Two reasons,,,Ok, legit question:WHY? Why not just use the 3sgte?
Way back in the late '90s/early 2000s Sport Compact Car magazine rated the 4G63 the strongest most durable 4 cylinder you could buy. This was a time when Eclipses/Talons were very common and heavily raced and lots of development being done. They rated the 3SGTE a close second.
Why go through the hassle to swap the 4G63?
Not bashing or judging, just wondering what you reasoning is.
Lastly, cool project!
Appreciate it!!Absolutely mental man, looking forward to seeing it rip!
yeah I'm excited. should be fun. I had a non-turbo auto back in highschool/college. and then a 3000gt vr4 in college after selling mr2. I sold 3000 when we got married and started cranking out kiddos lol. just mid-life fun (crisis?) building silly swaps with the cars I loved over the yearsOk then...lol. Makes sense. this thing aught to rip once you get it dialed in. Mid engine grip should help
Been lurking MR2 forums for past 20+ years lol.Welcome to the site, what a way to start!
I opened this thread and saw those first pics of the car and thought "ooof!"
But then it was 'OH!' as I saw the progress
Keep us posted dude
Mock up Engine in. Requires notching of the passenger side frame to tuck trans under, to make equal length axles and room for accessory belts on driver side
Ended up using rav4 axles with Mitsu inner cups and Non-turbo hubs to match the rav4 26spline

Any turbo eclipse, laser etc. Fwd or awd. Mine is awd. Welded center diff, so I can ditch the tcase and still drive.What cars used that automatic trans? is it an AWD trans being used for 2wd or what. Interested minds want to know.
