Before Zoni gets here...I wanna be the first to say.....Use the Serch Button!
3S-GTEs also come in Celica All-Trac/GT4 and Caldina.bowlofturtle said:hey i have a minor question that i never really under stood on the 3sgte. the 3sgte are off a mr2 turbo... and the engine is in the trunk of the car correct? Is their like any mods needed ion the first place to run the engine in the front rather then the back if you wanted to drop the engine in a camry or celica?
If you think about it, the engine is mounted the same way as our Camrys. The engine is just moved to the back of the car.i never did understand that. did camry just do a whole reverse setup ?
No. Theres different generations. ST-165, 185, and 205. Caldina is ST-215.bowlofturtle said:but the all-trac celica's aren't they the older models like 80's.
You can use a tranny from a Celica with the 3S-GE. The tranny will bolt up to a 3S-GTE. Not sure how it would mount in your gen 3 though.for the tranny would you be able to use another's cars tranny say a celica gt-s 's tranny for that matter?
How do you figure?Razo-E said:actually, if the 5s-fe was placed in the MR2 like it is in the Camry, the shifter would be in the rear trunk...
The engine is not upside down.the 5s-fe/3s-gte in the MR2 is actually "upside down", so if you drop in an MR2 3s-gte, the words your cam cover will be be facing towards the rear of the car, but the engine would work fine...
