'93 Paseo- need help with swap info


Recommended Posts

I bought a '93 paseo with the hopes that I'd be able to fix it and make it faster, easier said than done. Living in Maryland makes it even more difficult to find parts, and upgrades. I've been getting nothing but laughs when attempting to find anything for my car. Anyway, I found an engine from a Starlet, the shop tells me it's a 1.6L intercooled, turbo. The engine code they gave me was 5E-FE. When I tried to seach around for and upgraded ECU I found out that isn't the right code. Basically, I need to know more about the Starlet engine I'm looking at, and any information about retailers that have parts available for Paseos' and Starlets':)

Starlet Turbo is 4E-FTE and is 1300cc.

Simple conversion as most sensors shared, minor wiring adaption needed and engine mounts are shared.

You'll need a Starlet Turbo engine and ECU as a minimum

if you are serious about swap i would recommend getting a donor car as when the engine is fitted there is a lot of wiring work to be done but it should be worth it as the difference in performance is much more than the 25BHP figure suggests PS. you will also need a full custom exhaust
