Recommended Posts

Hi all as some of you will know I blow the engine on my ae86 Decided to rebuilt it with stronger parts and hope of some better reliability I know my major problem is the ecu as no one in the UK(and probably in the whole of Europe) can map this thing! so iam looking into getting a different Ecu (anyone recomend any decent ecu's?)

any way here are some pic's

here's the car looking sad :(

also has a os Giken super single clutch which is nice the only thing bad about is its pretty worn out which is not nice as a rebuild kit cost 300+ quid :(

also striped the block to see what had failed a lot of guys were saying that the ring lands have gone and I was thinking it was the piston rings which have failed but both the rings and the ring lands are f***ed :(

piston no.1 bottom compression ring has multiple cracks and the ringland fell apart in my hands

Holy crap that's some serious damage! :o

Glad you are sorting it out though. :yes:

I am going for a Haltech PS1000 fully reprogrammable ECU, there is the Haltech PS2000 but the 1000 is for up to 5 Cyl. engines and they are also suitable for Turbo and Charger applications. :D

PS1000

Look at my price list and it has the UK GBP price. Something like £945.... :o

The same people do many clutches so take a look around. :thumbsup:

Yeh so true! The only standard parts will be the block, head, TVIS, oil pump and gearbox! :lol:

Btw, do you know what paint was used on the block? It doesn't look like high temp paint to me... :huh:

have you looked at the Link G4 range of ECU's?

yeah was looking into the Link storm G4 and Thor are doing a very good price I think it about 1500 supplied,fitted and mapped!! which is a very good deal IMO

as for the anti lag I think I'll give that a miss already been through 2 turbo's lol

ok back to the build before I continue I thought I would show some vid's that helped me alot on this build

Sr20det rebuild I know it not a 4age but it still uses the same principles of high performance engine building

http://www.56.com/u34/v_NDk4MTkwMjM.html

and this is a vid on the 4age it's in Japanese but you still get the idea

and I also used a 4a-ge service manual but I can't find the web site I got it from (anyone know how to host files?)

here's my work bench the boot lid of my skyline lol :lol:

20100726_002.jpg

sweet :D

Now the next part is to measure each piston ring and file it (if needed) to spec's now this is a long because you have to put the ring square in the bore then measure it if it to small(which they all are, none of them are the right size out of the box) then you take it out and then file a little then place it back in the bore measure and repeat until it the right size and you have to do this for every single ring!! :yawn: lets just say I started at 11am and finished at 5am in the morning!! :yawn: (Watch the SR20 rebuild vid I posted to see how it is done)

Mounting the arias pistons and the spool conrods looking sexy :thumbsup:
