Topic: Turbo conversion for 84' Toyota Corolla box shape

Hi Guys,

A relative of mine wants to do a turbo conversion to his 84' Toyota Corolla RWD 1.6 GL. He's looking for reliability and driveability, with power figures reaching 300 KW on the wheels.

Motors that we have considered are:

4AGE/4AGZE 16V
4AGE 20V
3SGE
Mazda 2.0 FE 16V
2JZGTE

Any advice on which would be the suitable motor, and the preferred mechanic/tuner to do the engine transplant and necessary gearbox/ break modifications would be much appreciated. We are based in the Kempton park/ east rand area so preferably a mechanic in this area would be ideal.

Thanks   ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/wink

Howzit,

All the above mentioned engines should be able to reach your specified output, but with considerable amount of work done to them. The closest you will get to that power figure without doing any engine Mods will be the 2JZGTE. It all comes down to your budget and what you plan to actually do with the car.. Track? Street? Drag? Drift? or just a weekend toy?

Making 300wkw on all those engines except for the 2J is not reliable and you will need race fuel.
