2E-TE engine supplier?
This is a strange question, but does anyone know of a place that might be able to source a 2E turbo? I've been looking around for a few months and the only solution I can find is to buy a whole starlet and then remove the engine. I think it would be a waste to scrap such a rare car just for the engine, so was wondering if anyone knows of a shop that keeps a few 2E turbos in stock.

I'm going to guess that no one around here will know of one, but its worth asking.

2E-TELU's are hard to find overhere, there might be some in Malaysia or Thailand, but they are getting very rare right now.

Why a 2E-TELU? 4E-FTE are easier to find, straight swap in and more power off the bat.

I wasn't going to admit to this just yet, but I might have acquired an ee82. I figured that since the car came with a 2E, the easiest way to get big power would be a 2E turbo swap.
Now that you mention it, maybe other engine swaps are easier. Perhaps another 4age from an AE92, but I figured that a 2E might be cheaper and the car would still be registered as a 1.3 instead of a 1.6

If the 4E will drop right in then I suppose it might be an option, but I haven't seen that swap done with an EE82 before.

Also, this caught my attention:

4age in an ee82 will be harder then any e series engine, as the T-belt side engine mount won't fit without a welder.

4e will drop straight in if you take the 2e engine mounts. 135 hp as standard for a 4efte vs 105 for the 2e-telu.
with limited upgrades 170-180 hp is doable. More then that means forged engine, but then the sky really is the limit. I've seen upwards of 350 hp from one.

Important is to get a decent exhaust manifold, as the stock one is restrictive on the no3 cilinder, it will melt the piston on high speed runs.

Thanks for the help dude. I think a 2E swap is off the table now, I honestly thought the engine would be easier to find than it is. I haven't had any trouble finding 4Es for sale and I wasn't aware it was such a straightforward swap until now.

350HP from a 1.3 though? The car isn't exactly slow with the original engine, so 350hp must be undrivable.

I've driven a 180 hp Starlet Ep71, and that was quite a handfull, especially in damp conditions. I don't want to think about driving one with twice the hp! Smile
