Default Performance upgrades for a 1.3 Corolla..

Well... this is a shame. I have a 1.3 Carburetor 1993 Corolla... -.-" It's going to take awhile to get a 1.6 AE101 Engine (Also a corolla from the same year)

I was wondering... Is there any good performance upgrades for the car? Cheap and Expensive ones...

Want a pic of the engine bay/engine. Or just a particular area? Just give me a holla and i will get a pic up as soon as i can.

1993 carburetor? wat?

To answer your question, you can't make a 1.3L fast without boost.

Performance and 1.3L I4s should never be in the same sentence. Just saying. Refer to my sig.

I'm sorry, and I don't like to hate on any car company or make in general, but "You know you own a corolla when you are excited to swap up to a 1.6"

:P

I own a 91" Lancer GTi With a 1.6 Fuel Injected Engine, and it also has an on-board computer. Helluva lot better than the Corolla.

And a 05" Civic VTi.

I didn't intend that to refer to you as an owner, just that it was funny. The AE86 corolla has a 1.6 and is on my short list of vehicles for my collection.

Then why do you want to make the 1.3L faster?

Cause all of my other cars are all stock, and i want to keep it that way.

And the Toyota is modified, re-painted bright green, 17 Inch Concept One Wheels, Nitto Neo-Gen Tires, Custom Leather Seat, (installed soon) Sound setup, (Soon to come) Underglow and what not, And... a HID Headlight conversion..

Some i can't remember... -.-"

so, it sounds like your ricin it out. stick a muffler on it and your good to go!


but in all honesty the only way to really go would be like previously mentioned, a turbo. and for that size motor not just a little boost, but quite a bit for a huge difference.

best bet would be a swap. also, pics of the entire car?
