AE86's in Bulgaria
it's been a while since I wrote...
so I've had some mods on my ae86 since, and namely:
1.changed the rear end to the GT version with LSD and rotor breaks - a bit more rapid, but certainly lowered the maximum speed of the car! which is something I am not very happy about, so I am thinking to rebuild the thing with the pinion of the SR rear end.
2. changed the exhaust manifold, and upgrated to a GT25 Garret brand new turbo, which comes on boost at 2700rpm on (old one only started at 3600rpm)
3. with the turbo I also put a new exhast system, basically a 63mm pipe until the end, with a straight through mufller. Car is quite enough, but still has this nice deep sound to it
4. changed the headgasket as it blew: oil outside, water inside, and leks between 3rd and 4th cylinders.
5. changed the cooling system from the moded FWD set up, to the OEM ae86 set up, this improved cooling.
6. changed the radiator, with a thicker one with twin el. fans, off a honda, but still made by NipponDenso ie, Toyota... :wink:

I seem to experience some cuts/skips rom the Ford EDIS 4 ignition modul whch I use together with Megasquirt. So soon will be upgrading the Megasquirt, to read OEM toyota cranck sensor, plus build in Ignitor, and only use the Forg quad coil (which puts out very nice and strong spark, and is also MSD upgradeable if desired).

Have not had much time to do more, since I also did an engine swap to my MA61 Supra, so now it has a perfectly running 2JZ-GE (36,000km motor) off a Lexus GS300 with 220hp, ie, half way gas pedal off the clutch and tires start burning, quite increadible change for the Supra, and I am very happy with it Smile
also boght me a nice little KP60 Starlet for Christmas, so as I write it is in the body shop being completely rebuild, after that it will recive a nice 4A-GE, with the old block, with moded small rods to fit the 20mm 10.3:1 C/R pistons, lightened flywheel, with a red top head, and blue top camshafts, which should basically make the 700kg midget fly around town Hurray!
Next on the ae86 mods, is change of the head, I am preparing a blue top head with bigger exhaust valves off the 7M-GTE, and a de-TVIS-ised intake manifold. I belive the small head has hard time deling with over 1.5bar boost, unless too retarded timing, so that's why the change.
well, these are the news from me.
you can see some pics of the supra with the 2JZ engine already in. if you go back on the same threat you will see some pic from the swap, you will notice the car had been repainted as well, but I will have it repainted again in mettalic blak...soon... Cool
hope you guys are all doing fine! and Zagreb, I am planning to pass by again sometime in mid May, with the Supra, so will be naice to mee you over at the nice albanian kebab place, which Jura took me to last time Smile
Great meat there Yummie!
