yes it was on a GT-Four GrpA from australia, aussie's car.
1UZFE.

thats a great idea getting a V8 in this but i would prefer insering a Toyota V8 :doh:


Actually it was a FWD celica that they convereted to RWD only, If I remember correctly. He just put the GT-Four parts on it.

I have been kicking around this idea myself.
I think if I went the rwd route, i'd stick with the 3sgte.

Anyway. My first car was a Mark 7. I think the engine has lots of potential, and a decent enough aftermarket. If you go thorough with the transplant, at least bump up the power some.

I plan on making it RWD only. To start with i think i will replace the stock egt. manifolds w/ some nice sized headers, also a chip will give me some extra ponies. after i get everything set as far as the engine in and lind up with the rear-end ...i will focus on what kind of rear end and what size gears and all....

Nope, it was a GT-Four. Banging out the floor pan to fit a rear driveshaft and differential is not an easy job to do.

I say you put a 3SGTE back in it and call it a day, or sell it to someone that may need an Alltrac. Im not into the V8 into the Alltrac or FWD thing.

Yeah, I don't think that such a rare car should be converted to RWD. There are lots of people out there that desperately want one, and bone stock would be fine.

its not bone stock...it doesnt have an engine in it...its not even capable of being ..."stock" it doesnt have anything in it. the interior is bare metal...the front end is entirley taken apart. As i said before i would never tear apart an alltrac to do something like this it. it's just that this car doesn't have the potetial to regain it's alltrac status..without thousands of dollars in parts. The reason i was considering this project is because i have the two sitting around and why not make one running car out of two...decomissioned cars. As far as selling to someone ...i have tried no one wants a car ....that isnt a car.

If it's gutted, still drop a 3SGTE, and run it as a track car. FWD or AWD. :wink: Just a thought

Well fine. I'm not suggesting anything anymore. Sounds like you've made up your mind anyways.

I'm not into this idea at all. I mean, you're only gaining around 100hp from a stock form 3sgte. Put the money into the one you've got running, sell the one thats gutted and stripped, make yourself a 400+awhp celica. If you're gonna do a V8 swap do it in a 1st gen rx7...my buddy put a 5.0 in his and supercharged it and it's putting out close to 600hp. Boo to puting a v8 in an alltrac....BOOOOO

I respect your opinion but you have to take the facts into consideration...my primary alltrac is well on its way to being a high hp machine,fully ,fully built internals freshly rebuilt head with oversized valves ...a new turbo and im even further on my way. There is no wasting money on this because i already have the car and engine to get it done... I have no desire to find an rx-7 to put an engine in .... i personally know of at least two people who have put chevy 350 in their rx-7 ...it's not a new thing...the reason i am thinking of the project because it is something new and it involves something a little more advanced than a small block 350 and a direct bolt up kit. god. if there are enough people in the world who are putting 350's in their rx-7 for someone to generalize a bolt in 350 kit for them....its not worth doing.
