Okay, I maybe am getting a 1989 Toyota Corolla SR5, does anybody know anything about these cars roadtest wise, I will show some pics if I get it.
what do you mean roadtest wise?
Performance, handling, reliability, a roadtest
Well the reliabilty is going to great, its a Toyota :thumbs: Handling is also going to be good, because its front wheel drive, and its light. Performance is pretty decent, theyre pretty quick, but Im not sure of the exact hp and torque specs.
I think it is 98 hp and 98 torque :banghead:, turbo here I come, and I thought that year was a RWD?
Im pretty sure they were transferred to FWD in 89. 1988 was the last year for RWD I believe. Same with the Celica.
Excuse me, they were transferred to FWD in 88. :banghead:
Damn it to hell :fu: . That is retarded, how will I deal with a FWD :laughing:
Just like you did with the Integra. :laughing:
Well that actually had power, a SHIT LOAD of power :laughing:
correct me if i'm wrong but that model rolla should come with a 4AG?... i'm pretty sure that it's mounted exactly the same as a fwd SR20DET..? :D.. you could deal with it that way!! :D
I'm not doing a swap on this piece of shit, the thing looks worse than my Beetle
....How bads the beetle? :ohcrap:
Ahhh yes I see.... :doh: Why are you buying the Corolla?
I dunno really, maybe because its the all-track SR5 :hi:
Well thats a good reason! How about you swap in a twin turbo Supra engine? :hi:
How bout not :laughing:
WHy not? Sounds like a good idea to me....its better than that 98hp 4 cylinder you got in there :laughing:
Well I can't waste anymo money, the things looks like hell and I am thinking of getting rid of the Beetle so I can work on this one
I would get rid of the Bettle.
SOME MOTHER ****ER BOUGHT THE CAR FROM UNDER ME :cussing: :cussing:
...Now you know how I feel :oops: Except you didnt lose a car over it.
awwww how cute, he's smiling :) :laughing:
Yes, and its got lazy eye :laughing:
Now why would you get rid of the Beetle? They are cheap and easy to make
look good, and cheap and easy to make very quick!
Maybe instead of going around looking at other cars as projects, you simply dive into the one you HAVE. If you don't like it when you're done you can make money off of it.
yeah man stop doing the dope and buy the F U C K I N G Corrola or the beetle then make it look like herbie
Okay genius, I have the Beetle but it needs a new engine, tranny and suspension up the gazoo. It isn't really driveable but I could keep it as a project, but now I will have 4 cars :banghead:
I bet you can find one of them engines in a junk yard. I would just get the Beetle done first like Chris said.
Yeah, now that I have 3200 less in my pocket I will have to wait awile :wink2:
then fix the beetle with all the guzoo
That means everything will have to be replaced, do you have any concept of
How bout you look it up on google and see how much a restoration is
Remember, it took me under $1000 plus my own labor to go from this:
I knew you were gonna say that, but I really don't have the time to do it also, I will keep it, but it will only get little things done here and there
Trust me, you'll be glad you did. You'll actually learn a lot more about cars by doing it (especially if you insist on doing as much as you can yourself), and gain confidence in being able to do anything to any car.
he's wiser then yoda... :thumbs:
remember sr5 is single cam carbed... aka 4a-c...it might be different cuz its the later year... then it might be 4a-e... fuel injected... but i dunno, ive never driven the ae92 corolla... but i do know this... it will be slow
naah, an 89 rolla is a 4A-G engine, my mate jamie has a KE70 rolla which has a 3A-C engine and he's got an AE92 which has a 4A-G engine, he's gettin a 4A-GZE for both car's, CRAZY PHUCKER!!
...trust me, its not a 4ag if its an sr5... 4age only comes in GTS
corollas... oh, and technically the Geo Prism LSI and late 80s Chevy Nova
i did some research (mind you i dont know much about ae92, cuz im into the ae86) and they have 4a-fe... so, yeah... about 95 ponies...
i'm guessin' ur in america? here in aus the sr5 is called a levin n the gts
is called a trueno, no difference in them at all if they're both eight
sixes. (except the front end)
they come with a 16valve 4a-ge engine that pushes 130ps max output, stock.
i've done my research on rolla's aswel, quite a lot of my friend's have rolla's with sick transplants.
The last year for the Ae86 here was 1987. After that, we got the Ae92 FWD
and the SR5 version didn't have the 4AGE. it had a 90hp carburated 4AFE,
and the GT-S only got the 130 hp FI engine in 1990.
A lot of people here have brought over Ae86 trueno front clips so they could copy the JDM examples... But we never got that version officially. Personally, I like the popup headlight versions best anyhow.
here you go 99integra. some info on 4age
australia stopped gettin' the AE86 (JDM) trueno and levin in 1987, mainly
because they changed the chassis type (86 was the chassis number, thus the
reason for AE86), we never got an SR5 or GT-S model, it was all just Trueno
or Levin, my friend adam is tryin' to get his hand's on an AE86 Trueno
(proper JDM with a 16 valve 4A-GE engine), it's difficult because a large
majority that was imported here in the late 80's have been exported to
place's like NZ and europe.
i believe the only place's to have the proper JDM model's exported from JAPAN was The UK, NZ and Aus.
If it's an all-track, doesn't that make it AWD?
Yeah, whats your point?
