    Project Pimp Levin

    Thought some of you guys might like to see what's been cooking in the new garage, Its an 84 Levin I Imported for a customer on this board, was already a pretty nice car but he wanted more :-)
    This is what it looked like after I drove it 1400kms back from vancouver to lethbridge

    Engine Bay

    Another Engine Bay shot


    The Car was pretty much fully decked out already with almost every area of the car being upgraded or enhanced in some way (4 point cage, Trd 8ways out back, trd springs front and rear, NRCA's, Camber plates, traction brackets) Project MU pads, SSR starsharks, Vertex body kit, Recaro seat, Momo Wheel, razo Knob, LSD, Strut tower bar, Toda Flywheel and clutch kit, Individual throttle setup etc etc)

    Heres the engine, sub frame susp, and other stuff stripped out


    Engine & sub frame dropped


    Engine bay completely stripped


    T3 ITB Stacks


    CNC milled Distributor and rear thermostat block off plates


    Engine bay and hood primed, they were painted gloss black too but i can't find the pics



    Engine almost ready to go back in


    More to come as the project progresses, should be very quickly from now on

    I just import the whole car, as for Levin front end's i'm currently investigating the availability of brand new levin front ends from the dealer.

    As for who the car belongs to I'll let him come forward if he wants to.

    BTW yes I can import ae86 Levin's or Trueno's for people but you better have a pretty large budget if you want something decent.

    Wow! Steve sure knows how to go full out! Wicked! After seeing the first pic, I didn't think it could get any better... until you had to go and clean up everything and drop in a 20V! lol.

    Yep its currently my daily driver till gas prices drop down far enough to justify driving my truck again LOL in case you're wondering everything is for sale for the right price, the GTZ would be in the neighborhood of about $6500 (has a new clutch and axle seals)
