yea, my goal is to be able to drive this thing around and have it not be a total pain in the ass to do so. Its perfectly reliable but street ability is not good, it doesnt idle for shit usually, exhaust likes to fall off constantly, windshield leaks, etc. My friend and I are going to tune the part throttle/idle areas of the tune better to make the car more manageable during normal conditions, and i'm going to have my exhaust redone probably over winter as well.

I have still been taking it to friday night meets in town and shit and it's been great, and I've taken it on several hour+ long trips, including that trip to IL without issue. It even gets like 20mpg running pig rich on the highway.

My god this shit is perfect now. If it still had that Running Free banner, I'd easily mistake your car for one of those.

Feels surreal that I'll see this car in person pretty soon.

Thanks man!

the running free banner was cool, but it sucked, wasn't the right size/shape or font. That always bugged me so I took it off.

After the event I removed the plastidip from my ssr's since I'm trying to sell them. Also had a chance to put my quarter window and windshield trim in.

BP and I are going to trade diffs since his fun car is still 4ag and he wants 4.77. Spent today getting my diff out.

And at the track last weekend I noticed I was having a weird oil pressure issue, I had great pressure at idle, even when really hot, but it would not rise/build with rpm, it would sometimes even drop into the high 30s at redline and the stack would give me a low pressure light. Checked out my pan and it's really smashed. Pulled it out today to diagnose and found my pickup was pressed up against the bottom of the pan. Paul with the beams mango from Canada has a spare pan and pickup that he's going to mod/shorten for me so right now the car is going to be down until I can get that from him

Weren't we just talking about that at the event? Should look into a bash plate to at least help a little against this happening again.

Well the rear end is done, that's half the battle. Went relatively smoothly. Went to BP's place and we swapped third members and ring gears, kept our respective center sections. Spent today putting it all back together, starting to get pretty good at working on these live axles.

Living that 86 life... 10628616_10203053653374699_8527904850463730342_n

now I just need to wait for my new oil pan/pickup to get the car back to 100%

Even though I'm going to be driving this thing on the street until it gets too cold, I'm going to go ahead and start my "winter build" stuff right away.

I'm not really going to be doing much over winter. Just a few things.

Paul has been sending me progress pics on my new pan/pickup. It should be done within a day or so.

Living that 86 life... 10714838_362887457201885_1756504078_n

I'm doing a new exhaust, something more tame that fits and sounds better. I'm too old and I like street driving too much to keep this thing as loud as it is, it's a pain in the ass to drive around like this.

Picked up this magna flow oval muffler. Its pretty nice and fits under my rear bumper more or less perfectly.

Living that 86 life... 10687039_10203135942071865_1357365165835281362_n

Going to take this to Skunk Speed Shop in madison, they do cheap exhausts, like valasquez in IL. just going to do 2.5" straight pipe from the header to this muffler at the back. Should be a lot quieter.

I also picked up this FC oil cooler at the junkyard the other day, i'm on the fence about using it, but it was cheap and, if you don't know anything about them, they are awesome. They are absolutely gigantic and thermostatic from the factory. Dudes use them on porsche and corvette race cars all the time.

Fits pretty well, would just need to make some tabs to bolt it in. It's almost the same width as my radiator.

Living that 86 life... 10710817_10203107428039032_6792467976041093139_n

When I ordered my muffler I  went ahead and got some fittings to convert it to -10AN

Living that 86 life... 8E745657-FDC4-4DDA-B79A-1DA4D0ECC1B7_zpsrexfztkf

If I follow through with putting this in I'm just going to do it clean and simple, using the same -AN push lock lines/fittings that I use for my fuel system and pair it with a cheap ebay sandwich plate.

Other winter plans include new wheels, new seats, new harnesses. And that's about it I guess. Maybe some East Bear mirrors if funds allow.

This will be here on thursday.

Living that 86 life... 10707982_365169293640368_1984717086_n_zps5dfd9189

Then it's straight to the exhaust shop. I can't wait to get this thing off jack stands.

I think tomorrow I might try to make a fan shroud out of fiberglass, we will see how that goes..

I always love to read your updates. Excited for the new wheels.

Are stock Beams pans really "tall" or whatever you would call it?

no, they have an upper pan and lower sump like an SR, the lower pan is only like 3" deep or so. The whole engine is tall though. has to sit mega low to be able to close the hood. my pan hung down even further than my exhaust. Paul made the new one about 1" shorter, so that should help.

Out of curiosity,do you have any concerns about less oil in the sump? I'm not sure how that will effect oil availability to the pickup while sliding. Maybe I'm Vlad-ing this topic.

the pickup is shortened just as much as the pan is, so in relation everything stays the same.

Technically if I go by the normal full line on the dipstick, capacity will be slightly less, but this engine already takes 6.5 quarts of oil and it's safe to overfill it closer to 8 quarts and still not even come close to getting high enough to hit the crank.

I'm just going to make a new "full" mark on my dip stick like 1/4" or so higher than the existing one. Should still be about the same capacity as stock.

Pluc the FC cooler holds over a quart alone, so that will be 7+ quarts.

Got this stuff today.

Living that 86 life... F0891289b937d756f14636c12be4355b

Shortened pan and pickup. To bolt the pickup in I had to file a relief into part of the webbing in the upper pan. That was really scary, and took a while, but wasn't all that hard.

Living that 86 life... 6cda79ea41b4fbe9e47346d271b1be98

You can see the big missing chunk. Did that using a tiny $5 file from autozone.

Living that 86 life... 77e926f5693151ec1d8506a8fb2f4cc8

Like a glove.

Sealed up the sump with OEM toyota FIPG and tossed on a new D1 toyota filter.

Living that 86 life... D6d52e4a9a853f0cba1cbb6d51dd570f

Filled it up with some fresh rotella and that's that.

Tomorrow I'm going to visit my bro and pickup my header. He fixed some cracks on it and welded on a 2 bolt flange for my new exhaust.

Living that 86 life... 697aed4c00206b1c4c32ffc9d9d283ed

Not bad for his first time tig welding stainless. After that's back on, it's straight to the exhaust shop.

I want to, maybe not this year because the weather is turning QUICK. could see my breath driving this thing around all day today. Still had a fucking blast because it was raining.

Drove it to the exhaust shop this morning open header. Fuck that was rowdy, car ran like total shit though because the o2 was in open air, so no chance to do anything fun.

[img]Living that 86 life... C44FA8BC-E956-44A4-BCE0-0E3792B4D930_zpst7sp58bh[/img]

Had new 2.5" exhaust bent up. Shits tucked up MAD tight to the car, Needed a ton of bends to make it like that, but I don't give a shit. Its awesome. muffler at the back with some random tip they found on the ground at the place that seemed to fit alright.
