1UZFE in KE30

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

i am about to commence doing an engine swap into a KE30 corolla.

The 1UZFE non vvti.

i am trying to create a list of the hardware required to carry this out and so far i have a feeling i am missing some things.

i am wanting to do an entire suspension upgrade to coilovers and changing the rear drum brakes to disc brakes.


so far i know i will require the following:


  • engine (busy trying to source a suitable candidate)
  • gearbox (planning on installing the 21R gearbox with the adaptor plate
  • management
  • clutch kit for the 21R gearbox
  • M75 LSD diff (bit hard to source where i am)
  • strut brace for stability


i assume i will need a different steering rack in order to work as well as the correct driveshaft, i have no clue what steering rack or driveshaft to utilise.

the struts i will need to change accordingly as well because i would prefer to buy a suitable set of coilovers as opposed to mixing and matching this.

any input in this will be welcomed

oh, i am based in South Africa so parts needs to be available here if possible.
