i have corolla 1982 SE 1.3 , with 4k engine and 4 forward gear box..i want suggestions from you that I can change the gear box with 5 forward gears or not..what are the drawbacks if i replace it..some one told me that your initial pick will reduced due to 5 forward gear box...
The japanese domestic SE edition corollas with the 4K-U engines came with 5 spd boxes, check the ID plate on the car - it should say K50 on it.
and it seriously helps with fuel economy at high speeds.
hmmmm.. OK it helps in fuel economy but what's about its initial pick??
its the same - no difference in first gear torque (pickup) - the 5th gear is just an overdrive gear.
ahaaan!!!! thanx dear!!!!
