People call me Gatchiroku, and here's my story, back in 2006 I met a couple of guys that drove an ae86, I didn't even know what an ae86 was. 

I used to drive a 93 Honda prelude SI, I asked my parents for the money to get an ae86, and they let me borrow money using the money they got from income tax. I found a beat-up ae86 hatchback GTS. I started working on it till it was almost brand new, but, I was having a problem with my standalone ECU and I was so stressed out that I sold it in 2011. 

I kinda took a rest from drifting and bought a brand new car because my hatch had so many issues where when it rains it leaks inside and when I go up high altitude my car would bog down. In late 2015 I started to itch again and wanted to go back to an ae86. So I started looking for another project ae86. 2016 was when I got lucky to find a cheap ae86 coupe GTS.

The car was beaten up as well and came with stock 4AGE Bluetop 1.6L. this car had many issues as well as far as there are leaks everywhere. The front and Rear main seal was bad, the water bypass top and bottom O rings are bad and also the Head gasket was blown. I managed to drive the car from Gardena California to Pacoima California by stopping on the side of the freeway and filling up oil and water till I get home. a lot of people were telling me why I didn't call AAA. 

I didn't have at that time the money to call a third-party Tow company. I managed to rebuild the stock 4age engine and got it to work but I'm the type of guy that I couldn't make up my mind, I needed more power so I looked into buying a Toyota engine. I came across 3sge beams blacktop at least it's still a Toyota engine. 

I pulled out the old motor and swapped the 3sge. I bought and installed the engine harness from panic wire to look clean, I also gutted the interior and painted it grey, the car was painted near my old house in LA and it's called Mercedes auto collision. The piping and Exhaust were welded by Js racing_llc. and the rest of the work is done by me.
