Did pipe convert this car to 4WD or was it imported for him?

I will never understand why he parted the car in the first place. When you get it finished I will have to drive out and see it. What are you plans for this car?

No official plans yet, nothing set in stone anyway. In a nut shell, I want a 300hp car again like my 184 but maybe with a supercharger instead of turbo and I want it to be able to pass emissions anytime it's due, easily. Other than that, some chassis stiffening mods, wheels, suspension, front lip and mud flaps? I'd like to keep it more subtle than my 184 but still super rad 8)

What about a 2GR-FE? Is it even a bolt on motor to the E154F trans?

It will bolt to the trans but I hear the transfercase won't clear the block.

Unless you have AWD test facilities there for smog, I would imagine a beefed 3s would pass there just fine. Although a SC'ed motor would be bad ass!

Dang tecker, I will have to look into it more, maybe some tweaking can be done :shrug:

I had issued getting my 3s to pass emissions, one of the reasons why I'm looking forward to a different swap. I did have an aftermarket ECU and junk but it was still trouble.

Ah. Well, if looking for something different, completely understood.

The reason I said anything is cause here there are not many, if any, inspection shops with an awd sniffer, so to check the emissions it was just with revving the engine. No boost makes for easy emission tests lol.

the 2grfe is the end game plan for my alltrac. In the process of buying my first home so its in the research phase.

My plan is 2grfe turbo, they make 280 to the tire in mr2's. So i figure should put down some impressive numbers at 10 psi. '

If you do choose to swap the 2grfe please document everything to do with making the trans work.

Will do Teck, I'll try to find out if the tranfer case clears the block and go from there :)
