WTB. Jap-Spec Sprinter Sun, 17 October 2004 04:27 Go to next message
How hard is it to find a jap-spec sprinter?

I only know the 2 differences between aus and jap spec sprinters. Are there any major things you should look out for when buying a aus/jap spec sprinter?

aus spec have drumb breaks
jap spec have disc breaks
Any thing else ? that i dont know hehe, i bet theres lots Neutral

willing to pay 3000$ for one, stock, but good condition

Thanks.

the engine???? jap spec have the 4ag, dohc, 1.6 making sometihng like 86kw. the aus spec have a shitty 4ac enigne sohc, i dunno what i makes, but its fuck all. also lsd - alot of jap sepc sprinters have lsd, aus spec dont.
there are heaps more but i can be fucked listing them all, check out www.4age.net

and you wont get one for 3000. more like 8 for a jap spec.

how? because that would be the exact car i was thinking about buying, but i decided 8k for a 20 year old car wasnt worth it, for what i wanted. i would love a levin, but not for how much they cost.

Would it be worth it to get a sprinter, and put a 4AGZE in it, LSD and change the breaks to disk breaks or would that cost as much as a jap spec?

Thanks

OBviously you are a newbie. Everyone wants a fully sick 4agze sprinter!..

well here is the run down.

1. Stock sprinter, Some rust, fairly good condition, bout $3000 if u r lucky.
2. ae92 4agze front cut, abou $2k.
3. Parts + incidentals for installation (1k)OR getting someone to install it for you between 2 - 5k.
4. LSD disc brake rear end, 1.5k to 2k.
5. Front jdm disc brakes, or after market brakes 500.
6. Suspension mods, 750-2k.

for about 7k, you may be able to find an engineered 4agze sprinter, nothing else.

HAHA I love this...

Okay takumi, before you rip up mt akina with your hachi roku, you'll need over 10 grand for a really nice jdm ae86. 8 grand could probably get you one but it wont be all that good.
Unless you really wanna be like takumi or your obsessed with 86's, it would be silly to be paying upwards of 10 grand for one... a turbo silvia, 180sx or something would be a better bet for jsut about everything you could want.

if you decide to fork out for a nice jdm 86, congrats, but you'll be needing 3.5 times the cash your willing to pay. You could always buy a nice little aus spec and get blown away at traffic lights, roundabouts, corners, hill climbs etc by excels and charades.

You will need about 6-10 grand for a nice aus spec sprinter with 4age and basic suspension alone. And dont be surprised if that charade still takes ya on roundabouts and traffic lights

peace

gtr_gaga who said anything about initial d?

i seriously don't see what does it matter if an ae86 fan found out about the car thru the cartoon or any other method

i bet 50% of ae86 owners didn't care much for the 86 before initial d came out...

i know i didn't... now im a hardcore ae86 fanatic...

same with me Very Happy

when i first saw initial d i was like "why did they make a cartoon about a old banger?" but now i love them Laughing

good luck finding a car dude, try and find an aus spec with at least a 4age conversion already. you should be able to find one with at least that for under $5k (then again, that would depend on which state you are in Razz )
