the biggest engine you can fit in a corolla?

i don't know if this question has ever been asked before,so i was thinking you can swap different engine into different cars because there all japanese engines.for examples like dropping in a prelude engine or a vtech engine because vvti doesn't really give you that much push i mean don't get me wrong i've buried the needle in my rolla 115+

Just bescause they are form "Japanese" manufacturers, does not make them compatible in other vehicles.

It takes a lot to do an engine swap. You will likely need to fabricate custom mounting brackets.

And as far as the biggest engine, what ever would fit. W16 anyone?

Its VTEC, not vtech. And as for VVTi not giving enough push, thats because its not sudden. Also a prelude engine is a 2liter. Vtec is overrated.

As for the biggest engine, well... what you can shoehorn in there, I've seen a Civic with a corvette V8 in it

I'm not responsible if you kill yourself.

If you just want to go faster, get the top speed limiter removed by modifying the ECU.

Get a nitrous kit too. No need for a swap.

See if that suits you. If not, then get a 4A-GZE, if that's still not good enough, twincharge it.

If you want to go all out, get the 3S-GTE.

so basically its just another i want more power thread. if u had to ask about such topics it showed u didn't take any initiative to research and expect to be spoonfed. such help won't be offered "if" u do actually do the swap unless u paid someone to do it. with that said, get a better platform

Well obviously hes not skilled enough to do the swap himself, because he wouldnt of asked a question like that if he was....People should stop daydreaming...

If I wanted to put a honda H22A into my car, I wouldnt be asking if it can be done, I'd be in the engine bay with a tape measure

Maybe I'll get an AE101 and put a B18 into it for fun...
