The japanese ECU will assume you are using the better japanese fuel i believe. i think i read somewhere that it was 100 octane.


Jamesrolla: what is the number for those pedders springs? what is the ride height like?

I had a set of new looking Pedders Ke20 lowered springs which are #2222 (which pedders website lists for my car) which i got off a wreck i bought, HOWEVER, when i took them to pedders to get installed (when i got shocks and wheel alignment), they didn't fit into either set of strut tops i had. ANYONE else had this problem? the bloke just said that ke25 and ke26 must have different struts. Is this true because i thought the '20, '25 and '26 all had the same front end.

Members dont see this ad

mines got ta22 celica front struts that have been made so that you can wind them up and down using the standard springs and seats etc, they arent really coilovers but they are like standard ones that are adjustable, i don't know the numbers of any of it, they came in the ke30 2 door i bought as a donar car for my ke20, got lots of old school performance goodies on it,

when i paint the ke20 it will probably just be a plain colour, i was also looking at a colour that came on morris minors, its a light blue colour and i think it would look bloody nice on it with the black bits,


i havnt got anymore pics of the ke20 yet, but its just an early one with the small tail lights


cheers james

Name: Sam


Car: 1974 KE20


Motor & Driveline: Twin Charged 4AGZE (GT28RS + SC12)


Suspension & Brakes: Secret


Wheels & Tyres: 13 Jellybeans


Interior: Retrimed Grey (not vinal)


Body: Fully seam welded front to back, Baked 2 pak metallic dark blue with purple pearl


Other: Currently swapping bits into it from my 3rd owner granny KE20. Reclining buckets are mounted. I expect it ready for rego in 2-3 weeks.


Funny storey, I bought this KE20 years ago as a project car from a long time loving family. I stripped it and bought a 4AGZE front cut but got side tracked and put the ZE into my AE85 Trueno. Eventually I sold the engine and the KE20 to a panelbeater 3 or 4 years ago. I bought it back last week, with the ZE mounted and fresh bare metal paint job. Not long now and it will live again.
