5 reviews for JDM Toyota 3SGTE Engine For Sale – Used Gen-4 MR2 3SGTE

  1. Patrick H.

    I bought my MRS 3sgte back in 2020. Parker from JJH called me and told me I was getting a one-of-a-kind, clean 3sgte motor. and he didn’t lie. I’ve got the pics to prove it before installation. I have never seen a motor this clean. Looks like it just came off the assembly line.

    Great stuff. I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED JJH Engines! Thanks, guys for being so legit!

  2. Gary

    Awesome inventory, top-notch gear!

    Got a great replacement 3sgte motor from JJH Engines. Absolutely love the fact that they were able to get my delivery done right in the middle of the pandemic. Tough it did take a lot longer than I expected, a little over 11 days to be exact. Covid delays perhaps. It’s been a little over a month since I had the engine swapped and everything looks good so far. Really clean, low mileage motor. Thanks guys!

  3. Jimmy

    Installation was a little fussy but the folks at JJH hooked me up with an awesome rev chip the modified the entire RPM span of the engine and made it even more badass.

    Awesome stuff

    Ordering these online is always nerve-wracking for me, especially after my last experience with eBay, where I had to wait for 2 months for an engine that was supposed “7-10 day shipping”

    Once I placed my order with JJH, Ralph from their team was quick to email about the order and provide the necessary specs and details of what I should be expecting. – That was quite pleasant as it clearly indicated their commitment to providing quality customer service. I followed through with the emails, and everything else went smooth it only took about 9 working days for my newly purchased 3sgte engine, so I definitely won’t be hesitant to order from you guys again. Thanks!

    The engine I ordered, took way longer than expected to get here. I was looking towards a 3 to 5 days delivery but it took a whopping 9 days to get from Houston to FL. That’s unacceptable.

    Besides that, the motor has been a solid swap for me. Packs a full punch in my ’99 Rav4
