It is a BEAMS 3SGE. Worth lots of $ in the MR2 community. Believe it came it MR2's (very few) and Altezzas. It is going to be hard as hell to put that into anything without a wiring harness and ecu... which will be almost impossible to find if you dont have them.

BEAMS 3SGE is the 200hp VVTI version of the 3sge. Like I said..... that clip isn't much without the wiring and ECU.

A COMPLETE CLIP sells for $4,000+. You would be lucky to get 1/2 of that for what you have. It's very rare though.... I would throw it up on the MR2 boards for best offer and see what you get. http://mr2oc.com

Typically one can build their own harness with Megasquirt, do they not?

BEAMS = Breakthrough Engine with Advanced Mechanism System

It's really nothing special, but it's a slight tweaked VVT-i engine. More power, while maintaining fuel economy.

it's special due to it's rarity stateside. As Russ stated, most mr2 guys that want to go the NA route will pay a hefty chunk of change for that motor(harness and all included)

I didn't meant it like that. I meant that BEAMS is nothing special compared to regular VVT-i engines here. In the stateside, it's rare indeed, but the BEAMS engines are common in Japan. :) So basically, it's a JDM engine.
