    Hehe. But really the 1.3 xe has the worse power to weight ratio. I think it is only running with 70hp and also around the same number for torque, but it is pulling what we call a "big body" corolla back then.

    hehehehehee .. I'm not single anymore, my current 2e 1.3 is use as a family car ... usually a up to 5 people plus luggage in the trunk, thats where the extra power of the GLI 1.6 could be put to good use .. Cannot afford an old school sportivo as of the moment .. I'm currently in a crossroad whether to sell my 2e 1.3, the thing that scares me is what if I've regret buying an EFI when problems arise, it the cost of repairing an EFI compare to a carburetor .. a carburetor is easy and cheap to maintain .. but underpowered nga lang ..

    We also had a AE101 and AE111 1.3L back in the day and it served its purpose. I prefer EFI cars as these are more consistent with the FC and they're more straightforward to maintain in my case.

    Are there no issues that na tirik ang EFI on long drives, pagnatirik kasi ang 2e, madali lang i-trouble shoot ng kahit sinong mechanic, ang EFI ba mahirap i-trouble shoot ??

    When I was younger I also worked in motor shop. Pero magmula nang lumabas ang computer assisted systems, hindi ko kaya maski tune-up kasi di ko na maintindihan. . .

    A 2000 XE with 2E engine was my daily driver until 2 years ago when it was upgraded to a 2005 Altis 1.6J. In my experience mas matipid pa yung Altis kesa dun sa lovelife na dati kong gamit with power to boot.

    As i said previously, it's not whether the car is EFI or carburetor, it's how the previous owner maintained it. If you maintain the car properly (regular service, use the proper parts, and replacement of the filters, etc.) then hindi ka ititirik sa long drives. On trouble shooting, a Toyota Corolla 4AFE is still pretty straightforward to repair as long as you go to the proper mechanic or shop.

    My 1.4L Sentra with a carb does 6-7km/L in traffic. My daily drive 1.6L Altis on the other hand will always be spot-on 9km/L++ to 10km/L in the same conditions.
