Anyone retrofitted oil squirters?

Hi guys, Anyone ever retrofitted piston oil squirters to a 4A block? I'm doing a turbo build and I'll be using 4AGZE low comp pistons and aftermarket forged rods. Like all aftermarket forged rods mine don't have the hole that spits oil onto the cylinder, like stock rods do. So I'm concerned about pi...

Use the original wires where possible.

Re: 4age on bike carbs

You will need a fuel pump so you will need a relay so you might as well keep the Circuit Opening Relay (COR) It has 5 wires but you will only need 3, I don't know AW11 wire colours but they may be similar to an AE86. Black and Red is ignition positive, equivalent to pin 30 and 85 combined. Black an...

Re: 4age on bike carbs

1. The tacho signal comes from the igniter (black wire with red rings in an AE86) it is also in the diagnosis connector as IG- if you trace this wire inside the car you can find where to connect your new ecu output to it. Also you may need to use a tacho adapter between your ecu and the rev clock, ...

Thanks guys it's clear now. What they were essentially trying to do is to separate the vapors from the oil itself. That damn complicated baffle inside the cam cover finally makes sense.

Was looking at the intake manifold today and got curious.

Why is that? And why doe...
