Where is mtl??

You should have a 4a series engine so the easiest swaps involve other a-series engines like the 4a-ge and it's cariations like the 4a-gze and 20 Valve.

If your engine is carbed switching to fuel injection might be problematic.

4wd reply

I dont know about 4wd but it would be possible to make it rear wheel drive. I read threads on superhonda.com about how guy would take a crv tranny and put in their civics to make it rear wheel drive .I'd imagine it could be done on the corolla as well .

I think he is saying he has the AWD corolla and wants to swap in a 3sgte. Yes it's possible, but it will be a major job. Where did you get the awd corolla those are pretty rare (if thats what you're saying)

The silvertop is a good option that will bolt up to your stock tranny. I've seen that tranny hold up pretty well. The 4AGZE sadly will not fit.

If you want to swap in a 3SGTE, I would suggest using the Celica alltrac tranny, but you're going to need custom axles and a custom driveshaft. Other than that, it should work... there will be obstacles to overcome.

I would be interested in doing it, if you like. I'm about 2 hours from Montreal.

Dr Tweak took the words out of my mouth. I would have suggested a 16V or 20V 4AGE upgrade, if I'm not mistaken mtl is Montreal, there was someone in Ottawa about 6months ago selling a 90-91 AWD Corolla Sedan, very rare to find AWD sedans. He had a 16V 4AGE on it and I bet you that car was fast. I wanted to buy it but him being 5hrs away kinda killed it all. I'm not sure if he sold it or kept it, but it looked sweet. :)

Umm, no it wouldnt work too well from the 4WD tranny

The 4WD tranny isnt a strong gearbox either, a GZE, even a GE/20V GE can break it.

For an RWD conversion you'd have to make a new center tunnel, convert the engine to longitudinal setup.
