I'm don't own a caldina... I own the engine though.

But still.. where do you guys get parts for your rides? Stealership? Web? Ebay?

Which engine designation is it? And which model Toyota do you have it in?

I believe the first gen Caldina was available with the 5E-FE, 4S-FE, 7A-FE I4, 3S-FE, 3S-GE, 2C I4 diesel, 2C-T Turbodiesel and the 3C-E diesel while the second gen was offered with the 7A-FE, 3S-FE, 3S-GE, 3S-GTE, 2C-T Turbodiesel, 3C-TE Turbodiesel.

Depending on which one you have there are many places you can purchase performance parts.

Just last night I was thinking I should've said which engine I have...

I got the 3S-GTE and it's going to be mounted on a rav4. Probably in about 2 or 3 weeks. I still need to sort out some electrical issues with the ECU before the actual swap takes place.

I'm not going to rebuild the engine at this moment other than a new oil pump and a set of ACL bearings, but I know I'll probably do so when I get more money.

Any suggestions on something special for this engine?

Man, there's a ton that can be done to that engine! Is your Rav all/four wheel drive?

Do some research in our MR2 and Celica forums, those cars both came with the 3S-GTE option from the factory. There are also quite a few people who have swapped the 3S-GTE into gen3 Camrys, Corollas of various years, as well as other model MR2s and Celicas. ...and I know off the top of my head of one Starlet with a 3S-GTE swap.

this one is from the wikipedia article about the car:

Grill is kind of odd, but overall the car is really nice.

@BLUEMANIE

Nice Scion you have there... I wished toyota had them here in Costa Rica... I might import one though.. hehe

Btw, my car is not AWD... it's 5speed FWD. I'm thinking about buying a celica drivetrain and converting it to a "four legged" as we call it in spanish. It's already been lowered 2" with H&R springs...

Does anyone know where fuel cut is on the 3sgte powered caldina? As in I know on the sw20 MR2 it is around 12psi on the stock ecu without modification. The later "Gen3" 3sgte was up around 18psi I think. But the Caldina 3sgte "Gen4" I have no idea. Could anyone point me in the right direction on that information?

A late reply but just noticed this question since somebody else replied to this thread. My brother owns a 1998 Caldina GT-T (Gen4) with a 3S-GTE engine and the factory fuel cut is around 19psi. He has since upgraded to a Mines ECU so the factory fuel cut etc is now gone, but that's what it was when the car was completely standard :thumbsup:.
