Frankenstein 1984 corolla ae86 5.3

Postby Dave1uz » Mon May 05, 2014 4:51 pm

My name is dave, this is my project. It started with a 1984 corolla I purchased for my birthday 2 years ago from Arizona.
Image
Image
At the time I was living in an apt that would not let you work on your car so I couldn’t do anything major to it so I just used it as my daily for a year. Until I managed to move to my own house that's where the project started.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
I found another ae86 shell so i just had to get it.
Image
Image
The plan was to keep the coupe as a daily and make the hatch a drift car but at the time i needed money so i sold the coupe.:bang:
So i kept building my drift car
Image
Image
Then more bad news had some problems and had to move out of my house to an apt.
Image
luckily my friends let me put my car at their house
Image
and the building started once again we started with front suspension
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
suspension is 240sx with 300zx calipers
Image
Image
Image
original plan was to put in a 1uz v8 from a lexus ls400 but the dam transmission kit would not fit properly so i just got fed up with it and sold it
so it was back to the drawing board no idea what to do my friend told just put a 5.3 in it so we went looking for one.
Image
found one for 600 with ecu/wiring
Image
started cleaning it
Image
test fitting need oil pan to proper test fit used old 1uz motor mounts so now waiting on canton oil pan..... more coming soon

There shouldn't be a day that goes by where you don't learn something new.
