next year, will do a few runs, if stock torque doesnt take it, will have to decide if I stall the torque or go t5 conversion, (which is my preference), but since I like to repeat my self, it is a project. Which I hope to do like most fathers like do, give it to my son when I am done having fun with it!!;):bat::fixed:

A good old buddy of mine came by the other day. He shook his head. He said, oh, you bought another money pit. Quote him. He says, you were doing so well with that manual corrola thing. :p

I winked, got an itch, sorry.

Frame rails this winter and bracing the uni body, just need time and and a place to throw this project together. That means I may have to rent a garage. Mine is no way big enough, and winters are real harsh. So this winter, focus on engine #2. Get all that buttoned up. That I can do in my mini garage.

Ok,that was my update. I will continue to post back on this one. I take my mind off other things.

I forgot how big these projects can get. So I go back to my old days with my 84 gt t top, keep it simple, make a plan, and make it happen. Key word, planning.

I think with the b21 cam, I can still be street legal. Anything over, gotta change rear diff ratio, etc, etc, and not a fun street car. Too aggressive.

I feel I need to say why I am doing this project. #1, my sister.

My gf came up with the name of the car. We are gonna call it the (THE PASKALIZER)

My sister died this march, she was my best friend. And before she died, she said she would like to see me do another project. So I made a promise to mom and dad that I would follow up on that promise, even if she is dead.

Her name was Paskale. My niece on the right.

Paskale will live on this way and we can all have fun.

Dad cant see or drive anymore, but he cant wait to hear it. Anyway, yeah, At least this car will have a cool story, and goes to show, life is hard, but can be fun. ;)

So, what about the PS pulley, do you still need one? Or did one of those two engines have a usable pulley?

Too bad you don't live closer, sheet-metal fab is one of my better skills, and "scraps" of material are nearly free from friends!

If you intend to do any non-stock mods or tuning to this beast, let's talk about the joys of MegaSquirt..
I completely forgot about that. I found on line that if you ac delete, which I am doing, a v6 3.8l pulley will do. 36$ up here, but a junk yard will have tons, now just need to find a ac delete strap/belt, which also seems to be elusive. So I will probably just string it and measure and order fit. Still need smog delete kit as I cant see how I can wrap the strap around the wp pulley enough and risk slippage.

Well, this car is a nightmare, trying to just get ahead, each and every electrical part is going rip. Now, fuel pump died, found lousy wiring in trunk, dude bypassed the inertia switch, no soldering no care what so ever, probably this circuit got restrictive, now, I remember, when I got this POS towed to my work, there were a few blown maxi fuses in the glove box, a oem fuel pump in passenger door receptacle thingy, but really thought nothing of it at the time.

I know for a fact, some ppl should never, ever , ever work on cars. This guy is proof of how horrible things can go when you just slap things together and wish.


If any one here has a otc genesys ford cable adapter, I am up for that.


Ebay has some, but they say no shipping to canada, but site says colorado.

Maybe one of you guys can get that for me, and ship it. It's 10ish $.

I have the actual scanner, but all the obd1 goodies are either lost or destroyed with use.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/325118105330 this one is out of stock, and even if it was, no shipping to canada possible, may have problems here.

I am looking for the red one and the grey ford one.

So, yeah, this is a shout in the dark.

Well, I have not updated this thread in a long while. I wish Could upload a video. Thing sounds real good.

Some of the hard work I put into it is starting to pay off.

My greek gf actually is scared of it. But she scares easy. Safe to say, it get sideways.

every other light is on, except the check engine light.

the car has this kind of sound, since i have not looked into the doner engine, IDK if it has a b or e cam, but it sounds harley ish.


for the impatient ppl, fast forward to 8 minute mark.\
