Newera Import's 200 bhp N/A AE86 - Progress Report!
I'd made a sensible choice and sold my mint 2002 S2000 with the intention of using most of the money to pay off some of my mortgage and buying a clean, but low priced car to get into drifting with..

Being my 4th Kouki Corolla Levin AE86 (Had 3 in UK over the years before moving away in 199Cool this one started out as a mildly tuned example on carbs... Nice & clean, it was meant to be used just as an entry level drift car...

Couldn't resist tinkering with it...and so that was the beginning of a slippery slope!

It's taken 2 years and more expense than I ever want to tally up, but it's finally there mechanically. A completely reliable 200 bhp N/A AE86 that can be driven to the track, drift with the best cars there and still show some grip cars why the AE86 is special on the touge roads of Japan.

Below are some pics of the build, then the full current technical spec.

Newera Media will be making some video clips of this car in action on Japan's drift tracks... and maybe a few on the road....

Here's how it started out in 2004:

The car needed power, so I fitted a set of Toda Racing Cams, HKS vernier pulleys, oil cooler, strut brace and a few more bolt on bits...

Despite trying all the different jet sizes I could find, I just ouldn't ever get the carbs to work properly (Turned out to be a crap design on the inlet manifold, not the carbs...)

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Newera Import's 200 bhp N/A...ss Report!]

Talked to Techno Pro Spirits and realised to get around 200 bhp and reliability was going to cost plenty... But I couldn't get the thought out of my mind.

Feck it. Asked them to build me their top spec race engine and bang went the money that I'd saved to pay off a chunk of my mortgage! Tongue

Whilst I waited for the engine, I read up everything I could find on AE86's. Also built myself a custom gauge cluster with integrated shift warning light (programmable with the Defi system). Note even the fuel gauge is illuminated. Speedo is electronic drive - with an Apexi RSM readout.

Didn't like the look of the stripped interior. Tatty and ugly, so the carpet and centre console would soon be refitted.....and the rest.

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Newera Import's 200 bhp N/A...ss Report!]

Bodywork got a make over too. Off came the 14" watanabes and on went new 15" ones.

New engine took a month to build...

Twin Billion electric fans with 95 Degree thermostat plus an over ride switch for use when drifting:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Newera Import's 200 bhp N/A...ss Report!]

No dyno mapping for me... Asano San of TPS mapped it and worked his magin on his way too and from home...PERFECTION was the only option!
Despite 304 degree 11 mm cams and high compression, car idles at 1,000 rpm and has torque low down a lots of power above 4,000 rpm - all the way to 9,000.

Working outside late nights... Lucky to have an understanding wife!

At 90 km/h - the no. plate goes horizontal, but returns to normal at lower speeds. All for maximum air flow... and oh, the speed cameras!

My first drift track day in Japan - April 2006 (Car performed faultlessly and has never broken down - yet).

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Newera Import's 200 bhp N/A...ss Report!]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Newera Import's 200 bhp N/A...ss Report!]

Exhaust manifold from TPS cracked from drifting, so I got a full race N2 item made specially by KMS. A work of art.

By this stage I'd long stopped counting how much money this car was costing. No way will I ever get it back, but I won't ever sell.
Did my mortgage get reduced? Nope... Still the same.

Nikko Circuit, 3rd drift track day I'd attended...

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Newera Import's 200 bhp N/A...ss Report!]

Wheel is well off the ground, car's at 90 degrees to the corner. Wheels are partly behind the summit of the banking.

Wet circuit...

Here's an old clip shot on my 3rd drift event.... I've improved a bit more, since and can now enter the corner after the straight in 3rd and carry a lot of angle all the way through.

You, my man, receive my utter respect and all my best wishes. Damn, that car rocks! As I read through i was thinking 'giving up an S2000 for a hachi, man, that guy has to be insane, or the hachi needs to be something else', now I see it's the latter. My hat is off, for sure!
