I was just wondering if anybody here has done a blacktop swap in a 5th gen. If anybody has can you tell me the car is fast as fuck cuz I've been wanting to get rid of me gutless 4AFE and drop one of these bad boys in.

one of my friends has a 96 corolla with a 20v silver top turbo that puts down 312hp to the wheels

A blacktop won't exactly be all that fast.... it'll be a HUGE step up from your 4afe, especially depending what transmission you end up with. But if you're expecting a fire-breathing rocket, it's not the way to go.

I rode in colossus 20v's car... it was okay, I meen if I had a blown 4a and wanted to make a little more power over stock I would purchase one but it wouldnt be anywhere near a 3sgte swap.

its super fast. A 20v is far superior than a 3sgte and any other engine you can think of. Since I couldnt swap the 2jv in I decided the 20v was the best solution and it by far has been. I love my 20v and it loves me.

That's a pretty vague statement. There is no superior platform. Rallying awd, drifting FR, economic FF, and MR certainly is superior in some ways but not all.

RR... meh, porsche should drop that.

I was considering getting a 3SGTE but then again I would rather just stick to something N/A. If I just change my mind I might just consider going Turbo

If you go 20v, and might possibly be going turbo in the future, the general consensus is that the Blacktop has really weak internals (due to weight reduction) and can't handle boost as well as a Silvertop. That's not to say that a stock Silvertop is perfectly fine for a turbo either.

the only reason that I'm not considering going Turbo is cuz it seems a little too complicated for me. Then again I wouldn't mind having a little extra power and my friend with his CRX would hella hate on me cuz now my car would be faster than his for once

Thought you were getting a 4AGZE? We're not talking about that in here.
