Thanks to Partshopmax NZ, I finally got my hands on some quality coilovers. I have been amounting parts for the new build and have decided not to do things by halves. I’m currently mocking up the suspension setup along with some plans for the shell itself so will keep updating as I go.

86 Update

A couple of updates:

I have recently purchased this SR20DET conversion setup from Christchurch Corolla owner Ben and am in the process of shipping it back up to Auckland.

I’m very happy with the purchase as it is a full going conversion which includes:
S13 SR20DET/All accessories/ Loom/ ECU/ T25 Turbo/ Exhaust/ Alloy Radiator/ Intercooler/ Cross Member/ Gearbox/ Gearbox Cross Member/ Clutch Line/ Driveshaft/ G Series diff with Mounts to suit Corolla etc.

So upon awaiting for that, I sold my 4AGE motor to a good friend Richard who is putting it into a KP61 in the future which I am excited to see going.

 

And in the meantime I got myself some accessories:

Apexi Power FC / Apexi AX53B70 Tubrine (Similar to Garret GT2871R) and a Trust Muffler20140401_172323

The Turbine was imported from America and was off a Show-car over there. It had only been started up once to show it could run and turned off so the turbo is in practically brand-new condition. And with a T25/28 Flange all I need is a Manifold made up and some 550cc Injectors, maybe some Poncams and off for a tune I go.

 

Amongst all that; In the wheel department I had made the decision to go up one size to 15″ which is really a decision I made because of Tyre sizing/Compound and availability. I sold all my 14″ wheels and have started a collection of 15″ starting off with some SSR XR-4 Longchamps which I have temporarily put on the Zenki S14 Daily.

They will be widened later on probably to a 9J and 10J along with this Pair of 15″ SSR Mk III’s, which are currently sized at 15×7.5J -8

and the 15″ Set of Focus Racing 5 Spokes. These wheels have been on my wheel dream list of mine since I was about 16. They are nothing special in design etc but there is just something about them that I know will make the 86 look timeless. Still being a 80’s style wheel but bringing abit of the modern look to the car, I hope it will suit it!

Ive had this photo of this particular 86 since this Post back in 2009 and I hope the wheels above will turn out like the ones below!

The colour which is stuck in my head is the one below, not 100% committed yet but its high up there in colour choice.
