Ehh that gap is way to obvious to me.



You can reuse the stock exhaust however you'll have to put the stock manifold back on versus using the header that comes on the 3sge. I end taking the midpipe and modifying it to mate up with the 3sge header.

^^ Exactly what I did. I had a reducer mated to the BEAMS b pipe so the car isn't obnoxious. Wifey is only half the reason I kept the factory GT exhaust. Neither one of us appreciates a loud car. Overall, the exhaust only cost me $30 as opposed to what it could have cost to have it all replaced. But you know 2" piping is going to hold the 3S back.

I had a surprisingly productive weekend.

Sold the 5S engine & wrapped headers; bought my own Engine Crane & Engine stand and assembled them both.

Cleared out a bit of space in the garage to work, and now its time to mount the 3SGE to the stand and get to work. smile.gif

Sold the 5SFE over the weekend, so I decided to get to work on the 3S last night.

Started to remove the heat shield, alternator, and upper T-Belt cover... lookit those extractors! W00t!




Decided to mark the t-belt/cams for easy replacement.... and noticed the idler/tensioner pulley. kindasad.gif





The T-Belt seems healthy... which begs the question; was it recently replaced, or are the kms on this engine really that low?






Question: Does this sticker mean the t-belt was changed @ 100,000kms? Or that it needs to be done at 100,000kms? Translator please! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

The other night I was unbuttoning the engine harness from the block, etc and I found this just lying in a pile of wires on the transmission, under the dizzy. Not connected to anything; and it looks like it was snapped off at one point.

I'm hoping this isn't part of the 96+ EGR system frown.gif

... can anyone help verify for me?

That's part of the egr system but that's not 96+, it's early 90s.
No 6 gen has a connector like that, that's 5th gen.
Probably a repair/replacement part for something that broke. I wouldn't even worry about it.

Oh ok. So maybe it came from the guy I bought it from. He had a 5th gen he was going to swap this engine into. Probably a spare part of his that got tossed into the pile.

Phew. Thanks Dustin!

No not yet... but here's what I'm thinking:

I have a POS harness that has been un-loomed (lets call it that for lack of better terminology at this point), and I've just purchased a mint one from 3WayStunna (so you won't have to keep an eye out for me anymore Rusty) - I'll just extend the loom myself... or pull a Dustin and make a new hole in the firewall. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

... I haven't really decided yet, but I have options. smile.gif

New harness came in the mail today - finally, Canada Customs had it for about a week. kindasad.gif

3WayStunna - you're a life saver dude! Thanks for the hook up!

Side by side: (see the mess I had to deal with, ugh)





Fusebox Included:



New ECU:



Can anyone tell me the differences between these two?

Got some more work done last night - removed the BENT tensioner from the Timing belt assembly - must've gotten bent in transport. kindasad.gif


Started with the Intake Manifold and the Throttle Body:



Not sure what this is, but I figured I would document it anyways:



IM off:
This was quite the juggling act to get this IM off... had to un fasten the TB first, then remove the engine hook; only then would the IM come off without a fuss... interesting set up this 3SGE is...



Gasket appears to be in decent shape - but there was a bit of oil on it, is that norm?:
I also unbolted the fuel lines from the rail before removing the IM - I just re inserted the banjo bolt so I don't lose it. tongue.gif




Now to finish with that old nasty wire harness...:




Now for the driveshaft pulley (or harmonic balancer??):
Also, here's a decent shot of the bent tensioner pulley bracket - see how close it is to the exhaust cam gear? Thats not good... it was actually a tight squeeze to remove it. I felt the cam gear afterwards and there seems to have been a bit of scoring/marking... but I could be imagining things too.



It looks pretty beat up... maybe some of it was from me kindasad.gif :???: - I swear I was gentle:






Here's where I left off last night before packing it in:







So far the engine has been a dream to work with - no signs of leaking, the block doesn't have any cracks that I can see, and aside from the bent tensioner bracket & the MR2 ECU, I haven't seen anything visually alarming...

Hopefully tonight I can drain the oil, remove the valve cover, the distributor, and the water pump.
