Hi All ^_^

I'm Matt. Joined the forum as it's worthwhile getting some more info and advice with using an AP1 F20C in my AE86.
It was (in theory) a Low mileage (68k) engine but with a checkered past in another drift car and with it being sat in a Scottish garage for a number of years, I felt best to refresh it.

- Bearings (ACL)
- Main Studs and Rod Bolts (ARP)
- Spoon or OEM Head gasket
- New Gaskets top to Bottom
- Baffled Sump (Both for steering rack clearance and to prevent oil slosh)
- Replacing a few broken sensors due to shipping
- Titanium valve retainers (Skunk2)
- Valve Stem Oil Seals
- Air Pump Delete (JSP)
- TCT Replacement (Billman)
- Competition Clutch Stage 3

The Car is a 1985 Toyota Corolla Levin, Japanese Import (we got the Levin in the UK but never as a 2 door/Coupe). I bought it with a few mods and a 20V 4AGE for fairly cheap (needed some work, a lot less than it ended up needing), before the AE86 market boom.
For info, a Jap Import AE86 back then was around £6-7k. Now we are seeing them start around £9k but usually £12/13k.

Some pics of the car when I first got it:

After some new wheels (old ones were buckled AS)

Unfortunate 20v failure - No 1....

After replacing that engine, I got another 6 months out of an unopened one before it rattled as well. So I thought I'd cut my losses and swap something good in. 240bhp, 9k revs and a 6 Speed Box sounded good to me.

There's more up to date photos on my Instagram (@fecklessae86) for anyone interested

That's a brief introduction to me and my car!
