Toyota Tercel Engine
For the Toyota E series of engine, the history can trace to their 1E or 2E Starlet model, than the 3E and 4E Corolla with latest 5E of Sera, Cynos, Tercel and Paseo.
Only the 5E series of engine is using metal cylinder head gasket while other using either graphite or silicone type of material, still there are 4E engine that install with turbo, wish to install the metal cylinder head gasket on it.
The original 5E metal cylinder head gasket thickness may be only 0.25mm but the 4E graphite cylinder head gasket have a thickness around 1.0mm, so would this thickness cause any efficiency on the engine performance?
