Re: KONI Sports shocks for the AE86...

As I'm sure that you're already aware, anybody that told you that those other brands are better than Koni are retarded. Anyways, I didn't use a Koni but used a Tokico Illumina in the rear of my AE86 (still mustang, but I used one from a Fox body). It was shorter than the Camaro shock, but the eye bu...

Re: Suspension Combo Question

Megan front springs aren't linear. They're progressive, with dead coils. They're intended to be compressed a lot so they fit appropriately while using a standard length (non short stroke) shock. Your MR2 shocks are more of a short stroke shock, which is why you're having to compress them so much. ge...

Re: bashbar project

Looks like quality fab, nice job. One thing to think about however, is that if you do street driving or track driving with that thing, the lower bar is really low. This means anything you hit will catch on that lower bar and not give. Remember that the corolla chassis is super weak, and you've now c...

Re: Name of Body Kit?

I'd like to know where you bought that kit. From what I understand, that car was purchased from Signal Auto here in the USA, and brought to Japan.

All of the normal things will add power. Cam+Carb+exhaust manifold.

Now that I've addressed your question, I'll follow with the 4AC is a massive waste of time. You're not going to surpass the 4AG let along match it without significant amount of time, money and resources.

Here's the bottom line. You have no interest and are totally unfamiliar with AE86 culture. You don't get any of it. That's fine if you march to the beat of your own drummer.

Sometimes, its not all about making the most power. Sometimes, its about throttle response, sound, and feel.

Aside from the way your car looks, I think I figured out where the discrepancy is in your school of thought and others. You're running a manifold (obviously because its forced induction) to the throttle bodies. My write up, as well as most other people's school of thought for N/A applications is to ...

You don't have to use the rear coilover setup. you can purchase just the strut housing already cut, welded with the sleeve, spring, and camber plate. You can then choose your shocks.

Doesn't that mean your LSD isn't working? You're not supposed to just spin the inside whee...
