    Big T's Junkyard Dog Piston rx4

    Little while back I took the running gear out of this and built a 1300 wagon for the running gear to go into. This is now going to be a budget built turbo LS build. Try and reuse as much stuff as possible. Running gear will be cammed LS1, china turbo, transbraked TH400, hilux diff. We've bought most the parts in the last 6 months, so there shouldn't be much wasted time waiting for parts.

    I seem to have an unhealthy love for the RX4, I guess this should really be a 929 coupe now?
    I suppose a turbo LS is a step up from the usual Ford V8 these things ended up with.

          I had a lux diff built for one of my RX4s. Can probably dig up the contact for the R31 caliper to Hilux with EL disks adaptors.

          Some may say this is rotor sacrilege but I say fucking awesome!

              My first car was a 929 coupe. Still love them.

                  I almost bought that from mazfix many years ago. I think the previous owner worked at the mines

                    Different car. That mazfix one is almost identical colour. Troy has owned this for 15 years when he originally bought it of his uncle.

                        This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

                          This makes me happier than anything. Can you please post it all over the ausrotor facebook pages and the like so I can laugh at all the habibs who fire up.
