My 94 Corolla is in need of a new engine or rebuild. I've only rebuilt Chevy V8s, and decent rebuild kit for the 7A-FE is kind of expensive. I have read about the 4A-GE 20v and it seems fairly awesome. I was wondering what all needs to be done to install it in an AE102. It comes with everything but mounts. It is at this place call "Japan Motor Import"

I know a rebuild would essentially be a new engine, but the cams may be bad and that isn't cheap. It has 195K and no compression in cylinder #1, runs rough and smokes blue really bad. Can you make suggestions for me and maybe tell me of a better JDM supplier if this one is questionable.
Thank You -Josh

any A series engine, such as 4age and 7afe use the same mounts and locations...thus lots of people go with the 20v in corollas and mr2s...=D Just make sure when you buy it it comes with a ECU and maybe the tranny and uncut wire harness. Most jdm engines have only 50k-60k miles...don't get that one that has 195k miles lol.

If I was going to get one right now I'd get the blacktop with a 6 spd!

$2k free shipping!:

to be honest with ya thats just too much money for little performance. I wouldnt spend more than 1300 personally on the corolla to make it faster as far as a complete swap went.


Theres so many other platforms to choose from out there at a reasonable price that you can throw 2k at and get significant hp improvements
