Nice, but the tire spinning can be done without turbo, all you need is a stick.

Sounds awsome!!!

Thats nothing, Having a manual alone you can do that. The intercooler is placed extremley funny and does not look near big enough either. Look up the pic on my page

and how long will it hold? yea....

theres a shop in Omaha doing a build up of a 1nzfe, and they cant stop snapping rods due to the design of the motor. theyll get stuff to run for a month, and then it starts going downhill. the engine is designed for economy, not performance. and when i say the engine is designed, im talkin about the actual geometry inside the engine.

if anyone is going to be spending that kinda cash on a turbo kit for an engine that will blow quite frequently i assume, then just do the 4age swap and be done with it.

mad props to them for getting that xB to that kinda power number. ill retract my statements and apologize if they can make a bolt on kit that does those numbers and doesnt break engines. only time will tell. but hey what do i know, im just some noob here anyway.

From what they have said they have 3000 miles on the motor running at 8psi with that hp.
I obviously can't attest to that since I don't have one, it's just what they've posted.

4age eh. too old. and 4age is only good if it's dual charger and dual charged 4age will no where near easily fit in an xb.

1zzfe with trd supercharger for the win!!!!

eh i dont have to worry about carb or any of that crap with motor swaps and age. (no pun intended) id build up a 4age considering theyre cheap as hell, and swap that in. it would be a lot better power than boosting IMHO. (the 1nzfe that is)

they are also in 88-92 ae92 corolla gts's. and were in jdm cars up until the mid 90's but those were 20 valve motors. more technically advanced vvti in a few of em if I remember correctly too.
