  2. Does anyone know what wire I need to try and re-do this sender?
  3. Not heaps to update! Engine bay has been fully stripped ready to be resprayed and the whole underside of car has been coated and resprayed black. Currently making a gearbox crossmember to suit my K-T50 setup At this stage still playing with ride height and wheel fitment before paint Pretty happy with how it sits
  4. Yesterday
  5. Thanks for your help mate. I've left a msg for toymods! Appreciate your help.
  6. Hey Dave, I never exactly left, I just didn’t sign in all the time 😊
  7. Last week
  8. Drove the car up to Maryborough over the weekend. It went perfect. Did some longer range highway economy numbers. 14.33klm/litre over 471ks (6.97 litres per 100klm). Consumed 32 litres. Very happy and on par with some earlier tests. Gives me a range of 645klm between fills on highway driving. Around town I got 9.6klm/litre from the last tank. Had a party with some mates on the Saturday night, stayed in his apartment, which is an old shop front in the main street, converted into a loft type dwelling. Its awesome. Such a big open space, awesome old brick walls, and hardwood floors, the things decorated in the brutalism style, which is his old mans taste, but works really well there.
  9. Can't quite work out how the exhaust header gets routed to the other side of the engine ? Surely not under the sump ? The bit on top of the carby, looks like something out of the Wizzard of Oz. I thought it was the Tin-Man ? Glaring error there, not being able to add oil, unless the intake "Bunnings System", is completely removed. Would like to see a utube video with sound, of it running ! At first I thought this was a joke, but then I noticed the oil feed to the turbo bearing. Cheers Banjo
  10. Been a while since I really did anything on this, have accumulated a lot of parts that I wanted for it but in that time the paint has turned to s#*t. Well here’s today’s efforts:
  11. Wanting a ke30 dashtop in good condition
  12. Just looking for rear side markers can’t seen to find them anywhere, looking for a good site to order bulbs and the covers for side markers and maybe some of the components for my quad headlight conversion
  13. Danyon


    Has anyone put a hks muffler on a ke30? If so how was the sound difference?
  14. To get classic/historic registration in NSW you need to be a registered member of an affiliated club (and by club I mean an actual club, not an online forum). If you're in Sydney, and willing to be an active member of the club I'd recommend Toymods (their information can be found HERE), conversely I highly recommend staying away from Whitmore as they are known to be dodgy. Otherwise you'll need to look around your local area for an affiliated club (unless you're out in the boonies there are usually several around) and go through whatever procedure they require.
  15. Hi guys, I'm trying to get my car registered as a classic/historic car. The RMS has asked for a declaration that the car fits its requirements. I have a granny spec KE20. Can anyone help out with the next steps? Chris
  16. I also have bought that key from ebay and with the help of frisco locksmith, i cut and program the key. Cost was reasonable and service was prompt.
  17. This turned out nice !!its a credit to you ,love it 👍 rob
  18. Earlier
  19. Looks like hillbilly horsepower. It would be cool if it did run you could head down to Bunnings for a turbo kit.
  20. Well it doesn't look like it would actually run very well... because there's nothing done to the fuel system.
  21. Is that really poly pipe and duct tape? 🤨
  22. Yer i am always amused by drifters in QLD removing the AC for the sake of a few HP. for gods sake its 40 degrees, put the AC on! haha Great story on the car though, lots of cool unique parts by they sounds of it. Carbon roof, delicious.
  23. Everyone needs a runabout to help preserve their baby so here's one for you $800 with rego to Jan, 2001 corolla ascent. Has a bluetooth head unit but that's about all that's attractive about it. Body is not great, has had some interaction with fixed objects and I touched it up the bumper once with Supercheap paint that was meant to be colour matched. When I put the bumper back on found out it was the wrong shade. 5 spd still feels ok. 212,000km, cam belt changed at 196,000 Clutch is starting to slip under high load and the check engine light is on. I haven't the time nor enthusiasm to fix the little issues. Was my daily until I got my Crown PM me if interested
  24. He asked and apparently they ran ac on the track cause it was so hot drifting and racing in summer over there that they just gave up the 5 hp to have it.
  25. I believe Jamie is the second owner since tec arts sold it locally in Japan. The Japanese owner before him had held on to it, and maintained it pretty well, until ultimately auctioning it during a slow week at the Japan auctions. Jamie got a good deal on it, got it here, and noticed some things about the car, started researching and ended up finding out it was a parts research car for tec arts. Apparently used to test things that would ultimately be produced or go onto Tsuchiyas car, or the Purple tech arts car that everyone knows. Hes actually been able to find out a lot from tec arts, and corresponds with them about what is and isn't original to the car, and is kind of putting it back to original, restoring and cleaning and detailing and just making it what it is, a pretty cool and historic AE86 with a really well researched setup. Its got a straight cut T50, 4.6LSD, Takao Special 7ag, which is not the 7ag we know in Australia, but one of their 1.6 litre NA build recipes with 20v itbs, ae92 engine, and their own cam spec and headwork. Makes about 195 HP, revs to 11200 or something retarded like that. Jamie took me around in it after the show and warmed it up and just dumped it to kind of demo the response, and it just rocketed like no 4age I've ever experienced. Chatted for a while and we ended up taking each others car for a ride around the lot. So much unique stuff, like hand fabricated aluminium tig welded front bar mounts, carbon roof, concealed bracing inside the car. Its got electric mirrors, all the skirts and air conditioning, most of the interior, and weighs well under 900 kgs, so its almost 200 kgs under what a GT APEX edition should weigh. High rise exhaust manifold, lexan rear window, glass guards, bonnet and hatch. Has a really cool manually adjustable rev limit so you can decide not to pull 11200 if you get excited. Surprisingly it had a smooth cold idle, that became lumpier as it got warmer. Its tidy overall, and you cant really tell at first glance what the roof and guards are made of, it still looks like a pretty legit original Panda as much as it can.
