Hi guys, I know this is AE101 owners club but in Aus that means you got the pov-spec 4AFE model (we didn't get the cool 4AGE Levins, Truenos or FXs) - all the decent models were the 1.8L 7A-powered AE102s Razz Anyway, my dad bought this new in 1997, and I inherited it when I first got my license in 2004, with actual change of ownership in about 2009.  1-owner blood relation makes it so much better for service history etc Very Happy

Thanks guys, I've got a Youtube video of how it sounds that I'll post when the 7 days are up for anyone who's interested

In the meantime, dyno plot:

Nothing amazing, but on-par with what your average stock 16v 4AGE pulls on a DD dyno, just with much better low-down torque

The as-promised exhaust video - this is from about 20-90km/h in 2nd gear, little help from the concrete barriers and a slight downhill on the on-ramp



A couple of extra photos I found running around showing the evolution


Stock engine bay


First attempt at painting cam cover


Second attempt at painting cam cover


Old halo headlights and OEM front bumper


With the old KE55 down by the lake


Old halo headlights + FXGT front bar. If the halos weren't so pathetically weak, the wrong spread and horribly wired, I might have considered keeping them

And the thing that prevents me from spending money on the Corolla Very Happy

I'll consider coilovers once wedding is out of the way, I'm not going to go SuperLows because they are for show only and completely ruin the handling. I'm happy with how it sits now though, don't have to worry about scraping or bottoming out going into driveways/over speedhumps etc, which is important for a daily.

Definitely looking good, especially with that front end! But you can definitely lower it some and not have to worry about scraping or rubbing! when done properly...

Rubbing isn't the drama, it's scraping. The mudflaps already scrape on short sharp speed bumps (like you get in shopping centre car-parks) but they can at least be trimmed a little bit. The exhaust can scrape on the same kind of bumps too, and on driveways etc (the rear tip for uphill driveways, the resonator/cat-pipe for downhill ones)

Yeah, I know what you mean, those can definitely be a pain! I guess with mine, I figure no one will ever seen the underside of things, so I don't care if they get scratched lol. Although I really don't scratch on anything somehow.

Not worrying about cosmetics (the underside has copped a beating over the years, 360,000kms does that to a car), I'm more concerned about snapping an hanger off or scraping a hole in an exhaust pipe. If I get the mudguards trimmed down I can probably go another 20mm safely, but wouldn't want any more that's for sure.

Angles will only get you so far (and then only on some table-top speed humps)...most of my problems are short sharp humps and driveway gutters. The Soarer is 10 times worse though, much longer wheelbase and the cat pipe off the end of the turbo dumps is only about 2-3 inches off the ground (got to get that fixed)
