Has made such a difference of the inside of the car!!

Well, I got board...so I stupidly listened to the flatties and went and brought myself another engine! :lol:


Ok, so now for the full story.....
After days and days of research, and having the flatties tell me that I would miss not having boost, I thought ok, ill build myself a 4agTe, plus I can learn all about engines while I build it (im as mechanically knowledged as Brittany...well not quite, but ya get the drift), so I found a suitable 20v 4age on tard me for sale and brought it.

Went to supra fest over here with the gf's supra and took my AE along as it will be the last time this drives under its own power until the new engine goes in.
I absolutly love this pic!!!! Big Grin

The plan is to strip the car back to pretty much the bare shell, tidy up the small rust parts around the rear guards, take out the door looks, prep the engine bay for de-looming etc (plus a few others that im going to keep quiet until I have done them hehe)...and the have it all ready for painting.
So far we got up to removing everything off the rear all the way forwards to the dash. It was well after midnight and it was a week night, so we thought best to stop there and we can continue on next time.
Heres a couple of pics to give ya the rough idea...

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

The joys of having a flatty that works in removals....LOTS OF BUBBLEWRAP!!! :lol:
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

And the best part of all that we found (well, didnt find) in the boot, was...NO RUST!!! Huh Big Grin

ENGINE:
As for the engine side of things, that is all going good.
I went down today and dropped off the new oil pump, toda cams, and cambelt. They are going to make a start on the rebuilding of it now, so that should be ready in a few weeks. Woot!!!
They have gone through and balanced everything! Decked, skimmed, well yea, everything to the engine, so once its done, it will be a fully blueprinted and balanced engine. I basically thought that I want to do it properly (even thou its costing me my left testie) and make it as reliable as possible.
Heres some pics of the drop dead sexy clean engine parts lol...

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

Forged conrods
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

Forged pistons
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

Fully rebuilt head
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

Theres no pics of the actual block itself as that was tucked away at the back of the shelf, and the poor guy had already pulled all these parts out for me to take pics of, and I didnt have the heart to ask him to pull the heavy block out too lol.


We are 95% done on the engine bay de-looming.
A HUGE thanks to my best mate Stolic for all the countless hours spent on the car (so far :lol: )

Heres a pic of the test engine sitting in the car just so we can finish off the wiring:
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

Also working on the water system at the moment. Have some secret squirrel stuff been done on that. Will show once thats all done too.

woot! I ordered an intake from Ebay on Tuesday, and its just arrived...not bad to say it came from the other side of the world in 3 days.

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

Thanks Stolic for all the hard polishing: (will be adding a carbon cover once they arrive)
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

more parts arrived...

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

Yay, custom made bumper is done and ready to be picked up.....

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

Well they have finally arrived!!! 6 weeks wait, and it has been so worth it!

The rears have the most dish that Works make in the Equip series. (the supplier said he had never seen ones this size before! lol)
133mm of dish baby...YEA!

Specs:

Fronts: 15 x 8 -28 offset
Rears: 15 x 9 -66 offset (yep, -66 muhahahhahahhahahahhaha)

I finally got a chance to put one of the wheels one the back. Surprisingly they dont stick out as far as what I was thinking they were going to :lol:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

It sticks out about 70mm outside the guard roughly

Have ordered the brake kit and some suspension parts from TTT in the US, so just waiting on those parts to arrive.

Car is on hold at the moment as we are working on the gf's supra to get that all ready and running before the drag season starts over her (and also before a toyota forum megameet in 4 weeks time)

The wheels up there are Bridgestone Potenza mesh. My mate in Aust has the same type in 15x7
(are yours 15x6.5?) Coincidentally he too is running a 20V Turbo now!

I was going to say that I have done some more work on my car...but that would be a lie as I just stood there and made/drunk coffee while my mates did all the work lol
In my defense, I was out at dog training and came home to find them working hard! *so a huge thanks to them for there work!!!*

old suspension coming out to make room for shiney new suspension.

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Stalkers AE8* project long time]

Last night we dropped out the whole front suspension, swaybar etc etc and will sit down and clean that up and give it a coat of paint to look new again.

Yay for shiney stuffs!!!

Just painted the inside of the guards, and will sit down and paint the control arms etc once I pick them up from getting all the old bushes pushed out.
