I have an 84 that has a blown engine (connecting rod right through the block). So what I was wondering was where would the best place to look for a 5mge engine be in Canada?

i cant suggest anywhere in bc that could help you locate a motor, but id say your best bet is to find a running but rusty/damaged supra or cressida and swap the motor into your car.

I'm located in Washington state, and can provide you with a low mileage 6mge engine, with new cam seals, oil pump driveshaft seal, main seals, valve cover gaskets, water pump, and timing belt installed. The price for this engine (shipping not included) is $1052. Take care.

Rabid Chimp - I assume since you are in Washington that your price is in American money? also, what would the shipping cost on that, roughly?

Im new to the whole engine swaping deal, so could you fill me in on what the differences between a 5mge and 6mge would be? are all the mounting holes ect the same?

the mounting is pretty much the same i'm pretty shure. and the only diff's between engine's technical wise are it's a 3.0L instead of the 2.8L. the 6m is going to add about 30-60 horse i belive just with the diff engine. then you can mod it alot and it will be alot more powerful than the 5m. i was going to 6m from aaron also but have to part the supra out due to wouldn't be able to put it on the road cause of insurance costs. but if i was you i'd definatly buy it from rabidchimp. it'd be a really nice investment. also i bleive you would have to use your oil pan unless he inlcude's it with the 6m. the 6m is pretty much a plug and play swap you can use the same ecu and everything. so either look for a used running supra engine or cressida in a junk yard as long as it's running or go with rabidchimp 6m. some one correct me if my info isn't correct thanks.

Shipping for the engine to B.C. will cost you approximately $125. If you e-mail me [email protected] with your Canadian postal code, I'lll get a definite rate quote for you. The 6mge is a direct replacement for your mutilated 5mge. Tranny, motor mounts, etc, all line up perfectly. You will, however, have to use your 5mge wiring harness, since the harnesses that come on these 6mge engines are hacked up. If you have emissions testing there, you may also want to use your 5mge intake manifold, as the 6mge manifold does not have provisions for the EGR (exhuast gas recirculation). I hope this info helps!

p.s. My price is in US funds.
