    I recently bought a Ae86 and was wondering what’s a common (affordable) engine swap for a drift build?

    corolla with 400ps can you imagive how fast is going ??
    is like fly
    you have spend some good money to make this motor bullet proof and thats it
    in other hand sr20 is good didnt rebuilt is more expenmsive but get in more ps
    is your choise how much money and how ps you want

    but dont be crazy if you havent a lot go for sr20 is you puse it a little more not open engine you get it 320-370ps max
    if you have to spend all new pistons rods and 30/71 garrett and you get it arround 370-450ps

    IMHO the whole point of AE86 is being light and nimble. I would stick with anything NA and around 200hp mark. 7A(1.8) block + GE head is popular in Japan if you like to stick with the roots, Toyota but drop in(ish) and powerful 3S-GE Out of altezza RS200 or K20/24, F20C from Honda if you fancy a project and not bothered with having a different manufacturer's engine in the car.

    I wouldn't bother with SR20 TBH , DET will be too heavy(and only 200 hp in stock form), DE is only 165HP.


    However obviously it's your car and you can do whatever you want...
