My 93' Corolla from New Zealand (JDM AE100)

It's all about 4AGE, NZE, 3SGTE, 1JZ, 2JZ etc.

My latest addition is this Blitz Access ECU. This is a standard 4A-GE 20v Blacktop ECU that has been 'chipped' but Blitz in Japan, and offers more aggressive fuel mapping, a rev limit of 8,500rpm, no speed cut etc. Straight after installing it I could feel that the midrange power was noticeably stronger, allowing the car to get into it's power-band sooner and pull consistently until redline. The performance is similar to the 6-speed ECU I was running previously, but this one has a noticeable 'kick' to it when you put your foot down. I have to give the ECU some time to adjust to my mods and driving style, but so far the upgrade seems to have been worth it :)

Still admiring this car....
Will post pictures of the one we owned sometime, but trust me, it did not look as good as this, lol...

By the way, what kind of camera do you use to take the pictures?

I used AE111 SuperStrut 275mm rotors and twinpot calipers, 266mm AE101/AE111 rear disc brakes and Safebrake braided brake lines.

It's quite hard to find Japanese chipped ECU's on the market, but best chance would be to keep an eye out on eBay and Yahoo Japan Auctions.

I think it's karma. Every time I start seriously considering selling mine, someone bumps this thread and I get those AE101 feels all over again.

As much as I hate to say it, this build is now over and the car is up for sale :(. It's been a very enjoyable 6-years and I've met a huge amount of great people over that time, so I'd just like to say a massive thank you to everybody who has supported this project over the years and has offered their thoughts, opinions and encouragement. Without that, this build likely would've died a long time ago, so cheers! :D. I look forward to seeing what the future holds and the exciting times that are ahead :)

Wow. Sad to see it go but the new owner will be getting one heck of a car!

Feel free to post up the new project.

Good Luck!

Are those levin twin pot calipers and disc a direct bolt on or are there any machining etc required

Cuz most Foreign used parts dealers locally say you have to machine an 1/8th of the circumference of the disc and the back to fit etc?
