    Got a second hand Gen3 head with injectors, rail etc. Is it a straight swap i know the timming set up is different as i have a spring type tensioner and the newer head is hydraulic type but other than this would it be a straight swap?
  5. Normally Aspirated
    A bit curious about swapping my 5s-fe with the 3s-ge beams. Not a plan as I have other things to sort out with my two for now but I would like to have this as a project once the winter passes. Has anyone else ever swapped a beams into their 5s? I’m assuming the stock trans will hold the power...
  6. General MK1 - FAQ
    Hey guys, so I own an 86 AW11 A NA and I wanted to swap the engine for a more powerful 2L turbo. I thought about 3SGTE swapping it like a lot of people do but I'm having trouble finding any and even less with a manual transmission. Budget is tight so for me it was a pretty good option but it's...

    Hello, I have a JDM 1990 SW20 Turbo. It has 113,000km's on it. I was wondering what would be a good swap. If I choose a 4 cylinder, I would want to turbo it and supercharge it. Possibly even twin turbo and supercharge it. (and yes, I know that would require built internals). I heard about that...

    Hi all, I'm nearing completion of the gen 4 3sgte swap on my '91 N/A MR2 LHD, but I got a few things holding me back. First, there's a hardline that comes off the wastegate actuator and heads toward the back of the car but I don't know where I need to connect it to. I'm gonna be using the...
  10. 3SGTE Turbo
    I have a 91 MR2 that was an NA but has been swapped with a 4th Gen 3SGTE. I've done a fair amount of research but I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything that I might need to swap the S54 trans for an E153 trans. -E153 itself (the one I found has the factory LSD) -Full Turbo Axles...
  11. 3SGTE Turbo
    Hello everyone, I am thinking about a 3sgte swap either next year or in 2 years for my 28 birthday from ATS Racing. I have the option of these 3 swaps which is a gen 3, basic gen 4/5, or a premium gen4/5 swap. I live in California so I would have to tell them to remove the down pipe from the...

    Alright bois, the time has come. I used to be a member of mr2dotcom but that site got slow as heck so here I am. I own a 1991 MR2 NA with a 3VZFE swap, which blew up and is currently outside of the car (although already rebuilt). I plan on putting this engine back in and driving it for the time...
  13. 3SGTE Turbo
    This is a strange one: my 92 turbo track car has a gen 5 swap from about a year ago which has performed very well on track—up to this past weekend. We had very hot, humid weather (100 degrees, 70% humidity). The car ran fine for the first two morning sessions, then in the third 25-minutes...

    *I think I used "immaculate" a little too loosely. What I meant by that was that the sheet metal is free of dents and rust.* All good things must come to an end. I’m selling the project car I never had the chance to finish. Vehicle history to my knowledge: The car was originally purchased...
