12 reviews for JDM Toyota 3SGTE Engine For Sale – Used MR2 3S-GTE

  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

  4. Graham Decker

    Bought my recent 3S-GTE swap from the folks at JJH motors. They did the compression test right in front of me and let me check it out to verify it everything was good. even though I came with my own mechanic, they didn’t mind and still helped all the way!

  5. Mario F.

    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!

  6. Joshua Cleverly

    Great service, and very nice customer service. They were able to help on the phone and through emails. Though their phone line is a hit or miss at times. You need to ring them like 5 times to get someone on the phone. Other than that they’ve been pretty solid.

  7. Tony Almeida R.

    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

  8. John Berringher

    Any JDM supplies you need, they probably got is in stock, if they don’t have it, they will go above and beyond to help me source it at the best possible price. What more can I ask for?

    Absolutely love you guys, and Ralph just always helps me a bunch.

  9. Tommy F.

    Always great service and solid warranty on all their products. They’ve been my go-to shop for anything jdm for the last year and a half, and they have not disappointed me once!

  10. Edwin Mayer Jr.

    great guys with a very knowledgeable team. Been dealing with them for about 3 years now, and never have I had any issues with their product or their service. Albeit the shipping times could be better

  11. Darren G.

    This is my 3rd purchase from JJH this year. Their prices are more than fari and their motors, are always top-notch, ready to plug and play. Highly recommended

  12. Collins Anderson H.

    Great purchase. About 45 days in and the motor has been super reliable so far!
