 AE86 A.K.A Trouble! Reply  Edit


Hi this is a thread about my true Kouki 87 GT-S Coupe.... Got it from a buddy of mine while was I in Iraq. He put a lot of hard work in the aftermarket b-tune bumper and i was told that when he got it, that it was a "birds nest" of wiring... I bought it and its been greatness ever since.

Not many mods but heres a list of everything, and parts that came with the car.

ON CAR EXTERIOR-

*Baby Supras Powder Coated with center caps
*B-tune bumper with kouki lights
*Yellow Fogs (not sure what brand)
*Silver and Black 2-toned
*16 X 7 XXR 513 with fat tires.

SUSPENSION-
*Modified strut casings
*Coilovers all around (Meghan Maybe? has Eibach springs on the front)
*Eibach Springs
*Panhard/Lateral Bar
*T3 NRCA (first thing I did when I got the car) BIG DIFFERENCE
*TIEN Camber plates

Im not really sure what Brand the coilovers are but they are actually pretty comfy... and they have plenty of response.

INTERIOR.

*Detachable steering wheel(not sure what brand)
*Mint blue interior
*Black dash mat
*Dash has crack over the gauges but its not bad at all
*CD Player-AM/FM Blah Blah....
**Super Cold working A/C- Heat works well also
** Sunroof has no leaks- opens and closes perfectly
**working Cigarette lighter
** All interior Pieces are flawless and work. wipers, wiper fluid, light switch, panel lights etc...

ENGINE AND POWERTRAIN

*One Piece Driveshaft, not sure from where tho... lots of response tho
*Stock Bluetop 144,XXX- really strong driven it back and forth to my parents in NC from GA. about a 3.5-4 hour ride on several occasions. Never had an issue
*Exhaust (not sure what brand but sounds nice not ricey)
*New battery/Terminals
*kouki LSD


**Extra Parts**
*7rib 16V with Bluetop Head. pretty sure its a big port
*t-50 Tranny with shifter, knob.
*full suspension (stock) going to modify the casings when i do my next suspension upgrade.
*USDM Bumper With all grilles, trueno/Toyota Emblem
*Solex locks
*Brand new Armrest cover pocket thingy lol. sot sure what the exact name is
*New suspension bushings
*Cupholder/Coin holder for tray under CD Player. just need time to put it in

Thats all I can think of as of now

A few pics of the first day i got it



with my daily driver/panty dropper 05 TL 6pd-navi-Tan leather

Powder coated baby supras


Lots more to come just beings as to what needs to be done... working on getting a JDM Kouki Bumper and brackets.... the search will continue!
also finding an 16 X 7 513 xxr replacement... one day he decided to get bent outta shape
re-tint also needs to be done. well ill be back with more updates!

Alright, Recent updates....

*Kouki Bumper brackets.

Slowly but surely collecting parts as i see them at a steal price
so you sell cheap and i will buy it lol

not much of an update lol... there were other things but im having a brainfart kind of day.My Wife took Trouble to my parents house where it wlil await to be shipped to Co. in the coming month.
I have been getting the click of death at times and its really starting to frustrate me. most of the time it strts right up but other times i can get gas real quick and i hop back in it decides not to start up... just a nice click. ugh. so what i usually do is jump it off and keep moving. i disconnected my Amp and it did it again to my wife this morning. i think what may have happened is when i got back from Iraq i was too lazy to troubleshoot my stereo issues and when i took it to a buddy they put a power wire or something to my ignition to make it start up when the key is turned. thats when the problems started.... all this time i couldnt remember that i had done that but it just dawned on me the other day. so i wont see my car for another three weeks.since im about to go to AIRBORNE school. if this isnt the problem then what else could it be? the starter is pretty much brand new, it was checked... hmmmm.
like i said the previous owner said that when he got the car it was a birds nest of wiring so i may just recheck everything as time premits.

If your driving it and then turn it off and try to start it again and you just hear a click. Sounds like its the starter.

If your having to jump it. I would check the starter and also check your battery connections. Sound like your terminals might be loose.

Alright back from the dead! i have now moved from the east coast and now that its winter time its time to do wome work...

First im taking my old bumper off since its F*****. I'm trying to strip the bumper since it has like 50000 coats of paint on it... I am using SEM its working as well but this green paint is on there pretty good...

Any ideas for removal? let me know

This is after three coats of the SEM

Also i have this problem with this bracket it goes all the way across does anyone have this piece or a part number for it?

Here it is all the way across the front end...

These are the small items on my to-do list. The fluids need to be changed I will install my Taurus Cup-holder but im not sure if it will clear the shifter location if not i will just get a short shift kit. anyone know? The motor is strong and I have a 7-rib blue top that i will rebuild over the next few months. Just a freshen up/tiny bump in performance. The goal is just a super clean car that I can blast down a few back roads on... its my daily except in inclement weather. Besides I cant have my buddy Vic with a super clean car and I not have one!

I took the aftermarket bumper off and my turn signals dont work anymore. I'm getting 12V at the ends the fuse is not blown. Idk what the issue is. my flashers work, but when i try to turn on my blinkers theres nothing in the dash and the rears dont go blink either.

that is the top radiator support, I'm not sure if you can get that new from the dealer anymore (hey it's worth a shot) you can always cut one from the junkyard.

I'm having trouble understanding your question about the lights... what do you mean

"my flashers work, but when i try to turn on my blinkers there's nothing..."

Edit*** My hazards work, but my turn signals dont. Hopefully I have something in the works for the radiator support.

Put my Taurus cup holder in and im not sure if i should put in on the top or bottom. Any suggestions? It will probably not clear 1,3, or 5. Ill try the bottom for now. I couldn't get the holes to line back up, so maybe it will do so on top...

I'm rocking the Taurus cup holder... put mine on top because it doesn't function very well on the bottom.

Do you have the little flip down part that supports the bottom of the "cups"?

Hey Rue, yea i have the bottom supports... did you get the holes to line back up? I tried both ways and can't seem to push it back far enough. I cut everything I was supposed to... Now I'm thinking about modifying it a lit because I don't want to drill extra holes...


Cesar, they are from early 90's Ford Taurus. The last Gen of the boxy style.

Bad news... I was driving home from work and i heard a nice loud pop. I pull into my garage and checked it out... Ran in to this


I guess I have to take it to a shop to have this re-welded. Didnt take the piece off of the bottom of the coilover. So im just gonna get new rear end suspension. More updates to come!

depends if you have a welder....

grind, drill and weld a bolt on there...

if you dont have a welder do the same thing...

grind it down, drill the hole out, get a bolt, throw some washers on and tighten with a nut...
