Toyota Starlet with a 3S-GE Inline-Four

Peter Schrey has spent many hours in his garage in North Shore, New Zealand turning his 1981 Toyota Starlet into a race car. The little car rides on a tube chassis with a custom pushrod suspension that allows adjustable anti-squat and anti-dive. Power comes from a 2.0 L 3S-GE Gen 5 “Black Top” inline-four from a first generation JDM Altezza. The engine features factory internals and camshafts, 45 mm 4A-GE throttle bodies, Pace dry sump system, and removed VVTi. A Link G4+ Atom ECU controls the inline-four and produces 200 horsepower to the wheels. The drivetrain consists of a Fraser lightweight flywheel, Toyota clutch, W55 five-speed manual transmission, and Altezza rear end with Cusco 2way LSD. You can view more photos at the project’s homepage and Instagram or watch it race on its YouTube channel.
