Turbo 4age tercel

I'm just posting this for now as a teaser. Still have a lot of work to do, and I'm not great at documenting my work. I've had a few people inquire about it so here are a few pictures.

Re: Amazing 1984 Tercel Rally Build by Verve Racing

That sounds promising NWMO, it will be interesting to hear what kind of engine it will be in 1st. gen Tercel. And he is also knowing what he is doing since that Tercel was so quick. Hi, im the one who messes around with these engines and what to find their limits. I boosted a 3a safely to 8psi, bum...

its way easier and cheaper to ship a pumpkin / third member than it is to ship a whole axle.

Pretty clean! The first gens suffer from severe rot in the rear quarters and control arms...this one, while not spotless, is prolly one of the cleanest first gens ive had!

Might be picking up this gem soon

Went and looked at this "minty" sr5 hatch. Always wanted one, and I think it'll go well with the turbo 4age hatch im putting together! It doesnt have all the sr5 features I'd like (alloys, chrome package, sun roof) but this will prolly be the last clean one in the area that I can get my ha...

Re: New to me Tercel rundown

Hey Murph, Welcome to the board! Being an 87’, having the clutch in should be required, to start the car. The “kill” switch is something I’m not familiar with (and likely isn’t stock). It sounds like somebody’s answer to avoid starting the car in gear, but being an 87’, I think it should have had “...

Re: ISO transmission/ advice

Hey all, I got my first Tercel recently and just got the engine in line and seeming to run good. Now onto the tranny it’s an automatic, it slips a whole lot from second to third and rarely even makes it up to third, also shifting into reverse is a big nasty slam. So, I’m ISO a good condition manual...

Re: 3D printed Synchros?

When I worked at a machine shop that specialized in gears, i had them quote me on a new input shaft. costs alone, labor excluded was 180. Out the door pricing was ~600 per shaft :/

Re: 1985 Tercel 4wd Restoration

what a shame. I would be tempted to set up a booby trap to teach this jackass a good lesson. one of the many "benefits" of living in a high density city. OTOH, it sometimes pays to drive a beater with bad body work, urban camouflage. booby traps are illegal and get your ass sent straight ...
