View Full Version : my 3sfe/ 5sfe swap

11-01-2009, 10:33 PM
As the title says, i swapped out my 5sfe for a 3sfe because the prior engine didnt want to run anymore haha. The reason why im posting is because its an uncommon swap. I took the 3sfe head and block and swapped over the 5sfe manifolds, ecu, wiring harness, sensors, ecu, and even valve cover. Yes, i know, i went from a 2.2 liter engine to a 2.0 liter engine, but i needed an engine and the 3sfe fit the bill: $480 for the engine delivered.... posted pics , jus click on my name.

Don't feel too bad i was forced to do the same thing and now the car hates to accelerate. I definitely regret doing it but when money is tight you gotta do what you gotta do.
