Spring (?) update

It's been awhile since my last update. Despite being crazy busy with work/life, I haven't stopped chipping away, just nothing exciting to show. The R180 diff and Acura Integra wiper motor is installed and all electrical is complete right up to the firewall. Pretty much all of my time is in the engin...

Re: 15" Riken Mesh wheels for sale

Hey Keith,

What's the width?

Turns out there's pretty much zero 14" options for R compounds so I've got grab a set of 15...

Diff is SOLD. For the asking price, I split shipping to Western Canada.

It was sad to see it go. Congrats to the new owner.

Mods please close.

Re: FS: 80s Subaru 3.7 R160 Clutch LSD

In my opinion, unless you have some really good torque and HP, 3:7 is really TALL, so any real acceleration is a no go. And/or, you just want a low RPM range for highway cruising. Both in my case. The KA has lots of low-down Tq IMO making 1st somewhat meaningless (195/60R14 tires) - and I hate havi...

Re: FS: 80s Subaru 3.7 R160 Clutch LSD

... What's not so productive about Toylets comments? He does say the STI R180 is insant lock which is good to know. Then he goes on to say for $200 $300 it's a bargan then finishes off with Locked everytime no problem. Seem like productive comments to me yes, no? "While these comments are not exact...

Re: FS: 80s Subaru 3.7 R160 Clutch LSD

The Sti R180 has Torsen which has instant lock compared to clutch type. For $200 to $300 it's a bargain. I used to leave some pretty gnarly rubber marks with my 2013 Sti diff in my 510. Locked every time no problem. While these comments are not exactly productive to the objective of this thread, in...

Re: FS: 80s Subaru 3.7 R160 Clutch LSD

FYI Subie R180s go for the price your asking. The R160 goes for a lot less now days. Good luck with the sale. If you shop around you'll find a Subie STI R180s for that price but the 27 spline axle stub conversion is another ~ $500+ Cdn. I know b/c that's the route I'm taking for the larger 3.5 gear...

SOLD - 80s Subaru 3.7 R160 Clutch LSD

Selling my R160 CLSD. Asking $800 on Kijiji, $750 plus shipping for the good folks on the Realm. Can deliver within the GTA/Ottawa corridor for no charge. Not sure what it's worth but appears to be getting rare... I seem to recall paying my asking price ~5 years ago and that doesn't include the hund...

Steady progress

As I take on more involved 510 projects I can't help but appreciate how much patience I've gained over the years. Rather than charging through the project as quickly as possible, I'm taking the time to address things as I work through each step. Case in point is the wiring to the back seat. I've alw...

I'd absolutely love to participate in a 510 tour with you guys.

I'll also plan my trip around being in Vancouver for the AJC.

Change of plans

Did you figure out how the water was getting into the car? Not yet. Either the rubber plugs or condensation between the metal and OEM soundproofing. Will keep an eye on it going forward. A change of plans came up since the last holiday posting. My family has rented a place in Kelowna for the month ...

January update - lots of progress but still slow going.

Despite the intense cold I managed to get lots done on the car over the holidays. I had hoped to make more progress but a couple surprises chewed up my limited time. Starting with the tank, I installed a baffed in-tank 190lph pump from Tanks Inc. I ditched the faulty OEM sender and replaced with a 9...

Rear sump R&P conversion

Should the EFI project proceed well then I'm also hoping to get the MR2 Rack & Pinion swap done this winter. There are (3) challenges to overcome here. Steering_OldandNew.jpg The setup consists of an MK1 (85-89) Toyota MR2 manual rack, 80's Toyota Cressida inner tie rods, '72 510 outer tie rods, and...

Busy winter project coming up

So the 510 is finally on jacks, and there's a boat-load of stuff waiting for me to pickup just across the US border. In an effort to make the car more driveable & competitive for Solo2 (an oxymoron, I know) I have a fairly extensive list. Added work responsibilities and an upcoming 9 month course th...
