What about the Isuzu 4FB1 or 4FC1? Those are also good option for the Corolla

Just an update I used WD-40 on my engine and lubricated and sprayed on the following parts:

1. alternator
2. water pump pulley
3. a/c compressor
4. tensioner bearing
5. main crankshaft

I also sprayed the internal of my contact point type distributor and the ends of my high tension wires and sparkplug ends with WD-40 and results were remarkable, my engine is now running smoother and more quiet, and even with all of my accessories open (e.g. lights, a/c, radio, etc.) the RPM does not drop that too low.

also, I just finished doing a DIY installation of customized cold air intake, I hope it performs well tomorrow


BTW can you guys suggest a design for a hypermiling sticker that I can put on my rear glass? i'm planning to put one soon...

In general, on this site, you'll find testing showing warm air intakes a benefit (or no change) to FE. In general cold air intake systems are understood to improve power modestly and reduce FE a little.

Get the "ecomodder.com" sticker by donating to the EM site (or just buying one)... promote the community!

I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

good day! thanks for the reply, I already tried a warm air intake on my SOHC 1,3 Carb engine and I ended up stepping up the gas more often due to lack of power, so I'm still going to try out this one, I'll update soon
