Just so I'm clear, you took out the 5SFE and put in a 3SFE?

And u have evidence to support ur opinion?? If u toss the 5sfe intake/ exhaust manifold, injectors, and ecu on the 3sfe, you increase the output of the engine.

Sorry im not jumping on the 3sgte band-wagon like others. No offense. But obtaining a 3sfe from a 96-97 jdm rav-4 is more cost effective for me. So if u wanna bash me and my swap cuz its something you wouldnt have chosen, so be it.

Look to all the haters. a 140k 5s with rod knock is a slow motor. A 3s with a larger intake and larger exhaust and bigger injectors, with a better computer, and 40k is a lot faster. also the 3s is square bore * stroke. where the 5s is not. granet you might have 5lbs less torque with the 3s you have about 40-50 more hp with the this setup. ohhhh and the best part is it only cost 500 dolars from start to finish with a 6 month unlimited mile warranty where puttin another 5s would cost 1200 plus. with lame results. my 2 cents

If you think i am full of $hit. bring your fwd celica to the plate and race justin. I will pay for track time and give anyone with a stock 5sfe celica a thousand dollars if they win. 8)

So, you have a 3sfe for a rav4 in it now. Did you also swap the ecu from the Rav? Have you noticed a difference with this engine from when the 5s ran well?

Im running the 5sfe ecu, harness, intake/ exhaust manifolds, and injectors. I mean, slapping 2.2 parts onto a 2.0 liter engine boosts power a bit and yes its noticeable... It pulls in 5th gear :D

i'm game. let me know whether or not to even bother filling the nitrous bottle.
edit: better yet, i'll fill it and he can put it in his car. might give him a glimpse of hope.

keep the grand though. i'd feel bad.
