  1. Ahh ... tell me more - I'm interested! Well below is the answer google just gave me........ I wonder if this stuff is any better than Waxoil or just a different name for it. So who has used it? Active Thin Fluid Film chemistry penetrates corrosion deposits where it chemically emulsifies and displaces the electrolyte. This isolation process keeps the corrosion cell deactivated
  2. Do you end up giving the car and chassis a wash first and letting it dry thoroughly before doing all of the above??
  3. If you have the early spec car you can upgrade to the later spec brakes. I have done this on my AE92. It was simply a case of changing over the calipers and disks. The only other thing is you will have to bend back the dust shield that the brake disk sits in front of.
  4. I can put you in touch with someone who can supply 4AGZE engines. PM me for details. However I would recommend that you decide what you want to do with your Corolla before purchasing more bits. Like others have already said, if you turbo the 4AGE engine you will not get good power gains compared to the time and effort put in plus you will need to consider uprating the pistons and rods. The 4AGZE can be turbo'd but why go down that route when you have a supercharged engine already??
  5. Good news, so will you be keeping it this time??? Always good to see an old post updated with useful info.
  6. I can testify to that! Belated welcome to the forums my friend.
  7. Its under the exhaust manifold at the front of the engine. Follow the cable from the battery and you will be able to see it.
  8. Yep the calipers are aluminium so quite light. I meant you could save weight on the brake discs by using a floating set up. One of the reasons i asked was as i am looking at this conversion myself and if you struggle to sell the complete set up, would you consider selling the bells seperately possibly with the discs if they could be machined down to fit under 16 inch rims. Just a thought!
  9. With the disks having to be drilled/machined and considering how heavy they are would it not be an option to buy some floating disks and use the existing bells you have? I am looking at this conversion on my AE92, I have got the calipers and disks but was wondering how much weight would be saved using a floating disk set up, no idea of the cost of them though but i know it wouldnt be cheap!
  10. It could just be the 5th gear synchro thats worn, as far as I am aware this was the main problem with these. Not overly difficult to replace as mentioned earlier box doesn't need to be split to replace the synchro or the 5th gear if it turns out it is the gear. synchro is about £20ish from Toyota
  11. how easy is it to refurb the front calipers? - got a pair that needs doing........ the problemi had on the rear ones was the slider welded itself to the caliper - neglect on my part for not greasing them when servicing..... live and learn! i didnt get as far as trying to take the handbrake mech off.......... appreciate why you want to do it yourself I havent done the front ones before myself but they should be relatively easy to do theres not much to them and no handbrake mechanism behind the piston to deal with! I've got a Haynes manual somewhere if you want scans of the relevant pages let me know
  12. When you have a total of four pairs of AE92 calipers it makes sense to save money if you can :D Im not going to go into what i think the benefits are of doing the refurb myself or if its easier to exchange them. The question was regarding the tool to take the circlip out. Anyway I may have come across a solution will post up once im sure it works
  13. Reconditioned calipers cost about £80 each on an exchange basis. Its about half the cost to fully refurb a caliper including changing the piston so makes sense to go the refurb route really :) I will google brakes engineering and see if they can help or offer any advice, thanks.
  14. Hi all, Im in the process of doing a full refurb on my AE92 rear brake calipers. As everyone knows these calipers were one of the worst designed items on the AE92 as they always seize if not tended too. Well I have decided to strip them completely but have come up against a bit of a problem. Once the piston has been removed a special Toyota service tool is required to remove a circlip to release the handbrake mechanism. I have asked at my local Toyota dealer and they are stumped too. Does anyone know what the part number for the toll is or what alternative tool can be used. I have had a good look round and cant find anything that would fit. Oh and if anyone looks in the Haynes manual for the part number of the tool its not correct or no longer available I think as i did ask at Toyota.
  15. Get yourself down to a local motor factors they should be able to provide you with a set of disks for half the price of Fensport. As your car is a TVIS it will have the smaller front disks (assuming it is the front that need replacing) and these are a lot cheaper than the non TVIS ones. You should always change the disks as a pair and the pads too. As for pads Toyota ones are good they may be a bit more expensive than other ones out there on the market but work well. It may be an idea to find ADL Blueprint parts as these are the parts that are actually used by Toyota as OEM parts. If your still struggling you could buy online from http://www.brakesint.co.uk/ You definately need to look at freeing up your calipers as the disks should not break easily or regularly. Good luck
  16. JB Motorsport is no longer in existence as such. Contact http://www.clkmotorsport.com/ he is the guy JB Motorsport had his parts supplied by. He is a good friend of mine and you will have no problems dealing with him. Other than that you can try Ebay every now and again. As for the swap the engine bolts in and the wiring needs modifying. I think clkmotorsport can modify your existing wiring loom to make it plug and play. I had major problems with my wiring but eventually got there! Good luck
  17. 4AGZE AE92 Clutch Kit For Sale Kit includes Cover Plate and Bearing. This has only been used for 10miles in my car! I installed the clutch while carrying out the engine conversion in my AE92 and while the car was still at the garage I managed to pick up a JUN flywheel cheap. As the car was still at the garage we decided to fit the flywheel straight away. Only then realising the JUN flyhweel requires a 230mm clutch cover and not the 225mm we had. Rather than drilling out the holes I replaced the whole kit. This leaves me with a complete 225mm Clutch Kit. The bearing has not even been used! It is manufactured by ADL/Blueprint who I believe are OEM for Toyota so its the same as what you would get from Toyota! As you can see in the pictures the clutch disk has just surface marks and is not worn at all. If anyone requires more pics let me know. Price is £130 delivered thats a 33% saving off Fensports price!
  18. It is possible but difficult. Engine mountings and wiring will be the most complicated issues. However it has been done and the best example of what is achievable has to be Dawesy's Corolla which you will find on this forum. Its also using a 3SGTE engine but from a Celica GT4 if I am correct. You can see his website here http://homepage.ntlworld.com/lee.dawes/ Dont think it has been updated to show how it looks now but you will get the idea!
  19. www.club4ag.com has the pin identification and wiring diagram for the AE101 4AGZE. ITs under the tech reference section.
  20. yes saw them on there but they only list us or usa models didnt know if the uk model was different , I remember when looking at my ECU i used the Jap diagrams from Club4ag and they were correct. Only difference would be there would be nothing in the pin for air conditioning. I dont think there are any other differences. Easy way is to check the diagrams to your ECU plugs. If the pin identification matches you should be ok
  21. They are also listed on www.club4ag.com under the tech reference section.
  22. I can understand people not being happy with EVO's rating but its not all about pure statistics a car with a lot less power can be more fun to drive than a more powerful car. EVO rating it as they do is purely their opinion and EVO is a magazine which concentrates on driving appeal than other aspects. Having said that i dont think the T sport is a bad car at all. Anyway as for it accelerating to 60 in around 8 seconds i dont think that can be questioned its their test figures. Besides I was more than a match in first and second gear in my GTi!!
  23. Yep there is a green one, not the best colour for the AE82 and i think even a brown colour too. Best in black or white in my opinion

    This one is on ebay at the moment.
