    1986 AE82 Sedan Project

    Hey guys this is my AE82 Sedan Upgrade Project. I received the car 2 years ago, it is my first car. My father brought the car in 1987 brand new. The car came with a 1.6 8-valve Carb'd 4AC engine. I've been restoring the car and maintaining it. Exterior wise, I'am styling the car after the ae80-82 toyota sprinters. Rather than list all my mods, I'll just post the major ones.

    So far this is what I put in performance wise.
    Weber Carb 38/38 DGES
    MSD Ignition
    2.25" Exhaust

    I plan to put in a high performance camshaft as well as upgrade the suspension as I use this car on the mountain passes.

    I also have a blog about my car, kept up to date. http://ae82sedan.blogspot.com/

    The car when I first received it.



    Gradually upgrading my car.






    As it is today.

















    Let me know what you guys think, thanks.[/url]

    And can I ask, what was the purpose of swapping to the 3AC Tercel distributor? Your blog shows how, but not why?

    The Tercel 3A Dizzy allows the use of a external ignition coil, where as with the 4AC Dizzy (which came with the car) comes with a internal ignition coil. I wanted to bolt on a MSD Blaster 2 coil because I wanted a more powerful spark and upgrade my ignition system, so I had to go with a Tercel 3A Dizzy.

    Parts are somewhat easy to get, I can get replacement parts for my car @ at the local junkyard. Where I live theres a strong corolla community especially for AE8x that way I can get parts easily. However, I want JDM parts and possibly european. I especially like your front grill, unfortunately its almost impossible to get here in the United States.

    ohhh..thats nice to hear....JDM parts and especially european parts are almost finishing up and getting rarer..hehe..its easier to look for an australian spec parts as they do share some sameness with JDM..lol..but looking at your car, i estimate its a 86-87 model..
