so here it is taking shape now, my truck, finally getting some power!
started off as a standard EA81, single hitachi carb power truck, found on ebay UK in mint condition, which has now changed drastically over the past two years, and yet to change more yet!
here is how its been for the last year odd, with a few small alterations here and there after this piccy was taken
the love of old skool rally cars and AE86 and the like drift cars and the like, inspired me to modify the thing that i love, and all i have ever wanted, i love imprezas and all that, but i have fallen big time for the EA's in the last few years! hence the changes!
so after a spec list including:
-subaru 'lowbar' rollbar
-2 maxtel 100W lights
-4 55W fog/driving lights
-Custom made tonnou cover
-Cherry bomb 3" straight through back box
-Facet competition fuel pump
-K&N style breather filters
-high voltage coil
-armtech electronic rev limiter
-52mm oil pressure guage (both in a pillar mount)
-K&N air filter
-A bar instead of bullbar
-3rd brake light
-weller style, white 8 spoke 16x6 rims, running yoky 205/45/16s
-sparco sprint 5 buckets
-lowered 40mm all round
-sparco rally steering wheel
-bumper bumpettes removed
-tinted rear lights and indicators
-sub woofer and some decent components
its turned out as it is now
after much buggering around with front driveshafts, i gave in, and now run RWD perminently, and this is how its gonna stay! hence the want to make it a more performanced based truck
then came the time for some power
the new long block
the parts altogether, which include SUB 4 dualport heads (ready to go off and be machined) and the matched weber IDF 40's
no more engine! lol
all the parts again
the old engine!
the underneath, with the crossmember alteration to fit the extra exhaust due to the dual ports rear port location (not finished, just a basic shape)
all in all, the engine has
-highlift custom cam from SUB4
-Dual port heads, skimmed for compression uprate
-Twin 40 IDF webers with custom inlet manifolds
-4 branch custom stainless exhuast manifold and alterted crossmember
-high quality bearings, seals, rings all renewed throughout with a brand new old pump
-lightend and rebalanced flywheel
-SUB 4 water circulatory system
more to come so damn soon! including front spillter, adjustable shocks and coilover conversion within the next few weeks!
