    Hello all

    My names Stephen and im another Irish ae86 head Austrailia bound.
    Heading for Perth the 9th of January.

    I have an Ae85 Trueno with full Ae86 running gear.
    I bought the car about 4 years ago off an Irish importer that dealt with Powervehicles at the time.

    I bought the car with a good spec and have added and changed a few bits and pieces.
    Engine was a 16v 4age running on mikuni/solex carbs.

    After lots of money and hardship the car is still running the 16v but running on an omex 600 ecu with 20v silvertop throttle bodies with some other goodies.

    The site looks the business

    Must get some work and saving sorted in oz first but another oldskool toyota should be on the cards all going well.

    Heres a few pics of my car from when it was in japan to how it looks now.

    Thanks man, haha. The carbs were cool and sounded awesome BUT the throttle bodies are much better.

    No balancing or messing around. Just got it mapped and away with me.

    Car is making good power now too, my lil n/a 16v is making 202bhp and 144lbft torque
