    ... Until I realised I didn't actually put the throw out bearing and carrier in! Lol that could have been an epic failure, but luckily I realised now. Easy fix at this point.

    Si's 5kte Ke55

    Hi Guys though it might be about time I made one of these threads! Car: 1980 ke55e (square head light front) Colour: Baby shit brown Interior: S13 front seats, sports steerer, tach, boost and oil pressure guages, kenwood deck and 4x 6"s, skull gear nob I can't get off!!!! :) Exterior: Currently 13 x 7 hotwires, 185's and 205's, earlier model ke55 bumper, character adding dents and rust patches!! Engine: Stock internal 4k, Camtecch 609 lump stick, VN Radiator. Induction: TD04-L turbo (off late model WRX) '89 mx6 front mount cooler, 32/32 DTMR-A weber in custom air box ;) Fuel system: Malpassi R/R FPR, VL Turbo fuel pump, small lift pump. No surge tank yet! Exhaust: KE70 manifold, mandrel steam pipe j-pipe, 2.5 "dump pipe" into 2 inch exhaust with quiet muffler. Drive Train: RPM Heavy duty ckutch, standard 4 speed, CIG Locker. I used to have a CT12 turbo off a 1G as some of you may know, this will now be boosting a ke70 around the streets of Adelaide. Heres some pics of the old set up.

    And with injectors/rail in, and top half of manifold on it's ready to drop in the car. Whoa!

    All new rubbers etc and into their new home. Luckily enough the RX7 550s use the same plug as the 7mge 315s, so I don't even have to change the wiring! Winning! Which isn't much of a suprise really considering both injectors use the exactly the same injector repair kit.

    Car is still at my parents so that's unfortunately not my shed. Dad's Ural in the background.

    For sure mate. I'll have some tuning to do, then run in and more tuning but hopefully going strong by Feb... Probably dreaming lol Tonight's progress: Removing spiggot bearings suck... So make a child do it! Lol Also a pic of new clutch plate. With any luck this one won't slip.

    The Rwd 2Az-Fe Thread.

    What is the actual problem with the bonnet? And how is it any worse the a big scoop, a carby or even a supercharger?

    Maybe I should since we only have 1/8 mile here now 🤔

    Looks a bit more like a motor again! Tried to bolt the manifold on this afternoon and managed to pull a stud out of the head 🤬 will have to wait until Monday now to get a helicoil for it. Once I've done that, it's manifolds on, flywheel, clutch and gearbox and back in the car! Oh and have to change the pilot bearing as it's a bit tight and crunchy.

    KE55 Build Thread

    Agreed. Mine got broken into while it's been off the road for the last 12+ months and they fucked the key barrel trying to start it..... I do wonder how long they tried though before they realised 1, it had no battery in it and 2, the big hole in the transmission tunnel indicated it has no gear box! They are stupid low life's as well! 🙄

    They are indeed. Been using them for probably over 10 years.

    Had the junior mechanic on the job. Head on, and he helped me do valve clearances. It's looking more like an engine again now. Everything has been cleaned and painted again. Then once it's back in the car I'll give the alloy a polish again. Main changes this time are; Another half mm over (now 1mm from stock) Full balance New hdcb exedy - t18 200mm kit Pulling the 315cc injectors and dropping in some 550cc, since last time it was on the dyno we maxed them at 16psi

    Binding rings

    I just gapped a set of rings for my 5k the other day. What clearance did you do them too? If you did it properly and they were fine sitting in the bores on their own then the problem must lie in the ring/piston combo! Got a set of verniers? Compare the ring depth to the groove in the piston.

    Ke-30/55 Brake Upgrade

    Wondered if you ever used those

    Ae71 distributor o'ring

    Nothing special. Just go to your local nuts and bolts store and it'll likely be a 10c fix!

    WTB ae86 coilovers and brake setup.

    I'm contemplating upgrading my brakes... What would you pay for good condition calipers, rotors and brackets? No hubs.

    Can't say it's not consistent! Make a good dial in racer

    does anyone have a 4k-c turbo manifold

    It's not like they're an off the shelf item. Maybe look into making up a j-pipe

    R31 Diff Into Ke70

    It would just need 2 leaf spring perches welded on in the right spot
