    if you have budget ready for it,, wait for a while (maybe a few days) till toyota authorities join back in forum, will guide you accordingly. meanwhile racerf may give you some ideas if they dont over yr head..lol,, the only problem is racerf is not in this country.

    @civic99
    interesting name and you have a corolla, lol! Sorry could not help it!
    Ok as for turbo, you can even turbocharge a lawn mower if you have to cash. Few questions:
    What is it that you have in your mind as for the purpose for the extra power?
    how much extra power are you looking for, like beating civic or a RX7?
    what is your budget and time period?

    levin has given you good info. regarding a turbo for your 1.6gli actually looking at it that is a very good price for that sort of kit.

    @levin

    asking again what kind of power yr looking for, if you read the article,link you have an idea 4afe block is not a strong block to handle turbo power. 7afe is stronger block than that, but that means changing engine. i wont recomended high psi boost on stock 4afe, because soon you will have NO engine. so i f you wanna keep that car and put power in it, simply go for 4age20v. or 4agze16v. estimated cost: 1 lakh above to 2 lakhs.

    if you wanna play with big boys cars,, your 4afe engine will not help. simple. turbo or no turbo.

    or convert it on CNG,
    it will behave like a turbo working in the opposite directing

    today i drove a 4afe16v, runs smooth. at least you dont feel like yr sitting behind a tractor engine where a minor touch on padel and you get a jerk that spills yr coffee and hard to keep stable at low speed, where as 4age20v, mostly you keep clutch pressed at slow speed, i had to practice a few days how to drive a 20v slow and stable.
