Hi fellas so heres the update on whats happening with the swap so far.
I brought the engine off a guy called Chris who had purchased the engine from another guy who has now fled to Dubai. He named his car MEGs ta22 on youtube and was on another forum called uaeboost.
Turns out that the guy spent abit of cash on the efi engine and had it rebuilt by a NOOB.
Why did i say that you ask?? Well i'll let you have a look
Piston 1 has a head gasket leak and piston 4 the piston was put the wrong way round causing a score and knock taken to it.
Now we are inspecting the crank which i now believe to been upgraded to the 2.0 3t crank which also has a very weird shave on the end of it on the picture u can see it.
Im now having to go through ALOT of pain for this conversion as it wasnt done properly. The block needs to be honed to 89mm from its 88.5 which had pistons from arias made up but had alot of piston slap.
The project now has turnt to a full engine rebuild
Does anybody have any info on the guy who did this???
Here are the specs of what he has done.
Engine: 1.6-litre 8v Toyota 2TG-EU twin cam with OMEX 500 engine management, Ford EDIS 4 ignition, HKS m-h-g, RC Racing 270cc injectors, gear drive, Aria custom forged pistons, Eagle con rods, ARP con rod bolts, 88.5mm rebore and 3TC crank increasing capacity to approx 1.9-litre. Balanced: crank, front pulley, clutch and flywheel. Custom mild steel exhaust, baffled sump, Weber fuel pressure regulator, electric fan
Sound good but its actually really badly done.
