Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Tangcla's Ae112 Corolla Liftback


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This is my first post on the TOC forums - so let's make it good! :) I'm hoping you guys have a lot of information that I might need, as the car comes with the 7A-FE, and I'm looking at either doing a transplant (4A-GE blacktop of 3S-GTE), of turbocharging the 7A-FE.

:o Why is your bonnet laying so high by the windshield on the driversside

The rear of my bonnet is raised with washers for heat dissipation. Cheapest simple performance mod yet ;)

Put your hand near it on a cold day, you can feel the heat... so it must be doing something! B)

Hey, very nice car!

Where did you get the front driver and passenger wind deflectors?

thanks!

They're a genuine Toyota aftermarket option here in Australia - if you are seriously after some, I can get some for you and post them to you, if you're really desperate! :P

nice..like it very much....nice neons...but would red be moore..nice?

I didn't go for red for two reasons:

1) Red is one of the three colours (white, red, blue) that are definitely illegal to use on the roads here in Australia - but I haven't driven with the neons on in a while. In Melbourne, there is a big cop crackdown on modified cars for some reason (giving stupid reasons to defect people - like my friend, who got done for having his license plate too high! :rolleyes: ), so for my own safety I don't drive with them on.

2) I don't really like the colour of the red glow... nor do I like blue for that matter :D

very nice.

where did you get the front bumper from, and how much was it?

ed

Good question!! It looks like a US kit for the 4-Dr sedan. But at a closer inspection, I can tell that it's not!!

Very nice.

:arrgg-matey:

Edit: I think I would supercharge the 7A-FE. With the 7A, you're already at a 1.8 and the black top is a 1.6. The 3S-GTE might be a good swap though.

But the motor mounts are not the same when you gone use the 3S-GTE al the others you can build in very easely ( 1600 cc Engines)

The front bar is by a local bodykit mob called Jetspeed, and it's an imitation of the Trial S15 body kit.

Here's the original kit:

Question in regards to the 7A-FE: how weak exactly is it? Has anyone had any experience with turbo- or supercharging this engine? I'd LuuRve to have the 3S-GTE :drool: , but I know it's going to need a lot of work (ie. new radiator, gearbox, etc etc). Also, I'm probably going to go down the turbo path, so which turbo would be the right size? I was looking at the T25 or the TD04, and the WRX stock top-mount water-air cooler (because I can get it reasonably cheap).

Also, does anyone know about the 7A-GTE hybrid conversion? Apparently it is the 4A-GE bottom end, bolt on with a Porsche timing belt... is it hard to do???

G6-R,

You're right. I hadn't thought about that. What about boring a 4A-GE to a 1.7 or a 1.8? Which is what I'm thinking of doing in the quasi-near future.

tangcla,

Man that S15 is sweet. Anyway, here's something I dug up for you. Actually, it was in one of the Stickies at the top of the Corolla catagory. This should answer some of your questions.

Yeah, seen that before, but thing is, the engine's internals are weak, so if I keep pushing it, it's gonna blow up on me :blink: , and I don't want that :bye:

Better to start with a strong engine to begin with, and do mods there.

Although with the 3S-GE, it will still be an NA car, and I won't get the rush... can't there be an achievable option that will satisfy both?! :crybaby:

3S-GTE is definitely out of the question, due to EPA regulations requiring me to have an engine newer than the manufactured date of my car.

What he said.

If you can't afford another engine right away, have your 7A-FE rebuilt. Just do a Google search for 7A-FE Rebuild kits and see if there's one that'll suit you. But I think G6-R has the best idea. Go for a 20v Silvertop or the Z version.

Silvertop's out of the question... cos it's too old to put in (stupid EPA regulations :censor: ) but the Blacktop isn't.

But the question is, do I want to sacrifice the extra 200cc of power?

The Beams 3S-GE would be a dream to drive... but it would require more work, whereas the 4A-GE would just fit straight in (or so I'm led to believe, right?)

And at the end of the day, it's still NA... there's no turbo rush... :arrgg-matey:

Thats a nice looking motor you got there mate :thumbsup::thumbsup:

If you are thinking about an engine conversion I would go for the 4agze or the blacktop 20v you can get a nice turbo kit for the 20v :lol::lol: and a 6 speed box :thumbsup::thumbsup:

I am not sure if the engine mounts will be the same for the 7afe as the 4a engines might be worth looking into I think I have seen on a website (I will look for the address :wacko: ) that someone made a 7agze I could be wrong I will have a look for you :thumbsup:

The 7A-FE is the same engine as the 4A-FE its only bigger in CC

7a-fe is a 1800 cc engine , the 4a-fe is only 1600cc engine , so the motormounts are the same :bye:

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
