The 3sfe even has a cutout for oil squirters. you would have to grind some metal off the back of the block and plumb oil for the turbo from the head. both are easy process. Ill double check on the piston valve relief to make sure it will work with out problems.

The compression height is a little different. but not much. I see no problems using the 3sfe pistons but it would be better to run 3sge/3sgte pistons for knock reasons.
