Postby Sthen » Mon Mar 03, 2008 9:51 am

Hi to all,
after swapping the 3sgte (st205) in my st202..with minor mod...i'm not able to manage power...
We're thinking to use an SW20turbo gearbox (with stock LSD)...
Somebody can tell me if can fit correctly in my car??

All your info can be usefull :)

Check the 6gc.net site, lots of info there on using the MR2's E153 trans in the ST202. There's an issue with the passenger side axle length, but its easy to solve.

Which version of the ST202 do you have? Do you have the version w/ super struts?

Good luck with the swap.

If you decided to try the ST202 SS2 (w/ super struts) Celica axles I mention in that last link, let me know if they work. I wanted to try those on my ST202, but I couldn't find anyone to import the parts for me. They are one piece from trans to hub, so you wouldn't have to mate MR2/Celica/Camry axles together.

Also, I've found the stock rear transmission mount to be pretty weak. I have a few mods to my 3S, and the amount of front-rear engine movement - even with new mounts - is horrible. I plan on replacing the rubber with urethane in the front and rear mounts.

you must use both the sw20 parts that go into the transmission because they are much larger than the axles of an alltrac.

i know this cause i just finished one yesterday.
