View Full Version : st184 3sgte swap

11-08-2007, 01:54 PM
hey guys,
just a few quick questions from australia here.
i have a st184 celica, doing a st185 3sgte swap into it, im using the 5sfe gearbox and just wondering what starter motor i use with it?
and with the wiring under the dash the big grey and white plugs plug straight in right?
and with the dash loom plug that goes to the ecu i have everything under control here but the 3sgte has a starter switch wire and fuel pump relay wire and the 5sfe doesnt at the plug what do i do here?

any help would be appreciated...

You can use either starter you want, they both work. The grey and white interior plugs will physically plug in (if the harness is long enough) but a number of the pins are in the wrong places. Normally you need to do a wiring conversion and extend some parts of the harness (if it's a JDM engine going into a LHD car).
