Was gonna reply to this thread yesterday, but didn't get the chance to. So:


Not only is it DOHC with four valves per cylinder, it'* also of a 'pentroof' design. Think hemi. But hemi can't do four valves per cylinder. That'* where pentroof comes in.




Above are two "G" type Toyota heads, aka performance twin-cam. The two-valver is the 5M-GE, same as ol' Cressy and the second-generation Celica Supra. The four-valver is that of the 7M-GE/7M-GTE, used in the 89-91 Cressida (NA only) and third-generation Supra.

5M (below) is hemi, 7M (top) is pentroof.

The "F" type head has valves at a narrower angle than the "G" heads for the sake of economy.

If you are going to pull the head for performance'* sake, be sure to have the bottom of the head machined (it'* aluminum) if you want the gasket to last; the block should be relatively free of any pits, as well. And have valve seals done, lose any potential current or future oil burning problems.

As for rear discs, you could try and look into ones from the GT-* coupe, but I'm not sure at all as to the interchangability.

Oh boy. Damn copycat. I had a 93 Bville first, and We have our 4A Powered Nova (corolla clone).

Just wish it was a clone of an AE-86... Or a 70 Nova...

ditto, I wish dad'* old car was the AE86 and not the AE92, which was the next generation and was FWD. Still a fun handling runabout though.




DORIFTO!!

I found a fully optioned out Corolla at the junk yard... I got handles a turn signal and a cluster with a tach, I'm not sure if it will work, but for $20 who cares.

The more of the design of this car I see the more I like it, The brakes are a work of art. Sealed slides... Why can't GM get that idea?

Believe me, I've tried to look for a Corolla version of BC, and failed. There'* Corolland or whatever, but they don't even talk about the old ones.

I've a ~1100+ post-count there (not including "Lounge" type posts), but I don't hang out in the Corolla area. A very large forum (larger than BC), be wary in the Off-Topic (if non-Toyota talk tickles your fancy) section as there are many non work-safe threads. I'm known there with the same name.

You're the AE92 model of Corolla, for reference. Lots to search for there, they'll lay the smack down on you if you don't search
