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 :)

      Hey guys!
      I own a 2001 Toyota Prado Grande petrol auto. Always serviced on time and well taken care of.
      Lately its been running a little rich. Long trips I've noticed it using more fuel than normal. Also, it has developed a little flat spot when pulling up to a round about or something and going to take off again, its seems to have a little miss. To top it off, if i was to put my foot down, it feels like its not getting enough fuel or air as it doesn't use all its power but then feels like that frees up somewhere in the rev range. Most wouldn't notice it but after driving it daily its clear it has an issue.
      No codes have scanned up ad I've had it into 2 workshops now trying to find the fault. Plugs are new and aren't fowled and both workshops have scratched their heads as to what may be causing the problem. Injectors are also fine.
      Any and all help greatly appreciated.

      This question has probably been asked time and time again. I have a 92 single cab hilux that is raised it is also 4x4. Currently has a 2.4  diesel engine. I want to change it out for something with more go. Was looking at the lexus v8, any thoughts?  My main worries are: 
      -would I lose the 4x4? 
      -fuel consumption 
      -would I need to change the prop shafts and diff to handle the new engine. 
       
      Any help would be appreciated, thanks guys.
