4afe Tuning

37 posts in this topic

Hi there, I`ve got a 98 GLi Corolla 4AFE. I taken out some parts and put in new ones. I`ve got an Airintake and an exhaust system, without headers. I`ve got a really good fuel economy with this stuff, I get 18 KMs per liter on long drive with A/c, in an average speed of 100 - 120 KMs in a mountainous terain :thumbsup: . My cars Cluster is 180 KMs I can easily reach that speed. Now I want more from my car, can I get a turbo for it ? or should I swap engines, and then which one. I dont want to go over 1.6 . so what are your suggestions what should I do :wacko:

4A-FE is the 1600cc engine as originally fitted to my AE111 Corolla. There are supposedly turbo kits available from the USA but no-one on TOC has done one yet. Engine transplants range from the 16v 4a-ge 129BHP, 20v 4a-ge 160bhp, supercharged 4a-gze 165bhp all the way up to the 2 litre 3s-gte around 240bhp from the Celica GT4/ MR2 turbo. All powe figures as quoted by Toyota. It really depends on how much work you want to do and how ddep your pockets are. Alternatively you could always buy a different car that has more power as standard - probably the cheaper option if you are not able to do the work yourself.

I`m going abroad in a few days, I`ll have a look at a few engines and get them.

I need help in installing some gauges, I can`t locate the vacume Pipe on my engine, all other gauges are installed and runing.

HI

i also have a 4afe motor, i have a chip, K & N flat pad filter and a ram tube running to the front bumper from the original air box, for some nice cold air. I also have a stainless steel 57mm exhaust with 41 mm headers and an adjustable fuel pressure regulator. The car is making 78 kw at the wheels. I run with 4AGE 16V

I am in South Africa, and TRD parts are very hard to source. I am looking for a TRD intake manifold as well TRD pistons, TRD camshafts(280 intake and 270 exhaust), TRD valves and high revving valve springs.

I am planning on installing these parts, once i have gas flowed the head if i can source them otherwise i will have to use local parts. Trying to get about 115 kw at the fly wheel. once that is done i want to put in a 1800 bottom end and see how she runs then.

Hi,

I don't believe TRD has anything for the 4A-FE engine I'm afraid. I have been looking for that and not found anything at their webpage.

Sports Oil Filter - 90915-SP000

Hey,

I don't think that an oil filter, spark plug cord set and gearbox oil will make much improvmentrs in the output of an engine. It is things that would fit many engines such as sports thermostat and oilfiller cap or radiator cap they are also universal things from TRD that would fit a 4A-Fe engine.

Yes, I do agree that there are lot of things to do woth a 4A-Fe engine. There are turbokits from USA. Sportsfilter and bigger exhaust. You could try to get higher compression with some work on the head. Re map the engine with a piggyback or a new ECU. The head is said to cope airflow to about 130 hp with out any work needed.

In my very own personal opinion, N/A-tuning the 4AFE block is stupid... A pure waste of money!

However, turbocharging it is the way ahead. Get 160-170hp out of it without breaking anything. It goes from 13km/l to 15km/l, if you're not accelerating like a maniac all the time!

Parts would cost something looking 500-700pounds.

Hey

Ive got a 1995 Toyota Levin with the 4A-FE engine and I'm looking to get some more power out of it. Was looking at putting a hot cam(s) in it how far can the cam go before anything else has to be altered. Also what else can I do to the engine without breaking the budget as I am a student :( . I use the car on at Manfield Auto Course in Fleiding, New Zealand usualy gets upto 160kph on the straight would be nice to get abit more out of it already has cold air intake, lowering springs and after market wheels.

Also can anyone tell me if 4A-GE exhaust headers will fit my 4A-FE. I am having trouble finding 4A-FE headers but 4A-GE ones are very easy to find and I have been told they are the same.

what`s up man well to answer the first Q. You can get a 2 1/2 Exhaust system bigger injectors, fuel pressure regulator, better spark plugs and a Apexi safc and it will help out a good amount. But if you want to turbo would be nice 6 pounds will give you 165 hp and 170 foot pound of TQ. the 2nd would be that you can go to Webcams.com and decide what camshafts you want. and 3rd 4age headers will not work on 4afe go to Ebay they carry a lot of headers for are cars.

Turbo would be going a bit far in my case because of insurance and also in New Zealand you have to get a LVV certerficate is you increase your BHP by 15% or more and turbo comes under that :( but exhaust is something I plan to do soon especially at those prices!. For camshafts how far can ya go before ECU becomes a problem and has to be re maped or replaced?

Also sorry to sound like a noob but whats a "Apexi safc" never herd of that before.
