And the engine - either its RED TOP (the old version with just the AE92 REDTOP intake manifold) or a whole engine... Ecu seems to be from AE92 so i can not still identifie engine...

Plans? Well - first of all - body - get rid of all the damaged panels - weld in all the new stuff - fix whats is still good for fixing - get the rear arches fixed (some rust spots on them) and paint it. After this - Engine. No more N/A.. Engine goes out - gets full overhaul with GZE forged pistons (late spec) GZE rods, ARP Headsutds, cometic headgasket, ACL rod/ main bearings, brand new oil pump Smile

After this - custom exhaust manifold + turbo (still cand decide with wich one to go... Either CT20B of VF2Cool

Suspensio - S13 suspension in the front, S13 rear in the back (this might happen later...)

Transmision - SXE10 Altezza tranny with custom belhousing.

Oh - and the main thing - RHD to LHD conversion Big Grin Cuz its not posible to register the RHD car on the road here... So this will include custom dash and other stuff Smile

Lots of still in mind - so keep tuned - and you will see some action Smile

Honestly - it rand around 2900 euros including delivery / customs fees and etc... So its not that bad, if lets say compare to the Europe corollas and in waht condition you can get one for that price in EU...
