Before the shit starts flying.

I just bought a 4th gen GTE (st215) motor/ecu/harness. The next few months will be a bunch dumb questions, mostly just issues with transmissions and compatibly and that sorta stuff :)

You should document your build, so that when others go to do it, they have something to go on :)

I might be doing one of these myself and still haven't decided on the 205 vs 215.

why did you get a 215?

10-13-2009, 10:34 PM
Because I can?

But srsly...

It was cheaper than the 185 (was looking about 2,150 for a 185 shipped to my house, I got this 215 shipped to my house for 1320).

let us know how difficult it is to get shit? I always wondered how hard beyond gen2 it is to source things.

Pictures or ban.

Ill even pay to ban you if you dont take a rediculous amount of pictures.

Goodluck on the swap, Tecker(think his name is) should be able to help you out a lot.

It's easy for me...

I work for a global company with offices in Europe & Asia. I contacted my guys out in Japan and they will translate for me and order the parts I need, and shipped directly to my office here in AZ.

not hard.....just time consuming. ST202 3SGE & ST215 3SGTE have kept me busy.

LOL... nice response.

I really didn't have a hard time sourcing parts. I am working with a dealer in Japan, as well as one in NZ that has no problem taking payments via paypal credit cards & shipping to me.

All in all though, I just paid 2172 for a St215 motor, ecu, harness (uncut with all acessories & sensors) and a 3rd gen LSD trans e153.

Prices for the 185 shipped to me were the same, maybe 200 bux more.
