    Default the 1988 COROLLA GTS PROJECT ! :)

    Hey guys, my cousin just purchased this corolla with a dead engine in it. We will be replacing the engine with a 20V silvertop(lol silvertop craze every where). The car seems to be in good condition but is missing its original powersteering lines, the bottle and its A/C compressor. Im wondering if this car had power steering in the first place. We have disconnected the entire engine, Inshallah will be lifting it today. Lets see, im sure there shall be many problems which will require the attention of some cheetah 20V experts here ... am attaching pics of the entire project, which is currently under construction.

    The 20V costed $1000 shipped with Ecu,wiring and 5 Speed M/T transmission. Car costed $900 shipped.

    Would appreciate your advice on how to proceed with the powersteering (will be going to junkyard i presume to get a second hand one).

    Enjoy the pics !

    The last pic is an added bonus for ya guys

    Thank you all very much...i really admire the car too...looks really sexy...Levin, cousin is planning to change the timing belt (atleast i shall insist on it) and might install a stage 1 clutch too...there are two pipes which he is not sure of, i shall be taking pics and posting em here.

    your advice is needed on how to proceed with regards to the missing power steering mechanism ( the 20V just comes with the hydraulic pump, and no piping)

    yes we shall definately be cleaning the engine bay...why dont we have such corollas in pakistan?, strange haan

    @hash4u

    I think he meant the same shape as the one he has, not the 20v conversion.

    u cannot bolt on fuel pump and connect pipes.. just like that,, you need to go buy a set of pipes, i had a mechanic running around doing all these little things but if doing oneself, you have to measure and buy.
