    One wire for fuel pump

    Decided to leave thw battery in the front, easy to get to

    Nice to see it of the front lawn!


    Engine bay completed, wiring done and all hidden amd cleaned up and fuel lines finally sorted with new carter black and fuel reg





















    back from my europe tour and back on my feet ready to get back into the 86.
    Decided to pull the old 4age out and donate it to my mates nuts ke70, craving more power.
    Loved the N/A power, sound of 10,500rpm and the old school carbies but needed a change.
    So i have picked up a Gen4 3sgte to replace 4a
    Striping it down and going from there. Will be keeping internals stock as for now till i decide on more power.
    There is a few little bits and pieces that needs to be fabbed up such as the drivers side engine mount, cooling system, intake and turbo manifold. Im sure there will be plenty more along the way!
    Grabbed two 2s mounts from an old corona from a wrecker, turns out it Bolts straight in besides 2 bolts on drivers side. So a plate will be made up.
    I have a W58 bell housing, for late model 5 speed supra box. Looking for a box atm!
    Also a Hilux diff, just need the mounts welded on.
    Will be running custom rear brake setup, back to 4 stud. Going to try keep the size of brakes to fit in 14's as i want to still run the Hayashis, but not going to hold my breath as i dought ill be able to with decent brakes.
    Few more plans here and there
    Will be alot to do but will try keep the updates coming!


    Finally decided to give in and get rid of the polka dots!
    black suede much nicer




    New recaro seat for passenger




    big mess



    striped down, first test fit
    sits a little high. hopefully by just changing the rocker cover will sort it out

    also shaving most the engine bay of any unnecessary holes, battery tray etc
    in progress atm.
    all wiring will be hidden aswell


    picked up a ct26 7mgte turbo to use the rear housing for the 3s st26



    thats it for now guys
    hope u all like!!

    Isn't the Gen 4 3SG a BEAMS? Thought only earlier ones are turbo'd. Nice job so far, i like the engine bay different like that, and glad you binned the polka dots, lol.
