Re: "Kentucky AE86: A Levin Story"

Finally got around to having the exhaust made, special thanks to Matt Moore (@roller_ae86) again for welding this thing up for me. It sounds perfect. Idle/cruising its nice and quiet but really opens up whenever you get on it. Specs: Vibrant Ultra Quiet Resonator (#1140) Vibrant Streetpower Universa...

Re: What's your other car?

How does it drive? The tC always seemed like a pretty good platform variation. I liked the look. I don't know what people were expecting for the price. Granted, I don't think Toyota realized that millenials were probably not gonna be able to afford even a $17k car at the time, so it could have been...

Re: Reps or real?

The design definitely looks familiar, but the exact model doesn't ring a bell. Although given how old they look, I'd say they're original.
There has to be some kind of marking on the back that tells the info.

Re: Speeduino? Arduino powered ECU?

You have a couple of options to get that square wave signal. Easiest would be to go to the junkyard and pick a crank sensor off a 90s ford equipped with EDIS. Then you would need a trigger wheel, i used the one from T3 cause it bolts right on to their crank pulley. Make sure you use shielded wiring...

Re: FX-16 gear ratio/manual trans

Yeah I'm with Aukword. I think your best bet would be finding a smaller final drive. Surely there's an option out there for the fwd/mr2 guys out there. I know all the b-series honda dudes would swap the 5th gear out of LS integras since they're longer, but idk what thats like for the fwd 4age guys.
