Hey guys.....just a random thought.....I have a 89 corolla 4wd wagon......and I want to put a turbo in my 89 I thought maybe I would trade the wagon for turbo and intercooler at the autowreckers.......but what turbos will fit into my GTS which ones are the best....and is this a good idea? Will I be able to just bolt on and go? I wish I knew more about cars..:(

easiest thing to do with VERY little advil rating?

buy a JDM GTZ front clip with the 4A-GZE and... voila! he is clean.
forced induction as well as JDM bragging rights.

Levin clips sell for about 1k USD here.

and yes, turbo kits are made for our cars.

also, you can fab any kit off the base of a civic turbo kit! has been done by someone here on his 20v.

aaand civic turbo kits run for about 500 USD.

IMO? gze swap.

okay that does seem real simple.....but what is a clip?
Im pretty illiterate on this car stuff still.

Allthough i've been following that other guys GTS monster engine know the noob that wants the most power outta his car without a turbo.
Man I sure have been learning lots that way.
I think once I actually start my mods I'll go that way first.....seems real fuel/air mapping...or figuring out boost......seems like a solid way to learn.

thanks for you impute though.
LOL yeah i stopped posting in his topics..

a clip is a cut from the firewall up... fenders, hood, bumper, lights... everything including the firewall up.

4A-GZE Levin front clip

learn first, then know where you want to go, how fast you want to get there and what machine you want to make to take you there.

LOL corny but i think its very cute. yes a very cute catch phrase that is.

fvck venus auto... i called them, got a quote.... was supposed to get pictures and a shipping quote.... they told me to e-mail a certain address... i did, and got nothing.... so i went somewhere cheaper and am satisfied
who was cheaper!?!? and how much was it?

venus is about 1k, but i live in sacramento/elk grove so i wouldnt have to pay for shipping.
