Engine Swap

I'm an engine importer of Japanese engines. Looked at the xB's a little and it's a different configuration with the rear mounted exhaust(makes alot more sense when you think about it), but there has to be something that will swap into this....................

3SGTE? 4AGE 20V?

Hell, that might be worth doing, $800-$1200 for the engine...but with the engine and tranny, what other parts would you need for everything to run smoothly?

i hate 2zz's.


4ag's are cool but theyre old and the 20v would be impossible to be legal in cali , and any parts for them are horrendously expensive.

Re: Engine Swap

Justin (wraith) ended up putting a 1ZZ-FE into the Echo and sold it to a friend of his. I talk to Justin quite a bit, Mechanically I know what needs to be done,The wiring isn't too hard but it can be done. Last time I saw the Echo it was running, and the bugs were being worked out, and a supercharger was slated to be installed, but that was like 2 years ago, I don't know the current status of that car.

Also, Justin (wraith) is the one who also figured out how to mate the C160 6 speed to the 1NZ-FE.

The Millennium Toaster lives again!

Re: Engine Swap

$10k is what it'd cost for the shop that actually does the swap to do it. I already got a price quote on it. That includes a full megasquirt tune as well. If you did it yourself, you could save quite a bit, but it can definitely be done for under $10k.

Re: Engine Swap

i'd say you can do everything you need for 2K if you do it all your self. Motor trans will run you about 1000, megasquirt, exhaust, and a baseline tune, beer, smokes, and pizza for the weekend should take care of the rest of the funds.
