Rollachriz did mention the stock intake holding back ~400hp.... as other hi strung 4/7AGTEs have found could it be old tired oem valve springs causing power to hit a brick wall, while 'stock' cams get the blame ? all the additional pressure on the back of the valve, might have a huge affect ? the DS...

this one is more typical of numerous stock cam 4agte builds; http://www.sdsefi.com/features/aug03corolla.htm 315 hp with a T4 compressor @24-25psi. At 28psi only saw 321hp.... boost just builds up in the intake tract. if the stock cam 16V head restricts a 1600cc like that, wouldn't it be worse on 18...

I used an $11 4AFE head gasket on my imported 5AFE years back. Worked fine
4AFE(1.6L) and the 5AFE(1.5L) externally, look identical to me. Later 5AFE have a different looking intake tho

Re: Rear brake caliper won't release....rearend upsizing lead to this? (Sorry long)

so you've isolated the problem down to the seal or whatever retracts the piston.
Maybe the parking brake mechanism interferring with that ?
could u first take the caliper apart to see what's up ? ....since u may be using it as a core later anyway

Re: Tokyo DD EP91 Starlet Turbo

Good for u!
seen folks import those back in the islands ~10-12 years ago. Would rarely pull $12-1500
Clean Evo IIIs and S13s/ca18 or sr20 were very popular..... in the $1800 - 2500 range
Lower availability probably sent the prices back upwards ?

that's the CAM timing u checked ?
My GTS is hard as heck to start if I don't "pulse" the cold start injector (single one hi up on side of plenum). Use the same pigtail
Mine fires right up after that. iirc the COR pulses it automatically on startup. Just not got to sorting my own yet
