2Gr-Fe 3.5L V6 Ae86
Posted 09 March 2012 - 10:07 AM
I bought it for $500 bucks with a stuffed engine and mags. Blew the 1st engine up, and beat around with another 4ac, even went to my 1st track day with it.
Now a 6 years later, it now has:
Toyota Aurion 2GR-FE
Custom Chromoly 3S-GTE Flywheel and clutch
Locked Hilux diff
STEERING, SUSPENSION AND BRAKE
Front and rear whiteline swaybars, springs and shocks
Whiteline tower brace
Custom rear strut brace/ harness mount
NP Wonder knuckles
Wilwood front brakes
S13 rear brakes
Whiteline Rear Traction Brackets
from the front seats back - gone
Fibreglass fixed back bucket
Driver and passenger 4 point harness
Bond's 6-point cage
VTX copy kit
Fibreglass vented bonnet
Pics of motor going in
How it looks now
I've fitted a cage, Willwoods, modded the sump and made up some headers
These should help me stop nicely
Modded the sump to fit
Got some new knuckles for more lock
Starting to feel the crunch now!
Its getting there though.
After trying out a few pipe designs, we figured that this layout wouldn't work:
This one would work a little better I think...
Putting theory into practice:
One side done!
Rinse and repeat for the other side!
Not too shabby at out first crack at headers in my mates tin shed
Yeah flat torque curve
Going for grip in this one

- In the wet, it'll happily smash limiter in 4th anywhere you like, and almost pull fifth around turn 12
- In the dry, it runs out of revs in third and the RPM drop to fourth means I have to straighten up before I can get enough speed to turn 4th sideways... damn fast though
We're going to lift the limiter to 8000rpm to see what she'll do

We took about 700ml out of the sump, but fitted an oil cooler and lines to make up for it.
We've got planes to build a dry-sump setup for it in the near future anyway

Very nice! Also where are you located? Would like to see this thing out on the track!

If you walk away from your car and don't look back, you bought the wrong car.

Upcoming events will be:
Motorkhana in Canberra on the 18th
Heading to Raleigh drift comp on the 1st
Then the next weekend is Toynats in Dubbo and hopefully the IDA day in Wakefield on Monday
...this is all pending whether I can string enough cash and rubber together
