Hi All,

as far as you know, is the 3S-FE engine compatible with 3S-GTE gearbox ?

TIA...

well going off the assumption that the 3sfe block is similar to the 5sfe block the answer is yes and no. Everything will bolt up but the transfer case interferes with the block. Nothing some grinding shouldn't fix though

ok, thanks a lot mx!

And what about putting a 3sgte engine on a 3sfe awd gearbox (old Rav4)? :-D

That way should be ok also. You looking for some gear ratio changes?

Perfect!
I think not... old Rav4 doesn't have lower gears, so probably is a must to keep the original ratios for an off road application..

Thanks!

So wait whats the plan? off road rav 4 with a 3sgte or swaping the 3sg trans into something with a 3sf?

Off road RAV4 with 3SGTE engine in...

I just hope the 3sfe gearbox/transmission will be strong enough... :D
