    Default Se82

    I've got a generation 2 3S-GE in my AE82.. I guess the GTE will fit as well, although I think it will be a tight fit and the cooler will probably need to be moved. Two of the four engine mounts need to be modified.
    The engine bay of the AE82 is as wide as the one of the ST162, but it is shorter.
    The intake manifold just clears the firewall and there is not many mm's of air between the exhaust header and the cooler. Also, the upper coolant hose exits the cooler straight into the header, so I will probably use a ST162 cooler instead of the AE82 one.

    You can check out the pics from my conversion (it is not ready yet) at http://pugho.no-ip.com/gallery/stuff/Keffo/

    i've seen a few of these conversions, and probably wouldn't recommend doing one unless you're good at custom/fabrication work because to get the engine into the engine bay is an effort in itself. There's about 5mm room between the chassis and the engine

    They do make fairly good power stock, but then again the 4age/t/z are much easier to install and have the potential to make huge power
    I have been pruned by old man river!!!!!
