Re: 2UR-GSE 5-Liter QuadCam N.A. V8

only sensible normally aspirated choice for the old AE was a 1st gen UZ imo. Stock 12sec full street capapble.

Re: 7AG build thread!

odd enough MRP chose a stock 20V head/oe cam on his 440hp 7AG beast. Hit a 'wall' with oem valvesprings iirc. RollaChriz 550+hp street 7AG thru a stock 16V head/oe cam. So ya never know with these heads, until 'performance' tested Obviously both boosted tho. A TON of n.a. 7AG builds documented &...

AE86 Beast.. of a different brand

For years I've posted on here, that a mazda BP 1.8 would be a good swap candidate
Stock would be a decent performance boost. Boosted they rip, mild-to-wild
Lotsa supercharger flavours.... or turbo mental, if you like. 8sec 5spd street car is nutz

with the basic 'dial', you may be able to find a sweet spot for low speed assist... switch off for higher speeds Would be a tremendous and worthwhile improvement, most likely Adding a steering quickner to power steering, may do the trick as well.

Re: Ultimate Steering Rack for the AE86

if quickened manual is so annoying at in-town low speed & parking... a basic EPS operate only then, fixes that
A tremendous improvement, I'd think. At-speed behaviour and centering 'should' remain unchaged, and effort a non issue then
