Re: WTB 4AGE RWD Waterpump / Thermo Housing and Plumbing

It is pricey.....i havent seen many for sale and when they come up they are pricey.....nothings set in stone.....i'll do best offer too. I just price my stuff comparable to others i've seen.....you got yours for $60. That's reasonable....maybe i'll reconsider....just make an offer. Like I said I ha...

Re: Dash Harness - What is this for?

Pardon my ignorance guys, last question. I understand that wiring harnesses are different between Zenki and Kouki. I still need to find a front headlight harness. I bought the engine and dash harness from someone in the Bay Area, but now I realize I have no idea which GTS harnesses I have. I trust t...

Re: Dash Harness - What is this for?

Edit: Ok I know what's going on....you are doing an sr5 to gts swap....the gts has a different ac harness as well that apparently you didnt get. You are still using your sr5 ac harness? Here's a pic of what the gts harness entails. http://i909.photobucket.com/albums/ac294/notnilc20/Mobile%20Uploads...

Re: Kitsunami's 86 SR5 to GTS swap

Took out my SR5 Dash Harness and installed the GTS Harness. Fun note, I found a spare key buried so far in the dash that I can almost gaurantee the last owner forgot about it long ago. Many of the smaller interior pieces were so brittle. More things for my shopping list, joy. http://i65.tinypic.com/...

If you have the AE86 GTS water pump, fit the AE92 thermostat housing to it. One of my friends did it years ago to switch electric fans.

Better safe than sorry I'd say. I have the GTS sandwich plate and oil cooler if you want to make an offer on either. I am sure the sandwich plate is pretty similar on the AW11 as the stock GTS though. That being said, I ran without an oil cooler for a few years with no issues but I am in Southern C...

Re: Question regarding stock AW11 Oil Cooler in my Eight Six

Also, It might be worthwhile to note that I'll be using an AE92 remote thermo setup so I can have an e-fan. I seem to recall the the stock oil cooler systems in these are cooled with the engine coolant, so I don't know how that would look with plumbing.

Re: Opinions on Sr5 20v swaps vs GTS 20v swaps and conversions and everything else

If you spend the effort and truly upgrade an SR5 to a GTS spec, you should have the privilege of calling your 86 a GTS, I guess is what I was trying to convey. Hell, it's easy (albeit expensive) to just go out and buy a running GTS. but I think I'm going to get more value out of a swap. It teaches ...

Re: Opinions on Sr5 20v swaps vs GTS 20v swaps and conversions and everything else

Didn't quite mean to stir a pot here people, my bad. I equally don't understand why people think that they can tell others that they drive an SR5 even if said person went through all the trouble of fully converting one to a GTS. Purism, in my mind, is very shortsighted.
