just wondering what engines do people usually put into the 1998 toyota starlet when looking for performance? like has anyone put a honda k20a motor in the starlet or a 3SGTE turbo engine into the starlet? also what is the name of the 1998 toyota starlet? ( like the 2nd gen mr2 is called SW20..)

thanks

'98 Starlet will be an EP91. Even just putting the 4EFTE turbo motor from the Jap-spec Glanza is a good upgrade, they were 3/4 of bugger-all. Cheap, simple, been done plenty of times before (since it was a factory option). There have been a couple of blacktop 20V conversions too, personally I wouldn't bother going all the way to a 3SGTE as, although it will give you strong numbers and plenty of aftermarket support, it's a big heavy engine sitting in the front of a quite tiny city hatchback.

K20A conversion will just end in pain

Just wondering how much does it cost to put the 4EFTE turbo motor from the Jap-spec Glanza into an EP91? like how much is the 4EFTE turbo motor and do you need to change gearboxes and how much it cost for labour to put the new engine in? also how many km's is the 4EFTE turbo motor usually have? also what should you look for when choosing a 4EFTE turbo motor?

also im looking to buy an EP91, just wondering what should i look out for when inspecting the car .. like what usually goes wrong with the EP91? also do you know any good places to do the 4EFTE turbo motor swap in sydney

also why do you say the k20a conversion will end in pain?

also just wondering how much more $ does it cost to do a 3SGTE conversion compared to the 4EFTE

also just wondering what are the disadvantages of having a "big heavy engine" in the "front of a quite tiny city hatchback"
