Re: mk2b sporting engine ideas?

You'd be looking at a fair chunck to get a coop lump in there. It has been done, but I doubt on the friendly side of 3k. You're right about the 20v being a bitch to get in, but the 16v is no walk in the park either.

Do you really want to spend 3k on a car that unfortunately isnt worth that much? I bought my JTD for 2.5k, spent 300 quid on it, I'm happy, but if I want much more power, I know I'll need a new car.

Re: mk2b sporting engine ideas?

true. its a lovely car, like it has lots of things in it which i like, and is comfy. if i go for another car, i would be looking at having basic things, poss window winders etc. looking at a corsa b with red top turbo engine, integra type r. something along those lines with a healthy 200bhp and nice amount of torque. but while i have a perfect car on the drive, seeing what i can do with it. to mod my engine would be great and have been told gains could be up to 160 bhp and woop hgt's arse's but i want something which would kill the likes of hgt's and corsa 1.8 sri's etc. just trying to work out poosibilties.

The price of your car and 3-4k would get you an s2000, scooby etc. If you drop a coup 16vt lump in it will be more front heavy than a hgt and a bitch to put the power down.

Re: mk2b sporting engine ideas?

yea get a glanza or starlet gt , a mate has one and are fast as f**k and with some slight modification such as fmic boost control and mapped can see some very good gains , plus they are different dont see many of them about and have toyota reliability. they dont handle very well as standard so you will need to think about changing the suspension.
