HI guys,

 

First time posting, just wondering if you guys could clear up a few questions I have, in converting a ep91 5 speed starlet and putting the paseo 1.5L engine in to it.

 

Question 1:

Is the engine loom in the starlet the same as the loom in the Paseo or will I need the Paseo loom?

 

Question 2:

 

The starlet is currently a 5 speed manual the Paseo donor car I have is an automatic, will the Paseo ecu run if I keep the manual transmission? 

 

Question 3:

Will the 5 speed starlet box bolt straight onto the Paseo engine? 

 

And are there any other modifications I need to do? 

Or any other info that would help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Ben,

I don't know about the wiring loom of EP91 Starlet and Paseo, but I did put a 4EFTE into my Toyota Sera which originally has a 5EFHE engine.
You're going the other way from 4E to 5E :)

So gearboxes should bolt up just fine.

However, I have to have a manual ECU because the auto in Turbo Starlets is electronically controlled by the ECU and my mechanical gearbox won't return the correct signals.

I think you'll need to find out if the Paseo donor has an electronically controlled auto box, or mechanical. Sadly, I don't know the difference except the wiring & ECU. So maybe that will be some help - auto ECU from Turbo starlet has 3 plugs, manual has 2. If your ECU's are both the 2 plug variety, you're probably safe.

Good luck & have fun :)

      I've  just bought my first car being a 1976 Celica Ta23 and being completely new to car restorations/rebuilds, I'm in great need for good car advice. Only being 15, I would really appreciate some help on what are some of the best options for engine swaps as the current motor has clocked over 800,000kms. I'm looking for something newer that's more efficient and performs better but still being a 1.6L-2.0L four cylinder engine, that doesnt require too much heartache in installing. I would also love some advice on whats involved in doing such swaps in regards what extra parts/changes etc required. So far I've been researching 4age and sr20det engines but am lacking a good insight into what is the best option for me regarding my current circumstances.

      Hi!
      Is the oil residual on the engine cap (photo is attached) a warning on the condition of the engine?
      Also, when starting the engine, light white smoke comes out of the exhust, but it goes away after around 15 minutes.
      Thanks!
