If you can find Dennis Wade (posts as badtoy), he turbocharged his Corolla with the help of Toysport. But I think his was quite a bit never than yours (1999?). I'll see if I still have an e-mail for him.

Nice to have a topic we can sink our teeth into!
Yes, I had a 2000 Corolla with a Garrett T25; it ran about 5.5 lbs of boost wihout intercooling, and was very strong and entertaining. Never had any problems with it, and I still got 28-30 mpg.
There are any number of places who can install a turbo for you -- just don't get too crazy with the stock engine, or the bottom end will bo away on you. I would also suggest intercooling, for top all-around performance, especially on hot days.

All this has been helpful. I have been doing a lot of research and I have found a complete turbo kit with intercooler for my car. The price is right around $2500, so its not that bad. I'll be buying the kit in 2months. I need some time to save some money. http://www.nolimitmotorsport.com/prod/TC2001-X

#9 of 28 Turbo Back Exhaust

From my understanding it is alo a great idea to run turbo back exhaust when you turbo your car. I havent been able to find any turbo back exhaust systems for my car. does anyone know where a system is available for the 1.6l 4afe toyota engine???
