    Hey guys,
    Been lurking for ages and decided to sign up when i couldnt get to the info i needed. I recently brought another Granny Spec KE70 and have been working at speed to get back in the game.

    So here is the low down on what ive been up to.

    .





    Plans as the title suggests is to get back to where i was around a year ago when some lowlife stole my ride. With a few changes here and there. So once again im going with a CA18DET between the towers.

    http://corollabrotherhood.blogspot.co.nz...-ke70.html



    Started collecting all parts to get this project started.
    I picked up a CA18DET and Box with loom ecu etc
    AE86 Discbrake rear, with new bushes, bearings, rotors, rebuilt capipers and a 2way LSD to top it off
    Te71 Pedalbox
    New clutch and Lightned Flywheel
    Turbo Manifold

    Chucked a new timing belt and tensioners and waterpump on. New thermostat, clutch and flywheel fitted.







    Once again i have put a split my ca gearbox and put the rear half of a skyline r33 gearbox onto it. the main reason i have done this is because the ca box is about 75mm longer then a rb box. in turn makes you have to chop more out of your car and hits handbrake. Plus its stronger and has mechanical speedo.




    Also installed my ae86 diff with some of my leftover parts that i had held onto for some reason from my old car



    car was almost ready to mount engine. Finished off the TE71 pedal box install. At first i thought sweet its gonna work out. But then NO!

    2 problems, steering wheel was out of alignment and clutch pedal hit very bottom of column.

    Luckily ive been speaking with a 86fiend and he sent me a link for a spacer. So i went out and brought a tap and die set and came up with this.





    And for the clutch pedal i got my stock brake pedal and welded it and chopped clutch pedal to suit. it feels good and in the right position unlike bending it. prety happy






    Kept collecting the parts that i need for this sucker. Got stuff like exhaust, bov, gauges and most exciting of the lot,
    Some adjustable front suspension. They've got Wilwood 4pot calipers and vented disks, ps arms, rosejointed lower arms.
    Should give me enough stopping power to get cert, and its still possible to run 14's









    Decided where I wanted all my gauges and mounted ready for when i start wiring up the car.



    Sorted out the fuel tank for efi. I scavenged a skyline tank with pickup, cut a hole and got it all soldered in the position need. Also modded fuel sender because it hit the new bowl in the bottom, and length as the filter hit the bottom. Just gotta sort out a new pump then bend up some fuel line



    Also scored some BC Shocks, Springs and Perches to sort out the rear end.

    bc's


    13's



    Got the engine mounted, 3inch dump made up and was one step closer to getting this thing on the road without a tow rope or trailer, stoaked



    Mounted up intercooler, rad+ electric fan and oil cooler.






    Bent up and ran some fuel line, installed new pump, modded bracket. Chucked tank back in, installed driveshaft, bleed brakes and clutch

    Spent hours reasearching wiring info and shit and wired up everything. Tucked it away.






    This is where im up to now,Made sure everything was checked of the list. Filled with fluids.
    And in the end after some head scraching and calls to the champ Brendon, got to drive up the driveway,
    down the road and back.
    So stoaked,
    Just need exhaust finished and cert man here we come. 6mths since i started.

    I just love seeing ke's that are packed with the power to make regular speedracer/nissans look silly in comparison.

    I like the way that intercooler is positioned. When does it hit boost with that manifold/turb/intercooler setup?

    Not quite sure when it comes on boost yet, im in the prosess of trying to find how to wire up stock tacho. Seems quick though

    The lip on the car now is a standard one for this model
    Also my old front lip was off Rhett Del Rosario aka TOYCOOLROLLA in the phillipines, ive paid for another one off him and he has scammed me Saying he sent it twice. Paid in jan for it.

    So for anyone reading this STARE CLEAR!!!

    Well my brakes wern't 100% from upgrading to Wilwood setup and AE86 Disc Brake. So I took out stock master and replaced it
    with a Mitsi Pajero master which has a bigger 15/16th bore. Also got a Rear Proportioning Valve for adjustment.

    It all went pretty smoothly and was a bolt in afair. The few parts i needed was a couple of banjo bolts from a Mazda 626 clutch master and a couple of 323 brake lines. $25 from pik apart.
    Also a 1/8th NPT male - 1.0x10mm female adapter for the Prop Valve to the stock line. $30




    Also finally after 1 year and 2mths my chin lip spoiler turned up from Rhett. Bit of finetuning and it should come out sweet.
