    Default Brendon's KE/AE Daily. NEW ENGINE PICS

    Hey all,
    this is currently my daily driver while I try to get the Sprinter back on the road. Bought it off Doony about a month ago knowing it needed some work and have almost enjoyed every minute of driving it. Turned out that No. 2 cylinder had no compression, there was a massive vacuum leak somewhere and the carbie was gunked up

    Ended up buying another 4K-C powerhouse for it and dropping it in over two nights and also bought a carbie kit so it's like it's from factory. It is a KE70 body but has AE front end as it was sagging according to Doony.

    Handles extremely well and is a grippy little car that the missus can also learn in.Just needs wider rims and tyres as you can feel them flexing when cornering hard. So thats the story so far and it hasn't missed a beat, time for some specs.

    ENGINE:
    Older 4K-C with some emmissions removed
    Brand new carbie kit in it
    Excellent air-con
    2.5" Dori exhaust pipe out back

    SUSPENSION:
    Ae86 struts and brakes
    Lovell's 5+3 kg springs
    Koni yellows all round (yes adjustable, NO not short stroke)
    Standard cheese graters and tyres

    INTERIOR:
    Unknown reclinable bucket seat
    HKB boss kit
    D1 spec steering wheel
    TRD gear knob
    Centre console removed

    EXTERIOR:
    Side strips removed
    Wheel archs slightly rolled
    Rolla badge

    Plans are to fix the boot up and paint it and also the bonnet black and maybe convert back to KE front, purchase some wider rims and tyres. . . maybe turbo it as i have two spare turbo's lying around

    Got some rims off Dazzla two weeks ago and chucked them on.

    13x7 about +2 allround wrapped in 175/70









    Could do with some spacers to push them right out to the guards. Also if anyone has any AE71 front indicators, i wish to purchase them as my dog decided to eat mine haha

    Bought a shell off Drain on the weekend and stripped the front end of it and pillaged the interior. Front end is so straight and non-saggy which is a bonus so will paint that up in the next few weeks when i get the time and bolt it on. Finally got back window put on the car thanks to the shell again.

    Now the back window also had a louvre on it but i don't whether i should fit it, cut it down to make a window spoiler or sell it?
