What year is my JDM 3SGTE engine

Postby Red_88GT4 » Tue Aug 06, 2013 4:34 pm

I just bought a 1988 all trac with a newer 3sgte engine in it. Can anyone tell me what year my motor by looking at this picture ?

90-93 from that picture. If you have a better shot of where the exhaust manifold bolts to the head we could count the stud holes and know if it is 90-91 or 92-93.

Most 92s have the 7 stud manifold, so that's not a lot of help. :)

But I can tell you it's a 90/91 [they're much more common anyways]. It has no throttle opener on the side of the throttle body.

You might want to do something about that intercooler, with no hood scoop it's not getting any airflow, so it's feeding really really hot air into the engine.
That's bad.

It also wouldn't hurt to get a heatshield over that manifold/turbo. That will help keep underhood heat down.
