helo everybody.
I took a long time to put my engine in the bay because I hadn't a lot of time.
That's no done and the engine started this evening.
first rpm : https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10 ... 0474689958

I have now to install an electric fan, plug the coolant circuit on the heater system and fit a new clutch cylinder.

After I will have to concentrate the work on the body and the suspensions.

Hello everybody,

My car is now "roadable".
I have painted satin gray myself after long hours to prepare the car. Without cabin but the result is good. Has you can see the stickers are "Mitsubishi Zero" styled. I putted it for fun and now will probably keep it.

I have alot of work to finish it (fender flares, deep dish wheels, front spoiler...)

I have fitted AE86 D2 Coilovers .... was a big job (on the front 3 holes on the top are not the same, and on the rear, completely different). I couldn't fit the original D2 rear springs on the coilovers because the top dôme was too small. So I have fitted the shock absorber only and AE86 -50mm springs (yes, the AE86's front springs fit "bolt on on the rear of the TA40).

The engine run fine but Mikuni 40 carbs are to small for my setting, I have good torque on low and mid range but the engine "turn off" after 6000rpm. I will fit Weber 45 with 38 venturi.
So I will come back to you as soon as I have some pictures or vids to post.

I have also bought Dellorto 45 DHLA to replace the 40 Mikuni Solex (I'm selling them) and have now to tune it but it seems the engine revs now good to 8000rpm. I just have to tune low and mid range.
