Post Paseo Engine Swap Guide (Revised 3/07)

Paseo/Tercel Engine Swap Guide


So we have had threads about engine swaps but in different threads. I wanted to make this in a nut shell for all. Engine swapping is a great way to gain power but to not be taken lightly. Do your homework and should be fine.

First you have to know what engine codes mean so you can understand what youíre putting in your engine bay.

Before the dash:
The number indicates the engineís generation.
The letters indicate the engine familyFor example in 2JZ-GTE engine is the 2nd model of the family and in the JZ family.

After the dash:

G = twin cam (wide angle, 45 degrees or more between the intake and exhaust valves)

F = "economical" twin cam (narrow angle, around 22 degrees)
T = turbocharged
Z = supercharged

E = fuel injection
i = single point fuel injection
R = air injection
S = swirl intake ports (only a few made in mid '80s)
S = direct injection & swirl pot pistons (starting from '97/98)

U = emission package (Japan)

C = emission package (California)
LPG = LPG fuel

Then once you know that you can explore what options you have. I made a list of engines that I have found that have been done.

Swap List Include:
4E-FE
4E-FTE (Turbo)
4E-FTE/5E-FHE (Hybrid)
5E-FHE (Japan Version)
4A-GE
4A-GZE (Supercharged)
4A-GE/7A-FE (Hybrid)
3S-GE
3S-GTE (Turbo)

4E-FE & 4E-FTE


Easiest, cheapest and most common swap because it's direct bolt-on. The toughest thing on this is the wiring

Engine Cam Valve Displacement HP Torque Compression Model(s)
4E-FE DOHC 4 1331 99@6600 86@5200 9.6:1 EL41 EL51 EP82 EP91

4E-FTE DOHC 4 1331 135@6400 116@4800 8.2:1 EP82 EP91

EP82 EP91
4E-FTE:

4E-FTE/5E-FHE Hybrid


The hybrid uses the 5E-FHE crank block, head, rods, timing belt, belt gears, intake manifold, seals, bearings, flywheel and clutch with 4E-FTE pistons, oil sump, and oil pan.

Although both engines being almost the same there are some differences. All in all, you are taking the best from both engines and making a new one. Never has been dyno tested but I assume itís a hefty motor.

5E-FHE

The 5E-FHE is a 5E-FE just the Japanese version. The internals are better and it has higher compression. Direct bolt-on

Engine Cam Valve Displacement HP Torque Compression Model(s)
5E-FHE DOHC 4 1496 110@6400 98@5200 9.8:1 EL43 EL44B
5E-FHE DOHC 4 1496 110@6400 100@4000 9.8:1 EL44C EL54(C) EXY10

EL43 EL44B EL44C EL54(C) EXY10
5E-FHE:


4A-GE & 4A-GZE


These engines come out of Celicas, MR2s, and Corollas. They donít directly bolt-on so custom mounts have to be made.

Engine Cam Valve Displacement HP Torque Compression Model(s)
4A-GE DOHC 4 1587 120@6800 105@6000 9.4:1 AW11 AE92
4A-GE DOHC 4 1587 140@7200 100@7200 10.3:1 AE92 "Redtop"
4A-GE DOHC 4 1587 160@7400 120@7400 10.5:1 AE101 VVT "Silvertop"
4A-GE DOHC 4 1587 165@7800 123@7800 11:1 AE111 VVT "Blacktop"
4A-GZE DOHC 4 1587 145@6400 137@4400 8.0:1 AW11 AE92
4A-GZE DOHC 4 1587 165@6400 152@4400 8.9:1 AE92
4A-GZE DOHC 4 1587 170@6400 152@4400 8.9:1 AE101

AW11 AE92
4A-GE (16 Valve):


AE101
4A-GE (20 Valve):


AE111
4A-GE (20 Valve):


AW11 AE92 AE101
4A-GZE:


4A-GE/7A-FE Hybrid

This hybrid uses the 4A-GE top with the 7A-FE bottom. It increases the displacement to 1.8. More displacement more power. I don't know much about this swap but more details are coming soon.

3S-GE & 3S-GTE

The best horsepower engines swaps for Paseos also is the hardest and heaviest to install (wiring, fabricating engine mounts, notching the frame and space) Lots of time and money will be involved.

Engine Cam Valve Displacement HP Torque Compression Model(s)

3S-GE DOHC 4 1998 150@6000 132@4800 9.2:1 ST162

3S-GE DOHC 4 1998 158@6600 137@4800 9.2:1 ST182 ST183 SW20
3S-GE DOHC 4 1998 200@7000 152@6000 11.5:1 ST200 SW21 (VVT-i)
3S-GTE DOHC 4 1998 182@6000 184@3200 8.5:1 ST165
3S-GTE DOHC 4 1998 200@6000 200@3200 8.1:1 ST185 SW20
3S-GTE DOHC 4 1998 225@6000 225@3200 8.5:1 ST205 SW20

ST162
3S-GE (1st Gen):


SW20 ST182 ST183
3S-GE (2nd Gen):


SW21 ST200
3S-GE (3rd Gen):


SW20 ST165 SW185 SW205
3S-GTE:


As long as I am talking about engineís I will briefly talk about turboing them. Best way to go about turboing is use an engine that was made to have forced induction; 4E-FTE, 4A-GZE, 3S-GTE. The 5E-FHE has pretty tough internals and maybe good to turbo but like I said you have to do your homework.

I have been doing tons of research on many sites and forums. I have asked Toyota mechanics their opinion's and got thier know how. Enjoy.

Yup.. Switching for 5efhe based after reading

My '92 had an oil problem, and the lifters got noisy. I pulled the oil pan and found metal.
My 5efhe arrives tomorrow.

Transmission

Does the 4E-FTE bolt right up to the transmission in my 1994 paseo? or should I buy an engine/transmission package?

3sgte swap

I'm planning to do a 3sgte swap to my 95 tercel. Besides the custom mounts what other concerns are there. I know the wiring will be a mess, but does the tranny be a direct bolt up. My tercel has a 2nd generation 5efe ... 5spd. I'm planning on making a 11 second street legal tercel.

you'll need frame cut and reinforced custom mounts, costum axels, the tranny that goes to the 3sgte, a mess of wiring and many many other stuff is not a cheap swap you better have more than 10K in the bank just for the swap

does the tranny from the 3E motor bolt up to the 4E-FTE. I know its probably not a very strong tranny but is it the same bellhousing flange and clutch??

Thanks
