    Default 3SGTE Swap in 93 GTS

    How difficult is it to swap out my 5SFE with a 3SGTE. Can I buy a complete engine and trans (LSD) with no 4 wheel drive trans. How much better is the Caldina ST215 and would it be easier for that engine as a replacement. Any info would be great.

    Check out the Forced Induction forum and also the build thread for Jasmine in my signature. There is a plethora of information on this board about the 3sgte swap. I can't say how difficult it'll be for you. It took me about 2 years to do my swap, however I had all kinds of setbacks and personal kinks pop up that caused the project to get delayed.

    Yes, you can buy a complete engine. Yes you can buy a transmission with LSD, however most of the time if you purchase from an importer it'll be an AWD transmission. The ST215 has it's benefits over the other motors, however parts are slightly harder to source but can be done.
