    Cool My 4agte tuff daily build yo!


    TO REMOVE ADS, PLEASE
    REGISTER OR SIGN IN
    So my name is Adam and ive been lurking on these fourms for a while now, id thought i will post up my build.

    Its a 1984 KE70, with about 230,000kms. Maybe some of you saw it but i had it up for sale here a few months back after slowly loosing interest in the car.. well happy to say im glad i didnt. It had the standard 4k, 4speed in it, and i was trying to break it for an excuse to put a 4age in it, but i had no luck luck and failed!! It just wouldnt die. The car has been my fun daily for about a year and a half so i though id clean it up abit, throw some carpet back in her and give this thing a bit of love!! Simple!

    So one day i was in it and started pulling stuff out to clean up the wiring! One thing lead to another and within a few hours i had completly stripped out the interior. Scratching my head not knowing what i was actually trying to do. The next weekend somehow the 4k was out 4 speed was in the bin and grease under my finger nails. What i was left with was pretty much a bare shell. The missus came up to me and said very politely..What the fuck are you doing?? and i said i dont really know! just trying to clean up some wiring. HAha

    So..dont know how, but somehow i found a excuse to do my first conversion.

    check out some PICS....

    Seing as this car will be my daily and sometimes track this is what my wish list looks like

    4agze converted to turbo
    t50
    t series
    coilovers
    put some carpet back in
    re bush everything
    bracing
    brake upgrde
    and of course all the little bits that go in between.

    Pretty standard upgrades but lets see how i go. probably not gonna be the fastest of builds, but let's see how it goes

    feel free to comment

    BTW the intercooler in the first pic is way to big 600x300x70 for my liking..

    i will be going a 520x220x65 it will be a much better fit i think.

    So anyway i though id share my experience with installling my AE71 pedal box. Ive seen abit of info using templates and stuff and to honest there is really no need.
    It was a piece of piss, and took all of about an hour. Keeping in mind i had all my dash out. I probably wouldnt even bother working around everything id just rip it all out.



    Ignoring the holes i have already drilled, get the pedal box mounded in and nip up all the bolts making sure the brake booster is in. Get up under the steering wheel with a small screw driver and punch the 2 holes that need to be drilled. Dont hit it too hard just enough to get a mark from the engine bay side. This is where the red arrows are pointing.

    Next thing to do is simple..From the engine bay side you should not have 2 small pretrusions from where u just hit.. get a centre punch and hit it the other way. Now u will have both holes centre punched perfectly. Before you drill them scribe a line straight down the centers, than half way between. Done!
    Where these 2 lines cross this is the middle of the big hole u have to drill. Save yourself the hassle and just go out and get a hole saw.
    Once drilled throw some paint on it and Slap on a Clutch Master!!

    I've installed 2 of these now and both times I didn't get the hole perfectly aligned..

    You cant tell but still it was annoying to get it wrong and have to enlargen the hole with a die grinder.

    Yeah the way i did it i was really happy the holes lined up perfectly, and a hole saw made the job headache less!


    So today i went and picked up a few bits and pices. Got myselft a T25, T-series and some other stuff to go with it. just gotta source out a turbo manifold now. I probably want to go a low mount system.

    So i was just thinking about the tail shaft and i was wondering if a ke70 front half will go into the t50 box?? will it work with the rear half out of a ra40??

    Tommorrow im and gonna swap the huge intercooler i bought, for one a little bit smaller lol hopefull get some brakets made during the week and have that all mounted.

    Looks good man, i like the black bay and intercooler mounting. I mounted my intercooler the same and i'd agree a shorter one will be much easier to route the piping.
    KE70 tailshaft won't fit an AE86/71 T50, however it will fit a T18 or TA22 T50. 86 front shaft with T18 rear shaft is the standard recipe for 86/71 T50s to T series diffs.

    So today i went and changed my cooler for something more practical..i got a 520x220x60. Fits in real nice and pipe work will look neater. Might just throw a can of black paint at it to give it the stealth loook

    gonna sort out a new radiator probably just go a ebay special..make some mounts during the week and get them both mounted it.

    next on the to-do list is put a fitting in the sump for the oil return from the turbo. after that i should be able to bolt the box up to the motor and settle them both into thier new home.

    Cant wait to do some skids!!

    Bit of an update on my progress...

    Been abit bit busy latley havent had much time to play with, but today i got some stuff done. First of all i took the sump of the motor so i can take it into work on monday and weld a oil return for the turbo. hopefully have it back on mid week. I bought a excedy heavy duty clutch so now i can finally mate the t50 and motor together. Also bought a new gearbox rubber mount. Alot of fucking around trying to put them both in seeing i have only got my car on stands, but i got there in the end. Im using a ae86 gearbox crosmember and to me it doesnt look good, as only 1 bolt either side lines up. Has anyone got and other ideas of what cross members to use or will the ae86 on be ok?? any advice?

    Test fitted the intake manifold, and all looks sweet now the cooler and intake manifold is all sorted i should be able to start plumbing that side of things up. I should have a turbo manifold all sorted by next week so than i can mount up my little hair dryer and work out the piping on that side.
