    Hey all. So had so new thoughts about the project. I am no longer supercharging this car. I have found that getting an intake manifold fabricated, getting a heat exchanger installed inside that intake manifold along with the rest of the air to water intercooling system installation is extremely expensive. The supercharger is also super heavy and finding a place on the engine block to mount brackets for it isnt possible with all the ancillaries in the way. So now new plans - it will now be getting turbocharged :-D. Going that route i don't need to fabricate an exhaust manifold as i can get a turbo manifold for fairly cheap. I will them be running a garrett gt30/35 of similar. Its also much easier to intercool and takes up less space under the bonnet. I can also get more power out of it easier :-D Mac
  3. Ke30 tyre width

    Look at my build and youll see a xt130 corona modified setup. Page 7 and the last page. They are becoming extremely difficult to find and depending on what rear stud pattern you run, 5 stud hubs for the xt130 axle may be out of the question ( they are even harder to find) If you plan on running a setup like mine, the strut and brake setup per side is about 25kg (due to each caliper being 7kg!) Standard corolla maybe 10kg at most Mac.
  4. Ke30 tyre width

    Gunna say if you arent getting the car engineered then as wide as you want ie mini tubs, etc Keep in mind however, wider is not always better. The reason that there is a width limit when it comes to engineering a car is because the weight exerted on the tyres matters on how much grip said tyres will ultimately have. For example - If you have 2 cars with 225 wide tyres, one weighting 800kg and one weighting 1200kg, the heavier car is going to exert more pounds per square inch then the lighter car. And then if you go really stupid with width say 295 on a ke30, if you have a slightly grease driving surface, your car will tend to "skate" accross the surface. A decent set of 195 rs3 hankooks or similar will very likely outgrip a 245 tyre of a cheaper brand too.. The weight issue is however the biggest issue here. Regards Mac

    So i been polishing aluminium parts like crazy. The rear quarter vents are up next :-D
  6. Ke30 tyre width

    Hey mate. Are you asking how wide is LEGAL by law or how wide will fit on the car? How wide will fit the car is all dependant on how confident you are with a grinder. How wide will fit LEGALLY... well ill explain that below. Maxium width of wheel will depend on a myriad of things ie axle components used, track of the car, offset of wheel, weight of the car, etc. Max track of a veihcle can only be expended by 25mm per axle ie. 12.5mm per side. IF you can fit a wheel with massive positve offset (clearing suspension and braking components) you will be able to run wider rubber. HOWEVER, VSB14 REV NOV 2015, table LS2 states your maximum tyre size increase over standard. https://infrastructure.gov.au/roads/vehicle_regulation/bulletin/pdf/NCOP11_Section_LS_Tyres_Suspension_Steering_Nov_2015_v4.pdf With you wanting to install an SR20, I assume that you want the car engineered, but then again, maybe you don't. Feel free to WB for more info. Am going through all the engineering garbage atm so am well versed in the shit that is vehicle safety standards, I can however tell you from an engineering legallity standpoint (reguarding standard axle ke corollas), the maxium size you can go is 195/XX r15 (but i am running a hilux diff so engineers discretion can be said as my diff is wider then stock rolla by 20mm) Regards Mac

    Is that orange thing a Mclaren :-O ? Was gunna question how you got the missus in the garage working on cars. Been trying that for years.... no dice however :-( haha I couldnt get my missus working on cars for the worlds supply of diamonds. My kid is 2 however so only a matter of time till hes corrupted enough to be a garage hand :-)
  9. anybody running their rolla @ Sydney Motorsport park

    Same here mate. I'm hoping ill get mine done in the next few months. Keep me posted. We'll have a run :-D
  10. KE70- car of terrorists everywhere!

    The car of terrorists is definately a toyota.... An old hilux with a mounted gun in the tray.... but a ke70 with a roof mounted .50 cal would be sweet!!!!!!
  11. Hey mate, welcome to the club. Car is a nice find :-D For more power trawl through this article...... https://www.rollaclub.com/wiki/index.php?title=Tech:Engine/K_Series/How_to_build_a_tough_K_motor No idea bout the gearbox though ( shouldnt be hard to find a k box however, as k series engines have been used for near 60 years) and everything from starlet to liteace had k engine with various gearbox combinations. Regards macca

    Hey mate. So shockworks built these as a bit of a bitsa for me. Purchased along time ago however. They are S13 silvia top hats, on an ae86 shock kit with ke70 internal shock valving. Rear shocks slighty softer then normal shockworks items as they are being used with the original leafs and not ae86 coils. I also optioned to get the rca kit aswell cause they threw it in for $80. They are a superb company to deal with and also did the welding on the xt130 spindles that are fitted. Macca
