View Full Version : 3SGTE rebuild - Parts Ideas and consideration

08-23-2011, 10:07 AM
G'day everyone

So I'm starting to consider rebuilding the engine on my car. At the moment I have a ST215 3SGTE in a ST185. I have heard that the Rods arent that spectacular in the 215 espc when more boost is added. So before I do any purchasing of equipment I just want to get some peoples opinions and ideas that I could consider. What I am to have is a decent 2.0L Turbo 3sgte that will be a good around corners and pick up speed quickly out of the corners. I will be running a FMIC soon enough and already have a full 3" exhaust system from the turbo :amuse:
