how much did that cost you....im buying parts to convert my GZE to GTE at the moment for the end of the year......so yeah........how much and where are you located.....

21st August 2005, 09:52 AM
Around the $700 mark, dump is roughly $300. But thats the price you pay for custom work. Oh well i got mine and very happy with finished product. Im located in Hobart, Tasmania. But wouldnt cost much to get one made and sent across.

At the moment im embaressed to post pics, as its got no front guards and unpainted, still got original paint (yuck cream) and a red boot. I will hopefully have some of it painted this week or so and ill get pics of that up. Get the W55 box tonight so when my engine mounts arrive it will start to go together. Anyone know if i can use a FWD water pump??

thanks brad

14th September 2005, 08:27 AM
Can't wait to see it once it is completed.


14th September 2005, 02:54 PM
Its a AE101 just been rebuilt, its a pure drift pig. Cooler and remote oil cooler kit i got from autocraft in tassie, over priced i was told. Its stock internals till next rebuild.

Hey mate, i've just started up my own lil 4AGZE KE70 drift project n was jus wonderin what u usin 4 suspension. I was plannin to cut sum springs n use sum short stroke struts, but would love to know sum real items i can fit in there

19th September 2005, 10:36 AM
depending on how things go, im either going S13 coilovers front (requires some modification, guide on toymods) this allows for bigger brakes etc, then KYB shocks rear. If i dont go that you can get direct bolt in coilovers through "truenosedan" who runs AJPS.


24th September 2005, 08:10 PM
geez seems to be a heap of guys doin gze/gte ke70 projects lately, including myself!

28th September 2005, 12:21 PM
Its because they are cheaper than a 86 and nearly the same, also if you right one off, you can spend $50 on a new shell http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/tongue.gif

29th September 2005, 03:23 AM
hahaha thats why i bought mine, 150$ for my rolla!

Should be going end of november i reckon, just got to get the new water pump and alternator brackets on.


1st November 2005, 10:55 AM
looks awesome mate, nice work!

1st November 2005, 02:38 PM
The pain in the arse is trying to find RWD alternator brackets, i might try sorce some new ones as the old ones are hard to find. Glad people like the engine, might do some internal work next year, but its just been rebuilt, so all new parts + rebuilt engine = fun http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/tongue.gif

1st November 2005, 05:42 PM
Looking good, keep the pics rolling..

2nd November 2005, 10:44 AM
I just bought some alternator brackets, will these fit, they connect on the inlet side of the block and the top bracket connects to the water pump connection on the head.



29th November 2005, 08:56 AM
Here is that latest that has happend with my car, got the clutch and all on thanks to aaron. The spigot bearing was stuck in rather tight, also he put the adaptor plate together for me. Lastly got the crossmember in.

Here are some pics http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/tongue.gif

Clutch is a 6 puck ceramic button, 3.9kg alloy flywheel, and a 800kg pressure plate http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/tongue.gif

8th December 2005, 11:03 AM
Damn Awesome work! just curious how easy is it to mate the W55-58 series gearbox's in an 86? on the back of the 4AGZE's? need to know this kinda info for my 4AGZE project which i'm working on down the road and can't be having broken gearboxes! ;o) and which one out of the 55-58 series would have the best ratio's etc? mainly for Drift/Circuit

8th December 2005, 12:26 PM
I can PM you the details of the guy that made my adaptor plate, etc and is helping with my car if you like. It adptor plate is 20mm so that moves everything from bell housing back 20mm so you need a custom tailshaft anyway. You can just buy a bell housing from nite parts or something in nz for about 400 i think, maybe more.

my car is on mates site atm, well my parts until i get the car looking nice http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/tongue.gif



11th December 2005, 02:14 PM
Could you also PM me the contact details of the person who makes the adaptor plates please.

Does the shifter position change much?

THanks Tai tran

Hey bro whats happening with your KE70?

theyll work but youll need to use a remote thermostat housing, 9 10ths of 4ags in rwd cars in australia are set up like that.

20th February 2006, 02:14 PM
I bought some over night parts from JAAAAPPPPPPAAAANNNN


i bought all new RWD water pump stuff and alternator brackets off a 4AGEU so it all fits right.


2nd March 2006, 10:47 PM
The engine is bolted in now after a rushed paint job last night i got the motor in with some help from mates. Here are the pics, let me know what you think.
