  1. Hi guys. Anyone still here to ask a few questions? I want to use a Corolla 1998 4efe for a forged engine project to be swapped with my 4efte. I am making a list of extra bits that I will need. Please help. 1) engine head is the same besides camshafts that will have to be replaced with 4efte ones 2) oil sump must be drilled for turbo oil feed return. I need the metal pipe to do it. Cannot find it. Help! 3) the fte engine block has an extra water drain cock that is probably used to feed water to the turbo. How can I manage that on the 4efe block? 4) knock sensor. Th
  2. Great post! Which torque should I use for the diff bolts? what are the diff bearings ORM? what’s the shimming tolerance? I hope someone can help!
  3. You couldn’t be more clear! This all came to my head because back in the day is Sam told me about it. I was just curious to know if it was worth it but after what you said I’m going to stick to other mods! I’m going to upload new information about diffusion of the car soon!
  4. Hi guys. Time ago @Sam44 suggested me too use the Corolla inlet on the FTE engine as the airflow is better. Considering the technical differences such as the vacuum pipes, the water pipes, the sensors and the Air Control Valve, I would like to know if I can use the FDE throttle on the Corolla inlet and add what is missing on the intake swapping it from the FTE intake. My major concern is the air control valve that is usually sitting on the left side of the intake and must be swap with the Corolla air sensor that will be charade in another position on the right side of the intake. @sa
  5. @Sam44 @RoyalDutchie Sam! Happy Holydays! How have you been? i was thinking to swap the 4efte manifold with the 4efe manifold but I would like to keep the 4efte throttle on. Is that poasible? I would just add the air temp sensor in the 4efe intake and the rest should be fine.
  6. Hello. I just received a CT9 A but I was aiming for the B version as my glands engine has CT9 B. What do you suggest doing? Is the extra turbine fin the only difference? I also noticed that the hot side ring is in a different material but I don’t know what could be different inside the turbine. @Jay
  7. I already changed the box oil that was perfect. No metal pieces in it. We put the car on the bridge and put it in first gear. Moved the wheel and would hear squeaking in the gearbox on the opposite side of the differential.
  8. Thank you for your feedback. The knocking noise happens when the engine is cold and I believe that it is a matter of tolerance between parts in the gearbox. When the engine gets warmer the noise is lower but then I have the gear inserts problem. Mostly when the engine is warm sometimes at the red light I can’t even get any gear in until I have to push it in. If CV joints or cables would be faulty then the problem would be all the time but it happens sometimes. Back in the days when my mechanic replaced the gearbox with the same one because the third gear was making noise, I got a better workin
  9. @Claymorehi there. Long time no speak! I had a good good good time driving the car with the turbo engine and the Corolla 4efe gearbox. The gearbox wasn’t fresh it had already some synchronization issues plus probably the clutch master or slave release is leaking and it bothers putting in gears sometimes. I will replace them. Regarding the gearbox I still haven’t understood if Glanza V C56 is stronger and more reliable compared to my gearbox that should be a C140-150. My car is heavier compared to the starlet which means that shorter gears in the first gears help the engine and it is fun t
  10. I am trying to figure out if the 4efe manual gearbox C140, C150 from a Corolla E11 (that is matching a 4efte from a Starlet Glanza V ep91) has the same transmission as the C56 that matches a 4efte manual Glanza v. I want to put in a KAAZ 1.5 LSD transmission. Anyone? @Jay @Claymore
  11. Hello. I hope you are going to read this. I have swapped a 4efte ep91 eutomatic engine from a Glanza V into a Corolla E11 and I am in the process of changing the exhaust manifold with an external wastegate for the next step that is adding a piggyback. The plan was a DET3 but then I read about this standalone and I got curious. My engine is in the same situation as yours. Does the MT standalone ECU work with the auto to manual engine conversion? Let me know. Thanks!
  12. Hey guys I am planning to change the exhaust manifold with a turbo relocation kit with external wastegate. This means that I can use a piggyback to raise boost and finally Dyno the car and map the DET3. I am still looking for a base map that seems to be impossible to find for a 4efte. This said I would like to use the high/low boost solenoid to have the switch with two different boost pressures. What I need to know is if it is possible to make the solenoid work at different boost pressures. I heard that you can go low boost only if the set up is stock. Let me know what you think.
  13. Hey guys. I just wanted to share with you that my car won a price in the special car category over 600 cars!
  14. I have to say that I will continue using the stock thermostat. The problem I had with the spark plugs was probably caused by the engine recovery mode that I drove with a while due to the wrong wiring on the water temp sensor. I will check spark plugs in a few weeks to see if something changes but at least I will not blow the engine because of the liquid leak
