomb under your bonnet. An inline engine may have a bit more piping, a VW woul...

Re: draw thru 4age update and question!

For idle screw setting, 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 turns out. If you can't get response from a full turn in either direction then your jetting needs attention. And we go back to cam timing here too. Carbs need a good vacuum to operate properly in the idle and bypass circuits(fuel draw, atomization, etc..). Cam t...

Re: draw thru 4age update and question!

Cam timing?? Does adjusting the idle screw make ANY difference? Dirt in idle circuit or jetting could be off. If the cam timing is off idle will be really difficult to maintain and can cause the that kind of surge in RPM. Been a long time. No bypass would be needed with a draw through as the throttl...

Re: draw through turbo 4age!

If you want to build the carb for extreme use look into "dry sump" mods. I've done this on some VW engines and my carby crawler. Great mod for extreme angles and off road bouncing around. It eliminates the float and needle valve and involves a return pump, fuel cell foam and baffling. Best...

Re: 4age PCV how does it work

I wouldn't plug the pipe, you want the crankcase to vent the blow-by. Putting a filter on the nipple would drip the condensed oil onto the manifold and make a mess. Best bet would be a catch can, or even a 'road draft tube' to direct the oil vapors away from the engine. You would want a filter on an...

Headwork! Just know the limitations of the bottom end. No sense in building a top end to destroy the bottom end. Typically, the bottom end can handle 9000rpm with the weak link being the oil pump.
