    KE35 Build

    It is manual gearbox. Great, mine should be black to match the rest of the interior. What prices are we talking about for the console + shipping? No, not yet. The engine came out of the car so I don't know if it runs or not. I'm currently stripping it down for paint and I only work on the car on weekends. The car is currently as in the picture. Next weekend I will be removing the front struts and will sand and paint the underbody of the car with chassis paint.

    Chestikoph Sr20Det Ke55 Coupe

    New power distribution/fuse board and gear shifter cover. Also added an inline brake pressure switch to activate brake lights, the Tilton pedal box doesn't have the facility to run a mechanical switch. Another issue I had was the roll cage section that went through the firewall to the strut tower used the original wiring loom hole, so more metal had to be removed to accomodate the loom.

    KE35 Build

    Is your KE35 a manual or auto gearbox ? The consoles are a bit different. Heaps of them here in Aussie. Off memory, there are only two basic colours. Black or Beige. They are bulky but quite light, so maybe posting one over to you in Portugal could be a better option, & give you more time to get on with other things. Have you had the engine running as yet ? Cheers Banjo

    KE35 Build

    Thank you! I'm located in Portugal. I'm sure more questions will arise, and I will keep you posted on the progress I make. BTW, I'm having a hard time finding a center console for the car here in Portugal and I though that I can 3D print one. What do you think? If some one could provide me pictures and measurements of it I could do it, and I could provide the model to however wants to do the same.

    KE35 Build

    Hello everyone, I bought a decent KE35 that you can see in the picture. The car came as a body and a pile of parts inside, it is almost completely disassembled. Despite its looks its in really good condition, at least in terms of the body as it has no rust. The previous owner did a poor job painting the car, it is full of blisters and cracks in the paint. I am an amateur in mechanics but it was always my dream to own a classic corolla, I know almost every part that is in the car but some parts I have no idea where they are from so I would like you to help me out. For starters, what are those parts you can see in the picture? Hope you can help me out.

    Chestikoph Sr20Det Ke55 Coupe

    Thanks Matt, I don't know how long it will stay this clean though!! I have done a heap in this last month, as I get a chance I will post up some more pics. I wasn't entirely happy with the original pedal box mount i made, it had I bit too much movement for my liking, considering I am not using a booster there is going to be a lot more pedal effort required and I don't want any flex at all in the mount. So I re made it a lot beefier but still easy to remove a master cylinder or the pedal box with out stripping the whole dash. Ideally I should have incorporated it to the cage, oh well next rebuild. Also mounted the brake fluid reservoir where the booster used to sit.

    Ke17 Sprinter

    Haven't been working on this much, been working on other cars or house stuff mostly. Going to re-do brakes to include a ke20 brake proportioning valve to see if it improves them. My coilovers are finished and just need to sort the camber tops now. They've had 4" cut out of the strut tubes to accept short stroke gas inserts which are 100mm shorter in total. Changed the top of the strut body to ke55 so they have external gland nuts making it easier to get the shocks out later on. Hsd weld on sleeve kit fitted also. Pretty happy with them size wise, at 4" lower than stock they're fully captive with the helper spring. Adjustable range is between 2-5" lower than factory so plenty of room to play with ride height.

    Daphne the ZRE182

    So we've managed now to roll over a good 6 months before resisting the temptation to do any modifications (wife at least wanted it to get to the first service completely stock, and OEM floor mats/boot liner/weathershields don't count as mods in my book). First thing on the cards was to give it a little more oomph in the noise department, however one problem about the Aus-spec ZRE182 is that the exhaust system is different from the ZRE186 that most of the world got (due to torsion-beam vs IRS) which means tracking down aftermarket parts can be quite exhausting (pun intended). However, it does actually share a lot of things in common with the previous model ZRE152 (including suspension and exhaust), and by sheer coincidence someone was selling a 152 TRD axleback (that they had on a 182 so I knew it would fit) - couldn't say no to that. After a few weeks of sitting in my mate's shed (too far for me to pick up and too expensive to post) I finally got my hands on it, only to then have to jet off to China for work for two weeks, only getting back less than 24 hours before I had to leave again for Toyotafest. Took another 2 weeks before I managed to jag a break in both my schedule and the weather, but fortunately as far as mods go this was probably the easiest I have ever done (2 bolts and one rubber exhaust hanger). by Ian Rigby, on Flickr Comparison between the stock axleback and the TRD unit - interestingly the TRD muffler is actually smaller, and the exhaust tip sticks out quite a bit further (which is good since the stock one is hidden way up behind the bumper). The TRD tip sits quite low too, no doubt to take in to account the TRD bodykit for the ZRE152 (which obviously the 182 doesn't have) - only really stands out if you're looking dead level at it, from head height or one the road it looks fine. Sounds is nicely improved without being intrusive or obnoxious, and would easily pass even current stupidly stringent noise tests. Most noticeable off the line as well as during engine-braking and coming to a stop, very little booming or resonance at highway speeds which is also nice (always worse in a hatchback) and at some speeds/engine-loads you can barely tell it is there. Next step is probably some kind of lowering, but that'll probably have to wait until bonus-time next year.

    Looking for recommendations

    Ah- you're 20years tooo late! This guy- http://www.theroaringseason.com/showthread.php?1596-Jamie-Aislabie/page3 Jamie not only built his own sports cars & raced them, but he built rally car motors for everyone else. I worked for him for a few months back in '86 when I returned to NZ. Even then he had turbo'd his wife's Honda Prelude and fitted it with water injection to stop the detonation. If he's still around he will have more knowledge on building old engines than anyone ese I know. Try the old age homes but don't tell him I said that! haha! Looks like he's still going! https://kartsportrotorua.nz/committee/

    Looking for recommendations

    Hi team, First time post here so let me know if I’m doing this right.. basically I’m wondering if any members here are able to point me in the right direction for a tuning/carby specialist shop in the Rotorua/BOP area. Might be a long shot but worth a try. I’m currently battling with my 4k build and hit a brick wall with the finer points of fuelling and breathing. Main points of interest on engine are - 1mm bored block/oversize pistons. 3k head with 20 thou skim. Wade 140 cam. Lightened flywheel. My current work schedule and being overseas has meant that I haven’t even touched the car in 3 months or so. And I can’t even remember where I left off, so pretty much wanting someone to come solve all my problems for me haha cheers

    Need help wiring sr20det Into ke55 corolla

    Hey Nathan, i fitted the same motor into my ke55 a few years ago now and did the wiring in the conversion, I have some notes I took at home, I will see if I can dig them out for you. I have a couple of photos I took of the relay board that may help, this is just for the engine management side of the harness. i am running the factory ECU with a Nistune daughter board With the factory boost control system I wouldn't bother with it, just go after market
  27. Toyota 7k EFi motor out of a Townace. Brought it to put into my corolla but decided to keep it stock. Comes with all the parts shown in the photo. Motor was said to be in good condition with around 150000km. Turns over nicely with alot of compression. No ECU or Injectors. $550 SC12 Supercharger off an MR2 Toyota. Front pulley clutch has been removed and replaced with a normal pulley. Comes with parts in the photos, turns freely and with no play at all. Quite heavy, prefer pickup but can post, will cost around $40 I believe. $320

    Need help wiring sr20det Into ke55 corolla

    OK, so you don't need the air con or neutral circuits. It seems the battery permanently powers the injector resistors, the ECCS relay, the rad fan relay, the AAC valve and terminals #46 & 109 Ignition adds the coil, the wastegate solenoid, the fuel pump relay, the check engine light & terminals #36 & #34. Is that how it looks to you?
