FS Small Port 4AGE Parts

It comes with great regret that I am selling these parts that I went to great lengths to get a hold of, but I am in the process of buying a 4AGZE clip which is something I've longed for, for ages now and the opportunity has arisen to get my hands on one. I was in the stages of rebuilding a 4AGE smal...

Re: Fubar Toda Cams

Thanks Jondee86 and Sgt, will do.

I cannot feel any of the marks with my fingernail. I will measure the cams to make sure they are all the same diameter.

However, would you feel comfortable using these in a freshly built engine?

Fubar Toda Cams

Hi, Unfortunately it seems that I have purchased some Toda cams on eBay which have heat damage. They had surface rust which I got off, but then left these marks. The cam seal end looks fucked but there is no cuts into the material. It's all smooth. See pictures below. http://i72.photobucket.com/albu...

Re: Smallport Head

Hi,

Sorry yes you are right, for some reason I was thinking the head had a mount on it but they bracket bolts to the block.

I'll not worry about the additional holes in the head, as this is going in my AW11 and I will not have anything for this.

Thanks for the reply :)

The smallport cylinder head- are the bolting holes for the engine mount different to the bigport head?

Re: 87 MR2 Build

What do you mean by 'get rid of as much stuff as possible'?

Are you continuing with the build?

You can't really get rid of any wires in the harness as they are all needed.

The link AE86Kai has listed is great and should sort you right out.

Yes it is a big-port sorry. My current engine is the same.

http://club4ag.com/faq_and_tech_pages/P ... 04A-GE.htm

3rd paragraph does say AE92 came with TVIS - I stand corrected.

Sounds like a dizzy or injector issue.

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...

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

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.
