Ok, so after several years of toying with the idea of a 3SGTE here is step one: Removing the engine and getting the engine bay cleaned up .

We got extremely lucky and came a cross a 3rd Gen WRC 3SGTE. When I say lucky, I mean LUCKY! The shop I got it from must have sent me the wrong engine on accident and we didn't know until we received it. the Top mounted W-T-A intercooler was removed so we could see the anti lag ports. We have all the parts at the shop.

Thanks bud I'll keep it in mind. I know we have all the components already in the car. We are just waiting on ic plumbing and that should be pretty much it. I'm in Africa right now but my buddy is working on the car. When I get back it should be done and I'll post pictures of the process. Thanks again.
