Corolla: Engine swap   7 comments

The first job on the corolla was to swap out the standard 4k-e and auto box for the 4age out of the wagon.

Here is how the engine bay looked before i started.

Pulling the motor out.

And the 4age sitting in the engine bay.

When i mounted the 4age in the wagon i used the stock crossmember and made engine mounts to suit.

I was never really happy with the end result so i changed up the mounts for the sedan. I copied the way mark did his ke/sr20 engine mounts.

First i cut the stock brackets off the crossmember.

Then bolted up the stock ae86 engine mounts to the 4age, cut the crossmember brackets down to suit and tacked them in place .

The crossmember is now in the car all welded up and painted
