Depends. If said Corolla is equiped with the 1.6 litre 4a-fe, the black-top will drop right in.
4a-ge 20valve Black Tops did not come in any North American Cars so I would think that they aren't OBD anything...

there is OBD in japan, since Toyota is the first one to create OBDII back in 94. which was demanded by the SAE and california law.

OBDII is not just for Emission problem, it can also detect any electronically controlled motors and sensors.

black top should be able to fit roght into the 93 corolla, but still need lots of modifications.

OK...
Heres what i had to do to fit a Silvertop which is similar in mine (this is from a half-cut). Keeping in mind that this was the same model number (AE101) as my car... yours will be different (AE111 as compared to AE111).

The first problem we came across is that the wiring loom was different, which was no problem - we could just swap them over... another problem arose there, the speedo on the dash was different size and different pin sizes which meant changing it over (and Also doin a fair few mods to the bar that holds it up)

The next problem was the suspension was totally different... which meant we had to move it all over and due to bigger discs on the front upgrade to 15" rims... and create brackets for the fuel lines to sit on (they were different too)

There are also a few bolt holes that dont exist on my car that we had to make ourselves (Including a hole for the sensor off the Cat Converter on the floor)

The last issue we are having, that i am fixing at the moment is that there is no power to the rear of the car at all due to the two harnesses being totally different, so we have had to rewire the fuel pump in particular to get the car to run (still not quite there yet). Another issue witht the fuel pump is its not quite powerful enough so u will have to get a higher pressure fuel pump (out of a nissan RB-30DET(T) it what we using) so u can get roughly 88psi or more out of it.

Other than that... Yes, the engine will bolt straight into the car...

well you can directly take the front half cut that is compatible with your car... just like THESPUD said... AE-101 to AE-101...
All the dash board and the gas tank is the same...
I swap my 1.3 to 1.5(japan spec-half cut)... directly into my car... have to modify a few mounthing hole as my mechanic said...
I didn't dare to do it so my mechanic done that... only 3 days whole engine was in... the gas tank go and find 1 at those yard... compatible with your model...

only the problem was the RIM!!! Please ensure that your Disc brake size and then your RIM size...
The most safest way is 15" RIM...

Yo Unorthodox. then perhaps you can help me. I swapped a 4E-FTE to a car that didn't have any ECU system and wired it up all myself.
I can figure why you asking about OBD x. On your honda engines, there is a lot of disction from different series by OBD. Perhaps you can help me coz we are gona swap an engine on a CIVIC - B16A on CIVIC that had a SOHC carb 1.3L. My job is the ecu wiring up rather than the real mechanics.

theres basically two OBD standards, the OBD 1 and OBD 2, the OBD 1 is from the era, when some cars didnt have it and it was basically pretty much different in different makers, whilst OBD 2 is a international standard, that basically all cars can use the same OBD 2 socket.

And when you're done.. you better bring that car to the meets!! :mad: I've been thinking of buying a 96-97 Corolla lately and probably doing the same thing eventually, either silvertop or blacktop... or better yet.. 3SGTE!! :D
