    Well let me first by introducing myself, my name is Santos from good ol SOCAL.
    my father and I have been racing all our lives and him longer then me of course.
    I grew up with all the old school datsun and toyotas. We raced at terminal island back int he days with the 73 corolla with a built 3tc and after over 10 years of running at the track we finally went into the 9's in the 1/4 mile with our 3tc set up.
    we parted the car and sold it after years of dialing in.
    we got a new platform to build on a 1983 Toyota Corolla, stock comes with a 4 link but everything else is plain jane lame. So we took the drive after 20+ years on a motor to try a new motor the Tacoma 2RZ!!!!
    I personally did over 50% of the fabrication on this project and hope to push my dad into the 8 second barrier with a almost complete street chassis car.
    we picked up the car Feb2009 and here is our progress till today

    Specs:
    1983 Toyota Corolla
    4 port 2RZ
    Arias Pistons
    Pauter Rods
    springs/retainers
    Stainless Steel valves
    Turbonetic T76 Super thumber T4
    Gato intake manifold
    Mustang 85mm TB
    Arp Head studs
    quarter Master 7.25 twin disc
    Custom under hood fuel cell
    Aeromotive A1000 fuel pump
    -10 fuel lines
    modified AE86 radiator
    sutom motor mounts
    full cage
    subfame connectors
    ford 9" rear end
    strange 4.11 3rd member
    QA1 rear coil overs
    Ksport front coilovers with AE86 struts
    Haltech platium 2000 standalone ECU
    G-force 2000 sequential 5speed trans
    Champion wheels
    26x8.5 M&H slicks
