Great adventure start with a great journey. This happen to this little red KE30 rolla belong to our fella friend from Segamat, Johor.
A discussion back and froth took place somewhere at the end of 2014. Mostly the discussion involved in owner need to understand the steps and process of the conversation from stock KE30 3K engine to 4AGE engine, that going to happen including his own budget. Out of sudden, boom! We have a 4AGE engine complete with all the wiring, parts, and document up for sale for just RM3k! It is like having a new complete 4A engine that is ready to be PnP to his beloved rolla’s.
The plan is to take out the stock 3K 1.3cc Corolla Engine and put in the more upgrade cc of 4AGE with 1.6cc engine. At first, we are not sure how to go about it as we never done the actual transplant onto this earlier model before the KE70 series. Since that we have help him bought the 4A engine, he insist of the transplant job is done by us.
In to the hall way under the old rusted canopy, we start off the project by clearing the front grill, radiator, etc. This is to make way for the stock engine to be taken out.
Clearing up the engine bay was fun. Everything seem to stay intact during the removal and nothing fall off on head. Luckily. It took us for 2 days to do the job and now the engine bay for this KE30 has been cleared ready for the new engine to fill up the gap. Good by stock 3K engine. Check out the next post for this project.
To be continue…
