is it stock or modified?.. modified cars have diffirent weight/hp ratio power than stock cars.
corolla ae-101 known in pakistan as ee-100 is produced in many countries, ,in Pakistan came out in 3 diffirent models seperated by engine class. 2c/4afe/2e. corolla was also manufactured in other countries as 5 door/3 door model. for example corolla was also introduced as corolla fx with 4age engine in certain part of world and 2 door model as 4age20v aka ST and later BT. these cars were manufactured after 4agze (supercharged series). toyota decided to name as Bz-r and later GT apex the 2 door corolla known as levin in certain part of world where as treuno name was used elsewhere. As its one of the largest production car in the world, diffirent names were given to models to define world market plus toyota management also likes to name cars in a particular fashion.
Ok in pakistan, you had various models xe, xe-g, gl, gli1.6l gli1.6auto 2.0d and 2.0d limited.
now as you see so many various models in above statement do you think they all have same car weight or engine power?. no.
do they share more or less same chassis design?. yes. if all are 4 door chassis design the diffirences are coming from added features like power windows seats uphostery etc.
yes another diffirence is engine setup.
a 1.3l carburator /1.6l efi/ and 2l deisel. the brakes were same as not a massive diffirence in hp so bhp is same. suspension setup diffirent as engine weight is diffirent plus gli 1.6l has less ground clearance. car weights are diffirent yes. why? because mainly engine is diffirent 1.3l is light weight around 92kg approx or little more 1.6l heavier and so on. so the main question is what happens when you put a 4age20valve engine in this car, the car weight goes heavier or remains same? the 20v is rated at 155kg. so we are adding more weight, meaning better traction to front tires. so given a xe and when i change engine the car is not rated as xe weight but now it will be heavier car. lets compare chassis weight of 2 door levin 96 to 4 door xe. given the fact engine remains same in both. how much diffirence can you judge out in chassis weight, if you bring out point gt-s/ gt apex had more metal on the floor panel of passenger compartment will add a few kg to levin bz-r where as pakistan made xe might be less quality steel/metal. the question is how much diffirence? can it be balanced out by fact we all know 4 door car is heavier than 2 door model and stationwagon is the heaviest model. if japanese can put 4age in 5 door corolla fx did they make a mistake?. that car does not have stock car weight?. if i put 4age in 4 door corolla xe, then this car does not have stock car weight?. if minor diffirence is car weight is playing so much diffirence then what about driver's body weight? donest that have any role in total weight of car?. i am 125lbs/clothed, compared to another car driver who is heavier than me, seated in cars our cars will have diffirent weight. yes? or no? so can you prove with same precise weight/hp calculation that putting a 4age20v in corolla xe , car is not stock anymore? where as half the world is already satisfied with this swap, further changing brakes to 4wdisc/ suspension for grd clearance etc. as you change engine, so many engine related parts get changed so yr car goes way heavier than what it was. so how correct is your analysis that car weight is same?. prove it! by facts.
secondly, if you are changing rim /size for actual 15" to 17" yr car is supposed to be slower not faster now that is a given fact.
