I bought it from engine broker so I don’t know what exact car but would have been 1995-2000 Toyota Sprinter, Levin or Trueno (Japanese market) FWD. transmission is from mid 80’s AE86 Corolla RWD

Thanks.

I keep an eye out over here as I have the transmission already in.

I was thinking it was easier to have a whole car in order to get all the ECU etc.

So is it still a 4GE engine then and it is easy to turn back into a RWD.

Because the 20v is so popular in street racer conversions that use the mid 80s Toyota RWD Corolla platform there are several companies that make components to modify it from FWD configuration The one thing that is a challenge is the distributor comes straight out of the back of the engine which in the Morris would put it right into the firewall. There is a conversion to get rid of the distributor cap and wires that just makes the existing distributor base a pick up sensor and use coil packs for the firing. The original motor did come with the ECU but it made more sense to go with an aftermarket ECU wiring harness that was configured more to my application and programmable.
One of the main reasons for the selection of this drivetrain is I am building this car for my wife and she’s not too keen on manual shift so I had to find an engine that would work well with an existing rear wheel drive automatic box. The mid 80s corolla transmission was the perfect choice

Nice looking work there and a good engine choice. The 4AGE is a good fit in a Morris Minor.
