3Sge In Ke16

Recommended Posts

(snip).. should be around 890-920kg. With 180kw at the wheel's it won't be mucking around. (snip)

 

Is that all?

I've done a 3sge Gen 2 swap in a KE25. W58 gearbox, T series LSD, coilovers etc etc. I did recess the firewall, but didn't really need to.

 

Got it regoed in Tassie.

 

As far as weight goes, my 3sge was only 9 or 14kg heavier (yes, with all bolt ons) than a 3k. And the balance was 53% up front, and 47 rear, with just under 1/2 a tank of fuel.

The guy I sold it to did have issues with rego in NSW because of the firewall mods.

 

Don't know how you would go with a beams in a KE1X, with the standard steering- it would possibly foul - hitting the belhousing when turning sharp.

I ended up doing a Rack and Pinion conversion using AE86 stuff. That was much better.

 

And as far as power delivery, well an injected twincam 2litre is WAY more torquey and happy than a K series motor that's tuned within an inch of it's life.

Nothing wrong with "old school" horse power. My 7K has been in my car for the last 3 years, done plently of race events & daily drives with nothing but regular oil changes. Makes 105hp at the wheels, easy to drive and starts every time ( unless the batterys flat ). No engineering issues, easy to maintain and service and to most people looks just like the original 3k.

I'm not sure how old you are but for the less experienced driver there's enough grunt here to get you into serious trouble. As for the weight thing, my KE17 comes in at 833kg with me in it, 3/4 tank of fuel and a half and a bit cage. My car also is pretty much complete including carpet, heater, seats etc. The only things i've removed is the front bumper for looks and the back section of back seat for the cage fitment.

If you want to do the Beams thing, better in a KE70/AE71.

std beams makes 210 hp at the flywheel so about 115 to 130 kws at the back wheels .no way a std beams makes 180kws

 

Quite correct- 125RWKW would be the norm in Altezzaclub dyno runs on stock motors. Sadly we're pushing 1360kg of luxury lard around...

 

Love that lifted wheel Gav!!

I realize this is an older post but I'm doing exactly this... ke16 with a beams. It does not fit but can fit with mods but I'm going a bit further. I'm also doing suspension mods... ae82 cross member and suspension and adjustable coil overs. Haven't decided if I'll narrow the cross member to make track width the same as stock or if I'll use flares. Time will tell I guess. you can see some of the progress on instagram @defender_jon
