    Well hello there Maurice is the name another member of the Irish brigade we are slowly taking over here Must say this is a super site with loads of good info and a bit of fun aswell.

    Anyways the reason i'm here, i'm building an ae86 with a 3sge. You ozzy guys seem to love them but it really isn't a popular conversion over here yet anyways but i'm hoping to change that

    Full build at
    http://www.ae86irl.com/forum/showthr...trueno-project

    Here is how it started, late spec 87 trueno coupe, pretty standard and well battle scarred from lots of streeto abuse
    Spec
    Red, origin kit, trd wing, carbon bonnet,
    Standard 4age
    5ziegen manifold and exhaust
    Hks air filter
    Front coilovers 8kg springs camber plates cusco strut brace
    Rear trd greens and some springs
    uras inner rack ends
    Trd quick shifter
    Cusco 2 way diff 4.3 ratio

    Cusco cage
    bride seat
    dished wheel.

    Probably more.

    Here it is in a clean state


    And here before it got stripped



    Went back to bare shell fixed any rust there wasn't much and fully seam welded it then sealed it and painted it black.



    Engine bay was fully welded and shaved and smoothened,


    Arches were massively worked to cover 15x10's on the back and 14x8's on the front.



    I got an engine and box to mock up mounts and my tunnel before i got my actual engine.



    Paint was next tvr purple paradise for the engine bay and bmw m3 grey for the body with standard 3/4 bumpers and skirts




    Thats where I am at the moment

    Engine is in and wiring being done. Going running blacktop throttle bodies and an ontronic ecu.


    front bilsteins with 8kg springs being used and i'm making my own lca's and castor arms.

    Rear axle is fully rebuilt with new 4.3 adjustable back arms and gaz coilovers with standard rebuilt brakes

    Honda front brakes with 282mm discs
    I will update it as i have any more as things will be coming together pretty quickly from here.
    Also photobucket is being gay at the moment so when thats sorted i'll update with pics
