E11 Convertions

You could always do what I've done with my AE111 and drop a supercharged engine into it from a Japanese market Toyota Levin GT-Z. Still 1600cc but now putting out 198bhp :D :D :D But be warned it will cost a lot of money - you will need very deep pockets. It's not only the engine conversion - you have to do brakes and suspension as well and lots of other things too. Take a look at my website to see what I've done all together. www.ae111sr.co.uk

Hi ive got a 1.3 e11 corolla,

does anyone know of any easy convertions to any of my car, which will upgrade it.

EG brakes or anything else. Thanls

ive herd from a good source (the guy above) that the brake and suspension off of the e10 all fit on the e11.

best off just doing the normal stuff to start off, like exhaust, induction kit.

then do suspention, and if you really want, then start going crazy with money

lol

just depends on how much your willing to throw at your car

im planning on dropping a 1.8 vvtl-i engine in mine next year :)

but ive still done induction kit, and will do exhaust, and suspension :)

easy conversions, well there aren't any. but simple(ish) ones include the 4A-GZE that ae111sr has, 4E-FTE swap from a starlet turbo or glanza, late spec 4A-GE 20V (good 165hp there at least). those are the simple(ish) ines as the engine mounts will take those no problem. Or you could try the daddy of conversion like john905 and myself have done the 3S-GTE. but be warned none of them are straight forward in and out jobbies you have to think carefully about all the ancillaries involved and how they will fit (eg. ECU).

For the price of the engine and fitting it'd be cheaper to just buy a T Sport! :lol:

yer but that would be predictable, and i can do it at uni :P

mwhahahahaha :P

Yes he's still there, still working on Toyotas. Kevin is the guy who did my 4A-GZE conversion and has done lots of other work on my AE111. He's in Droitwich.

Hi guys. I see that this thread is 11 years old...but I own a Corolla E11 Hatchback 1.3 4efe and I’would like to swap engine with a Starlet turbo or to modify mine with a turbo. Could you help me understand what is easier and cheaper to do? Thanks

The Turbo engine from the Starlet is the 4EFTE. If you can find one, let alone for cheap, then this would be the easiest route. You'd need the engine, manifold, gearbox (just in case) and the ECU from the Starlet and throw that in to the Corolla. The 4EFTE - as far as I'm aware - is the turbo version of the standard 4EFE which is the 1.3 engine in our Corolla's. So they should just plop themselves in without too much hassle.

The thing is, 4EFTE's are getting rarer and good ones rarer still. So for performance upgrades you could look at getting the 1.6 engines from the later E11 Corolla's with the VVTi magic, or you could get the 1.8 engine from an equivalent Avensis. These both will be both NA and not Turbo, but once you start moving beyond drop in replacements like the 4EFTE then the costs, complications and difficulty rises dramatically.

Only if we could go back in time you would pick up a mint 4efte for next to nothing. 
the 4efte has a different shape piston it’s domed at the top and then the standers 4efe has a flat piston. It’s got something to do with compression so you might not get the same power leave u would get off the 4efte
