I was walking through to see if they had anything good since I havent been there recently... and I found a freakin' 87 gts!! the whole 3sge was there, untouched, I was shocked!!
Do you guys think I should pull the motor and trans for my own 3sgte swap or just hold off until i can get a full front clip??

You'll likely spend as much turboing the 3sge as you would buying a 2nd Gen 3sgte for a swap.

Yep, not worth doing. There are always a handful of 4th gens at my PnP too, lots of 3sge's.

The blocks arent quite the same. Neither are the heads.

Not worth it.

Though I imagine there's a few people who'd like to get their hands on the 4-2-1 stock 3SGE manifold for use on their 5SFEs

i already grabbed a 4-1 off of a camry, but is the 4-2-1 better??
oh and the intake said t-vis, did they really already have tvis in 87, or was it a swapped intake manifold?

Yes all 3sge's had tvis.

If you can get it cheap then swap in the 3sge. Way better than the 5sfe.

Not ALL of em had TVIS. Gen3 3SGE had ACIS.

If the head on that 3sge was good, ie cam journals arent scored and messed up, you should let me know lol.

Didn't the 87 GTS have a cast iron mani?
I thought only the 88-89 GTS has the tubular headers?
