TUNING THE TOYOTA 3S-GTE (SW20)

It was up to Scotland for my 12th Tuning Session over the last 3-4 years..and I was presented with another nice example of a mildly modified SW20 sporting the Toyota 3S-GTE engine… Simple mods partnered with an Apexi PowerFC fully programmable ECU meant full control over the engine for me. Once I’d finished setting it up on what was a very warm afternoon she netted some good torque and whp but these engines could always benefit with perhaps water/meth kits to bring intake temps down..

The owner already has the bug and future modification are on the way so Ill be expecting to see him soon. Perhaps Tuning Session No 13.. Who knows.. meanwhile…. Enjoy the extra boost of power and torque ๐Ÿ™‚

    I brought my Toyota Mr2 to Hypertech in Scotland for Steve’s 12th mapping session in this part of the country. I hadn’t heard of Steve before speaking to Duncan,the owner of Hypertech,but he could not recommend him enough. I decided to put my name down for the full mapping session and had a look into FC Tuning and the feedback Steve had received and was pleasantly surprised by what I found. When it came to the day of the session I was a little apprehensive as I had built the engine myself and never had it on the dyno before. By the end of the session my worry had turned to delight as my near standard mr2 (apart from breathing mods) came out of the dyno with approximately 285bhp and 300ft/lb of torque. My opinion is that you will struggle to find someone with so much knowledge of different tuning systems,different cars and engines, and have the patience to spend time speaking and explaining things to you. I honestly cannot recommend Steve enough and I for one will certainly be getting him to tune whatever I have in the future. Steve,you are a legend mate. See you soon I hope! ๐Ÿ™‚
