yea ppl!!! Engine going up for sale. time to upgrade the Knight Sports way!! :D :D :D
1986 Series 4 Engine will be returned to stock, with the original top mounted intercooler, but will include my 3" downpipe and HKS fuel cut defender, with a Series 5 turbo, coils and full harness airflow, ECU. looking at $8000.00. Changed oil every 1000km, coolant every 3 months. Apex seals very strong, compression at 100. Come check it starting and driving if you want. LOL

getting up to flywheel, no gearbox.

Nice build man, I am now convinced that not buying a 2nd gen as my first car was a bad decision.. But a lack of info scared me, and no one knew of good mechs etc..
Nice thread, I enjoyed the read..!

Well loads to tell, did my FC3S FINAL EXAM, converting a series 4 car to series 5, EVERYTHING was changed, including door harnesses down to the sender in the gastank!!. as soon as i get some time will lay out the facts stay tuned!!!! :D

Say goodbye the old series 4 he was faithful, ran an entire year in Camden drags without failure, and ppl say rotary not reliable, it is in the correct hands.

MAZTUNE, just a lil headsup, when I was doing research into shocks before I bought my illuminas I discovered that tokico does not recommend dropping the car more than 1.75 inches with these shocks, I read many a dead shocks story with people who drop over 1.75" on illuminas, check it out

ok lets start

Well in the last episode, I mentioned that I had my engine up for sale. A guy liked it more than me and it gone, but I kept my box. Now the hard part, the entire car needed rewiring so I could get my Knight Sports ECU to work with it's knock control system. so started removing the Series 4 chassis harness from the engine bay area first, replacing it with the series 5 right there and then so I would know where every tie strap, and 10mm bolt was going back.
When that was finished, put in the new Series 5 engine and wired the engine side of things.

Image

Pain start to kick in, the lower back area, a wide FC3S does that to you LOL :D

Image

So engine inside, time to remove the dash and remove the rest of Series 4 harness. Also took the opportunity to remove the remainder of A/C that's blower, heater and AC pieces to further reduce weight. It took off 18lbs.

Image
Image

Turned the dash backwards and removed that Series 4 harness as well replacing it with series 5. Also installed that sleek, sexy Knight Sports 260km+ speedo gauge cluster. Then did the door wiring, left first then right. Now here is the thing the cars look similar but they are TOTALLY DIFFERENT!!!.



Lastly, installed the rear harness but encountered a new problem, apparently the Series 5 gas tank is bigger so the Series 5 sender I had was not picking up the correct gauge reading and i sold the Series 5 tank already!!! Guess I fulling up tank and hoping until i get one. :( :(

So the car is now back on the road, exhaust run out, it sounds pretty different, a lot deeper, with 4 ft of flames coming out of the new 3" with much bigger Series 5 porting. Set the boost to 12psi and took it for a spin. WAW..... :shock: now i have to get my rear end in check, so that's the next on the list!

will put up pics a bit later....
