When my car is registered... right now, I'm in such a hurry with all my projects that I cant devote time for website development. I'm having the car project, plus i'm getting a new garage soon, so its really taking all of my time.

the 4a-fe has less potential overall because it's only an economic head. the 4age has stronger internals and can have better potential. but, the 4afe is still tunable. slap in a turbo kit w/ not too much boost and some bolt ones like headers, intake, etc and it'l be fine. but if u do the same to a 4age, the 4age will stil dominate.

93-97 (AE101) corollas ahve a wider range of suspension components. some people say u can aslo use AE120 suspension. u can use 93-97 springs as long as u change the struts with it because the AE101 springs are about quarter to half in wider than the AE92. thats how my suspension setup is on my AE92. H&R Springs w/ KYB struts. same goes with the strut bar

as for the engien bolt-ons, you can use 4AFE parts from 93-97 corolla and use it for your 88-92

well I have a 89 sr-5 and i really dont knwo what motor it is

look slike a single cam and it is carbed


isnt that like the poorest motor?

from what i am told they are dogz:confused:

I dont know I got some serious tuning i need to do but I just got the thing to run a 17 flat so I think it has some potential

and belive me i know a 17 is teh suck but this car is wayy off in timing and alot of things are kinda neding fixed so give it about a month and ill have this car in tip top condition and we will see whether i will keep this motor or not


yall gimme some ideas and suggestions

17 flat in a 4af is quite good. Depending on who you talk to the 4af is either the bomb diggity or teh suck.:lol:

17.0 at what speed? i almost have a hard time believing this as the way you talk i would assume the car is stock..... and even with a decent running 4afe, removed rear seat, all stereo out, removed spare tire best my ae92 ran was 17.33 @ 79mph..... and mine is a manual..... the 4afe puts out another ~10hp over the 4af in stock trims.... and the transmissions aren't different..... on top of that, i had about 10 (if not more) runs and all were in the 17.3's...... and these are higher numbers than most sr5 owners have been able to put down

4AF advantage = very light

Throw some big cams in, good exhaust, quad carbs, dyno tuned.. and you'd smoke a mod'd GE any day. Do valve work and more extensive internal work and you'd really be hauling ass. I also speak from expirence :)

the 4AF weighs nothing compared to a GE .. whole engine.

it's about a whole 40-50lb difference in dry weight between both complete motors......
