Is that the 1331cc twin cam fuel injected.
5 speed box I presume.
About 88 bhp.
If it all works out I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to move on to the turbo version.(130 bhp).

There is a limit on the size of attachments but the quality is still good enough if you resize them. I usually open them in paint, crop the picture and save as a jpeg.

Good man Geoffrey,

I had a '99 1.3 Starlet a few years ago and it's a lively car with a sweet gearbox.

Keep the updates coming,

Billy

If you can find a jap import 4efe engine and its ecu they are 100bhp. Look for pink fuel injectors. 1500's are hard got nowadays. 6spd Corolla box has a name for being soft, I'd stick with standard 5 spd. Starlet GT turbo box, alloy end cover and 8 bolt diff, has a longer 1st gear and can also take Torsen type lsd out of 6spd Levin gearbox.
Looking forward to the build !
