OST-050 - a VERY special build
@Rascal21

You got a fair point there but actually do this proper (braking in an engine) needs quite a lot of space and infrastructure as one needs to put a load on it (brake). At this point we are already looking at dyno level equipment which most if not all of us don't keep at home...

This is a service only the very big shops offer. Honestly I can't think of a single one in my country who does this.
If OST were a shop with several employees and a big workshop why not. For the current circumstances this is way over the top. A lot of places don't even have the equipment to test flow figures which Dan has.
Last but not least even if one has the equipment, the time needed to do it is a major consideration too.

I agree with you he does deliver over the top (100%) service and obce you factor in the fees he charges you'll be hard pressed to find a better service on this globe (I've checked).

Once I get my 240Z registered in spring I'll send I'll have Dan work my whole engine and not just the head I already have.

Happy New Year everyone.

EDIT:
Maybe post your thoughts in a separate thread, I'm always curious about such things and would love to read your thoughts/conclusions. Smile

Except Switzerland,Germany?,...

I know it's late, but..
I have 2x early AE86's from Switzerland/W-Germany, one sold new in 1983 and one sold new in 1984.
Both came from factory with MAP sensor + VAF (Variable Air Fuel) potmeter (for adjusting mixture to a specific CO value).
Interesting, mine is a Swiss 85 and was already equipped with an MAF. I haven't had the pleasure to come across an older one yet. I'll need to check with a friend of mine who owned a dozen or so and see if he had one fron that age ti check if this was common or just a few one offs.

AE86 ex-daily
