Lifted Brat and Loyale build

Recommended Posts

Heres kind of a video of me doing that creek crossing. In 3WD. My friend recorded it with snapchat so the video cut out at 1 minute but I actually made it up. Rev bombed the hell out of it and spun tires. Short wheel base = win

Awesome build! How did you extend your steering rack? I’m doing a 3” lift on my ‘87 GL. Thanks!

You don’t extend your steering rack you extend the shaft and all you have to do is cut it and weld in a piece of metal go the length you need it so you add about 3 inches. Very simple!

Also checked out an XT6. He only wanted 500 for it but it was an autotragic.

Been working on the Loyale a lot. Got some wheels and 27" tires for it. Not lifted. Almost ready to drive it just needs radiator hoses.

Also scored at the Junkyard. Got DL headlights, a grille and some other small parts

Found this plastic to delete the passenger mirror. I hate the way it looks

Lots of stuff going down with the loyale recently! Picked up an EJ22 with 280K miles on it and I am going to do a basic reseal/t-belt job on it. This EJ will be boosted with a TD04 and fxt intercooler that i've had sitting in the garage for years. Got my harness trimmed by SJR and he did a great job and it only took him one day to do it. So happy that everything is coming back together in the loyale. Only thing I need to start slapping things together is an EJ 5 speed transmission and i've already two lined up, one 3.9 and the other 4.11 with matching rear diff.

We will see how she handles boost, once I get a stand-alone ecu i’d like to push at least 8 psi. It should be a fun build if she blows she blows :popcorn:

Well spoob there goes all my pictures. 

Picked up another EJ22 longblock with significantly less miles. Also will be picking up a JDM sti 5 speed and a blown WRX EJ205 this weekend both for dirt cheap.

Pretty set on my motor option now. EJ22 n/a block with EJ205 heads. Gonna be running STOCK internals CR should be high 8’s. And my block is a 96 so supposedly it’s slightly beefier pistons than 97-98. Also going to need a good tune and i’ll be running some corn.

I now have a chopped 98 2.2 harness for sale. PM me

Picked up a JDM sti 5 speed, EJ22 longblock, and EJ205 complete with bad bottom end. Got the 2.2 and 2.0 torn down the 205 heads will be getting decked friday. Ill also be picking up a 2004 wrx bulkhead, ecu, and pedal assembly friday.

He also has DW 2000cc injectors for sale at a decent price. I’m thinking that size is overkill even running e85
