View Full Version : 3SGE swap questions

04-02-2011, 07:22 PM
Found JDM 3rd gen 3SGE on craigslist.

Is there a link which provides info of what other purchases need to be made to make this swap? (ie, axles, etc)

Read @ Toysport that the JDM 3rd gen 3SGE is not "legal" in US as it doesnt have EGR. Virginia has yearly inspections but smog test is not done.

Am I better off looking for 2nd gen 3SGE?
Are parts for 3rd gen 3SGE readily available?
Any gotchas that I need to be aware of before making engine purchase?

Is part of the yearly inspection to look for emissions components? If not then get the motor.
