3SGTE Crate Motor and DIY Swap Kit - Rat2

$ 5,695.00

Our crate motors kits make it not only easy to install, but gives you additional peace of mind!

*Kit prices have increased due to import engine costs doubling overt the bast year*

Similar to the popular 2GR crate motors, our 3SGTE kit included all the necessary swap parts as well as additional engine prep and testing to your core engine. Here in-house, we assemble, prep, and test the engine, wiring, etc. to ensure you have as close to a complete plug and plug setup as possible.

Most of the kits we build used the 3SGTE Gen4 or Gen5 "4th or 5th generation of the 3S engine. These newer engines are brought in from Japan with average mileage ranging between 30-70k miles on them. Although they are 10 years younger and have almost 50% more power out of the box, the Gen4/5 engines bolt right up to any second-generation SW20 MR2 with minor modifications. Both the 4th and 5th generation 3S engines are similar in performance. The most notable difference is the throttle location. The Gen4 has a side feed intake manifold, more ideal for AW side mount intercoolers, where the Gen5 has a center feed (similar to the 2ed Generation factory engine the SW20 turbo. Gen5 engines are often less expensive, which they do have factory immobilized ECUs, which take more time labor to get running than the Gen4. Contact us for more details if you have any questions!

Custom turbo kits, stand-alone engine management, fuel, and other upgrades available for crate motors!  Get a plug and play 400+hp engine shipped right to your door. (local tuning recommended for standalone applications). Ask for details!

AW11 MR2

This engine is also very popular for those running the older AW11 MR2 chassis and looking for some serious power improvements over the almost antique 4AGE.

*This swap in the AW11 DOES require additional custom AW11 motor mounts AND a donor S54 or the preferred turbo E153 with matching axles. (either drivetrain from the second-generation SW20 will work). These are NOT included with our crate motors, but we are happy to help source these for you. 


Below are all the parts included in the kits. We also offer a universal kit for running this in any setup (no chassis specific parts included).  These kits are made to order at the moment. 4-5 week lead time at the moment. We can custom tailor each kit for your needs by adding or removing items when necessary.
