AE92 4AGE Sedan Project

Recommended Posts

Hi guys and girls, thought I would post up my new project that I have been planning for quite a while. Have had the 4AGE donor car for over a year now but have been searching for the perfect car to chuck all the good bits into! So here is the one I found. I am the 3rd owner, 157,xxxkms on the clock. Paint is near perfect apart from fade on the roof which will be being resprayed factory colour. Jacked it up to have a look underneath and found NO RUST! So before I pulled the 4AGE out I decided to comp test it, in which, no joke it lost compression on cylinders 1-3 while I was testing it.... All had 30psi except cyl 4 which had 140psi. So plan is to rebuild it, I pulled the head off on the weekend and couldn't see any obvious signs as to why it lost comp. Will be dropping the head off at the machiners tomorrow to have it pressure tested. I also picked up a RV Seca which will donate it's 255mm front brakes and 243mm rear disc brake conversion. Will be a whole new car when it is done! Plan is to keep it relatively stock on the outside. Just want a clean weekender. Here's some photos for you all!

That's fascinating! I can't see it being a head gasket or a crack, which doesn't leave much except valves sticking open from not being used, or a fault with the meter.  Its possible rings broke in those cylinders if they were glued up from sitting. Make sure to tell us what caused it.

Otherwise, the Corolla looks excellent, and the background looks Queenslandish, so rust-free is surprising.
