    What are the differences

    Seeing as I am buying an 89 LX-i I would like to find out what all the differences are between the years. I used to own an 87 LX-i and found a great site but I cannot seem to find it again. Also, what are a few commonly used intakes? I'm not modifying the car for speed, I've a Supra for that, I am just trying to free up the airflow a little

    SEARCH makes some great options.........

    there are just a few cosmetic differences between the years. DX and LX had carbs, LXi and SEi had EFI. thats the biggest differences.

    The 88-89 LXi had larger front brakes, larger sway bars (or maybe just the rear bar is larger, I'm not sure), different idle controls, intake and exhaust manifolds.
