    Do you know that the engine you got out of the MR2 worked?

    what year MR2 did it come out of?

    which engine harness did you use?

    which ECU did you use?

    is your battery dead? are you sure?

    could be the starter itself, easy way to check would be to swap in the starter from the blown 3SGTE

    When you say "all the starter dose is click and drains the battery", do you mean that the starter does not turn the engine over? Before you swapped engines, did you make sure the one you put in turned over by hand?

    How do you know the battery is good?
    Put a volt meter to the battery, turn the key to start and hold it and read what voltage comes up? ..just cause it reads good doesn't mean its good when under a load.

    where did the alltrac harness and ecu come from?

    Did they come from the same car?

    Were they both in this car when it was running the previous 3SGTE?

    When you say the previous engine blew can you be more specific as to what happened?

    Have you checked all of the fuses?

    Just give us as much information as you can. People have a lot of questions but you are not giving out much information. People on this site really do like to help out in these situations, they like to solve problems.

    the harness and ecu where in the car when it was previously ran i have checked all the fuses and what happened to the old 3sgte is cracked head gasket and hydrauliced to motor and the piston came out the side of the block
    my best guess is its shorting some where i don't know where
