    Torsen diffs

    got lucky this weekend at the local junkyard. Wrecked FR-S. 40% off day so I figured what the hell and pulled the diff, ended up paying $58 for it. Not too shabby. Figure I could weld the open diff I'm pulling out and slap it in the fr-s housing and sell it to a wannabe drifter ZN6 owner and actually make some money lol...

    digital speedometer x8

    ar5, theres a trigger wheel on the tailshaft thats read by a vss in the same rough location as the speedo drive on the r154. unsure if its actually part of the tailshaft or removable. I guess its possible if it is removable to replace it with a worm gear but thats a big if and then theres the whole issue of the speedo drive gear being at the right height off of the tailshaft housing for the gears to mesh and finding the right gears for the correct speedo reading. Being that the trans is already in the car i'm thinking it might be easier to mod the cluster for a digital speedo.
  6. Megan rear arms are now available, decent prices too:

    Didnt realize the new T2 torsens in the FRS had friction plates on the ends of the worm gears. Were the older t2's the same?

    Was there a mx83 speedometer that was driven off a VSS rather than cable driven other than the digital cluster? Or a speedometer off an entirely different car that could work in the stock location of the cluster (same size with matching reset button location) thats vss driven? I don't want have to buy one of these to drive drive the stock mechanical speedo off a vss https://www.speedhut.com/Speedbox.html I'll probably go with a cheap gps speedo until i figure out something that will look stock. May just say fuck it and have to deal with it but thought I'd ask if its been done before

    1JZ-FSE Questions

    Not worth it. fse is for economy not power. Its a redheaded stepchild in the JZ family so no telling what regular maintenance parts you can't get. 11:1 compression and only makes about as much as a 2jzge. I'd look into going 2JZGE, You can NA-t it if you want to make more power and they're tons cheaper, in my experience there's at least a couple in every wrecking yard I've gone to and parts are available at every auto store. Either that or 1uzfe.
  11. regular roll center adjust, corrects lower control arm angle to help eliminate bump-steer Ackerman adjust gives near zero Ackerman so front wheels don't fight each other at extreme counter-steer gives parallel steering NCRCA: Negative Camber roll center adjust, same as regular roll center adjust but adds negative camber to wheel by pushing hub out same as longer lower control arms would do. I do believe they are aluminum with steel locating dowels
  12. technotoytuning evolved rca's. Waiting on mine for the mx83 currently, their email said they're currently in production

    Rear Upper Control Arm ball joint cheap fix

    yaris one is way too small. Compared the 4runner one mentioned here to a tacoma one, 4runner being 43.35mm and tacoma 44mm diameter looks like it might do the trick tapers are a bit different though but no telling the 4 runner one actually fit how it should in the upright anyhow so the tacoma one could be correct entirely. 4runner 43310-39016: http://www.jikiu.com/catalogue/374950 tacoma 43310-09015: http://www.jikiu.com/catalogue/374949
  14. Well this looks like the perfect fit if dimensions listed are accurate for the part: JIKIU - BH21195B http://www.jikiu.com/catalogue/679972/ -edit- Verified dimensions (Jikiu — BH21195 — 48*38*14) Japanese made too!
