  1. heres a question for you do you, or can you get $15000 to do this project?
  2. ok, thats pretty high only ones i know of running that high often are dry sumped. and blueprinted. in single seaters. yes you will need a new ECU and a good one. what you are talking about is a pretty $$ project.....
  3. yes lots no... but unless you have made some good mods ot the motor, your just wasting time and $$ also use the silvertop ones, the blacktop ones are too big.... how big? TRD use them on their 3SGE's.....
  4. yes you will find that most TRD shock are made by tokico, with some others by KYB and bilstein you will also find that another tokico/kyb shock will not have the same valving as the TRD ones. you have to be very carfeul with superlow springs there is a reason king state they are not for road use....
  5. what kind of power and revs you planning? the crank rods and valves will handle a LOT doing the prep right is the important thing. THE biggest thing you MUST make sure of is the balancing, and the balancing of the oil pump and front pulley. i have seen a few 2zzs die due to aftermarket crank pulley kits. they arent balanced right and set up harmonics through the crank. this causes the oil pump to fail and then its good bye motor
  6. how about a set of zzw30 wheels? they look AWESOME on AW11's.
  7. the shocks will fit other tophats in fact I'm pretty sure all toyota strut tops are of the same design
  8. heres a handy cross reference page: http://trdparts.jp/english/list_shock-cartridge.html http://trdparts.jp/english/parts_shock.html
  9. that sounds correct, ae86 and ke70 are the same. can't comment on the xt130 as we didnt get those here but i reckon the struts wil be the same the top hates will probably differ, but will fit the ke70/ae86 shock
  10. ae86 should fit i used TRD inserts in my AA63 struts you'll fint that there will only be about 2 different diameters for toyota struts around that time. so with the use of spacers you have a MASSIVE choice
  11. yep, you could call it that! its a bit dodgy.. they done have latch! just a spring loaded ball detent, slam on the brakes, and it falls forward! it'll most of its time folded flat
  12. ok, a bit late but heres a pic of the side windows side window open phase one is now complete, barring paper work. cert guy coming wedensday, all going well tll be road legal the following wedensday :)
  13. so its a bit more of a challenge, get to it!! :) also theres no reason why you can't leave it as is and run a duct. though youd have to look into clearances
  14. premix shouldnt affect it like that! maybe it had seperated and the oil wasnt mixed in? back when i was at school my best mate raced go karts, after every meeting any left over fuel would go into his kp60. avgas with 2 strike oil, it was the worlds fastest kp60 :)
  15. they still do it. and its a tin..... how much is a half pint?
  16. people have run 14psi on a stock bluetop fine its ALL in the tuning. are you using a tunable ecu? if not then i think your limited to about 5psi, i can't remember how tolerable of boost the 4age map sensor is. the gze head gasket is the same as the 4age gasket. if you want a thinker head gasket, use 2 TRD ones. they are multi layer steel, you can add and remove sheets. but you wont need to do that. my aw11 ran 8psi on stock redtop bigport for years. it used the 4agze ecu.
  17. same way you make a 4age intake rwd. haha yeah itll be some effort, but itll be worth it for a project.
  18. :) unfortunatly any efi conversion wont be "cheap and easy" converting a 4age to rwd is just the same as doing a 4age. just for a daily driver i reckon a 4afe makes more sense. you need to do things like convert fuel system to efi etc if you want a project, a 4afe would be a good one. a 7afe even better. but the cheapest and easiest option would be to fix the carb...
  19. Q1, may i suggest a 4age? just kidding!! :) however, what about a 4afe?. i damn near did it in my ke70. however wiring scares me ;) for the effort i think thats a better option than trying to EFI the sohc 4a. Q2, i got two but I'm over here :y: Q3, no :( Q4, yes Q5, clutch booster? :P Q6, 42
  20. 3sge from a tezza will take a bit of fititng though will be fast however!! make sure you get a manual engine if you go that way.
  21. personally, i wouldnt use kings normal range of springs for anything other than a paper weight. they have a bad habit of listing srings to suit a car based on fitment only, not taking into account weight etc, even if the cars are 400kg different. i have found them to be in consistant in quality anf prone to sagging. made worse by one set of four, not always behaving the same!!
  22. no its not. the ae95 uses the E57. the GT4S use E15# series. theres quite a few differences. i think the main worry strenght wise is the transfer case.
  23. id forget the turbo nissan motor. for the hassle and $$$ its just not worth it. thats a $$$ conversion there.... 4agze would be a better idea, but i think youll find the 4afe fine
  24. sounds like he means the shift detent springs whats your problem exactly?
