go turbo if power is what you're looking for. 3sgte's have more potential than 3sge beams. although the beams imo would have better mpg and are less maintenance in general so if you're not looking for more than ~200HP and just want to keep it that way for the most part (since there are less aftermarket parts for the beams engine), i'd go with the beams engine.
at $1450 i don't think full clips come cheaper than that.

You are not 100% correct...i bouth my clip from keith, or RPMgarage...his service is excelent and if you want you can even give him a call....my total shipped to a warehouse about 5 minutes from my house came to 2500 exxactly. 1500 for the clip, 500 for shipping and handeling, and another 500 for the clip to clear customs at the states. His clips are quality and if i had to do it again i would only buy from him.

if the seller knows his business, you should not be missing parts on an engine set, but a clip will always have extra stuff that you can find usefull. but for the cost of the 3sge, I'd go for a turbo engine or turbo your 5s.

turbo your 5s it'll cost you around the same as a 3sge swap and you'll have more power, parts ready available in the states, and detailed instructions as of what to do, where to buyand how to install almost everything. if I had a GT that's the way I'd go, especially with the new upgrades, fine tuning and different set-ups avaailable.

yes of course thats an awesome price. that clip has gone from $3000 to $1450 in about 4 months. Ive been wanting that engine clip ever since. and with only 36,000 miles, that almost like a new engine.

of course a clip comes with everything you need. you have a gt, so that makes things a little easier than people that have st.. that clip is cheaper than any engine on ebay or any internet site that sells japanese engines. you have to pay for the fees of when the clip comes to the ports. but you paying $2800 is really cheap price i think. but of course you can't just throw the clip in the back of a truck, you'll have to rent a trailer for some a uhaul or a place like that for somewhere around $100.

maikl produced 186whp with bolt-ons (check out his page to see the list of mods he has), im sure with cam gear grind and port and polish (if thats worth it) you can probably get around 210whp i think.

edit: what do you mean by this

i would like to have a beams engine, torn between that and a turbo set uup, any help appreciated

Hey Dude,

If you get the 3S-GE BEAMS (Or any any 3S-GE) from an SS-III it will have LSD standard, I garantee it. Just make sure the chassis code is E-ST202-BLMZF

If you get it from an SS-II it's unlikely to have it.

Get the SS-III Twin piston front brakes while you're at it, It should fit onto your GT brakes easier than GT4 brakes.

Lower the milage the better in regards to the engine and LSD. (A beams under 100,000 is young and healthy and full of life)

The trans/axel code should be S54 -06D for LSD

Hell, even get the superstrut suspension aswell, you'll have a real USDM SS-III, It is so much fun to throw around corners, make sure your tyres are atleast 215 wide though.

give us some pictures of those.

the E54 is the stronger version of the S54 and also comes with an LSD

hmm interesting stuff delusionz. good info to know!

and that 186whp with mods. so stock i believe is 169whp. check out the "beams redtop" website. just type that in any search engine, that site is full off info and keeps on growing with more info. they are almost halfway done converting the ss-III japanese manual with beams motor to english.

is the e54 stronger tranny than the tranny that comes on mr2 turbo and v6 camry, which is the E153??

THIS INFO MAY FALSE WILL LOOK INTO IT

QUOTE
about JDM version st202 :

Red-Top 3s-ge beams vvt-i have helical LSD gear-box S54-06D
both version in production from 1997 - 1999
SS-II(st202...no SSS) 3s-ge vvt-i
SS-III(st202 with SSS) 3s-ge vvt-i

about viscous LSD

SS-II (st202 no SSS) from 1995-1997 have viscous LSD + ABS
SS-III (st202 + SSS) 1995 - 1997 have viscous LSD


about UK and Europe version st202 :

all version with SSS from 1995- 1999 have visco LSD

helical LSD was only in JDM version st202 and MR2 SW20 (both 3s-gte and beams)

from here

but if you really want a good proper LSD TRD make one smile.gif (since the standard LSD usually only last around 100,000km)

**note that the TRD LSD for SS-III and GT-Four are discontinued



so is there any differences between the ST202 (non LSD) tranny and the ST204 tranny??
ST202 S54-06A
ST204 S54-02A

That's weird.. S54-06D is Helical? Would that mean our 1996 SS-III is helical or not?

yes 3sge with beams has helical lsd. here the info to back it up
http://www.beams-redtop.com/redspecs.htm

http://www.horsepowerfreaks.com/partdetail...mited_Slip/1357

i guess that websites sells them. hmm so your saying the viscious lsd that trd makes is better than the stock helical lsd that comes on the 3sge with beams??
how much would that trd lsd last.

it says that trd can only be applied to 3sge with no lsd whatsoever... is that true?

nope you have a viscous LSD in your SS-III pre-BEAMS. The BEAMS SS-II/SS-III have a helical LSD
and your brakes look the same as mine btw

first off the TRD LSD is not a viscious LSD, its a mechanical LSD. as for the helical LSD(in BEAMS) vs the TRD LSD I dont know. its TRD so its got to be good right?
few articles about LSD's

can be applied to the SS-I and SS-II, cant be applied to the SS-III due to the superstrut (which is why there is another part number listed for the superstrut and another for the GT-Four)

list of some tranny's
S54-06A
S54-06D viscous
E54-???
S54-02A
