KORacing Products » Toyota MR2 MK2 » Engine Builds

Due to changes in shop activities, we are not taking on new engine builds at this time until further notice. We will update here if that siutation changes.

Intended to be a basic rebuilt 3SGTE, KO Racing style. We use all premium rebuild products, forged pistons, new bronze freeze plugs, mild casting cleanup on the head, etc. Just like Toyota made, only better.

At KO Racing, we've been building 3SGTE engines for almost 10 years, and are only now offering this service publicly in 2011 because we are now comfortable we can produce a reliable, well built engine package for the MR2 and Celica turbo enthusiast. Complete from the valve cover to the oil pan, bolt on your accessories, intake and exhaust manifolds, turbo, transmission and let 'er rip!

  • ACL race bearings
  • Mild port cleanup/smoothing
  • smoothed combustion chambers
  • 200 grit lapped head and block surfaces (trues surfaces with minimal finish for metal head gasket)
  • JE Forged pistons (+.020" overbore)
  • Total Seal Custom High Tension Piston Rings
  • Cometic head gasket
  • Micropolished crankshaft
  • Balanced rotating assembly
  • New valve stem seals
  • New Toyota high volume oil pump
  • New Toyota water pump
  • New Toyota timing belt and tensioner
  • Socket head valve cover bolt kit
  • ARP rod bolts on reconditioned stock rods
  • New Toyota engine overhaul gasket set
NOTE: A core engine is required for this rebuild service

NOTE: it is assumed that the core engine did not have a rod bearing or similar type failure. If it is a rod bearing failure motor as the core, additional charges will need to be paid for a new oil pan, oil cooler, and pickup tube. These parts can sometimes be obtained in good used condition, but if not, they have been discontinued from Toyota. Aftermarket solutions for oil cooling do exist but at additional cost. Reusing an oil cooler from an engine that is known to have had a rod bearing failure, or oil pan (gen2) from the same will result in nearly immediate demise of a freshly rebuilt motor. We check all oil coolers prior to installing for metal debris inside if supplied by the customer.

NOTE: Motor is provided with a warranty against defects in workmanship. No mileage or time based warranty offered unless installed by KO Racing, and the engine is broken in by KO Racing. Component level warranty are from the manufacturer only. KO Racing cannot be held liable for any incidental damage or additional cost incurred due to a part, or engine failure.

NOTE: Core Exchange is typically required, though we have a few cores we can provide on an exchange basis to limit downtime.
