I guess it escalated a little....rebore and a few bits for inside the engine...ran a GT1544 previous on the M13.....went like a scalded cat!

So I've decided that with 500hp rods and 9:1 pistons I need a bigger turbo.....I have a 6 speed Lexus IS 200 gearbox and am considering a Landrover transfer box as it was a little hairy in the wet with the turbo and just RWD

Motor will be sendt tomorrow, and i`ve ordered alot of parts from Partsouq for the swap.. Waterpump, thermostat, crank pulley, tensioner wheel, gaskets etc.

Just left to decide if it`s worth the extra money to buy the Exedy safari tough over the stock exedy.. Over 3 times the price, so i doubt it, but ill get pissed if i have to pull the gearbox again soon haha.

What clutch does the M18a guys use?

Installed Trailmaster steering damper, 2" Trailmaster comfort lift kit and Trailgear brakelines on both axles!
And delivered rims and tires to be mounted, going to get them this afternoon..
A quick detailing job + fit all new bushings in front trail arms tomorrow !






Not sure i like running a steering damper yet though. Feels like im going to hate it in the winter, as it slows down the steering a bit too much8 when i need to be quick.

I have only good things to say about my steering damper. Also for winter driving. I think bump steer and wobbling is a bigger problem than the slower response on the steering which i can not say i have noticed so much.
After you get the caster correction bushings in, the car pretty much straighten itself. The difference with or without them is so big i think it should not be allowed to lift the car without fixing the caster angle.
On the Arctic Jimny they repositioned the inner/aft brackets of the front arms down to fix the caster angle.

Pretty sure my Trailmaster lift kit only had the rear longer brake lines?

Good, i wont write it off just yet then!

Yeah the kit had 2 brake lines included for some reason, and manual only mentioned rear axle..
I bought a full kit of trail gear brake lines due to i want to be able to remove (or make quick link) the front stabilizer bar. The stock lines are too short for that, atleast thats what ive read..

Yes, 235 looks the best IMO.. Gonna run the Rupes bigfoot on it tomorrow, removing some scratches and make it shine :)

I live in Sunndalsøra!
