Awesome man. this thing looks great. will go well.

In your opinion do you reckon its worth goin 20V over 16?

in my opinion, i reckon sr20's the way to go! -no mucking round fwd to rwd, not too involved, heaps of torque but then again i havent been in a 20v yet!

23rd May 2006, 03:48 PM
I've driven a 16v 4AGE KE70 with issues and it still went hard, 20V should be a screamer..

23rd May 2006, 04:04 PM
should be awesome!

looking good mate

what was the deal with skyline disks on t18 rear, sounds interesting

24th May 2006, 01:56 PM
Bought the diff with the disc setup already done. Aparrently its a pretty easy upgrade, it has new brackets welded to the axle housing for the calipers and spacers to offset the discs a bit (bout 5-10mm from memory). All looks pretty neat but one of the calipers is leaking even after putting a kit through it - might have to go get another caliper - sposed to be pretty common problem. no internal drums on the discs though so thats a bit of a let down but otherwise its alright!!

some more pics up, got the extractors modified for 20v, mates brother did a preemo job with them as you might be able to see! other than that, still trying to work out how to wire up the old loom to the new one then thats that! have to do fuel stuff too - hopefully its not too hard!

29th May 2006, 09:45 PM
the extractors look great mate! your mates brother does some good work.

just wonderin... why did you choose the silvertop 20V 4age over the 4agze? and where bouts did you get the engine from?

anyway, keep up the good work http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/smile.gif

20th June 2006, 02:52 PM
guess i jus chose the 20v cos it was there... pretty much no other reason, but should be fun. Finished all the wiring but havent done anything for the past week, - been in hospital after stacking my motorbike...

got the fuel lines all hooked up temporarily and tried starting the engine but its not working. checked for spark and its got plenty of that, so just gotta check all the stuff like whether the correct wires are sparking, and whether im acually getting fuel pressure (pretty sure thats good) and making sure the injectors are pulsing, but il get onto that.

still waiting for my plenum of Slydar, taking a long time, been over a month now, but theres no real rush as im not that mobile!

other than that its almost done!

20th June 2006, 03:17 PM
Theres only one problem with the skyline discs is they dont like to lock up at high speed when you reef up the hand brake to initiate a drift.

20th June 2006, 04:06 PM
yeah thats true, but apparently it can be fixed (to an extent) by just usung better brake pads - otherwise gotta just use compression lockup!

18th August 2006, 04:05 PM
got this thing running last week... so much fun, light weight and a powerful revvy na engine - perfect combo! absolutely love it! plus the sleeper factor catches lots of people off guard! just need to neaten up a few things and she'll be sweet! pics up in a minute

18th August 2006, 07:26 PM
Can't see pics

19th August 2006, 04:04 AM
Cant see pics.....and high speed compression locks are not the best for your gear box....or what will be left of it.

how you did the dli conversion ?
mind to share ?

2nd January 2007, 12:49 PM
bit of a stuff around doing the dli conversion - i recommend just getting an aftermarket computer - alot of cutting and splicing and not much cheaper than using a complete aftermarket computer.

The kit consists of a DLI converter which basically is a box which tricks the computer into thinking it still has a distributer - it then outputs a signal to the igniters then coils etc.

but if you're still keen i'll probably be getting rid of my setup soon!

8th April 2007, 08:56 PM
just did suspension over thursday,friday... it is awesome and still not finished! Everyone should invest in good suspension! I did s13 conversion with custom coilover struts. Car honestly feels like a gokart now and there is still lots to do!

At the moment i have sr20det brakes, s13 hubs and lcas, ra60 rack ends, bluebird tierod ends, stock castor rods and swaybars and custom coilovers with kyb agx shocks 6kg springs and stock ke70 strut tops.

Used the commodore wagon rear shocks - was the easiest upgrade ever!
still gotta do rear springs 4kg, flare guards and lower the car all round.

6kg springs are surprisingly good to drive on - thought itd make the car alot stiffer (bouncier) but its really good!

heres some pics i took at my mates house to show extra track wit an indication of lock too.
