    hi, im saint first time posting, nice to meet you all.
    i have a 4g gts with a 1g 3sge and im trying to figure out what components are compatable throughout the generations of the 3sge.
    ex. can i use 3sgte pistons, cams, connecting rods? are they better worst?
    any information concerning these things would be greatly appreciated.

    good topic to start on.
    first you'll have to think about compression. i'm certain the GTE and GE have 2 different compression ratios. if you go into the aftermarket section there is a huge list of places where you can get parts. i would try and get GE specific parts but gte will all work. it also depends on what you want to do with your car.

    the ge and gte have very different compression ratios. one is 8.8:1 and the other is 10.8:1 if I remember correctly, I found that on Wikipedia once when I was thinking of turboing my engine.

    was doing some research and turns, out toyota used the same bore and stroke through a ton of the s series motors. i have yet to figure out if the wrist pin size is different. im going to try some pistons out of a 3sfe i'll keep ya posted.

    why would you use fe pistons? unless you are making a high rpm high compression n/a motor...

    Just stick with 3SGE pistons. If you are bent on changing the internals then go forged rods and give wiseco a call. Theyll make you any compression ratio piston. I also believe they have a stock N/A replacement.
