Not a AE86 but a KE70 with a 4age + ITB's - Total rebuild!:)
Hi folks,

Ok, here is my 4age > KE70 project in full swing but some of you may of seen it over at DW etc, so I wont bore you and everything with all the details, just a quick look to where I am at now! Big Grin

Bought car last year, one owner, 25k on the clock and in great condition for age, I have owned a few AE86's here and there but really couldnt decide on what type I like and I also wanted an older car but I loved the 4age so bought a KE for an all-round mix! Big Grin

Had to fit an AE70 pedal box as the KE (K series engines) use the k40/50 gearbox and it is cable operated clutch but the 4age and T50 box from a AE86 is hydrolic so the clutch pedal neads changing and a clutch master cylinder needed putting in.

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Not a AE86 but a KE70 with ...rebuild!:)]

thats where I am up to as of today, the rest to still do....


o Fit in AE86 fuel tank and fuel lines, not a straight bolt in as filler neck need to be modified.

o get a custom rad made, ae86 one looks to shitty fit for my liking! Smile

o add exhaust and manifold and quite a few other fiddly jobs like bleed brakes, etc hope o be ready in next 4-6 weeks.

Cheers

cheers for the kind words so far! Smile

Dollykean: The car isnt up and running just yet. I still need to wire in all the new Wiring loom and custom VEMS ecu.

Also got to sort out a number of small jobs too.

Wont be too long though, its just cash is ran out and progress has had to be slowed right down! Sad

i like it much, old school jap style.
one thing that completes the look are chromed fender mirrors, they dont suit for ae86 but for this car they are a must.

Thumbs up!

p.s. i like the 4round light front, its imported or was it standart in UK?

Top picture is what the UK KE70 lights are like std.

I imported the twin headlights from Yahoo Auctions.

I dont plan on running mirrors on the wings, I think that that look is a bit over done and obvious. I am just keeping std mirrors for now.
