You don't "need" new gauges. Remember that video of the guy who did the switch and was going 2500 RPM into redline? rofl rofl

From what I've heard a whole 3SGTE conv. runs about $7-8K !?! Anybody know? Anyways it requires some fabrication I think for it to fit right. But after you mod it it can make some serious hp. Only 7th gen 3sgte conv. I've seen was churning out 549 whp!!!

for the 3sgte be prepared to spend 10Gs for installion plus engine cost (unless they lessed the cost), and to get 500 plus horsepower out of any car you will be spending a hella lot of money

I agree, the 3sgte is like one step below supra status. The 3s-gte is capable of so much. The one guy in florida, that was in HCI magazine is around 600hp. I heared he might sell a kit for $10,000.
