Not a Corolla, sorta...... Prizm build in North Carolina Empty
PostSubject: Not a Corolla, sorta...... Prizm build in North Carolina   Not a Corolla, sorta...... Prizm build in North Carolina EmptyMon May 25, 2020 6:17 pm

What's up world?!?!  So I don't have a corolla anymore,  been looking around for a few years on and off.  I recently bought a Tacoma for $300, spent about $500 total including the purchase of the truck, sold it for it $3500 and found this Prizm for $250.  Reason it was so cheap,  4th and 5th gear were missing, basically not working.  So I picked up a verified 30K mile transmission for $300, bought a new clutch kit, flywheel, rear main and other gaskets to reseal the engine, new cv axles, new motor mounts, timing belt kit, with water pump and then I got new headlight assemblies, got all LED bulbs from Superbrightleds.com and put this car back together.  I did the rebuild in a couple of weekends,  one weekend to tear it apart, ordered parts, second weekend to put it all back together

the original plan was to take my time, clean up, shave and paint the engine bay, clean and paint the engine and transmission,  wire tuck and prep for a 7AGE conversion........  but since my main daily decided to blow the headgaskets,  I had to tear apart my car really quick and put it back together.  I will eventually go a turbo 7AGE engine, most likely 20valve too........

not my first time around Toyotas,  been playing with them since the 90s,  but here is the last AE101 I did.  a 94 Corolla with a NA 7AGE 16valve running on Microtech EFI back in the early 2000s'

Lol! Yeah, I was TE31Rolla back then, central Florida chapter member. That place got dead not long after I left the corolla game all together, but I'm having fun with the Prizm now and have some tricks up my sleeve

Glad you're having fun with the car! Must be neat having the "same" car again. I don't miss mine though, but it was kinda quick and zippy. CCC did die after something happened, I think there was some drama in Florida that split everyone up and then it was gone.

I hate to admit, I was apart of that drama. But, it's the past, just wish I was smarter about things back then that could have prevented alot of drama. Lesson learned, it's a wash and it's a new day. But yeah, driving the Prizm the last week almost 2, have been fun. The car definitely brings back alot of memories. lol. Can't wait to really tear into this, but I have to wait till I get my truck running and back on the road

Not a huge update,  between work and family life,  I haven't done much.  BUT!  I had a slow moment at work, doing my typical craigslist browsing and I see an ad for a estate auction,  I click on it and see a shit load of cars and tools along with house stuff and shop stuff as well.  The ad had a few MR2s a couple of FWD Corolla GTS' and a shit ton of classic cars, trucks, vans, etc........ anyways,  I'm there for the MR2s!  Lol.  So I walk in and I told my friend if I find a supercharged MR2, I'm gonna buy it.  He laughed and said I'm not that lucky, well,  I wish I would have made a bet, I walked in, I see the first row of MR2s,  first one I see is indeed a Supercharged MR2!  So after watching the first two MR2s get sold for $100 and $125,  the time came to the supercharged MR2,  they start the bid at $500, then dropped down to $100 and that's when I placed the bid, someone else jumped in and I was in a bidding war with him now grr  so back and forth a few times, I got the winning bid at $425!  More than what I originally wanted to spend, but still a steal at the same time.  Lol.  Oh and I did buy a second one for $125, so I can't complain, two MR2s for $550 plus 10% fees

So plans?  get the 4AGZE running,  once I know its running, has good compression, etc,  I'll remove it from the MR2, reseal the engine, clean it up, re-wire the harness and swap it into my Prizm.  It's definitely not gonna happen right away as I gotta get my Trucks engine rebuilt and running again,  then I can focus on the swap.  But between then and now,  I'll focus on getting the 4AGZE running and go from there



Parked away from everybody

thanks!  wish I could have bought more, but I got into the bidding war with the GZE car.  lol

In other news,  my short shifter and shifter bushings came in, now just need to finish up a customer car I have so I can use the space to get these installed.
