I found a pair of JDM 3SGE engines on craigslist. There is a second gen that is complete and a 3rd gen that is minus the block and might need some work. (I'm thinking about it as a parts pile more then anything). I'm going to get both for $350, thoughts?

And I have a 3sge head sitting in my garage (oh wait... someone already claimed that). Speaking of which.....:goes to strip head:

So your're actually buying one 3sge. Either way I say go for it. Do they come with ECU's and harness?

Right, buying one and a pile of parts. No ecu or harness, unfortunatly. Thinking that I want to have the parts around for a 5SGE project. Also, I am a Compulsive parts hoarder.

If they had the harness/ecu that'd be a steal. Otherwise I'd say swap on the Gen 3 head (I don't think that has TVIS anymore) and you should have easy good power with a Rev2 ECU since the knock sensor will tell the motor when to cut power.

Only thing is, you can go to a PAP and get that engine for $120 including harness and ecu...

Well, only thing there is I won't be able to find the gen 2, just the gen one since I'm here in the US.

Kinda thinking about trying to take this gentleman's lead.

He used a 1st gen head, and I don't know my 3sge generations that well so I don't know how much of the info will carry over. I still think it would be fun to try.

I was unaware the differant gens of 3SGE were mechanically differant, I knew the power output was but I figured thats all in the ECU...
cept the BEAMS, its differant

Well, thats the thing, I've spent most of the night looking, and I'm having a real hard time nailing down the differences. I know that the 2nd gen has ACIS instead of TVIS, other then that, I can't find any details. I also have no idea where to look to find myself a harness and ECU, I'm too much of a NEWB at this JDM stuff.

Sucks cause I really wanna take on take on this project, not enogh 3SGE's running around here in the USA.

Honestly, talk to Kevin (redrkt01) he seems to know the 3sge, and seems to be able to source parts form out of the country fairly easily.

Good advice man, I'll get with that gentleman.
