3SGE intake manifold on a 3SGTE??

Postby trd-at » Mon Feb 01, 2010 1:32 am

So i was wondering if anyone out there has done a 3sge manifold on their 1,2,3 gen 3sgte in a 185. I was also wondering if this swap will prove any gains or losses in power? Does iot bolt up to the gen 2 head? Any answers in this direction would be helpful. Thanks all

Gen 1 head (5sgte) . Will also bolt up to Gen 2 head. makes it cleaner and easier to do tune-ups.

There was a thread about it over on mr2oc where a tuner named RickyB (I think) was involved in where the guy said he was able to take out fuel and add timing on cylinders 2 and 3 cuz they weren't leaning out anymore. So yeah, better air distribution. Not only that but it keeps the IC piping away from the valve cover which is a huge plus.

What all had to be modified to use this manifold?

I'm pretty sure the stock braces wont work, what about the vacuum lines on the back?

No vacuum ports on the back for me. All the vacuum ports are up front. I coudlnt use the brace on my set-up because its a 5sgte. All you have to do is notch the throttle inlet to match the iacv on the gte throttle body.

Oh and the csi won't fit. If you can find the 3sge csi or any early 3sfe with csi will work.

Interesting. There's a few gen 4's at my local wrecker. I'm gonna have to investigate them a bit more closely.
