Im thinking of getting an ae86 which path do u think i should take the supercharged 4AGZE or the turbo path the SR20DET (They are easy to find as here in aus we get the silvia k's etc.).

well who is gonna' be doing the work and how good is that person(s) at fabricating?

if the person doing the install is good at custom work, then i'd say drop in a CA18DET (i'm not a big SR20DET fan, but if that's what floats you boat....)

if the person doing the swap is not super skilled (just basic mechanical skillz) then go for the 4AGZE b/c it would be more easy and straight forward (but still some fabbing to be done there too)

*on a side note though, one day i want an AE86 coupe with a CA18DET in it....but that's just me :D *

im kinda leaning towards the CA18DET also due to being a cheaper option than the sr20 it all depends really on how much cash i have.

it would be cool if you built up the 4age and slapped a small turbo on there. that would be cool. hehe.

Having owned an AW11, 4AGZE is the most reliable option. They relatively easy to find and bolt right in. If your feeling crazy you could always go the HKS twincharge route, good luck finding the kit though.

yeah HKS gear here in oz is hella expensive and even if i could find the HKS twincharge the price would be beyond my league. Im stuck to a budget of around 12 grand for the car and mods as this is will be my practice car i dont want to go over the top in mods.

are there kits to drop honda engines in an 86?! Because there is this Spoon engine that revs to 12,000 RPM! That engine would be so sick in an 86:D

don't think it's a kit...it's a custom job done by HotStaff.

did you check out the link?

12k for mods on a ae86! holy crap!. 4k on suspension and 8 k on engine mods... whoa. that sounds like a dream to me. sr20 in that thing and call it a day. :P dont they make kits in japan for this swap also? i swear i've seen it somewhere

yeah...hey if you run across that give me the link b/c i'd be really interested in that....if there is a kit it's probably just like custom engine and tranny mounts. you'll still have to do a lot of fabbing. did you notice how they had to hack the firewall and the tranny tunnel to get the F20C and 6 speed to fit? the did a beautiful job of it...but i seriously doubt anyone sells a "drop-in" kit for that. too much fabbing. but i'm sure you can find custom motor and tranny mounts. like i said, if you find that stuff let me know.


thanks

20V sucks.

Stay with your current 16V and build it.

I have been using this motor for quite sometimes now and It ain't what I expected it to be.

Stay with your current 16V and build it. Run cams and will probably out run the 20V in low end.
