    Default My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM)

    Hey guys,


    This is my 1993 Toyota Corolla SE Limited. It's a Japanese import and has all of the features you would expect out of Japan, except it's now a little different from a bog standard grocery getter


    It was completely standard when I bought it, but I've done a number of mods to it over the last 5-years of ownership so far, including a 4A-GE 20v Blacktop swap at the end of 2012. I've almost reached my goal of finding every single optional extra that was available from new, including some of the rarest items, such as the AirFantasy fragrance control system.


    This first post will remain updated with all of the current modifications and photos. To view updates in chronological order please scroll through the various posts below this one.


    The mods so far are:

    Engine:
    * 4A-GE 20v Blacktop engine conversion.

    I use a Canon EOS 450D DSLR (also known as the Rebel XSi in some countries). Yep, they're HDR shots. I use Photomatix Pro 3. Thanks for such an awesome comment! My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM) - 143

    Thanks for the compliment! I tried to keep the mods as subtle as possible, so that it didn't look too 'over the top'. I'm really pleased that you like it.

    Thanks mate. I think it's the best generation too, although my opinion is somewhat biased, haha. I originally wanted to get a GT model, but they're really hard to find, especially in 5-speed. The only current major differences between the GT model and my SE Limited model is the engine and rear brakes, which are easily transferable . Interestingly, the GT model doesn't have power folding mirrors for some reason. Maybe Toyota used their budget up on the engine and dual exhausts My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM) - 028

    Yeah I hope to do a Blacktop swap sometime. There are some cheap engines out there, but unfortunately the time and funds aren't available at the moment. It'll happen one day though . I'd be going for the C56 5-speed gearbox as opposed to the C60 6-speed, as it's a lot stronger and has better ratios. I'll be sure to post any new photos of the car in here My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM) - fing32

    Many thanks! The thing I love about owning an older car is that the parts are so much cheaper and there's not so much to go wrong with them. I'm glad a car like this would be your choice over a more modern car . Thanks again.
