Re: t-vis butterflies

Hi SgtRauksauff, I'm doing a same sort of build on my AW11 but swapping the bigport head, inlet manifold and pistons to all smallport. But will be trimming head down to 35cc along with port work, deshrouding, polishing etc have 260/252 cat cams too. I'm going to ditch the TVIS completely.

Re: I have a 4age frankenstein and its driving me crazy

The AW11 resistor box is on the right hand side of the engine bay near the engine fan/vent. Corolla Smallport injectors are high impedance and will not run (I have looked into this for running higher CC injectors) http://club4ag.com/tech-data/tech-specs/toyota-injectors-size-color-application-and-im...

Re: I have a 4age frankenstein and its driving me crazy

I believe the MR2 dizzy and AE92 dizzy are the same as I'm using my MR2 dizzy in the Frankenstein engine I am actually building myself!

Is the MR2 ECU looking for a MAP instead of an AFM?

Re: t-vis butterflies

I'm doing a small port conversion on my AW11 and I am not using the TVIS. I have gone to the trouble of sourcing a small port inlet manifold rather than doing the big port adapter and big-port inlet manifold. I was under the impression the small port is better because of the head and manifold design...

Re: Small Port Oil Drain

In terms of the high comp block, I am using the high comp pistons...and the compression will be loads more than standard 10.3

Does that alter things?

Small Port Oil Drain

Hi,

I have the small port cylinder head with the oil drain.

I am using a 3-rib block which does not have the inlet for the drain.

If I was to re-route the drain from the head to the sump, will it be better than blocking it off completely?

Cheers

Re: 4A-GE 16v Rear Freeze Plug Info

Taking the box off and flywheel will be adequate, the engine doesn't need to come off. However when I was taking my flywheel off, you'll find that the only mount holding the engine on, is on the RHS side. You'll need to support the sump and engine a lot more, otherwise when you attempt to undo the f...

The TVIS is there for the standard camshafts. Putting in higher lift and longer duration camshafts is a known issue for the TVIS. Various people on here have discussed it but not too many have actually removed it. Read here. Look at the 150-160hp info http://www.billzilla.org/4agmods.htm I rebuilt m...

Re: Rebuilt 4age bigport no spark

Further more to your lack of power issue on threads above - the TVIS being stuck open is a good thing.

I've deleted my TVIS as it gives me more torque at the bottom end. Mine really does pull strongly in the higher rev range, even more than it did with the TVIS operating as normal.

Buy another throttle body off of a working engine if you can.

I am struggling to find a 81.5mm bore head gasket 0.03 to 0.04" thick

My new Pistons are going to be 81.5mm

I've found 83mm to before obtainable, would this be an issue? Or can I use a 20v head gasket as they are obtainable in 82mm for my desired thickness.
