Hey, I have a 93 camry 5sfe i was wondering if a Jspec 3sgte from a cellica would match the motor mounts in my car... and would i have to swap out my trany too? im not sure if my trany would hold that much power.
thanx, Chris

Do you have a manual or auto tranny?

And to do that, If i were you i'd beef everything up. Re build the tranny and build up the engine. But that is me.

no. you need custom mounts

Yes. E153 from Camry Solara manuals tend to be used in this project.

Look up all of Wraith's posts and websites related to this. He's already done it.

I have done a 3sgte swap on my celica I used one of my mr2 trans, and bought an new mr2 trans for my mr2.

5sfe would hold the power if your leaving it stock for now, but later if you decide to upgrade it use an v6 camry trans or m2 turbo trans they work best.

The 3sgte should fit perfectly in your motor mounts for now but you might have to replace it sooner or later.

Somewhere in the camry forum someone said about leaving the 5sfe block and putting on a 3sgte head. I think this would be very unique but may also have a lot of problem.

Just like the ls vtec. Integra LS block with Vtec head, very powerful but has a lot of problem.

Camry with a 3sgte would be cool. I like to try that too but I already have a celica with 3sgte.

the emissions difference won't matter, you still have to pass emissions, unless you somehow have a US motor in japan, your emissions aren't the same, so you'll have to compensate either way.

Not only that, but you're going to need custom mounts for a gen3 camry to take a 3sgte, not only that but you'll need a 3sgte ECU along with a list of other things. It's not an easy task.

It would be easier if you had a gen2 camry which uses a 3sfe, which is the same block as the 3sgte.

Smog legal dosnt realy matter here, i live in texas they dont ever check emisions here. and jdm motors have more horse power thats why i want one as oposed to a domestic where theres all that unessisary smog crap

in texas ppl drive around with trucks with straght pipes all the time

i know wrath has a 5s gte i think those are even more powerfull then a 3s gte cuz 5s blocks have biger bore and stroke but since the block is aluminum its got a higher chance of worping or even blowing up under the presure of the turbo

not necessarily. 92-94 5SFEs are iron blocks, all other years are aluminum. Head type doesn't reflect what metal was used for the engine. F heads have more even power spreads, G heads have a sportier power spread.

i believe f and g refer to the heads only, f headsa are "economy" dohc, where as g heads are true dohc, the f heads only have one cam gear connecting to the belt but the g heads are spaced farther apart and have two cam gears connecting to the belt, and someone please make the 3sgte into a camry a sticky with a clear title :p:
