Yes, you'd have a stroked 3S.sleepr said:so if i took a 3s block and had a 5s (2.2l) crank machined to fit 3S-GTE rod journals would it make it a 2.2 if i used that crank?
3s is supposed to have thicker walls. That's one reason everyone opts out of the 5sfte and gets scared of the 5sgte( well and the money needed too).Pineapple said:Isn't 5S got bigger bore?
Why stoke the 3S and not use 5S block and crank?
3S block stronger?
Slightly bigger. 3.43" (87mm) vs. 3.39" (86mm).Pineapple said:Isn't 5S got bigger bore?
This was posted by Wraith:Isnt the 5S block taller than the 3S, if thats the case you wont be able to use the crank, nor the 5S internals.
alot of the higher horsepower MR2 are running a 5s-fe blocks which are found in mr2's in Japan... And a few drag cars using a 3s-gte motors are using them...sleepr said:"3s is supposed to have thicker walls.

so not true?
I did not plumb for oil squiters... I tapped the oil for the turbo at the head. The 5s-fe has bigger water and oil passages than the 3sgte. The bore is slightly bigger and the block can take a bigger sleeve...alltrac165 said:Wraith,
did you have to do much to plumb for oil? Like are you using piston squirters? Where did you tap in for oil to the turbo? Just curious. I figure the drain back would be easy...
What other differences are there besides the 5S being a taller deck?
The oil squiters are only good when you drive the car constantly and stuck in traffic ... The problem with them is they start to cause foaming in the oil pan at the high rpms ...alltrac165 said:^kewl, thanks for the info
To turbo a 5S, the easiest thing to do is use a 3S-GTE turbo manifold and CT-26 turbo.emeny2 said:so from what i read its best to just turbo a stock 5s? or should there be some 3s parts on it to?
The oil feed for the turbo can be tapped off the head. Theres a oil pressure switch that screws into the upper right corner of the head. You need a T, lines, and fittings.and would it be possible to get a pic of where to drill holes for oil for a turbo?
