Are you happy with the mishimoto fans, and e fan conversion in general? I've had one of their fan shroud kits and conversion stuff in storage for a while and just haven't got around to trying it. I'm hoping it's not another mod I have to find out the hard way that I don't like lol.

The fan is good. Not too loud. I use a Derale relay switch with temp probe between rad fins. Just takes up a lot of space in the engine bay cuz the shroud adds thickness. Will have to make the fans easy to remove if you do any future accessory belt maintenance. I could tuck my wires down lower but I just put them on top in case I ever need to yank the radiator out.

Also to make the rad fit properly... The rad support sides should either be trimmed a bit or hammered in to fit lower pegs into the rubber mounting bushings.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Been busy and haven't had time to update in awhile. sooo...
Here goes!:


This damn oil filter didn't even work. Guess I ordered wrong one. Liked the pic tho.
Image

Me at a Word Up event in Stockton, CA just watching awkwardly.
Image

And the next 2 days of work begins! Glowing parts of awesomeness.
Image

Parts List:
T3 LCA, tension rods, PS knuckle and tie rods, RCAs, strut tube spacer/gland nut
Cusco camber plates, tension rod bracket brace
TRD sway bar w/ TRD bushings, 8kg springs, front 5-way adjustables short strokes, rear 8-way adjustable short strokes

Image

Image

Image

Was stuck here until someone told me I should turn the steering to shorten the rack!
Image

Spider-web caliper suspension.
Image

Image

Really dirty.
Image

Image

Needed a new tool. Next day I picked up a plumbers wrench as recommended by local 8-6ers.
Image

Image

Last time I would see these beauties outside of the strut casing

Image

Image

Image

BEEFY! T3 setup.
Image

Image

Sad to say I've had this sway bar for ~3 years. Been sitting pretty in the bag until now.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Rears I put on a few weeks later. This was Dec 27th.
Image

Image


Plans for 2014: Looking forward to the new year!


Front subframe rigid collars. These are not the spoon units.
http://youtu.be/zWyUD6UXfog
Image

These will hopefully be put to good use on a build.
Image

These ITBs too will either be on a build or on the 86.
And the carbon drive shaft in the background from gaijin_rokurunner will go on as well.

Dash cap install...
I think this was 2013 still...
Image

Image

Image
Image
Image
Image

So far, I think I liked my cloth cover better... This cap bends in the sunlight so it needs to be held down with velcro or some kind of adhesive.
I just placed it on the dash and secured it with a few pieces of velcro but its not really enough to keep it from warping.

Got these doors from member ViperVern on here.

Really a shame he parted out his hatch.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Moved the solex locks over.
Needed to mod the locks a bit due to the thicker FRP door skin.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

They work ok with the standard door panels.
Image

Image

Installed old zenki lip that I've had off the car for 1year+ now...


Image
Image
Image

Swapped rear seats out for a set I've had in storage for over a year...

OMG your car is so clean!!! :)

I love what you did with the decals! :D

Finally, is that drain plug magnetic? It doesn't look like the OEM plug on my 4AC; is the one for a 4AG different?

Thanks and keep up the great work! ^_^

The drain plug is the one that was on the car when I got it. It's not magnetic. :)

Good work! Thank you for the updates. I forgot about your thread, so I just re-read it.
You continue to keep this thing super clean. Wow!

Also, great job on that garage floor.

A photo update...


I think this was an event from back in February.
Car understeered like crazy hah.

Image

Got head back from OST a while back.
It has TODA 272/9mm exhaust cams and shimless 1SZ buckets.
Work on the 2nd engine will have to wait for some time though.

Image
Image
Image
Image

Got Tomei connecting rods for future but....
Image

One looks like this...
Image

Image
Image

A few from 8/6 day meet.
Image
Image
Image

Got these in from Ep Importers.
Check out their site and contact them for your Japan parts needs.

My next post will hopefully be about these.
