  1. Hi everyone, the corolla you can see in my pictures, the bluey greeny ke55 is starting to blow alot of smoke and the engine is being a right pain in the arse ever for a 4k with 180,000km on the clock. decided to do an engine conversion on it, but I would like people with more experiences advice. What engine should I put in that would give me the best results and be the easiest to put in my lil rwd beast. Thank you all in advance David
  2. First of all I'm New to this Forum and i Like to introduce myself. I am Menki and i live in Austria, i am 25 years old and working on Cars since i was 15. Also i am a certified Welder, Former and moulder, and did a lil Bit of CNC Work with Mills and lathes. So now to My car. It is a 75 ke35 Coupe Deluxe in Rust free condition and i bought it for 250€. The previos owner tried to prepare it for a respray but messed it Up. ID Like to know where are the best places to buy parts Like spares or upgrade Aftermarket. And what are your recommended Brand or sellers. AS i live in Austria its hard to find a seller who would send me stuff over seas. Unfortunetly i have never Driven a Stock ke rolla so i can't say what ID Like to Change in Suspension or engine. My idea was to build an old shool Street Racer. Maybe someone Likes to give me His advice or Share His opinion in whats usefull or where i have to Look for parts, whats interchangeable whith other Models etc. Thanks
  3. Hi all, This is my first post and I'm kinda new around here but I thought I'd start documenting my 1981 Toyota Corolla Ke70 build and everything else that comes along with it :wasted: So i bought my little poo brown corolla about a month or two down in Gosford (I live in Sydney) with around 69XXX genuine kms on it off some dude looking like dis, high in the air, but on stock steelies: It was in pretty good condition bar a few dings, had close to no rust, deep dish steering wheel, new alloy radiator and started and ran! Had a pretty dodgy drive back home as the thing pretty much didnt have brakes :wave: I wish I took photos of them but it was metal on metal and looked like it had been that way for a long while... Anyway got her home and did a few things like changed the sludge (oil) in the old 4K motor, did all new pads, shoes, drums etc, the rear shocks were blown so I put some cheap shit ones in to get me through, cut 2 coils out of each of the springs for dope appeal, a AJPS adjustable panhard rod and put some 13x7" shoes on her and thats how she sits up until today: Lovin the roof racks and the granny spec louvre :lovin: After installing the Ae71 Tacho Dash, I cut the dash and centre console to fit 3 52mm gauges (which I haven't gotten around to buying yet... no real point) a double din touch screen Head deck. Also installed some 4inch speakers in the front and 6x9inch speakers in the rear. Purple Haze (Y) I decided i would focus on the suspension and brake work first while i find, buy and build an engine. so i started buying and saving a fairly long list of parts so i could put everything in in one go as it is my daily driver so..... (HOPEFULLY NEXT WEEK!) Anyway, heres what I've bought suspension wise so far: Suspension Parts List Weld on Coilover Sleve Kit (AJPS I believe) Cusco Camber Tops 8kg coils Bilstien dampers Ae86 Hubs and Vented and slotted rotors JDM Ae86 Callipers rebuild with all new seals and pots Braided lines XT130 LCA rebuilt with superpro bushes and new balljoints Ae86 P/S knuckles AJPS RCA's Hardrace Castor Arms TRD Ae86 18mm Rear Swaybar SRI front Strut Brace AJPS tie rod ends, rack rends, rack boots, lock spacer Every front end Superpro bush 6kg Rear coils BC racing rear spring seats (Eventually) Bilstien dampers in the rear All this shit is waiting ready to go and i can't wait to post again with some actual build photos and progress! :thumbsup: :rocknroll:
  4. I've owned my KE30 for some time now and I've noticed it burns a whole lot of oil, I've been filling it with some 10w-30 Maybe that is too thin? I'm thinking of doing a oilchange on it soon and I would like your opinion on what oil to use. Thanks :)
  5. Hi All, I drive a beautiful 1975 KE30 2door, running dedicated LPG on the stock motor with a 5speed K50 transmission. Car is a dream and a keeper, bought from a rolla club member Dale AKA doityourself on rollaclub. I have been driving the rolla for a few years now with no problems, runs beautifully and usually won't give me much starting trouble even on cold winter mornings, really reliable and well taken care of car. The praise should go to Dale (doityourself) for his beautiful work on the LPG conversion, custom exhaust and a lot more tlc. After a while the little engine can be a bit tedious and sometimes you itch for a little more excitement and oomf to match the cars personality, so on that note the time has come for a new heart... or engine, whatever you want to call it. The point of this thread really is to find the perfect Engine Conversion for me and my car. I want to make something beautiful, reliable,fairly economical, powerful, but not ridiculous. For the most part I am hoping to have JapaneseMotorsport (South Australia) handle the conversion and upgrades. I do want to one day do a project car at home by myself but this car isn't that project. This rolla is and will be my one and only daily for a long long time, I can't really see myself driving anything else. I want a professional, quality conversion and I don't trust my knowledge and skills enough to dive into an engine conversion at home. Money wise, for now lets just imagine its not an issue (of course it'll be an issue) I just really want intelligent, unique ideas, don't hold back! SO I want to make a final decision as I've been racking my brain looking and thinking about all the different engine swaps that have and haven't been done on the net. I want the overall best engine conversion for my 2door KE30 Corolla bringing these factors into thought: - Daily driver - Power, but will not be racing or drifting, just a little oomf and grunt - Sound and Looks - A big one, I DEFINITELY want to keep running dedicated LPG on the new engine I put in my rolla (don't have much info on how difficult that will be but any info would be appreciated!) - Decent-ish fuel economy - Preferably not turbo So thats about it, hopefully this sparks a good conversation over which is the overall BEST KE30 engine swap for a daily driver just looking for a better performance out of his favourite little car. Any unique conversions would be awesome, would love to do something that hasn't been done but not going to do something just because its different if its not the best choice overall. After all the reading I've done my mind at the moment sways towards a well built 20v 4age running LPG. Sorry for the long read and any dumb questions. Cheers! Joel
  6. Hi Guys, After almost a year, I finally have my brakes and suspension where I want it. Now it's time for more power! I am contemplating purchasing an SC14 supercharger unit for my 2TC. I have seen a couple pictures of other people doing this but have not been able to find a proper write up. Do you all have any advice and direction to lend me before I embark on this? I am new to superchargers and could use all the help I can get! Thank you all! Chase H
  7. So i own a 1980 Ke55 I'm just wondering if there was any little things or even bigger things that i can do to my motor to give it that little bit of extra grunt. I;m willing to spend $$ i just want to see if i can give it that bit more power ! anything would be appreicated. The motor is completely stock at the moment. :wave:
  8. I was curious and internet research could only take me so far. What is the best engine I can get for my AE70 that bolts up to my T50 transmission? I like fuel economy bit I love power more. I was looking at the 4age but I am not sure if that's the best choice. I am also open to turbo kits if they are common on the engine. Also I am currently running a 3tc with 230xxx miles on it. Appears to run well, but for how long?
  9. Hello everyone I buy used corolla from 1981 year. With car are some troubles but the biggest is burn oil too much than he should. So i would like to do general engine renovation. My engine is 4K, 1290cc, 60 HP. If somebody did renovation this engine or have Repair Manual please contact with me. [email protected] Best Regards
  10. hi all have a Question regarding the lower radiator support. mine is rusting out and I cannot find an ae71 specific one however I have found an ke70 one it looks like it will fit but still have some concerns it won't fit. just wondering if any body could let me know if it will work cheers Liam
  11. I have a Toyota Kp36 PickUp Truck wich I am really proud about http://imgur.com/a/3rRfs#0 :) The power I get is very low and I want to do an engine conversion but I don't know what engine will fit without any chassis conversion. The other thing is that because I live in a small country (Cyprus) not many option are available regarding the engines availability. So I was thinking about installing a Weber kit I found online but I don't know if I will need any other changes on the 2K engine, http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/330762578476?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 If you can give all the options available I would really appreciate it.
  12. Hey all, I've got a little KE26 wagon. The engine is currently on it's way out, and i want to set it up as a sleeper. I've been doing some research on which way to go with this, but as you might expect, there isn't heaps of info around on stuffing a hot little engine in there. I want to put in a turbo engine, or at least something powerful to start with. I don't really know what options I have. I'm not looking at redesigning the whole engine bay of the car, so I was wondering was engines would be somewhat 'bolt in' in terms of engine mounts. It's got a 3K in the car at the moment, so i was wondering if keeping with the K series engine is a good path to follow, or whether I might as well go for something later model. Any ideas, suggestions or experience would be great! Thanks a heap, Clancy p.s don't mind the flames, that was from when i was a kid ;)
  13. Hi, I own a 1980 Toyota Corona xt130 wagon (xt131?). It has 108000 kms on the clock and is running of a crappy 1.9L Holden Starfire engine. It was my first car and I didn't know what a nightmare the engine would be. Anyway, recently I have been having some issues with it. While driving the car will sometimes randomly start jolting pretty violently and to stop it I apply the clutch. In extreme cases it will continue as i slow and change down gears until it eventually stalls. After letting it sit for a while it usually works fine. The first times this happened it was going up hill at medium speeds (60 & 80 km/h) but now it has happened on straights after a while of driving. I replaced the fuel filter, but this didn't really help. I was thinking it could be something wrong with the carb or fuel pump as it seems to be a starvation issue but I am no mechanic so I don't know! Also it has no fan shroud if that would make much of a difference (vapour lock?) Any help on this would be greatly appreciated! Still love it's looks though, old toyotas are the greatest. Cheers, Jordan.
  14. G'day guys, Can someone please check over my knowledge and sums for the largest capacity engine that can be fitted to a KE25 Corolla. As I understand the following - Original Tare weight of KE25 Corolla - 760kg Vehicles up to 800kg - 3 x 760kg = 2280cc capacity for n/a engine Vehicles up to 800kg - 2.5 x 760kg = 1900cc capacity for turbo or supercharged Is VSB14 v2 the latest released version for NCOP and are these relevant for QLD? Has anyone fitted engines equivalent to the above and successfully gone through engineering? If so, are the only upgrade requirements essentially brakes and suspension? Thanks for the help.
  15. hi guys, i have a 1977 ke35 with a little 3k (manual) ... I kind just finished the car and i don't really want to change the motor, cause if i do a can't drive it (P-Plate). Iv been driving it around and i want a little more power i guess. The engine is all stock. I'm not really experienced with toyota engines, what part fits what model, etc. So could i get some ideas on carbies, extractors, fuel pumps, cranks, exhaust, gear box, diff. Id like a 5 spd box. I don't want to spend more that 1500. 2000 if i have to. i don't really know whats the easiest way to get more power in these engines so all help is needed :bash: Thanks...
