I've personally done some tuning to these engine and they respond very well. I have done cams and proper solid lifters for them. Pushing 145bhp on a turbo inlet manifold and std cynos 4-2-1 manifold all still on a standard bottom end. My series regulations mean it has to stay n/a.

...'But the problem I have, is the cost. For that same money I bet you could have had a 300bhp starlet.

 

Now don't get me wrong, you have a purpose for it. But for anyone looking to have a road going car, or track car without limitations, I don't see the sense.'

 

i find ways to re-purpose parts and do my own labour to cut costs while still meeting/exceeding the spec i'm after, so no. I couldn't have had a 300bhp starlet. well I could have, but for how long?

at 300bhp i would need bigger wheels, to fit bigger tyres, an lsd different gearing. boost is a long slippery slope and I have exactly 0 interest in E series engines on boost. my only interest was the fact that the toyota starlet Gi and not the gt, was a homologation spec model for a race series, and i wanted to see why toyota didnt use parts they already had to raise the spec...and in building mine I understand more. Boost is fun, but a pointless waste of money where I live in my opinion, our roads are trash and few turbo starlets even bother to do trackdays. if i had a stock turbo starlet i'd daily it and go full on with my time attack build (engine spec is already fully planned out, aluminium toyota 2.0/ screamer )

 

p.s.My initials for my middle names literally are N. A.

update: Dont use the usdm metal headgasket with 4efe pistons, the outer edges of the pistons hit the head at high temp/rpms. Currently refreshing my engine and noticed it. woops.

Nice cheers for the heads up. I have just put my 5efhe in my ep91 last week the wiring was a mission but all works as it should. Put my 4e conversion flywheel on torqued all the bolts up fitted the clutch put the box on and found out the 5e dust guard plate does not have as many bolt holes as a 4e so had to take it all back to bits and swap the plates over so I could fit my g6 box lesson learned lol

heh, when i first put my motor together i forgot to install the plate entirely. i cant even remember where i put it, ill sort it sometime. Did some research and the usdm 5e head with the cam sensor has recessed areas in the same spots where my 4e pistons are touching the head.

Would be nice if you could link to a few photos of the usdm heads at all??
