I did a search and found a few people asking questions and said they was doing the swap but yet never found anyone who showed pics and actually said that they had done it.

Anyone here have a Gen 7 with the 3sgte?

There are a few out there. Been done a few times successfully. The three most popular from what I know.

The link below is old. I have recent pics of that set up. That car is local to me. Has more done to it now, and still running 10+ years later.

Not trying to discourage you, but why don't you work with what you have? Plenty of potential. Check them out. You'll have a lighter and faster (than many All-Tracs) car.

The only problems with sticking with the oe engine is I've already dumped so much money into my 5sgte. Hell I'm probably 15k in parts between the fuel, engine, and turbo, clutch. The heart is the platform. I don't have anything in the body not to mention that the inside isn't super clean, no hood, fenders rusted, no front bumper, body is rusted out.. Only good solid parts are the doors n rear hatch honestly
