Toyota 4AGE

The 4AGE is one of Toyotas most famous engines, and although it has been out of production for over a decade it continues to be extremely popular amongst car builders.

There are three main versions of the 4AGE as follows:

  • 4AGE 16v (big port and small port)
  • 4AGE 20v (silver top and black top)
  • 4AGZE 16v Supercharged

The original 4AGE 16v was the big port. This engine first appeared in the now-famous AE86 Levin and Trueno, as well as the AE82 'Twincam 16' Corolla.

Later model Corollas came with the 4AGE 16v small port engine. The AE92 was fitted with this engine, in models such as the SX, GTi and FX-GT.

The quest for more power brought about the supercharged 4AGE - known as the 4AGZE. This engine appeared in the AE92 and some newer Toyotas.

Finally the 4AGE 20v engine appeared as the pinnacle of factory 4A egines. This one came in the AE101 and AE111 Corollas, Levins and Truenos, as well as a limited number of other small Toyotas.

Although the 4AGE engine only appeared in small Toyotas during the 80s and 90s, it is still a hugely popular engine that can be found in anything from Ford Escorts to Clubmans and other custom cars.
