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!
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.
