Recommended Posts

HI I'm new here but have been lurking around for some time now.

 

This is my 1980 corolla wich I have owned for 3 years now but first started to work on about a month ago.

still a working project but will hopefully finish the mechanical stuff in 2-3 weeks

 

I'm putting in a Volvo B230FK engine and m90 transmission.

With 700cc injectors and 16t volvo turbo and about 18-20psi it will be around 250+ hp

All controlled with MS3

 

I used s13 running gear in the front but with custom made lower control arms.

s13 coilovers front and rear

 

I put a 1980 hilux rear axle and vw rear brake calipers and SSangyong musso brake discs.

some pics of the process

last year I had already fitted a ca18det engine and transmission, but when I took the engine apart I realized that the engine was blown.
