    BLZBUB has another 4AGE.

    Preservation of life is a big motivator. A lot of the service/repair stuff was completed over 3 days when I went to inspect a belt squeal. I just kept finding shit that needed to be done. The further I went it was just easier to fix more seeing as I'd already pulled shit off to repair that was blocking access it lol. One of the front tyres has a leak. Dam it. Oh well I'll take the front wheels off, put the 15x8 zero from the rears on the front and whack the 15x9 zero spare pair I got when I bought this set , that have never been fitted, on. Might need a bit more hammering, both front and rear. The pair on the front at the moment are not the same make as the other 4. Definitly not as well made as the others. Pretty sure the 4 good ones were made in the early days of rep wheels, they definitly have a much more refined, well made feel and finish.

    Is my engine worth selling on its own?

    What is wrong with the rest of the car? Is it a GTi ?Do u have pics? Where are u located?
  4. Hi guys, first time here, I hope this is the right place to ask this question. My car has had a bunch of problems since I bought it ~2 years ago and its current one is the final straw for me. I've loved driving it but there's just been too many hassles. I bought it for $2.5k and I don't think it will be worth it to fix it, roadworthy it and sell it, along with all the paperwork that's involved with all that. I just want to get rid of it and move on to my next vehicle. So I have an AE92 Corolla with a 4AGE engine, which I understand is the sports model. Would the engine, or any other individual parts of the car for that matter, be worth selling on their own before scrapping the rest of it? Thanks for reading, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this sort of thing.
  5. oh what a nissan feeling!

    Matts Ke30......sr20det

    While i have the engine out of the car i decided it's time to fit the scatter shield to the gearbox. No chance, no room. My tunnel is stocko except for the bellhousing area that was slightly modified. So yeah the right time to create the clearance required while the motor is out. So that's where I'm up to.

    7k Sprinter Build

    Exhaust is done. Flanged at extractors and above diff. 2" straight through with one muffler. Went 2" so i can re-use it with the 7k. Due to the bigger ke70 gearbox and the xmember there was no room to tuck it through the gap so he went around. This actually works out better though as i won't have issues when the car see's a t50. And still tons of clearance from exhaust to ground also.

    4K Twin Cam

    Well don't keep us in suspense who has it ????

    4K Twin Cam

    Those would be 3KR engines. Twin cam, crossflow, 180hp, 9700rpm beasts. Apparently they were used in factory supported racing divisions. No idea if those specs are accurate or even anywhere near true, but there is enough info around to lend credence to it.

    Boingk's KE20

    Yeah bought the Aussie one. Not a fan of water-heated manifolds though, they get enough exhaust heat in this sort of setup to solve most problems after about 3 minutes of driving time. Couldn't see if it was broken in the picture, may have been a different manifold you were referring to?

    BLZBUB has another 4AGE.

    I've owned that thing for a decade now. Lol. So updates. I did nothing for ages. Then motivation hit me when everything broke. So like every corolla I went to fix one thing and ended up fixing nearly everything. DF brake hardline cut off. Front soft brake hoses fouling. All coilover strut top bolts loose. Fluid change Tighten all filler bolts Wire fog lights to dash switch Install washer bottle Reroute p/s lines, solid mount resevoir Timing belt tensioner Dipstick O ring Solid mount catch can Route spark plug leads correctly Fixed rear water pump coolant weep Removed alternator and mount. Remounted with the correct bolts and the correct amount. 4 instead of 2. Refabbed the pull style p/s into push instead of the belt being stretched on. Replaced the spare wheel bracket holding the P/s pump on with the correct size bolt Mounted the water pump pulley correctly Spaced out the unused aircon bracket that needs to be there for the p/s pump mount for p/s pump alignment, used correct and right amount of bolts, same with p/s bracket. Replaced oil pressure sender Full stereo system Ducktail spoiler from an s14 Roof racks for swag Bled the brakes Tapped the threaded engine mount hole and bolted it down Fixed the loose battery terminals New remote locking controller Guard work 15x8 +25 15x8 zero Work Equip o3 reps 195/50 atr sport Pumped stock guards, stock camber Can't find pics of everything sorry lol.

    Overheating?

    Oh lordy. Its been a while since i price checked the escorts but they have jumped even more. My mates older brother bought a brand new black rs2000 turbo one of 200 i think. It was scary fast and he would drive it on the limit all the time. If it still exists it would be worth some bucks now.

    That car knew something I didn't, and is laughing at me now......

    Bloody hell Pete ! You should put this story down, & get it printed in a paperback. It would become a best seller. I'm trying to think of a suitable title. How about, the car telling the story. How about "My Life as an Escort" . That should get an initial kick off in sales. Actually, talking about paperbacks; I was given a paperback 10 days ago, called The Cockoo's Egg, which is a true story by Clifford Stoll. The paperback was first published in the late 1980s, & recounts how the initial hacking of computers took place in the USA, and how they detected it. Sounds boring I know, but the writing style, & true substance was intriguing, and I couldn't put the book down for about 5-6 hours. Unbelievably good read. Cheers Banjo

    Overheating?

    Later on we had broken up. Then someone crashed into it as she went through an intersection. Her girlfriend calls me to console her and we got back together. Meanwhile the car gets towed away to a crash repair place where the insurance wrote it off. Last we heard, the repairer bought it off her to become the works loan car. Maybe he knew something and has a warehouse full of cars destined to explode in value. I hated the bloody thing
