Re: Are there rare 1986 corolla Gt-s?

Hi I bought a 1986 toyota corolla GT-S. It came with power windows and power sunroof but no power steering. Also is black an original color for these cars? I saw on my fuel cap door a few red paint showing after paint chips. The engine bay is black. I wonder if the previous owners bought a replacem...

Re: Best engine for daily driving and drifting with power.

A well built 16V with decent headwork can make VERY good power....... To keep it all simple..... run factory ecu and wiring..... 7 rib block(with proper attention to deck height), 3 rib crank and rods. Have the rods modified to accept the larger 20mm pins - press fit. Have the crank and rods prepped...

Re: Jeff's winter 2012 20v engine build

Re: Quick question about 8.9:1 4A-GZE pistons

One additional question, I was reading up on the piston differences and it seems these 8.9:1 GZE pistons are forged instead of cast. Does this mean the block bores should have some extra clearance to allow for piston expansion? Or don't I have to worry about this? I can only hope that I will find a...

More airflow, more power... less throttle angle required to ho...
