I'm thinking I'm gonna keep it basically stock for no and use it as my DD
I got an 1987 thunderbird tc with a gt30 that is my fun car.
I do wanna switch to an lsd rear differential on the all trac though
The guy I bought it from had an aftermarket turbo on the car with no wastegate
but he gave me the factory turbo so I might switch back to that. Right now, just basically doing a tune up, new plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor and fuel filter. Next will be a timing belt and I got to fix the speedometer, it doesn't work.
Do you know of any upgrades for the alternator?

I had an 88 TC; talk about a sleeper! Other than a basic tune-up, my only mods were a $50 Ric Gillis adjustable boost valve and a K+N cone filter. First time I heard the blow-off I thought I broke something. :oops: Schooled a few Cobras in that car; sure was fun.

Sadly this is the only pic I have of it...

Hi guys,

I'm getting the bug to bring my car back to life, so I'll probably be hanging around here more. I won't tell my power goals yet, but it should be pretty sick.

My ST165 and Tacoma are sold, so the only Toyotas left in the stable are the ST185 and my wife's 2008 Sienna Limited AWD. It's pretty quick for a minivan.

Anyway, I sometimes see an ST185 headed down this way toward Roxborough / Lockheed Martin (south of Chatfield) ... I think it's gray. I'm so colorblind. Anyone know the owner?

Figure I should post in here as well. I'm in the far south of Colorado: Alamosa.

Bought my current ST165 to replace my Subaru. This was my old car:

The reason the car was sold was so I could help fund my start-up business! My business is to design and manufacture aftermarket parts for cars. I may consider developing some products for these cars in time...

Yay, another Suby owner is converted! I'm tired of seeing WRXs with fart cans all over the place.

And welcome from Colorado Springs 8)

Thanks for the welcome! The conversion from Subaru isn't 100% accurate. While I've loved the Alltrac long before the Subaru came into the market, the better half and I still plan to keep an Impreza in our garage. After all, variety is the spice to life! :)

Normally not a fan of Subie's, but I do love that body style. Very clean.

Thanks! While I personally don't care for any of the 2002-2010 body styles, this body style is my favorite. These are great cars but any of the USDM turbo models are just too common to see tinkered in a less than tasteful way. Making one of these pre-turbo cars fast took considerable amounts of work and combined with the rare-factor, makes these very cool in my opinion! The blue one above makes 290whp and 350wtq reliably and should make more once we get the stronger tranny and forged internals installed. She really loves her car and I must say, it is a joy to drive! :)

Here's an update...

My new [used] block is at the machine shop now, and the old engine will be coming out soon. Here's what I know I am doing so far...

5S block/crank from a 98 Camry
Stroked to 2.3L
Wiseco custom HD pistons 8.5:1
Pauter rods
3SGTE head (my original head)

This will be an E85 engine, so plenty of changes to fueling will take place. I'll start a new thread to document it all.
