^^^^ :notworthy:

Youve sourced a TTE WRC crank for it??

As awesome as that is... im wondering why??
Strength isnt an issue, so the only reason i can think of to use one is weight?
Thats then some big $$s for a small weight saving.

That sounds interesting. I will look more into gearboxes further down the road.

On the straight cut gears have you looked into the set Pat had made for his car by Franavehicles. I bet they will still make it. Here's the link: http://www.franavehicles.com/dogTC.html

Haha, thanks man. I am aware of the Frana set Pat uses, as said it's something I'll look into a bit later.

athousandleaves wrote:Awesome work with the SSS I-shifter and wiring Rene!

Thanks mate. The shifter is still uncharted terrain for ours cars I guess, but without exploring new stuff we'll never know! I found more positive feedback from users in Australia so I'm looking forward to actually testing it.

Long time no see Anhar. I'd happily give you another ride after all work is done, the difference should be noticeable! :smokes:

Thanks Shane, still waiting for your return in a 185 though! :wink:

Engine wise I'm starting from scratch. After working out a sweet deal with Wevers Sport, the difference with a new stocker was small enough for me to go for the TTE crank. It is indeed lighter (not sure how much exactly yet) and is said to be bullet proof, which I like!

Thank you sir.

Thanks warracer, I'm glad you enjoy reading all this stuff!

True story. And so worth it imo, can't beat the character and rally history.

Got some new pics in the post below this one! :D

underscore wrote:Holy crap a TTE WRC crank? What are the benefits of it?

Weight reduction of both rotating mass and wallet, strength.

Picked up my new cylinder head from a UK friend during the Le Mans 24h race last weekend! See post below.

The plan for my project is to build a new engine from scratch, with (new) OEM and upgraded parts. In order to maintain some reliability, the cooling system requires special attention and where reasonably possible, everything will be overengineered. I want the car to be responsive, so a medium size turbo and lightweight moving parts are preferred. Finally, as 3S-GTE engines are known to fail under a lot of boost, I won't be shooting for a new horsepower record. The engine will be controlled by my Autronic SM4 standalone ECU. In order to get a solid base to work from, I went for tough engine internals. A TTE Corolla Grp A WRC crankshaft, Carrillo H-beam connecting rods and CP 86.00 mm pistons:

Image

The cylinder head comes from a new 3rd generation Euro spec crate engine. It has been mounted, but as shown by the paint on the valves has never run. After several years of storage I will disassemble it for a thorough clean and will rebuild it with upgraded parts.

Since I'm going to run a front mounted intercooler, I decided to change to a side feed inlet manifold. This way the 'cold' intercooler pipe can be kept further away from the turbo heat easier. The Toyota Caldina GT-Four came with one as standard and it is a bolt-on upgrade for a gen 3 cylinder head. Not pictured, but included in the purchase were a matching Caldina throttle body and several sensors.
