Ever since I got a hardbody…I’ve really started liking hard bodies. Haha.
The original LT1 in the original ZR1. Zora Duntov’s lasting attempt to make the Corvette a true driver’s car.
This is the newly announced LT1 6.2L gen 5 small block with direct injection, and variable valve timing that will debut in the c7 Corvette. Being a chevy lover, im excited that GM has produced a new engine. One that know doubt will be a sufficient powerhouse and no doubt ably an easily modifiable engine. But at the same time Im kinda of disappointed. The LT1 is quite advance compared to the gen 4 motors, but at the same time not. it is still a push rod motor. Im not sure if this is because GM is stubborn or what, but I feel this motor should be an overhead cam motor. Im not sure what kind of power the motor puts down, Im guessing in the 500+ range, but they can easily make more. Its proven that overhead cam motors can rev higher, and make more hp per cubic inch the push rod motors because less metal moving. Dont get me wrong, its gonna be a good motor, but I cant help be a little sad that GM didnt build it to its full potential.
Shut the fuck up you brainless twat. I’m glad GM is keeping true to their roots and keeping the cam in block design alive. It cracks me up that you think the OHV design is a hindrance. How do you feel about Ferraris and Porsches with 4 cams being shred to bits by a big honking push rod V8? Fuck you.
These little engines have gripped my heart in such a way I can’t explain. It’s honestly been kind of my philosophy on life for everything I do to be against the grain and a little off kilter. My first car was a Lumina Z34, body kit and hood vents powered by an over-engineered masterpiece. Followed by the most hated car in the States; The Chevy Cavalier… Z24 to be specific. Now I have an LT1 (yes the shitty one in the dark times before the Almighty LSX) Trans Am and two 4age powered MR2s. Both of these engines are incredibly capable and legendary engines that are more often than not overlooked. All of the trendy punks are off chasing bandwagons in their Hella slammed LS1 240sx or K swapped Civic. It’s not always about being the best, fastest or newest. There’s an unspoken happiness in being proud to own an underdog. The car no one bats an eye at until it’s passing them up or catching more attention than them at a meet. I’m the same way in everything I do, the food I eat, music I listen to, even the hobbies I have (yo-yo anyone?). This stupid little underpowered paper weight is one of the many inspirations I have in life to continue doing what I want and making my own path. Now for this year I want to keep my head on straight and my goals moderately simple; Fix my 20V MR2, make an 11/10 second weekend driving LT1 street terror, and a daily driven 16V street car/track warrior MR2. Let’s see how it goes!!
Awesome 20v Levin Coupe from Norway!!
I need a rhd Levin coupe so badly.
The Toyota Sprinter/Corolla AE86 is Beautifully Engineered
Sports car feel made available to all. The best NA 4-cylinder induction/exhaust sound ever. I owned one and I miss it.
The AE86 generation of the Toyota Corolla Levin and Toyota Sprinter Trueno is a small, lightweight coupe introduced by Toyota in 1983 as part of the fifth generation Toyota Corolla lineup.
The AE86 was available with a fuel-injected 4-cylinder twin-cam 1587 cc 4A-GE engine in Japan and Europe which was also used in the first-generation Toyota MR2 (AW11). This engine had a maximum gross power output of 130 PS and 110 lb·ft of torque in standard form, though it was later down-rated to 120 PS and 105 lb·ft in net output. The AE86 came with a 5-speed manual gearbox, and later came with the option of an automatic. The 4A-GE engines used in the AE86 and AW11 were equipped with T-VIS (Toyota Variable Intake System) to increase torque and fuel economy at low engine speeds, and also allow for good high-RPM airflow.
The AE86 used ventilated disc brakes. The car was equipped with a MacPherson strut style independent suspension at the front and a four-link live axle with coil springs for the rear. Stabilizer bars were present at both ends. Models equipped with the 4A-GE engine received a 6.7” rear differential and optional LSD.
During its production life, the AE86 was a popular choice for showroom stock, Group A, and Group N racing, especially in rallying and circuit races. Even after production of the car was discontinued, many privateer teams still raced the AE86, and it is still a popular choice for rallying and club races today. Part of the continued appeal of the AE86 for motorsports is its rear-drive configuration, a feature not available in most newer lightweight coupes. In Group A world rally cars (1600 cc class) the 4A-GZE engine was popular. In Group A touring car races, the car either dominated the lower category where eligible or fought it out with Honda Civics or the later AE92s and AE101s whilst maintaining its competitiveness.
