  1. I havn't updated this for a long time... Alot has changed... So the SR20 is running - slowly getting better, still isn't as great as I thought it would be ( slower than the 16V 4A i've got in TE31 ) Did some extremely hori wiring up of some fans before the Annual Nostalgic meet. Brendan at niteparts installed the Tomei 270 procams I bought, and uprated valve springs. Runs a Go fast bits light weight underdriven crank pulley and now it isn't running so rich that its fouling and stuffing spark plugs in less than 100k's... Had my wheels pulled off, stripped and powder coated again. Have ground down my cam cover and am going to shock blast it at work... Am trying to retrofit a spoiler from the 80's onto it, not having much luck at the moment, have tried S13 and 86 ones... They could be used - but would have to cut up so much of the AE86 spoiler it wouldn't be worth my time... Still got a lightweight flywheel ( weighs 5kg ) to install, and have started...
  2. ^ lol..... I don't think there is any other word to describe the last two post...
  3. PLUS YOU'VE got to have a licence... Might be worth it if you could buy heaps and then on sell somehow?
  4. If you were getting NOS from us at BOC for $600 you were getting a sweet deal... Just looked it up for you ( you will need a license to buy from us - ie a legit workshop etc ) $2051 + GST. That's for a "G" size cylinder which is our large ones... there is a chap over in East Tamaki that does fills ( he buy's our cylinders and then fills smaller ones for bikes etc ) that might be the best way about it, as obviously you'd be charged for rental on that G which is over $20 a month as well.
  5. bit of a bump... // Got wiring left to go, general tidy up ( scrape off the stupid plastidip ) decide on a wheel colour and get powdercoated + start playing around with the fibreglass pieces and ae92 bumper. Trying to decide on a colour to dye the TA63 celica seats as well either thinking grey or black to suit door cards..
  6. I thought I might update this... So the car got pink stickered around august 2014, for the guards rubbing into the rear tyres... So its pretty much been sitting around since then. I've managed to go through a few different setups for it, including a 20V with SamQ rwd kit + coil on plugs, now a SR20DE on twin sidedrafts. Basically, i've had the lower control arms cut and welded so I can get the camber somewhere towards the factory settings. Wrecked a Ka67 carina wagon, which had a mint uncracked dash and a few other bits and pieces I used. Wrecked a TA63 Celica hatch and notch, pilfered parts including the turbo front seats, the bigger front sway bar. Removed the electric fender mirrors and sold to Nathan on here. Had some springs made up for the rear end, hilux shocks modded and fitted. Adjustable pan hard rod made up. Full new exhaust. Had a driveshaft loop made up, Radiator mounts, Engine mounts and gearbox crossmember and a driveshaft made up. The SR20DE is out of a S14 with 40mm dellorto's which came out of a escort rally car, the carb's came with the ignition and fuel setup/ some groovy extractors. I also bought a spoiler off of Sheepers months ago to try cut and lengthen as a basis. I've also chucked on some BR's which are 15x9 -20 offset, and a 15x8 0 offset. I've recently just bought some "wide body" rear flares which i'll also attempt to mod and make fit. I'm hoping all this with the corolla bumper should make it look a tad tough, plus with dort dort dort noises shortly, it should be interesting...
  7. Finally got a discussion, so discuss shit. // I don't know what I really want from the car at the moment. Aside from a semi reliable daily. So will be getting cert when I get around to it and fix some rusty stuffs on it. And the new motor. And a few other bits and bobs. Shout us your idea's and shit.
  8. Looking a bit low at the moment :/ Got the rears sussed out. Got to 'relow' the front another 25mm so its even (95mm all around) Not sure if I'm Gay Dee EM yet, but these should help:
  9. Ae85/6 in the garage for sale? Hahahahhaha. I do like the twin headlights...
  10. Small update: Got the front coilovers in. Thats currently at its highest setting, and thats the most positive camber I can get :/ Rides like utter shit at the moment, re doing the rears - again as I had trouble with wheels fitting in the rear guards for wednesdays meet hopefully... Pity I won't have my ducktale on it for then either Oh and got me a nice red Sparco reclinable, just to match the outside. (The seat is old, dirty and worse for where so it matches the outside perfectly)
  11. Have made little to no progress... Been broke due to no student allowance at the moment... Have bought a few little niceties for this. Including: Full set of Teins. $65 - getting them rebuilt then changed to suit my Carina eventually. [/url] ANNNNND Because the old 3AU is a sack of shit and struggles to get my fat ass up hills. We've agreed and paying off this 4AGE 16V until my new engine is built XD [/url] $700. With a K50, A series box + clutch setup. With some spare parts. But mainly because its a GZE bottom end, ( been rebuilt ) 16V bigport head ( Been rebuilt ) with receipts and HKS Jasma extractors... Contemplating running twin carbs so I don't have to bother about wiring/ ECU troubles... But will definitely get a lightened flywheel so I can ring it out on teh streets with my 4.8:1 T series head...
  12. Heey guys, So I needed a daily whilst my V8 is being built due to me selling off all my cars haha. Anywho, Picked up this Carina off trademe. Was on there for a little while... An old guy that worked at Mainfeild teaching students to race cars/ build em? Had it. UCOL or something. We left Auckland at 2am Saturday morning to go get it, thinking it was wof and reg'd it would be sweeeeeet to drive home. However when we got to Fielding, we discovered the waterpump had F#^ked itself from sitting in storage. So from Fielding to Auckland was a long drive. Constantly overheating. Constantly spitting out water. We ended up plugging up the waterpump to get it home from Matamata. So its now just sitting on some flipped meshies I had. My good wheels are staying on my TE31 XD How it is now: Was on shitty little steelies that made it float more than a boat. PROS: Toyota buggered up plates, so it says its a 2L. Electronic dash. Decent brakes. New waterpump. Cheap to run BLOODY MASSIVE IN SIDE! AMOUNT OF TOOLS I CAN GET IN IS RIDICULOUS CONS: ​​​Shocks are routed. Waterpump F%$ked. Now fixed. Radiator 99% blocked NO Radio. Severly cracked dash. Some really dodgy looking repairs made. A wee bit of rust in bottom of guards. ​PLANS: LOOWER FROM 4x4 spec to something decent. HALF DONE Replace 3.9:1 diff CHECK. 4.8:1 in there. New front reclinables Front brake upgrade - to the celica vented. CHECK Fix rust. Tinted windows Chuck on my Sexy Japanese lady gearstick from Nathan in Hamilton CHECK. Adapt an AE86 notch back TRD ducktale to fit.
  13. Hahahah yeah, been told not to cut up the TE31 bonnet as they're rare as rocking horse shit and worth some decent coin. I've got a few different Ke3# bonnets luckily in storage so thats no problem, otherwise if it does have to come down to cutting it up completely, i'll find a rusty or just buy a brand new fibreglass one.. I'm happy with a 2cm/3cm bulge in the bonnet, and i'll get it painted so it still kind of looks factory until you get close, but got to get the mounts sorted out first. The engine ones are pretty whorey, so my old man is going to make me up some that look nicer/ stronger and hopefully sit the engine a tad lower.. Also been considering 'hug fit' type extractors like on the big chevvy v8's/ a winged sump so I don't rip it off going out the driveway.
  14. Oh real? Thats pretty good to know haha Yeah, when I got it, it was on cutties with the most whorey lowering block setup ever.. The guy 'modded' the radiator to suit the 1UZ by turning it upside down, so the bung is now at the top of the tank -.- I've heard the S15/ Commodore radiators have the perfect outlets for a 1UZ so i'm hoping i'll get an Alloy one for an Xmas pressie from someone. Was it red when he had it? Or the yuk toyota yellow?
  15. After dude, I got it from Pukekohe a few months back eh. Did it have the 1UZ and shit in it when he had it?
