Has anyone given any thought to using a Toyota 4E-FTE Starlet motor, We use the 4A -GE 20valve in our Lotus race series and I regularly visit the engine importers, looking around I have seen these motors for sale. The motor is extreemly light for the power available and designed to take the punch of a turbo charger, and it can easily use any of the aftermarket ECU's like Spitronics, Perfect Power, Gotech, Haltek, Dicktator etc.
4E-FTE

The 1st generation 4E-FE was the basis of the 4E-FTE, appearing in 1989, which was a turbocharged engine producing 133 hp (99 kW) at 6400 rpm with 116 lb·ft (157 N·m) of torque at 4800 rpm. The 4E-FTE was the most powerful of the E series engines ever produced. It was produced exclusively for the Toyota Starlet GT Turbo (Japan Only) and its replacement, the Toyota Glanza V (Japan only). However the 4E-FTE was a very popular conversion engine by enthusiasts for many small Toyota cars such as the Corolla, Tercel and Paseo, which it fitted into with standard Toyota parts. The 4E-FTE differed internally from the 4E-FE only by its stronger connecting rods, lower compression pistons and up-rated valve springs. It also featured a harmonic damper instead of a normal crankshaft pulley. The turbocharger fitted to the 4E-FTE was Toyota's own CT9 model, which featured an internal waste gate and had 2 modes: low (0.4 bar/40 kPa) and high (0.65 bar/65 kPa) boost. The low boost mode was electronically controlled by a solenoid valve and the ECU and the high boost was controlled by an actuator connected to the turbocharger. The 4E-FTE also had a top mounted, air cooled intercooler. The 4E-FTE was mated to the Toyota C52 transmission (for the EP82 Starlet GT) and the C56 transmission (for the EP91 Glanza V). Although aftermarket parts could substantially increase the power output to 400 hp, the major limitation is the fuel injection system and the stock ECU

EHlo All.

I'm going to bump this thread in the hope that we can get this going again.

I'm busy sourcing all the bits and bobs for the 3Cyl conversion as the imported versions are out of my price class.

If there are others interested, maybe we can work together to get a "affordable" diy system going?

Cheers

No paperwook needed except for a entry in the logbook by the AP that checked your work and you have to re-weigh the plane, she will be about 8-10kg lighter then just send a copy of the weight and balance to RAASA. No further actions needed. There should be very little change in the CG of the plane.

Ek raai maar jy praat met my ... Nee, maar ek het mounting saam met engine gekry :mrgreen: Ek moet nou net besluit of ek 912 mount gaan source, of hele 1 piece mount gaan maak.. Het Nice mount gesien wat iemand gemaak het vir YoTa motor, gebruik orspronklike engine mounts van die motortjie so nogals netjies. Sal foto gaan soek.

Ek sukkel ook nog met engineer shop wat my kan help met pulley's.. niemand so ver kan van CAD drawings af werk nie... soek almal sample.. hel, as ek sample gehad het, sou ek nie een wou laat maak nie (**) . Ek het 2 plekke darem gekry waar ek pulley kan invoer en dis nogsteeds helfte van prys as wat local my voorlopig geqoute het.

Die brackets etc het ek darem qoute gekry by CNC shop, en dis aanvaarbaar. Ek moet nog CAD klaar maak, maar wil eers pulley's finaliseer. Dan sal ek dit alles oplaai.

oo.. Besig met "gesprek" met P-Prop oor beste RPM vir dis bosbaba tiepe vleigtuig sodat ek 100% regte reduction ratio kan maak vir die HP vs Aeri VS tiepe vlieg...

Quick update form my side.

Going with Spitronics ECU, been used for Subaru for while on the gyro's and been proven . They even supply method for redundant switchover, but one need to draw line somewhere for redundancy.. ..

80% of PSRU (reduction drive) calculations done, now trying to find someone willing to give me prices. I can never figure out that people complain there no work, but when you ask for things no-one bothers to return your calls or give you quotes.... ($$)

If all goes to plan and taking prices from overseas, Firewall forward should be under R 25k . -0< Worst case, R 35k . This at least still under 50% of 582 with about 35% fuel saving and hoping for 95% local parts which make sourcing/repairing lot simpler.
