    okay my younger brother who drives and 5th gen celly, blew his motor tonight.

    I found a 3s-ge

    (still waiting to see if its still for sale)

    how hard would the swap be from my 3s-fe to this 3s-ge. and finally can we swap my 3s-fe into my bros 5th gen with a 5s-fe?

    I am doing this as a way to get his car back on the road. also if anyone thinks the 3s-ge is a scam/bad deal then please let me know. Also is there anything i should look for when i look @ the engine, that could be a sign of problems to come.

    dunno about the engine swaps, but im doubting that its a scam.. 1g 3sge engines dont seem to go for very much anyways. but it never hurts to be cautious.

    Engine mount wise, it'll bolt up. its the wiring that you'll have to deal with. the 4th and 5th gen sensors differ quite alot. Plus the 5s is a 2.2 and the 3s is a 2.0, not sure how the ecu is gonna like that.

    So mechanically, it'll be fine. It's the electrical you have to have worry about.

    Well to make your swap a little intresting - Use the 3SFE block with the 5SFE head- this way you wont have to change the ECU, or the Harness and you will gain about 13 HP !!

    jus for shits n giggles, wat mods must be done in order to do this, or is it more like a bolt on n drive away type of thing. I currently have a 3SFE n I really aint too knowledged on swaps n such so bear wit me

    haha I was joking. I may put a 5SFE in my 87 :(. I don't want to but it may be my only option. at least I'd have a tranny ready for the GTE swap.
