Swapping a 4A-FE for a 4A-GE “Black Top” (& other performance mods)
Pictured above is a ‘slave cam system’. Notice that the timing belt is only connected to one camshaft. The other cam becomes a ‘slave’ to the first camshaft, hence the name of the system. This is used in the 4A-FE.
JASMA is not a brand. It stands for “Japanese Sports Muffler Association” which is a certification for exhaust systems that comply to certain standards.

Take A Look Inside
After a little pondering, it also got to me just how slow Proton must have been in adapting to new technology. Toyota’s VVT was introduced in 1991 with the “Silver Top” 4A-GE. Proton’s Campro VVT was introduced in 2014. That’s 23 years apart. Toyota’s T-VIS was introduced way back in 1983. Proton’s IAFM was introduced in 2008. That’s 25 years apart. If that says anything, my guess is Proton’s hybrid would also be 20 something years apart from Toyota’s Hybrid. If Toyota’s Prius was first launched in 1997, then Proton’s Hybrid might just be out in 2020 or 2022. Who knows?
