Pokemon Training - AE86 SR5GTS

Postby Saigons Son » Thu Nov 19, 2015 7:16 pm

Hello-
Long Term drift build. [i"]"Charmander"[/i]
Location: Nova/ Pallet Town
1986 Sr5 hatch Converted to GTS
Carb->EFI
SOHC-> DOHC

Image
Image
Image

As found on craigslist Fall'06 in RVA (thus potato camera) when i attended VCU.
-skated 3 miles to get it.

Blew the poor 4ac spring'07. Decided to go Full GTS swap and imported a parts car from Queens, NY with help from a friend.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Spent almost $150 on tolls! they charge you for each axle, and we had it on a flatbed

From Queens to NoVA

Image

Got to swapping with lots of Slideways homies.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
4AC SOHC vs 4AG Smallport Hi-Comp DOHC

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
4AG in!

Image
Image

For anyone whose curious: The only thing the same about a sr5 and the GTS is:
Body & panels & Lights/ Dashboard &interior plastics& carpet/ Suspension/ All Steering components/ Cross-member.
That's it. Everything else has to be swapped

Image
Getting started on rearend/ gastank etc

Image
Zenki Disk Rear

20-30 year old bushings need a refresh. Went Prothane for poly bushings
Image
Image
Easiest way is to burn them out, especially if you don't have a press... Probably the most fun I've had working on a car
Image

Image
Image

Image
Image
Coupe stripped (Wiring harness harvested from behind the dash as well as e-brake cables for disc rear)

Image
All of the engine bay and dash wiring has to be swapped for GTS
Image
Check the dope exhaust. — with hks high power.
Image
Front end off coupe, enlonged studs/ drilled rotors/ tokico shox/ lowering Springs
Image
Hit the bay with Purple power, highly recommended!

Stripped everything I could from the coupe and sent it on its way. Tried to give it away, no one wanted it.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
RIP


Image
Image
And then there was one.
Kinda miss my louvers...

Image
Traded a 5 speed swap for these Konig Re-winds. Crazy part of the story is the kid got robbed for his whole AE86 shortly afterwards.
I ended up selling these wheels years later

Image
Note found the windshield

Image
Picked up a Cressida lip. Not sure what year. As you can see, it needs to be shortened.
Image
Before: GTS plastics
Image
Trimmed
Image
Drilled and ziptied onto GTS lip
Image
Image
After



COROLLA DOWN!!!!

Car spun a bearing summer 08, So i picked up an AE101 (Silvertop) block from Devo in 757. I would plan to mate my 16v head to this block. 20v blocks have 5 recessed areas on each piston. This is not a problem as this combination is non-interference.
Image


Image
Devo draining the new block
Image
Also picked up from Devo
Image
Devo's now VQ swapped Coupe
Image

Wild Beedrill swarm has appeared! Charmander use your raid and broom attack!
Fought off a hornets nest.
Image

Image>
Here we go again, Back at the Poke-center

Image
OEM HG
Image
New OEM mounts, trans is the same part # as TRD.. so i figured it wasn't worth the extra price tag
Image electric fan wired in. So much room for activites!
Image
Image
Image
Cleared any and all rust from the engine bay and repainted. (pic taken half way through)
Image
Image
Image
Replaced clutch master and slave

3rd Engine now installed
Image

After install I could not get the car to start and was self diagnosing for over a year

Pokemon training would then go on a 3 year hiatus as i got busy with graduating and my DJ career.

Ah man I remember that so well. Your car is the reason why I hate AE86s. That GTS swap from an SR5 is insane.

Hah the GT-S conversion is ridiculous if you dont have all the parts.
Sway is like a race horse; if you push it sometimes, it's ok, but if you are hard on it all the time, then it's going to break its ankle and then you will have to shoot it.

Jan 2014 - Moved to NYC and finally had a solid income.
Corolla still residing in VA (I would commute to work on the car once a month)

Image
Full open hood when you trim the hinges!

Status: Car doesn't start and it has been sitting for about 3.5 years.
-Replaced battery.
-switched starter

Image
Found a starter hanging out in the garage

Found out I had the starter wired incorrectly.
-cleaned all ground and ran some new ones to the chassis... still nothing

Checked and replaced whole fuel system... Still wouldn't start
-Drained tank via hand pump (my aftermarket tank doesn't have a drain hole!)
-Ran my own steel braided lines (sr5 carb lines are smaller in diameter than GTS)
-Replaced Fuel pump and pickup
-Cleaned injectors off of car with sonic machine (Thanks Clayton) Installed new o-rings and spacers

Some reasons why sr5 lines aren't ideal (although i ran it like this for over a year no problems)
-smaller diameter forces the fuel pump to work harder to move enough fuel (shorter pump life)
-fuel is forced through smaller lines heating up the fuel (less efficient fuel)

Image
Made my own 3/8 lines for fuel delivery. Nylon coated Steel Braided

Image
Contrary to popular believe. -Not- Discontinued. FP bracket/ strainer/ new denso pump
Image
So much better than my backyard repairs on the old unit... i was leaking fuel out of a broken line.

Winter 15 Problem Solved!!!!- Engine Running

Image
Turns out my injector resistor, located next to the AFM wasn't grounded properly (missing bracket in picture)
This caused my injectors not to fire... At least my entire fuel system has been replaced.

Re: Pokemon Training - AE86 SR5GTS -Carbs Again?!

Postby Saigons Son » Wed Mar 30, 2016 3:18 pm

Picked up a spare smallport along with NEW weber 40dcoe carbs for the low low... Got everything needed for the set-up but didn't install - My car was finally running and I didn't feel like doing anything drastic.

Image
Poor Integra - My #da9 is now a midship

Image
Webers

Image
Low PSI Carter 4070, and Holly regulator for the Webers
Image
Image
Image
Friend, Ryan from NC ported my new intake manifold and tapped it for a vacuum source

Image
Got MSD 6al- Programmable and tac adapter. This allows me to pre-program ignition curve via PC.

Car driving great!

Got a clean JDM wheel to replace old guy

Image
Image
So happy to have the car running properly.... Ready for Summit.



COROLLA DOWN!!!!


Image
On the way to the first event of the season, and the trans blew!!!!!

Image
Front bearing took a shit.

Image
Silly T50 , you're not much bigger than a super charger. #transmissionimpossible

Image
Clayton saved me with a spare T50 ( I would have the car back on the road within a couple days worth of visits)


Image
Finally made it out to a drift Nirvana! First day ended around 2:00 due to my alternator shredding a belt. (drove home on half a belt o_0)
Pulley had a small gash on it. Switched out a spare alternator with a new belt so solve.




Aug 15 - Completed full day at DN, able to complete large portions of the skid pad. (Car running on only 3 cylinders for some reason)

Image
S Chasis everywhere




Nov DN prep:
-Install T3 Coilovers 8k/6Kg springs
-RCA (help with bumper steer)
-Prothane front bushings
-Braided brake lines
-install BuddyClubII exhaust
-Clean/ repack front wheel bearings

Missed event due to BMC seals going out!!! Installed a new one

Image
Image

Image
Image
Image
Rears
Image
Prothane

Image
Pulled off old Tokicos / lowering springs

New OEM BMC




Image
Exhaust: Buddy Club Spec II

Image
side by side with heat wrapped OBX Header

Image
Unit was originally welded together, then cut for shipping. I plan on replacing this w. V-Band Clamps

Image
USDM Tow Hook has to be cut to fit the under axle exhaust

Image
Can't really see the exhaust, have it with the silencer here.

Corolla has two tow hooks, one on each side, so i still have one.

There is no way to install jdm made exhausts without removing the drivers side tow hook. It's part of the USDM bumper and gets in the way.
