    Sky is the limit when you want to swap an engine in an old Corolla. What is your requirement? Extreme power, economy?

    How much power? How many cylinders? Displacement? Fuel economy target?

    No Toyota swapped engine will give you 12km/litre for sure .
    However only if you swap a 1nz than it can reach a bot near to your target .
    But fitting a FWD engine in RWD demands more money and efforts .
    So it's better to stick with your K series engine .
    They lasts and lasts forever .

    A healthy 4k will give you 12km/l. So why swap?
    But the question is, will it do a burnout?

    My thoughts too. A properly tuned one will do even slightly better.

    Default engine swap in 1978 corolla

    One can get most out of 4K still if he wish . (Though most KE30 in Pak equipped with 3K)
    Just put a decent 3K head on a nice 4K motor ,a better breathing option , a decent set of carb, Headers , A better ignition set up ,
    And here you go

    And do remember among 90% of power steering conversions in Pakistan it resulted in un even front tyre wear due to not using the exact dimensions .
    So it will be more recommend if you can opt a EPS instead by a well qualified and experienced guy as never ever compromise on car steering assy as its one of the most vital part in car safety .

    Happy motoring
