3SGTE Swap Package

3SGTE Gen4 Toyota MR2 Swap Service

The 3SGTE is a fantastic engine and has proved to be a major player in the Toyota performance scene for multiple decades now. If you are driving your original MR2 or Celica turbo car, you have been running a second generation 3SGTE or "Gen2".

Even though the production stopped on these engines in the United States in the mid '90s, continual improvements and upgrades were made by Toyota to increase engine power, efficiency, and reliability over the following decade. We here, at Rat2 Motorsports, specialize in the process of swapping these newer Gen3, 4, and 5 engines into a variety of chassis.

Given their age however, nearly all original factory 3SGTE engines are in need of a rebuild. For this reason, we now rebuild the 3SGTE engines with forged internals and assemble the engines to be as new as possible.
