the 3S-GTE holds the highest HP/liter rating in the world right now. some other good toyota motors are the 4AGE 20 valve and the 4AGZE AE92 SUPERCHARGED w/ INTERCOOLER. the mr2s that have them are known to pull the front wheels up with a few minor mods.19693SGTEOPEL said:If you want a motor better then the 2JZ-GTE I would say go with the 3SG toyota motor line up! It has been around a lot longer and it is just as easy to build up to 700 + hp infact most autocross pro racing SUPRA's (come stock with 2JZ-GTE) are being ripped out and replaced with the 3SGE/3SGTE motor line up!"
there is a tranny that the supra guys use that bolts up to the 3S-GTE. it will take the power and is pretty cheap, i just cant remember what it is right now. if it is really important you can try asking the people at http://www.toysport.com/.RITTER said:If you can find them in a FR setup, it isn't entirely easy. I've had my hopes dashed a couple of times on getting one of these motors.
but, how many people are going to put $100K into a motor to get 700+ HP and put it into a GT?
Thanks for the link , i'll look into contacting them and finding out about the tranny.
OK i worded that one badly, but in order to place a 700+ HP engine in a car and not have it wrap up around ya your going to have to put quite a lump of money in it to be safe and race worthy. Probably not very far from the $100K mark is my guess. Any way thanks for all the great links, and I like getting to hash about toy motors to boot. They really are the best bang for the buck for improving our little 30+ year old vehicles as far as I am concerned.it wouldnt cost $100k to get 700hp out of the 3S-GTE, i'll admit its not real cheap, but that quote is excessive. with a stock 3S-GTE you can change the turbo, intercooler, headgasket, and injectors and run 2bar (or 29.4psi), atleast thats what i have heard.
so i put hp instead of torque.. it was late and i was tired.19693SGTEOPEL said:HP doesnt bend cars Torque does!
lol whats wrong with stock 245 hp? opels are light cars too! you dont need more then 250 hp for a nice street car.
If you'll go back and read the post, you might see that I was commenting on a 700+ HP 3SGE you had used as an example, Not a stock swap. Another thing I was trying to get across to other readers was that with any swap, if it deals with more torque and HP there are certain other areas on the car itself that must be upgraded to cope with this increase, mainly for safety which all cost money and therefore drive the cost up. Quite true, a stock swap comes nowhere near $100K. Even the 22RE I have thought of only came to a $12k Mod but that was with some serious Engine,Tranny,Rearend,Brake,body,safety, and a few other styling mods I wanted to make. Of course it all goes with the thought of having just a 200 HP / 215 LBS.FT engine. I am sure I would want larger brakes possibly all 4 disc. if using the 3s-ge. From what i have read it is (around) 240 HP , depending on what gen. motor you receive (could be a s low as 160 HP). Be carefull LOL so much, you may burst a vein or something! Thanks for the contact #! I hope no one misreads anything into this post1500? how does this even come close to 100K lol even the highest priced turbo kit out there is 3k my gosh show me who told you it would cost 100K?
