4 cyl turbo in Corona Wed, 08 September 2004 06:51 Go to next message
What (if any) Stock 4 cyl Turbos can you chuck into a XT130?

I know you can put a 1G with turbo in it or an 18R (and then turbo it at great expense) but was wondering if there was a middle ground.

3SGTE is the only worthwhile one and it's a dog of a job.

A 1GGTE is probably your 'easiest' Toyota bet, although 6 cyl means length may be a slight issue.

I would recommend a CA18 as a budget upgrade and they can certainly be made to get up and go... SR20 is another good one. FJ is old and tired...

Absolutely! You can have a mid 90's SR20 fairly cheaply... while you'll pay similar money for a twenty-year-old FJ20. You are likely to get a much fresher motor and the myriad of performance parts out there makes it by far the better choice.

Sure, the FJ is a good motor and I don't deny that.. but if you gave me a choice between a 10yo motor and 20yo motor, both with good performance potential, I know which one I'd buy.

If you want a RWD 4-cylinder turbo with a Toyota badge, there's really only one option: the 3T-GTE. They're getting a bit long in the tooth but they can make good power with a few sensible mods. I don't imagine it would be hard shoehorning one into the engine bay of an XT130.

im currently in the process of putting a turbo 18rgeu into my xt130 rona. Its prolly the easiest thing to do due to no mods are needed except building the turbo engine. And so far mine will end up costing no where near the price of a 1ggte or anything like that

here is a fairly recent pic of my xt130 engine bay.
http://pic15.picturetrail.com/VOL568/2504442/5048650/65208599.jpg

As was mentioned, 6 cylinder is fairly long but it does fit. Just have to get rid of the normal fan and fit thermos. Mine uses jzx90 chaser x-member and mounts that come in the front cut. Personally, if you want something a bit cheaper, I would go the 1g-gte. Then again, I really do prefer 6's over 4's and definitely straight 6's! Smile

Thanx for all the replies.

The reason I don't want to go for a 6 is that This will be a road car. And I'm not sure how easy it will be to re-register (unless I use my dodgy mates in Hurstville).

Does anyone know how much the SR20 and the 3T-GTE/3S-GTE cost? and where abouts I would source one out in Sydney?

Also as a side has someone really turbo'd a 1x? I sure as hell wouldn't, but really?

That is Vic right? Don't know about the rules down there but up here mine is all legal. car supposably weighs 1060kgs and engine is 2.5L twin turbo so that passes. Best to check with an engineer in your state to see what is legal.

Considering some Jap 'ronas came with 3TGTEs stock, I wouldn't imagine it would be any problem at all (unless an xT130 is an earlier smaller 'rona than the early 80s square ones)

Yeah but they also came with better suspension and LSD Diffs, so you cant just drop one in and hope it will work you need to spend the cash on prepping the rest of the car for the motor.

It would be cheaper to buy an import!

I never said you would be able to drop it in and do no other work - was just responding to Norbie's post.

It was the next generation Corona (ie TT142) that came with the 3T-GTE. Putting one in an XT130 would be a custom job, same as everything else.

Yeah I had one of these Coronas ages ago.... with the holden starfire motor... we used to call it the Corana to pay homage to the motors holden heretige. Wink Anyway from what i can remember a 3tgte will fit nicely... I im pretty sure the w55 will fit under the tranny tunnel as well... Although the 3t is getting old it can make good power and it did come in the next model corona so gettin it registered shouldnt be too much of a drama...

okay, so I get that this will be a custom job and a half, but any ideas on cost for the engine and gearbox? and what other expense would there be?

some rough estimates would even be appreciated.

Why not work the starfire 4?
It's stong, reliable, so good are the rods they
used them in turbo holden 6's. With the 120kw stock,
free revving torque monster 1.9 litre (why put in a smaller 1.8L 3t?), why wouldn't you want to stick with the starfire!
I honestly don't know why there is a need to modify such a
top 'donk.
