Sold the Orange 77 so I got the money to finish Cornbeef (I think lol as long as there are no suprises) I'm currently working on my Brown 77 Celica and finishing up moving into my new house. I'm about to start ordering parts for Cornbeef though. I got the Walbro, I need a Clutch (the tranny from you), Ko downpipe, wiregap harness, wheel bearings, (mid pipe??) And some odds and ends. I also hope to have it ready before the Dragon meet.

So where are these specs for the wilwood kit? Do you have drawing of the brackets or did you do it Jig style?

My plan is to measure the offset of the hats and go with a different rotor, as the current bolt pattern is hard to find. The hats were made by precision brakes who are no longer in business, so it makes sense to find a new solution. The calipers have the willwood p/n on them and the brackets are easy enough to duplicate. Once I have the time I'll measure everything and put the info out there..

I misread it. I thought you already did. It. Shame about the rotors and hats. I wonder if the rotor rings are just a wilwood part and the hats are the only true custom part. They could be very well just wilwood blank hats that they machined and stamped.

Re: Project - 205 HALTECH ST165 - Harness and engine install

Postby GT4_DRED » Thu Sep 25, 2014 7:35 pm

Got some additional work done on the car and was able to complete the extending of the main harness. Once the harness was completed I ran and tucked the engine harness to the motor prior to dropping the engine in.

Image

Image


Once the engine was in I then fed the lot through the firewall and into the cabin. All this to avoid running it out the firewall and across the engine bay. Instead it'll run under the dash > out the driver side fender > to the main fuse box in the engine bay. The engine harness from the haltech is mainly all that comes out the firewall now.
Image

Image


From there I installed the fuel pressure regulator and connected the lines (-6 feed / -4 return) and ran the throttle cable behind the manifold and to the TB.
Image


I'll tackle the intercooler, piping, and exhaust next. I'll save the other end of the harness for later, as I only mess with wiring because I have to..

GT4_DRED wrote:Cant believe it's been a year since I've updated this thread, so just posting some updates regarding the car. The goal was to turn this car into the AllTrac I've always wanted, and as you can see that takes time. I had an opportunity to pick up another 165 that was already pretty much what I wanted this car to be, not to mention it was a single owner car with quite a bit of history. With that said, this car has since been passed on to a close friend here on the forum who will continue developing the car; he'll create a build page to consolidate all this. I'm currently working to complete this car, although the build is now a bit more realistic and practical (still 3rd gen).

I've spent the last few months building the motor, head and turbo system as time has allowed. Here's a summary of the progress:

* 3rd gen head was refreshed with new valve seals, Engle springs and held down with ARP head studs
* 3rd gen block was hot tanked, honed, Eagle rods and Arais pistons (86mm) installed with ACL main and rod bearings
* New oil pump, water pump, thermostat, timing belt & tensioner, seals (mains, cams, etc...), all new gaskets (including 3rd gen head gasket)
* Holset HY35 was upgraded from a 54mm comp wheel to a 60mm HX40 wheel (still 9cm turb. hsg)
* Fabbed wastegate adapter to still run oem manifold heatshield

I'm sure there is some other things I'm forgetting, but I'm definately grateful that the car came with a full 3rd gen engine rebuild kit. Just need to put the engine on a cradle and install the flywheel/clutch/tranny and then focus on getting her back in the car. from there it's just re-installing the engine harness (with a slight tuck) and re-tuning the Haltech for E85. Still need to install the fuel rail and injectors (1000cc). Anyway, here are a lot of pics of the progress:

How she currently sits..
Image

Image

Head prepped for re-assembly
Image

Image


Image

I was able to move the shims around (bottom right), in order to keep in the center of the tolerances
Image

Bare block after hot-tank and hone; they actually chased all the bolt holes at no additional cost
Image

Dont you just love squirters :D
Image

Installed
Image

Crank installed and main torqued
Image

Image

Image

Checking ring-gap after filing the rings; gap set to .020
Image

Ready to install the rings and drop them in the bore
Image

Image

It's a shame these will be hidden by the head :(
Image

ARP studs installed
Image

Image

Rod caps torqued down. I'm using Permatex Assembly Lube if anyones wondering (very sticky)
Image


Image

Suction tube and windage tray installedAint she purdy? :D
Image

Upper oil pan installed
Image

Lower oil pan installed
Image

Image

Image

Head back together. I used Redline assembly lube to keep the keepers on the valve stems (worked well)
Image

Cut my finger on the corner of the head and bled all over it.. J/K it the Permatex assembly lube :P
Image

Cams/gears installed and torqued
Image

Running stock 3rd gen cams for now, but we may pick up some additional HP by playing with them on the dyno.
I have a set of new GSC 268s on the shelf just in case
:D
Image

Turbo is a Holset HY35/40 (9cm hsg). I'm very curious how it will spool and perform mid-range and up top
Image

Image

The owner wanted a stock'ish look, so I'm fabbing the wastgate lacation to keep the OE heatshield
Image

Image

Image

Came out pretty good. It'll be open vent..
Image

Image

Gotta fab up the 3" downpipe and w/g dump tube; almost there
Image

Image

Image

A few things left to install

Re-plenum Manifold (Q45 tb)
Image

Competition Clutch Stg-4 kit w/ Flywheel (steel)
Image

T-Netics intercooler (garrett core)
Image

If you're referring to the white car I replaced this with, I don't think so, as I didn't get it with the car. However, he's a local who been a part of the scene since back in the 80's and those of us who have been around that long can remember when he bought the car new from the dealership where he worked.

Yeah, I didnt want to risk it, so I kept the CC light flywheel and went with the ACT 6 puck setup instead, hence the yellow pressure plate.

Found some time over the weekend to fab/tack the intercooler piping together; piping is 2.5" from turbo to throttle body. I still have the midpipe and exhaust to do (waiting on the mid-muffler) and will wrap the downpipe once finished.

Got the midpipe completed and tacked the rest of the exhaust together. I decided to run the pipe under the rear subframe, which is easier and look much better IMHO. Still need to weld on the exhaust hangers, seam the exhaust and intercooler piping all up, and wrap the downpipe. Exhaust is 3" from the turbo back with a Magnaflow silencer and HKS pan.
