The AE86 has been a pretty big paper weight for the past couple months and it’s finally time to give it a new heart! James has been doing a ton of research while Zach has been assembling the engine to what will hopefully be a “smooth” engine swap.

Now we’d really like to thank everyone who has helped at pretty much every stage of this Swap!

Note: The guys over at Panic (Mark and Matt) helped us remote tune the 86 and now it feels better than ever!

Money pit is such a great addition to Donut, Zach is great at going over 'basic' stuff that DIY guys might have a hard time coming by. He goes in depth just enough on pretty much everything, so it stays interesting and people learn from it. If I was still starting out I would be devouring these videos.

Oh man I truly thank you guys for bringing back some fond memories. In the 80s I was a busy farm/small town boy of 16, working hard in the oil patch and building up my old truck when I had the time. I remember my dad said something funny to me after I installed a fully detailed 427 we'd rebuilt into my 64 Chevy C10 stepside pickup truck, " Georgie my boy, sorta looks like a pig wearin spurs." because I did the same thing in shining up the 427 and installing it without even cleaning the engine bay of all the grease and grime that a well used farm truck collects. Shucks I didn't even install a new front seal on the tranny, just bolted & connected her all up and went drove her, proud as can be & what a hotrod that truck was! Like I said I was young and being busy making money in the '80s was damn near a miracle because we were in a bad oil recession and work of any kind was very scarce. So I worked hard, a few bosses said I worked like 2 men! We weren't poor but we weren't wealthy dad knew things were tanking in the patch cause of low oil prices so we were a saving kind of family and it paid off. But I never got a vehicle to drive to school in like the better off families so I got real good at wrenching and welding and made good cash while still in school. My dad let me use his truck till I got mine running and I became a mobile welder and mechanic, big need for that out in the country I soon learned! Cash was scarce and I knew the value of a good trade so I had no problem trading my services for other vehicles. Back in the '80s some of my best trades were for a sweet running, driving '59 Impala coupe with a 283, Powerglide, power window car for a transmission re & re and a rear end swap on a Ford Galaxy 500 got me a 64 Impala SS 327, 4 speed car that only needed a clutch, I love my Chevys! Sorry for babbling on. I just want to say thanks for all the good content & and you fellows are never rude or lude and that too is truly appreciated. This is stuff anyone can watch and even I at 57 enjoy you fellows and catch in on some good things/ideas too.

@Donut Media, idk if you guys read every single comment but, you guys are legit awesome, i get a lot of anxiety sometimes so i try to distract myself and you guys just come out with so many videos and they're all so great i watch them all. Thank you for dropping content so often and having so many categories. I really hope James and Nolan do another series together but instead of the awesome 350z videos you guys should do the Tacoma idea, same template as the 350z, one expensive and one cheap. Love you guys

Why would you do all that months research and work without painting the bay that would have too less than a day? Now every time you see the engine you can think about how you didn’t paint the bay. 😅

Next video ideas: 1. Tuning basics using a lap top and an ECU WITHOUT a dyno. You got that new LYNK unit to play with.... 2. Cooling basics / fill / monitoring / improving for higher HP applications. Water vs glycol vs wetter, etc. How to measure, and improve. 3. Maintenance intervals. What changes are recommended to be considered when you up the HP of your engine or do a swap? How to keep it alive...
