Default 1985 Corolla (AE80) project

My girl friend bought this last year. She now has a 02 Subaru Leagcy wagon.
I decided to sell my Buick and play with this Corolla.

1985
70,xxx
Tan w/ brown and chocolate interior
Auto
Sedan
No rust

Has exhaust leak and something going on with the carb

This will be just something to play with since I mostly ride my bike everywhere (sv650s)
I haven't seen anyone really do much to them so it will be a nice change of pace from the civic game.

Anyone have a good corolla site, aftermarket parts site or link to a write up. Let me know.

I'll post pics later.

I just stumbled across that site, Alot of good info there.

I haven't been to the track yet. I really wasn't aware I was so close to a track tell a co worker invited me. I knew there was one around but ive never been to a track in general. Ill have to check it out sometime. MIDNIGHT MADNESS or something like that.

The car is at the airport right now due to GF's sister took it to work and the carb is messed up so she just left it. Ill try and snap some picks later.

I thought so.... it looks like one of the best set up is a 7afe short block with 4agZe head. So pretty much 7a block with 4a supercharged head. Z=supercharged mr2. 7a block for 1.8 liter vs 1.6. Imguessing you. Have the fwd 1.6 liter. Which is around 80 hp to crank. 2jzgte will be moolah up the ass. Hell... just do 3sgte fwd swap. Will be a beast with 255 hp to crank factory. Easy to swap in. Need any help.... just pm me

20v, the block is basically the same as the motor you have now so a 20v will "basically" bolt in

ahhh my bad, I didn't even pay attention to what it was. I saw Levin and thought it was an 86 for a minute there. Didn't even know they made a fwd 4 door. makes me feel a lot better now
