Do Not Sell My Personal Information


My 1997 Corolla Project :d


Recommended Posts


just want to know what people think about my project, only just started it so not much done, but plans are coming together

please give me your opinions or advice :D

i am removing the 1.3 engine and installing a supercharged 1.6, the engine already has the uprated pulleys to increase the boost up to maximum 1bar (14 psi)

i have 17" wolfrace pro alloys that i am getting blasted and powdercoated white,

obv have thebody kit

NEED TO FIND A FRONT MOUNT INTERCOOLER FOR THE NEW ENGINE ANY SUGGESTIONS?

uprating the shocks all round and NEED TO FIND UPRATED SPRINGS FOR ALL ROUND THAT WILL NOT LOWER THE CAR AS IT WILL ALREADY BE VERY LOW.

i am smoothing the boot and extending the bonnet (bad boy bonnet :))

going for either a magnaflow exhaust system or powerflow

need to upgrade the brakes all round

getting the arches rolled for extra space for the wheels lol

not my cup of tea but all the best with it!

engine sounds like it could be fun. you'l have to keep the thread updated with progress pics etc.

fair doo's mate, but thanks, yh i will keep it updated, the engine is kicking out just over 200bhp i think which is quite good, also quite random... how do i get my pictures on the posts to appear straight away without having to click download?

easiest way is to upload pics to photobucket so you can link to them from any forum or social networking site...

then all you need is image tags and hte link.

200bhp does sounds fun! well i know 200(ish) bhp is fun. lol

thats the thing mate there not that many 4agze out there, thats why i went for the 3sgte as there is loads out there (and i was on a budget)what sort of money you looking to spend? are you looking to do the work your self? have you looked on fensport web site for conversions

It's not easy to get that out of a 4A-GZE. I've added Fensport pulley, Aquamist water injection, port matched cylinder head and a professionally mapped Motec standalone emgine management (the list goes on) - it's still only 198bhp To get any more you will need cams and a gas flowed head.

Good luck finding one.

If you're looking for suspension take a look at my advert here

i was looking at a 3sgte but quite a lot of work to be done isnt there? gotta change the chassis legs and all the mounts dont you?

not too sure how much i wanna spend rele, depends what i find, probs around 1500/2000, yh i wanna do the work myself, had a look on fensport and thats where i got the idea for the 4agze, as especially as it will be quite different coz there arent many about

Why not see what sort of power you can get going N/A?

In the future I will be going nuts on the 4A-GE without forced induction. It'll be wild. :lol:

at the moment i am looking at a N/A engine but there's just something about turbo's and superchargers that really gets me going lmao :) just hearing the turbo scream and the dump valve letting off haha

i may have to go N/A for now but will deffinatley want to go turbo soon,

what does everyone think of the 4age block with tvis big port head?

It's just that going for forced induction seriously cripples the reliability of many engine that weren't originally designed for it, and it could prove to be a lost cause unless you have the time to do it yourself if it goes wrong.

Also, I think of it as more of a challenge when going N/A! :yes::naughty:

You should find it easy enough to get your hands on the TVIS head and block, and worst comes to it, you can enlarge the ports yourself. :) Luckily, I started wit the Early Spec GTi so don't have that problem! :P: :lol:

Hi Lee,

The fronts are height adjustable, the rears are fixed but with -30mm lowering springs.

I'll PM you my number now.

yeah you have to make mounts bud, you can run std shocks with celica springs if you want, yeah a little more work than a 4agze but more power from std

nah not on about the shocks m8, on about the main chassis legs/bars that run up to the front, coz the fwd 3sgte engine is wider than the standard 4agze or 4efe, how much work is it? is it worth the hassle?

yeah well worth that bit more work, you dont have to do any thing to the chassis, you will have to fabricate the engine mounts and you would have to do some rewiring to the loom as well but you would have to with any other conversion
