4agetercel's 4A-GE swap:)

So it has finally come time for the 4A-GE to go in after my misfortune that happened on tuesday, my 3E developing a very loud rod knock, but luckly i made it home from Kitchener, I started some work today taking it apart but im still waiting to hear back from a buddy for this engine lif, so here is where it ends for today

so now that the 3E is pooped it gives me an excuse to throw this engine in sooner than expected, just need to buy some more parts, but for the most part the engine is complete,



The 3E



And the old/new engine for this car, bought the whole setup for 250$ from s1495 about a year ago



Engine is 91 Corolla GTS, the Hi-comp version of the 4A-GE, im looking forward to getting more work done very soon,

Good swap choice. Keep in mind the 91 came with the small port head so a later mod might be a head swap. Won't you have to notch the passenger side frame rail?

Yep i was thinking of going that route if i were to go turbo, i have a bigport bluetop sitting under the bench if i ever do decide to go that way,

Yes i was thinking of cutting the drivers rail but i want to keep the Tercel axles because i heard that custom axles are a bit pricey, so im gunna drill and tap some holes in the C52 and use the Tercel axles and cut the passenger frame rail, id like to get the engine mounted this week, then my buddy whos a Toyota Tech is gunna help me out with the wiring

Actually the axles might fit. The only difference between Tercel axles and regular Corolla axles is length. Dunno about the GTS.

yeah the axles will fit the way i plan to do it, so i wont have to worry about them, im just gunna run N/A for a little while, im gunna get some GZE pistons for it when i rebuild the engine, but for now im just running how it is, im also curious what a stock 4ag in a Tercel would do in a 1/4 mile

Probably pretty similar to a Corolla FX16

So, why does the frame need cutting again? I've forgotten.

The Corolla transmission bolts up to the stock Tercel mounts in most cases however the engine is slightly longer so a little clearance is needed on the passenger side. You wouldn't want to relocate the transmission because that would call for custom axles.
By the way, look at Paseo axles when you stop by a parts store. I've heard they are slightly beefier than Tercel axles but fit in place.

I gotcha. Is it just one spot, or does it have to be cut all the way front to firewall to clear the accessories?

Nope, that's why they call it a notch, just about 6" or so. But it will need to be reinforced.

Nice! no more slow pokin' it on that Tercel.

Let me know if you run into a decent smallport, I might opt to go this way if it ends up being a lot cheaper for me.
