Awesome man, keen to see the motor built!

 

You aren't the only one!!

After having a bone standard 4A-GE big port in my KE30, a reasonably standard 4A-GE big port in my AE86 I cannot wait to drive a 4A-GE small port that has massive cams, a complete head job, a light flywheel, good set of extractors and also having it on a standalone ECU :-D

That seems like the best part of the specs haha. Why is the competitor in Chinese? Seems almost like a dodgy ripoff filter?

 

Edit: The image was just translated from Japanese and those kanji characters are just the remains

Yeah it's all good. it came with an invoice from Toyota itself so no dodgy rip off.

 

It lends a sporty feel to the engine compartment. rip off or not, what more could you possible want from an oil filter.

This is also quite dandy, really good at seeing into the oil galleries and collecting all the bad bits.

Yes. It isn't a factory colour, those panels have been resprayed in their time in Japan at some point. 

I'll get it colour matched to it though as i love the colour. Seeing the guards, bonnet and 1/2 the front end that turquoise blue it definitely got the vote from me too.
