We need to install our rebuilt alternator, install our water pump pulley (after deleting the mechanical fan), install our new (appropriately sized) throttl...

Happy 4th y'all! We seem to have assembled all the necessary components to convert the little 2tc to EFI. BUT WILL THE ENGINE RUN?!?!? HOW WILL IT SOUND!?!?!?

Re: 78 Toyota KAI-Rolla TE51 Liftback Deluxe

In the second episode, we focus on fitting the exhaust header, mounting the O2 sensor for the EFI and deleting the smog pump.
Feel free to comment and we’d love to hear your thoughts on the project.

Short term plan is to keep it as stock as possible but modernize it to be a reliable daily driver: Holley Sniper EFI kit, electric f...

Re: Greetings! and exaust question

Hi, have you try contacting Randy from BRD Racing? My buddy and I are in the process of restoring a TE51 Liftback and he hooked us up with a nicely milled 3TC intake and a Holley EFI adaptor plate. He knows his stuff.
