    Hi,
    Welcome to the world of AE86 ownership
    What are you setting the car up for?
    Street, Track, Drift?

    Depends on your budget aswell,
    I'd go for suspension, then a 4AGE engine conversion

    as above, get you suspension sorted and get a feel for the car. that way when you do an engine swap you'll know how control all the extra power!

    also, if heading in the NA direction a smallport motor is your best option.

    thanks for the suggestions its for street use but might take it on the track for a bit of a slide as well but im more intersted in handling than power also just wondering your thoughts on the 3sge instead of the 4age

    3sge makes more power and tourqe. but with the 4age u cant beat the NA revving. 3sge is a little bit more stuffing around to transplant but still quite simple. the beams 3sge is and ugly looking motor

    4age is a proven win. Cheap and simple.

    There is a lot you can do suspension wise, depends on budget.

    2nd that. It is a good place to start motor wise and pretty realistic money wise for most.

    And yeah what's the budget??

    4age is good, but expensive to get power from in NA form.

    3sge is better in the long term. as 4age is slower than a lot of new cars..... keep in mind its not all about corners as u dont drive ONLY on touge every day lol. so something with a bit of straightway power is nice
