Hi From Japan Just Registered & Some Questions

Postby jdmdailydriver » Thu Apr 02, 2015 2:33 am

Hi all , awesome forum !!! Been reading it for years but first time to register.
I have never owned an AE86 but have friends that build them and hoping to own one myself some time soon.
Closest car I have owned was a Eunos Roadster , I drive a JZX90 Chaser at the moment etc and love the GX71 series Mark ii etc.

Recently I have recently found a set of used Trust headers and wondering what a fair price would be for them , they are well used but in fair condition one weld but the rest is good.

I have someone that wants them but not sure what to charge as a fair price.

I also have a Japanese connection who is looking to get rid of a whole bunch of old JDM parts and a fair few AE86 among them.

Its just hard to find price on these old parts and just wondering if anyone can help me out.

Thanks!!!

Too many to list ...even had a Route 6 full transmission which I think he sold but I can check ...he had that for ages and I didn't know what to ask for it because he wanted to sell it.

He has almost a full storage container full ...

Original period turbo manifold and full kit including HKS ECU and a larger Evo turbine...
I will try get some photos up

Stuff like side indicators , mirrors stock and electric full bumpers , bumper brackets all JDM ...A couple of TRD diffs and tons more.

Here are the headers , I will cut them at the end where the steel part starts , I think they are the titanium ones but not 100% , I will find out this week as I haven't jacked this car up yet. You can see the weld on the first pipe.

Am I not allowed to post images yet?

That Trust header likely only fits right hand drive models... Parts that can be used on either rhd, or lhd will be the most valuable because those parts have the largest market.

As to parts value... that is always tough to determine. 25 years ago I was working in the vintage Mustang biz and that was always a problem... determining how much $ the market will bear.

Great example is this "fool" (or not??) on Yahoo Japan - http://page8.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/h187892207 - he is asking 258000 yen($2,153.78) for 4 TRD pistons. At that price you can have 3 sets custom made :shock:

OK good info there , I am not surprised to see that price on those , in Japan AE86 parts are ridiculously expensive more so than the rest of the world , but especially discontinued new parts !!!

I was pretty sure the headers on these cars are always on the same side regardless to weather its RHD or LHD ???

LHD models have a steering column sharing space with the header. The vast majority of jdm headers are for RHD models, and aren't designed to clear the steering column on a LHD car.

By the way my buyer knows about the RHD to LHD problem and he will modify it to fit.

I was thinking $300 might be an OK price...
