I am learning, please don't make fun of me for being a noob :).

What exactly do 5sfe and 3sgte (I think?) mean?

What are the differences between the two?

Those are two different engine codes/names

5sfe = economy head design, used in Celi GT/GTS 90-99 and camrys during many of the same years. 2.2 liter. Naturally aspirated

3sgte = similar block, performance head design, celica all-tracs and mr2s from 91-95 in the US. Big difference is that it has a turbo on it. 2.0 liter

In the US and Canada,
1st gen 3sgte : 88-89 Celica Alltrac
2nd gen 3sgte : 90-93 Celica Alltrac, 91-95 MR2 Turbo

Don't forget the 5SFE was also used in the Rav4s.

3 = Engine's generation (In this case, the third major revision)
S = Engine's Family (In this case a member of the "S" family)
G = Head Design ("G" indicates a performance orientated head design, versus the economy "F" design)
T = Aspiration ("T" indicates a turbocharger, "Z" for supercharger, no letter used in NA apps)
E = Fuel System ("E" indicates an EFI system)

Compare that to the 1MZFE (1st gen "MZ" family, economy head, EFI...in this case, the 3.0L V6 used in 94-06? Camrys and others)
Or the 2ZZGE (2nd gen "ZZ" family, performance head, EFI...the 1.8L I4 used in the 2000+ Celica GT-S)
