The EJ engines can run wide open on 35-45 psi with adequate volume flow rate. The walbro should be fine if it's within the psi spec. For higher psi than that, one might need different hoses and clamps or there would be leaks. I'm running a pump off of a EFI EA82.

So are you going to switch to a duel A arm suspention? I had been thinking of trying to use the toyota hubs too but wasn't sure what to do about the axles other than trying to make custom ones.

I am trying to keep true to the original suspension design of the GL. Honestly I've been very tempted to take the easy way out and go to straight axles, but Im not about the easy route. I will retain the strut setup in front and swing arm in rear. The locking hubs are for the rear. I also have an r200 coming. Originally I was going to get an arb fir the r200 but won't need to with the locking hubs. So I will either weld the diff again or get a spool. Im not trying to do anything crazy, just want to use heavy duty parts. Lots more to come! Plus those Toyota 4pots calipers are huge :)

All of this will require a full set of custom axles. Pricey but I shouldnt break another axle again!

Did another round of re-valving on the rear shocks. Another step in the right direction, wont know 100% till I get some time in with the butt dyno. 

 

Here is a shot with the correct springs.

I like that it is actually ENGINEERED and not just hacked together,

you can see the thought and care gone into this project. Lovely stuff!

Actually RUNS IT! not afraid to take it out and use it!

This is the guy you want to take with you on any serious trail ride...(gotta have a decent Tech with you that understand the "interconnectedness of things")

Bravissimo!

R200? what's that?  Aren't sccobs either R160 or R180?  And I hear ARB is workingon a 180 locker...

Please educate me on the 200 bit?

 

Also a little lost on the locking hubs mod. . . . what would that do for you?  I've had my (front) spindles and bearings apart but haven't seen the front torn out of a real 4x4 to get the locking hub deal. . . 

 

always great to read your inspirations K!  and as always, great fab and build work!

Ciao

The family went out on fathers day for a little run in the desert. Elevation was -150ft and temps were over 110deg. The car worked pretty well, the a/c had a tough time keeping us cool but with no window tint, 2 adults, 1 child and 2 dogs in the car it was what to expect. Then we stopped for a little sight seeing leaving the car running one of the water lines to the heater core popped! I just looped it back to the motor bypassing the heater core and we called it a day. Way too hot. But you only live once.

Thank you.

The theme for the EA82 is "beg, borrow or steal" I'm just gonna build a functional daily driver, wheeler. So far aside from the purchase and transport out Ca I've only spent $15.00 on this. What I got for the $15 is 4 BFG at's (little bit of tread left) and 4 Toyota 4-Runner 15'' wheels. I also got a Subaru Nardi steering wheel for free, 3 Hella 500 lights for free and the front seats out of a 2007 WRX for free. I did some trade work for the re-surfacing of the heads and some gaskets. Its almost time to spend some money though. It needs a water pump, power steering pump, hoses, hose clamps, belts.....etc.

Edit: also hoping to find some scrap soon (like today) for the lift. If not I will use some material I have in the shop.

The WRX is back under the knife also :banana: Low, wide, 30'' tires and double the wheel travel.


I have a 94 loyale wagon, and I'm thinking about buying some wax seats. Will wax seats need an adaptor? Or will they slide right in?

No they did not bolt right up. If you look back in my journal I have some photos of what I had to do to make them work.

They did not bolt into my car. I had to do some cutting and welding to get them in.

I got another muffler I did not know I needed....free. Well I paid for it once. It was on the wifes car that we sold then it was removed for a cat back system and given back to me. Its a stainless Magnaflow 3''.  I think its a bit smaller than the one I have. The one I have on there now rattles against the car because its a touch too wide. I think the Magnaflow is overall smaller. I've been really busy but may try to get it on before the Gorman Ridge Rally. I am also going to try a pretty tough trail on my way to the rally.
