11th place for 4AGE (16 valve)

The mighty 4AGE powers all sorts of cars, both Toyota and non-Toyota. Popular Toyotas running the 4AGE and 4AGZE engines include the high rpm rpm sports cars like Toyota Corolla AE86 and Toyota Sprinter, AE86 Toyota Trueno and Toyota Levin.
Non-Toyota cars running 4AGE 16v and 4AGE 20v engines include Clubmans and other light weight kit cars.

LIke we said the 4AGE engine was used in jdm toyota corolla but not only, it has also been used in the Formula Atlantic racing series in the USA. One of the most popular homes for the 4AGE these days is in the RWD AE86, which is often used for drifting and circuit racing.The 4A-GE produced 112 hp (84 kW) at 6,600 rpm and 131 N·m (97 lb·ft) of torque at 4,800 rpm in the American market.

The use of a vane-type air flow meter (AFM), which restricted air flow slightly but produced cleaner emissions that conformed to the U.S. regulations, limited the power considerably - the Japanese model, which uses a manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor, was originally rated at 128 PS (94 kW).

However, this was a gross power rating and the motor was later re-rated at 120 PS (88 kW) net. Nonetheless, Japanese cool sports cars tested no faster than their American counterparts despite their higher power rating and a lower curb weight.

Top Japanese Engines

Toyota designed the engine for performance; the valve angle was a relatively wide 50 degrees, which at the time was believed to be ideal for high power production. Nowadays, more modern high rpm sports cars with high-revving engines have decreased the valve angle to 20 to 25 degrees, which is now believed to be ideal for high-revving engines with high specific power outputs.
