Hello all, I own a 2003 RAV4. The engine recently developed a crack on the block and thus I need to essentially get a new one. I was thinking of buying a turbo-charged 3S-GTE engine and mount it on my RAV4.

Is this even possible? I searched quite a bit but all I found was first gen RAV4 swaps for this engine, nothing for my own gen 2.

I know that most swaps require quite a bit of work, but I was wondering if I would have to alter the engine bay and mounts to actually fit the 3S-GTE engine in there. And if the gearbox can fit as is.

Thank you for your time.

Money is not a concern. I simply want to know what I will need to do. How hard it is, and how much I will have to modify the car. If it's too much, I will just buy a new block for my 1AZ-FE and call it a day.

Yer gonna have to find the engine bay measurements and compare them to engine measurements. The swap is probably gonna be in the price range of $8000 to $10,000 when all done and said. It's gonna take awhile to git everything completed depending on whether yer doing the work or someone else is. ;)
