Explosive Acceleration from an Ultimate 7A-G Turbo Churning Out 490ps
Making street driving comfortable, fast and fun!
The world famous AE86 specialist shop Tec Arts was opened 25 years ago in Tokyo’s Edogawa Ward. Since moving to Yashio City in Saitama prefecture 15 years ago, the business has been succeeded from the father of the current man in charge. Focusing mainly on body work in the beginning, the shop has grown to become a fully fledged tuning shop. The shop has also produced a number of original parts for the 4A-G engine. It has now become a well-known Hachiroku specialty shop engaged in a wide variety of tasks from full restore work to custom tuning and bodywork.
The vehicle introduced here is a full tune based on a super rare Black Limited base model of the AE86 Trueno. The bodywork has been given an aggressive looking makeover with an original spoiler and CBY overfenders.
The engine combines a 20A valve head with a 7A-FE block that has the same genealogy as the 4A-G, producing the strongest spec 4A-G modification. Kameari 82φ pistons and a Tec Arts original connecting rod and crank, etc have been installed. Total displacement reaches 1805cc.
The turbo is a GCG Garrett GTX2867R. Although compact in size, when combined with the 7A-G unit it puts out 490ps at 1.5km boost.
The surge tank for the turbo conversion is a one-off Tec Arts original. The intercooler was custom made using a Blitz core. You can see the handiwork of Tec Arts throughout the entire engine.
The muffler which has a beautiful heat gradation is a high performance type BG tail version created by a Tec Arts and Barnacles collaboration. It is a JASMA-certified product with a focus on exhaust efficiency and volume reduction.
The wheels that fit snugly under CBY overfenders are Work Meister CR01 (8.5J-10 front, 8.5J-40 rear). They are wrapped in Direzza ZIII rubber. Brakes are by Endless, 4-pot with original rotors at the rear.
Tail lenses are an aftermarket product. The age of the car becomes an afterthought when fresh parts such as these are used to sharpen up its image.
A striking red and black theme unifies the interior. Additional gauges include a Defi tach, water and oil temp gauges, oil pressure and boost meter. The car remains equipped with an air conditioner for comfortable street driving.
Though this car was originally set up for circuit and drift, it has now undergone a shift to be able to run comfortably as a daily driver. It has also been equipped with interior features that allow flexibility between city driving and spirited running.
