v8 corolla station wagon

I've been considering a v8 swap for my 83 corolla station wagon (a fun little project once I finish my eclipse and miata) I was looking a 318 but their v is much wider than that of a 302, would probably be difficult to shoehorn in. Decided to go with a 302 for sure (partly because its smaller and partly because my dad has alot of experience putting 302's where they don't belong) but I was wondering if anyone had tried this before. I tried a few searches but haven't found anything on the AE chassis with v8's. I bet it would freak some hondas out at the stoplight

The swap the 1971-1977 Celica owners like is the 1989-1994 Lexus 1UZ-FE V8 because it's all aluminum so lighter in weight than American V8's. Also, smoother & much more powerful than 318's & 302's. But it's also a more complicated swap due to electronic fuel injection and so forth.

Exactly the reason I'm not going that way, that and my like I said my dad is big on old v8's. I like carburetors anyways and have been wanting to buy a v8 American muscle car, figured I would just make the wagon the muscle car. I'm starting to wonder if anyone has ever done this swap before, I found a 77 corolla that had a 302 in it but no wagon yet. I'm gonna start searching around pick and pulls and junk yards for a 302 and hopefully find a ford 10in rear end. Need to do some measuring before hand. This is probably gonna take me a year to finish

there is a guy that did it with a 302... and just for the record i'm a loyal toyota guy... so the 1uz-fe would be the engine for me. it would be a lil more complicated to hook up, but it would run more efficient, and more of a sleeper. and if you compare stats hp/torque the 1uz-fe had more power then any other early 90's v8s about the same size. plus with it having EFI a possible twin turbo would make those hondas flee with their fart can between their legs

Well I love imports, not just a toyota guy tho but I really want an old v8. I'm not gonna go with the 1uz-fe because its more work than its worth in my point of view, that and I have next to no experience with that motor. This is kinda a project between me and my dad, he loves old v8's so I'm going with the 302, no questions asked. Thanks for the link to that 302 corolla

SB Chevy will work

An old hot rod buddy of my Dad's came to his 50th birthday party back in 1988 with a 1981 Corolla 2-door sedan powered by a small-block Chevy 383 stroker and a turbo 350 trans. It actually fit quite nicely under the hood and had a/c, headers and the stock rear-end. It did have an electric fan of course. Not sure how he did it but this guy was an old-school late 50's early 60's hot-rodder who never really quit tinkering with cars.

DK links won't show up in here as DK is members only.

With that said... the 1UZFE swap although it is semi-rare, has been done on different Corollas that I have seen. There was a TE72 Corolla recently on youtube with that swap, and there's a few AE86s also on youtube.

Dude, find yourself an Oldsmobile 215 ci V8. Its all alluminum and complete weight is 300lbs. Find one that has the single garret turbo because they are stronger and faster. 1962-63

I explained that its a family project earlier, I want something me AND my dad can work on. I can tell you right now my dad isn't a "backwoods redneck" he just has different views of how to make power. And building the engine I have already really isn't worth it. 4ac's aren't worth the trouble for the most part unless you're really dedicated to it. (not trying to insult the 4ac, its a workhorse)
