Re: Winter Tercel Project

check / replace the trans gear oil before driving somewhere. doenst take long for these transmissions to fail when they get low on oil.

Re: convert auto trans to manual?

unless your auto car is 87-88(?) you already have 3.73's. i believe the last two years of the auto got switched to 3.9. 83-84 had 3.73 gears, 85-87 had 4.11. manuals, yes. autos were different. they carried 3.73 till 86, then switched to 3.9 in 87-88. bet you also didnt know that there are differen...

Re: parting out 1983 sr5 wagon

why are you parting it out? the body in the pictures looks decent, dent and rust free bodies alone are getting hard to find. it might be worth assembling the parts and getting it back on the road, a running tercel in the PNW will sell for $4000 and up, even if not perfect. that is likely way more t...

Re: convert auto trans to manual?

https://i.imgur.com/qRYzT6g.jpg I am about to begin the automatic-to-manual surgery on my Tercel! Just picked up this carcass in Sierra Vista, AZ. 400+ mile round trip but well worth it. All the parts necessary in one inclusive package. Very nervous for the operation but very glad I've got a full d...

Re: Amazing 1984 Tercel Rally Build by Verve Racing

Hello SirFoxx, I am glad to know that you are around at forum. It sounds to me that you know what you are doing. I hope that you could share us some content when that 4AGTE engine is finished. 200hp is really magical number for 4AGTE-engine. How new 4AGTE it will be? I have understood that later on...

Re: Turbo 4age tercel

Nice work Keegan, What purpose is the stock radiator going to serve? I see you’re working around it, but understand the large AL radiator will cool the engine? Piping/hoses will be interesting. Do you expect this set up to have some of the same “heat” challenges (exhaust heat melting wires, etc.) a...

Re: Turbo 4age tercel

Few more pics. Got the intercooler and radiator mounted. The pics don't show it well, but it's going to be a huge pain to make the piping and upper radiator line. I still need to figure out where to put the blow off valve as well. The fan is a cheapo one my roommate had laying around. I'll probably ...

Re: Turbo 4age tercel

Very interesting project. It will be very quick since that chassis does not weigh much. I see also that you have manufactured exhaust manifold for that. Do you need to modify fuel tank and lines for that modification? I have understood that 4AGE has fuel pump inside tank normally. The exhaust is a ...

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...
