swapping motors for 15 hp is a huge waste IMO...but i think its only 10hp...either way you might as well swap the mr2 turbo motor (its heavy but easy to find parts and relatively cheap to mod)

I though it was 10 hp more because of the ecu they use and the higher octane gas they use in japan? How would that help using 91 crap octane over here confused

^^its worthless getting an engine from japan.
the extra hp is only from the ECU. they brought the car here and tuned it alittle for emissions.

plus the octane rating will help alittle bit also cz the jdm 2zz is programmed for running on 93+ octane

i dont think its the ecu i have been looking and i think its different motor parts but i could be wrong... im still getting it becuause im getting a hella good deal for the motor and i might be selling them in the futher im just going to do some more research...

i have to buy a new motor no matter what because my old on is blew up so i have to get something to so i might as well get a jdm motor if its cheaper then then rest of the usdm

okay!!! lets see i can have the motor cheaper than a usdm ship and everything which would you buy it from monkeywrenchracing.com for 1800 and they have usdm motors... and if can get a jdm motor for $900 ship flat... what would you go for? hard aint it grin

i think i might just go for the JDM motor

and you'd spend over 10 g's for a 3sgte? it doesn't bolt right in.. theres a lot of fabrication involved

10 G's on a motor with low gains...
I'd rather spend 10 G's on visuals for my car... then eat a snickers bar and drive in your car and then some how take a wrong turn and happen to run into a photo shoot but they dont have a car so you offer your car and get to have your car and picture on a cover of a magizine with hotties all over it..!

I agree, the extra HP comes from the setup & ECU, not the engine.
