  1. Runs from negative side of coil usually. If its multicoil then use the tacho interface unit from a Mitsubishi VR4 turbo as it combines the two outlets into one.
  2. You need the t50 gearbox or use a w57 via a NiteParts W55>4ag bellhousing. Converting the corolla?
  3. www.club4ag.com Send beer to NZ haha :D
  4. We use them all the time. Just run a hose from the cam cover breather to a catch can (i make them out of alloy) and make sure you use a k&n filter or similar on the top of the can to allow the engine to still breathe. Last thing you want to do is over pressurise the head.
  5. Could be meaning the 02 sensor in the exhaust headers. Broken wire or faulty sensor maybe. Im just guessing thou.
  6. What state of tune is it in currently? Have you done the obvious Intake/Exhaust upgrades?
  7. They are good little cars all round. You really need to invest in some good quality lowering springs and a decent set of shocks as they are not all that wonderful around corners untill you've lowered them. Engine wise they're pretty good and I've found them to be very reliable. Being a older car Rust plays a big part in the purchase price. They usually go under the windscreen and at the bottom of the A pillar. Starter motors are easy to find, you just need to replace it with and 2e (thats the engine type) starter motor, I'm not sure but I'd say any E series starter would also fit. As for pics, Ive got a couple. Email me. Here's pics of my two EP71's and I don't think there is many of them around in Australia so if the price is ok I'd buy it. Cheers Stu
  8. Rip the super charger off and slap a turbo on.... like I did. As an example, my mates ae101 gtz levin now has 173kw at the wheels (17psi) with the use of a turbo instead of the super charger. There is some awesome power to be made with the ze engine.
  9. Thought so. Yes the AW11 Mr2 had the 4age aswell.
  10. I thought all AE86's had a 4age standard. The AE85 has the 3a.
  11. Very reliable. Just keep the oil and filter changes regular, change the cam belt every 100,000km or so and don't wind the boost up past 18psi (on stock turbo and fueling) and you'll be fine. The gearbox sometimes ****s a diff but only if your a rapist. Rust is the main killer in them - bottom of the A pillar and around the bottom of the windscreen, sometimes the top of the firewall too. All things said they're good cars/engines.
  12. No the 4ag didn't come out as a turbo option. You can turbo most of the 4age family with great results but the best is of course the 4agze as its factory fitted with forged internals. We've had no problems with turbo applications on Blue Top (88kw) and Red Top (100kw) engines (no compression or internal changes) as long as fueling is addressed. One particular blue top ran 15psi for over a year and is still running perfectly. The super super important part is fueling. Can't stress this enough.
  13. I had a local exhaust company fabricate me up some 4 into 1 tuned length extractors, then had them heat treated. The made a massive difference. Unfortunatly I sold them when I swapped to the 2e-telu engine. They cost me around $350nz from memory which is quite expensive but they were a one off as no aftermarket extractors were available off the shelf.
  14. From memory the idle speed is 795rpm or there abouts.
  15. Excellent name my friend. Your parents named you well. My name is also Stu Jones
  16. Why not look at using a 1uz engine?
  17. The one in Glenns car was a one off but we are working on a cast version. Currently the mould for the cast is being modified as its not perfect in our eyes yet. It is close thou. Once its all sorted I'll post the details and cost here. And yes shipping to the uk could be arranged.
  18. HP? Dunno. Glenn never got round to putting the car on the dyno but he sure should have. He once estimated at around 350hp that was a pure guess.
  19. Its was a custom made bellhousing as the w5* box never came out with a 4age bellhousing. A link ECU (NZ made) computer was used. It was sent back to LINK for a re-program to include the anitlag function (comes standard in the linkplus ecu). The 4agze ecu is limited in its use with a turbo setup as its ign/timing maps are not really suited for the turbo application. Saying that they will map to 14psi before hitting the boost cut so are a good start. At 18 psi Glenn pulled a 13.1 sec quarter mile. Huge traction issues unfortunatly. He's currently in the process of building a 1uz mid mount twin turbo kp starlet. Tubbed rear etc. Currently looking for sponsorship too.
  20. The 4efte will bolt straight in with no problems. You may have some clearance problems with the 4efte alternator so use the 2e unit as its much smaller and fits perfectly. Also the engine will bolt straight up to your gearbox without any modification. This will allow you to avoid any cv and shaft changes if the gt box is different to your own - I don't know what gearbox your car is using so can't really help you there. But as a warning I've blown up 5 c150 gearboxes with my 2et and 4efte engines - mainly due to being a rapist - so be warned when you start modding it. As a stock setup with say 13psi you'll have no probs. But ultimatly the c52 gearbox is the one to go for. The wiring is not too tricky to figure out if you have a basic understanding of the toyota efi system. If you send me an email I can send you the ecu pin out diagrams I've made up by taking the cover off the ecu and working it all out. Could save you some time. The fuel pump wiring will be relatively easy, just run a relay using the ecu trigger signal. You will need to swap your fuel tank for a efi version with internal baffles and probably also install a fuel return line as being a carby currently it will probably not be there. The intercooler can be made to fit by removing some of your bonnets support runners (on the underside). This is by no means a good solution but does allow you to get the car running at least. Dependant on room I'd either go for the stock top mount and a custom bonnet vent or a water/air system which you can pretty much place anywhere - within reason. Send me some pics of the car and space in the front and I may be able to figure out something that will fit. Ive had experience with a few different types of intercoolers so may be able to find one that will fit. Hope this helps - good luck with your conversion.
  21. Im not 100% sure but I think www.bodykit.co.nz has resellers near you. Send them and email and see what the story is.
  22. Take one rwd starlet, add 4agze turbo, w55 (supra) gearbox, hilux diff setup, 25psi, antilag, 60hp shot of nos and you have.....
  23. Ive played with the 2e, 2et, and 4efte engines and can comment on all of them. The 2e engine is not too bad in itself. Especially the efi version. I had the 2e-elu engine originally in my EP71 starlet and it responded well with a cold air induction system, custom made extractors and a 2.25 inch exhaust. With those mods there is a quite noticable powerband around 4500 rpm where the revs really started to take off. The next engine I had in the car was the 2e-telu engine (sohc turbo efi). Response compared to the N/A engine was no way near as good but once the turbo spooled up there were quite noticable the power gains. I ran a vr4 front mounted intercooler and a 2.5 inch exhaust along with the stock turbo and 10-12 psi of boost. No huge band of power was felt but the smooth even revs were very cool. The turbo probably needed upgrading to produce some real power from the engine but I was content as it was. The next (and current) engine was the 4efte (dohc turbo efi). The first noticable change was the exhaust note. Completely different, sounded a lot more throatier. Power was also up on the 2et engine but gone was the smoothness of the rev range. I used the same intercooler setup and exhaust and similar boost. In this stage of modification the car ran a 14.5 sec quarter mile at 10psi of boost. Not bad for a pretty much stock engine. I did start getting all the bits together for a turbo upgrade but sadly someone crashed into me and wrote the car off. I'm currently looking for a new shell to swap all the running gear over into and will continue with the turbo upgrade. I would definitly go for the 4efte conversion if I were you. Same engine mounts and same gearbox mounts, but with new wiring and intercooler piping changes. Very worth while
  24. Another option is to use a water/air intercooler setup. Could solve your fitting issues.
