First off I got a good deal on a st205 engine set (basically everything from a clip) and I bought everything I would need to freshen it up. Then I picked up a low mileage e153 (from a 2000 Camry) and MR2 turbo inners and all-trac outers.

pics from the day I got the engine













^^ Manny (presure2) was pretty excited

then we did some things to the motor







^^ what a mess



mmm clean
the valve cover, heat shield, and intake manifold we coated with a high temp ceramic coating (no pics)

and I lagged the IC with this, thermo-tech
the "lagging" is an adhesive backed aluminized heat barrier which will reduce heat soak with the IC.









cleaned it out and this is what I'm running it in.



then axle madness began

first, 2 sets



then one set



spacer





and spare parts



I then did the wire harness so it would be plug and play for the car. I first wired in a seperat relay box for the IC and fuel pump relays but after I swaped I rewired it to the stock st205 FP and IC replay box, pics later.

not the best pic of the motor but something



then the st205 front end went on (see the 3s in the backround)



I really didn't take too many pics of things because every time I was with the motor, I was doing something to make the swap easier.

then the fun began Friday night - day one









remove motor, clean bay, remove battery tray
put in IC pump







and with st205 puke tank



I'm tired





Saturday - day two

extend the wire harness ? hell no. Cut a hole in the firwall and put harness through.



played with new e153 tranny, clutch, attach to motor and put in car





Sunday - day three - the exhaust. I already have a HKS cat-back so Manny made a b pipe - from the berk dp to the HKS.

started with this



and it became...



tacked and almost finished



done and a quick paint job (that got a little scratched when installed). Manny says "I stand by my exhaust"



and a few installed





and the exhaust cut out from Q T P



I have 3" from the turbo to the cat-back (which is 2.5") so as Corey did we installed a butterfly open exhaust valve. I put in a toggle switch so I can open and close the butterfly whenever I want. Quiet cruising with it closed and all the exhaust goes out the back OR I open it up, it gets loud and free flowing exhaust - no restriction biggrin.gif and more BOOST

put on a new "2000 twin entry turbo" sticker and done for that day.

BTW it started and purred like a CHAMP ! FIRST TRY !!!!!!!!!!!!!111!!!!!1!!!

The car runs great and feels INCREDIBLE.
Now I have had a couple of (expected) problems. The freakin axles.
First, driver's side axle just popped out on a test drive, car towed back to Mannys.
next day, have the axle machined to fit in the tranny and added a 1/2 spacer, good as new.
then on the second test drive the pass side axle popped out. Car towed back to Mannys.
The axle carrier came off the block - the bolts weren't tightened down enough. Sorted that tonight and now it runs perfect, hits boost very well but I think the carrier bearing is bad or the pass side axle is just plain bad. I hear a bit of noise from that side and I think I need another all-trac axle (I think I know where I'll be getting that from) and I'll rebiuld it again. And that's where I'm at right now.

The place all the majic happened was presure2's (Manny) garage and I had some help from Manny & Jenn, my woman Stef (hurley97), and Manny's cousin Joey. A small "pit crew" how each did their thing to help me.

I'll take and post up some finished pics tomorrow night or so, I've had a stressful and busy 4-5 days.

I forgot to thank Manny & Jenn, Stef, and Manny's cousin Joey for pitching in and doing what they did.
Thanks guys !

I did a lot of leg work before the motor went it to make things as easy as possible with little to no "speed bumps" along the way. I got frustrated a few times during the weekend but I kinda expected to at some point. I should post some pics hopefully later today.

Freakin sweet. Three reasons -
1. I didn't think anyone could completely pull off a swap in one week [Allowing for previous leg work etc]
2. The no re-wiring job is confirmed to work - I knew there had to be a way to do that [You guys gonna detail that process for future swappers?]
3. The electric cutout link laugh.gif I've been wanting to do this for years but has always sort of been on the back burner - now with your link I got no excuse. Nothing beats the sound of a 3S-GTE running open downpipe biggrin.gif
Badass work guys.

day one - pull 5s
day 2 - put in 3s/tranny
day 3 - connect and fill

a few more pics

with some help from the 3sgte/5sfe wiring diagrams and a few calls to Corey (silver94celicaowner) to clarify some things, the wiring is simple as pie. Even easier if you have this wink.gif

it does sound BA and it's a grear boost controller. Open I get 2-3 more lbs wink.gif



and the location of the switch





biggrin.gif

and just a pic of the ARSE and the first aid kit.





I have a pretty complete st205 swap now.
I thought about my power daily driving options and an st205 was the only way to go. I didn't want to be like everyone else and have a half-trac, I wanted it to actually be a GT-Two wink.gif

1. Make some videos!
2. Get to the dyno. I always wanted to see what a 205 swap could put down.
