 RoCo's v8 ae86 Reply  Edit


well guys starting the thread on the new build, Europe's First V8 ae86. now some people will like the idea some will hate it, but ive always had a thing for the v8 engine and the ae86, so why not combine the two? this is my build over the last few weeks, getting ready for Prodrift/D-rift, and time attack, + hopefully a few rounds abroad!

basicaly starting off with a trueno ae86,
1uzfe 8cyl, 32v Quadcam, have to keep her toyota!
4 stud s13 rear axle, to keep same wheel fitment
supra w58 gearbox.

this is what i started off with.

started to trip her down back in january 08, to see what i have to work with?

then cut up the back end, choped the floor and the chasis mount for the panhard rod!

the itb’s arrived


the engine, what I started with, a old v8 out of a soarer.

and what I made of it, built up on stock internals, new belts and gaskets,
ae101 itb’s, custom manifold adaptor, stainless exhaust manifolds, and I polished
the rocker covers, pretty standard but good for 300+bhp.

itb’s, pure sex,,,,,,

throttle linkage

custom flywheel, with auto ring gear. Takes 3sgte clutch kit.

now to mount the engine, at first glance it doesn’t look like its gona fit
but when we measured her up, its pretty tidy. i didn’t cut the bulk head, we bet it back a few inches which was more than enuf, just cut the tunnel,

The cut tunnel for the big supra box.

I then fabricated the cross member,

test fit with lotus box, have a better box coming from England

new ls400 front mounted baffled sump.

a few late nights but it’ll be worth it.

that ITB set up for the V8 is sexy. Are you planning to do any work on the engine itself?

engine in, at last,


I used mounts similar to the mk2 escort, to make
things easyr and cheeper to replace, also stiffer,

now to fabricate the tunnel. I decided to make it out of one piece sheet metal,
just to keep it looking neat
Tacked in place

and finished

seem welded the whole shell, underneath, inside, and in the engine bay, also patched up any rust, and gusseted the chasis in a few places for strength,

right, had big problems with the rear suspension, my original idea was to get ae86 coilovers so I wouldnt have to fabricate turrets in the rear, and I could change the end to suit the axle, so I bought a set, but when fittling them I relised they didnt fit???, it turns out they were for a turreted ae86.. Like ??? ???. Anyway, in the end if I was going to have to turret the rear end I was going to do it properly, so I orderd set of s13 rear coilovers, and got to work.
Big hole

Since I have the s13 rear end, which gives me about 30mm extra track each side,
I have decided to put the s13 front end in aswell. Lca’s, hubs, brakes, coilovers, and using the ae86 top mounts, and ae86 tension rods. Makes for about 40mm extra track each side on the front end, and a very big upgrade in brakes. Also the s13 steering arm is about an inch shorter, but with a ae86 manual rack and the extra track, you get a whole lot of lock.

Striped down the front end ready for new set up.

here you can see the difference in length between the two lca’s, and the length of the steering arm.

massive difference between the brakes, huge vented rotors and much bigger callipers.

started to mount the steering rack and pedal box
off the dash bar, I decided to put the box over the
rack, and not on the floor. Less room but will
look a lot tidier.
