i don't think he mentioned anything about branches, freeflow or cone filter.
I could be wrong but from what i heard was that everything else is still stock.The chipping/remapping that he does himself and gave very strict instructions never to dyno it else its gonna mess up.
Maybe those power claims include a branch/zorst and cone filter.
But my motor is absolutly stock. even the branch and zorst,and got std filter. I cant recall him touching these parts.

I'm still in the dark here. Also on 94 models what was the compression?

@ Batman:
For a super hero your knowledge regarding modifying anything is rather limted.... :lol:

Bro if you are going to spend R6000 for quite simply what is a full race spec cylinderhead why on God's green earth are you going to keep the branch and exhaust standard? Your motor will be breathing about 300% better and hence the exhaust side of things needs to be upgraded rather substantially! :idea:

I swear by a 38mm branch and a 50mm freeflow performance exhaust system on an AFE... Mr Repsold recommends a 44mm branch with a 57mm exhaust... once again this only really works with a high compression motor, ie: 20v
Each unto their own I guess :arrow: :wink:

I not revert to the famous South Park Chewbakkah defense: "This just doesn't make sense..." :lol: :lol: :lol:

@ TwincamSTi:
Bro your AFE is putting out some nice power!

70kw at the wheels up on the Reef is about 82-84kw on the wheels down here at the coast! your torque figure down here would be about 148Nm on the wheels... Thats some solid power their brother!

If you have a free second please try and find out about the branch and the exhaust*

I have a Viper Branch and it is a beautiful piece of kit!

Not to go off the point of afe's, but is there a conversion that Dave can do to a 4age 16v as well?

IF I WASNT GETTING BUCKLED IN NOVEMBER, I WOULD HAVE DONE THE REPSOLD CONVERSION BOUT 2 MONTHS AGO!! ANYWAY LIFES LIKE THAT, JUST GOT TO WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR!!!

TWINCAMSTI - ANY IDEA WAS MAKE AND SPEC CAMS DAVES USED!!

JUST CURIOUS!! THINKING BOUT DOING THE CAMS FIRST AND THE REST OF THE CONVERSION WHEN I GOTS SUM TOTAL!!$$$$$

IF I DO THE CAMS NOW AND THE REST LATER!! WHAT WILL THE CAMS COST ME FROM REPSOLD?? REMEMBER MASTERCAMS WANT R1700 A PAIR!! THEY DO A 258 OR 268 OR 276 PAIR KIT!

ANY IDEA WHAT ARE THE POWER GAINS BY JUST ADDING CAMS!! 5-7KW???

CANT WAIT TO DO MY HEAD CONVERSION!!

All 4AFE'S came out with a 9.5:1 Compression Ratio...Even the 4AF'S...maybe Import 4AFE motors Compression Ratio's differed...must look into that one on the International Toyota Forums...... :roll:
As you will also note that this is arather low Compression Ratio....The Citi Golf Life has a Compression Ratio of 10.5:1....Go figure....... :lol: :lol:

Hi there sportsfans,

Just to let you know that Dave is putting the price of the conversion up by the 1st of July, +- R8200.00. So for R6000.00 I think it's gonna be a bargain.

My 2c worth,

Howzit guys,

I have personally heard good and bad about this conversion but in all seems to be a very good route from the positive views. I have seen and run against Twincam Sti's 4AFE (when his bro had it) and this car runs well. Personally if I still had my 4AF I would do the conversion :wink:

This is all interesting. To get that much power of of those engines is really cool. My question is does he do these conversions on a 4age engine. If so has anyone had it done. Where could i do such a conversion besides SAC's or Rob green?

From ur Signature I see that you have the TC16. Seeing the mods the guys are doing you could do the ffg:

- CAMS, gasflow
- Vernier Cam Gears
- ITB's of a 20V :D
- Chip

Put up a post and you should get some input and specs from the PE guys, 88RSi, etc :wink:

Pravesh, Wrong car. 160i GLE corolla with 17" Momo's on. I can't really say I'm very happy. It runs a bit better, in that I mean it rev's more. I don't really feel this power you guys are talking about. Dave's son says it's one the fastest they have built.
I need to put higher cc/flowing injectors in and then check !

Maybe it's just me..........?
