2.2ltr Mr2

Recommended Posts

I'm currently looking at an MR2 in the UK, it's a 1990 N/A GTI spec. The owner said it has a 2.2ltr, and that a new engine was dropped in at some point. It's a Jap import. I have a feeling that the owner doesn't know too much about cars and just liked having an MR2 (it's been well looked after and service history).

Anyone know what engine this could be, or maybe he's wrong and it's the standard 2ltr?

I think the yanks got a 5SFE engined 2.2l version instead of the 3SGE NA we got over here?

No idea if the 2.2 was sold in Japan too, but I guess it means the 5SFE would fit (was it fitted to any UK cars that it could have been swapped out of?).

yep easy way to have a 2.2turbo as well. no expensive stroker kits req.

it is possible it has had the 2.2 5S-FE droped in as its quite an easy swap IIRC

The 5SFE is a joke... 100bhp!! why anyone would put that in an MR2 I don't know.

I'd hope it's around the standard for an NA 90 MR2, i.e. 153bhp I think with the 3SGE...

And if it's a stroker kit then what kinda bhp? thanks for the info lads.

yeah but you use the 5S-FE block, crank and rods, fit some Forged pistons and bung on a REV 3 3S-GTE head manifolds and turbo!

Check out MikeJC's car on IMOC. It's been developed by Patrick at Rogue. It's a 5SFE and it produces over 500bhp at the rear wheels.

:P
