Man, With this exhaust leak... It feels fast. And the gas guage hasn't moved yet, I'm not sure if it'* broken or sipping.

For those of you who don't know, the 4AFE is ultra economy. They don't even make hop up parts for it, You just swap in a 4AGE (NA) or 4AGZE (SC).

That'd be the motor in the GT-* coupe, coincidentally the car my dad had before he got the Bonneville.



Toyota did make a supercharged version (that'* what the "Z" stands for in their engine nomenclature), a rare option in the first-generation MR2 - in the mid/late 80'*, it put out about 145hp, and in 1990-1991 in the Japan-market only Corolla coupe, it made 170hp.


"F" = economical twin-cam head

"G" = performance, high-output twin-cam head

"E" = Electronic Fuel Injection

and a Z or T in between the FE/GE designates forced induction, you don't need me to tell you what the T means

All right Mr. "Most knowledgable Toyota guy I've ever met"...

I swear to god there'* a distributer on the side of the engine. And fuel injectors. What'* going on with that? What spins the distributer?

And where in the heck is the FPR?

And why is the front of the engine plastic?

Where are the spark plugs? I assume they're under those square rubber parts... But I'm not that sure.



Know any good Toyota clubs?



On the downside the Geo stalled today... I was fixing the bent in front end using my patented magnolia tree and chain method and it just stalled... That sucked, But it did crank right back up.

What? I fixed the '93 the same way....I think I was like two or three mm off... Who needs a frame machine? Wait til I get my farm jack to it... Little sledge hammer... I'm good at it now.

The distributor is driven by the end of the camshaft, I think. I'm suprised that you didn't freak out about the 5th fuel injector, or didn't you see that yet? It'* stuck into the main section of the intake manifold, for cold starts IIRC. You also forgot to mention the multiple accessory belts - no serpentine here! Yeah, when you wander from GM, you see some really backwards stuff.

That one I don't know. I don't think there'* a test port to test pressure from either. yay.

Oh, that'* your timing belt cover, which you have to take off in several really hard to unbolt pieces in order to change that belt every 60k or so. You also have to somehow get the belts around that motor mount.

I think you're right... Just follow the wires from the distributor to the top of the engine. There they have a huge boot on the end. About 6" down are spark plugs. That'* pretty common on DOHC engines.

I happen to own a '90 Corolla, so I've got the same thing in my driveway (except that mine'* got a 5-speed). I'll be selling mine as soon as I can find a suitable h-bod replacement (preferably a '94-ish Olds 88, but a Buick Lesabre/Park Ave or Pontiac Bonneville will do in a pinch).

Oh yeah, it sure is. It'* good for 102 hp, and about the same in torque, but you'll need to rev it a bit to find the power.

You should rice the thing out, all ghetto like. Find yourself some "Type R" badges, or if you want it to be genuine Toyota, "TRD". Find some random Asian person to write something on your hood, or the top of your windshield, in their native language.

You do know about the Folgers Exhaust Tip mod, don't you? Good for at least 10 hp, and countless double-takes as you drive around. I did it to my dad'* cavalier a few years ago, and he drove it to work that way. He didn't know about it until he got teased by the guys at lunch time.


Alternately, you could get yourself some orange paint and turn it into a General Lee replica. your doors don't open anyway, right?

Oh yeah, the doors open... I got some masons' line inside the door, and a peice behind the fender you pull after you unlock the door... I found handles for $5 each, So I just have to wait until Tuesday when I can go pull them.

I don't think I'll rice it. It'* getting a servicable filter and just made reliable... Unless I find a spare head at the junkyard to port or something....

I went out and got the Haynes manual, there is a fifth injector. That'* kinda cool. I'm not even sure what the top of the engine looks like yet, It' very nasty. And with the clock at 188K, I think I should do a timing belt after the B'* heater core.



Tooling around town in this thing is still fun, It needs more brakes though.... I'm considering swapping discs to the rear but I fear with it'* light weight it'll just lock them up and turn me around. OH! and I found out why the power steering kept getting worse... There'* a huge leak. I put probably 100mi. on the car and he must have filled it up before I picked it up. I've got a lot of cleaning to do... The entire car smells like pot. and lots of it. I think I'll pull the seats just to pull the carpet and clean under there too.
