Want to start a project of a KE70 Corolla and fit in a SR20DET motor and box, have read around a few places but so far got a fairly good idea of what to do but still would appreciate some assistance.

Looking around at the moment for the car itself but have a few to go and look at,
Decided on getting a front cut off an S14 for the motor and box etc

Can anyone give me advice on the following:
- how much body mods are involved in trans tunnel etc.
- what suspension setup will be ok for it (trying to keep it street legal its not a dedicated drift car and i hear they use a corona upgrade?)
- Brake Setup what are people recommending for fronts and a rear disc conversion also MC Size etc

Any Help Greatly Appreciated

1. none if done right
2. heaps of options out there ae86 brakes with rx7 calipers and civic rotors is one. Wilwood do a kit. hell could even go s13 set up
3. rear disc, either JDM discs, or corona avante is the go.
Wait scrap that it's a KE... get a t series first (that is strong enough) otherwise go your tarago, hilux etc etc

Bolt whole s13 k frame in. Just need to elongate a couple of holes. Then motor is a bolt in and go all s13 front suspension with 86 camber tops and it's all bolt in! Will just need a custom gearbox x member.

Really not a fan of the s13 front end in early corollas, not sure why people do it. It changes the physics of the front end completely
