    Ash’s 85 Toyota crumpy

    Issues with the exhaust too. HX30 rear housing flange doesn’t suit anything I can find off the shelf so I’ll need to get another flange-turbo that goes straight to 3”. that and the lengths of tube and bends OD is about a 1.5mm to big for the other V bands I’ve got for down pipe to mid, and mid - tail so I’ll haft to chuck them in the lath. mainly cause I like to overlap the tube from one side into the other side V band as well as using male-female V bands. i did it on a JZX110 system I did and it located well and sealed super tight. other things the intake. Going to do a quick cut and shut to get it running. Bit of an awkward spot but a 90’ into the cente on the plenum should work ok. Just need to do a measure up from the bellhousing to see where it will sit. then save up for a spool gun and glue stick the cunt together

    Unfortunately I’ve been to busy with life to give anything car related some time until the last couple days. stills runs like shit, -5 stars for the eBay carby. Think the secondary sticking, maybe, fuck knows anywho, seat was buggered and found another for $80 in good con. Good bloke even dropped it off for me and had yarns about unfinished projects for over an hour. Pulled the vinyl up and... ffs ill sort it out and take it back, then DP40, then raptor coat it all black and just not bother with floor covers cause 4wd life

    Ian’s Alfa Montreal

    Went for a blat today. looks really slow in the video haha and it’s probably only just as fast as a late model Camry, but it would have been pretty tops in the early 70’s its pretty boaty around corners. Hopefully the sport suspension and bushes turn up from alfaholics soon. couple other things too, like a high idle. And the clutch is all the way at the top so needs a bit of adjustment. not so sure about how to sort the idle as I’ve not had mech injection before so if anyone’s got and knowledge on it feel free to flick me a line

    Ian’s Alfa Montreal

    Started a thread on his behalf because he sucks at interwebbing, but also because it’s got a lot of interest so thought people would like to see it and I’ll get him out to some OS things in it. had a fair bit of resto work. from custom milled stainless led high stop to milled stainless rear seat luggage latch mounts. motors 2.6L v8 with mech injection, and factory dry sump setup. motors just had a full rebuild inc the sump setup etc. upgraded 4 pot front brakes and a couple other things using factory bolts ons from other Alfa models rear suspension is pretty shot, and it sits a little high. Got some parts from alfaholics on the way. old boys pretty slack with work updates etc but if anyone has and questions or photos of any part just message me and I’ll get it up

    I’ve done a lot of research into doing rwd 2GR. Absolute pain in the ass. Can swap onto a small box that won’t handle the torque and no room for starter as the block design means the starter has to be on the Gbox side. or a Lexus sc350 2GR with auto and custom bellhousing to manual box, $$$ 1GR with R box is the go, but it’s a pleb commercial vehicle motor compared to a Nissan 35. 2GR bellhousing pattern is different to the Lexus 2GR and 1GR so that’s a no go. ford or Nissan for sure

    Yeah after posting this I found a guy put a jag one into an mx5 in the uk and a company that’s sells conversion parts for it. Inc carbon intakes youtube “car throttle mx5” and it’ll turn up and yeah imagine 2.5L Nissan motors are pretty reasonable price to

    Theres ford Duratech v6 guys put in all sorts, so might find bellhousing and other conv parts pretty easy. Can’t imagine they would be a super common swap in NZ so might get reasonable pricing on them
