Another 3SGTE rev2 engine swap :) 9 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 72
Hey i picked up another mr2 to work on
Its originally a rev2 turbo with bottom end gone,
The lad tried fixing it and now the engine parts are all over the car.
The plan is to take out the engine and put in the rev2 turbo engine which i had in my car.
Anyway here is the car and a few goodies
Car looks pretty clean overall, it was parked up for 2 years.

Lifted onto pallets today, a few nuts and bolts rounded underneath which will take time to loosen
Also car has no signs of ever being crashed

I still didnt get them out, i just managed to put it up on the pallets and spent all day trying to take the locking wheel nuts off since the lad lost the lock key for them, got them off in the end, hopefully ill have them suspensions out tomorrow.

Anyone know how to properly wire up that turbo timer for the a/f reading?
i cant find any info on it for connecting to an mr2.
It only has 3 wires
Black- ground
Grey- handbrake
White- oxygen sensor
Where is the oxygen sensor wire on the mr2??
Is it on the ecu or the wideband sensor??
Or can i use a seporate wideband snsor for it?

I got carried away with the car and forgot about this thread
Here is the engine anyway, new belt and everything else is perfect, i did the cover again and rebuilt the turbo:
