I have a 2009 Toyota corolla S 1.8 5speed manual. And want a tad more pep out of it. And by tad, I mean 68 more horsepower. But I also would like to stay naturally aspirated.

Asked by Feb 17, 2015 at 03:34 PM about the 2009 Toyota Corolla S

Question type: Car Customization

I am aware of cai, exhaust, and
programmer. Looking for other
additions that aren't forced
induction. Not a big array of internals
available for the 1.8l. So any ideas?

1 Answer

Sorry, not gonna happen. Even if you did put on a supercharger, which you don't want anyway, you are not going to bump it up to 200 HP from the 132 it has. Even the 2.4L, the same engine in a Camry that was available as an option in the 2009 Corolla puts out 158. There simply isn't anything, and I am not pulling this from thin air, have been through this, looked before.
