5SFE w/ 3SGTE head

Postby celicaGTS_T » Fri Jul 07, 2006 2:25 am

Has anyone or does anyone know if the head from a 3SGTE would swap onto a 5SFE block (1990 GTS), and if so, what is needed to do so??

5SFE w/ 3SGTE head

Thanks, I wanna go for something that the general public doesnt see happen. Would I have to run an octane rating higher then usual because I'm running higher compression?

Boosted or not? You've gotta let us in on a few of your plans so that we can tell you yes or no.

It's a 1990 GT-S. I'm debating whether or not to do a half-trac or just swap the 3SGTE head onto the 5SFE block, thats the ideas so far.

I would use the 3s-gte bottom end because they are already built for boost.

I'd use the 3S bottom end for a single reason, it's got oil squirters, which helps cool the pistons LOTS!
