I would own a 3sgte over a 3sge or 5sfe anyday but I would own a V6 over a 3sgte anyday and everyday.Gocasen said:I am saving up for a clip. I have the choice between a 3sge 3rd gen or a second gen 3sgte but thats a 93 so it has the good tranny and a lsd. Now how much hp does the 3rd gen 3sge come with and how many of you guys regret not saving and getting a turbo.
No you don't understand. A 3sgte you can get a larger turbo for about $500-$800 and that does not require a new manifold, downpipe, exhaust, fuel upgrades, nada nothing.Gocasen said:You forget upgrading a 3sgte to a bigger turbo will cost the same as adding a turbo onto the 3sge everything needs to be upgraded on the 3sgte also. With the 3sge you are just adding it on.
No you don't. The stock fuel componants on the 3sgte 2nd gen are rated up to 270-280RWHP the GEN3's can go way past that since they were upgraded to the 540's and the gen2's have 440's. Trust me on this I know what I am talking about.....Gocasen said:I forgot a major thing the ____astic s54 tranny. The 3sge comes with that i guess i will save get the 3sgte with the 93 lsd tranny. Also if you get a bigger turbo on a 3sgte you need to free up the rail and injectors too. Fuel is restrictive on the 3sgte also.
