Different Kind of Battle Wagon

Recommended Posts

Hey guys been a while since I have had a build thread on here.

 

Last project that was somewhat cool.

5 speed GS

Ended up trading it for a IS300 and 4age swapped tercel.

Only pics of tercel I have before I owned it.

IS is just a daily for now with coils, bushing upgrades, and lsd.

 

Tercel after I got it.

haha just being funny.

 

I couldnt deal with the FWD setup so I found this 4wd version for $200 with a running motor down in oregon.

The plan is to do a rwd conversion on it.

All the project cars together. FWD tercel, Alltrac Camry (saving for latear), and 4wd Tercel.

Please stop with the 4ag pipe dreams... they are a complete waste of time and money.

 

I think I went through 10 or so before going 3S... you'd be wise to do the same

Doing more stuff than me (and most of us).

Who cares if it's 4ag and not a 3s? Current trend is beams everything (even in a few x7s lol)

Then cross breed and go AP1/AP2... I dont give a fuck... 4ag is a pile of shit that you can keep blowing money on yet will never make reliable power worth calling "fun"

 

Throwing ITB's on a shit box 4ag will net you zero gains... "it sounds/looks cool"... get fucked. Better investment would be buying an ITB adapter for a Beams and using what you already spent money on for a reasonable platform

 

And fuck a 3S X-anything... fucking retarded. I'm hoping mine will hit 250 WHP on E85 with the thinnest Toda headgasket they offer and the most cam I can throw at it keeping VVTi. And that's in a car with a 1900 lb goal. Dumping another 1000 lbs in Cressida weight would make that swap retarded.

To each his own man, dont get so worked up over where I waste my money.

Hey Rue what are you throwing your 3s into?

 

 

Got the trans out and compared.

 

4wd vs t50

Spline counts are the same and it looks like the tercel driveshift will land the t50 in the right spot.

Hm, rear diff was meant to take, what, 45% of the power of a stock 4AG.

Can't see this ending well, even with the wimp 4AG with ITBs....

 

Got to be a forum, or facebook page for ugly turdcels...

Mine is in an 85 Corolla... fuck... a long time ago I bought a new black top Beams. I picked up a cast aluminum ITB manifold out of Australia before everyone was making adapter plates and put a W58 behind it to put the shifter in the correct location.

 

Now people like Sam Q are making nice swap parts for a fair price to fix most of the problems I ran into when I did my swap. I'm using his shifter relocation kit on a RHD Levin coupe I'm working on right now. Nice machined part... wish the guy who owns the car would have bought Sam Q's ITB adapter... I'm not thrilled with the Xcessive one.

We already know that i personally dont like this build. And not that I have any room to talk since I haven't had a Xchassis in years, but isn't this kind of pushing the limits of what we want to see in these forums. I mean the members give a lot of shit to people just slapping together XM boogered drift missiles and newbs that think it's novel to put 1jzs in stupid cars.

 

The Camry alltrac is kind of nice, but not something worth sharing unless you are running a 300whp 3sgte.

 

I also get that people have more love in their garage than just the xchassis, but it's usually sparks notes from the build, not it's own thread.

 

And again, a fucking itb 1.6 fat wagon just isn't something worth sharing here. From a quality of content perspective. It's not even acceptable by way of ridiculousness, like that sr20 x72 from ages ago. It's like fucking why?

 

Edit: Sorry, I've had a salty weekend.

that blessed decal is hilarious

i do like this ugly wagons, but i hate 4ags and the lack of any part of a corolla not being absolute garbage that can not take a clutch kick or two before blowing up. and then the corolla kids asking diamond prices for their actual crap.

a friend of mine has one of these and he runs it in the bush and treats it like the hilarious cheap garbage it is.

Yea I know its not an x chassis or has a jz involved and to be honest I wasnt sure if it this build would be a good fit here but it has been a while since i've been around and it seems there are only a handful of active thread.

I do like seeing some of the other cool build that are non jz / x on here and I feel like the ugly wagon fits the some what with the ugly cress theme.

 

If everyone agrees that this shouldnt really be on here i'll abandon the thread keep it to the tercel FB groups haha.

Do you have to be all reasonable and level about it?

 

May be we could just make another build forum for other projects. That way when people are searching for jzx stuff they will know that certain hits aren't jzx related. We could call it side bitches or whatever is more clever and slang. I'd like to share my T100 "build", after I turbo it.

Hahaha sorry Jacob, i'll work on my aggressive banter.

 

I really like that idea of having an area for some non jzx projects.

It will probably get more 'build' action than what we get now.

But we will have to pull the Prince thing....

Change the name to 'The Forum Formally Known as JZXP'.

 

Na, I'm already on 50 or so forums......If I wanted to see that shit, I'd go to them.
