You mean to say you've never seen a T18?
They were sold here, except with a 3TC engine instead of the athsmatic 4K/4AC found in the more common KE70/AE71. This would be a TE72 in Australia.

Nice car mate, needs better wheels though!

Did some brakes overhaul. replaced both rear brake cylinder and brake shoes. overhaul front caliper and replaced brake pads. Planning to replace the brake master cylinder and the power assist cylinder with a double diaphragm for better braking. lowered front already and lowering the rear will be next. 8)

Wow that LB is very clean. The motor sounds very good. Did you notice a big difference in power.

Hi,
Good looking motor...

Can you tell me does a 4branch 3TC header fit on the 2TB head?

Can't find a 4branch header for my TE71 coupe with the 2TB engine :cry:

ok, so only maintenance work? have you kept the front solid discs? and rear brake cylinder?
sometimes, on mountain roads my brakes tend to fatigued... maybe resolve with discs and calipers from ae86

great job you have there :tu:

Yeah,thanks man. :) Brakes are working fine though still stock and after some maint.But it seems they are not as sensitive as my other rides brake, so I'm planning to do an upgrade like replacing the brake booster with a bigger one or same size with a double diaphragm and maybe a smaller bore brake master cylinder. :wink:
