How much is my engine worth?

Postby Autogloss » Wed Sep 15, 2010 12:38 pm

3S-GE BEAMS 67,000 miles on.

Looking at selling the Engine, manifolds, TB, ECU etc.
reason I'm asking is I'm looking at dropping a REV3 3S-GTE in from an MR2 Turbo. Tuned to 300 bhp.

Just wondering if you guys will know:

Anciallaries - Alternator etc- presumably will not fit from ther tezz onto that block?
im presuming the geatrbox will mate fine?
Wiring loom should be straight connections for dahs etc, just some additional wiring for new sensors to the ECU?

when/if you pull the block, i would be interested.
where 'bouts are you located?
i have seen good stock motors go for anywhere between 350 to 800 quid.
just really depends on the circumstances.
since you are pulling yours to put a new motor in, and nothing happened,
you would probably be in the upper range.

I'm sure toyotaGT done this conversion on another tezza so may pay to have a chat with them to see what's needed

There's a lad on ACNZA who's just finished putting a ST215 3SGTE into his Altezza. Only VIP members can view his build thread so no point me putting a link up. I'll PM you his email if you like
