Welcome!
You can get the bumper from any Toyota dealer.
There is a part number thread on the FAQ section.

The 3sgte swap refers to taking a motor from an all-trac (or, more specifically, a gt-4) and putting it into your car. They can be found relatively easy on ebay and should run you roughly a grand. They come from Japan and have relatively low mileage (40K-60K).
BTW, I loved my '92 GT-S, should have NEVER sold her. :x :cry:

Engine runs about a grand but you will need more than an engine.
ECU, AFM, harness, MAP sensor, hood w/ scoop, etc, ....
The best way is to buy a front clip (half cut).
You will have everything you need (given that you use your current 5SFE tranny)
and extra AWD tranny, and other leftover JDM stuffs to sell to others.

Weeelllll not EVERY dealer. I talked to my local parts guy when I was buying mine and he told me that:

A: They arnt going to have it as a normal "stock" item (Special Order of course....obvious)
B: Its a surprise if their warehouse or any other local dealer with have it so they can get it (In daytona their warehouse only stocked 1!...the parts guy was surprised they even had it)
C: If you are in a region that none of the warehouses can stock it....they wont bring it in from Japan or get it in a region that does have it...(I asked him about shipping incase their warehouse didnt have it)

About two months ago I found a guy on ebay who was selling new bumpers, primed, for $100. I should have bought it at the time b/c now I can't find the seller :doh:

Luckily if I need another one ( I have one waiting to be painted for my car)

The owner of the Honda dealership I work at also owns a Toyota dealership. So I can get it for somewhere around 10 over cost (if the parts guys at the toyo dealer are feeling nice that day).

If I can get it cheap I can sell it back to someone for cheap...Gatta see how much I can get it for though.

Doesn't anybody like the stock look? :shrug:
I can't wait to make my car look like it did when it rolled off the line. Oh well, that's the fun of working on cars, you can make them what you want. 8)
