    Custom inlet plenum coming up next. Some photos of the process...






    How itís all sitting in the bay. Nearly ready to be tuned.




    A before & after engine bay shot. Still tidy in my opinion...

    Fluids in, everything buttoned up and ready for dyno. This is it sitting at Kayís fabrication who is the man behind all this work.




    On the trailer and off to the tuners. This part is always nerve wrecking.


    Strapped down. Lift pump died. Replaced that quickly, everything going smooth and the 20v seems to be loving it.


    Great result. Doubled torque figures and nearly double the horsepower. 232rwhp on 11psi.


    The car feels amazing and sounds unreal. Super responsive with the Gt2560r! Completely stock engine with just ARP head studs. At the time of making this post Iíve had this set up going strong for over a year at 11psi.

    After getting the car tuned it was time to take it for its first track day. The goal of the car was always to have a street driven tidy Ae86 that could comfortably be driven to a sprint event locally and make it home.

    Packed up and ready for some testing.




    Overall the car went well mechanically. Lakeside is a fun track but my set up was far too stiff to put down a decent lap time. The federal tyres proved to be a bit of a handful also.




    Next for the car is to add some safety and put some work into the suspension set up.

    Ditched the HSD rear shocks for TRD Blues. 6kg rear springs got swapped for 4.7kg Swift springs and the front 8kg springs went down to 6kg from MCA. Needle bearing washers got attached to the front coilovers to help lighten up steering a bit. MRP traction rods also got added to the rear.




    Half cage going in next. Happy to have a full interior to work around it. Rear seats really help to keep road noise down. Matching front Bride seats and some floor mats from Expert Oz. Waiting for a Bride passenger rail to even out the seat positions...

    Watanabes got a powder coat treatment in a nice Bronze. In direct light they look amazing.


    Wrapped in Nankang AR-1 225/40/15 tyres. Highly recommend these tyres, not much heat needed to get big grip from these!






    Made a trip up to QR to do some testing around the Sprint Circuit. Had a great day, car felt awesome minus a boost cut issue in higher gears. Managed a 61.5sec lap time. Drove there & drove home.








    Quick cockpit video of the sprint event. Since this event there hasnít been much changed to the car but some big plans are on the way..
