    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.

    Thanks man


    I fitted some facelift tail lights today....again. I think this is the 3rd time I've fitted a set and then changed my mind a few days later and gone back to the pre-facelift orange/red set, but this time I think I'm going to stick with them. Not sure what's changed but I really like how the facelift set makes the car look a lot more modern, so they're likely here to stay

    It's been such a long time since this thread was started and I'm surprised even today it inspires me to want to rush out and buy an AE100, IA this will be my next ride, and this sir, I can say for myself, is the best AE100 I have ever seen

    Thanks a lot for the kind words guys . I'm happy to say that the facelift tail lights are still fitted and I have no plans to remove them


    I decided to splash out and buy this genuine TRD oil cap today. It was something I had been wanting for a while but couldn't justify spending the money on since all it really does compared to the stock one is sit there looking pretty, but now that I finally have the engine bay looking the way I wanted I figured that the cap would be a nice finishing touch

    I bought a small external microphone for my camera a few weeks ago, purely so I can record the sound of the trumpets by placing the microphone under the hood, and today I decided to make a quick video to test it out. It definitely sounds better than previous in-car footage I've taken with the camera's built-in mic, but it's quite a cheap/budget product so I may look at investing in a better quality microphone so it can capture the true sound the trumpets make during full acceleration, but for now this will do

    Wow, thanks for taking the time to re-read the whole thread! . Great to hear that you're also an AE100 owner. Looking forward to seeing what mods you do to yours and am glad that mine has provided some inspiration . Can definitely help with parts if you need them


    I came across some info online a couple of weeks ago about a few different people in Malaysia using a 6-speed ECU with their 5-speed Blacktops and noticing a slight increase in power/response, so when I stumbled across a 6-speed Blacktop ECU a few days ago for a good price I decided to test it out for myself.


    The 6-speed ECU is meant to have better fuel mapping, better engine response, a raised rev limiter and a safety function which makes the engine idle up for a second when changing up or down a gear at a certain rpm, which helps to protect the 6-speed's synchro's and reduces driveline lash.


    I swapped the ECU over today but before doing so took my car for a drive with the 5-speed ECU still fitted to see what my current rev limiter was before the engine would valve bounce. In 1st gear it was about 8,300rpm and in 2nd and 3rd gear it was 8,250rpm. After I installed the 6-speed ECU and went for a decent drive I tried it again and noticed that in all the gears I tested (1st, 2nd and 3rd) the rev limiter was now 8,500rpm. Prior to the swap I had heard that the 6-speed ECU would hit the limiter at 7,800rpm in 1st gear, but this wasn't the case in my experience (bearing in mind that I am however running the 5-speed C56 transmission).


    The engine response does seem slightly quicker but nothing mind blowing, however the slightly increased rev limiter comes in handy when changing gear at high rpm as every little bit helps to keep it within the power band after shifting. The 6-speed ECU is also meant to be a bit more economical on fuel but I haven't been able to test that as of yet.


    All in all it does have it's advantages over the 5-speed ECU and for the price I paid it was certainly worth it


    These are some photos I took before the swap, with the 5-speed ECU on the left and the 6-speed ECU on the right:

    well let me tell u what happened yesterday! my friend at college who literally has 20 cars MashaAllah happens to own a ae100 with b.t swap running on ITBs and 6 speed manual with quite lots of work done like light flywheel shaved head and the results are good increased compression = more power overall
    he had quite add ons like bucket seats, and a Greedy free flow exaust
    well the thing is he wanted to turn his car back to stock as he wanted either sell it or use it as a family car ( just because he got his r33 and a 2jz supra last month ) so he offered me the REAL DEAl.
    he said i can exchange the setup, stock springs with his lowering springs, stock meter with his gt meter, similarly the front bumper lights and the grill even the 17" wheels are included in the offer,all this for free just exchange!!! to be honest i couldnt even sleep after this offer but there is just this problem, the car belonged to my father he died 2 months ago, i just dont know what to do its a family car and i dont want to swap the engine yet rest i can manage, i want the blacktop setup for my charade currently with 5efe setup (needs new ring set and i want to swap a 2ov) but he says he wants the 5afe auto for exchange not the 5efe manual
    its just the dream come true offer but me not wanting to mess with the setup of ae100 a.t.m is getting in the way i dont know what to do

    WOW! That sounds like an offer you can't refuse!!! . I'm very sorry to hear of your father's passing. It must be a tough decision deciding what to do considering it was his car, but regardless of what you do his legacy will still live on, so I say go for it! An offer like that would probably only come around once in a lifetime so you'd hate to regret not taking it in years to come. Swapping the 20v into the Corolla would be the best idea, then perhaps find another 20v for your Charade later on. If it were me I'd take your friend up on the offer and turn it into something that would make your dad proud

    Thanks guys!!

    I added another rare optional extra to my collection today when I happened to come across an OEM factory option rubber moulded trunk organizer. I've seen this shown in the sales brochures but this is the first one I've ever seen in real-life. It is shaped perfectly for the sedan's trunk and has 3 separate partitions to ensure items don't slide around during transit, plus since it's made of rubber it's a breeze to clean

    It's been a while since I've taken a photo of my car so here's a random shot I took today:

    I completed my brake set-up today by installing some braided brake lines. They're made by a company in Australia called Safebrake and are a direct replacement for the factory rubber brake lines. I originally ordered a set of Goodridge braided lines from the US but when they arrived they were for the rear drum brake model, and unfortunately Goodridge don't cater to models outside of the US so there was no rear disc brake version available.


    After a bit of research I found these Safebrake lines and got them sent over last week. The quality is superb and they meet/exceed all the necessary legal requirements. During my test drive after the install I noticed that the brakes were much more responsive when I stepped on the pedal. There's no lag or hesitation when braking any more, so I feel as though I can brake later and more aggressively if needs be. Definitely an improvement over the rubber brake lines, and one more thing to get added to my certification plate in the near future
