:crybaby: Hi!

I am buying a 1991 MR2, non T-Bar, but it doesn't have a spoiler! It is a UK car, but I am trying to find out the BHP output of the engine. I have wittled it down to either a 3S-GE (higher power) or 3S-FE (lower power).

Can anyone shead some light on this? I have the engine number, but doesn't help me much; 3S1462636.

Please put me out of my missery!

Cheers

James

most likely the 3SFE 119bhp model if its got no spoiler

look under the engine lid if you can see the cam cover clearly its a FE if its got 4 big pipes going over the top its the higher power GE

I believe the UK version without spoiler used the 3S-FE engine.

Also came without lower front lights & centre storage bin.

Do you have the Chassis number? I think I have list somewhere that indicates engine type according to Chassis number. I'll find it if you have the number - if not, there's no point me looking for it.

Ah, found list anyway. Info is in model code not chassis number, but you'll find code on the plate inside front bonnet.

e.g. from Dec 89 through Aug 92, code SW20R-ACMZKW should indicate a 3SFE engine. I've bolded the K as that seems to be what differentiates the engine type. e.g. the same RHD car for European Market with 3SGE engine would be SW20R-ACMZFW.

[EDIT]Just noticed I'd missed the Z out of this code SW20R-ACMZKW. Have corrected it above.[/EDIT]

I wasn't sure about the storage bin or the fog lights (or spot lights as they are referred to on one site). Though maybe they were fitted later when the spoiler was added.

Is your car a UK model or an import? UK probably as most imports tend to be tubbys.

Your's is the 3SFE babes.

I think they're normally listed as the "coupe" version and should be cheaper insurance. May wanna have a spy as it could save ya som pennies! :thumbsup:
