View Full Version : 3sge swap

03-01-2008, 06:02 AM
Alrighty now!! I had a fun day at teh junkyards! Went to 5 different ones, spent $50 bux, and got all the interior and glass parts I needed.

I have located a shop that can do the engine swap for $1000 (I provide motor/etc), and it'll take a week. Another shop I use can do it for $600, and have it done in about 3 days, again I provide everything for the swap.

My question is, can I just provide them a 3sge harness from a 4th gen celica, the engine assembly, and ecu? Reason I ask is because I have located the following..




The junkyard said I can have all that for $30 bux :)

How bad do you need the car?

Send the wire harness to Tweak and he'll get it ready for plug and play.

Notice any first gen Celicas while you were there? lol

There were a few. Saw 2 6th, 10+ 5th, a couple 4th, handful of 3rds, and a 2nd. may of been a first, but it was hard to say (fire).

Why would the harness need to be modified though? If I use the 3sge ecu and harness, i thought the 3sge and 3sfe shared the same electronics for the dash and such.

TIm I bet you would be ok with just getting the engien, harness and ecu and giving that to them. I dont know for sure though, but the connections should be pretty much the same.

I can land a 2nd gen rebuilt GE motor for $500 shipped to my door, an ECU from a 89 gts coupe for $15 bux, now to find me a harness :):onnoes: I has a celi!
