View Full Version : HEADER/exhaust manifold compatibility

Not sure if anyones asked before, I may have missed it, but would a 5SFE work on a 3SGE? The reason Im asking is I am getting ready to put together the hybrid 5SGE for my celica, as I have an 88 GTS now as well. So, I just need a simple answer

It would make a 3S-FE.

yes, but depending on the year you may have to do some opening of the coolant passages in the 3sge head to match up to the 5sfe block.

5sge= 3sge head and a 5sfe block.

sorry guys I made a typo, could have sworn I typed header, I am wondering if the 5SFE header would work on the 3SGE one. BTW crisco i have a 3SGE sitting in the 4th gen, but it had a rod knock

it will bolt up to the head, but may not work with the rest of the exhaust with out some custom work.

Yes, the manifold would bolt up.

Hey man, when did you get a 3SGE?
IF you are doing a 5SGE, I DEFINITELY need to come down and give the project a look.

I am really interested in doing the 5SGE in my 4th gen if I determine the chassie can be saved.

Let me know if there are any weekends that you are really digging into the project and I will come down and help out.

Do you know buffalohunter on here? He said he had talked to you, but anyway I bought his white GTS

I had never actually spoke to him, but I may have PM'd him about the car, I was definantly eyeing it.
