hey what's up guys, I just have a few quick questions regarding the 3rd gen. 3sgte...

1) Has there ever been any write up's on swapping a 3rd gen 3sgte into a NA mk2?

2) Is there a way to disable the 120mph speed limiter on the 3rd gen engine?

3) How well will the engine run using 91 octane?

1. Not a complete step-by-step, but close. www.mr2two.net/mr2modproject Second drop down menu from left in gen3 stuff.

2. Yup. Any aftermarket ECU, such as Mine's or Blitz, tunes the engine as well as eliminating speed cut. There are also small black boxes that just eliminate speed cut made by somebody, maybe HKS?

3. It will still run fine, but you may not have much luck with higher boost, like 15 psi, unless you have an upgraded intercooler or water injection. I would be worried you would be detonating on higher boost with 91 octane.

And if you still haven't decided yet, I recommend the 3rd gen swap. You'll love it!
