    So I recently picked up a 93 tercel dx. I paid 650 for it and thought I got a steal because I'm from up north and this thing has absolutely zero rust. About a week after buying it I hear a terrible scraping and can feel something binding. I got it back to my shop and although I didnt remove the...

    I know there are several older engine swap options for tercels and I've seen the threads about them. My question is would anything newer fit under the hood? I know you can get new corollas in a 6 speed manual, could that engine and transmission fit? I've got a 91 Tercel that I just rebuilt the...

    I have an odd question about center consol options for a 91 Tercel that wasn't optioned with one. Do you think it would be possible to make a Del Sol center consol fit in a 1991 tercel? The only reason I want to put a Honda part in my toyota is because my tercel didn't come optioned with a...

    What’s up y’all. Newbie to the Tercel game here. I recently picked up a 1994 Tercel l30 coupe, and have decided I want to modify the car. I’m originally a Honda guy and don’t know shit about these cars. All I know is I can fit a Starlet GT 5efte or 4e whichever it is into it. I’d like to know...

    Hello everyone, I have an unusual question to ask. I am wondering if it is at all possible to add any sort of negative camber to the rear of a '98 Tercel, and if so, how to do it. I am wanting to do a "stance" look on the car (could very possibly be a dumb idea) and I am not sure how to go about...

    Me and a buddy co own a 1989 Tercel hatchback with the greatest spray-paint paint job in the world (to me at least). The previous owner happened to drive it without oil on many occasions so the engine is completely thrashed. Me and my buddy are hoping to swap a new engine into it and make it...

    I have a sick 1989 tercel hatchback with a engine that is completely blown. I was wondering what the best engine/ transmission swap options would be. I was hoping to get something quicker and more modern than stock but also something that is still not unreasonable for price and difficulty to...

  11. Tercel, Paseo, Starlet, and Sera Forum
    I am thinking of doing a 4efte swap into my 1998 Tercel, which had been said to be a direct bolt-on. I am wondering exactly what is needed to make the swap possible. This is my first time attempting a swap so I am unsure what I need specifically, and if anyone that has attempted this can give a...

    I'm doing a 3ee to 5efe swap on my 92 tercel, the motor/trans combo came from a 97 tercel. I thought it would be a simple swap everything is bolted up and ready to go but I have no idea about 5efe engine harness into the stock 3ee chassis harness fusebox and the engine harness going into the...

    My friend has an 85 tercel and really wants power and I cannot find an 85 performance cam but I can find 89-91 cams available. So can I put an 89-91 performance cam in the 1985 3a 60ish horsepower engine

    Friend overtightened the nut and snapped off the thread. I have a torque wrench now so that won't happen again but unable to find this part anywhere online. I think it's called the valve cover stud? Photo:

    I have a '96 Tercel L50 coupe with a stock 5efe, and I dont know much about these engines, and I was wondering what some good ways to go about turbo charging it. Like what I should use to tune it for the turbo or any top end or bottom end changes that would work, and where to find them. Thank you
