Put my new camshaft in. It has a higher lift and really makes the engine come to live after 5500rpm were it lost all it´s flow before.

its a turbo camshaft from ipdusa.

 

here you can see the difference on the new and old cam

mostly been driving this thing for the past weeks.

Except a head gasket change, new clutch with a heavier pressure plate. Putting in the heater element. New rear wheel bearings.

Making a oil catch can, and some other smaller stuff :P

 

here are a few pics of it in action

Lovely ride mate :)

 

Just a quick question if you wouldnt mind;

What coilovers are you using?

edit: and how tall are the tubes you made for the coilover mounts in the rear?

 

Currently building a 1980' ke70 myself :) though with a sr20, and a volvo rear axle :)

thanks :)

I'm using s13 200sx coilovers because the front struts are from a 200sx ;)

I can measure the tubes but it wouldnt help much unless you are using the same setup. And I also made the brackets on the rear axle.

The way I did this, I put the coilovers in the highest position and bolted them on to the axle and mocked the rear axle under the car with wheels with room to lower it. And measured from there how long the tubes should be.

as for updates, broke the volvo transmission. So I'm fabricating a 6 speed BMW ZF transmission on the back of the volvo engine. with a 6 puck copper clutch and heavy duty sachs pressure plate.

 

Got a fairly unused Turbo from a Evo X and will be fabricating that in there also.

 

and probably a rollcage for the season.

 

But this thing has been stealing time from the KE70 past few months :)

 

2tc with t50 and twin webers 9 and 11" wheels. pretty fun making this one

Well, I planned to do a little makeover on the rolla last winter because the body was really getting rusty and I really don't want to see it go any further with rust damage.

 

Also built a full roll cage in this process.

 

And by a complete accident put my volvo engine up for sale and sold it the same night.

 

The plan was to buy a 1jz and squeeze it in there but, went with a 2jz instead.

A borg Warner s360, 1000cc bosch injectors. And a 6 speed bmw gearbox conversion.

 

So an accidental complete rebuild of the car was suddenly in progress.

 

Here are a couple of pic that show the process

and a couple shots of the angle, still got a bit of travel left in my steering rack. But have to make new control arms to make room for it.
