Mostly correct, but the TVIS engine is the large port engine. It makes 124bhp according to Toyota at the time. I dynoed a car a few years ago, come out as 124bhp once losses were taken into account, but only something like 110bhp at the rear wheels

You can only tell for shure once the intake manifold is off. A functioning TVIS manifold has no purpose on the smallport, but there could be a big-smallport adaptor in place which would be hard to notice from a picture.

Apolan you would prolly have a Standard 87-90 4age tvis model and then they would have the tvis from the AE86 with it to make the line with the airbox.

AFM is airflow meter this is a big ugly bastard which is in front of the air filter.

MAP is a small box see pic below.. its on the wireloom


The red circle is the MAP sensor. Don't be blind on the power output remember that non rebuild engines are 20 years old meaning everything is less than factory if you have between 95-105pk on the wheels than your good.

Rebuild the car you got the best project if rust is already away you have the fun stuff to do wish i had same oppertunity.

Have fun with it and start building bitch :-)

Trust me, you dont want to be where i am with my 86. I have it but i cant drive it coz its still in parts, and i still dont have a propper place, where i could build her. its nerve wrecking!

therez another thing about the engine... it has not been running since 5 years ago! the previous owner said that he wrench-turned the engine and it was easy to turn, and all looked ok. but still! 5 years not running and only some little oil is in.. i took a little look under the cam cover, smells alright =) no burnt stuff; but the water/coolant pipe was a bit mudy in the beggining of pipe (the little adapter where you connect the water hose to). is that baD?

so how do i handle the engine and transmison now? do i break it in slowly with mineral based oil, or what?

My engine was not running for 2 years, and at the first time, I put in it a good batery, and rev for some times without spark plugs ( first change oil - mineral, better for first time and don't forget to drain oil from the oil radiator as well ) Change timing belt, and tensioner also. When you reving, chek oil pressure. Than put in spark plugs, and try to run. Chek at gasoline filter do you have petrol.
When you engine run, don't push gas pedal, let it run slowely to get working temperature. Turn it off and leave to calm down.
Do this for several times, yust run her, and leve it to work at place.
Change oil in gearbox, 2 litres, and in LSD, about 1.5-1.8 litres.
Don't mix bolts on gearbox and LSD.
When you go for first ride, don't push it, just a easy ride.
Also change distributor cap, and distributor.

My engine did not run for about 1.5 years when I put it in, I only put fresh seals in, and a new timing belt. I suggest checking if the waterpump turns smoothly, if it doesnt, replace it.
Anyway, I had it put in with fresh oil and just drove the thing. You'll be flushing rust out of the coolant for a while, but other than that I've had no problems. Keep an eye on the oil pressure when running the engine at idle.

Man you got yourself a biiig challenge there.... I took my car apart 4 years ago and I have sometimes a very hard time to find out what parts ( and especially bolts) go where, now here you didnt even take it apart yourself... !! good luck with your puzzle...
