i am going to be swapping the motor out in my 5th gen and after lots of reading whats the best for a daily driver a stroked 5sfe or a 3sge motor. i can get my hands on both easy enough.



what do you think?

First off, Turbo.
But if you go 5SFE, there is no need to stroke it. The bottom ends on those are very strong, and 2.2L is plenty of displacement for it.

why not do both, build a 3sgte stroker

5sgte. Vip09 did this. He has a project thread covering it.

Since your putting this through the front wheels... I'd go for the 3sgte, then I whould size the turbo and tune the ecu to be gutlesss down low, and F-in insane up top.

Imo Turb that shiz and worry about hookin up and obliterated drivetrain pieces as you go. The cool thing about FWD, besides the braking charactoristics, Is the fact that it forces you to limit your hp to around 350ish which concurrently limits your build budget. If you can make 350 hook, handle, and stop like a race car. You can do some serious damage!

Exactly. You get more torque down low from the extra displacement. If I were to do a build, this is exactly what I would do. Providing you got the monies of course.

5SFTE ftw.

check out pressure2's build. 300+whp with 300+ft-lbs of torque?

beastly.
