a guy at school is thinking of selling his 2.8L Supra engine (cos he cant fit duel turbos to it) and i was wondering if i could whip it into my '82 corolla which has a pissy little 1.3L engine.

thx Olie

Well it's probably possible but whether they would allow it on the road is another thing. A lot of other parts of the car would have to be upgraded to like gearbox, diff, brakes. suspension, etc. etc.... :smokin:

The thing is those components on ya car were only meant to handle a certain amont of force and weight so with a more powerful and heavier engine it's very likely that the gearbox, diff and /or axles would so go. The brakes were not designed for the extra weight and perfomance you would be adding plus the suspension certainly would need a bit of modification to handle the extra wieght that's being added. :smokin:

lets just say that the front brakes on this car were fitted for making sure that the car didn't move, if you get my drift ;)

sus can be fixed easily...... gear box, well i can get one of tjose for basically nothing, only reason i don't have it now is 'cos my engine doesn't have the power to utilise it

Well, seeming the Supra engine is a 6cyl, and the corolla engine is a 4cyl, the answer is no, it can be done, but, with a lot of work, you would have to change all of the engine mounts, install a supra gearbox (the corolla gearbox would not take the power), install either a cut down VL commodore diff, or a Supra diff, replace the brakes (all round disc for a start) then you have the problem with the chassis strength, If I was to do this mod, I would actually ladder (strengthen) the chassis by welding strengthening plates along the chassis, I would then think of changing the suspension to compensate with the extra weight at the front of the car due to the supra engine.......


So In Hein sight you would be better off buying another car that can be easily modded..

Olie I really dont think all those modifications would be worth it in the end. For all the money you have to spend converting everything over, it would be much easier to buy something that already has a bit of grunt in it.

In just one day I can drive these;
00 Hyundi lantra SE
99 Hyundi lantra SE
95 Ford transit van
95 csepel bus
84 Holden rodeo
84 Hino truck

Isn't it amazin' how many vehicles that one can drive in their time but I ain't goin' to even list them as it would probably take 2 pages at least. :eek:

Legally and insurance wise ya may get away with a 1.5-1.8l Toyota engine that was available for those models then a bit of fine engine balancin' and tuning but that would be about the limit I say. :smokin:

An 82 Corolla you say.....I know what you can do to that....

Replace the engine with a 4AGE engine out of an AE86 Corolla (1.6l DOHC)
Koni sports shocks all round, Koni Springs, and Koni Dampers.
Replace the diff with an LSD from an AE86.
Gearbox from an Ae86............


Hang on..........why don't you just buy an AE86? :p

You idiot, I almost feel like hitting you for that comment…..

The engine in the 92-96 corolla was an awesome engine for power increasing mods, whack a super charger in them @ 6-9 PSI, NOS it, and you got your-self a damn fast light weight race car.

NOS is a great power increasing mod, I know plently of people that have camrys even with 75-90HP shots of NOS in them, and they totaly fly...

moose, you should know that NOS is a brand, not a chemical. Nitrous is what you are thinking of. :D:D

Anonymous

Yes but NOS is the most well known, so it is a word I can use that everyone knows what I am talking about, and it is quicker to type than Nitrous. And the systems used I am talking about are in-fact NOS systems. :D

Nitrous "Oxide", if ya's want to be totally correct about this, is great at the dentist's. ;)

NOS is awesome, assuming you have checked out whether your shot is safe.
And Olie, just buy a new car. An 82 Corolla is not exactly the type of car that one would trick out for performance. Maybe you could get it to almost a million miles like Albinus.
Is that 2.8L V6 off your friends Supra a 5M-GE? I need one right now, and even thou it'd be stupid to have you ship it from AUS, it'd be nice to know they still exist......

Are things different in Melbourne?
Since 1981 Supra's have had a 2.8L V6, starting with the 5M Block which was carburated and moving up to the 5M-GE which had EFI. After 1987 I dont know that much about because they got into the 7M-GE motor, and on to the 2JZ (Fast and the Furious explains that) but those still had a V6, a 3.0 i think.
Dont tell me Supra's dont have a V6, thats all they have ever had.

lolololololololololol

Trust me, the Toyota Supra has an inline 6

roflmao, mate, you dont have a clue

You don't even know the Toyota Engine codes.....even I can look at those engine codes you gave me and tell you exactly what they are....

5M-GE = 2.8L SOHC EFI 12V inline six cylinder

7M-GE = 3.0L DOHC EFI 24V inline six cylinder

2JZ ( not even a complete engine code)
I asume you meant the 2JZ-GTE?...
2JZ-GTE = 3.0L DOHC EFI 24V inline six cylinder Twin Turbo.




Edit: Added this to the bottom of my post because it is most apropriate:

Oh yeah I knew that - SORRY
I meant inline (i own a cressida) it was just a slip of tongue (or keyboard) to write a V.

I assumed you thought there was a different number than 6....
... hence the post. MOOSE IS RIGHT EVERYONE

Inline - V - don't matter when the gas tank is empty:laugh:

JediAgent

When your low on cash and that bottom o' tank feeling comes youd have wanted to buy a 4-cylinder. But then again those dont always get the best gas mileage. I would rather drive my porsche all day and take my dads corolla to the pump. I can put 87 in it (92 in the porsche) and it gets 35 MPG. How much is Gas where y'all live
87, 89, and 92 respectively
1.35
1.45
1.55
all USD
