The valve seats were sprayed on, rather than pressed into the head, so they could be much thinner and transfer heat more effectively to the head; that meant less heat reaching the valve stems, allowing thinner, lighter valve stems and, in turn, thinner cam lobes, which cut parasitic losses and allowed both cams to be driven by a quiet, compact single-roller timing chain. There will two drops one is front of engine I am able to see this drop from top after I open the hood.

Doesn't piston slap make the engine sound like a diesel engine? An enlarged valve nip angle and laser-clad valve seat increased tumble and air volume; pistons with a round top surface and slanted sidewall helped tumble and reduced knocking allowing higher compression while reducing friction. The worst part is when people find out you drive a corolla and they start raving about what a great car you have. This is also little towards the passenger side. They would need to get pretty sloppy to be this noisy, and I think wear would accelerate far more rapidly than anyone has seen. This Corolla has a maximum legal carrying capacity of 1,500 lb 680 kg.
