    Cause you'll probably blow that head gasket in a few months.

    head gaskets on 5m's arent as bad as the 7m ones...

    but the reality is, its a big heavy car, that makes ~140 HP. it doesnt like high revs. swap the 5m out for something cooler.

    but i'm definitely not looking to buy wheels right now. i'm putting all my money into this 5-speed swap first. Then I need some new struts, mine are all bunged up. Only engine swap I would consider at this point in time is to put in a newer 5M. maybe a 5MGTE if I found a cheap one since I have a perfectly good turbo in my garage.

    There is no such thing as a 5MGTE. You can't buy one, but if you want to waste a lot of time and money you can make one. Just like a 4AGTE, only available from people who have made them, not from any stock vehicle.

    You can turbo them and make a few extra hp. from what I've read they don't handle extra heat very well and don't flow that well. You might make an extra 100 horse if you invest a lot of time and money into it, but for less money and time you can put in a 1JZ and make 50 more horsepower than that, while being more efficient and fun to drive. I get as good or better fuel economy with my 1JZ than I did with my busted ass 5M, and I don't exactly have a light foot

    5mge turbo is not as cheap as one would think..to safely get it to run you need:

    msd ignition retard box
    safc or some kind of fuel management
    RRFPR
    fuel pump
    intercooler/intake setup
    probably a new exhaust setup, custom downpipe fab.
    oil lines
    wideband O2 sensor and gauge
    boost gauge
    a new head gasket
    new head studs
    a full tune up

    the list continues...

    5spd swap it...drive it till the 5m dies. in the mean time save up for a 1j. when the 5m dies, buy another from a junk yard for like 300 bucks, or blow your wallet savings and do the 1j.
