corona conversion

Recommended Posts

hey guys,

 

I am currently gathering stuff together to do a full over haul on my old corona.

 

I have looked into different options and have come down to the engine combination being the part that has stumped me.

 

after looking through this:

 

http://www.infrastructure.gov.au/roads/vehicle_regulation/bulletin/pdf/NCOP3_Section_LA_Engine_01jan2011_v3.pdf

 

keeping in mind, the car currently runs a missfire with a 3 speed auto

weights in at 1060

1060x4=~~ 4 ltr NA

1060x4=~~ 3 ltr turbo

 

while keeping this car street legal, I don't want to own another turbo car, my s14 has been too much of a headache.

 

my question is, I have contemplated the 1uz (sticking with the toyota family) however, while wanting to also keep it retro i guess, I want to run individual carbys as well as extractors etc. does any one know, if this would even be legal, I know the engine would be, due to being the 4ltr NA however, more so retro fitting carbys to a fuel injected engine.

 

the other option, 13b, but I just think that it wouldn't provide the requirements I have.

 

any help would be awesome, or even an idea on a better engine of choice that I could think about.

Im currently in the process of doing the same thing , I did my research , and have gone with a SR20 with silvia engine mounts as they fit straigh up . instead of going with a standard turbo , i looked into other inductions , so Im now going to run a SR20 with a sc14 super chager wth clutch drive , this way when I want i I can use it and whenits not needed I dont have to , the price was really good at 275 , so it allowed it to be a reasonable option . The SR20 also bolts up to the toyota gearbox , but you may want to look at the steel case for strength as from memory the other wont hold up to long .

 

 

Also with the SR Conversion you will need custom gearbox mounts and tail shaft

Hope this helps

 

Ive opted for ST141 Wagon , SR20 with super charger , 1 and half inch lower with modified holden springs and larger sway bars

215 rear with changed offset on standard steel rims and hub caps and 205 front , the car has louvers in the rear wich I plan to keep

as for paint Just Alpine White and window tint :

and have sourced a 2 and half inch super quiet exhaust as well wich will dump just behind the rear bumper with a piece of standard pipe welded to come out the rear smile.png

yeah Im serious , The SR20 produces more torque than the 2 ltre that is standard with the ST141 , I had a budget of 3500 because since havng a bad knee injury Im not working and it was money from selling my boat , this was nothing more than a time filler doing the corona as a bit of a stock daily for me

 

The SC14 super charger produces 10 psi with out hassle and is suited for 1.6 to 2 litre applications , it will work quiet well with a switch located on the throttle body so only works when heavy throttle is used , these sc14's are a commonly use on v6's and seem to work quit well .

 

as for the sr20 bolting to the toyota box is common place I think the W85 toyota box is a perfect match ( will need to double check I think ) ,if the nissan 5 sp is used then custom gearbox mounts will need to be used along with a custom tail shaft and I dont have that budget .

 

Im not building a drifter or monster street car ,with the way the new rules are going ,you will need to undo alot of mods on street cars to get them registered . Im just bilding a little fun daily .

 

If I have done or said some thing you disagree with , then with your knowledge simply put foward your ideas , but no need to belittle some one based on there ideas and budget .

This forum is for those with experience and those who dont and we are all equal , no one is better than any one else , there will be some thing one person knows and the other doesnt and visa versa

I would be surprised if a w58 bolted straight up to a sr20. I haven't heard of it before but I don't know any better either way,
