Brennan's, ke70 Corolla, 3sge Beams powered.
Posted 20 November 2011 - 01:13 PM
Anyways, i bought this mint as ke70 gl (minus 4k and box, but only 110,000kms?) of a mate at the start of the year, after i sold my white 4age ke70 and felt very depressed
it has sat in the shed under cover since, while i have completed my engineering course, that is now over and i am about to start a full time job, and i am itching to get in and start this project.
Plans at this stage are:
-altezza Beams 3sge with 6 speed, maybe quad throttle bodies
-wilwood brakes and pedels
-big suspension upgrade, sway bars, ajustables etc.
-clean shaven engine bay
-boso inspired pipes
-front lip spoiler
-and probly much more...
Quick concept chop of what i hope it looks like:
In the last week i started building this mould for a front lip spoiler/splitter for the ke70 and should hopefully be going into production soon.

Also email me on email@example.com if you are after one

found out the other draughtman at work has a mx5 subframe, diff etc, sitting in his garage, that he was going to use in his lotus 7 replica. got me the measurements and its 1500 from hub face to hub face.
So if the dx live axel is 1410ish then its only 45mm per side wider.
i am hoping that by time i get some camber on it the top should be a little less than 45mm to wide.
only downside i can see is if i want to give drifting a go at a track, the rear camber wont work in my favor.

And it is not even close to fitting. Would have to cut quite a bit into the back seat and chassis to work.
So I am after a ae86 diff I suppose.

Also received the donation of some rims today.
Just what i wanted, plan is to widen the outer lip, for an overall width of 9-9.5 inches,
powdercoat in white or maybe black. and stretch on some decent tyres.

Made some lifting points to attach to engine hoist. and drop it in for the first time tomorrow.

Ended up with
So stoked. Fits so mint!
Just need to cut some of the tunnel out to get the gear box in
Was not expecting it to take only a day to get it in.

Tomorrow is to fill in the tunnel, where it has been cut out.
Then modify the cable clutch, and send off to the electricians?
Still Need a diff! anything lsd and solid axel. Will shorten if i have to.
Also found this photo, thinking of powder coating the sigma rims white once they have been widened (anybody know of an engineer in Manawatu that widens steel rims? other wise will have to go down to wellington.

but nothing what so ever.
Ended up at a volvo wrecker down in the ashhurst and measured up a rear diff of sum of the older ones and got about 1390-1430 so pretty dam perfect. No lsd's in stock though.

also think i may have sorted a diff, looking at a dana 30 out of a volvo, its the exact width needed, has big discs, and best of all apparently it can take one of these
Or even a air locker which could be fun.

brought a aluminum Evo 6 radiator that will hopefully fit tomorrow
Also talked to the auto electrician and there is doubt that the Altezza ecu will be able to be wired up to run the engine with out the dash cluster etc etc. so may need a link g4? And if I go that way and spend that much will be going with itb's, argh.
Anyone know of any beams 3sge conversions that have worked with factory ecu? Cheers

Decided to go with some independent throttle bodies.
Got some silvertop itb's thanks to Fliboi.
My Personal Pattern Maker (father) is keen to make some Beams to 4age itb manifolds out of cast aluminum.
this will also allow more room for the clutch master cylinder, and the brake master, not that it really needs it.
some inspiration since i dont like picture less updates

My new silver top quads also turned up also thanks to fliboi. Now to make some cast manifolds.
Posted 16 June 2012 - 04:49 PM
Also made the first mockup for the itb manifold and fitted,

Really like the look and price and what i have read about hsd coilovers.
So get some Ae86 ones for it? (i have read the steering arms may need to be changed to work? Anything else? what about the back spring mounts?
OR cut the ke70 springs a little and get some heavy duty short stroke shocks??
Leaning towards the HSD's as long as i dont have to search the country for ae86 parts to make them work.
Also looking towards cressida front brake setup anybody know if these will be able to be adapted to the ae86/ke70.
