I don't care what anyone says 3s-gte's are crap motors.

and 400 is bullshit you are either making it up or the car is an unbelievable peice

regardless you will need a new head gasket

sounds liek we've found ourself a hater, the price does sound too good to be true but from what i have heard they are stout little motors......

it's just a little 4g63 wannabe engine that is only awesome becuase it came in some awesome cars. I love MR2 turbo's, love them. but the 3sgte is not my cup of tea.

with built internals and a good valve train it's amazing. but don't forget what I was driving a few months ago. the 4g63 is the top dog of the japanese super 4's. if only you could have have 4g63 powered mr2 turbo's

that would be a beautifull thing

I've heard nothing but good things about the 3SGTE.....
But those All-Tracs are kick-ass, I'd jump on it, especially for $400...

87 Supra Turbo
Geez man, are you sure it's not stolen? You'd be lucky to find a decent one for less than ten times what they're asking for this one.

As for knowing if the engine will need a new head gasket without looking at the specific engine, look no further than the illustrious 7M-GTE. Once you get the head gasket out of the way it's pretty well bulletproof to 400hp.

trust me

for 400 dollars it is going to be in shit condition or stolen. the guy selling it only has 17 posts on that forum anyways, and has yet to respond to anyone wanting pics.

celica all-tracks that run(all theyhave to do is run) that have straight bodies sell for around 4500 bucks. and the price goes up for ones that suck less and are modified or newer.

and has for how do I know it will need a new headgasket?
not beuase it's a 3s-gte
not because it's a toyota


but becuase it cost 400 and thats a common 3s-gte problem

oh don't worry, I am sure when(if ever) he shows you a pic of a ruffed up alltrack he will say "it runs a little ruff, just needs a little work"

which will probably mean it needs a new headgasket

or better yet he will tell you " it's got a small head gasket problem"

news flash you can't have a "small" head gasket problem, thats like saying "she's alittle pregnant" just doesn't work out.


have fun though

I agree, and to add a little bit. If hes selling it for 400 bucks, then he doesnt care about the car. if it does have a head gasket problem, chances are, hes run it with a bad gasket, causing massive overheating, then head warpage and all that. best bet would be to get someone like lemon busters to go out and tell you everything thats wrong with it.
