Was looking to install a 93 7afe engine into my 69 corona rt43. was wondering what options do I have for manual transmissions to go behind this engine. Also how much of the wire harness do I need??? Any body done a swap like this?????

Other than there is a wreck car with engine at my work (wrecking yard), and the parts are cheap. You have a better idea, that is wallet friendly?

Just about any R-series engine.

Any RZ-series engine.

Even a T-series would be better than the *A-F

Since it's a descendant of the 3AC/4AC/4AGE engine, you can buy it and hope like hell an older Corolla RWD 5spd will bolt up. :tu:

I can't swear the bellhousing bolt pattern is the same, but there's a reasonable chance it is.

From the donor car, you'd want pretty much all of it. And the air flow meter, ECU, relays, fusebox, etc. No telling how much you'll end up using, but you want to start with as much as you can.

Doubtful. That's a lot of work for very little gain. We're talking about a 1.8L 115hp engine after all.

Done the "right" way, I'd say you can expect to spend $2000+ by the time it's in and sorted.

It will be smoother and more reliable than the stock engine, just don't expect it to be a lot faster. :wink:

I would say find a 22R, they are everywhere. Even though they are not mountains of power you will get better performance from wrenching on one of those than a 7A. In the long run a 7A is just really not worth it, not at all. They are also RWD so finding trannys is no problem. You can find different carb kits for them all day long and you r won't have to jack with converting your car to fuel injection. If you really really want fuel injection, I would suggest a 3RZ. Fairly easy to find, RWD, 2.7 liter and about 165 horsepower stock.

Yep, a 22R is the way to go, for carbed reliability or if you want fuel injection... you can go for its FI counterpart.. the 22RE. :wink: :tu: :tu:

7AFE is by far more efficient then a R series. Look into a 7AGE swap. It's been done enough in the AE86 world that finding a write up on a site like club4ag.com or Hachiroku.net or the good old standby google should be easy. I believe any T50 with a 4A bell housing will bolt up just fine. The only down side of the 7AFE is the intake faces the wrong way and I'm pretty sure the distributor will be interfering with the fire wall when installed in a RWD application.

Maybe economy wise. Not availability of ease or parts wise. Then the cost isn't really worth it. When you can find any old Yota pickup at the scrap yard and snatch you up a low mileage 22R or RE. :?
