Good to see the engine bay getting a thorough overhaul. Can you give us a run down on what the engine specs and plans are? What long motor and carbs have you got there? :tu:


Sorry for the late response! So, I decided to keep the L20 for a few reasons,

- Car will primarily be a cruiser, don't need too much power.
- Compression was really good (motor was rebuilt at some point in Japan)
- Something about having the original L20a is very appealing to me

As far as carbs, went with a complete Weber 40 DCOE kit



I respect that. Here in Australia I keep getting asked why I'm not using an RB26 or fuel injection. Some people just don't get it hey. There is something to be said for originality over power. :)

Keep up the great work.

Absolutely gorgeous. I love the classy metallic gold scheme vs. the overdone red/polished look that's common.

^ Not sure of brand, but it's from Rubber Soul.

As you can see, I'm going for that super clean engine bay. I'm on the fence if I should delete the A/C and just store it. I don't use it too often, but kinda torn...

If you check on ebay, there is a vendor that (rather oddly) lists an alloy radiator for KGC10

Do you have the one that is on Ebay? Wanted to purchase due to price, just worried about Quality of product.

Mine is a triple-cored version of the stock copper rad, but I have been curious about that eBay one tho :)

Some more updates... almost done!

Rear subframe needed to be removed in order to weld on the camber kit.

Image

Custom wires so the appearance would be much cleaner then going over the valve cover

Image

Stock linkage was too long so they had to cut it, shorten it and re-weld it back together.

Image

new battery box in trunk
Image

new PCV and coolant catch cans
Image

before and after for the rear camber kit.... decided to powdercoat the rear cross member since it was out anyways.

Image
