3sge Beams

Recommended Posts

I have a 98 SSIII and she definetly has more than 167 bhp I also noticed that vvti doesn't kick in until about 3500 RPM and when it does it puts me in my seat. I know how to adjust VVTI on a Honda but is it the same on a Toyota. Plus I am also trying to gat any info on aftermarket parts to upgrade, My spark plugs are going bad and no one has any info on my engine. any and all info would help thanks. There are 3 SSIII here locally in Okinawa, Japan. Mine was brought from mainland.

Hey guys, I see there is a few people here looking for the 3SGE Beams engine, I have access to 3 of these, 2 long blocks + 6 spd tranny (RWD) which are from an altezza, and a 3rd which is a half cut but has an automatic gearbox (FWD).

One of the altezza's is going in my MR2 Bathurst when i have enough saved up for the install itself, and as everone is speaking in Euro's, which is worth alot more than the aussie dollar, Providing the engines are in good condition i would be happy to set you guys up. You would however need to check what your laws on importing are though. Dont hold me to it, But i reckon they would be around the $4300-$4500 Euro price range with shipping and insurance included

If there are any interested parties could you let me know, and i'll make further inquiries.

the beams is the 4th generation 3SGE with single or dual vvti (red top or black top)

Beams doesnt kick in, VVTLi kicks in and aint found on the Beams.

what you feel at 3500rpm is probs peak torque as the power band quickens.

These engines are very rare and expensive, parts are expensive too.

Have those considering the beams also considered the 2nd or 3rd rev 3SGTE. 200 -250 bhp rev 2 easilly attainable or 240 - 300 bhp to get your juices flowing on the rev 3.

The Carina E GTi also had the 3S-GE lump with 173 bhp, circa 95-97. They were all built in Japan so Toyota could use them for the BTCC with Will Hoy and Julian Bailey. They're a rare in the UK now although you may be lucky.

I have one which is a great Q car as the only give away is the twin exhaust pipes and a very small GTi Badge.

No, all Beams engines have VVTI. Thats what BEAMS stands for - Breakthrough Engine with Advanced Mechanism System - i.e VVTI.

He may have a Red Top Beams 3SGE and be running it on 95ron unleaded - meaning ignition is retarded.

Or it could be a high mileage engine. Unless you have a brand new engine you cant expect it to still make the same power when its over 10 years old. Its gonna wear down with age and make less and less power over time.

Its unlikely its a non beams rev 3 engine...as 170 is roughly what it was at new...so its unlikly to still make 169 on a dyno now after all these years...

I think you're right that only the SS3 had the Beams. I was thinking of something else. Id seen YAMAHA written on a late 80's or 90's Celica engine.

Where did that thread go anyway? He must have deleted it..how do you do that!

Yamaha was the maker of the 3SGTE cylinder head.

You'll see Yamaha on the cambelt cover of both 3SGE and 3SGTE engines (but not all, some early engines dont have a Yamaha logo). Yamaha worked on all the 3SGE's and 3SGTE's. They werent involved in the developement of the 3SFE.

A guy from a forum im on in ireland got his dyno'd recently totally standard put out 183bhp so maybe a loss over the 15 years of driving. These engines put out around 205 n/m or torque and the beam dual vvti in altezza around 216 n/m very respectable for n/a of the time and still today. This guy has taken 200kg+ out of his mr2 and is sitting with modded skylines on the track and says the car standard would sit with type r's no problem.

Hello, i am thinking of buying a Rav4 whoch has a black top. It has already done 320,000km. I am getting the car i an otherwise mint condition for $1000. I was wondering if this was worthwhile seeing that it has high kms. What sort of repairs would the engine need since it has done 320,000km. Cam belt was rwplaced at 175000km. I can't find any info on engine overhaul  info.
