View Full Version : Power graphs for 3SGE & 5SFE?

Can anyone tell me were I can find horsepower/torque graphs for the stock gen 1 3SGE and 5SFE?

I'm starting to think about my next autocross motor and I know the HP is the same for both motors, but the FE has 20 ftlps of torque. (I may have just answered my own question by looking up those numbers) I'm wandering if the torque curve on the FE motor is flatter than the GE, it does come in sooner. I'll have enough money by this winter to either rebuild a 3SGE or do a 5SFE swap.

HP 135 @ 6000
TQ 125 @ 4800

HP 135 @ 5400
TQ 145 @ 4400

You should take into account that the 3SGE is quite a bit more responsive to modifications. I'm betting if you spend a little extra on the rebuild, you'll end up with as much torque and more horsepower than a 5SFE.

Yea, that is another thing I'm considering.
