dont knock a 2.0 liter just because it is a 2.0 liter. the 3sgte is a turbo 2.0 liter with double the power in stock condition as the 2.2L 5sfe. the 2.0L 3sGe is prolly 50 more hp in stock form. but the thing with those is the torque isnt there... you need torque to start the wheels rollin.
the 3sfe is NOT a good engine for the camry. in ANY case. yes it was used in the gen 2 camry, and is still underpowered there... but when you move into the gen 3 camry it is WAY too underpowered. the gen 3 is a lot heavier than gen 2.
why would you swap out anyways? getting bored? high mileage? want more power? what?
anywaqys if you are interested in swapping out your 5sfe, chose either another 5sfe, a 3sGTE or a 3vzfe(cause its a 92-93 car). (1mzfe would be a good swap if t was 94+, the wiring is easier using these combos with the years). how do i know this? i swapped a 1mz into my 94. ive swapped 2 3vzs as well... straight stock swaps though. either way, i know the engines and i know the wiring... you DONT want to wire a 94+ motor to a 92-93 car. you just DONT want to do it... trust.
i've decided to rebuild the 5sfe, do you know of a good rebuild kit ? i should be able to turn the crank and save it, new pistons,rings,gaskets and seals should do it......oh yeah and the cause of all this.... the oil pump.
157hp, 157lb/ft torque, its called 2AZFE, and it will be a helluva lot of work getting that one into yours.
If you're gonna do this, do it right:
3VZFE 92-94 V6
1MZFE 94-2005 V6
3MZFE 2002+ 3.3L V6 (if you got time, talents and treasury)
5SFE 92-2002 I4 (keepin it simple)
BEAMS 3SGE (if you got time, talents and treasury)
3SGTE 91-2004 I4 (if you got time, talent, treasury and patience)
ok so i've swapped my 5sfe with a used 54sfe, now i'm idling rough and there is a ton of gas coming out of my exhaust pipe.
i used my old fuel rail which was doing fine and my old ignition.
could it be a crossed vaccuum line?
