Hey fellas. Since I sold my Gem I have bought this. But in the meantime i bought the gem back. haha. long story. but anyways. The 86 is a pretty cool car. I bought it pretty much stock.
First i’ll start with what I’ve bought.
· T18 T-series and TRD 2-way
· Front and rear strut braces
· Twincam steering wheel
· Whiteline Adj panhard rod
· AJPS 40mm RCA’s
· Rosejointed Adj LCA’s
· Front coilovers
· P/S knuckles
· 280 degree 8mm lift crow cams
· Toda valve springs
· Toyota water pump
· Toyota timing belt
· Adjustable cam gears
· Roof spoiler
· Boot spoiler
· Full stainless lobster-back exhaust 2.5 inch. (under diff)
· Skidders

Oh and a hydro handbrake, cause the stock handbrake is f*#cking shithouse.

And just small s*#t like a service, new plugs, and all new oils. Heres some of the specs...
Engine/ Driveline:
4AGE conversion, Bigport
TRD style Extractors
Exedy H/D clutch
T-series with TRD 2-way


Front strut brace
Weld on coilover sleve kit. Goes f*#cking looooow.
T3 camber tops
Tien Springs, shortened shocks
Power steering Knuckles (shorter)
AJPS 40mm RCA’s
AJPS lockspacer
Rosejointed Adj LCA,s
Rebuilt front calipers with new pads
New RA60 rackends, New outer tie rod ends and new rack boots,
New Nolathane bushes throughout car

TRD 6kg rear springs,
(still need to get adj spring seats)
New heavy duty short stroke shocks
(need to get shorter ones)
Whiteline Adj panhard rod
Rear strut brace

2004 Subaru impreza Bucket seats (modplated)
Twin-cam steering wheel
TRD gear knob
Hydraulic handbrake (hidden under dash)
Custom kiddies floor mats..
Fake Defi Oil pressure gauge

Roof spoiler
Small boot Spoiler (getting painted)
Bonnet risers
15x6.5 +15 Almex mesh(I think?) on the front
15x8 +5 Nemotos on the rear.
New wheels arriving at the end of feb.
Also a full set of the almex meshies will be for sale soon.
Let me know if your interested.

Ive done a few wheelies and screechies in it. Goes well for a fairly stock car. About to do my first morning sesh on the 27th. Well first one apart from the all day sesh last year. Where I f*#cked a rim and bent an axle. Haha. Photo of rim is below Also done 2 friday night sessions.

Some time before morning sesh im going to put my cams in. I bought them and thought I may aswell do the rest of it like water pump, t-belt, H/D vlave spring and Adj cam gears. So id like to have that done soon. Should go pretty good then.

Like I said earlier I still need to get adjustable rear spring seats and shorter rear shocks. But that can wait a bit, got a pair of wheels in a container from japan. So once they arrive I will have a full set of baller wheels.

And the best part of all is my ITB’s which I purchased last week. That includes
Silvertop 20v itbs
- machined alloy trumpets
- t3 billet manifold for bigport 4age
- earls fitting for all the vacuum lines
- blox vacuum distro block
- complete loom for the set up
- adaptronic ECU tuned for 4age bigport with this exact setup
- smallport dizzy (used for the setup)
- MAP sensor (I think? to sample air temp/press close to the itbs?)
Also bought a Sard fuel pressure Reg. Still need to find a set of filters for the trumpets...

So I will put that On after Morning sesh. I thought about doing it before MS but I dont want to run into problems and risk loosing my spot for MS.

Also bought a pair of Watanabe's today. I think I'll use them as skidders lol

I'm always up for a chat and to meet new people. So if you see be around come say hey. Keen to get some NA trains going one day too. That would be f*#cking epic as s*#t on a stick.

Anyways enough talking Ill show you some pictures..










I've joined the dark side.......... Toyota AE86.

Also bought my Gem back... awwwww shieeeetttt
