some general questions on the car i will buy
I have some general questions from an ae86 i will get next week: Thumbs up!

*The engine in the car was not black blue i expected it to be but it was red & black with tvis.
As far as i know this was never in an ae86 and i cant find alot of information about it.Is this a bigport redtop then?
The power is rated at 91kw on the papers

*The grill on the front of the car looked different and had yamaha? written on it like this:

I can't remember it ever coming with a grill like this,anyone know from where te grill comes?(im guessing it is to let more air come into the bay but why is yamaha written on it)
here another example,beginning video

I think its a redtop like you said yourself.

And yes those grills do exist with Toyota on it... but Yamaha? I dont know about that... maybe somebody put that on there for fun like I had a Cadillac emblem on my vauxhall back in the day to trick people...
Funny thing is - it worked! Since I blacked out the car and made it look stealthy hahaha.

Grill comes from an early ae86 aka 'zenki'.
Maybe they put a 'yamaha' logo in the grill for a joke or referring to the yamaha designed 4age cylinderhead.

Sagging bumper can be easily fixed . My bumper is held up by zipties at the sides (Dorifto yo) Tongue

This is zenki grill, kouki bumper headlights and sidelights
Standard stuff, most of the stuff fits together with no problem.

If it got TVIS it's a bigport. It might be out of an early fwd corolla or mr2

Hi thanks for the answers,must have been swapped then.
Are those worse or better than the bluetops,im hoping he did some engine tuning Smile

I wont touch the grill then since it gives better air in engine, maybe just remove the yamaha letterings,looks odd.

Another question i have:
He has some cheap TRD Spark Plug Wires,are those better or just branding with no real difference?

Isn't the redtop better because it's 7ribs ?

It is but realisticly most aren't even close to the powerlevel where it makes a difference.
