ATS Engine Swaps

ATS Engine Swaps

One of the most common questions we get is "How do I make my NA MR2 faster?" The 5S-FE is basically a Camry motor and does not have the cams or cylinder head for serious power. You could spend $4500 buying and installing a header, intake, cams, ported head, exhaust and an AFC and maybe, just maybe pick up 30 extra horsepower.

For approximately $5000 ATS Racing can basically double your current horsepower.

ATS offers Premium Plus ala carte options at the time of the swap at discounted labor rates such as Clutch Master's clutches, timing belts, oil Seals, downpipes, turbocharger upgrades, etc. We can custom tailor any swap to your exact budget and performance requirements.

ATS can also perform the MK1.5 swap (3S-GTE into 85-89 MR2) as well as 3rd Gen and 4th gen Swaps (subject to engine availability) and even automatic to 5 speed swaps.

All ATS swaps come with a 30 day warranty. 


MK1.5 swaps start at $9700. Contact for more infomation.

ATS swap history

ATS Racing did their first turbo engine swap in August 2000. Since then we have done over 260 swaps. We have installed all years/generations of JDM 3S-GTE motors into all years of MKI and MKII MR2's. Don't trust your car to a hack mechanic. We've done over a dozen swap repair jobs (botched wiring and incomplete JDM swaps/clips are usually to blame). Call or e-mail us to discuss your needs.
