    you saying it aint something you would photograph.

    I am not much of an engine guy but is there something under that hood that should impress me?

    The swap itself is cool, but the way he had executed is questionable.

    My rants:
    If it's a Corolla GT-S, it came equipped with a 4AGE(1.6L DOHC fuel injected motor) over the 4A(1.6 carburetor).

    But in this case, it seems the owner swapped over a non turbo two liter 3S-GE, and converted it over to a 3S-GTE(turbo) motor. There's also a top mount intercooler, that doesn't seem to be getting air flow through it. Better yet, just not run one.

    Other things that bug me:
    The vacuum line running to the BOV
    Spark plug wires
    Oil catch can

    I guess it all comes down to if he's happy with it, that's all that matters.

    keep in mind, these are not show cars at all, which is why all the criticism sounds like it would come from people who expected show car quality

    function > form

    the engine is originally a turbo engine

    the top mount intercooler has ducting under it, a v mount radiator and a drop vent on the hood, airflow is nothing to worry about
